After watching the third season finale, fans are now pondering on how Heroes season 4 will play out. We all know that the next volume is called Redemption and will begin six weeks after Fugitives, and we've also seen the prelude that features Tracy (Ali Larter), who now has the ability to take the form of water and is hunting down former agents of Building 26. More importantly, Sylar (Zachary Quinto) has been compelled to believe he is Nathan. Obviously, last season's ender sets up an epic internal battle between Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) and Sylar. The question is: who's going to be in control?
"Like one of those computers that self-teaches, the longer he stays in my body and the longer he assimilates my physical structure and DNA, the more control I get. So it becomes a battle of who's in charge," Adrian Pasdar told TV Guide of what to expect on Heroes season 4.
According to Pasdar, he was thrilled when he first learned that his character Nathan was going to "die."
"I wanted to try something new with Nathan, with the idea of the character," he said. "And I think they've found a much more interesting way to engage. It's much more interesting for me to play what's coming up than anything I could have imagined without dying."
And though it appears that viewers won't be seeing much of Sylar, who has now taken the form of Nathan, Pasdar assures that fans have not seen the last of Zachary Quinto.
"Zach's not done," Pasdar said. "There's Nathan, there's Sylar, and there's the point of view that you have to factor in. If I look up into the mirror, who would I see?"
Meanwhile, Pasdar remains optimistic that most fans will stick around for Heroes season 4 in spite of their disappointment towards the death producers promised that would stick but has technically been unstuck.
"Some things should stick, otherwise there's no weight if you're going to reset everybody's history every 10 minutes, and nobody's going to pay attention anymore," Pasdar said. "But as fascinating as concepts might be, ultimately it's people that engage viewership. If you're going to ask people to tune in week to week, you want to follow somebody's plight, not some nameless story arc. We've tried to be consistent -- sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. But I think we're going to come out on top."
