Heroes: Where is Mohinder?

Suddenly I'm afraid to ask because he might just pop out any minute on Heroes. I have to admit that, albeit there are a lot of things to improve on, I'm enjoy the new season so far and I'd like to think that it has something to do with Mohinder gone missing. Sure, the Carnies and Sylar are pretty much what's keeping the show afloat but somehow, I find comfort in knowing that I don't have to deal with Mohinder's annoying voiceovers and bizarre storylines anytime soon. The Fly, anyone?

Last time we saw Mohinder, he was accompanying Hiro and Ando to Sylar's funeral pyre but decided to leave to seek his "redemption" after learning that his father was involved in an operation in 1961 that hunted evolved humans.

We've seen a couple of episodes from Heroes season 4 and so far, no sign of Mohinder, not even a hint of why he's missing and where he's run off to. Is he back in India dwelling on his father's role in the original Company? Is he teaching genetics once again? Has he returned to his job as a taxi driver? Or are the writers still trying to figure out how to make his character interesting before they bring him back again to the fold?

I'm not complaining though. And whether I like it or not, he's going to turn up some time this season. I've actually read somewhere that he's sporting a new look for the Redemption volume. I'm just hoping that when he does resurface on Heroes, he'll be in a redeeming storyline and not just some frustrating side story that would further aggravate the show's fragile state. Otherwise, might as well not bring him back at all.

I agree. I didn't even realise he was missing and when I do think of him, I cringe, I didn't like fly storyline for him at all, his thirst for powers was understandable but the transformation was disgusting. The web thing! The skin peeling back. It's too weird and unlike the mohinder i was used too. But that's what's so good about Heroes, just when you think you know what's going to happen it flips around and brings back an even better volume and I for one can't wait for this volume to unfold. Loving the carnival storyline already...just not clare's so much but i hope it picks up.

This is possibly the number one puzzle of this season. I don't believe the character is gone for good, because he has been mentioned several times and I believe Sendhil Ramamurthy is scheduled to be in one of the next few episodes. I'm determined to keep an open mind about having Mohinder on the show. I liked him Season One, and it seems like the writers have taken away some lessons about what does and doesn't work from the last two seasons, so maybe his eventual return will be more in the spirit of Season One Renaissance and less of a death sentence.
To be completely honest, though, I mostly just miss him because he's pretty.
