'Heroes' Season 4, Episode 19: Finale Preview - Featured

From the look of the preview, " Heroes " takes a twist of story, making Sylar no longer the villain. In the climactic season finale, everyone bands together in an effort to stop Samuel from taking the lives of thousands. Peter joins forces with his most unexpected ally to save Emma (guest star Deanne Bray). Meanwhile, H.R.G.'s life hangs in the balance as he and Claire find themselves trapped underground with oxygen quickly running out. H.R.G. figures out that Samuel traps them together so she can watch him die. Elsewhere, Hiro starts to come to grips with the decisions he has made and is called into action to help stop a disaster. Called "Brave New World", the last episode in volume 5 is to air on February 8. Despite airing the season finale, NBC has not announced whether there will be a fifth season. Back in January, NBC's Head of Entertainment, Angela Bromstad said there is a high chance the show would be renewed despite its struggling viewership. Creator Tim Kring was asked to pitch ideas for the new season and NBC would give it consideration. Source Here

Heroes: Will Lydia's Death Spell Disaster for Samuel?

Naturally, Dawn Olivieri was bummed when she found out Lydia, her character on Heroes, was being killed off. But she also saw the bright side: Lydia's death could blow the lid off twisted carnival leader Samuel's master plan. "My death was a chance for the audience to see just how far he's willing to go," Olivieri tells us. Lydia - a tattooed empath who can see into any person's soul - was the second member of the carnival to fall victim to Samuel (Robert Knepper), who earlier in the season killed his own brother and set forth with his egomaniacal plot. This time around, Samuel had one of his henchman open fire on the carnival while telling his "family" that they were under attack from the outside world. Lydia was caught in the crossfire, but played perfectly into Samuel's hands. His hope that the hysteria would eventually help him regain control and the trust of his people seemed to work, but Olivieri says Samuel won't be able to sustain the lie. "He's pushing it, and he's getting really close to the fire with all the things he's doing," she says. "I think the closer he gets, the more extreme his actions have to be, and eventually that just all implodes on itself. He's sinking cities, and he's killing the people that are close to him. It becomes too much eventually; it's catching up with him." The most likely candidate to play spoiler to Samuel's schemes: Claire (Hayden Panettiere), who returned to the carnival just before Lydia was gunned down. Although Lydia didn't get a chance to tell Claire everything she knew, Olivieri says the indestructible cheerleader will spring into action. "I think Lydia gave Claire the insight that the carnival wasn't this roving band of lunatics," Olivieri says. "She was able to convey to Claire what it really meant to the people that were there and that they wanted help. Samuel is not on their side. If anything, that gives Claire incentive to get her father [Jack Coleman] to help." Even though Lydia's dead, Olivieri knows the secrets that lie ahead in the finale. Of course, she's not talking, but she says fans will be pleased with the finale. "We know how these things work," she says. "Somebody's got to figure something out. The writers did a good job on the ending. There's a few twists that you don't see coming that I personally loved, and it made me crazy to know what happens next." Heroes' penultimate Season 4 episode airs Monday at 9/8c on NBC. Source Here

Heroes: Preview of Episode 4.18 "The Wall"

Tonight's installment marks the penultimate episode of Heroes' fourth season and yet it feels like there are still so many mysteries left to be resolved. Who will stop Samuel? What will happen to Sylar? And will there be more odd revelations? Hopefully, we'll inch closer to those answers in the episode entitled "The Wall." When we last saw Heroes, Matt went inside Sylar's head again and trapped Sylar in his own head, and then enclosed an unconscious Sylar with bricks in his basement. Now, Sylar is living his worst fear as he finds himself all alone in an abandoned New York City. And looks like the only one who can save him is Peter. Every Heroes fan knows that Peter and Sylar are two people you'd never expect to see working together for a common goal. After all, Sylar killed Peter's brother Nathan, and that alone should put an enormous chunk of beef between them. Tonight's episode, however, forces Peter to set aside his personal vendetta in order to save Emma, who is now at the carnival with Samuel. Meanwhile, Noah is still being held captive by Samuel and as Claire tries to rescue him, Samuel reveals her dad's secret past that might just bring her to Samuel's side. Lauren, on the other hand, makes a bold move to put a stop to Samuel. Source & Preview

Heroes: Sneak Peek of Episode 4.17 "The Art of Deception"

After paying Claire a visit, sharing that awkward kiss with her and deducing that he must rid himself of his powers in order to be human again, Sylar visits the home of Matt Parkman, whose unsuspecting wife welcomes him in, in the Heroes episode "The Art of Deception." Still afraid of being alone and not being able to connect with anyone, Sylar asks Matt to go inside his head again to purge Sylar of his powers. Just like Claire, Matt, understandably, is reluctant to help considering what happened the last time he went inside Sylar's head. Unfortunately, Matt has no choice but to follow the orders of Sylar, who is holding Matt's wife Janice hostage. Meanwhile, Peter warns Emma of Samuel's intentions after his grim vision of the future. Claire, on the other hand, goes back to the Carnival where she warns Lydia about her dad Noah, who is cooking up a plan to take down the Samuel with the help of Lauren and Suresh. Source Here

Heroes: Will Hiro and Charlie Meet Again?

As his life hung in the balance on last week's Heroes, Hiro was confronted by the important characters from his past in his subconscious. Well, most of those people. Missing in action, of course, was Charlie (Jayma Mays), his significant other who is lost in time. But, with three episodes left in the season, that doesn't mean a reunion for the pair is out of the cards yet. "Let's put it this way: He has to find Charlie and it will be resolved by the Winter Olympics," Masi Oka tells us. "I can't say what kind of reunion it will be, but there will be a resolution. Whether it's good or not, the audience will have to decide. But it won't just be talked about - like, 'Oh well, she's lost in time. Too bad!'" With Mays starring on Glee, getting her back has been tricky, but Oka says he likes the direction Hiro's arc has taken because of the schedule conflicts. "Everybody wants them back together, but I'm very happy with the stuff he got to do this season," he says. "I think having the brain tumor, dealing with that and Charlie were two great things that Hiro had in terms of a dramatic [story line]. It was very challenging. I would say this is my second favorite creative season for Hiro." Hiro's brain tumor story line and his quest to find Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) will also be tied up by the end of the season, which culminates in an epic showdown between the Heroes as Samuel (Robert Knepper) continues to divide the group. "Hiro will see Samuel again," Oka says. "He'll be a little bit involved with the carnival story line, but he's not too involved in the big showdown." The clash will close the Redemption volume, but will open a whole new set of questions, Oka says, thereby necessitating another season to answer them. While he acknowledges Heroes' ratings have dwindled considerably since its robust first season, Oka says the show deserves at least one more season - for the fans. "I haven't gotten any word on a renewal, but everyone agrees the show does deserve a proper ending, just because we want to pay homage to fans who have stuck with us from the beginning," he says. "Nothing is 100 percent guaranteed in television. Maybe they get amazing pilots. Hopefully it won't be like the X-Files where we need a movie to wrap things up. My hope is to have a finite end date, like Lost, or they give the writers the chance to wrap up everything and know they're going to be done." And so where does he ultimately see Hiro ending up? "I've always believed that if he becomes Future Hiro, there are no more stories to tell because it's hard to grow with that character," Oka says. "I think that's why the writers prolonged it as much as possible, but I think if we know there's an end in sight, I think it'd be fun to just take him over the edge and turn him into Future Hiro and end it that way. The best ending for him would be to go back in time and revisit his love for Charlie over and over again and live in that infinite loop." Source Here

Heroes Preview: Season 4, Episode 17 "The Art of Deception"

H.R.G. (Jack Coleman) attempts to gain the upper hand in getting rid of the carnival, but his daughter warns them of the impending attack and causes even more chaos in the process.

Heroes: Hayden Panettiere's Red Hair Creates Buzz

Though there are a lot more important things I'd rather focus on, it seems like Hayden Panettiere's new hair do is getting all the buzz and attention these days. Apparently, the 20-year-old Heroes actress, who plays Claire Bennet on the NBC drama, decided to go through a drastic makeover by coloring hair her red. And critics are having a field day over it! "Ewww," "Disgusting," and "Lindsay Lohan wannabe" are just some of the not-so-pleasant comments I've stumbled upon the internet brought about by Hayden Panettiere's red hair. On the other hand, there are also several Panettiere defenders out there who think her new red hair suits her. To Read More Click Here .

Heroes Cancellation Buzz: Viewers abandon Heroes in droves. Can it be saved? - Featured

Oh, Heroes , it's been nice to know you! Despite talk that NBC is considering bringing Heroes back for a fifth season, it's not looking good! Apparently few people wanted to see Hiro battle his brain tumor, Sylar kiss Claire or Samuel try to woo the woman of his past in Monday's episode, " Pass/Fail ," which hit a series low in the ratings. The show's ratings had been dropping gradually since the season premiered last September with about 6 million viewers, and there was a noticeable drop when new episodes began airing this year: under 5 million. But Monday's episode completely tanked and drew in fewer than 4 million viewers. That's a drop of about 2 million viewers since the season began, and 2 million more viewers than Heroes can afford to lose. Just over a week ago we reported that NBC executive Angela Bromstad said that NBC was considering keeping Heroes for another season and was expecting a pitch from creator Tim Kring about a fifth season before making any decisions. But the falling ratings call into question the show's chances for getting a pickup. Why exactly have a third of viewers abandoned Heroes this season? (Loss of interest? Sylar not being himself, literally? Killing off Nathan for real? Claire kissing a girl? Hiro's brain tumor? Or maybe the viewers were kidnapped by aliens?) And consider this: Heroes was a hit in its first season, averaging 14 million viewers. Now the series has an average viewership of 3.93 million. With just three episodes to go before Heroes' season finale, "Brave New Year," on Feb. 8, fans had better start rallying if they hope to see another season. Meanwhile, NBC's delightful Chuck is doing fairly well, averaging about 7 million viewers so far, and there's reason to be hopeful for the show's future. (Heroes airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.) Do you think Heroes can be saved? Should it be? Source: Viewers abandon Heroes in droves: Can it be saved?

Raise a Glass Award: Host Ricky Gervais' onstage drinking sets a boozy tone for the Golden Globes, and he only added to it with zingers like this introduction: "I like a drink as much as the next man," he says, "unless the next man is Mel Gibson." Cue a sheepish-looking Gibson. 8. Best Debut: On Life Unexpected, Cate and Baze, the high school sweethearts who have not spoken since doing the deed 15 years prior, reunite when Baze calls in to Cate's radio show to tell her, on air, that the daughter they gave up for adoption has come a-lookin'.
