I have to admit that I was a little dissapointed when I first saw the season finale. I felt that it did not have the strength that the “future” episode did. However, I started to realize that if we wanted another season of heroes it had to end this way.
Like a good wine this one is getting better as time passes. The more I think about it, the more I like the way they left things. We have 4 of our heroes potentially not coming back. While I hope they all stay in the series there is a possibility that they might not.
Also we see Simone again, and her Grandfather being one of the group of people that Linderman and Peter’s Mom is a part of does make it very possible that she is still alive. We never knew if she had a power of not, but she very well could have being related to someone with power, potentially.
A big question for me is what are some of the powers of the older crowd. We knew that linderman was a regenerator and I can almost bet that he is Peter and Nathan’s real Dad. What about Peter’s Mom… do powers get “bigger” with every generation or are they simply genes that are passed on?
Hiro going back in time also opens up a lot of possibilities. Will he become a Samurai and then come back badass? Have we had Heroes all through history? Was Hercules one? My mind just keeps going on with possiblities.
The more I think back to the finale the more I like it. I think it was a good way to end the season… not a total cliffhanger, but surely full of possible storylines for next season. Sylar is for sure the ultimate Lex Luthor.
