Heroes: Season 3 Rumor Roundup (Part 2)

As Heroes Season 3 inches closer to its September premier the rumors continue to flow, and if you’ve read Part 1 of the Heroes Season 3 Rumor Round Roundup than you know that there are already a ton of rumors floating around. Here are the latest:

E! recently reported that in the future “Sylar has a four-year-old named Noah (which has to be in memory or honor of our Noah Bennet, aka H.R.G.), and according to Zachary Quinto, Sylar’s baby mama is “silver-tongued and alive. I don’t know what else to say. I can’t give that away—it’s too good.”

Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) will be back despite being shot (presumedly) to death in the finale of Heroes Season 2. He discusses his role in Season 3 here:

And here’s Nathan’s promo poster:

In a recent interview with Pop Wrap (NY Post), Dana Davis reveals that Monica’s storyline “storyline wraps up fairly quickly” in Season 3. Thank goodness because I found Monica’s character and mimic abilities to be somewhat annoying. Anyhow, she goes on to explain why the character is being cut: “Dana: “Heroes” didn’t get the same critical or fan acclaim in season two, so I think the creators felt a lot of pressure because the ratings dropped and it wasn’t nominated for any Emmys. And with the strike, I feel like the writers had a lot of time to sit around and think. They wanted to come back really strong and go back to what the show was in season one – less drama, more action. And they took it in a different direction that didn’t really include Monica.”

Finally, NBC just released the official description for the two-hour season premier episode. Some key points:

  1. A key villain from the past appears
  2. Episode begins moments after Nathan is assasinated
  3. Sylar visits Claire
  4. Hiro and Ando need to safeguard a family secret
  5. Daphne is introduced
  6. Suresh makes a breakthrough
  7. Tracy Strauss is introduced
  8. Sylar attacks the company and battles Elle, in the meantime, a dozen Level 5 criminals escape
  9. Claire finds out something new about her powers  

UPDATE: I just stumbled across the first 15 minutes of episode 1 of season 3! It’s a video someone took at Comic Con 2008. Check it out here:

    I liked Monica! And I wish they gave her a chance. Killing off all the black people…Whats up with that!

  2. says

    I didn’t really care for Monica. If I had her powers I’d be a billionaire by now. She needed to capitalize on it.

    You know who they should kill off, Mohinder. They should kill him off because he is a nag.

  3. joelsabugo says

    Minority Genocide! How dare you kill off Mohinder! Might as well take down Micah and Maya as well. Then Hiro and Ando!!

  4. says

    Well, I totally agree with getting rid of Maya…they should get rid of her and her eyes. They can save the little kid. And in no way should they get rid of Hiro (though Ando is disposable).
