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:
