Storyline

In the season finale, Ando fears his friend is powerless to keep him alive, so he steals Hiro's sword and goes after Sylar, himself. Nathan comes between Peter and Claire. Jessica tries to find her son after Lindeman and DL get killed and finds Nikki occupying the same space as herself. Mohindar does everything in his power to keep Molly alive, even though Noah Bennett wants her dead, thinking she's a missing link. And it all sets the stage for the showdown between Sylar and Peter.

Goofs

After Nathan flies a nuclear charged Peter into the air he explodes, yet the lights and the power in New York City remain undisrupted. All of the power should have gone out due to the Compton effect. When a nuclear explosion occurs in the atmosphere, it creates an E.M.M.A. pulse; a photon wave of up to 50 Billion Megawatts. (Such a feat was displayed in an earlier episode when Ted Sprague shorted out the power in the Primatech Paper building in order to escape.) See more »

an underwhelming end to a great season
22 May 2007 | by jacksonwmaSee all my reviews

this season started out so well. it produced some of the best sci-fi /superhero story lines and characters i have seen in my 45 years of TV shows i can remember(i am 50).the show was way too short. the fight between sylar,peter and hiro was almost laughable.these are super-powered beings.there should have been more carnage,chaos and drama.Tim kring brags that he has never read a comic-book.maybe he should. NBC should have shelled-out some major bucks for this. this is their only real hit. they should have gone all-out to make this one for the record books.maybe Alan Moore's miracle man finale of Olympus(issue#15) should be consulted as a reference.if Mr. kring is going to mine a genre,even one he does not respect,he should do some research.
