Excellent ending to an amazing season. Well done. I had told friends I was going to be disappointed if there wasn’t going to be a world-class Sylar/Peter superpowered smackdown, but after watching the finale last night I’m actually glad they didn’t go that direction. “Heroes” works because it’s a show that borrows from the comic book medium while not being a comic book if that makes any sense. It’s a show about relationships and characters, and to end a show like that with a f/x-heavy battle royale in downtown Manhattan sort of goes against the whole point.
Sylar’s still alive – next season’s Big Bad drug him into the sewers. But he has lost all his powers he gained during the series – he’s back where he began.
Hiro will meet Kensei and discover that his hero isn’t a good guy after all.
Parkman? He dead.
