Well, I just saw the conclusion of Heroes’ third season and *significant spoilers starting* that was some bullshit they pulled off.
Ooooh, they actually killed Peter Petrelli. Nice. Took the show three attempts to pull it off, but at least they went through with it. It was a wicked slice to the throat, too. Blood gushing was a nice detail.
Oh, wait, this is Heroes so obviously this would be too easy. Oh no, we can’t just leave him dead. Instead, let’s transfer his memories over to Sylar (or something like that) and have Sylar permanently stay as Nathan and let’s all pretend Nathan never really died! My God, is Angela, and ipso facto the writers of Heroes, really this desperate to keep Nathan around? It completely ruins the drama when a show blatantly tells you that dead does not mean dead. Ali Larter coming back from exploding as ice was another example.
Here I thought her powers was to freeze things and NOT ACTUALLY BE WATER herself. Please, stop introducing wild new powers for the characters. This just shows weak writing, where instead of creatively writing themselves out of a tough situation, they just pile on one ludicrous notion or plot twist on top of another.
Heroes, you’ve sucked a great deal during these last two years. I guess it wasn’t surprising you would end the season on your lowest note yet.
