Maybe a better catch phrase for this season would have been, "End the season, save the show."
Let's hope that's the one prophecy that will be fulfilled before HEROES becomes NBC's LOST -- a once great show in first season, now lost in its own murky mythology.

I'm pretty sure adam will not ever be able to dig his way out. . . there is no where for the earth to go. He might be dug out at some point but being under 6 feet of earth is fairly permanent.

C+? its a little harsh don't you think? first its great the writers are killing off charecter people like. don't worry. there're 18 more heroes who could be equally hot just waiting for a script. things i loved. Hiro burying adam. thats can only lead to dark places for both hiro and adam. Elle doing a solid for the "good" side the kensei back story with its sad ending. Peter being a huge sucker and the talk with nathan afterward. things i liked/could of been better HRG getting shot/reanimated. i would of kept in dead or out of sight longer. maybe show him re-animated in the final shots of powerless Nathan getting shot Bobby Kennedy style...very lame. but then again so was the idea to take our powers public. things i hated. maya and her stupid brother. lame. i want those minutes wasted watching this show back. The lame exit of D.L. he should have died in the line of duty.

The writers have clearly lost their mind if they decide to kill Nathan and keep Maya around. Their decision making goes from bad to worse with each episode. Why is anyone still watching this drivel?

I'm pretty pissed that Niki was 'killed', but I have a feeling she'll come back.

Sylar doesn't 'have' that power yet, it was just a blood transfusion - I mean, do HRG or Maya have it aswell? No. I agree with you about the rest though. Doubt they'll leave Niki/Jessica dead, Ali Larter is just too hot to kill off like that - and besides she is the only 'good' character who is a badass
