With the WGA Strike still in effect, the second season of "Heroes" comes to a premature ending this coming Monday, finishing the first "pod" of stories. While it means no new episodes of the series for quite some time, that doesn't mean the show is slowing down at all. In recent weeks the "Heroes" story has truly been ramping up, answering questions like what happened in those missing four months and identified the killer of the old Company founders. With next Monday's finale, titled "Powerless," it all comes to a head as good and evil face off.
First up, here's the description of the next episode from NBC:
IT'S HERO VS. HERO AS THE SERIES' "VOLUME II: GENERATIONS" COMES TO AN EXPLOSIVE, BLOODY FINISH -- Deep below Primatech Paper in Odessa, TX, Peter's (Milo Ventimiglia) reunion with Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) turns violent when the brothers, Matt (Greg Grunberg) and Hiro (Masi Oka) all clash thanks to Adam (David Anders) and his pursuit of the deadly Shanti Virus. After watching his heroic cousin captured by a street gang, Micah (Noah Gray-Cabey) turns to the one person who can help him save Monica (Dana Davis) -- his mom (Ali Larter). Meanwhile, Maya (Dania Ramirez) tragically learns how much of a monster Sylar (Zachary Quinto) really is during his kidnapping of Molly (Adair Tishler) and Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy).
