It's really hilarious how fast people have turned on the show. It's faster that Lost.
They turned on the show in the S1 finale! And then S2 was bitch bitch bitch...
I really think we'll learn all of the Company/Pinehearst bits and pieces in the Five Years Gone/Four Months Ago of this volume. It must be due fairly soon, episode 9 at the latest I'd say.
According to this spoilery article in EW, which appears to confirm the identity of Sylar's baby-mommy we'll see it Nov 10.

I just had an nasty thought - can Arthur choose which powers to absorb and leave some behind? He seems like he's had decades to refine his power so this is plausible. That means he would not have absorbed Sylar's seeing ability at all, leaving it behind in Peter, who is otherwise powerless. How evil would that be?

What pissed me off about West was that he got ALL the flying scenes in season 2 while Nathan didn't do anything with his powers.
Yes he did...remember when he had to carry Parkman?

I thought everyone agreed never to speak of that again.

Arthur would've been a better choice for the one Molly feared than Maury, especially considering how easy it was for Matt to dispatch Maury the first time around.
i was just thinking that myself - maybe they can retrofit that somehow...

If Maury has been doing all of Arthur's bidding for a while now, then he would have been the one to show up to Molly as the "bad guy". Arthur was just lying in bed, doing nothing but thinking. Maury was doing all the bad stuff.

I can't even imagine what a cast this massive must be costing. Sure they don't use all the actors all the time, but just having them available is going to cost something vs cutting some loose and not hiring more!!!!
The main cast hasn't grown that much. There were 12 main cast members in season one. DL, Simone, and Isaac were killed off.

For season 2.
Sylar, Ando, Monica, Maya, Elle, Adam were added to the main cast.

For season 3.
Elle, Monica, Adam, Micah left. Angela was added to the main cast. Which makes 12. The size of the main cast is actually the same as season one.

Heores just seems to have such a large cast since they have so many reoccuring characters. You have to remember that with such a large main cast the main actors make much less compared to other shows with the same budget but smaller cast. For example each of the main Desperate Housewives actresses make many times more then any of the main actors on LOST.

And bringing in new actors can be a strategy to keep the existing cast from getting swelled heads, thinking they are indispensible and demanding raises. Unfortunately for Kring, I think he does have some indispensible actors, for which he should be grateful because they are the ones keeping the ratings' head above water regardless of how nonsensical or convoluted the writing may get.

I'm just not sure why they can't seem to part ways with Ali Larter - all the characters she plays are so pointless. I guess she's just there to please the blonde-o-philes.

She's the resident hotty I guess. Claire is too young and the likes of Maya and Elle are short-timers.

They'd do a lot better if they'd quit firing Homer Simpson's makeup shotgun at her now she's Tracy and not Nikki.

I have noticed, can't think why, that Maya's clothes seemed to be getting skimpier with every appearance.

Have you seen the kind of costumes superheroines wear in the comics? Revealing clothes for the females is just part of the comics cliche not to mention it's good for ratings.

Yeah, but this is Heroes. Every instance of female skimpy clothedness has to be paid for with twenty minutes of some dude with his shirt off.

I dont know that has this been thought about yet.. But does anyone think that Arthurs power is basically just more advanced version of Peters power?

Just like Matt's dad had more advanced power than Matt had. Matt could only read minds, his dad could also push thoughts into other peoples minds. So Peter can just copy powers, but Arthur can also cut powers from a person.

I always do!

If I were a guy, to tell ya the truth, my hotty fixation would be Elle. It's not Claire's literal age but the fact that she seems like such a stupid, vapid little barbie doll that turns me off. I don't like Ali Larter's face, there's something rodent-like about it. Maya has the same problem as Claire x100. Claire's mom Meredith is ironically hotter than her dimwit spawn. Too bad they killed Simone, she was a genuine hotty, ditto for Candice. They're good at keeping hot guys around, terrible with the ladies.

Works for me!

Just like Matt's dad had more advanced power than Matt had.
Hmm, interesting. I also wonder if Arthur can place powers back into a person or into different people. He already seems like the Monarch of the Metahumans - like a ruler, he can dispense or withdraw the goodies at will. It doesn't seem very useful to the plot to have him simply keeping all Peter's powers. I can't see him sullying his hands by actually fighting. But he could distribute the powers to his goon squad as he sees fit. Very kingly.
