#2-Hiro Saves the Day…Again

September 21, 2008 at 8:55 pm (Television)

The setting is Kirby Plaza on the night of November 4th, 2006. The madman known as Sylar believes that he is the explosion set to kill millions, and so does Peter Petrelli. Both Issac Mendez and Ted Sprague have lost their lives, Nathan and his family are planning to leave the city, Noah, Matt, and Mohinder are working together to get out and take out part of the company, Niki and DL are dealing with a gunshot wound, and Peter and Sylar are facing off. I could just say that this entire episode is epic, and that is true. Through the whole episode we see all the characters slowly come together to that one place to try to stop the devastation, and the viewer begins to wonder, “How’s it going to play out?” Will it happen? If not, how are they going to stop it? Who will be the bomb, and who’s going to save the day? The answer to the 2nd question is Hiro Nakamura. We see nearly all the characters converging upon New York, and Hiro is still in Japan, realizing his destiny. He saves Ando from Sylar’s clutches about 20 minutes into the episode, and from then on out kinda doesn’t do anything. That is, until the last minutes of the finale, when Peter is about to go kaboom. Sylar laughs over Peter, and tells him of his own victory, how he’s the hero. Every Heroes nerd’s lower lip was trembling in nerd-overload as Hiro appears out of nowhere, calls Sylar’s name, runs, and stabs Sylar right through the chest. He shouts a resounding and oh-too-familiar-yet-so-satisfying-Yatta, jerks out the sword and spins it in Link style as Sylar falls the ground. All of his villains flash through his eyes, and he falls. It was oh-so-satisfying and oh-so-shocking. That, and Peter and Nathan had a brother hug and flew off into the atmosphere to stop the bomb.
