‘Heroes’ to Kill Characters in 2009
With Heroes building up to a climax for “Villains”, details are starting to slip out about volume four, kicking off in January. E!’s Krstin de los Santos says there will be some house cleaning coming up with characters being killed off in a dramatic fashion.
“I’m told Hunter (Zeljko Ivanek) captures many of our favorite Heroes and loads them onto a transport plane. (Think prisoners heading to Guantánamo Bay.) When the plane goes down, ‘You don’t know who survives,’ says [Greg Grunberg]. When asked if Angela Petrelli would be joining their nondirty ‘mile-high club,’ Cristine Rose tells me, ‘I’m getting old, I don’t see myself parachuting.’ So could that be how some of our Heroes survive? More importantly, did the plane go down because Desmond forgot to key in the numbers in the Hatch?”
One of the romances will be ending as one of the partners also dies with suspicion aimed at Grunberg’s likeable Matt Parkman, who recently got involved with the charming Daphne, the speedster.
The series will take a long break with the fourth volume airing its first episode Monday, February 2 during the next Sweeps period.
