Look we get it. HEROES has become the television equivalent of that really bad relationship. The one where you’re constantly giving a second, third or heck, even fourth chance to that special someone in the hopes of re-capturing the magic of those unforgettable first few months.
Which is why this TV Addict has enlisted a few genuine ‘heroes’ to lend a hand with tonight’s big decision. Do you give what executive producer Bryan Fuller promises will be “the best finale the show has ever had” one last chance? We are, and here’s why.
Not only did the allusive Cristine Rose (Angela Petrelli) offer up three tantalizing word (“Time will tell!”) when we asked her to tease tonight’s finale at last weekend’s HEROES FOR AUTISM event. She confirmed an actual heroes death, promising that, “one of the main characters that’s been with us from the very beginning is really dead and nobody believes that but it’s absolutely true.”
Next up, is the man who brought horn-rimmed glasses back, Jack Coleman (HRG) who teased that tonight’s finale, “unravels in a dramatic way that springs us into a very cool fourth season.”
And finally, comes the surprisingly candid Milo Ventimigliia who had this to say when asked by this TV Addict why fans should give the show one last shot. “I think it’s a bummer that they [the fans] left. I understand they can get frustrated with the show, we [the actors] get frustrated with the show at times. But we stick with it and we ask that they stick with it because there are a lot of episodes between number one and the series finale and I think that when you look back with all of them compiled together everyone will realize and understand that the growth of the show, the maturation of the show came from every single episode. Some are going to be better than others, but everyone of them is a building block.”
