The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    that doesnt make sense, cause the whole part of teh future episode is when sylar HAS Claires powers, then future hiro goes back and tries to stop it, but maybe its just another hole in the story.

    i think i figured out why linderman wants micah, at first i think he was going to use him to detonate a nucular bomb in case one of the guys didnt explode, but now i think he is goign to use micah to rig the election since he is running behind in the polls.

    the future timeline was based on everything that happened up until the point that Hiro and Ando transported in the future..so how would Sylar have Claires abilities? Nobody even knew she was alive (because she was originally dead)..the timeline was altered.

    I think the future might be altered again though...because in the future episode Sylar was upset with Peter because he (Sylar) had been blamed for being the bomb, when it was really Peter...but now, after killing his mom, he seems to think it's a good idea

    and I'm pretty sure Micah is there to rig the election...since Nathan was down in the polls, but we know he wins

    I still think Micah is there to do something with the explosion - I think if you look closely in the trailer for next week, you'll see Micah leaning out over the rooftop of the building, stretching his hand out (presumably using his power on something?) for a fraction of a second. Whatever it is, it's probably not poll-related.

    I'm going to say that Ms. Petrelli is the one who fixes the election. She's got a crafty streak, that one...

    Well let's think about this logically. Obviously Heroes will be around for another season. Petrelli HAS to win the elections otherwise what the hell do they do with his character?

    My question is whether the bomb will go off or be stopped. On one hand we like protagonists to win but on the other hand it would be a lot more interesting if it went off and plus what the hell do you do if the bomb doesn't go off? What will the next season be about? Another apocalyptic event? Good way to lose viewership.

    I'm sure they have something good in the works, since the show was signed on to another season after the second aired episode.

    Hiro needs to man it up a bit more, though. After seeing Future Hiro as the badass that he is, present-Hiro seems more wimpy. C'mon Hiro use your sword and make a Sylar-kebab.

    As someone previously mentioned, I like how Ando and Mohinder, powerless as they are, exist among these superguys and remain fearless and true to their ideals.

    Doesn't Sylar kill Nathan? That's why he can fly in the future. He also killed that shape shifter chick, and Claire. Sylar is the President remember.

    Did you not realize that that episode was about a hypothetical future? Do you really think the show will end up like that, with everyone dead?

    I've got a feeling that a significant number of heroes are going to die after the final episode.

    It was not hypothetical. It was the future as it would be when Hiro left the present IF nothing more was changed.

    Now he has returned and will seek to change things.

    I wouldn't say a significant number...but some:

    In a recent interview with E! Online Tim Kring said: "There are plans to add one new, one big character next season." Tim also said that those Heroes who remain are likely to stick around, 'cause he's changed his MO "I thought Heroes was going to have an ever-shifting cast," he says, "but the cast hit in such big ways that now the challenge is to figure out how to use them all and still fold in a couple of new people, because I still think that the origin stories are the most fascinating, in some ways."

    remember on that timeline Hiro states he stabes Sylar but he regenerates, so he goes back in that timeline and tries to change it.
    to me that says he has to have claires powers on that timeline.

    You really weren't paying attention. It wasn't sylar that he stabs. It was the exploding peter patrelli wuss machine. Sylar becomes the scapegoat, then an anti mutant campaign takes hold, and finally sylar takes shapeshifter chick's power and then kills nathan and assumes his role as president.

    No it was Sylar that he stabbed. Then Sylar regenerated. Then the bomb went off. Then Hiro figured out what to change and went back in time. Obviously something happened that Sylar still lived, but Hiro doesn't know what it was because he changed the past.

    Hiro is still himself, future Hiro is the only one in the future with memories of the timeline before he changed it. However, since he changed it, he doesn't know what happened in this new timeline.

    but peter says it as him and that hiro tried to stop him but he regenerated. Sylar doesn't have that power yet.

    But Linderman has healing power and wants the bomb to go off.

    They interviewed the entire cast on NBC news this morning, and Parkman said that the last 3 minutes of the episode tonight is actually the first 3 minutes of next season.
