Heroes Postmortem: What's Next for Sylar?

Zachary Quinto, Heroes

Well, folks, Heroes has done it again. Nathan Petrelli may have expired with a glorious, gurgling coda, but his character lives on — thanks to Matt Parkman — reincarnated inside a mind-wiped version of arch-villain Sylar. While the closing moments of the Season 3 finale suggest that Sylar's presence still lives on in "Nathan," have we seen the last of the furry-browed Sylar we've always known?

"Zach's not done," Adrian Pasdar tells "There's Nathan, there's Sylar, and there's the point of view that you have to factor in. If I look up into the mirror, who would I see?"

Naturally, the twist sets up an epic internal battle between Nathan and Sylar in Season 4... read more

Leno Turns Illness into Comedy on First Night Back

Jay Leno

Jay Leno's illness was serious enough to cancel two shows last week, but the late-night host made light of it during his monologue when he returned to the air Monday night.

Ever topical, Leno linked his illness to the swine flu. "What happened was — and I think was a mistake — I ate a raw pig a friend brought back from Mexico. ... It was delicious," Leno joked.

He went on to explain that he actually drove to his Burbank studio in his vintage Model T car on a cold morning last Thursday and didn't wear a jacket. "You know, I had this 103 degree fever. I was freezing and I got chills, and here at NBC we have an 'ODN,' overly dramatic nurse," Leno said.

He then ... read more

Heroes Episode Recap: "An Invisible Thread"

Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia, Heroes

As the "Fugitives" volume ends, Heroes finds its super-powered protagonists doing everything they can — and often shouldn't — do to stop one evil or another. Nathan goes toe-to-toe with Sylar to keep him from carrying out a plan to impersonate the president using his shape-shifting ability. Hiro insists on stopping time to infiltrate and shut down Building 26, even though his health is greatly compromised by doing so. Parkman, Angela and HRG do the unthinkable all in the name of their perceived greater good. Throw in a death (sort of), a return, Mohinder flailing uselessly and a huge bonfire, and you have one jam-packed finale. Let's get to it.

Heroes Finale Preview: Who Will Win the Nathan-Sylar Face-Off?

Adrian Pasdar, Heroes

As NBC's Heroes closes the book on its third season and the "Fugitives" volume (Monday at 9 pm/ET), Sen. Nathan Petrelli is on a mission to atone for what he's done: namely, making his friends fugitives in the first place. There's just one problem — the nearly invincible and now shape-shifting-enabled Sylar is standing in his way.

To make matters worse, Sylar is using his ability to live inside the skin of Nathan — all part of an effort to get close to the president and eventually impersonate him as well. But Pasdar said Nathan is fighting against himself just as much as he is Sylar

"In the last four episodes, [Nathan's] been realizing what he's done, what the overreaching ramifications his actions may have," Adrian Pasdar tells "There's been a quiet backing up into what the whole thing is really about, and a getting closer to seeing a redeeming light.

"Going into that last episode," Pasdar continues... read more
