Episode 1.18: Parasite
Airdate: March 5, 2007
A hero is set to die in this episode. Some sources say it will be Simone, who got shot a couple weeks ago, while others say she won’t die. We know for sure that Claire isn’t the one dying either. We do now that it’s probably a person who you probably would think would never die because of his or her special role on the series. But what if there were someone who could instantly absorb that person’s special role?
More information on who dies. Apparently it’s female. Although, I’m also told that one of the following people will die: Mohinder, Peter, Simone, H.R.G., Niki/Jessica, Micah, or Claire. Since we know Claire is out that would seem to point to Simone, although some disagree with that statement. My thoughts are that it could be one of Niki’s personalities. Either Jessica or Niki.
A new hero will make her debut. Her name will be Candice Wilmer, and will be played by Missy Peregrym from the movie Stick It. Candice is a female temptress who, according to an earlier casting breakdown, “wields a tremendous amount of sex appeal” and is willing to “get her hands dirty” for her employer.”
With the election and NYC’s destruction looming, Nathan has a disturbing face-to-face meeting with the shadowy Linderman. Nathan’s destiny will become very clear at the end of this episode.
Hiro’s attempt to steal the sword steers him into a grim new direction.
Suresh makes a breakthrough on “the list” — at great cost. Suresh and Sylar are still working together in this episode.
D.L. begins to suspect all is not well at home.
Isaac paints his most terrible painting yet.
H.R.G.’s past catches up to him as Matt and Ted Sprague come to Texas looking for answers, and take him, his wife, his son and Claire hostage.
