Episode 1.20: String Theory
Airdate: April 30, 2007
Thrown five years in the future, Hiro and Ando discover that people with extraordinary abilities are not only widely known about — after the destruction of New York City and the deaths of millions — but are being registered, imprisoned, hunted and even killed as “terrorists.” As the President takes his first step towards a “final solution,” the pair get swept up in what could be the Heroes final battle and encounter a range of new and darkly familiar faces. If they survive the experience, can they still get back to the present and save the world?
All the “heroes” die in episode 20 in what could possibly happen five years in the future.
“The battle for control between Niki and Jessica leads to a merging of the two,” Ali Larter says. “And we have an episode coming up that’s set in the future. There is definitely a winner then.”
Greg Grunberg reveals: “We’re shooting an episode we’re about to shoot, where it’s five years in the future, and it’s not the Matt Parkman that anyone is used to seeing. My character is in a place that is really dark, and I’m not going to play it like this menacing, evil guy. I’m just going to play it as normal as possible. That, to me, is the way to make the most impact. Let the actions speak louder than the words.”
Episode 1.20 features Andy, a handsome and big hearted Texan. There will also be an event at an upscale gentleman’s club.
