Yeah, this season turned out to be pretty darn good. Nothing was wasted - everything we saw built up to the climatic finale. Everything and everybody served a role...every single nauseating Claire/Noah bonding moment was important in creating an impactful falling out and even stronger reconciliation. Nicely done.

The end of the season also serves as a natural end to the series, if that ends up being the fate. The numbers have been exceptionally poor, but why do I have the feeling it's coming back?

The final battle between Peter and Samuel was a little bit of awesome. Robert Knepper carried the season, much like he carried a lot of Prison Break, and the fact that Samuel is still alive can mean only good things for the future, if the show comes back. However, Sylar the emo-pansy can mean only bad things for the future. And can someone please tell me why Doyle got to survive?

I was disappointed that Jayma Mays didn't/couldn't return for a cameo, but the woman that played older-Charlie was just spot on.

I'd like to also give a shout out to Hiro's "trial" from a couple of weeks ago. Totally awesome.

So, how does the compass work?

If this turns out to be the series finale then I am ok with it. Claire continues to be the most terribly written character on the show if not all of TV. HRG will be proven or would have been proven right about the Heroes coming out. People will be interested and then hang them out to dry. I am also not sure how they covered up Peter exploding over NYC in Season One, but whatever.

I didn't like the resolution to the Charlie/Hiro storyline. They had a nice moment at the end, but they are the only real love story on the show. They shouldn't have pulled a Whedon on it. They should have tricked Hiro into thinking she was stuck in time, but Samuel had her hidden in the Carnival all the time. Samuel/Peter was what I was hoping for along with the dialogue. Doyle gets to live, because Sylar is turning face which is kinda stupid. He should have died at the end of Volume 4. They also needed to explain that Matt was controlling Multiple Man, because him outing himself as a killer made no sense. The last scene was a nice send off if it doesn't get picked up. I just don't see another season of Heroes where Sylar is good and the Heroes are a media circus would attract new viewers. Maybe an villain like the X-Men's Apocalypse or DC's Darkseid would be fun. Samuel did a bang up job this season. All in all a good solid season even if no one watched.

I like the show but wish they would advance some characters, especially Hiro, who in the first season, was foreshadowed to become a Samurai. If they took a risk and did some of the stuff they teased it would be a better show. For example, Claire having feelings for her roommate. It's too muddled right now has a lot of plot holes.
