Turning Good?
TV Guide caught up with Heroes director Tim Kring and asked him for thoughts on the winter finale to the chapter entitled "Generations."

Here are highlights of what Kring had to say:

On Elle clearly sparking when Mohinder called her a hero: "Kristen Bell gave us the perfect reaction in that scene. For a moment there, Elle sees she's been given an opportunity to use her powers in a good way. And she absolutely likes the sound of that word ‘hero.'"

On the next chapter's villains: "We've introduced a cadre of them over the course of the show and we're going to see them rise up. Just as the heroes have found each other to save the world, the villains will do the same with the opposite intent... The Company has catalogued many of these people over the years. There may be more of them down in that basement than we have alluded to so far."

On the one upside to the writer's stirke: "Sylar getting his power back does not bode well for our heroes. Originally, Zachary Quinto was not going to be available for much of Volume 3 because of his commitment to the new Star Trek film. Now, with the strike dragging on, he'll likely be done playing young Spock by the time Heroes returns to production."

Mohinder: (voiceover) There are many ways to define our fragile existence; many ways to give it meaning. But it is our memories that shape its purpose and give it context. The private assortment of images: fears, loves, regrets… for it’s the cruel irony of life that we are destined to hold the dark with the light, the good with the evil, success with disappointment… this is what separates us, what makes us human. And in the end, we must fight to hold on to.
