Japanese actress Eriko Tamura (pictured) - who played the 16th-century love interest of Hiro at the outset of Heroes last season - has admitted that her character will play a role in season three.
Please, television gods, tell us this doesn't mean Hiro goes back to feudal Japan again.
Tamura said that her character, Taeko, was supposed to be transported to the present in episodes that were scripted, but not finished before the writers' strike commenced last fall.
"I am going to be in the present, yes," Tamura assured viewers in an interview. "I actually had a few episodes of the script then. Suddenly, the strike happened, so we had to stop the shooting."
Do you wanna see Hiro continue his love story in the present? Let us know.
