"It will be really clear who these villains are," said Arkush. "These are not necessarily characters you've met already. Obviously, there's going to be a lot of Sylar."

Will there be a mix of heroes and villains, though?

"One of the things that strikes me as so interesting about the [episode "Company Man"] was when H.R.G. says, 'I'm very comfortable in the morally grey area,'" says Arkush. "Think about that. Just like when Nathan and Linderman were going to destroy New York for reasons they thought were correct. And who on the show seems to be able to make very hard decisions and has grown as a character? One of those people is Angela (Petrelli)."

Overall, Arkush promises, "one of the things that we're going to explore is the very nature of these powers — where they come from, who has them, what the different aspects are of how they each got their powers and how it affects them.

That's going to be a major storyline this year — the actual genetic essence of the power."

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.
