Both Greg Grunberg and Cristine Rose have promised solid, enthralling season four storylines on Heroes.
But the latest spoiler column by an impartial source, Michael Ausiello, sheds light on a couple of planned plots that seem more comical than interesting.
First, the Entertainment Weekly writer confirms that Claire really will experiment with lesbianism with her new roommate, played by Rachel Melvin. Does that sound hot? Yes. Does it also sound like a desperate ratings ploy? Yes.
Meanwhile, Heroes producers are casting an 11-year-old version of Nathan. Why? Adrian Pasdar can explain:
"I absorb a memory from an article of clothing that sends me back in time to when I was 11. Something happened to young Nathan, but old Nathan doesn't remember it. How can that be? It has to do with a character we have met before."
Hey, at least the show has listened to viewer complaints about Hiro too often traveling back in time. Now, it's just using Nathan in his place instead!
