Is This How Nathan Dies?

at . Comments

Granted, this headline is a bit misguided because Nathan Petrelli died at the conclusion of season three.

But blame NBC for the misleading storyline, as it hyped a "major Heroes death" for weeks, only to reveal that the victim in question has been technically dead for awhile.

Still, Monday's episode marks Nathan's final appearance on the show. Hopefully, the development will result in a solid installment that's viewed by more people than usual, such as former fans tuning in to say goodbye, as the series could use a major ratings boost.

It's currently the lowest-rated primetime drama on network television.

NBC has released a few photos from "The Fifth Stage," and they appear to depict Nathan's demise. Click on each one, going from left to right, to get a close look at what appears to be the character's death scene...

Don't Die!
Goodbye, Nathan

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.
