News, Notes on Heroes: Volume 2 Changes

Consider these the opposite of Heroes spoilers.

While creator Tim Kring has outright apologized for a few mistakes the show made in season two, he's also revealed at times the direction of certain characters/stories that never made it on screen.

Here are a few of the changes that were made to the Heroes' chapter "Generations:"

- Kristen Bell was originally suppose to be in eight episodes... and then killed off. But fan support for the actress has made her into a long-term player on the show.

- Elle was setup as a Bob's step daughter (and probably still is), but she was also planned to be the daughter of Meredith. This, of course, would have made her Claire's sister.

- Stephen Tobolowsky (Bob) was meant to be far more sinister than they've made him. Looking back at his initial appearances on the show, you can tell his evil side has been toned down a bit. It appears as though Kring and company are now molding him more along the morally grey lines of HRG.

What do you think of these changes? Would you have preferred to have seen any remain as they were originally proposed?

Mohinder Suresh: Evolution is an imperfect, and often violent process. Morality loses it's meaning. The question of good and evil, reduced to one simple choice: Survive? Or perish?

Claire: My dad lied to me about my entire life; my biological parents, my ability, you can’t just hide things like that! There’s got to be something on there.
Zack: If your dad’s the guy you’re describing I don’t think he’s gonna keep his secrets on the family computer.
