Heroes Season Three Premiere Recap: Who's Your Mommy?

at . Comments

Heroes premiered last night with two hours worth of twists, turns and new powers that almost made us forget the horrendous second season ever existed.

And that's quite an accomplishment.

The evening began with a look four years into the future, as Claire aimed a gun at Peter. She always loved him, the newly brunette bad ass said, just as she pulled the trigger... but Peter stopped time, grabbed the weapon and returned to the present day. His mission there?

To kill Nathan.

Indeed, we got an answer to last season's cliffhanger, along with a newly set up story line (Future Peter has gone back in time in order to change a future in which Heroes are hunted down by the government) within the show's first two minutes. Creator Tim Kring wasn't joking about this chapter being fast-paced.

Heroes Season Premiere Surprise

The two-hour Heroes premiere culiminated in this shocking scene, as Angela Petrelli let Sylar in on a little secret.

Also going down on Heroes last night? Hiro got a new mission and new nemesis; Parkman met a bushman in Africa; and Mohinder did his best Spider-Man impression. Keep reading about the third season premiere now...

Heroes Quotes

We are bad asses now!


Hiro: Every ten year old wishes he had super powers. And I got them. Me of all people. Last in my class. Last on the sports field. I’m not a loser anymore.
Ando: Tell me one useful thing you could do with this power. Can you make money?
Hiro: A super hero doesn’t use his power for personal gain.
Ando: Then what good is it? Can you teleport yourself into the women’s bathroom? Now, there’s something useful. You won’t learn your "purpose" in there, but you might learn something about life.
