Jared over at JustJared.com has come up with a few interesting details about the upcoming January 22nd return episode of NBC’s Heroes, titled “Godsend.”
According to Jared, the return episode of Heroes will see Masi Oka aka Hiro Nakamura, set out in search of a “sacred object” – his samurai sword. As if Hiro finally going after his samurai sword isn’t cool enough, we’ll be meeting a new character too! Claude, played by Christopher Eccleston of Dr. Who fame plays an invisible man. Tim Kring, the man behind NBC’s Heroes sensation, had the following to say about the new Claude character: â€œHeâ€™s been living with his invisibility for many years and has come to grips with it, so heâ€™ll give us a different view into this hero world. Heâ€™s big, imposing and charismatic, and will become a mentor to Peter â€” albeit a tough, reluctant and stern one. Heâ€™ll help Peter learn to use and control his powers.â€ Sweeeet!
And the goodness doesn’t stop there my friends! If you read the Heroes Graphic Novel on the NBC website, then you know doubt have realized we may be in store for yet another new character! Hana, who – rumor has it – will be played by Jessalyn Gilsig of Nip/Tuck, may be stepping up to take the place of Eve, who recently splattered her own brains on the wall in an effort to prevent Sylar from taking her powers. Apparently she seems to fall into Eve’s roll willingly, as well, so she wasn’t forced into being a henchmen by Claire’s father, the evil Dr. guy. Sadly, though, her power will pale in comparison to Eve’s. Hana will allegedly possess the power to act like a human computer network, with the ability to send text messages and emails with mind power, along with being able to listen in on any phone conversation at her will. I have to say, Eve’s mind control was a way cooler power, but Hana could certainly prove useful.
I’m getting more and more excited with every story and rumor I read. The January 22nd return of NBC’s hit TV series Heroes is going to be fantastic, and the “Godsend” title return episode will no doubt prove to be aptly named after a nearly 2-months hiatus.
