Heroes Spoilers: "Godsend"

Finally the waiting is over for Heroes spoilers fans. The next episode is a new one, and it is right around the corner.

The title of the Heroes episode is "Godsend", and this one is Episode 12 of Season 1, undoubtedly the first of many. That's not a spoiler :)

A lot of rumors have been floated, cranking up the Heroes hype. Expect record-breaking ratings when the episode airs first on January 22, 2007. The only thing that could stop it is going heads-up against Jack Bauer. We love Jack, but the good money bets that Jack needs to find a new time slot. He may be helped by shape-shifters to ratings safety ... uh I mean time-shifters ... you know Tivo.

Ok let's get down to business. Last month we had the big spoiler for this Heroes episode...

Claude the invisible guy portrayed by the U.K.'s Dr. Who Christopher Eccleston. Chris was the ninth actor portraying Dr. Who, and is depicted in the photo at right in the role. Look for Claude to be the mature Yoda to Peter power sponge, who is of increasing importance to saving the world. However, the spoiler is Claude is a Heroes hero of ambiguous intentions and we will not know exactly who's side he is on.

Hiro and Ando go on their quest for the samurai sword used by Hiro to battle the monstrous dinosaur in Isaac's famous painting. More Heroes spoilers on the sword here.

There has been a lot of speculation on whether Hiro really goes back to the Jurassic era to fight the nasty T-Rex. However newest whispered spoiler on the street, heard only here is that the painting actually was an allegory, and the real event is that Hiro and Ando come into danger at the exhibit, grab the sword from the samurai warrior display in self-defense. As Hiro swings the weapon, the dinosaur display at the museum serves witness, as memorialized in Isaac's painting. So there are two possibilities - Hiro does battle in Jurassic park, versus the museum. We have been unable to fully verify this one, so it's just a hunch *wink*, we are going with Hiro swings the Heroes sword in the museum, witnessed by the dino-exhibit.

Do you remember Niki, the split personality, surrendered to the police in the mid-season cliff-hanger? Can you imagine what her baaad half Jessica thinks of that? Not a spoiler here, she is frustrated and pissed off!

Claire the healing cheerleader after her discussion with the Haitian memory eraser, and struggles with keeping secrets from uber controlling dad H.R.G. - Mr. Horn Rimmed Glasses (Mr. Bennett)

Here is the "official" word from You can see their episode summary is pretty vague, but some nice spoilers to keep us interested. So take the summary - and spoilers in general - for the fun it is:

The title refers to all the cliffhangers and to the appearance of invisible Claude:

"Following Painful Revelations and Shocking Changes, Many "Heroes" Struggle to Move Forward as a New Hero (guest star Christopher Eccleston) is Revealed"

Then they go into the meat of the episode:

Picking up two weeks after recent events, Nathan’s (Adrian Pasdar) determination to save a comatose Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) forces him to turn to Simone (Tawny Cypress) for help. Isaac’s (Santiago Cabrera) puzzling "Hiro vs. T-Rex" painting inspires Hiro (Masi Oka) and Ando (guest star James Kyson Lee) to search for the pictured samurai sword.
Notice they are coy on whether Hiro goes back to fight the dinosaur. Look for the "fight" to happen either in this episode or within the next 2 weeks.

Jessica (Ali Larter) struggles against Niki’s decision to turn herself into police.
Imagine this.

With his associate Eden dead and Matt on his heels, H.R.G. tries to focus on his orders regarding Sylar (guest star Zachary Quinto).

Hey! Sylar now is a "guest star"! This is the real spoiler. Look for Sylar to come to an end this season.

After being offered a choice by the Haitian (guest star Jimmy Jean-Louis), Claire (Hayden Panettiere) struggles with changes her decision has wrought. Taking up his father’s quest, Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) attempts to share information about who is "on the list" of people with special abilities and the threats to their lives. Meanwhile, a new hero (guest star Christopher Eccleston) makes a shocking debut.

Claude is another guest role.

Glad to see Kring got Eccleston into the storyline. Peter needs a mentor, and obviously-- at least to this point-- Suresh cannot fulfill that role.

Mee too.
