Heroes Reborn brings back Hiro to unlock the mystery of the past
After five episodes, there is finally another familiar face from Heroes on Heroes Reborn. Hiro Nakamura is back! It took quite the fight to finally set him free from Erica Kravid's fortress, including the deaths of Quentin and Miko, but he's here to stay — for a bit, anyway.
As the Master of Time and Space, Hiro finally reunited with Noah, which is the best thing that's happened on the show yet. I mean, what Heroes fan didn't enjoy watching this highly anticipated reunion? Thanks to Miko rescuing Hiro from Evernow and sacrificing herself in the process, Hiro is now able to take Noah back to the traumatic day of June 13. Finally, Noah and the fans will learn exactly what happened that day, not to mention, just how Claire died and if she is truly dead.
Hiro was a bit hesitant to time travel, because he never wants to alter time, especially for his or someone else's benefit. However, Noah promised they wouldn't step on any butterflies. Plus, Hiro wants to fix all the wrongs Erica created, since it seems she changed time for her own selfishness.
According to IMDb, Hiro will be in the next two episodes, which are titled "June 13th: Part One" and "June 13th: Part Two." I assume both episodes will revolve around the day that changed the world and made Evos targets. If there are two episodes dedicated to the day Claire supposedly died, then here's hoping they will truly provide all the answers Noah and fans have been waiting for.
If that isn't exciting enough, the promo for next Thursday's episode featured Mohinder Suresh and Angela Petrelli, which means even more Heroes characters will be popping up. The promo also showcased Hiro saying to Noah, "You save the cheerleader." My, how the tables have turned. Oh, and Angela also answered a call from Claire? What?
Finally, Heroes Reborn is starting to pick up and get even more interesting. Thank goodness for Hiro. With that said, here's how fans are welcoming Hiro. Hint: They couldn't be more thrilled.
Heroes Reborn airs Thursdays at 8/7c on NBC.
