Heroes Reborn: Claire's kids must save the world to save a boring season

After 12 episodes, Heroes Reborn is almost at the end. Anyone else relieved that next Thursday is the Season 1 finale? I don't know about you, but it's been way too long of a ride. Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed the whole Heroes concept, especially when it comes to Zachary Levi as Luke and Heroes original Jack Coleman reviving his role of Noah Bennet. That said, the reboot has been more than lackluster.

The season definitely started out stronger than its closing episodes, so here's hoping the finale perks up. I mean, now that there is nothing left but to literally save the world, I can only hope that the final episode will bring much excitement and action. However, based on past recent episodes, I know better than to get my hopes up.

Basically, Tommy and Malina better freaking save the world or I'm going to be one angry viewer. The entire time I spent watching and reviewing this will turn out to be nothing but a waste if they don't follow in their mother's footsteps.

Let's face it, you know they totally will or that makes for one horrible season. Do you really think they're just going to let the world be destroyed and kill everyone on it? I don't think so. Plus, if (or should I say when?) they save it, maybe viewers will finally learn what happened to Hiro and Noah.

At this point in time, Tommy escaping Evernow (that's right, he is currently trapped in the same place Erica Kravid put his father Hiro Nakamura) and reuniting with Malina is the only thing that will be Heroes Reborn's saving grace. In addition to seeing Luke embrace his powers even more. OK. You caught me, I'm a huge Levi fan and just like watching him in action.

Viewers have been waiting far too long for Tommy and Malina to come face to face after so many years apart to fulfill their Bennet destiny. I am beyond ready to see them in action, because you know they're going to be even stronger together than when using their powers as individuals. I have a feeling Claire would be so proud.

With the H.E.L.E. (Human Extinction Level Event) on the horizon, I'm going to try and stay positive that the finale will be bigger, better and bolder. If not, expect an even more disappointed viewer come next Thursday.

Tommy and Malina, I'm counting on you. I guess they have more than one task to complete than just saving the world and all of humanity.

Heroes Reborn's Season 1 finale airs Thursday, Jan. 21 at 8/7c on NBC.
