A Theoretical Look at Heroes
I'm terrible with character names and I bet you are too, so I'm going to give each character their own nickname for easier future reference.
Flyboy will become the leader of the Heroes
Remember how the Terminator was sent back in time to warn and protect John Conner since he was the future leader of the human race? I think the exact same thing happened when the future Hiro traveled back in time to give instructions to Flyboy. Of all the “Heroes” Flyboy seems to be most eager to explore his powers and his background in saving lives makes him a likely leader choice (and Hiro is eliminated because he can’t speak fluent English yet). This is mostly a hunch, but a leader is needed and he’s the closest thing to a main character that this show has.
Creepy McCreep has special powers too
We’ve already seen McCreep act threateningly towards his daughter Pretty Betty, kidnap and question the Smooth Operator, and most likely he killed the Doc’s father. However, we haven’t learned all that much about him. In my mind this means he’s got more secrets. He’s either got a super power we haven’t seen yet, possibly so big time that it isn’t easily used (like blowing stuff up? – aka the foretold explosion in NY) or else he’s simply a middle man to a more evil super boss. This could potentially set up McCreep to die in some manner in which he expresses regret at his evil ways but during this time the true evil mastermind is revealed. I’m keeping my eyes open on this one.
Hiro’s friend will also discover special powers or die (maybe both).
We’ve already seen how Hiro and his friend are both in Peppy’s comics that show the future. But if Hiro’s friend is going to stick around he’s got to put up or shut up. He’ll either discover he has some new odd but probably surprisingly powerful ability (like turn invisible) or else die. I’m leaning towards death. There’s a tv rule that Death = Great Drama and who else is going to die? That’s right, Hiro’s friend is the only clear candidate.
Flying Clinton will join the Anti-Heroes
Good guys fight bad guys right? So where are the bad guys? Yes there’s Creepy McCreep and the Black Dude (and we’ve also got Hot Tamale’s husband, more on him later), but there’s got to be more. There would be a certain amount of cosmic irony (or predictable tv plotting) if Flying Clinton and Flyboy end up on opposite sides of the battlefield. We know that Flyboy is practically Ghandi with more bangs and Flying Clinton not only is a politician (strike 1), but he’s had an affair (strike 2), and he’s willingly accepting a bribe from his blackmailers (strike 3). He’s shown an opportunistic nature and the bad guys are going to give him an opportunity he can’t refuse.
Hot Tamale’s ex-hubby is a bad guy
Next week’s preview show’s Hot Tamale’s hubby walking through walls ala Kitty Pryde (from the X-men). If he’s got powers he’s either a good guy or a bad guy and I’m betting he’s a bad guy. Simple as that.
Flying Clinton's blackmailer/benefactor is with the Anti-Heroes
Whoever is blackmailing Flying Clinton is not a good guy, therefore he's a bad guy. Who else is a bad guy on the show? Mmm, Creepy McCreep. I therefore predict that Flying Clinton is being backed by the bad guys and will in turn join them.
I’m all theoried out at the moment, but please leave your own thoughts and theories. Between all of us, we’ll share the satisfaction of knowing what’s going to happen before it happens, kind of like Peppy the crazy painter.
