Tomorrow night Heroes rolls on with its third episode of season 3, and despite the fact that our own Adam Sweeney gave the first two episodes relatively high marks, I am not feeling the direction of this season. They opened with too many complicated story-lines and too many forced twists. Then again, they are making up for a relatively lackluster second season in the eyes of fans.
But lets put all of that aside for a moment, as this is about showing you some new promo photos for tomorrow night’s episode, entitled “One of Us, One of Them.” And despite the almost criminal lack of Kristen Bell in these photos, it appears as if the direction of the “Villains” chapter may come into focus a little bit better in episode 3. Look for a bigger presence from Brea Grant as Daphne, the speedy nemesis of Hiro (Masi Oka) and Ando (James Kyson Lee). As well, it will be interesting to see what happens when Sylar is teamed up with HRG, a situation that could produce this series’ odd couple. Another interesting observation — we see the return of Micah (Noah Grey-Cabey), who was not seen in the first two episodes. Could this also mean the “official” return of Niki Sanders (Ali Larter)?
