* Viewers will soon learn the fate of D.L. (Leonard Roberts), who took a bullet at the end of last season.
* Niki and son Micah will leave Las Vegas. “Niki is having a really tough time confronting her past and coming to grips with the horrible things [her alternative personality] Jessica did,” says Larter. “She needs to go on a personal journey of redemption, so she temporarily hands Micah over to his relatives in New Orleans.
On their big good-bye, Larter continues - “It’s just very, very sad, but as an actor I loved it! It’s one of those sentimental, pull-the-heartstrings scenes that don’t often happen on Heroes.”
* Micah will move in with his cousin Monica (Dana Davis), a fast-food slinger who uses her abilities to fight crime and corruption in her Katrina-ravaged community. Says Tim Kring - “Monica doesn’t struggle with her newfound powers. She embraces them with enthusiasm.”
