This post is going to contain spoilers of the next episode: Homecoming. If you don't want to know, scroll over it.















(This is from the Heroes board... not from me)

VERSION ONE:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYfhSdcxu6o

The NBC preview for Homecoming, let me just say it looks awesome it will most definitely be the best episode thus far. It is a very action packed preview, so my description will be a little lengthy. I chose this copy of the preview over the other ones on YouTube because it's less pixelated . The clip starts with the clock just passing the 8:00 mark, note that in the last picture shown above Peter arrives just at the 8:00 mark. Next we see Jackie and Claire standing in what appears to be the hall. Claire turns around with a slightly frightened look on her face and we see can see a shadow fly by on the roof above them. Next the narrator lets us know that we will finally learn the significance behind "Save the Cheerleader, Save the World." Next we briefly see the cheerleaders walk outside probably to perform for Homecoming, followed by the brief glimpse of Claire running up the stands (The same scene shown in one of the paintings). Next comes a few quick scene flashes, the first is Hiro sitting down at the diner, the second is Niki staring a car mirror, the third is D.L. chasing after Micah near what appears to be a bus stop. Note: Micah is holding his backpack, the one that Jessica gave to Micah that Niki was unaware about (He appears to be reaching into it with one had). The 4th scene that flashes is Peter leaving a building with the number 143. The fifth is Claire with a shocked look on her face moving closer to something going on, Jackie is behind her with a "What are you doing/Stop" look on her face. The 6th flashed scene appears to be Peter throwing black paint on a painting with Simone next to him. The 7th is two Mohinders, one is probably a spectator watching a dream/flashback of himself. The 8th scene appears to be either Nathan or Peter kissing a woman with short brown hair (Possibly Nathan kissing his wife?). The 9th scene is Peter and Sylar staring face to face in front of the trophy case. Almost immediately after the confrontation Peter is thrown back (Probably by Sylar's telekinesis). The 10th scene that flashes by is Claire running, and the 11th is the nuclear explosion. The 12th scene appears to be Claire being lifted from the ground screaming, either by Peter flying or more likely by Sylar's telekinesis. The 13th scene is Mr. Bennet yelling Claire, and the 14th is Claire with blood thickly covering the right side of her face (She is wearing a very shocked expression, possibly Jackie juice ?). The 15th scene appears to be Peter and Sylar having a mid air grapple battle. The 16th scene is D.L. and Micah in the same place as before, but this time Micah has stopped running and both D.L. and Micah have shocked expressions on their faces (D.L. appears to be trying to pull Micah back). My best guess is that they see Jessica approaching (Which could have caused Micah to run to her) approaching holding a large gun accompanied by another man (I'll explain this in the following video description). Alright now the next set of scenes fly by REALLY FAST, so sorry if I miss something. It begins with the home coming banner and block shown at an angle (Peter can be seen under it facing towards it), followed by a brief glimpse of a police siren. There might be a very quick shot of Sylar around the previous two, sorry it's hard to tell Next comes a quick glimpse of Claire, followed by the kissing scene again. Next is the scene where peter being thrown back by a force in front of the trophy case again, followed by Mr. Bennet's scene again. Next it Peter seeing something (probably Sylar) and beginning to run, Claire or another cheerleader can be scene standing behind him. It ends with a quick look at Claire with blood on her face again. Next comes more narration "Don't hear about in the morning" this is great advice, be there to see it the first time! Following this Jackie and Claire appear to be holding some black banner/poster, but then immediately afterwards Claire is thrown back into the wall (Via telekinesis). Next more narration "Be there Monday Night", please do ! Alright that's it for this clip, sorry the length of my description there was a lot in about 30 seconds .


VERSION TWO:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GqsC7XgDsE

Here is another version of the Homecoming preview, this one contains a few different scenes as did the one posted above. The first difference is we see Niki holding what appears to be a very large gun somewhere in the desert. She is being accompanied by a scruffy looking man, Note: I mentioned this in the above description. Next we see the scene where Claire talks with Peter in front of the trophy case before changing. After we a painting of Peter with a shocked look on his face, followed by Ando looking at something with an expression of deep thought (Possibly a change to the setting around him caused by Hiro?). Later around the 17 second mark, we can see Peter chasing Claire up the stands, he is one step below the Stand Claire jumped/fell on. Immediately after that scene we see Claire standing and running together with Peter, we can see Sylar is just entering the area behind them. Finally the last difference is a scene with Claire against a wall looking very exhausted (Possibly after she was thrown against the wall) Other than those scenes, I think the rest of the clip can be scene in the above video.


Sneak Peak: 'Heroes'

http://video.accesshollywood.com/player.html?dlid=44655

A very lengthy preview for Homecoming, 8 Minutes and 10 seconds long. Before deciding to watch it please note that it's about 20% of the episode, so you may want to reconsider it. The preview begins with Zack and Claire sitting on the stands, Zack notices the principle walk out to post the winner for Homecoming Queen. Claire doesn't seem very interested, but Zack convinces her to go see if she won because she is a finalist. We can see Brody in a wheelchair shortly after. Next we see Jackie getting in Claire's face about running for Homecoming Queen because she handicapped the football teams MVP (Brody). Jackie continues to insist that Claire doesn't have a chance of winning this popularity contest, but soon after discovers that Claire is the winner. Claire is shocked and then sees Zack and other students who aren't jocks cheering for her. The next scene is of Peter and Simone looking at the missing painting and it turns out I was right that it wasn't one of the ones shown before. Nathan comes off as being very upset, and says "Is that supposed to be Peter". Nathan comes to believe that its the only copy of the painting and then destroys it by throwing black paint on it (Note: Simone didn't want him to). Simone tells Peter the situation and reveals to him a picture of the painting she took with her digital camera. The picture is finally revealed showing Peter dead/injured on the ground of the gym below the Homecoming banner (Note: the time on the clock is about 8:10). Peter explains to her that he has to go and they end with a kiss (The unknown kiss described in the above previews). Next we see Zack come to "rescue" Claire from being grounded to convince her to come to Homecoming. Claire realises who her real friends are (Zack) and invites him to the dance with her. Zack doesn't seem too interested, and says who he likes who he is and doesn't care what others think (Alluding to being gay). Claire too excepts who she has become. Next we see Peter at the high school, in front of the trophy case. He sees the news of Jackie being a hero and comes to believe that she is the one she must save. Claire bumps into Peter and Peter learns that Claire knows who she is and hints that Jackie isn't the special one but I don't think he catches on.

-Yahoo! TV Fall 2006 Preview - Homecoming

http://tv.yahoo.com/feature/fall06/?d=503

The Yahoo clips just came out, except this time around it's nothing new. The first clip is the 2nd version of the Preview shown above. The second clip is just a recap of previously shown scenes involving Mr. Bennet, Issac, Claire, and the paintings. The rest of the clips are all shown discussed in the description above in the "Sneak Peak: 'Heroes'" description. I'll just include this incase anyone wants to view the clips by themselves rather than the combined version.

Thanks!!! They have a great spoiler thread on the official Heroes board.
So, that's where I'm pulling from. And, it's pretty damn accurate too.

Any more info. you can find post it. I hate waiting for shows, always ruin it though. Don't care. Needs me the spoilers.

It's like, if saving Claire is the focal point of the show, in all the ads, etc., I hope more heroes converge to help her out. I don't need to see Crazy Nikki and her marital problems or Hiro flashing back in time at Mel's Diner you know?

I can't watch that spoiler until just before the show, because I'll just be aching for more and that's torture.

I don't much care about the Nikki/Jess storyline... but, there is a point to it.
So, I won't give up on it... and hope that it develops better than it's been.

Not really, this seems like X-Men meets Kramer vs. Kramer or some crap. They either need to expand the story, make her a clear cut bad or good guy or be done with it. It's like, get to the point already.

SPOILER WARNING from AICN.com

Credit to: Hercules

What?s it called?
?Homecoming.?

Who?s responsible?
This is the first ?Heroes? teleplay credited to Adam Armus & Nora Kay Foster (?Birds of Prey,? ?Kevin Hill,? ?Night Stalker?).

What does TV Guide say?
?Claire's high-school homecoming turns into an event marked by tragedy and change. Also, Nathan locates the painting Peter needs to ?save the cheerleader, save the world?; a boy with a special gift draws Mohinder back to his father's research; Micah makes a daring move to help Niki, while Jessica hunts for D.L.; and Ando (James Kyson Lee) waits for Hiro to return from his mission to rescue Charlie. Jayma Mays. Eden McCain: Nora Zehetner. Zach: Thomas Dekker. Nirad: Shishir Kurup.?

The big news?
It seems like every episode of ?Heroes? introduces a new mutant to the mix, but this week we learn that a major character possesses a heretofore hidden superpower. This superpower will, one suspects, remind many a fan of an old David Lynch project.

Is it Mohinder who manifests the new superpower?
Mohinder remains superpower-free.

Does Jack Bennett grow an eraserhead?
What? No.

What else is TV Guide not telling us?
Tonight?s episode of ?Heroes? is the best yet, and I knew it would be by the end of the first act. If you don?t yet love Claire Bennett, comely self-healing cheerleader, you are going to love her tonight. If you don?t yet love her nerd pal Zack, that?s going to change too. Oh, and it turns out there?s now a copy of Chandra Suresh?s book in Odessa, baby!

How does Claire?s high-school homecoming turn into ?an event marked by tragedy and change??
It?s a big episode. Lots of the major characters converge on Ando, Claire and her dad in Odessa.

Is Sylar one of the major characters converging on Odessa?
He is. And we get a much better look at him.

If Sylar?s involved, are Matt and Audrey hot on his trail?
No, Matt and Audrey are entirely absent this week.

Is this the episode in which Peter saves the cheerleader and saves the world?
Claire definitely will need the saving before episode?s end. But in the teaser, Nathan takes drastic action to keep his brother out of harm?s way.

Does Nathan try to save the cheerleader in Peter?s place?
He does not.

Do we learn this week why saving Claire will save the world?
We do not.

Do we not learn because Claire is not saved?
That would be telling.

Does Hiro return?
The whereabouts of Hiro during all the tragedy and change remains a mystery at episode?s end. Presumably we?ll learn more of his fate in next week?s episode, titled ?Six Months Ago.?

I trust Mohinder?s decision to revisit his father?s research proves fruitful?
Almost immediately. And it turns out Chandra Suresh had the knowing of many things.

How does it end?
?Hold that thought, OK? I got to go make a wish.?

-----------

post #11  quote:

The entire cheerleading squad is shocked and disgusted when Claire wins homecoming queen even after she sent the team's star quarterback to the hospital. Claire has won this honor because the school's geeks and outcasts voted for her.

Nathan confirms with Simone that she didn't tell Peter about the painting recovered from Linderman. Simone watches helplessly as Nathan destroys the painting, worried that Peter is going to get himself killed if he travels to Texas to "save the cheerleader."

Niki prepares for the battle ahead by purchasing a Blaser R93 sniper rifle. "We're going hunting" she tells her reflection in a car's side view mirror.

Somewhere in Utah along highway 12, Micah pester D.L. about returning to his mother. D. L. gets out of the car to use the bathroom at a rest stop. When he returns, Micah is gone.

Mohinder wonders how he could possibly dream about a sister he never knew had or how he dreamed of a boy who actually exists? According to the file, the boy's name is Sanjob Iyer, and he has the ability to enter one's dreams and change one's perceptions... a kind of spirit guide.

Simone is convinced to show Peter a digital image of the painting, which shows Peter's own death at 8:12 that very night. Peter knows that he has to go. With a hug and kiss, he says goodbye to Simone to find his destiny.

Isaac's painting doesn't help Mr. Bennett track down Sylar. He demands that Eden have him paint another when the artist wakes up and instructs Eden to go to the high school, find Sylar, and take him out.

Zach impresses Claire when he tells her that he campaigned for her to win homecoming queen. He also hands her a copy of Chandra Suresh's book, which includes a chapter on spontaneous regeneration. Jackie interrupts their moment with some callous statements about Zach's sexual orientation. Claire responds by knocking her block off.

D. L. finds Micah at a bus stop. Micah tells his dad about Jessica and how sick his mom is. " She can't help herself. She can't control it." His boy's words get through, and D. L. agrees to turn around to help Nikki.

Mohinder finds Sanjob Iyer in a crowded marketplace. "You came to me in my dream last night," Mohinder tells the boy. "I don't come to anyone," he replies. "They come to me... they have questions that need answers." Mohinder asks which path he should take and the boy tells him, "You already have the answer you seek."

At the Burnt Toast Diner, Ando waits for Hiro to return from the past when he notices a snapshot on a memorial wall for Charlie the waitress: it's Hiro with Charlie on her birthday. Ando asks another waitress if she knows Hiro, and she says, "Of course... he and Charlie were tight... but he popped out of her life weeks ago."

Claire is infuriated when her father refuses to let her leave the house for homecoming, but Zach shows up and rescues her from her bedroom window. She invites him to homecoming as her date, and he stammers with his reply, admitting that he's gay.

A cab pulls up to the Burnt Toast Diner, and Peter Petrelli gets out. Ando tells him that Hiro has traveled back in time, and Peter admits that he has no abilities of his own, but when he's with others who do, he can absorb their powers. With an hour before Claire's murder, Peter leaves the diner to save the cheerleader.

Sanjob Iyer gives Mohinder another vision: he sees his colleague yelling at his father about the boy and his father's theories. He sees himself telling his father that he just read his book on evolution. He sees his father casting him out, refusing his aid in his quest to find those who have taken the next evolutionary step. When Mohinder snaps out of his vision, he knows what path he must go down. He cracks his father's computer password - Shanti ? and a list of everyone with special abilities appears on the screen.

At the high school, Peter runs into Claire and asks her where he can find Jackie, the girl who rushed into fire ? Peter is looking to save the wrong girl! Outside the school, Peter stands before the homecoming banner... the scene of his impending death.

While Claire argues with Jackie in the locker room, the lights go out and a black shadow streaks across the wall. Claire senses that something isn't right. She turns around to see Sylar choking Jackie to death. Her screams bring Mr. Bennett and Peter running as Claire is thrown against the wall. Her arm breaks, but she regenerates as Jackie takes her last breath.

Peter faces off against Sylar in the halls, as Sylar sends locker doors flying off their hinges. Two minutes before she's to die, Claire runs from the school in terror and up the steps that Isaac had painted. Peter grabs her, helping her flee from Sylar's calm advance. Peter yells at her to run into the bright lights of the crowded stadium, and then turns to battle Sylar. The two men tumble off the building in a heap. Blood pools around Peter as he and Sylar lay motionless.

Claire finds Peter's bloodied body on the ground. She leans over him, and he sputters back to life, his broken bones and smashed body regenerating before her eyes. Ambulance and police sirens scream in the distance as Claire runs to get help, but her father stops her and pulls her into his arms.

Sylar limps off into a grove of trees where Eden is hiding. "You don't want to hurt me," she says in a strange and eerie voice, "We just need to talk... but first, you need to sleep." The mysterious Haitian emerges from the shadows and wipes his hand across Sylar's face, causing him to crumple to the ground.

As Peter gets to his feet, the police arrive and take him into custody.

Mohinder tells his mom that he turned down Mira's job offer and is returning to New York.

Outside the Burnt Toast Diner, Jessica gets D. L. into her rifle's site and fires.

Six months earlier, Hiro materializes in the diner and tells Charlie that he is there to save her life.

Good episode. We finally see Sylar

Peter coming to the rescue was good, saving Claire, saving the world, yadda. Too bad he didn't have any backup. Stupid Hiro is busy in the past, the jerk. Nathan is a punk, trying to f up the painting.

In the synopsis I posted it said a major character is revealed to have a power... who was it?

I don't know... could it be Mohinder? Did he have the power to dream of the boy, and to find that he's already got the answer?


Well, with Peter's arrest, I'm wondering if he will now be brought to the attention of the FBI, and meet up with Matt. Then they will find that he's not Sylar.
