Was the episode not tonight? I came here expecting updates, 'cause I thought I missed the episode. Am I missing something?--Riddler 23:37, 16 March 2009 (EDT)

  • They took the week off, so it's on next Monday. --TrueBlueBrooklynite 23:39, 16 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Any reason? Was something else more important? lol--Riddler 23:43, 16 March 2009 (EDT)
      • I don't know for sure, but filming on the finale wrapped this past weekend. I imagine somebody smart figured they'd all be hung over and not wanting to do Heroes Interactive updates, updates, and all the other extra work that the production crew does on a Monday. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:55, 16 March 2009 (EDT)
        • Ah thanks. I am in England so I wondered why there was no Heroes this week in US. Thanks for update. Hopwas2007 06:17, 18 March 2009 (EDT)


  • hi i am a non us user and want to know eho is rebel , can someone post it here after they waqtch the episode , thanks
    • Once the episode has aired wait a few hours and check: Rebel. It should be updated as to who Rebel really is after the episode has aired (keep in mind, however, that it probably won't be changed until after every US timezone has seen it) --Peter 20:39, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
  • ok , thanks

micah's voice

IceGhost78 looks like micah went through puberty!

I was just about to say that. -Sincerely, Thrashmeister » talk- 21:28, 23 March 2009 (EDT)

Yeah, he had like a much deeper voice than in Season 1 and 2--ExiledPrince 02:59, 24 March 2009 (EDT)--

  • yeah even though the Heroes-verse has only progressed 7 months...real life has progressed 3 years....mind you that Heroes did start on the same time frame as us, both in Sept./Oct. of 2006, and now they are only in Mar./Apr. of 2007 while we are in Mar. of 2009...which i find really weird to think about--Anthony Gooch 20:05, 24 March 2009 (EDT)


And that is all I have to say. --OprahDust

IceGhost78 omg
Illusionist1920 Can Daphne be dead for real this time, please?
    • How could you say that?!? Daphne was the best character on the show after Sylar! She doesn't whine, she doesn't have issues, she's just awesome.--Uncanny474 16:27, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

Bryan Fuller, You Amaze Me.

Tonight's episode showed flat out the kind of influence Bryan Fuller brings to this show. You could sense his presence in Exposed, but he was given full control in this episode, and it shows. There's a genius to what he does, from his artistic yet realistic dialogue (HRG's "big, fat cut to black" line was great), to his real understanding of characters and relationships. With the Matt/Daphne storyline, he summarized their relationship perfectly: It was one borne of dreams, and one to end in them. Me and my friends were greatly affected by that scene, and agree it was one of the best sendoffs this show has EVER produced.

Since Season 1, Heroes has had its series of problems. But after the absolute amazement I felt tonight, I have hope for something new to emerge from this show. It's that return of magic that made the first season so great. Before the formula, before Claire's blood, there was a magic to the show that made fans like me wish we had powers, that we were as blessed with the joys and strifes as the characters in this show. Bryan Fuller, as an aspiring writer, I have to say: You are an inspiration. --Cairoi 23:30, 23 March 2009 (EDT)

    • This show was losing me a little more every episode after the first 3 of this volume. Some storylines with Elle, Tracy, Mohinder, Peter had so much promise but were all below of what I had imagined and expected of heroes. A lot of the events and twists in season 3 where too easy to guess, which was unlike heroes if you look at it's first season. Anyways .. I've bitched about this into even furtur details on a lot of other discussion pages. But now ... THANK GOD FOR BRIAN, he totally made me hoocked to Heroes again. I absolutely loved this episode. Just when I was beginning to loose faith in the show. Fire all the writers who did poorly on this season and bring back the S1 originals!! DarthYotho 16:07, 25 March 2009 (EDT)


=( -Sincerely, Thrashmeister » talk- 22:00, 23 March 2009 (EDT)

  • I'm crying(((( farewell, Nemesis. We always loved you(((( --Altes 02:49, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

Well, that explains it.

I thought the interactions between Daphne and Matt were stupid, but I guess the ending explained it. There were still a bunch of other stupid things about this episode though, IMO. Bloodbath 22:01, 23 March 2009 (EDT)

Bryan Fuller is God. - anon

tracys death was mad gay, felt like i was watching dragon ball z there when she did that. daphne died and i was in love with brea grant IceGhost78
Daphne died? how the Hell did I miss that? Guess I was too busy spazzing out over the pure awesomeness of that episode! TomJs35713
Daphne was so awesome, and i also love brea grant. Why must they kill all the main characters from season 2 and 3? I rather see someone like Mohinder, Nathan or Angela die. //Larvig 10:39, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
Daphne was cool for about three episodes... and then she met Matt, made Matt ten times lamer than he ever had been, and became totally useless herself. Then again, almost everything about Volume 3 was lame... >.> I will say that my love for Angela has increased once again, however. And Tracy's probably the fakeout death. Illusionist1920
Freeze Flash (what I call it) is a viable use for freezing and cyrokinesis (whichever term you prefer). I had a heroes-like fan fic of a man with cyrokinesis. The strongest thing he can do is basically what Tracy did tonight, Only my character can freeze faster, his eyes glowed, and he didn't die. So while my freeze flash might not have been as realistic, I like what they did, because it feels like a nod off to my character (even though it's not). --Dman dustin 00:07, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
Tracy isn't dead. 53:29 She planned all of this with HRG. Told you I loved this episode :D. Next on my list .. Elle has to survive with Noah Jr. in her belly and Barbara steps into the picture.DarthYotho 16:44, 25 March 2009 (EDT)

Breaking the Ice

Ok...i'll go ahead and ask it...What do we think about Tracy's supposed death....God, i hope it's not final!--Anthony Gooch 22:08, 23 March 2009 (EDT)

Betting it's a fake out, or else they wouldn't have bothered with that eye shot. -Illusionist1920 22:09, 23 March 2009 (EDT)

IceGhost78 i don't know man it looked like the real deal, recovering from shattering after being frozen? but i will reiterate my previous statement and say her death was too fake
It really looked final. But Illusionist brings up a good point with that eye shot. I mean, even for Tracy, that shouldn't be possible... unless her powers are evolving. Maybe she can transform herself into ice and/or water now, a la liquid man or Elisa or Donald Essex. Just speculation. But I really hope it isn't final. I didn't like Tracy at first but this volume, her character grew on me. And it just isn't Heroes without Ali Larter in some form. :P -Sincerely, Thrashmeister » talk- 22:11, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
Hey, she was an identical triplet, so there's still one more character for Ali to play if Tracy is indeed dead. Though it's hard for me to conclude that she's dead with that wink after she was shattered. (Admin 22:15, 23 March 2009 (EDT))
I saw her eye blink in the ice or was that just me--Wowsters 22:37, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
There was a wink, however the meaning behind it isn't exactly clear. (Admin 22:38, 23 March 2009 (EDT))
IceGhost78 i saw her left eye cry (leave a tear) and blink
I think Tracy isn't dead I think shes going to come back together some how or maybe come back as someone else like maybe ... well not Tracy but Ali Larter and states that shes in every episode this volume.--Icykidd 22:43, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
  • Unless she has somehow aquired regeneration, she's dead. Bloodbath 22:52, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Ok, call me hopeful but, maybe regeneration or reforming is a byproduct much like plant manipulation or water mimicry.--Anthony Gooch 23:18, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
      • I don't think ice reforms itself. What you're thinking of is water but apparently Tracy is unable to manipulate that state (other than freezing it) --Formless 23:30, 23 March 2009 (EDT)

The only reason she froze was she froze everything with water on it in the room and she had water on her too from the sprinklers. If she did die, at least she did it saving someone else and thinking of someone other than herself for once.--WarGrowlmon18 00:31, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

I really don't think she's dead. I mean, the wink wouldn't have been included if she was. There would be no possible way for a frozen/dead body to accomplish that distinct of a wink. After that performance, I love Tracy even more than I did in the beginning of the season. Long live Tracy and Freezing! Angela was great in this episode as well, along with HRG. The Hiro/Ando situation didn't turn out as bad of a story line as I thought it would, but Daphne dying sotra disappointed me (had a soft spot for that character :)). The absolute best thing about this episode was definitely the parking garage, and it should ABSOLUTELY be the cover pic. Dean 01:29, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
  • Dollars to doughnuts, Tracy's fine. The wink on her ice-head is proof enough for me. I saw it as a "little do they know..." type moment. --SacValleyDweller (talk) 01:53, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

In the X-Men comics, Bobby Drake aka Iceman can create an Organic-Ice Form. Which is and I quote from the ability to not only cover his body with ice, but to actually become organic ice. Though the appearance is similar, Iceman is now actually translucent in his ice form. Iceman is virtually indestructible in this form: he can reform his shattered body, and even if the rest of his body is completely destroyed, his head can form a new body from frozen liquids. In this form he will be able to use the moisture in the air to form spikes, shields and other extra appendages to his body. If this icy form is shattered, he can rebuild himself through the same process. All he needs is a surrounding body of water sufficient for his needs.

If her frozen face can still blink it in theory could do what Bobby Drake can, there's plenty of frozen liquid around to reconstruct her body. Never shown this before in the comics that I am aware of but it could be possible for her to not only reconstruct her body but redesign what she looks like. So until we get absolute confirmation that she is 100% dead I call it speculation to say she is.--Snow Leapord 11:48, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

  • TL;DR, Xmen is crap anyway lol and completely irrelevant xD Ali larter will return, probably as tracy, maybe as babara according to the writers. --Lolwut 14:04, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

Yeah because we know that this show has never borrowed any ideas from the xmen before.

    • Maybe the "eye shot" was meant to show Tracy's peace and confidence. Let's not forget that this is a show called "Heroes." Maybe that last shot was to give us all a since of fulfillment. Maybe she accepted her fate, and I don't think Tracy is above dying for a cause. The alternative was going back into captivity, or maybe even dying at the hand of Nathan's men. Remember it wasn't all too long ago that Tracy tried to commit suicide. Her character has come a long way. And this was a poetic way to end her journey. She wasn't a "tragic hero." This could have simply been her "hero's last stand." Besides Barbara has to be introduced sometime. When better to make your debut then after "your identical sister's heroic death"? This feels so familiar... Judging from Tracy's overall storyline, character development, and just the way the scene was written, I'd say it seems pretty final. Then again, Heroes has a way of breaking all the rules, and doing so beautifully I might add. Either way, the climax came together precisely. I can tell that a lot of planning must have gone into it. They must have had this idea in mind for quite a while now. In fact, I would say that the scene had the quality standards that of one made for a season finale. I just can't wait to see what they think of next! --Mohinder613 (talk) 17:44, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
      • Tracy's not dead. She winked. She's currently melting into the drain and she's going to go back together. Let's see if I'm right.--Mistyjo 19:54, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
      • The commentary would agree with you --Action Figure 02:49, 25 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Tracy did wink after being shattered and if they follow suit with Iceman from X-Men, She could become extremely powerful and almost unstoppable (how do you destroy someone who can exist as ice/water and possibly water vapor?). Special abilities have shown to evolve over time; maybe we saw that in action in this scene. --Denali 09:03, 26 March 2009 (EDT)


To quote BTE:

"“Will we be seeing Clea DuVall's character Audrey Hanson again? She was a great guest star. Will we be seeing her again in ‘Fugitives’ or later volumes hunting our Heroes?”

Joe Pokaski & Aron Coliete: We actually talked a lot about Audrey Hanson and bringing back Clea DuVall. It seemed like a natural fit for the “Fugitives” storyline. But, I’m sorry to say you won’t be seeing Clea during this arc and the reason for that will be revealed tonight in “Cold Snap.” "

Did I miss something? What was the reason she wouldn't be appearing? -Sincerely, Thrashmeister » talk- 22:33, 23 March 2009 (EDT)

  • Could be something cut from the episode and is in a deleted scene or something.
    • BTEs are usually released a few hours before their respective episodes. By that time, they would know what scenes were cut and which weren't. I'm pretty sure I just missed the explanation... -Sincerely, Thrashmeister » talk- 00:33, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
      • Perhaps it's because they brought back Janice, but it's not really clear to me either.--MiamiVolts (talk) 03:32, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

Only Micah?

I'm kind of disappointed that only Micah was Rebel and no one else, I was expecting a little bit more like molly or something--Wowsters 23:01, 23 March 2009 (EDT)

  • Perhaps we don't know everything yet. Like LAWR.--Ikkian 23:00, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
  • I really like the message that Rebel's identity sends. It doesn't necessarily take a huge organization to fight another huge organization. All it takes is a person with enough drive and motivation...and a kick-ass power. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:19, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
    • I always suspected it was Micah and I was right. As for LAWR we know one of them is Anna so another is probably Ricardo Silva aka Red Eye. Someone thought L might be for Leona.--WarGrowlmon18 00:34, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
      • What's a LAWR?--Altes 02:51, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
        • W could be Molly Walker.--Mistyjo 09:59, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
          • surely then wouldn't be LAMR :P i dont really know what usefull things she can do, lol she has a pretty poor ability --Lolwut 14:07, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
            • I disagree - IMHO, Molly's ability to locate anyone would help immensely - could give Rebel the whereabouts of anyone at any time. --Jrrenola 15:15, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
              • I disagree - Micah is keeping tabs on all the surveillance in Building 26, he's pretty good with GPS, he doesn't need anyone else. And not to toot my own horn or anything, but YES, I was right about Rebel! :)--JessicaHeartsMatt 18:18, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
                • Right, it would be LAMR, unless they wanted a cool name like LAWR, then they'd use her last initial, wouldn't they? W for Walker. She'd be very useful. Micah couldn't know where everyone was because not everyone is carrying phones or walking in front of a camera he's watching. America's not fully wired... yet. Plus, Molly and Micah are friends.--Mistyjo 18:36, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
                  • Remember though, mohinder and matt sent Molly somewhere at the start of season 3 I think. Could the W be for West though? He might want to help Claire etc. Although, Molly would be extremely useful with her ability.--Fr0z3nB0nes 04:11, 25 March 2009 (EDT)
  • I don't know if I heard right but didn't he say "She said they'd be following you"...I'm hoping its Hana but I prob miss heard :P--Drwho113
    • You did, he said "I thought there would be a good chance they would be following you" or something along them lines :) --posted by Laughingdevilboy

Talk 13:58, 25 March 2009 (EDT) Rachel. Therequiembellishere 09:24, 25 March 2009 (EDT)

  • More likely to be Rebel, especially as rachel didn't know what LAWR was in one comic.

Lead image?

I'm thinking the parking garage. ^_^ --Whizzles 23:16, 23 March 2009 (EDT)

  • Of course, we gotta pay our respects and give her props!...i agree!--Anthony Gooch 23:19, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
  • I was thinking of the garage...or the closeup of Tracy's mouth with her cold breath visible. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:20, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Ryan, what are we (and by we i mean you lol) gonna do about the title screen...i think this is the first time they've separated the Chapter number from the Chapter name, putting them in 2 different screenshots--Anthony Gooch 23:26, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
      • It is the first time, you're right. I'd say choose one or the other. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:28, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
      • Hey just had an idea...We could use the first title shot ("Chapter Seven" on the heat lamps) as the title image. Then for the lead image, we could use the profile shot of Tracy blowing cold air, but surrounded with the red heat (without the "Cold Snap" text, though). That's kinda cool. I think it'd work nicely... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:30, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
        • Couldn't we combine the two in a single picture?--Ikkian 23:29, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
          • Nope, the first one was from a wide shot with the text on the heat lamps. The second was from a closeup with the text right by Tracy's mouth. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:31, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
            • I meant, combine them into a picture by showing both parts by themselves? Basically just putting the chapter's number picture over the chapter's title picture. (Again failing to express myself correctly! Yay!)--Ikkian 23:34, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
              • Yeah, I still don't understand. So you want to put the wide shot of the heat lamps over the closeup of Tracy's breath? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:36, 23 March 2009 (EDT)
                • Like over (as in up/down), but not over (as in merged into one). Makes sense now?--Ikkian 00:03, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
                  • No. I still don't know how a closeup image and a wide shot image would look good together, one on the top, and one on the bottom. Wouldn't it be much easier to just choose one of the two images and stick with it? I think it's fine to use the "Chapter Seven" on the heat lamps as the title card (650x365) and the cold breath as the lead image (300x169). -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:29, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
                  • I think what Ikkian means is to juxtapose the two shots on top of one another, either in one individual image or on the article itself. -Sincerely, Thrashmeister » talk- 00:31, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
                    • I like where he's going with the idea, that we need to use both images that have the chapter number ant the titles (the wide shot of the heat lamps and the close shot of the Tracy). We need to use both images to show that the title was split between two cards. I'd say put the two images side by side in the usual place Ep title cards (like I did on Volume Two). --SacValleyDweller (talk) 09:33, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
                    • /vote for the garage scene as the cover, and "cold snap" as the title. Dean 01:49, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
                    • I second (third?) the garage scene as cover pic. It kicked all kinds of ass! Use "Cold Snap" since it's the title of the episode. "Chapter Seven" is pretty self-explanatory, no? Lile1293
                      • Before reading this, I was playing around with the title pic, to get both the chapter and the title in the same frame...see what yall think. I think it works well, in the alotted space. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 03/24/2009 11:15 (EST)
                        • That was exactly what I was thinking about! Thanks!--Ikkian 18:32, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
                        • Looks very good, HDS! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:03, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

New actors and characters


We need to name the agents. We also need to rename the Manhattan agent and Daphne's escort agent, who both appeared in this episode as those characters, but those names don't fit... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:35, 23 March 2009 (EDT)


One of the best episodes EVER, if not the best. Nothing in this episode is annoying or boring, just plain comedy, drama, action, plot-developing and even sadness. This is really the 1st time I enjoy Hiro and Ando scenes since Season 1. The way Daphne died was EXTREMELY sad. Peter flying Angela to safety was fantastic, especially the scene at the Statue of Liberty. BRYAN FULLER NEVER EVER LEAVE HEROES AGAIN!! --JLYK 18:05, 24 March 2009 (EST)

  • BRIAN FULLER IS A F**KING GENIUS! BEST VOLUME EVER!--Altes 08:21, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
  • I don't get it. I mean, it was a fine episode but there was a lot of stupid stuff. Bloodbath 13:25, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
    • You mean baby Matt? --Altes 14:00, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
  • I love this episode! It's by far the best episode of this season. And one of the best in the whole series. Bloodbath, I really don't see anything stupid in this episode. It was perfect! I'm so happy this episode got great reviews all around the internet! There are very little complains. This episode was really amazing! Bryan Fuller, you're a real genius!--Alen (talk) 13:49, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Baby Matt's power sucks, at least for now. The time stopping scene was stupid. The part with Peter flying up with Angela was stupid. The entire thing at the end with Tracy was silly, it seemed like something out of an anime, and was really cheesy. No Sylar even though he was lurking around at the end of the previous episode. Tracy centric, and I hate Tracy. Noah saying "Rebel, Rebel" was full of cheese. That's my opinion, sorry. I usually defend Heroes when everyone else is going on about how much they hate it, but I couldn't stand this episode. I did like the bit at the end with Daphne and Matt though, so there's one thing.

    • Sure the episode was good, but a Tracy-centric(sort of) episode was never really going to fly with me, I hated her but at least she had a cool final scene(presumably). My problem with the episode is not enough Peter and no Sylar. That's like driving without the brakes.--Steely McBeam - (talk) 09:17, 26 March 2009 (EDT)
  • For an episode without Sylar it was surprisingly good! I wonder how long the Touch and Go lasts? Is Hiros time stopping power restored permanently? It makes sense that he only gets half his powers back because he is rubbish with no powers and they have made a concerted effort to eliminate all time-traveling powers from the cast. --Thanatos 15:20, 29 March 2009 (EDT)

Episode Image

I uploaded the scene with Danko and Tracy but I can't figure out how to put it in the correct category.

The cover should be of Tracy just starting to use her power, where the camera is just starting to zoom out from her face. Dean 10:27, 24 March 2009 (EDT)


This is one of the best episodes of the season! I love it! Tracy could be dead? her power is really cool! But I think she could do what Sylar did, when he fought with Peter on the future, does anybody remember? and the Peter scene was pretty cool! it was like Nelson saying: HaHa!--Themd 09:08, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

  • The writers say Tracy will be back, so... --Altes 12:03, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Lovely episode! I knew from the first two scenes that it would have that certain tone that we all loved from the first season. The rest of the episode didn't disappoint, though I thought the revealing of Rebel should have been a tad bit more dramatic. Though I'm a Micah fan, I have to admit, I would have liked to see someone who was a little more "powerful" turn out to be Rebel, but then again, it was a fresh twist. Mohinder is finally back! I was getting worried when he disappeared for three weeks, but I hope that he'll get back to his somewhat normal life. This is irrelevant, but I liked the Gwen Stefani reference. Though I'm not a fan of hers, I actually named a character in the book I'm writing after her so I got excited when I saw the balloon in the hospital room. --Mohinder613 (talk) 16:36, 24 March 2009 (EDT)


Was it really a wink? It looked more like she was shedding a tear. By the way, kudos to Fuller, best episode of season 3 so far --Rod 13:39, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

  • It was both. The camera zoomed to the face, the right eye winked, and as it re-opened, a tear immediately ran down the right cheek. --HiroDynoSlayer (talk) 03/25/2009 11:40 (EST)

Millie's umbrella

What's the deal with Millie's umbrella? There's a closeup of Angela taking it when she leaves the restaurant, and it looks as if she's putting something in the umbrella when she's walking on the street (or perhaps she's just folding it up), followed by another closeup of the umbrella, where she hands it over to the doorman as she enters the building? --Maldivia 13:46, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

  • It's raining?--NiveKJ13 (talk2me) 14:03, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Maybe it's a magic umbrella. --Lolwut 14:09, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
      • It's raining so she just grabs it and runs out the door before millie notices.
        • Remember Angela gave hers to Noah, when she did not know she would have to walk... And Millie remembers only her cleptomaniac past, she will not wonder :-)
  • Good spot, I think Angela was leaving someone a message.--MiamiVolts (talk) 19:34, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

Did i miss something?

In Shades of Gray we saw Sylar in Danko's apartment, but in Cold Snap he is gone. Also what is with Danko's shaving, and later on it seems Noah had shaving problems if his own I thought maybe it was just a writing decision,but on Heroes it is usually not that simple.--Sylar Fan09 15:43, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

  • It's suspense of Bryan Fuller ^^--Gabrielense 15:48, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
    • It just hasn't happened yet. I bet we'll see it soon.--Mistyjo 18:08, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
      • I figured that, but it's like they are jumping back and forth in time. Anyway I am so glad Bryan Fullar is making it feel like season one :)--Sylar Fan09 19:45, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
        • Was it Sylar who gave Doyle as a present for Danko? --Denali 12:15, 26 March 2009 (EDT)
          • There was a deleted scene where we see Sylar capture Doyle, but I think officially we don't know who put Doyle up in the window. Really, only one person we know could pull that off though.--Mistyjo 12:20, 26 March 2009 (EDT)


Anyone else got the vibe that for Angela, umbrellas are the new socks? Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 19:26, 24 March 2009 (EDT)

  • That's funny :)I guess she has to be stealing something kind of like Sylar's hunger deal!--Sylar Fan09 19:56, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Maybe stealing things activates her ability ;) --Altes 09:31, 25 March 2009 (EDT)

Commentary for Cold Snap on the Heroes website by Bryan Fuller

He states three things: 1. Tracy isn't dead, she will be back for the next volume. 2. Daphne is dead permanently. 3. In Volume 5 Redemption, Tracy takes on a leadership role and it is because of what Micah said to her.

The blink plus the tear was done to prove she wasn't dead. --Snow Leapord 14:12, 25 March 2009 (EDT)

Ok, she's the fake-out death, but until she's shown to be alive in the show, I think it would be most prudent to list her status as: a) deceased; b) presumed deceased or c) Unknown, kinda like the section for uncertain deaths in the death article.

  • Could Bryan possibly have meant that Ali Larter will be back? I know he said Tracy, but people sometimes mix the two. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:54, 25 March 2009 (EDT)
    • It could be possible that he was refering to Ali Larter herself. Then again Tracy's powers could be just like Bobby Drake's; she can transform herself into organic ice. In the end, we'll just have to wait and see though. -- Bonchilla 08:55, 26 March 2009 (EDT)
      • No, he wouldnt have meant Ali Larter. Else what was said to Tracy by Micah wouldnt be affecting a new character played by her (assuming you are inferring Barbara). --Action Figure 09:41, 26 March 2009 (EDT)
      • No, he meant Tracy because he said that he knew viewers had felt cheated by deaths that weren't real in the past, so the wink was to let you know she wasn't really dead. You know, how winks usually work, to let someone know you're kidding or trying to trick someone. I'm not sure we saw a tear so much as melting. I don't remember him saying she was going to be in the next volume with a redemptive role. I think he said we'll see her before this volume is over and that she'll be super powerful. Guess I'll have to watch that part again. Isn't this talk kinda spoilerish though?--Mistyjo 11:58, 26 March 2009 (EDT)

Bryan Fuller=Heroes King

Ok so after Shades Of Gray i thought Wow nothing could top that until this. One of the greatest episodes ever,I felt it feel like season 1 thanks to good old Bryan Fuller.:) also one of the saddest, I have to admit that i actually cried during this episode. And i only cried in The season 1 finale. Cold Snap = Best Episode Of Season 3 so far.... Gabriel Bishop 13:06, 26 March 2009 (EDT)

  • you mean 3, right?--Anthony Gooch 13:16, 26 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Yep I do lol I think sylar stole my brain :) Gabriel Bishop 13:26, 26 March 2009 (EDT)
      • I'd like to be sylar and steal bryan fuller's brain -- Mike N. 19:19, 28 March 2009 (EDT)
        • Ya know, this brings up one of my pondering questions about Heroes, is Sylar the only special that gets the Hunger...and is a little neurobiology the only satisfaction?...--Anthony Gooch 22:23, 28 March 2009 (EDT)
