Emma tells Peter she meets an unusual man who gives her a cello which, according to Angela, will kill thousands of people.
In the next "Heroes", H.R.G. recruits Matt to help him take down Samuel, as they use his long-lost love, Vanessa (guest star Kate Vernon), to lure him to them, but Samuel has his own plans for Vanessa in the works. Meanwhile, Hiro and Ando go to extreme lengths to save Dr. Suresh.
Elsewhere, Peter's introduction of Emma (guest star Deanne Bray) to his mother brings forth visions of a very grim future. Peter discovers that Samuel has given Emma a cello that has the compass tattoo like the one he has. "Close to You" is slated to air on Monday, January 11.
On another news, it has just been revealed that "Heroes" is the most-pirated show of 2009 despite its low viewership. According to Torrentfreak, "Heroes" was downloaded 6.58 million times last year, meaning more people watched it illegally than legally. Coming second is "Lost" followed by "Prison Break", "Dexter" and "House M.D." in the top 5.
