There is a shocking scene being previewed as part of the next week's episode of "Heroes". Revealing a tattoo of Claire on his arm, Sylar demands a help from her but ends up kissing her. Sylar was actually there to get answers to why he isn't quite himself.
Meanwhile, Hiro's life hangs in the balance as his brain tumor worsens, prompting him to subconsciously deal with some of his past decisions. Elsewhere, Samuel's plans to impress his long-lost love, Vanessa (guest star Kate Vernon), take a terrifying turn. "Pass/Fail" is set to air on January 18.
Recently NBC's Head of Entertainment, Angela Bromstad said there is a high chance the show would be renewed for the fifth season despite its struggling viewership. Creator Tim Kring would pitch ideas for the new season in the coming weeks and NBC will give it consideration.
Additionally, Bromstad said there won't be a budget cut. "...actually Heroes has already been very responsible in having a good budget, so I don't think we'd be cutting it," she emphasized.
