Our heroes face a new challenge, 'how do extraordinary people lead ordinary lives?'
Heroes returns with its fourth season and a new volume – Redemption. As the dust settles from last season, our heroes attempt to settle back into their ordinary lives. But, as they will quickly discover, it's not easy to go home again. They will face one pressing question: how do extraordinary people lead ordinary lives?
Previously, in "Volume 4: Fugitives," our heroes made an attempt to return to their normal lives – but that attempt was cut short when Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere) uncovered a deadly plot orchestrated by one of their own – Senator Nathan Petrelli (Adrian Pasdar). After revealing to the government that there were people with special abilities, Nathan spearheaded an initiative to capture and imprison those people and used Noah Bennet a.k.a. H.R.G. (Jack Coleman). Lives were torn apart. H.R.G.’s own marriage was destroyed. Tracy Strauss (Ali Larter) was killed -- literally shattered into frozen pieces. Ultimately, it was Nathan who paid the price for his misdeeds – murdered at the hands of Sylar (Zachary Quinto). Angela Petrelli (Cristine Rose), devastated at the loss of her son, and H.R.G., in need of an ally within the government, convinced Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg) to use his ability to repair the damage. Matt used mind control and forced Sylar to shapeshift into Nathan, while erasing Sylar’s own memories so he truly believed he was Nathan.
