GUYS!!! The long wait is finally over! Finally we get to see Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia dressed up in black and doing bad things tonight! “What happened to you, Claire? How did you get to this place?” says Peter Petrelli (Milo) in the 3rd season premiere of “Heroes.”

In the three-hour (!!!) long premiere, there is an hourlong chat with the cast followed by two new episodes. The first episode is called “The Second Coming.” Its first scene, already shown in commercials, opens four years in the future with a dark-haired Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere) pointing a gun at Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia). The Chicago Sun-Times wrote,

The existence of the heroes and their powers are no longer secret. Government persecution of those differently abled is alluded to … Peter, who apparently learned nothing from Hiro’s attempts to fix things in both season one (the death of waitress Charlie) and season two (the death of his father), promises to go back in time and fix everything. We find out just how far he’s willing to go in the next shocking scene. That’s when one of the major themes of this season starts to come into focus.
