The introduction of Kristen Bell to Heroes in Chapter Five, Fight or Flight has many people up in arms. Whilst I loved Kristen in Veronica Mars I find her character Elle Bishop ultra annoying. However her storyline does say a lot about the company (or Bob at least) and the lengths they are willing to go to bag and tag.
Another strange character is Maury Parkman (Matt’s dad). They made such a big deal of him being Molly Walker’s nightmare, I thought he was going to be the season’s big bad. Although he helped to move the plot along it seems he was a red herring. We were made to think he was behind the murders of the founders. Maybe he was after Bob for different reasons, after all he is a loose cannon and it doesn’t seem like he is using his powers for good or that he is willing to go along with the “company’s” agenda.
