Major thanks to SpoilerTV for this and it was a spoilerific list so you have a choice to read or not…

What’s it called?
“.07%”

Who’s responsible?
Teleplay is credited to one Chuck Kim.

What does TV Guide say?
“Sylar confronts two more on the list; Nathan considers Linderman’s advice as he faces difficult decisions; Thompson (Eric Roberts) hunts for Claire; Hiro renews his vow to save the world.”

The big news?
Mohinder replaced! Another character serves as your humble narrator this week.

The far bigger news?
The cast continues to evolve. Two of the title characters, characters we met in the very first episode, meet violent deaths this week at Sylar’s hand.

Are either of the two murdered heroes Claire?
No.

What else is TV Guide not telling us?
We learn a lot more about Angela Petrelli, and that Nathan and Peter’s father was in the loop on some important stuff! We get some major chunks of Linderman’s backstory (and, really, the backstory of the Heroesverse), and see Linderman’s superpower demonstrated. And we discover that Nathan’s knowledge of art is not limited to the work of Isaac Mendez.

Do we get a lot of Linderman this week?
We do! He will remind “Strangelove” fans of Buck Turgidson, he will remind “Watchmen” fans of Adrian Viedt, he will remind “Carnivale” fans of Ben Hawkins, and he will remind “Clockwork Orange” fans of Alex DeLarge.

Why “.07%”?
That’s the amount of the world’s population that’s destroyed when Manhattan goes boom.

What does Linderman say to Nathan?
Nathan learns that Peter will not be the only Petrelli brother to play a pivotal role in the fate of the world. Linderman offers one of Isaac’s paintings as evidence.

How goes Thompson’s hunt for Claire?
Poorly, at first. But it looks like Micah might prove key to her recovery.

How go Hiro’s adventures in the future?
Hiro and Ando appear only at episode’s end. Hiro is confronted by a face from his past – and a face from his future.

Is Claire a brunette now?
No. Dark Claire, the one we’ve seen in the promos, doesn’t turn up this week. We must expect to meet Dark Claire … in the future!

What’s doing with Bennet?
PrimaTech has him locked up, along with Matt Parkman and Ted Sprague (who looks a good deal less like the Geico cavemen now that somebody’s trimmed his Kaczynski-esque facial hair). “You’re on death row,” Thompson tells Bennet.

Any sign of Hiro’s pop or Mr. Invisible?
They are as absent as Audrey Hanson, Janet Parkman, Heidi Petrelli, Meredith Gordon, Zach and the Haitian.

What’s great?
Thompson handling things at PrimaTech. The painting of Nathan. Parkman’s race with time. Sylar, chilling as ever. Claire’s conversation with grandma generally and “like I once did” in particular. Our glimpse of the latest issue of Isaac’s comic. Isaac’s sketchbook, which may or may not be an homage to Rorschach’s diary. The miniskirt and boots on shapechanging Candice Wilmer. James Kyson Lee’s reading of “I’m confused.” “You turned into your old man.” “I knew long before either of you did.” “He’s no longer with the company.” “Ended bad!”

What’s not so great?
Major spoilers lurk in invisotext. The audience knows entirely too much to ever believe Peter will stay dead. Maybe somebody should have crafted a subplot about a speedy cremation?

How does it end, spoiler-boy?
“Me?” asks Hiro.

Herc’s rating for Heroes 1.17?

****1/2

9 p.m. Monday. NBC.
