Anyone that knows me knows that I'm a sucker for theories and speculating in my fandoms. Not necessarily on spoilers but more of what I'd like to see happen or my predictions from the limited sources given. In this case, it's the recent S3 promo that's been kind of corrupting my fangirlish mind ever since.
First, concerning Mohinder's blatant shirtlessness
This takes me to that part where he's injecting himself with a needle. Knowing nothing of what his storyline is going to be this season, I suspect it has something to do with either his blood or that they're expanding his character involvement where he actually does have an ability and it's just been dormat all this time. Or perhaps he has a strain of the virus that has mutated. Or something.
Now, here's something I know has been on everyone's mind. Mohinder and Maya.
I'm still indifferent about the whole concept but I'm not as worried as I was before, as many had probably already read my initial reaction. I don't dislike Maya, but I'd rather her have a stronger storyline than get stuck in the crappiness that she suffered in S2 which made most people dislike her character. I feel she deserves more than what they've been giving her. And with Mohinder, I'm very protective of his character since he's evolved and developed just fine in the series sans relationships; probably one of the best well-developed character on the show that keeps his main objectives in check, so I'm wary of the idea of him having any kind of love interest in general. Though perhaps it won't be as bad as people are making it out to be; perhaps, with Kring realizing the mistakes of the S2 romances, that he structured this carefully and giving both Mohinder and Maya interesting character developments or self-discoveries, kind of like how Hiro and Charlie were.
Plus, on a shallow sidenote, that kiss in the promo was kinda hot. And I mean, really hot from two gorgeous people. Who knew that Mohinder could kiss like that? And as someone who's seen the majority of screencaps of Sendhil's previous works, I don't think we've seen such a passionate kiss with him in anything. So shirtlessness with added intense kiss = Mohinder's season of YOWZAing us fangirls.
Apparently in the promo there's Nathan and Niki, the two characters presumed "dead" in the finale. This is where people who die on Heroes don't really stay dead. Because they're all Cylons, with Mohinder being the Final Cylon. Duh!
Here are my predictions based from the other scenes in the promo:
Sylar and Claire have a deadly faceoff, which could have resulted from Claire making tunafish sandwiches or eggs. And we all know how Sylar feels about people making breakfast. He starts getting just a wee psychotic.
More Petrelli brother action. Plus Angela being all creepy and sympathetic and kind of badass all at once.
In the alternate future, future!Claire and future!Peter had a thing going on hence the "sorry Peter, I've always loved you" tongue-in-cheek line, unbeknownst to them that they were related, which ends up being a very V.C. Andrews kind of deal between them. Leading future!Claire to become an assassin as turned by Adam Monroe or by the Company and future!Peter turning all badass and cynical. Ah, young love.
And to just be crackalicious with my speculations, Dr. Horrible should make a cameo. That would be mega awesome! Randomly bursting into song, popping up unexpectedly at the worst possible times, like when Sylar is sawing off someone's skull. Can you just imagine? Or any other character bursting into song at the most inappropriate time. I DARE SOMEONE TO WRITE THIS INTO A CROSSOVER FIC ASAP! EPICNESS OF ALL CRACK!STORIES ABOUND!
Yeah. That's all I've got. For now. This season is going to kill me ded even before it premieres, I swear.
Seriously though people, someone really should do a Heroes/Dr. Horrible crossover.
