I can't believe we stopped the Heroes Thread after only 162 pages. However I do see why it is better to make smaller threads then one big huge one filled to the max. It saves people from going to far back from getting information on previous episodes and it is an easier serch when there are less pages.
To get back to the topic before we were forwarded here. I am amazed that you guys have issues with Nathan surviving. It will be the HOW that the writers will have to impress us with. All of you should know that they didn't go through most of the season making him Senator for nothing.
However for arguements sake, Only the 9 in the finale (Claire, HRG, Matt, Molly, Micah, Dl, Nikki, Suresh, & Peter)know that he SHOULD be dead so maybe like HDMe2 said they have the a person like the illusionist to be him while the company hunts down the 7 that know the truth.
There aren't any stupid questions just stupid people who prefer to do it themselves and BOOM!
