With three episodes behind us now, "Heroes" is really starting to heat up. In last week's episode, "Kindred," we learned that Kensei can be the man Hiro expects him to be, we finally found out what's happened with Niki, Micah and D.L. (poor D.L.), Maya and Alejandro's long journey to the States continues to get darker, Mohinder finds a painting by Isaac that foretells the death of HRG, Peter makes a cash grab, Nichelle Nichols is introduced and, naturally, that's not quite all. A little recap just doesn't do these episodes justice.
In Monday's episode titled "The Kindness of Strangers," we'll be introduced to our latest hero, Monica Dawson, played by actress Dana Davis. Here's the network description for the episode:
AS SECRETS ABOUT THE PREVIOUS GENERATION OF HEROES ARE REVEALED, A NEW HERO EMERGES IN POST-KATRINA NEW ORLEANS -- Between shifts at a local fast food joint, Monica Dawson (Dana Davis) begins to exhibit some unexpected new abilities unbeknownst to her brother Damon (guest star Carlon Jeffery), grandmother Nana (guest star Nichelle Nichols), and cousin Michah (Noah Gray-Cabey). Angela Petrelli (guest star Cristine Rose) makes a shocking confession as new information about the previous generation of Heroes is revealed. With Molly's (guest star Adair Tishler) "boogyman" continuing to turn her dreams into nightmares, Matt (Greg Grunberg) asks her to put aside her fears and locate him on a map -- with terrible results. Suspecting Claire (Hayden Panettiere) has a new boyfriend, H.R.G. (Jack Coleman) fears for the future. As they get closer to the U.S., Maya (Dania Ramirez) and Alejandro (Shalim Ortiz) make a grim discovery on the road. David Anders, James Kyson Lee, Masi Oka, Adrian Pasdar, Zachary Quinto, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Milo Ventimiglia also star.
