SPOILER ALERT: Don’t read this if you haven’t seen Monday’s Heroes. Seriously!

Okay, so it’s already been four days since it aired, but I still can’t stop thinking about the improved but still somewhat irksome mid-season finale of Heroes. Though killing off two long-running heroes—Niki and Nathan—was an interesting way to detour from a path of predictability (seriously, don’t make Maya cry, people!), I was actually more shocked by the characters that remained alive and kicking at episode’s end. Namely, the “M”s: Maya, Mohinder, and Monica (pictured, l. to r.), as well as Molly and Micah. Is it a coincidence that these folks not only share the same first letter of their monikers, but also an ability to annoy and offend even the most devoted viewers with their consistent and utter stupidity?

Really, when the show’s writers reconvene after the strike ends, they ought to consider
a “Moldavian Massacre“-style story arc to wipe out the dreaded M crowd–except, of course, for Matt; spare the mind-reader, save the show!–don’t you think? Or am I just a sadistic person for calling for the deaths of precious pre-teen characters?
