"Heroes" Spoilers: #2.04 "The Kindness of Strangers"
FOX's post-Katrina drama "K-Ville" keeps on bleeding on Mondays at 9. Hopefully, an upcoming New Orleans-set storyline will not have the same effect on NBC's "Heroes" which airs in the same timeslot. Here's a quick look at next week's episode along with a preview of new characters related to Micah.
Between shifts at a local fast food joint, Monica Dawson (The Nine's 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).
Monica's mother died during Hurricane Katrina and the family has moved back into their once-flooded home, where the grandmother cares for her two grandchildren.
Monica becomes an avenging angel intent on bringing justice to the corruption-plagued Big Easy. Her storyline is expected to run for at least 5-6 episodes of the 2nd season. Meanwhile, their cousin Micah (played by series regular Noah Gray-Cabey) is sent to New Orleans to live with them.
Angela Petrelli (guest star Cristine Rose) makes a shocking confession as new information about the previous generation of Heroes is revealed. Has she committed murder?
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 and he exhibits his powers by picking her up and flying her for a romantic getaway. Meanwhile, her father H.R.G. (Jack Coleman) fears for the future.
