    I mean, Isaac painted the obliteration of NY and we all see how that turned out. Maybe his paintings are only of possible futures and can be avoided. I still think it's not Bennett, but just in case it is...the future can always be changed. :woot:

    I hope he doesn't die. I thought he would in season one and was so happy he didn't.

    It's interesting that he doesn't seem to upset about the pictures in the past episode or so - at first he seemed unnerved at seeing it, but lately he seems cool with it, like knows how to avoid it. (or maybe he's just come to accept his fate).

    I wish that Isaac's paintings wouldn't lie. Have they every? I can't remember.

    I think it would put a nice spin on this prophecy business in all the TV shows and such, where, in the end, it's almost always that you can change your destiny.

    If HRG dies, I see it as a jump the shark moment.

    I mean, he painted that HUGE Picture of the NY exploding on his floor and that never happened. It happened in an alternate future, but in the one that came to pass ultimately New York never exploded.

    I don't know if HRG can alter his future, but its something to think about.

    Y'know, I am kinda mixed on it. With the picture of New York exploding, you kind of knew that it had to be stopped. That there was no way it could actually happen. HRG dying though...if it doesn't happen, it will feel kinda like a rip-off. Like, "whats the point of all these paintings if they are never going to come to pass?"

    Very True.

    I hold firm to the belief that its that dude in the picture and not our HRG.

    Yeah, I'm falling into the Mr.Petrelli category.

    I would prefer it to be Dallas also. I'm not convinced that he is dead. I don't want to see HRG go because the last ep really showed how bada$$ he can be with out really turning to the dark side.
    He only killed Ivan for the greater good.

    Yeah, my thoughts exactly. I wish they would end up being the absolute true destinies. I thought Isaac was one of the best characters in the show and this would make him grow into something bigger even if these pictures weren't just the typical might-be that you know that's never going to happen.

    I wish they'd write HRG out before he starts to draw content for the fandom around him. Lots of good characters have been ruined in other shows because the producers just haven't known when to quit.

    Well the spoilers have said that in the coming weeks a non-hero will die at the hands of another non-hero. As far as I know there are only a few non-heroes to choose from, being HRG, Suresh, Kaitlin, and Papa Petrelli (if he is in fact alive). HRG and Suresh both have too important of a role on the show to die IMHO. There have been no paintings or clues to suggest that Kaitlin dies. But since the painting in question has a glaring resemblance to Papa Petrelli, he could be the non-hero to die since it has been stated in the graphic novel that he did not have a special power.

    Are you sure you know what the term "jump the shark means". Killing HRG would suck, but I wouldn't call it jumping the shark in the least.

    When were these spoilers released? It could've been referring to Ivan dying at HRG's hands.

    Yes, I am familiar with the term. It is the point where a show is never as good as it once was and from that point on will be on the downfall. At the same time however, jump the shark moments are different for everyone. That is why I said "for me". The only thing that got me through season 1 was HRG. He is the best character in my opinion and his death in my eyes would mean the show can never be as good as it once was when he was alive.

    It's not just the show getting worse, but it pulling a ridiculous, ratings-grapping stunt to do so, like having Fonzie jump over a shark on water skis.

    Umm, no its not.

    Definition of Jumping the Shark as defined by the creators of the term:

    It is simply the point where it is on the downhill. If HRG dies, the show will never be as enjoyable as it was when he was around. Therefore it will be a jump the shark moment for me.

    On Tuesday, October 30th that Kristin lady from E on-line posted it, plus I remember seeing someone else post it in a different thread. I assumed since it was after Monday's episode that they were not referring to Ivan.

    Agreed. Plus they really don't have enough established non-heroes on the show to kill him off. It's basically him and Suresh. Then again it is the last painting, so this scenario might not happen until episode 20 or so. In which case they could try cramming a new non-hero into the picture, and then kill off HRG, which would suck.

    I just noticed your Avatar, funny stuff. Whenever I watch Spider-Man 1 that bald teacher always cracks me up! "I kid you not". I'm like dude you're teaching high school students chill out. :woot:

    the spoilers have said that in the coming weeks a non-hero will die at the hands of another non-hero, there are 7 painting futures that have yet to come true. That means there's still a lot of time to introduce more new non-heroes to kill off.

    Does anyone else think the painting of Suresh holding a gun takes place moments before the painting of HRG?
