Like something that died, then was injected with the blood of a mutant cheerleader, Heroes is back from its agonizing 9-month hiatus. Almost. Tonight. Tim Kring says he’ll be answering some critical questions this time around. He promises. Kind of …

Have you forgotten what happened at the end of last season, and need a primer before you brave the new season? Then go read my Season 2 finale recap.
Can’t wait till tonight to get your fix for new heroes? Then head on over to the NBC site to watch the series of short webisodes they ran this summer.
