Season 3 Episode 8


Aired Monday 9:00 PM Nov 10, 2008 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Aside from the title, there is another change of style in this episode: instead of being shown in a separate screen on a black background, the writing "To be continued..." is embedded in a scene, like the episode titles usually are.

    • Title: Villains
      This is the first episode in which the episode title replaces the show title. Instead of the word Heroes, we see Villains in red letters over the usual eclipse logo. Because of this we also do not see the episode number and title within the episode itself as we usually do.

  • Quotes

    • Meredith: You remember what daddy used to say? God gave you a big sister instead of a brain.

    • Mohinder: (voice-over) A child is born to innocence. A child is drawn towards good. Why then do so many among us go so horribly wrong? What makes some walk the path of darkness while others choose the light? Is it will? Is it destiny? Can we ever hope to understand the force that shapes the soul? To fight evil, one must know evil; one must journey back through time and find that fork in the road, where heroes turn one way and villains turn another.

    • (Arthur looks at his soup bowl and realizes that it was poisoned)
      Angela: I lied. It's not your mother's recipe.

    • Thompson: So, you never answered my question. Why do you hate The Company so much?
      Meredith: Because they killed my baby girl. It was 14 years ago. They caught up with me in this little village off the Panhandle. Stormed in at night, it turned into a fire-fight, place went up like kindling. My little girl, Claire, she was killed in the fire.
      Thompson: Claire... That's what they told you, she died in the fire.
      Meredith: What is that supposed to mean?
      Thompson: (pulls out a pocket knife and cuts the plastic band that is binding Meredith's wrists) Go... Go on before I change my mind.
      Meredith: What?
      Thompson: Think of it as a "get out of jail free card" for your little girl.
