HEROES: "AN INVISIBLE THREAD"

Two cast members of Heroes say that "An Invisible Thread," Monday's season finale on NBC, will be shocking for viewers.

"This is one of the most shocking season finales we've ever had," said Greg Grunberg, who plays Matt Parkman. "Somebody dies, and it's a final death. It is the end of that character, unlike some of these others. We don't time travel any more on the show, so that person isn't coming back in flashback.

"And it's unexpected. People are going to be shocked."

"Someone seriously dies," said Zachary Quinto, who plays Sylar. "For reals. No foolin'. Dead is dead ... in a matter of speaking. It's going to be a shocker."

The Continuum presents seven video clips in conjunction with the episode, including more comments from cast members.

IDW PUBLISHING ANNOUNCES ANGEL PLANS

IDW Publishing has unveiled its upcoming Angel plans, beginning in July.

Angel: After the Fall writer Brian Lynch will be back with the Angel series staring in July, bringing with him some familiar faces. In Angel #23, the Angel: After the Fall/Spike: After the Fall team of Lynch and artist Franco Urru reunite to explore the fate of Gunn.

Angel #24 and #25 feature the long-awaited return of Drusilla to the Angel universe. Actress Juliet Landau, who played Drusilla, is plotting and co-scripting this two-part story.

"We are very excited to have Brian back on Angel, and the stories hešs telling here really set the tone for whatšs to come," said IDW publisher and editor-in-chief Chris Ryall. "Not only do we see Gunn dealing with the repercussions of his actions in After the Fall, but we also finally get to check in on the intriguing and very insane Drusilla. And having Juliet Landau craft Drusilla's story in such a clever way is an even bigger bonus for fans, since she has a true understanding of the character and what motivates her."

When Gunn was lase seen, his return from Hell left him comatose with only Illyria to look over him. Angel #23 explores what happens next, plus brings back a renowned character as the villain of the issue in an unexpected twist. Landau and Lynch will co-script Angel #24 and #25, with Urru once again handling art and cover chores. British artist Sam Shearon will also provide a cover for the issue. A new pictorial of Landau will be included as a back-up feature in the issue.

"I am loving co-writing these issues with Brian. Tapping into Dru again has been incredibly creative and fun! The process has been fluid and I am excited by the work that we are doing," Landaus said.

"There is a lot going on with Angel starting in July," Ryall said. "And of course, Išd be remiss if I didnšt mention that all of this just sets us up for even bigger things to come. But wešll have more on that later, like maybe at Comic-Con."
