Has anyone else here thought about the fact that Hiro still thinks Nathan's a villain?
He left before Nathan showed up to fly Peter into the sky and the last confrontations they had he'd shown to be a villain to Hiro.
Oh of my favorite Hiro moments was when he realised Nathan wasn't so good as he got into the car to leave and Hiro was like "your villain"!
Thou it was sad at the same time to see Hiro lose all this faith he had misplaced in Nathan.
None of them sparkle!

Heh, didn't think of that, that Hiro labeled Nathan with a word that Nathan taught him. Parallels! Hiro probably liked Nathan because he thought that Nathan, as a person of power and import, could do something to help the world. He eventually did, but Hiro hasn't seen it.
My only concern with Hiro's current plot is that he doesn't know whether or not the bomb has gone off. Apparently meeting Takezo Kensei and fixing the timeline is more important than saving the future of the world he actually knows.
Unless...he was always supposed to go back in time and that's what brought forth everything as has already happened, i.e. it was his destiny. Hence why we haven't seen any of the ripples of his actions. Time travel is always so damn complex.
Unless the present we are being presented is just a part of a paradoxical time loop. Hiro goes back to Japan, causing history and the present to be what we already know. A young Hiro grows up, events happen this time around as has already happened before in another circle of the loop, he goes on to stab Sylar in the same manner as it already went down and gets himself sent back in time to Feudal Japan...creating the time line we know and love, over and over, and over.
Hiro is by far my favourite character. Despite the fact that he's the most potentially powerful character, excluding Peter of course, he's so optimistic and naive. That said, future Hiro as a badass was cool too!
