For those of you still watching, there's big news about NBC's Heroes: Someone will die!

At least that's what E! Online's Kristin Dos Santos reported:

Sources over on NBC's Heroes confirm to me that a major death is in the works, and this is not one that will go unnoticed by even the most casual fan.

It is huge.

Well ... we've heard this kind of thing before. Haven't all them died at one point or another? Only to be brought back to life? Claire? Sen. Petrelli? HRG? Peter? Matt? Niki/Jessica? She really was killed, but Ali Larter is still in the show as another character?

Who are they kidding?

Dos Santos says that the character facing the big dirt nap is male and is one of the original cast.

We're putting our money on poor Greg Grunberg's Matt Parkman, as much as we like him, as he seems to have less and less to do. That, or Zachary Quinto's Sylar, as Zack's got bigger fish to fry these days (hello, Star Trek 2?).

What do you think? Do you even care?
