When it was announced that NBC's iconic series "Heroes" will be brought back with new characters, storylines and in a way a whole new world, fans of the show were not completely convinced that it was a good idea. But come 24 September, and all misgivings were thrown out the window, because the fans have been more than impressed with the premiere.

Social media is filled with positive feedbacks along the lines of: "I didn't think that Heroes Reborn would compare to the original Heroes. I was right, this new Heroes is even better!"

The trend will hopefully continue in the coming episodes also, starting with episode 3 "Under the Mask", which will be aired on Thursday, 1 October. According to the official synopsis for the coming episode, we will be introduced to a new villain, Erica Kravid (Rya Khilstedt), who, like Luke (Zachary Levi) and Joan (Judi Skekioni), believes that Evos need to be destroyed for the protection of humanity.

Kravid is the leader of the powerful company Renautas, and is probably the one that sent hunters to track down Molly Walker (Francesca Eastwood). Meanwhile, Noah (Jask Bennet) is still trying to regain his memory about the events that happened on 13 June in Odessa. Although Noah has found out that he voluntarily got rid of his memory, how or why he did it, remains a mystery.

Could the mysterious man tailing Tommy (Robbie A. Kay) have anything to do with it? He is after all going around with a suitcase full of coins, getting people to listen to him, and erasing their memories. Is that is the case, he could also help Noah get the memories back.

The said man is only seen trailing Tommy at all times and helping him out in really difficult situations. How is he related to Tommy and why is the young Evo so important to him? Many fans think that he could be someone Tommy's father sent to protect him.

Fans can also hope to see more of Carlos (Ryan Guzman) in "Under the Mask", who will investigate the murder of his brother.

Watch out for season 1 episode 3 of "Heroes Reborn" at 8.00 pm (EST) on Thursday, 1 October. You can also live stream "Under the Mask" via NBC Live!
