The stars of Heroes were out in their Springtime best last night to celebrate the show being back on air after a hiatus (and what an exciting episode it was). Noticeably absent from both the show and the party was Hayden's character Claire's BFF, Zach. Apparently he was written off Heroes when his manager had a fit over the character of Zach being gay. Wow, you'd think that the young actor's management would want to do what they could to keep him on the hit series. I'd also like to believe we've come farther than that in the field of typecasting. The show must go on, however, and judging from last night's episode, there's a lot more excitement to come this season!
