Mohinder's future - a grim theory

A few glum thoughts about Mohinder's future on
Heroes
. No spoilers, unless you count Wendi's tweets as such.

The season is
losing steam
getting closer to the finale.

Going by Wendi's tweets, Mohinder is not in the finale. This leads me to the following theory:

If not killed, Mohinder will probably be put in a coma. Otherwise, I can't see him returning to India / not taking part in the final fight. It would be too OOC even for
Heroes
.

It's been a while since they played the coma card. They could make it caused by injury, shock from finding out Sylar is alive, Matt-induced; plenty of options.

And this way, after the cancellation, Kring can say they would have given him a big storyline if there had been S5. If the show miraculously returns for S5, Mohinder will probably stay in coma or die.

I'd love to be wrong. Whatever the outcome, Mohinder will always stay a hero to me.

I agree with your theory. Mohinder's not going to make it to the finale, unless Sendhil has filmed more than Wendi has let on (unlikely), and your coma idea seems more probable than having them kill him off. It's sufficiently open-ended that they could bring him back, if there's another season, but they probably won't.

I'm glum about it, too. He's a great character that they missed too many opportunities with. The squandered potential of this show makes me sad.

NBC has ordered a record-breaking number of new pilots for next season (eighteen, I think). Granted, they have an extra five hours of programming a week that they have to fill due to cancelling Jay Leno's 10 PM show, but even still, it's starting to seem like they're maybe planning on cancelling Heroes as well.

I think next two episodes will somehow resolve Mohinder's storyline
in a deeply unsatisfactory way
. Yes, TPTB killing him off doesn't seem very likely, but who knows...

Eighteen pilots? Wow. This really gives a bad vibe in terms of getting S5.

Oliver Grigsby tweeted that NBC should order new scripts in April if they want to get actual episodes in the fall. I guess we have to wait for 3-4 months to know for sure.
