“Heroes” debuts Claire’s lesbian love interest at Comic-Con

In a case of life imitating art, reports of the Heroes lesbian storyline have shifted and morphed more times than Sylar. Initially it was announced that Rachel Melvin of Days of Our Lives would play Claire’s love interest in Season 4, but over the weekend, it was revealed that Madeline Zima would play Gretchen, Claire’s college roommate and fling. Zima’s last role was Mia Cross, the jailbait vixen who seduces David Duchovny‘s character Hank Moody in Californication.

An extended Season 4 teaser trailer debuted at Comic-Con this past weekend, and although it hasn’t been released as of the time of publication of this post, here is an amateur video of the trailer. (Want to see the Claire/Gretchen kissing scene? Don’t blink at 4:47.)

OK, you were probably distracted by Ali Larter‘s naked shoulders and back right before the kiss, so I made a screenshot.

Hooking up with your roommate isn’t the brightest of moves, but then again, neither is attempting to hijack a plane to save your buddies.

Are you looking forward to Claire’s storyline this season, or are you even more psyched that Ali Larter’s character Tracy Strauss survived Denko’s attack and will return to kill a lot of people while wearing very little?
