Jackie et ses cheerleaders arrivent sur les gradins du lycée. Claire est avec Zach, et elle est dévisagée par les autres filles de l’équipe. Le principal passe devant eux avec le nom de la reine de la soirée du Homecoming. Zach insiste pour que Claire aille voir qui a gagné. Elle passe devant Brody, qui est en fauteuil roulant, les bras dans le plâtre. Jackie vient la voir et se moque d’elle. Elle la traite de pariât, et lui dit qu’elle ne sera jamais élue reine de la soirée car elle fait hospitaliser le meilleur joueur de leur équipe (en parlant de Brody). Claire réplique en disant qu’elle ne se fait pas d’illusion puisque c’est un concours de popularité, et que de toute évidence Jackie a fait en sorte qu’elle ne soit plus populaire. Mais contre toute attente, et à la plus grande surprise de Claire, c’est elle qui gagne. Derrière elle, dans les gradins, les élèves applaudissent, et Zach est parmi eux.

 

Nathan et Simone sont dans l’appartement d’Isaac. Nathan ouvre une boite en bois, contenant le tableau que Peter lui avait demandé de racheter à Linderman. De toute évidence, Simone est au courant de son petit secret, et elle n’a rien dit à Peter. On ne voit pas la peinture, mais elle est censée représenter Peter, à la soirée de Homecoming de Claire. Simone lui explique que le tableau provient d’une série peinte par Isaac Mendez, et que Peter croit que cet homme peut peindre le futur, et que s’il parvient à sauver la cheerleader, il sauvera le monde. Nathan prend alors un pot de peinture noire, qu’il lance sur le tableau. Simone n’apprécie pas son geste, et il se moque gentiment d’elle en lui demandant si elle croit vraiment à toutes ses histoires de « Sauve la cheerleader, sauve le monde ». Elle répond qu’elle ne sait plus ce qu’elle doit croire. Nathan s’en va.

 

Jessica est quelque part au Nevada, dans le désert. Elle s’entraîne à tirer avec des armes militaires. Un homme est avec elle, il semble être celui qui lui vend ses armes. Elle se regarde dans un miroir, et on peut voir que son reflet est en fait Niki.

 

DL et Micah sont dans l’Utah. Ils s’arrêtent pour prendre à manger. Micah continu de faire la tête à son père, mais il répond qu’il l’aime toujours, et que s’ils ne peuvent pas faire demi-tour c’est parce qu’ils ne sont pas en sécurité avec elle. DL sort de la voiture. Une voiture de police se gare juste à coté de lui, donc il fait marche arrière. Quand il regarde à nouveau dans la voiture, Micah a disparu.

 

Mohinder est avec son ami, Nirad, en Indes, sur un marché. Il lui a raconté son rêve à propos de sa sœur, et du petit garçon, Iyer. D’après le dossier retrouvé dans le tiroir du bureau, Iyer est capable de s’immiscer dans les rêves des gens. Nirad  ne le croit pas, mais Mohinder veut quand même chercher le garçon.

 

Peter arrive à l’appartement d’Isaac, après que Simone l’ait appelé. Elle lui avoue que Nathan a racheté la peinture à Linderman, et elle la lui montre. Elle lui demande s’il y croit vraiment, à « sauver la cheerleader, sauver le monde ». Il réussit à la convaincre de l’aider, et elle lui montre une photographie du tableau, avant que Nathan ne jette la peinture dessus. On peut y voir Peter allongé sur le sol, devant l’entrée du lycée de Claire, de toute évidence mort, et une horloge indiquant 20h12. Elle lui demande de ne pas y aller, mais il répond qu’il le doit. Elle ajoute que la soirée du Homecoming est le soir même, qu’elle a prit la liberté de les appeler. Peter la prend dans ses bras pour la remercier. Ils s’embrassent et Peter part.

 

Ando attend toujours le retour de Hiro dans le fast food. Son téléphone sonne, c’est Peter. Il lui dit que lui et Hiro doivent se rendre à Odessa, dans le Texas, le plus rapidement possible, car c’est là que se trouve la cheerleader. Ando lui dit qu’il est déjà au Texas. Peter lui dit qu’il arrive les rejoindre et il raccroche.

 

Isaac a terminé le tableau demandé par Mr Bennet, mais il n’apprend rien de précis au sujet de Sylar. Mr Bennet n’est pas satisfait, mais Isaac n’est pas très bien en point, et Eden s’occupe de lui. Il demande à la jeune femme de forcer Isaac d’en peindre un autre quand il se réveillera, mais elle refuse. Il lui montre alors les photos des victimes de Sylar, mais Eden continu de penser qu’Isaac n’était pas la solution. Mr Bennet lui demande alors de se rendre au lycée de Claire, et d’attendre Sylar pour le neutraliser le moment venu.

 

Au lycée, tout le monde félicite Claire, même ceux qu’elle ne connaît pas. Zach se moque d’elle en lui faisant remarquer que ce n’est pas un concours de popularité, mais d’impopularité, car tous les lycéens qui ne sont pas populaires ont voté pour elle, et ils sont plus nombreux que les élèves populaires. Claire comprend alors que Zach a fait en sorte qu’on vote pour elle, et il répond simplement qu’il a fait ça parce que c’était important pour elle. Il lui montre ensuite une copie du livre de Chandra Suresh, dont un chapitre porte sur la régénération des tissus. Jackie arrive alors et les interrompt. Elle se moque très méchamment de Zach, alors Claire lui donne un coup de poing, et Jackie s’effondre sur le sol.

 

Claire est rentrée chez elle, et elle est avec ses parents. Son père la punie et lui interdit de sortir pour la soirée. Même Mme Bennet trouve cela injuste, mais Mr Bennet ne cède pas, et Claire est très en colère contre lui.

 

Micah attend à un arrête de bus, mais son père le retrouve. Il lui crie dessus et lui demande s’il se rend compte de la peur qu’il a eu, et Micah rétorque que maintenant il sait ce qu’ils ont ressentit lorsqu’il les a abandonné. Micah dit à son père que Niki a beaucoup changé quand il est parti, et il finit par lui révéler l’existence de Jessica. DL est alors d’accord pour retourner voir sa femme.

 

Mohinder montre la photo de Iyer aux passants dans la rue. Nirad se plaint qu’ils perdent leur temps. Un homme lui dit alors qu’il connaît le garçon, et il leur montre qu’il est entrain de jouer au foot dans la rue un peu plus loin. Mohinder va lui parler. Iyer lui dit qu’il ne va pas voir les personnes dans leurs rêves, que c’est aux qui viennent le voir lorsqu’ils ont des questions sans réponse. Mohinder lui demande alors quel chemin il doit prendre pour suivre sa destinée, et Iyer lui répond qu’il connaît déjà la réponse. Et il s’en va.

 

Une serveuse vient remplir la tasse de Ando. Il n’y a plus de sucre dans la sucrière, donc il se lève en chercher, et en passant devant le mur où sont accrochées les photos de Charlie, il remarque la présence de Hiro sur celle prise il y a six moins pour l’anniversaire de la jeune femme. Il va voir la serveuse et lui demande si elle connaît Hiro. Elle répond que oui, mais qu’elle n’a pas de nouvelles de lui depuis quelques semaines.

 

Claire est dans sa chambre. Son téléphone sonne. C’est Zach qui lui écrit qu’il est entrain de lancer des cailloux à sa fenêtre. Elle va ouvrir, et le garçon entre. Il lui dit qu’il l’emmène à la soirée, même si elle est punie. Elle lui dit alors qu’il sera son cavalier pour la soirée. Mais il n’a pas l’air très emballé. Elle lui dit alors qu’elle vient enfin de comprendre qui sont ses vrais amis, et qu’être différente n’est pas la fin du monde.

 

Peter arrive au restaurant où Ando attend. Ils font connaissance, et Ando lui raconte ce qui est arrivé à Hiro. Peter lui dit qu’il sait où et quand la cheerleader se fera attaquer, et qu’il doit l’arrêter. Ando lui demande si lui aussi a un pouvoir comme Hiro, et il répond que lui tout seul, il ne peut pas faire grand-chose, car il absorbe le pouvoir des autres. Ando répond que sans Hiro, il n’est pas grand-chose non plus. Peter sans va, car il lui reste moins d’une heure.

 

Mr Bennet s’est aperçu que Claire n’était plus dans sa chambre, et sa femme lui avoue qu’elle a vu Zach et Claire partir dix minutes auparavant, en sortant par la fenêtre. Il s’énerve contre sa femme, et s’en va au lycée.

 

Mohinder est devant son ordinateur. Nirad arrive devant lui, et lui dit que le garçon n’est pas la solution. Mais ils ont déjà eu cette conversation. Iyer apparaît alors devant la porte du bureau. Mohinder le suit, et il se retrouve dans la rue. Il voit alors son père discuter avec Nirad au sujet du garçon (Iyer) que Chandra recherche, ainsi que de ses théories. Puis ils parlent de Shanti. Mohinder se rend compte alors qu’il a eu les mêmes conversations avec Nirad que son père avant lui. Il est ensuite projeté dans un autre de ses souvenirs. Il est dans le bureau de son père. Le Mohinder de ce souvenir entre dans la pièce et félicite son père sur le manuscrit du livre qu’il vient d’écrire, mais Chandra s’énerve contre lui et lui dit qu’il n’a pas à se mêler de ses affaires. Mohinder voudrait participer aux recherches de son père, mais il refuse catégoriquement. Iyer apparaît devant la porte, et dit à Mohinder qu’il a la réponse à sa question. Mohinder se réveille. Il regarde une photo de lui et de son père. Il vient de comprendre que son père essayait juste de le protéger lorsqu’il l’a pratiquement exclu de sa vie. Sur son ordinateur, il décide de ne pas quitter le programme, et une demande de mot de passe apparaît. Il essaye plusieurs mots, mais rien ne se passe. Puis il tape Shanti, et là, la liste des personnes à travers le monde ayant un pouvoir se met à défiler.

 

Peter est au lycée de Claire. Il regarde une vitrine dans laquelle se trouve des photos et des articles relatant le sauvetage de l’homme dans l’accident de train par Jackie. Il se retourne, et bouscule Claire qui passait à ce moment. Il lui demande si elle connaît Jackie. Elle répond que oui, qu’elle est cheerleader. Puis Claire ajoute que Jackie n’est pas vraiment spéciale, que c’est juste une adolescente. Mais Peter lui dit que sauver la vie d’un homme ce n’est pas banale. Ils discutent puis Claire sourit et s’en va. Peter sort et se retrouve devant l’entrée du lycée, à l’endroit où il est censé mourir. Il n’y a personne.

 

L’homme avec une montre, la même que celui qui a tué Chandra et Charlie, se trouve devant la vitrine que regardait Peter quelque instant plus tôt. On suppose que c’est Sylar.

 

Les cheerleader sont dans leur vestiaire, elles se préparent pour le début du match. Jackie leur dit qu’il est temps de partir. Elle va voir Claire. Leur conversation est plutôt tendue. Jackie demande à Claire ce qu’elle fait là car elle est punie, et Claire rétorque en lui demandant comment va son œil. Les autres filles sortent du vestiaire. Jackie demande à Claire pourquoi elles ne sont plus amies comme avant, et elle répond qu’elle a changé de perspective, qu’elle ne veut pas être comme elle, mais que c’est plutôt Jackie qui est jalouse d’elle. Elle ajoute que c’est elle qui a sauvé l’homme du train, et non pas Jackie comme tout le monde le croit. Elle lui dit aussi qu’elle s’est filmée. Jackie est contrariée, elle claque la porte de son casier, et s’apprête à partir quand les lumières du vestiaire se coupent. On voit l’ombre de quelqu’un passer derrière elle.

 

Mr Bennet est arrivé au lycée. Il est devant les gradins qu’il a déjà vu sur l’une des peintures de Isaac.

 

Peter attend toujours devant l’entrée.

 

Claire suit Jackie, elle a entendu du bruit. Elle essaye de retenir Jackie car quelque chose ne va pas. Jackie continue de lui crier dessus, et aucune des deux filles ne voit l’ombre grandir derrière elle, jusqu’à ce que l’homme attrape Jackie. Il la plaque contre l’un des casiers, et Claire tente de s’interposer, mais l’homme la jette contre le mur, avec une force incroyable. Jackie hurle. Mr Bennet et Peter l’entendent et se précipitent à l’intérieur. Claire est allongée par terre, elle ne bouge plus et perd du sang. Elle ouvre alors les yeux, et voit l’homme pointer son doigt vers le visage de Jackie. Le front de la jeune fille s’ouvre alors et du sang coule le long de son visage. Jackie continue de se débattre, mais elle est entrain de mourir. Claire remet les os de son bras en place et se relève sans bruit. Elle a le visage déformé, mais il redevient normal très rapidement, et l’homme comprend qu’il s’est trompé de fille. Il lâche Jackie, qui dit à Claire de courir avant de s’effondrer sur le sol. Claire sort en courant et bouscule encore Peter. Il la regarde bizarrement car elle est toute tâchée de sang. Puis Sylar surgit derrière eux, et ils partent en courant. Peter s’arrête pour faire face à l’homme, mais il lui projette des portes de casiers, alors Peter s’enfuit.

 

Mr Bennet arrive dans le vestiaire et découvre Jackie étendue dans son sang.

 

Claire continue de courir. Elle arrive dans les gradins, et on voit la même scène que sur la peinture d’Isaac. Peter est juste derrière elle, ainsi que Sylar. Peter lui dit de partir chercher de l’aide. Elle s’en va. Sylar s’approche de Peter, l’attrape, et les deux hommes font une chute du haut des gradins et tombent devant l’entrée du lycée. L’horloge affiche 20H12. Il y a une flaque de sang sous la terre de Peter, et Sylar est allongé à coté de lui.

 

Claire sort du lycée, et découvre Peter allongé et inconscient. Ses jambes forment un angle bizarre. Quand elle s’approche de lui, il se réveille, et remet ses os en place. La coupure sur son visage se referme presque entièrement elle aussi. Claire n’en croit pas ses yeux. Sylar a disparut. Il lui dit d’aller prévenir la police, et avant de partir elle lui demande son nom. Il lui dit qu’il s’appelle Peter, et elle répond qu’elle c’est Claire. Il lui demande si elle est la bonne, si en la sauvant il a sauvé le monde, mais elle ne peut pas répondre et elle s’en va. Elle voit alors son père en s’approchant du terrain où tout le monde est réunit pour voir le match. Il la prend dans ses bras. Elle veut retourner auprès de Jackie et de Peter, mais son père lui assure que la police va s’occuper de tout. Elle lui dit qu’elle a quelque chose à lui apprendre à propos d’elle.

 

Sylar est parti du lycée, il semble un peu mal en point. Il marche dans une forêt, quand il voit une jeune femme qui attend devant lui. C’est Eden. Il lève son bras dans sa direction, mais elle lui dit qu’il ne veut pas lui faire de mal. Elle semble avoir le pouvoir de contrôler l’esprit des gens en leur parlant seulement. Elle lui dit de s’endormir, et Sylar tombe inconscient. L’associé de Mr Bennet apparaît alors derrière lui et il fait un signe de tête à Eden.

 

La police est arrivée au lycée. Ils arrêtent Peter.

 

Mohinder regarde la mer devant lui. Sa mère arrive et lui répète que Mira lui a dit qu’il refusait le poste à l’université. Elle lui demande si ça veut dire qu’il retourne à New York. Il ne répond pas et lui demande en retour pourquoi son père ne lui avait rien dit sur ces découvertes. Il annonce à sa mère qu’il doit retourner là-bas pour les retrouver et les avertir du danger qui les menace. Sa mère lui demande alors qui va le protéger lui.

 

DL et Micah sont de retour à leur voiture. DL a accepté de retourner voir Niki, et il dit à Micah qu’ils rentrent à Vegas. Son fils lui avoue alors qu’ils n’ont pas besoins d’y aller car il a appelé sa mère pour lui dire où ils étaient. DL semble soudain inquiet et il ordonne à Micah de monter dans la voiture. Alors qu’il s’apprête à monter à son tour dans la voiture, on voit Jessica regarder à travers un viseur. Elle tire et on entend le coup de feu.

 

La serveuse vient remplir à nouveau la tasse d’Ando, qui attend toujours le retour de son ami dans le restaurant. L’instant d’après on voit Hiro, six moins dans le passé, et Charlie entrain de lui remplir sa tasse. Il lui dit qu’il s’appelle Hiro Nakamura, et qu’il est là pour lui sauver la vie. L’agent de police, l’ami de Charlie, appelle alors la jeune femme pour qu’elle souffle ses bougies d’anniversaire.

[EXT. (TEXAS) UNION WELLS HIGH SCHOOL – PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER -- AMPHITHEATRE -- DAY]

(The group of cheerleaders led by Jackie Wilcox exits the building and struts out across the concrete.)



[EPISODE]
      CHAPTER NINE
      "HOMECOMING"



(They reach the concrete steps where a number of kids have gathered.)

(Other kids – rockers and Goths, Nerds and Geeks, various cliques – sit on the concrete steps as well. Camera pans over the other students there.)

MOHINDER: (v.o.) We are, if anything, creatures of habit ... drawn to the safety and comfort of the familiar.

(Claire and Zach walk out of the building. They’re each carrying their own lunch tray.)

CAPTION:
      CLAIRE BENNET
      ODESSA, TEXAS

ZACH: So do they actually believe that pudding is a vegetable?

(Claire glances over at the group of cheerleaders sitting together and instead, she veers off to find other seats with Zach.)

MOHINDER: (v.o.) But what happens when the familiar becomes unsafe?

(The cheerleaders glare at her and whisper to each other as Claire walks past.)

MOHINDER: (v.o.) When the fear that we have been desperately trying to avoid finds us where we live?

(Claire and Zach climb up more steps.)

ZACH: Something wrong?

CLAIRE: Jackie just killed my appetite.

(They sit down. Claire sighs.)

(Zach looks up and sees Principal Marks and two other faculty exit the building and walk across the front.)

ZACH: Oh, look, the principal's gonna post the homecoming queen announcement.

CLAIRE: Whoopee.

ZACH: Well, aren't you gonna go see if you won?

CLAIRE: What's the point?

ZACH: You're a finalist, Claire. Go.

(The group of cheerleaders stand up and head over to see the results being posted. Jackie stands up and smoothes down her skirt, lagging behind the others.)

(Claire looks at Zach, rolls her eyes and gets up.  She'll check it out if anything just to humor him.)

(Cut to: Brody Mitchum, the football player in his #8 jersey, sits in a wheelchair and stares out blankly in front of him. Some of the football players get up and head down to check the posting.)

(Claire heads down the steps.)

ZACH: (calls out) Good luck.

(Claire glances back and smiles. Jackie walks alongside Claire.)

JACKIE: Kinda nervy for someone in your position to be running for homecoming queen.

CLAIRE: My position?

JACKIE: You know. Pariah? You hospitalized the MVP, annihilating any hope of us actually winning the game.

(Jackie laughs.)

JACKIE: You're not deluded enough to think you're actually gonna win?

CLAIRE: No delusions. It's a popularity contest, and you've made it very clear that I am no longer popular.

JACKIE: It's more than a popularity contest. Being selected homecoming queen is about serving your school. God, Claire. I didn't think you were that shallow.

(The group of cheerleaders and football players gather around the principal who is posting the results.)

PRINCIPAL MARKS: Congratulations, ladies. Make me proud.

(The principal steps away. Cheerleader 1 looks at the list, turns and looks at Jackie.   She blocks our view of the list.)

CHEERLEADER 1: Oh, my God, don't spaz out.

JACKIE: What?

(Jackie steps up to the list and reads the results:

      UNION WELLS HIGH SCHOOL
      HOMECOMING QUEEN
            CLAIRE BENNET
      AND HER COURT
            DARLENE PRICE
            TAMARA GREEER
            BETHANY WHEELOCK
            CYNTHIA ACOSTA
            JODY KIDD

(Jackie turns and looks at Claire.)

JACKIE: I can't believe it.

CLAIRE: (shocked) I won?

(Behind them, up on the high seats, the other students – non-cheerleaders and non-Jocks  – have gathered. They clap and cheer for Claire, Zack leading them.)

STUDENTS: Claire! Claire! Claire! Claire! Go Claire! (Woo)
STUDENTS: Claire! Claire! Go Claire! (Woo)

(Claire turns around to see the students there supporting her. Claire smiles. Jackie is royally annoyed.)

JACKIE: Shut up, you freaks!

(She pushes her way past Claire to the front as Claire glances at her annoyed.  The chanting continues.)

STUDENTS: Claire! Claire! Claire! Yeah!

(Claire looks at them and smiles.)

[INT. (NEW YORK) ISAAC MENDEZ’ LOFT – DAY]

(Nathan uses a crowbar and forces the shipping crate open. Simone watches.)

NATHAN: You didn't tell Peter about me buying this painting, did you?

SIMONE: You asked me not to.

CAPTION:
      SIMONE DEVEAUX & NATHAN PETRELLI
      NEW YORK CITY

(OFF NATHAN & SIMONE: Nathan looks at the painting and shakes his head. The painting is still in the crate.)

NATHAN: I don't get it. What is it?

SIMONE: It's one of a series, the work of Isaac Mendez, a rising artist. Peter believes Isaac can paint the future.

(Nathan motions to the painting.)

NATHAN: Is it supposed to be Peter?

SIMONE: I'm not sure.

(Nathan grabs the painting, takes the painting out of the crate, and carries it, the back of the painting facing the camera. Simone follows him.)

SIMONE: But Peter thinks he needs to be there to save a cheerleader.

(Nathan places the painting on an empty easel.)

NATHAN: Union Wells High School.

(He steps back and crosses his arms over his chest as he continues to study the painting.)

SIMONE: Yeah. Peter thinks if he saves a cheerleader ... he'll save the world.

NATHAN: Right. Is that the only copy?

SIMONE: Yeah. Why?

(Nathan frowns with grim determination and steps away from both Simone and the painting. He heads over to the back worktable.)

NATHAN: Peter's got all these ... ideas in his head.

(Simone turns and looks at Nathan who puts on some latex gloves.)

NATHAN: Delusions of grandeur. He thinks he's supposed to make a difference.

(Nathan picks up a screwdriver and opens the can of paint on the worktable.)

SIMONE: What are you doing?

(Nathan picks up the can of paint, turns and heads back to the painting.)

SIMONE: No. What are you doing? No! No!

(Too late. Nathan tosses the black paint on the painting completely blotting it out.)

SIMONE: No!

NATHAN: Saving his life. What? You believe it? Save the cheerleader, save the world?

(He removes the gloves.)

SIMONE: I'm not sure what to believe anymore.

NATHAN: I am.

(With one last look at the painting, Nathan turns and grabs his jacket. He heads out.)

      JESSICA SANDERS
      SOMEWHERE IN THE NEVADA DESERT

(She cycles the rifle chamber and continues to fire. There’s a man standing just behind her watching her. Jessica fires the last shot.)

GUN SELLER: Nice!

JESSICA: What's the range on this?

GUN SELLER: The Kinsella 320Z, been known to pierce body armor at 400 yards. Military grade.

JESSICA: That'll work.

(Finished, Jessica picks up the rifle and folds the brace feet back along the barrel.)

GUN SELLER: Don't want to see his eyes, huh? Must really hate the guy.

(She starts walking back toward the van.)

JESSICA: You have no idea. He took my son.

GUN SELLER: Damn. You call the cops?

JESSICA: Cops can't stop him. But I can, as long as he doesn't see it coming.

(Jessica laughs lightly.)

JESSICA: How much?

GUN SELLER: Two large.

(She digs into her back pocket, pulls out a roll of bills and tosses it to the gun seller. The gun seller takes the bills and turns to do his own thing. Jessica turns and looks into the van’s side-view mirror.)

(Niki turns around and looks back at her.)

JESSICA: We're going hunting.

MICAH: Till you turn around.

(He parks the car.)

D.L.: I told you, we can't go back!

MICAH: And I told you Mom needs me.

D.L.: It's not safe with her.

(DL releases his seatbelt.)

D.L.: Look ... I still love her. No matter what she does, a part of me always will. But your mom has changed. The good news is that it's gonna be you and me from here on out. Partners.

MICAH: You mean, like Batman and Robin?

D.L.: Yeah. Like Batman and Robin.

(He reaches into the back seat and takes out a cap. He puts it on his head.)

D.L.: Only ... I ain't wearing no tights. You could wear tights. I'm not wearing tights. Need to hit the head?

(DL opens the car door to get out.)

MICAH: Nah, I'm good.

(DL leaves the car and heads over to the cafe. A cop car turns into the parking lot in front of him and parks.)

(DL casually veers off toward the newspaper dispenser and picks up a paper as the officers get out of their car. The officers head into the cafe. DL plays it cool. He stays where he is, reading the newspaper. The door closes behind the officers. DL places the newspaper on the dispenser and moves.)

      CHENNAI, INDIA

(Mohinder and Nirand walk through the road. Vendors line the side.)

NIRAND: Did you ever consider that these dreams that you've been having, are just that, dreams?

MOHINDER: It's impossible. They were talking about my sister Shanti, a sister I never knew I had!

NIRAND: As children, we absorb powerful archetypes that we bury in our subconscious. Your parents were obviously still grieving over your sister. Freud would tell you the same thing.

MOHINDER: What about the boy?

NIRAND: The one with the soccer ball?

(Mohinder shows Nirand the file folder.)

MOHINDER: Yes, how do you explain his picture being hidden in my father's desk, huh? He was one of them, right here in Chennai. Sanjog Iyer, my father identified the genetic marker. It says the boy can enter your dreams, alter your perceptions, uh, a kind of spirit guide.

NIRAND: You must have seen that file before.

MOHINDER: I have never seen this file before, and I have had thousands of dreams in my life. These were different, they were--they were real. We have to find this boy.

(Mohinder turns and walks away.)

PETER: Hey, what was so important you had me meet you over here?

(She leads him back inside the loft.)



[INT. ISAAC MENDEZ’ LOFT – DAY]

SIMONE: That painting you wanted, Nathan bought it from Linderman, had it shipped here.

PETER: It's here ... can I see it?

(She stops in front of the ruined painting.)

SIMONE: There.

(Peter turns and looks at the ruined painting. He stops, confused.)

PETER: I-I don't understand.

SIMONE: He said it was to protect you, that you're gonna get yourself killed.

(Peter thinks about it a moment, then turns to Simone.)

PETER: Okay, wait a minute. You saw this painting, all right. You can describe it to me.

SIMONE: You really believe this, don't you? Save the cheerleader, save the world.

PETER: For reasons I can't begin to understand ... there are people that are counting on me to do this. I don't know if I can, but I have to try.

(Simone turns and heads for her purse. She looks for something inside.)

SIMONE: This doesn't make any sense. (She pulls out a photo.) I probably shouldn't be showing you this. It's a digital image, it came with the painting.

(Peter takes the photo and looks at it.)

(We see a dark-haired man dead in front of an entryway with a banner across it – UNION WELLS HIGH SCHOOL HOMECOMING. The clock under the banner reads: 8:12.)

SIMONE: Is that you, Peter?

PETER: I ... I don't know. Maybe.

SIMONE: If it's you, then you're gonna die at 8:12 tonight. Don't go, Peter.

PETER: I have to. I have to.

SIMONE: Union Wells High School is in Odessa, Texas. I took the liberty and made a phone call. Homecoming is tonight.

(Peter sighs with relief and hugs Simone.)

PETER: Thank you. Thank you.

SIMONE: Look, I don't know if this is gonna happen. Just come back, okay?

PETER: I will. I will.

PETER: (to phone) Hi, this is Peter Petrelli, is this Hiro Nakamura?

ANDO: (to phone) No. Ah, he will be right back.

PETER: (to phone) Who is this?

ANDO: (to phone) I'm his friend, Ando.

PETER: (to phone) Ando, right. Okay, this is very important. You and Hiro need to get to Odessa, Texas, as soon as you can -- Union Wells High School. Okay, that's where the cheerleader is.

ANDO: We are in Texas already. Midland, at the Burnt Toast Café. It's outside the airport.

ANDO: You are? That's great! Listen, I'm gonna get on a flight, tell Hiro that I'll be there before he knows it.

ANDO: Yes, okay. I will tell him. Good-bye, Peter Petrelli.

(The blonde-haired waitress walks past Ando on her way back to the counter. She stops to offer comfort to one of the waitresses standing in front of Charlie’s mini-shrine with lit candles, a framed photo of Charlie, a message written on an order pad with Charlie’s name badge.)

(A close-up of the pictures on the bulletin board shows a particular photo of Charlie holding a birthday cake with Hiro standing next to her.)

[INT. PAPER COMPANY – ISAAC’S ROOM – DAY -- CONTINUOUS]

(Eden sits next to Isaac and wipes his brow. Mr. Bennet watches from the doorway.)

MR. BENNET: It's useless. How is that supposed to help me find Sylar?

EDEN: He's not a vending machine. (Eden gets up and heads out of the room.) You can't just put the drugs in, pull a lever, and expect a clear response.



[INT. PAPER COMPANY – HALLWAY OUTSIDE ISAAC’S ROOM – DAY -- CONTINUOUS]

(Mr. Bennet closes the door when they exit the room.)

EDEN: I mean, he's a person.

MR. BENNET: Your emotions are impairing your judgment.

EDEN: Maybe, but I'm not the only one.

MR. BENNET: When he wakes up, have him paint another.

(He takes a couple of steps when Eden stops him.)

EDEN: No.

(He turns and looks at her.)

MR. BENNET: You think I'm being emotional? Do you have any idea what we're up against? Come here.

(He motions for her to follow him.)



[INT. PAPER COMPANY – OFFICE – DAY -- CONTINUOUS]

(Mr. Bennet takes a file folder off the filing cabinets and shows Eden the photos inside. The top photo is of Charlie lying in a pool of blood with her head cut open.)

EDEN: Oh, my God.

(There are a couple more photos.)

MR. BENNET: Sylar wants to do that to my Claire. I will do whatever I have to do to stop it.

(Mr. Bennet closes the file folder, turns and looks at the painting of Claire on the amphitheatre steps, a large menacing shadow cast over her.)

EDEN: Isaac can't help us. It was a mistake to do that to him.

(He turns and looks at her. After a moment, he nods.)

MR. BENNET: Go to the high school. Use the paintings as a guide. Wait for Sylar. You'll have help. When the time is right, neutralize him. I'll keep Claire safe at home.

EDEN: No, it's homecoming.

MR. BENNET: Find Sylar, take him out. And let me worry about Claire.

EVERYDAY GIRL: Congratulations, Claire.

CLAIRE: Thanks so much! (to Zach) I don't know that girl.

(A boy reading a 9TH Wonder comic book calls out to Claire.)

BOY: Holla to the queen!

CLAIRE: Holla back! (to Zach) Everybody who wasn't my friend is now my friend, and everybody who was my friend, isn't.

ZACH: Well, it's not a popularity contest; it's an unpopularity contest 'cause you rocked the freak vote.

CLAIRE: I what?

ZACH: Look, everybody who's like Jackie voted for Jackie, and everybody who isn't voted for you. And in this school, the unpopular vastly outnumber the popular. Made for a good campaign strategy.

(Zach opens his locker. Claire looks at Zach and scoffs.)

CLAIRE: You campaigned for me? Why? You think all this school spirit stuff is stupid.

(He takes a thick book out of his locker and shuts the door.)

ZACH: I never said it was stupid. I said it's beneath you. But obviously it's important, so whatever. Now you have a little piece of your old life back, okay? Just don't start acting like a bitch again.

(Claire smiles at Zach.)

ZACH: Look, I got this off of the Internet.

(He holds up a book, ACTIVATING EVOLUTION.)

ZACH: It supposedly has this really big chapter on spontaneous regeneration, so I thought it might enlighten you on the whole Miracle-Gro of it all.

(He gives the book to Claire. She looks through it. She closes the book and looks up at Zack with a bewildered look on her face.)

ZACH: What's with you?

CLAIRE: You're being so nice. I've never been this nice to you. I mean, I've been nice, but I could be nicer.

ZACH: Then why don't you?

(Jackie and the other cheerleaders walk up to her.)

JACKIE: Congratulations, Claire. Mmm, is the gay boy your date? You should tell him, only one of you gets to wear the tiara.

(Zach stays awkwardly quiet while Claire stews.)

(Suddenly, she belts Jackie one in her face.)

THUD!

(Jackie goes down. Zach is shocked. The other cheerleaders gather around Jackie who is out cold on the floor. A crowd of students watch in the distance.)

CHEERLEADER: Jackie

CLAIRE: You are being completely unreasonable. Do you have any idea what it means for me to miss this game?

(He turns and looks at her.)

MR. BENNET: You'll survive.

CLAIRE: But Dad!

MR. BENNET: No, you listen, and you listen good. As long as you live under my roof, you will do as I say. You may not agree, but don't think for a moment that that matters. You are not leaving this house tonight. Is that clear?

(Claire huffs.)

CLAIRE: Crystal.

SANDRA BENNET: She's gonna hate you for a long time on this one.

D.L.: What were you thinking? Do you know how scared I was?

MICAH: Now you know how it felt when you left us!

D.L.: Micah, what am I supposed to do here?

MICAH: Go back! She needs us!

D.L.: We've discussed this. Your mom --

MICAH: Dad, I know she's different, okay? I see it too. Something happened to her when you left. It got really bad. Then, sometimes, she'd show up instead of Mom.

D.L.: She?

MICAH: Jessica.

D.L.: Jessica?

MICAH: Dad, Mom-Mom's sick. She can't help herself. She can't control it.

D.L.: Micah. Does your mom know about Jessica?

MICAH: No, I don't think so. Dad, we can't just leave her. If you still love her, you'll help her.

MOHINDER: No one said you had to come.

NIRAND: And who's gonna keep you from getting killed? This is a dangerous neighborhood. One look at your fancy shoes and we'll both be running for our lives.

MOHINDER: (to a woman) Have you seen this boy?

(The woman shakes her head, no. Mohinder continues through the crowd.)

NIRAND: Come now, Mohinder. Let's stop this nonsense. Go back to the university, talk about this like rational people.

MOHINDER: I am not leaving until I find him.

(A man grabs Mohinder’s wrist.)

MAN: I know this boy. For 500 rupees, I can tell you where he is.

NIRAND: This man is a crook, give him nothing.

(Mohinder gets the money)

NIRAND: What are you doing?

(He gives it to the man.)

MOHINDER: Where?

(The man points off to the side. Mohinder turns and sees a group of kids playing with a soccer ball.)

(Iyer breaks away from the group, looks at Mohinder and smiles. Mohidner heads over.)

(The kids continue playing with the soccer ball. The ball rolls over toward Mohinder who toes the rolling ball and catches it in his hands. He throws it to Iyer.)

(Mohinder kneels in front of Iyer.)

MOHINDER: You came to me in my dream last night.

IYER SANJOG: I don't come to anyone. They come to me.

MOHINDER: Why? Why do they come to you?

IYER SANJOG: They have questions that need answers.

MOHINDER: I'm not sure that I have a question.

IYER SANJOG: (chuckles and smiles) Yes, you do.

(Mohinder turns and looks back at Nirand.)

MOHINDER: I have two paths in front of me. I need to know which one to take. Which one is my Destiny.

IYER SANJOG: You already have the answer you seek.

(Iyer smiles at Mohinder, then turns and takes the soccer ball back to the game with the kids. He leaves Mohinder perplexed.)

ANDO: Hiro.

ANDO: Excuse me. When was this picture taken?

LYNETTE (WAITRESS): Oh, that was Charlie's birthday. About six months ago.

CLAIRE: What's going on?

ZACH: I'm here to rescue you. Let's go.

CLAIRE: I'm grounded.

ZACH: No one grounds the queen, come on.

CLAIRE: Yeah, tell that to my dad.

ZACH: You only get to be homecoming queen once.

(Zach climbs into the bedroom.)

ZACH: You know what? You've already cemented your victory in the eyes of the student body by punching Jackie. Plus, if you back out now, she becomes the queen.

CLAIRE: My dad would pitch a fit.

ZACH: So, big deal. What? He grounds you more. He double grounds you. Come on, you deserve this.

CLAIRE: (smiles) I do deserve this. And tonight, you can be my date to the dance.

ZACH: Me?

CLAIRE: Sure, why not?

ZACH: Uh ... For a million different reasons.

CLAIRE: Is it about what Jackie said? Because I don't care –

ZACH: I don't care about that. You think I care about that? She can call me whatever she wants. I'm not gonna be embarrassed by it. I know who I am. I like who I am. I like who you are. I just ... I just wish that you liked who you are.

CLAIRE: I'm finally realizing who my friends really are. And that maybe being different isn't the end of the world. That's just who I am.

PETER: What happened to her?

ANDO: She was killed.

(Peter puts the photo back on the bulletin board as Ando steps over toward the seat.)

ANDO: (points) We were sitting right here. It happened so fast. Next thing we know, she was dead and the killer was gone in a flash. Like, okage.

PETER: I don’t know ...

ANDO: Uh ... boogeyman. Hiro says maybe it is the same man that is going to attack the cheerleader. I told Hiro do over, is too risky. But Hiro says man who is too afraid to use power, does not deserve to have power.

(Peter shows Ando the photo of the painting.)

PETER: I know when, and I know where the cheerleader gets attacked. I have to stop him.

ANDO: Is this you?

PETER: Maybe.

ANDO: You have a power, right?

PETER: Sort of.

ANDO: Super strength? You bend time and space like Hiro!

PETER: No, I ... I kind of absorb the abilities of others. But only when they're close.

PETER: I've got less than an hour. Okay, it happens at 8:12, I have to go.

CHANDRA: It was more than a dream, it was real. This boy can give me the answers I seek.

NIRAND: I'm your friend, Chandra, but you sound like a madman.

(Mohinder stands near Nirand and Chandra as they continue their conversation.)

CHANDRA: Well, all great thinkers were said to be madmen in their time -- Darwin, Einstein, Gandhi.

NIRAND: Darwin was not ridiculed by his university's biology round table.

(They walk through the street.)

CHANDRA: (mutters) They weren't even listening.

NIRAND: You're the one who's not listening! You think you're actually gonna find these people? Levitation, spontaneous regeneration? Chandra, I know that Shanti's death drove you to find answers, but it is time to let go.

CHANDRA: Ugh.

YOUNG MOHINDER: I just finished reading. It's fantastic, Father. To think that today, all around us, the evolutionary process continues so dramatically!

CHANDRA: Who told you to read this?

YOUNG MOHINDER: No one, I saw it on your desk, so I picked it up.

(Chandra takes the book from him.)

CHANDRA: You invaded my privacy, Mohinder. This was not for you to read.

YOUNG MOHINDER: Well, I'm sorry, but I think it's extraordinary, and I want to help. By using the Human Genome Project, we can locate these people.

CHANDRA: Not "we"! You can't be part of this.

YOUNG MOHINDER: Why not?

CHANDRA: (shouts) Because I don't want you to be!

YOUNG MOHINDER: I don't understand.

CHANDRA: Darwin said a scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections, a heart of stone. That's me, Mohinder. It's not you. Go home.

(Peter walks past the trophy display and stops. Across the back of the display is a large banner in red: JACKIE, YOU’RE OUR HERO.)

(In front is a clipping of an article with the headline, "Odessa Honors Local Hero". The photo is of Jackie receiving an award.)

(He steps away from the trophy display and bumps into Claire.)

PETER: Ooh, sorry!
CLAIRE: Sorry.

(She drops her bag. He picks it up for her.)

CLAIRE: That was my fault. I wasn't looking where I was going.

(She starts to leave when Peter stops her.)

PETER: Hey, do you ... do you know this girl, Jackie Wilcox?

(He indicates the trophy display.)

CLAIRE: Uh, yeah, half-time show starts in about five minutes. She'll be out on the field. She's a cheerleader. (He smiles at her.) Are you a reporter or something?

PETER: Alumni. I'm just curious.

(Claire starts to leave, then turns back.)

CLAIRE: You know, between you and me, she's not that special. Just your average teenage girl.

PETER: She rushed into a fire and saved a man's life, sounds kinda special to me.

CLAIRE: Yeah, you're right. I'm jealous. She's our town hero. Me? I don't win too many popularity contests.

(She starts to leave again.)

PETER: Hey, it gets better!

(Claire turns around.)

CLAIRE: What?

PETER: Life after high school. It gets a lot better.

(She smiles at him, then leaves. Peter leaves as well.)

CUT TO:



[EXT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – FRONT -- NIGHT -- CONTINUOUS]

(The door opens and Peter steps outside. He takes a couple of steps and turns around. He stares at the building, then reaches for the painting photo in his pocket. He takes it out and compares it. Sure enough, it’s the banner and large wall clock.)

(The clock reads: 8:00p.)

(Peter stares at the wall clock and tucks the photo back into his pocket.)

[CU: WALL CLOCK: 8:01]

(The minute hand advances forward.)

FADE OUT.

(COMMERCIAL SET)



FADE IN:

[INT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – HALLWAY -- NIGHT]

(Sylar stands in front of the trophy display case looking at the articles about Jackie Wilcox.)

(His hand, down at his side, slowly clenches into a fist.)

(We hear the sound of a watch ticking.)

(Sylar is wearing a dark-colored jacket and a baseball cap. His face is hidden in shadows.)



[INT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – LOCKER ROOMS -- NIGHT]

(Jackie claps her hands, pumping up the cheerleaders in the locker room.)

JACKIE: Half-time, girls! Come on, pump it up! Whoo!

Various Cheerleaders: Whoo! Yeah!

(One of the cheerleaders whispers to her and turns her head to indicate the last row of lockers.)

CHEERLEADER: (whispers to Jackie) She’s here, in that stall.

(Jackie turns to look and heads over there.)

(Claire is sitting on the bench putting her shoes on. Jackie approaches her, followed by the other cheerleaders who gather around to watch the confrontation.)

JACKIE: Will the nerviness never cease. I thought you were grounded.

CLAIRE: It didn't take. How's your eye?

JACKIE: Nothing I can't cover up.

(Jackie opens her locker. The other cheerleaders leave the two alone.)

JACKIE: There's something I wanna say to you, co-captain to co-captain.

(Jackie touches up her make-up. Claire stands up.)

CLAIRE: Say it.

(Jackie whirls around.)

JACKIE: I think you're a menace. And I'm not just talking about you punching me over your boyfriend, the girlfriend. I'm talking about you in general. We used to be BFF's. What happened?

CLAIRE: Maybe I've gained some perspective. (Jackie scoffs.) I'm tired of trying to be someone I'm not.

JACKIE: Well, you've been trying to be me since second grade.

CLAIRE: And now you're trying to be me.

(Jackie laughs.)

JACKIE: How do you figure?

CLAIRE: Your little heroic act of pulling the guy out of the burning train car ... wasn't your heroic act, it was mine.

JACKIE: (bluffs) No, it wasn't.

CLAIRE: I have it on tape.

(Jackie freezes. She turns and puts her stuff back in her locker. She doesn’t say anything.)

CLAIRE: You know, a good friend of mine once said it's more important to be honest with yourself and happy than popular. I think he got it right.

(Jackie shuts her locker.)

JACKIE: Really? Sounds like a loser to me.

(Jackie turns to leave, but then the locker room lights turn off --  the circuit breaker trips and the power whirrs to a stop as everything turns dark.)

(Claire looks around cautiously.)

JACKIE: Public schools suck.

(A shadow whooshes by. Claire whirls around. She doesn’t like this at all.)

CLAIRE: Did you hear that?

JACKIE: Hear what?

(Jackie turns and heads out.)



[EXT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – AMPHITHEATRE -- NIGHT]

(Mr. Bennet looks around the amphitheatre. The light from the doorway casts his long shadow across the steps.)



[CU: CLOCK: 8:06 PM]

[EXT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – FRONT -- NIGHT -- CONTINUOUS]

(Peter looks around the area. He holds the photo in his hands.)



[INT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – LOCKER ROOMS -- NIGHT]

(Jackie and Claire walk across the locker rooms.)

CLAIRE: Hello?

JACKIE: Stop it, you're freaking me out!

CLAIRE: I thought I heard something.

JACKIE: You're imagining it. Let's go!

(Jackie turns toward the front door. Claire runs forward and stops her.)

CLAIRE: Whoa, whoa, whoa.

(Claire doesn’t like the looks of it. The front doors are just in front of them.)

(Jackie pushes her away.)

JACKIE: What is your problem?

(Claire has a hold on Jackie’s hand and pulls her away from the front doors.)

CLAIRE: (scared) Don't go that way.

(Claire pulls Jackie back with her and she heads off in another direction, toward another exit.)

JACKIE: (annoyed) What the hell?

CLAIRE: Jackie, something's not right.

(Jackie pulls her hand out of Claire’s grip.)

JACKIE: No, duh! We're missing the coronation.

(Claire is quiet as she looks forward. Behind the two girls, the shadow of someone there grows large against the wall behind them. They don’t notice.)

JACKIE: Believe me, if you don't want to go out there and get that homecoming crown, I'm more than happy --

(Sylar grabs Jackie's neck and pulls her out from behind Claire.)

JACKIE: Aah!

(Claire turns around and sees Sylar with his hand tight around Jackie’s neck. He pushes her up high against the lockers. Jackie struggles, her feet kicking helplessly against the locker doors and dangling high above the floor.)

CLAIRE: No!

(Claire jumps on Sylar’s back, grabbing him around his neck as she tries to get him to release Jackie. Sylar’s grip is firmly around Jackie’s neck. Jackie continues to kick helplessly against the locker doors.)

CLAIRE: No! No!

(Sylar swings his arm and pushes Claire off his back. Claire flies across the aisle and slams hard against the concrete wall. She falls to a crumpled heap on the floor.)

(Jackie claws at Sylar’s hand around her neck.)

(She screams.)



[EXT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – AMPHITHEATRE -- NIGHT]

(Mr. Bennet hears the scream and turns around already fearing the worst.)

MR. BENNET: Claire!

(He runs for the building.)



[EXT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – FRONT -- NIGHT -- CONTINUOUS]

(Peter also hears the scream. He heads back to the building.)



[INT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – LOCKER ROOMS -- NIGHT]

(Jackie screams. Sylar covers her mouth with his other hand, muffling her screams.)

JACKIE: Aah! Aah!

(Jackie continues to kick and struggle.)

(Claire is on the floor, her arm broken.)

(Claire’s eye opens and she moves.)

(Sylar uses his finger and slashes a cut clear across Jackie’s forehead.)

(Blood spatters across the HOMECOMING banner hanging on the wall.)

(Jackie continues to struggle against his grip. Blood drips down into her eyes. She pulls his hand off her mouth and gasps.)

(Sylar keeps his hold around Jackie’s neck. She continues to kick and struggle against him.)

(Claire is awake. She grabs her broken arm and snaps it back into place. She blinks a couple of times.)

(Jackie stops kicking, blood drips onto her white cheerleader shoes. She’s still alive and gasping.)

(Claire gets to her feet. Her outfit is stained with her own blood. Her face is completely bashed in from the force of hitting the wall. The sounds of Claire’s bones healing is heard.)

(Sylar keeps his hold on Jackie, but turns to watch Claire. Right before his very eyes, Claire starts healing – her right eye heals and she opens it, her bruises vanish, cuts mend, bleeding stops.)

(Claire takes a deep breath and looks at Jackie.)

JACKIE: (rasps) Run.

(Sylar drops Jackie and turns his attention to Claire. Jackie hits the floor with a THUD.)

(Claire runs.)



[INT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – HALLWAY – NIGHT -- CONTINUOUS]

(Claire runs out into the hallway and bumps into Peter who is standing in front of the trophy display.)

(He looks at her and sees the blood in her hair and on her uniform.)

PETER: Are you okay?

(Claire looks behind him. Peter turns around and sees Sylar step out into the hallway.)

(He and Claire turn and run toward the exit.)

PETER: Run! Go! Keep going! Run!

(They reach the end of the hallway. Claire runs out of the building. Peter stops and turns to face Sylar.)

(Sylar faces Peter. There’s a whoosh and a rattle and the lockers between them fly off their hinges, hurtling through the air toward Peter.)

(Peter ducks. Most of the locker doors sway to the side; some hit him, but not strong enough to knock him over. Not chancing it, Peter turns and runs out of the building. The locker doors clang to the floor.)

(Sylar starts following them.)



[INT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – LOCKER ROOM -- NIGHT -- CONTINUOUS]

(Mr. Bennet enters the locker room. He stops when he sees the dead body on the floor in front of the lockers.)

MR. BENNET: Oh, my God. Claire.

(He rushes forward and is surprised to see that it’s not Claire.)

(He stops, thinks about it, then heads for the exit.)



[CU: CLOCK]

(The minute hand advances. It is now 8:11 p.m.)

[EXT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – AMPHITHEATRE -- NIGHT]

(The door opens and Claire runs outside, screaming. A long shadow follows her. She starts running up the steps and trips. Peter catches up with her. Sylar shadow appears in the doorway.)

PETER: Hey, hey, hey! Run!

(He helps her up to her feet and they both run up the steps to the edge of the amphitheatre.)

PETER: Run!

CLAIRE: Aah ...

(They reach the top, turn and see Sylar exiting the building.)

CLAIRE: Who is it?

PETER: Go, to the stadium, okay? Find people, find lights. He doesn't want to be seen.

(Peter turns and glances over at Sylar who just stands there watching them.)

CLAIRE: What about you?

PETER: Don't worry about me. Just go!

(Claire doesn’t move. Peter shouts at her.)

PETER: GO!

(Claire backs away and runs. She leaves Peter behind. Peter watches her go for a moment, then turns to check on Sylar.)

(Sylar is standing right there in front of him.)

(Sylar grabs Peter to push him out of the way. Peter grabs Sylar and holds onto him. The two men fall off the top of the amphitheatre.)

THUD!



[CU: CLOCK]

(The minute hand advances. It is now 8:12 p.m.)



[TOP VIEW DOWN]

(Peter and Sylar are on the ground. Both men are not moving. Peter is in a pool of blood, his arm and back twisted in an awkward angle.)

(We crane up and twist around on the two men.)

FADE OUT.

(COMMERCIAL SET)



FADE IN:

[EXT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – FRONT -- NIGHT]

(We open on Peter on the floor in the EXACT pose of Isaac’s painting. Sylar is nowhere to be seen.)

[CU: CLOCK]

(It is 8:12 p.m.)

(The front door opens and Claire runs out. She sees Peter on the ground in a pool of blood.)

CLAIRE: Oh, no ...

(She runs over to him.)

(Peter coughs and moves. His bones crunch as he heals. He pants with exertion.)

(Claire kneels, watching Peter with keen interest.)

(Peter grabs his twisted hips and legs and unfolds himself. He grunts, groans, and pants.)

(Claire’s eyes widen with surprise and elation.)

CLAIRE: You ...

(Peter continues to pant. The bleeding cuts on his face heal right before her eyes, skin mending, blood clearing.)

CLAIRE: How did you — do…

(Peter looks just as surprised. He turns and looks around expecting to see Sylar nearby, but there’s no one.)

PETER: (gravely) Where is he?

CLAIRE: I don't know. He ran away before I got here.

(Peter looks around.)

PETER: Police. Go get some help, okay?

CLAIRE: Okay. I'll be back.

(Claire gets up and starts to leave, when she stops and turns around.)

CLAIRE: Hey. What's your name?

PETER: Peter.

CLAIRE: I'm Claire.

PETER: Are you the one? By saving you, did I save the world?

CLAIRE: (shakes her head) I don't know. I'm just a cheerleader.

(Claire turns and runs to get help.)



[EXT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – STADIUM – NIGHT -- CONTINUOUS]

(Claire runs toward the stadium.)

MR. BENNET: Claire!

(She turns and sees her dad.)

CLAIRE: Dad.

(She heads for her dad.)

CLAIRE: Dad.

(They reach each other and they hug.)

MR. BENNET: It's okay. You're okay.

CLAIRE: Dad, it was terrible, Jackie, she—

MR. BENNET: I know, I know.

(She pulls away form him a little.)

CLAIRE: (panting) We have to go back. We -- we have to go back, Peter --

MR. BENNET: No, no, no.

CLAIRE: -- he saved my life!

MR. BENNET: No, no, no, he'll be fine.

CLAIRE: But we can't leave him. We can't leave him. He almost died, but then he ... he ... (She turns and pulls him.) (desperate) We have to go back! We have to go back!

MR. BENNET: The police'll take care of everything. Look at you. You're lucky to be alive.

CLAIRE: It's not luck, Dad. I have something I have to tell you.



[EXT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – GROUNDS BEHIND BUILDING -- NIGHT]

(Sylar pants as he climbs and limps away from the building.)

(Eden is leaning up against a tree, waiting for him. He stops and sees her. He puts his bloodied hand out.)

EDEN: (softly) You don't want to hurt me.

(Sylar pulls his hand away, turns it over and looks at it.)

EDEN: We just need to talk. (She walks toward him.) You can tell me all about yourself. But first, go to sleep.

(Her voice echoes quietly. Sylar is quiet.)

EDEN: (echoing) You need to sleep.

(The Haitian steps out and puts his hand over Sylar’s face. Sylar knocks out and falls to the ground.)

(The Haitian nods.)



[EXT. PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTER – FRONT -- NIGHT]

(Police cars arrive at the scene, lights flashing, sirens blaring. Peter glances back at them, then he quickly straightens out his foot which is bent at an abnormal angle. His bones crunch from the force.)

(Officers exit their cars and surround him.)

OFFICER 1: That's the guy! He's the one in the overcoat the janitor saw.

OFFICER 2: Put your hands on your head!

OFFICER 3: What the hell?

PETER: Wha-- ?

(Peter puts his hands on his head.)

OFFICER 3: Look at all that blood.

PETER: It's not what you think, guys!

OFFICER: All right, hands up.

PETER: What are you do -- It's not me! He's getting away!

(The officer snaps handcuffs around Peter’s wrists.)

OFFICER: Let's go! Stand up!

(They twist his arms around his back and snaps the handcuffs closed. They pull Peter up to his feet.)

FADE TO WHITE:



FADE IN:

[EXT. KANYAKUMARI -- DAY]

(A group of people have gathered to the shore. Mohinder stands and watches them. His mother walks over to him.)

MRS. SURESH: Mira called. She said you turned down her job offer. You're going back to New York?

MOHINDER: He did it, you know. He discovered them. His theory, it was right.

MRS. SURESH: And that is good news, yes?

MOHINDER: Why didn't he tell me?

MRS. SURESH: He wanted you to live your own life. So now that you know about them, what will you do?

MOHINDER: Find them. Tell them who they are, if they don't already know. Warn them of the dangers they face.

MRS. SURESH: And who will protect you?



[EXT. SIDE ROAD CAFE -- NIGHT]

(DL and Micah walk back to their car parked at the BBQ Cafe.)

D.L.: Next stop, Vegas.

MICAH: Dad, we don't need to go back to Vegas.

D.L.: Why not?

MICAH: I called Mom. I told her where we are. She's on her way.

(DL looks around.)

D.L.: Micah, get in the car. Now, come on!

(Micah climbs into the car. He slams the door shut and hurries around the car.)

MICAH: Dad, what's wrong?

(He opens the door.)

MOHINDER: (v.o.) We are all, at our cores, the sum of our fears.

[REVERSE: RIFLE CROSSHAIRS]

(Jessica takes aim. She has DL in her crosshairs. He looks around before getting into the car.)

MOHINDER: (v.o.) To embrace destiny, we must, inevitably, face those fears and conquer them.

(Jessica adjusts her hold on the trigger.)

MOHINDER: (v.o.) Whether they come from the familiar ...

(She fires.)



[INT. BURNT TOAST CAFE (PRESENT) -- NIGHT]

(Lynette turns around as she refills customer’s cups of coffee.)

MOHINDER: (v.o.) Or the unknown.

(She walks over to the booth and fills Ando’s cup.)

WHOOSH TO:



[INT. BURNT TOAST CAFE (SIX MONTHS EARLIER) -- NIGHT]

(Hiro sits in the booth as Charlie fills his cup with coffee.)

HIRO: My name is Hiro Nakamura! (Charlie nods.) I'm here to save your life!

CAPTION:
      SIX MONTHS EARLIER

(Before she can respond to that, the Sheriff calls her over to the counter.)

SHERIFF: Hey, Charlie!

(She turns and he motions her over. Lynette holds a party hat for her. The other waitresses, cooks and customers have gathered there.)

SHERIFF: Charlie! Come over and blow out the candles!

(Charlie laughs with delight and surprise.)

CHARLIE: (to Hiro) Hold that thought, okay? I gotta go make a wish.

(She makes her way toward the counter. Party favors honk. Hiro sits in the booth. He smiles as he watches her.)

(Lynette puts the party hat on Charlie’s head. Charlie glances back at Hiro and motions for him to join them. Lynette picks up her camera.)

(We zoom in on Hiro as he smiles.)

FADE TO BLACK.
