Hiro s’est téléporté six mois dans le passé. Il se retrouve dans le même café où travaille Charlie, qui fait son anniversaire. Il lui dit qu’il s’appelle Hiro et qu’il est là pour lui sauver la vie. Elle est surprise, mais l’invite à venir prendre une photo avec elle.

 

A Brooklyn. Un homme répare une montre. Chandra Suresh entre dans la boutique et l’homme lui dit que sa montre est cassée. Chandra lui demande comment il la su, et il répond qu’il a juste un don qui lui permet de voir comment fonctionne toute sorte de chose. Le professeur lui annonce qu’il n’est pas venu le voir à cause de sa montre, mais à cause de lui, et il semble assez bien le connaître. Il l’appelle par son nom, Gabriel Gray, alors que l’homme ne s’est pas présenté. Chandra lui donne une copie de son livre en lui demandant de le lire, et il s’en va.

 

A Los Angeles. Matt descend de sa voiture de police, il vient d’arrêter un véhicule, conduit par Eden. Il y a une bouteille d’alcool à moitié vide à coté d’elle. Matt lui demande de sortir de sa voiture, mais elle utilise son pouvoir pour se débarrasser de lui. Elle lui dit de retourner dans sa voiture et d’aller manger une douzaine de donuts. Matt obéit et il part. Eden démarre à son tour, mais un homme se tient debout devant elle, c’est l’haïtien.

 

Claire est dans sa chambre, lorsque Jackie arrive pour lui annoncer que Lori Trammel a quitté l’équipe de Cheerleader, et que Claire peut prendre sa place. La jeune fille est contente, mais Jackie lui reproche son manque d’enthousiasme. Les deux filles se disputent, Claire trébuche et elle se coupe la main sur du verre.

Dans la cuisine, Mme Bennet nettoie la blessure de Claire, et décide de l’emmener aux urgences car la coupure est profonde. Le téléphone sonne. Mr Bennet décroche. C’est Chandra Suresh, qui l’appelle à propos de Claire.

 

Hiro est avec Charlie. Il essaye de lui dire qu’elle est en danger et qu’il ne faut pas qu’elle aille travailler le lendemain. Puis il s’aperçoit qu’il pleut dehors, et Charlie lui dit que ce sont les pluies d’Avril. Hiro se rend alors compte qu’il a trop reculé dans le temps et que s’il essaye de se téléporter à nouveau il peut se retrouver n’importe où.

 

Las Vegas. Niki est à une réunion pour alcoolique anonyme. Tina est avec elle. Alors qu’elle parle, elle remarque un homme au fond de la salle. Après la réunion, elle va le voir et lui demande ce qu’il fait là. Elle ajoute qu’elle ne veut pas qu’il fasse partie de sa vie, qu’elle est mariée et qu’elle a un fils. Mais il dit qu’il veut justement connaître son petit-fils et son beau-fils. On comprend alors que c’est son père.

 

A Manhattan. Peter fait une fête dans son appartement, car il a eu son diplôme d’infirmier. Nathan, Heidi et Mme Petrelli arrivent. Peter et sa mère parlent du fait qu’il n’ait pas invité son père, avec qui il semble ne pas avoir de bonnes relations. Nathan ne semble pas approuver le choix de son frère de devenir infirmier, mais Heidi est là pour l’empêcher de dire trop de méchancetés à Peter. Celui-ci lui demande ce qui le tracasse, et Nathan lui dit que le procureur veut qu’il poursuive Linderman en justice, alors qu’il est le plus gros client de leur père, et que si Nathan dévoile les relations de Linderman avec la mafia, leur père aussi tombera. Heidi revient, et Nathan va danser avec elle.

 

Chandra est dans son appartement, quand Gabriel frappe à sa porte. Il lui explique son travail et ses théories. Gabriel semble très intéressé.

 

Mr Bennet discute avec Eden, qui ne peut pas utiliser son pouvoir contre lui à cause de l’Haïtien. Eden est attachée à un fauteuil. Il lui dit qu’avec sa capacité, elle pouvait faire tout ce qu’elle voulait car personne ne pouvait lui dire non. Mais maintenant quelqu’un le peut.

 

Hiro est au téléphone. Il appelle Ando à son travail, mais c’est Hiro qui répond car Ando est malade. Quand il s’aperçoit qu’il se parle à lui-même, il raccroche.

 

Matt est dans sa voiture de police, il mange des donuts. Tommy arrive alors et lui rappelle que son concours pour être inspecteur est dans moins d’une heure. Il part, confiant.

 

Hiro travaille avec Charlie, dans le café. Il lui offre un cadeau pour son anniversaire. C’est un livre pour apprendre le Japonais. Il essaye toujours de la convaincre de partir loin de Midland. Elle lui coupe la parole pour lui faire un compliment en Japonais, et Hiro est impressionné qu’elle puisse le parler si vite. Elle lui dit alors qu’elle arrive à se rappeler de tout dernièrement. Hiro lui dit que son pouvoir sera plus grand dans le futur. Il lui a déjà avoué que c’était de là qu’il venait, mais elle n’y croit pas évidemment. Hiro se concentre alors que Charlie se retourne une seconde car une commande est prête, et un bouquet de fleurs apparaît dans ses bras. Elle le remercie pour les fleurs et lui demande d’attendre le temps qu’elle serve les clients, mais Hiro lui montre qu’il l’a déjà fait. Charlie rigole et dit à une autre serveuse que Hiro est un magicien. Elle ne le croit toujours pas.

 

Niki est assise dans un cimetière quand DL arrive. Elle est devant la tombe de Jessica Sanders, sa sœur, qui est morte à l’âge de onze ans. Elle dit à son mari que Hal est revenu et ils décident de l’inviter à dîner. Niki pense qu’il pourrait les aider à payer les frais de scolarité de Micah.

 

Nathan et Heidi rentrent chez eux, dans la décapotable de Nathan. Il n’arrête pas de critiquer son frère et le choix qu’il a fait d’être infirmier. Une autre voiture arrive derrière eux et leur rentre dedans. Nathan s’envole dans les airs, alors que la voiture fonce droit dans le décor. Nathan retombe. Peter se réveille dans son appartement. Il a vu l’accident dans son rêve. Le téléphone sonne, et Peter va à l’hôpital. Il retrouve Nathan qui lui dit que Heidi est en salle d’opération. Peter lui demande s’il se rappelle de l’autre voiture. Nathan ne comprend pas comment il peut être au courant, et Peter lui avoue avoir rêvé de l’accident juste avant qu’il n’appelle. Nathan lui dit qu’il s’agissait de l’un des hommes de Linderman. Nathan se sent coupable pour l’accident et Heidi, mais Peter lui dit que c’est de la faute de leur père et pas la sienne. Un médecin arrive pour apprendre à Nathan que sa femme ne pourra plus marcher.

 

Le lendemain de sa rencontre avec Charlie. Hiro arrive au restaurant, pour lui montrer un journal avec le résultat d’un match de base-ball qu’il avait prédit la veille. La jeune femme lui prend le journal des mains, et commence à lire impeccablement en Japonais. Mais elle ne croit toujours pas qu’il vient du futur. Il lui demande alors si elle connaît l’origami, et le fait que si quelqu’un arrive à plier mille feuilles de papier on lui accord un vœu. Hiro se concentre, et mille oiseaux pliés apparaissent autour d’eux. Il lui donne un billet d’avion pour le Japon. Elle accepte.

 

Chandra fait passer quelques tests à Gabriel. Mais il ne semble pas avoir de capacité particulière, ce qui les déçoit tous les deux. Gabriel voudrait continuer, mais le professeur refuse, en lui disant qu’il s’est peut-être trompé, et qu’il doit s’occuper d’aller voir d’autres personnes. Gabriel se met en colère, il attrape les dossiers de Chandra dont l’un avec l’adresse d’un homme qui serait télékinésiste, et le professeur lui demande de partir. Il sort et au même moment arrive Mr Bennet.

 

Hal est chez Niki et DL. Il a offert un ordinateur portable à Micah pour son anniversaire. Tout à l’air de bien se passer, et Niki lui fait comprendre qu’ils ont quelques soucis financiers pour inscrire Micah dans une école privée. Hal accepte de leur donner de l’argent pour son petit-fils. Puis la conversation devient un peu plus tendue lorsque Hal dit à sa fille de ne plus faire comme s’il ne s’était rien passé, qu’elle est aussi malade que ses secrets. Il décide d’aller voir se que fait Micah. Le garçon est dans sa chambre, il a démonté l’ordinateur. Hal se met en colère quand il le voit, et il décide de partir. Il donne une enveloppe à Niki avec de l’argent. Elle lui demande pourquoi il fait ça, et il la regarde, surprit qu’elle n’ait aucun souvenir de ce qu’il a fait dans le passé, ce pour quoi il ne s’est jamais occupé d’elle. Il s’en va. Elle regarde son reflet dans le visage, et son expression change.

 

Chandra et Mr Bennet discutent au sujet de Claire. Mr Bennet veut savoir ce qu’il va arriver à sa fille, et Chandra lui répond que peut-être, son anomalie génétique ne va pas l’affecter. Mr Bennet lui demande si lui aussi a une fille, et il répond qu’il en avait une, et qu’elle avait une anomalie génétique elle aussi, qui fut la base de ses recherches. Il voudrait pouvoir rencontrer Claire, mais Mr Bennet n’est pas vraiment d’accord. Ils se quittent en bon terme cependant.

 

Hal est dans sa chambre d’hôtel, lorsqu’on frappe à la porte. Jessica entre, et le plaque contre une armoire. Elle accuse son père de l’avoir tué, et maltraité pendant son enfance. Il continue de penser qu’il s’agit de Niki, mais elle lui dit que sa sœur ne se rappelle de rien, car c’était toujours elle qui prenait les coups quand leur père était saoul. Elle ajoute qu’elle est là pour protéger Niki, car elle est incapable de le faire elle seule. Elle sort le chèque de sa poche et le lui enfonce dans la bouche en lui disant de partir loin et de ne jamais revenir.

 

Claire est dans sa chambre, dans sa tenue de cheerleader. Elle s’entraîne devant son miroir, quand Mr Bennet entre dans la chambre, un ours en peluche dans les mains. Il lui dit qu’elle doit être trop grande pour ça maintenant, mais elle le prend et remercie son père. Elle est contente d’être devenue une pom-pom girl, mais l’attitude de Jackie la dérange. Son père lui demande comment va sa main. Elle défait le bandage, et s’aperçoit qu’il n’y a plus aucune marque.

 

Matt est rentré chez lui. Il annonce à Janice qu’il a encore raté le test. Elle essaye de lui remonter le moral.

 

Peter se prépare pour aller donner sa déposition au juge contre son père. Nathan arrive chez lui et lui dit que ce n’est plus la peine, car leur père est mort, il a fait un arrêt cardiaque le matin même. Peter ne sait pas quoi dire, et Nathan ajoute qu’il peut se réconforter en se disant que leur père est mort s’en savoir que ses fils allaient le poignarder dans son dos.

 

Hiro et Charlie se préparent pour leur voyage au Japon, mais elle semble préoccupée. Hiro lui demande si elle veut toujours faire le voyage avec lui, et elle le rassure, en lui disant que depuis qu’elle la rencontré, elle se sent très heureuse, mais qu’elle ne peut pas laisser les gens être trop proche d’elle, car elle a un caillot de sang dans son cerveau, pas très loin d’un anévrisme, et qu’elle est mourante. Hiro ne veut pas y croire car il est supposé la sauver. Elle lui dit qu’il l'a déjà fait et qu’elle l’aime. Alors qu’ils sont sur le point de s’embrasser. Hiro se téléporte à nouveau dans le présent, mais au Japon. Il concentre pour retourner la voir, mais rien ne se passe.

 

Gabriel est dans son atelier, lorsqu’un homme entre. Il s’agit du télékinésiste, que Gabriel a contacté. Il se présente sous le nom de Gabriel Sylar. L’homme, Brian, lui montre qu’il est capable de faire bouger les objets par la pensée, et il demande à Sylar s’il peut faire en sorte que ça s’arrête. A ce moment, Gabriel comprend que son pouvoir à lui est de voir et comprendre comment fonctionnent les pouvoirs des autres, au niveau de leur cerveau, comme des pièces qui s’emboîtent. Il attrape un objet à coté de lui, et frappe Brian alors qu’il a le dos tourné.

 

Mr Bennet parle avec Eden. Il lui propose de collaborer avec lui, et de ce fait de recommencer sa vie à zéro pour la rendre meilleure, ou de retourner à son ancienne vie, et d’avoir de grande chance d’être morte dans la semaine. Elle lui demande ce qu’il attend d’elle. Il veut qu’elle retire le nom de Claire Bennet de la liste du professeur Suresh.

 

Sylar est chez Chandra. Il lui montre son pouvoir, celui de déplacer les objets par la pensée. Le professeur n’en revient pas. Gabriel s’excuse de s’être mis en colère contre lui, et il ajoute que leur mission dorénavant, à tous les deux, est de retrouver tous les autres pour débloquer leur potentiel.

 

Dans le présent. Ando est devant la photo de Hiro et Charlie, prise le jour de son anniversaire. Hiro entre dans le restaurant, mais il ne va pas bien. Il dit à son ami qu’il a prit le bus pour rentrer, car il n’arrive plus à se téléporter. Il ajoute qu’il n’a pas pu sauver Charlie, que son pouvoir est trop grand pour lui.

 

Mohinder regarde son écran d’ordinateur, où défilent tous les noms des personnes découvertes par son père.

 

On voit Sylar, dans le café. Puis le meurtre de Charlie. Puis Claire qui avoue à son père qu’elle a quelque chose à lui avouer, après l’attaque de Sylar au lycée. Puis l’arrestation de Peter, et l’enlèvement de Gabriel par Eden et l’Haïtien. Puis Jessica qui vise DL avec une arme et on entend le coup de feu.

 

Hiro dépose un oiseau en origami à coté des photos en souvenir de Charlie, et il dit à Ando qu’il l’aimait.

[EPISODE TITLE]
      CHAPTER TEN
      "SIX MONTHS AGO"



REVERSE VIEW: We’re looking up through a magnifying light at the upside-down image of GABRIEL GRAY as he works on a timepiece.

CAPTION:
      SIX MONTHS AGO
      BROOKLYN

(Gabriel Gray is working on a timepiece. He concentrates and slips the next delicate gear perfectly into place. He works confidently and efficiently. He adjusts the parts and the timepiece starts to work. He raises his head and watches it for a moment.)

(The front door opens.)

(Gabriel continues to work on the timepiece. In the store, Chandra Suresh looks around. He shuts the door.)

(Gabriel hears the door close and looks up.)

GABRIEL GRAY: Can I help you?

CHANDRA SURESH: I hope so, Mr. Gray.

(Chandra heads to the back of the shop where Gabriel Gray is working. Chandra is carrying a book. Gabriel looks at Chandra’s wristwatch.)

GABRIEL GRAY: I can fix it.

CHANDRA SURESH: My watch isn't broken.

GABRIEL GRAY: Actually, it is.

(Gabriel holds out his hand. Chandra takes his wristwatch off and hands it to Gabriel. Gabriel holds the watch up to his ear and listens. He hears something.)

GABRIEL GRAY: Yeah, the self-winding coil is loose. Your watch is running two seconds slow.

CHANDRA SURESH: How did you know?

(Gabriel starts to fix the watch. Chandra moves to watch over Gabriel’s shoulder.)

GABRIEL GRAY: Just a talent I have for the way things work ... how the parts should go.

CHANDRA SURESH: That looks rather complicated.

(Chandra points to a ticking mechanism.)

GABRIEL GRAY: That ... oh. The body's standard, but the parts, the insides, are German. 1917. I've been working on it for seven years.

(He chuckles and finishes fixing Chandra’s watch. He hands it back to him.)

CHANDRA SURESH: How much do I owe you?

GABRIEL GRAY: Oh, please. Don't worry about it.

(Gabriel stops and looks at Chandra. He stares at him and takes his glasses off.)

GABRIEL GRAY: You didn't come here for the watch.

CHANDRA SURESH: I came to find you, Gabriel. (Gabriel stands up.) My name is Chandra Suresh. I'm a geneticist. I have a theory about human evolution. And I believe you ... are a part of it.

(Chandra gives his book, ACTIVATING EVOLUTION, to Gabriel.)

CHANDRA SURESH: Read it. If you'd like to talk more, I've written my phone number and address inside.

(Chandra smiles and heads for the front door. Gabriel is surprised to see him leave without another word.)

(Chandra leaves the small shop.)

CUT TO:

(On a bridge across the highway, a police officer stops a convertible. A cell phone rings. Matt Parkman exits the officer car. He checks his phone and closes it.)

(He takes out his flashlight and approaches the woman in the black convertible.)

MATT PARKMAN: License and registration.

EDEN MCCAIN: Oh, this isn't my car, I kinda stole it.

MATT PARKMAN: Can you take off the glasses for me, please?

(Eden takes her dark glasses off. He sees the liquor bottle in the front seat.)

MATT PARKMAN: I'm gonna have to ask you to step out of the car.

EDEN MCCAIN: No, I don't feel like it.

MATT PARKMAN: That wasn't a suggestion.

EDEN MCCAIN: Well, here's a suggestion. Why don't you go get back in your car and eat a dozen donuts. That is what you cops like to do, right?

(Matt takes a step away from the car.)

MATT PARKMAN: (firmly) I said step out of the car. Now.

EDEN MCCAIN: (echo-y) I think you really want to eat some donuts.

(Her voice deepens.)

(Matt is quiet as he stares at her. Eden stares back. Matt thinks about it. Without another word, he turns and heads back to his car. He looks at Eden, then gets inside.)

(The officer car leaves.)

(Eden starts her engine, but can’t move the car because the Haitian is standing right in front of it, staring at her.)

(Eden stares back.)

      SIX MONTHS AGO
      ODESSA, TEXAS

(Jackie sits down on the edge of Claire’s bed.)

CLAIRE: Who told you that?

JACKIE WILCOX: The entire football team. Anyway, somehow she found shame and resigned. (sing-song) Turned in her pom-poms ...

CLAIRE: I'm in? Are you kidding?

JACKIE WILCOX: Claire, destiny is calling you. Come on, try it on. You can model, I'll take pictures. We'll totally commiserate the event.

CLAIRE: I think you mean "commemorate." And ... I'll try it on later.

JACKIE WILCOX: 'Kay, most girls can't wait to get their uniforms on. I mean, except Lori Trammel. She couldn't wait to take it off.

CLAIRE: Why do you have to be like that?

JACKIE WILCOX: Okay, first of all, I've earned that. And if you don't want it or this, Kristy Chan is salivating for your position.

(She turns and starts to leave the room; Claire quickly gets off the bed and grabs the uniform.)

CLAIRE: No! I want it, I do.

JACKIE WILCOX: Then show it! Show me some S, P, I, R, I, T!

(Claire pulls; Jackie doesn’t let go. They start a tug of war with the uniform between them.)

CLAIRE: I'm not gonna drool!

JACKIE WILCOX: Then prove it, Claire! Prove it!

(Claire yanks hard. The uniform rips. Claire is thrown backwards. She turns to brace herself and her hand breaks through the glass cabinet door.)

HAL SANDERS: Look, I know how you feel about me. And Lord knows I deserve it. I was awful to you, and everyone I ever met.

NIKI: You weren't awful, you just weren't there. You can't be awful if you're not present. You know, I'm married now.

ANGELA PETRELLI: Your father is very proud of you.

PETER: And still couldn't make it.

ANGELA PETRELLI: Well, he had a meeting. Mr. Linderman's in Atlantic City --

PETER: (interrupts gently) Listen, I-I did this without his blessing, and without his money. Okay? So I think it's only right that we celebrate without him.

ANGELA PETRELLI: I have always wanted a nurse in the family. We have enough lawyers.

(Nathan moves to sit next to Peter.)

PETER: What's going on?

NATHAN: The DA wants me to prosecute Linderman.

PETER: Dad's biggest client.

NATHAN: Mm-hmm, yeah. Well, the DA thinks Linderman's mob ties run so deep, if I can take him down, the empire crumbles.

PETER: You do that, though, Dad'll go down too.

NATHAN: You used to tell him he was a criminal for protecting criminals. Here's a chance to set things straight. Take the stink off the family name --

PETER: He's still our father. No matter what he's done. You go after him, you're never going to forgive yourself. Ever.

CHANDRA SURESH: A friend at Columbia has access to an MRI.

GABRIEL GRAY: Mapping the brain.

CHANDRA SURESH: Measuring alpha waves, resting rates, neuron clusters. The brain controls every human action, voluntary or involuntary. Every breath, every heartbeat, every emotion. If the ... soul exists, scientifically speaking, it exists in the brain.

(Gabriel chuckles and sits down.)

GABRIEL GRAY: When I was a kid ... I used to wish some stranger would come and tell me my family wasn't really my family. They weren't bad people, they were just ... insignificant. And I wanted to be different. Special. I wanted to change. A new name, a new life. The watchmaker's son ... became a watchmaker. It is so futile. And I wanted to be ... important.

NATHAN: My brother Peter, the hospice nurse. Can you believe it? It's just --

HEIDI: Oh, it's a perfect fit. He's selfless and empathic ...

NATHAN: He's self-centered and righteous. (Heidi scoffs.) Self-righteous.

HEIDI: He's a hell of a lot nicer than you.

NATHAN: He can afford to be. He hasn't been under as much scrutiny. My dad did what he had to do to take care of this family and that's something that Peter is never gonna understand.

HEIDI PETRELLI: And you do.

NATHAN: It's my responsibility. It's my inherited ... birthright. I didn't ask to be Dad's favorite. I never asked to be loved more than Peter, but that's just ... the reality.

(A car driving behind them suddenly takes it up a notch and tailgates them.)

NATHAN: What does this guy want?

PETER: Yeah.

(Peter hands Nathan his phone.)

PETER: You're not hurt?

(Nathan stands up and dials.)

NATHAN: No. Landed three hundred feet away from the wreck. (Peter gets up and follows him.) Couldn't tell you how I got there. Couldn't tell you much of anything at this point.

PETER: Let me see that, let me see.

(Peter stops Nathan to look at the gash on his forehead.)

PETER: Yeah, that's a bad cut. You need to lie down.

NATHAN: No, not until Heidi's all right. Won't get a signal.

PETER: Do you remember the other car?

(Nathan stops.)

NATHAN: What?

PETER: In the accident.

NATHAN: Who told you that?

(Peter shrugs.)

NATHAN: Who told you that?

PETER: I had a dream right before you called.

NATHAN: My wife's in surgery and you're dreaming. That's great.

(Nathan turns and takes a couple of steps away.)

PETER: There was another car, wasn't there?

(Nathan doesn’t answer him. Peter walks over.)

PETER: Nathan. (Peter puts his hands on Nathan’s shoulders.) Wasn't there?

NATHAN: Yeah. It was Linderman's guys. Must've found out about the DA's plans. It's my fault for even considering it, --

PETER: Hey! Look at me.

NATHAN: --taking them on.

PETER: This is—this is not your fault. This is Dad's fault, okay? And you know, you know that this is not gonna end.

NATHAN: If ... If I agree to take the DA's case, will you give a deposition?

CHARLIE: (rolls her eyes) Okay. So because you knew this baseball team was gonna win, I'm supposed to believe you're from the future.

HIRO: There is an ancient Japanese tradition, origami. Folding paper.

CHARLIE: I read about that. Yeah, it says if a person can fold 1,000 cranes, you'll be granted one wish.

HIRO: Yes.

CHANDRA SURESH: Well ... The good news is you're healthy.

GABRIEL GRAY: Well, maybe tomorrow. We're still going to the CT scan, right?

CHANDRA SURESH: I think we should prepare for the possibility that I may have been wrong. You may not have a special ability.

HAL SANDERS: Details? If you're trying to ask me for something, it's already yours. It's a man's God-give right to dote on his grandson.

(Chandra nods awkwardly.)

MR. BENNET: How old is she?

CHANDRA SURESH: She ... was five.

(He turns away.)

MR. BENNET: I'm so sorry.

CHANDRA SURESH: Mutations are much like cancers or diseases, meant to eliminate a species. Shanti had a genetic anomaly, and that was the portal into my research. My hope is that no one will suffer as she did.

MR. BENNET: If you do figure this out, what happens then?

CHANDRA SURESH: We can change the world. Give people hope for the future. That is your daughter's destiny. I'd, um, very much like to meet her.

MR. BENNET: You can see how that might be a problem. For my family?

CHANDRA SURESH: Yes, of course.

MR. BENNET: Let ... let me think on this and the best way to proceed.

CHANDRA SURESH: Well, I appreciate your coming, Mr. Bennet.

(They shake hands.)

MR. BENNET: It was educational.

CUT TO:



[INT. (LAS VEGAS) HAL’S HOTEL ROOM]

(Hal is on the bed reading a book, "The Sirens of the Titans" by Kurt Vonegut, Jr. There’s a knock at the door.)

(Hal gets up and looks through the peephole. He opens the door.)

(Jessica walks in. She looks around the hotel room.)

HAL SANDERS: You do remember.

JESSICA: Oh, how could I forget?

(She moves quickly. She turns. With one hand, she grabs Hal by the neck and slams him up against the armoire.)

HAL SANDERS: Nicole!

JESSICA: (shakes her head) I’m not Niki. It's me, Daddy, Jessica.

(With one hand around his neck, she lifts him up.)

JESSICA: The daughter that you threw beer bottles at. The daughter that you choked. The daughter that you killed.

HAL SANDERS: I didn't kill anyone!

JESSICA: No ... it was an accident. And they left Niki with you to be your punching bag.

HAL SANDERS: I came to apologize, Nicole.

JESSICA: Apologize? You don't apologize to Nicole. You apologize to me.

(She lets him go, pushes him up against the armoire, grabs and turns him. She shoves her elbow in his neck.)

JESSICA: Niki doesn't remember. But I do. Someone had to be there to protect her. I remember the stink of alcohol on your breath. I took every punch, so that she wouldn't have to.

(His nose is bleeding.)

HAL SANDERS: You are not Jessica.

JESSICA: Oh, you have no idea who I am.

(She pushes him toward the bed. He falls backward on the mattress. Jessica advances on him.)

HAL SANDERS: Nicole ... you need help.

JESSICA: You're right, she does. I thought she had learned to protect herself, but no such luck.

(Jessica holds up the blank check.)

JESSICA: You're going to go away and never come back.

(She takes the blank check and shoves it in his mouth. Jessica leaves the room.)

FADE OUT.

(COMMERCIAL SET)



FADE IN:

[INT. (ODESSA, TX) BENNET RESIDENCE – CLAIRE’S BEDROOM -- DAY]

(Claire is in her cheerleader uniform and is busy practicing her cheerleader moves in front of her mirror. Mr. Bennet stands in the doorway watching her.)

MR. BENNET: (interrupts) Cheerleading, huh?

(Claire stops. Mr. Bennet walks in carrying a stuffed animal.)

CLAIRE: What do you think?

MR. BENNET: I think I can't wait to go to my first game. (She gives him a hug. He looks at the stuffed animal.) Ah, well, you might be getting a little bit old for the bears from around the world, but ...

CLAIRE: No, I'm not.

(She takes the bear from him.)

MR. BENNET: No?

CLAIRE: I love my bears.

MR. BENNET: Aww.

(Claire adds the bear to the large mound of other bears on her bed.)

CLAIRE: Am I a terrible person?

MR. BENNET: What are you talking about?

CLAIRE: I wanna be a cheerleader. I mean, I've worked hard to be a cheerleader, but ... sometimes Jackie can just be a ...

MR. BENNET: A bitch.

(She looks at him, surprised. They both chuckle.)

CLAIRE: Yeah, a bitch.

MR. BENNET: No, it's your actions that make you good or bad, cheerleader or not. Let's take a look at that hand.

(Claire unwraps the bandage around her hand.)

CLAIRE: The pain went away, but I think it's still kinda ...

(She finds her hand completely healed. Mr. Bennet looks at it.)

MR. BENNET: That's healed really nicely.

CUT TO:



[INT. (LOS ANGELES) PARKMAN RESIDENCE – BEDROOM -- DAY]

(Matt takes his shoes off. Janice is waking up in bed.)

JANICE PARKMAN: Hey, baby. (Matt rubs his eyes.) You hungry? Thought I'd make some eggs ... carbonara style. Does that sound good?

MATT: I didn't pass again.

JANICE PARKMAN: You studied so hard.

MATT: It's not about the answers, Jan. I know all the answers.

JANICE PARKMAN: I don't know why you don't just tell them the truth.

MATT: Yeah, I'll just waltz in and tell them I can barely read, half the words I see backwards. There's a good career move.

(She gets up and hugs him from behind.)

JANICE PARKMAN: My baby.

MATT: Don't.

JANICE PARKMAN: (kisses his cheek) Come on. A little morning sex, some eggs ... and everything's gonna seem so much better.

MATT: How can you wanna kiss me?

JANICE PARKMAN: (v.o., thinking) You're my hero. Don't you know that?

(Janice turns Matt to look at her.)

JANICE PARKMAN: Hey. You are everything that I want.

MATT: (scoffs) Yeah, I'm your hero. I'm a hero. Look at me. Eleven years and I am still directing traffic.

CUT TO:



[INT. (NEW YORK) PETER’S RESIDENCE -- DAY]

(Peter is putting on his tie.)



[CU: DOOR #1407]

(Nathan knocks.)



[INT. PETER’S RESIDENCE -- DAY]

(Peter opens the door.)

PETER: Hey. I'm ready to give the deposition.

NATHAN: There isn't going to be one.

(Peter puts his jacket on.)

PETER: What are you talking about? Can't back out now, we gotta tell the DA everything. About Linderman, about Dad, all of it.

NATHAN: Dad's dead.

(Peter stops.)

NATHAN: He had a heart attack this morning.

(Peter exhales forcefully.)

NATHAN: Take comfort in the fact that he didn't know his sons were about to stab him in the back.

CUT TO:



[EXT. (TEXAS) BURNT TOAST DINER -- NIGHT]

(Charlie stands near the curb with a serious look on her face. Hiro rushes out of the diner.)

HIRO: Charlie! Charlie! Twenty-four hour Samurai Film Festival at the Drafthouse in Austin!

CHARLIE: Austin? That's over three hundred miles away.

HIRO: We can make it in time to see Yojimbo, Seven Samurai, and Hidden Fortress. It'd be perfect for our trip to Japan!

(He grabs Charlie by the hand and leads her toward the parked buses.)

CHARLIE: Mmm.

(He stops when he sees her hesitation.)

HIRO: You still do want to go?

CHARLIE: Yeah. Oh, yeah. No, it's not that. It's just, um, ever since I met you ... I don't know, you just, you've made me so happy.

HIRO: You make me happy too.

CHARLIE: Well, it's more than that. I don't let people get very close.

(He looks at her. Charlie closes her eyes for a moment, then continues.)

CHARLIE: There's a blood clot in my brain ... inches away from an aneurysm. I’m dying.

HIRO: But ... I'm supposed to save you.

CHARLIE: Oh, you did. You did. Before you got here, I'd decided to give up. But you have made me feel more alive, and more full of joy than I could have ever imagined. Hiro. (in Japanese) I love you.

(Hiro smiles back at her.)

(They lean in close to kiss. Hiro closes his eyes.)



[CU: HIRO’S MOUTH]

HIRO: Charlie?



[HIRO]

(Hiro opens his eyes.)

EMPLOYEES: Ichi, ni, san, shi, go, roku --

[EXT. (TOKYO) ROOFTOP – DAY -- CONTINUOUS]

HIRO: No ...

(Hiro finds himself in the center of a group of employees as they exercise.)

EMPLOYEES: Shichi, hachi, ichi, ni --

HIRO: Charlie?

(TOP VIEW DOWN: The employees stand in perfect rows and columns on the roof of the building.)

EMPLOYEES: San, shi, go --

(The exercising and counting continues.)

HIRO: (shouts) Charlie!

(Hiro runs and shouts.)

HIRO: (shouts) Charlie!

(A co-worker sees Hiro.)

MALE EMPLOYEE: Hiro. (subtitled) Aren’t you and Ando supposed to be ... on vacation in America?

HIRO: (subtitled) I jumped.

(Hiro looks around the exercising group.)

HIRO: (subtitled) Damn! I have to get back to her. (desperate) I have to get back to Charlie.

(Hiro closes his eyes and concentrates hard. When he opens his eyes, he’s still there.)

(He closes his eyes again and concentrates hard. When he opens his eyes, he’s still there.)

(Hiro despairs.)

FADE OUT.

(COMMERCIAL SET)



FADE IN:

[INT. (BROOKLYN, NY) GRAY & SONS -- DAY]

(Gabriel is back working on a watch. He puts the short hand on the 9, the long hand on the 10 and the second hand on the 9. The front door opens. Brian Davis walks in.)

GABRIEL GRAY (SYLAR): Can I help you?

BRIAN DAVIS: Yeah, um, somebody called me? My name is Brian Davis.

INSERT: VARIOUS FLASHES of the post-it note with BRIAN DAVIS’ name and address on the folder, Gabriel swiping the post-it note and looking at it on the sidewalk.

BACK TO SCENE.

(Gabriel stands up.)

GABRIEL GRAY (SYLAR): Yes, I called you. My name is ...

(He turns and looks at the watch he’s working on. It’s at 8:30:22. The date in the square is "2". He sees the name on the watchface and takes it.)

GABRIEL GRAY (SYLAR): My name is Sylar. Gabriel Sylar.

SHORT TIME CUT TO:



(Brian Davis shows Gabriel his ‘power’ and moves the cup along the countertop. Gabriel watches with interest.)

GABRIEL GRAY (SYLAR): It's incredible.

BRIAN DAVIS: Can you make it go away?

GABRIEL GRAY (SYLAR): Why would you wanna do that?

BRIAN DAVIS: I don't know what this is. Or who I might hurt. I-I don't want it.

(Gabriel looks at Brian.)

GABRIEL GRAY (SYLAR): You're broken.

BRIAN DAVIS: What?

(Gabriel picks up Chandra’s book and hands it to Brian as he walks behind him. Brian looks at the book.)

GABRIEL GRAY (SYLAR): Suresh was right. It's so clear now. How it all works, pieces fitting together. It is in the brain.

BRIAN DAVIS: So you can help.

(Gabriel looks down at the crystal rock on the counter. He picks it up. Behind him, we note the clock logo etched in the shop window glass is at 11:53.)

GABRIEL GRAY (SYLAR): Don't worry, Brian, I can fix it. It's an evolutionary imperative.

(He smashes the crystal rock on the back of Brian’s head. He goes down with a thud. Sylar puts on his watchmaker’s glasses and looks at Brian on the floor in a pool of blood.)

CUT TO:



[INT. ROOM]

(Mr. Bennet talks with Eden.)

MR. BENNET: Whatever bad you've done in the past, it's over. You have a rare opportunity to start again, to rewrite the past, to do better. But if you're not interested, we could just put you back in your old life. Odds are you'd be dead in a week.

(The Haitian sits at the far end of the room.)

EDEN MCCAIN: What do you want me to do?

MR. BENNET: There's a professor. Dr. Suresh. He has a list of names. You're going to get Claire Bennet's name off that list.

CUT TO:



[INT. (NEW YORK) CHANDRA’S APARTMENT -- DAY]

(Gabriel is back in the apartment and moves a glass across the countertop as Chandra watches.)

(Chandra turns and looks at Gabriel. Suddenly, the glass flies across the room. It smashes o.s. Gabriel isn’t wearing his usual glasses.)

GABRIEL GRAY (SYLAR): I'm sorry about the glass.

CHANDRA SURESH: (amazed) It's -- just glass.

(Gabriel stands up.)

GABRIEL GRAY (SYLAR): About the other day ... I should've behaved myself. I was uncalled for, I'm sorry.

CHANDRA SURESH: You were angry. A man can say and do the most awful things when he's angry.

GABRIEL GRAY (SYLAR): Well, I'm different now. I feel I've been given a chance to start over. A new life, new identity. New purpose.

CHANDRA SURESH: I came halfway around the world looking for proof and threw him out the door. No one returns my phone calls anymore. They all think I'm insane.

GABRIEL GRAY (SYLAR): I don't. (He puts a hand on Chandra’s shoulder, then turns and points to the map) These people are all out there waiting to be told that they are important. Waiting to unlock their true potential. I know it. I can feel them. We'll find them together. We are the future.

WHITE FLASH TO:



[INT. (TEXAS) BURNT TOAST DINER]

CAPTION:
      PRESENT DAY
      MIDLAND, TEXAS

(OPEN on the photo of Hiro and Charlie on the bulletin board. The mini-shrine to Charlie is still there. Ando stands in front of the shrine and glances at his watch. He sighs.)

(Lightning flashes and thunder rumbles. It sounds like its raining outside.)

(The front door bell jingles and Hiro walks in.)

ANDO: Hiro?

(Hiro stands in the doorway. Lightning flashes behind him; thunder rumbles.)

ANDO: (shouts) Hiro!

(Ando rushes up to Hiro and hugs him. The door closes behind Hiro.)

ANDO: (subtitled) You’re okay!

HIRO: (subtitled) No, I’m not okay.

ANDO: (subtitled) What are you talking about? You teleported back.

(Hiro shakes his head, no.)

HIRO: (subtitled) I took the bus.

ANDO: (subtitled) Eh?

HIRO: (subtitled) I teleported. Forward. Backward. But, I couldn’t save her. I couldn’t save Charlie.

ANDO: (subtitled) So, try again.

HIRO: (subtitled) It won’t work. This power ... it’s bigger than me. I can’t change the past. No matter how hard I wish.

(He shows Ando an origami crane.)

HIRO: (subtitled) I failed.

(Hiro walks past Ando and heads over to the mini-shrine.)

CUT TO:



[INT. (INDIA) MOHINDER’S APARTMENT -- DAY]

MOHINDER:  (sighs) You found them.

VARIOUS CLIPS OF 1X09: Homecoming

MOHINDER: (v.o.) Was the die cast from the very beginning?

MOHINDER: (v.o.) Or is it in our own hands to alter the course of destiny?



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

(The Haitian and Eden capture Sylar.)

MOHINDER: (v.o.) Of all our abilities, it is free will that truly makes us unique.

(The Haitian puts his hand over Sylar’s face. Sylar falls to the ground with a THUD.)

(Eden takes off Sylar’s cap.)



[EXT. SIDE ROAD CAFE -- NIGHT

(DL hurries around the car to get in.)

MOHINDER: (v.o.) With it, we have a tiny, but potent, chance to deny fate.

[REVERSE VIEW: RIFLE SITE]

(Jessica looks through the rifle site.)

MOHINDER: (v.o.) And only with it can we find our way back to being human.

(She has DL in her crosshairs. She squeezes the trigger.)

(A shot fires.)



[INT. BURNT TOAST DINER – NIGHT]

(Hiro places the origami crane on the shrine. Ando stands next to him.)

HIRO: I loved her.

(Ando puts a hand around his friend’s shoulder.)

FADE TO BLACK.
