Peter est dans la rue, à la suite de Claude Rains, l’homme invisible. Il l’appelle, mais l’homme ne se retourne pas. Peter l’attrape par le bras, et Claude, tout d’abord surpris que quelqu’un puisse le voir, s’énerve alors contre lui, le plaquant contre un poteau. Les deux hommes sont invisibles, car Peter a copié son pouvoir. Puis il le relâche, et il semble penser que Peter fait partit d’un groupe d’individus, dont il ne dit rien de plus. Il s’éloigne, mais Peter le suit, en lui posant pleins de questions. Ils bousculent quelques personnes au passage. Peter lui dit qu’il l’a vu dans son rêve et il est persuadé que Claude en sait beaucoup sur ses pouvoirs, et qu’il peut l’aider. Il ajoute que toute la ville est en danger, mais Claude s’en moque. Peter lui dit que s’il s’en va, il le suivra, et Claude le met en garde de ne pas essayer. Il s’en va, et Peter réapparaît au milieu de la rue.


Niki est allongée sur le sol de sa cellule capitonnée. Un médecin lui fait une piqûre. Elle s’évanouie.

Matt et Janice sont assis dans leur salon. Elle pense à différentes choses et Matt trouve à quoi elle pense à chaque fois. Elle a encore du mal à croire que son mari peut entendre les pensées des gens.


Mr Bennet entre dans la pièce où ils détiennent Sylar. Celui-ci est allongé sur un lit dans un état lamentable, retenu par des sangles, et prit de convulsions. Un médecin est à coté de lui, il l’examine. Il pense que Sylar ne va pas tenir le coup, et qu’ils doivent arrêter de le droguer le temps qu’il se remette un peu. Mais Mr Bennet ordonne au médecin de continuer, et que si Sylar fait un arrêt cardiaque, il doit le ranimer, et recommencer autant de fois que nécessaire.


Ando se dispute avec le gardien d’un parking car il ne veut pas payer autant d’argent pour une journée de parking. Hiro, à coté de lui, tente de se servir de son pouvoir sur une petite horloge, mais il ne se passe rien. Ando paye le gardien, et ils partent chercher leur voiture. Hiro continue de parler de son épée, et du fait qu’elle lui servira peut-être pour tuer l’homme-bombe. A ce moment, Ando remarque un homme qui attend près de leur voiture. Il est armé. Hiro et Ando partent en courant, mais une autre voiture leur barre le chemin. Ils s’enfuient.


Mohinder est dans son appartement, en train d’observer quelque chose au microscope, quand on frappe à sa porte. C’est Nathan Petrelli. Mohinder se rappelle de leur dernière rencontre, quand les hommes de Nathan l’ont empêché de s’approcher de lui alors qu’il voulait lui parler de son pouvoir. Il lui explique qu’il est à la recherche de Peter, et Mohinder lui dit que lui aussi. Nathan lui demande de lui expliquer ce qui se passe chez Peter. Mohinder lui parle de la liste de 36 personnes, établie par Chandra Suresh, et que les noms de Nathan et Peter y sont inscrit. Nathan lui coupe la parole et lui dit qu’il n’est pas venu pour parler de lui. Mohinder lui explique que l’ADN spécifique de Peter permet un mélange des séquences afin de copier les capacités de ceux qui sont autour de lui, et qu’il y a un danger qu’il absorbe trop de pouvoir. Il ajout qu’il y aurait un moyen de développer un inhibiteur spécifique, afin d’aider Peter a ne pas copier trop de pouvoir qu’il ne pourrait pas contrôler. Mais il doit pour cela étudier Peter de plus prêt, et il fait comprendre à Nathan qu’ils doivent le trouver ensemble. Ce dernier n’est pas d’accord dans un premier temps, mais il cède, et ils partent à la recherche de Peter.


Peter est sur le toit d’un immeuble. Il a suivit Claude, qui est entrain de s’occuper de pigeons. On apprend qu’ils sont sur l’immeuble qui appartenait à Charles Deveaux, et Peter trouve étrange la coïncidence entre le fait qu’il ait travaillé là, et que Claude y habite. Peter lui redemande alors s’il peut l’aider à contrôler son pouvoir comme il contrôle son invisibilité, mais Claude lui dit qu’il n’y a rien a apprendre, que c’est comme ça. Peter insiste, il lui dit que New York va exploser, ainsi que lui, qu’il l’a vu dans son rêve, et qu’il a besoin de son aide s’il ne veut pas mourir. Claude lui dit qu’il peut le tuer maintenant, comme ça il résoudrait son problème d’explosion, puis il s’en va à nouveau, laissant Peter seul.


Claire et Zach sont chez la jeune fille, entrain de fouiller dans l’ordinateur de la famille Bennet, à la recherche d’informations sur les activités secrètes du père de Claire. Mais ils ne trouvent rien. A ce moment Mr Bennet rentre de son travail. Zach se dépêche de fermer les fichiers, mais il n’a pas le temps d’éteindre l’ordinateur. Ils retournent dans la cuisine et font semblant de travailler. Mr Bennet est surprit de voir Zach avec sa fille, et Claire lui explique qu’ils se sont retrouvés ensemble pour un projet scolaire. Mr Bennet remarque l’ordinateur allumé, et Claire lui dit qu’ils étaient entrain de faire des recherches sur Internet car ils ont un exposé sur le lamantin. Zach l’aide à mentir en confirmant ce qu’elle dit. Mr Bennet demande à Zach s’il peut parler à Claire en privé pendant quelques minutes, et la jeune fille lui dit de l’attendre à l’étage dans sa chambre. Puis son père lui fait comprendre sa surprise de la voir avec Zach, et elle fait semblant de détester le fait de devoir travailler avec lui. Il lui rappelle qu’ils étaient pourtant amis étant plus jeunes. Elle sourit et monte dans sa chambre. Zach lui dit qu’elle s’est bien rattraper, et il lui demande ce qu’elle compte faire maintenant. Claire lui dit qu’elle doit parler à quelqu’un qui a des réponses, et elle accroche un carillon à sa fenêtre. Il s’agit d’un signal pour prévenir son interlocuteur qu’elle a besoin de lui parler.


Janice n’arrive pas à croire que Matt s’est fait enlevé. Elle semble un petit peu perdue antre toutes les histoires que lui raconte Matt, sur son pouvoir, son boulot avec le FBI, et le fait qu’il veuille à tout prix démasquer Mr Bennet et retrouver Sylar. Elle pense pour elle-même qu’il devrait prévenir le FBI, il l’entend, et ajoute qu’il ne peut pas le leur dire car il pense déjà qu’il est dingue. Une fois de plus elle est surprise qu’il sache ce qu’elle a en tête. Il ajoute qu’il doit aller se préparer car il a un entretient au sujet des erreurs qu’il a commis avec le FBI. Il va dans la salle de bain, et remarque que le robinet ne coule plus. Janice arrive et avant qu’elle est eue le temps de dire quoique ce soit, il la rassure et lui dit qu’il va appeler un plombier. Il s’excuse de ne pas pouvoir contrôler son pouvoir quand elle lui reproche d’être toujours dans sa tête.


Hiro et Ando sont allongés sous une voiture. Ils ont réussit à semer leurs poursuivants. Ils spéculent sur les intentions de ces hommes. Hiro pense que c’est à cause lui, car il est spécial. Puis on entend un bip, et la voiture sous laquelle ils se cachaient démarche. Ils se relèvent, mais les hommes le retrouvent. Hiro s’enfuit, mais ils attrapent Ando. Hiro ne pouvant pas abandonner son ami, il revient sur ses pas, et les hommes l’emmènent à son tour.


Niki se réveille dans sa cellule. Une femme est assise en face d’elle. Elle se présente comme étant le Dr Witherson, la psychiatre qui a été assignée à son dossier. Niki lui dit qu’elle ne devrait pas être ici, car ce n’est pas un endroit sûr, et le docteur lui dit qu’elle peut remettre la camisole si ça la rassure. Niki lui dit que seule la drogue peut empêcher Jessica d’être violente, que la camisole ne sert à rien, et elle réclame une nouvelle dose. Le Dr Witherson lui dit alors qu’elle sait tout d’elle, et de Jessica. Elle lui parle de sa sœur, de son mariage avec DL, de son site Internet. Niki réclame une nouvelle fois une autre dose. La femme n’y fait pas attention, et elle lui dit qu’elle souffre d’un cas classique de trouble de personnalités multiples. Elle semble vraiment prête à l’aider, mais Niki ne veut rien entendre. La psychologue part.


DL est au téléphone avec l’un de ses amis. Il lui demande s’il peut lui emprunter de l’argent, car il arrive à peine à payer son loyer. Mais la réponse semble être négative, et DL raccroche, légèrement démoralisé. Micah arrive et lui demande s’il a vu la boite pour son déjeuner. Ils se disputent à cause de ça, et Micah s’en va. DL le rattrape et Micah lui reproche de ne pas s’occuper de lui aussi bien que sa mère, alors que c’était difficile pour elle aussi. Il s’en va à l’école.


Claire est de retour à la décharge, quand arrive l’Haïtien. Il lui fait remarquer que le fait de se voir est dangereux, et qu’elle ne doit l’appeler qu’en cas d’extrême urgence. Il lui demande si son père soupçonne quelque chose, mais elle répond que non, et que c’est bien ça le problème. Elle lui parle du fait qu’il lui mente avec autant de facilité, et qu’elle doit rester souriante alors que la situation est très dure pour elle. Il rétorque qu’il peut toujours lui prendre sa mémoire si elle le veut. Elle ne fait pas attention à cette remarque, et lui demande s’il sait ce qui est arrivé à ses parents biologiques. Il lui apprend qu’il ne sait rien sur son vrai père, mais que sa mère est morte dans une explosion 14 ans auparavant, d’après ce que lui a raconter Mr Bennet. Il lui dit qu’il ne veut plus avoir ce genre de conversation avec elle, et qu’elle doit oublier ses vrais parents.


Mr Bennet rentre chez lui. Il demande à sa femme où est Claire et elle lui répond qu’elle est avec Zach entrain de travailler sur leur projet à la bibliothèque. Il semble inquiet pour sa fille, mais Mme Bennet lui dit qu’il devrait être plus inquiet au sujet de Lyle, car il a des absences depuis quelques temps. Elle s’en va. Le téléphone de Mr Bennet sonne. C’est le médecin de Sylar, qui lui dit qu’il a fait ce qu’il peut, mais que Sylar est mort. Mr Bennet lui ordonne de préparer le corps pour l’emmener, et il raccroche.


Le médecin commence par détacher les sangles qui retenaient le corps de Gabriel. C’est à ce moment que Sylar ouvre les yeux. On entend le cliquetis d’une horloge.


Zach et Claire sont sur Internet. Ils recherchent tout ce qu’ils peuvent sur l’explosion qui a tué la mère de Claire. Ils découvrent qu’elle s’appelait Meredith Gordon, et que sa petite fille de 18 mois est morte dans l’explosion elle aussi. Ils réalisent qu’il s’agit de Claire. Elle se demande ce qu’elle est censée faire de toutes ses informations, et il lui dit qu’elle a peut-être de la famille quelque part, qui pourrait lui dire ce qui est arrivé à son vrai père.


Matt est assis en face de trois commissaires de police qui étudient son rapport. Ils critiquent la déclaration que Matt a fait pour mettre dans son dossier, notamment car il accuse Mr Bennet de détenir un tueur en série doté de super pouvoirs, et qu’il n’a aucune preuve. Matt utilise son pouvoir pour dire à ses supérieurs ce qu’ils veulent entendre, mais son plan ne fonctionne pas comme il l’aurait souhaité, et il se retrouve suspendu pendant six mois du service actif.

Matt rentre chez lui. Janice l’appelle, elle a l’air d’avoir besoin d’aide. Il y a une fuite dans la salle de bain.


Hiro et Ando sont toujours dans la fourgonnette avec leurs kidnappeurs. Ils se demandent ce que ces hommes leurs veulent, jusqu’à ce que l’un d’eux dise à Hiro qu’il sait tout de sa soi-disant mission de sauver le monde, et tout de lui. Puis il lui parle en Japonais. Hiro, qui était jusque là resté calme, commence à avoir des inquiétudes. L’homme ajoute qu’il travaille pour un homme qui a de véritables pouvoirs, et qui veut que les deux amis arrêtent de faire ce qu’ils font. Il leurs donnent deux billets en première classe pour Tokyo, mais Hiro les refuse.


Peter est dans son appartement. Il rassemble ses affaires. Nathan et Mohinder entrent alors chez lui et lui disent qu’ils sont venus pour l’aider. Son frère lui dit que ce n’est pas une bonne idée de s’enfuir, et de risquer de blesser d’autres personnes. Mohinder lui explique qu’avec un peu de temps il pourrait trouver un moyen d’aider Peter et de régler ses problèmes pour contrôler son pouvoir. Mais Peter ne le croit pas, et il lui dit qu’il n’a pas de temps à lui accorder de toute façon. Nathan le menace de le faire enfermer comme un malade mental, si c’est pour sa propre sécurité. Peter pose sa valise, et regarde Mohinder qui s’éloigne. Il murmure à Nathan qu’il ne peut pas tout arranger pour lui, mais Nathan lui demande de prendre juste un peu de temps pour en parler. Peter lui dit alors qu’il est d’accord, et au moment où Nathan baisse sa garde, Peter en profite pour s’enfuir. Il sort en courant de son appartement, Nathan et Mohinder pas très loin derrière lui. Mais arrivé dans le couloir, il n’y a plus de traces de Peter, il y a seulement le garde qu’avait posté Nathan dans le couloir. Ce dernier lui dit qu’il n’a pas vu Peter sortir de chez lui. Il s’est simplement volatilisé. Mohinder remarque une fenêtre ouverte, et ils quittent alors le couloir vers la sortie. On voit alors Claude tenant Peter, une main plaquée sur la bouche du jeune homme, dans le couloir entrain de regarder les trois autres partir.


De retour dans son appartement, Peter demande à Claude pourquoi il l’a suivit. Ce dernier se sert dans le frigo de Peter comme s’il était chez lui, et il lui dit qu’il a l’air si sûr de lui quand il affirme qu’une catastrophe va se produire, qu’il a décidé de l’aider à ne pas tuer tout le monde. Claude fait référence à d’autres personnes comme Peter qu’il aurait aidé à contrôler leurs pouvoirs, mais il n’en dit pas plus. Puis il dit à Peter de le suivre, et ils s’en vont.


Matt a finit par réparer la plomberie dans leur salle de bain. Il annonce à Janice qu’il a été suspendu. Il lui dit qu’il pensait que son don pouvait lui faciliter la vie en quelque sorte, mais qu’au lieu de ça il se retrouve au chômage, et il est sur le point de perdre son mariage. Janice essaye de le réconforter, en lui disant qu’ils vont devoir apprendre à se faire un peu plus confiance, et que leur mariage tiendra le coup. Puis elle lui dit qu’elle a un cadeau à lui faire. Elle lui demande ce à quoi elle pense. Matt commence à sourire, car elle lui dit qu’elle est enceinte par la pensée.


Niki est allongée dans sa cellule. DL passe à travers le mur et vient s’asseoir à coté d’elle. Il la prend dans ses bras. Elle lui demande comment va Micah, et DL lui parle des problèmes qu’il a pour tout gérer. Il ajoute qu’il veut essayer de la faire sortir d’ici, mais Niki lui dit qu’il doit s’accrocher parce qu’elle risque de rester dans cet endroit pendant encore longtemps. Elle lui conseil de parler avec son fils, et que ça s’arrangera. Puis il s’en va.


Micah est seul dans la rue. Il arrive devant un distributeur automatique. Il pose sa main sur la machine, et des billets commencent à sortir. Il les prend en souriant.


Claire est au téléphone dans sa chambre. Elle parle avec Zach, des personnes qu’elle a déjà contactées qui s’appellent « Gordon » et qui vivent à Kermit. Son père frappe à la porte, et elle se dépêche de ranger ses affaires et de raccrocher. Elle dit à son père qu’elle était entrain de parler avec Zach à propos de leur projet pour les cours. Mr Bennet lui montre un livre sur les lamantins qu’il lui a rapporté, et Claire lui montre alors qu’elle a déjà le même avec elle. Ils discutent quelques instants de choses pas trop importantes, et il lui dit qu’il sera toujours là pour elle, avant de partir. Il remarque aussi le carillon accroché à la fenêtre.


Le Dr Witherson vient voir Niki, à la demande de cette dernière, qui a changé d’avis à cause de Micah. Elle accepte l’aide de la psychiatre, et elle veut se débarrasser de Jessica. Le Dr Witherson lui dit que ce qui pourrait aider, serait qu’elle parle avec Jessica. Niki refuse catégoriquement. La femme se lève, et au moment de partir, Niki la rappelle.


Micah rentre chez lui. DL est en colère car il s’inquiétait pour lui. Il lui dit qu’il a des problèmes pour payer leur loyer, ainsi que pour être un bon père, mais que s’ils font des efforts tous les deux, les choses iront en s’arrangeant. Micah s’excuse, puis il ouvre son sac et fait tomber tous les billets. DL lui demande où il a trouvé tout cet argent, et Micah lui dit que lui et sa mère ont des secrets, et que lui aussi il en a un.


Hiro et Ando arrivent finalement à destination. Ils vont rencontrer l’homme pour lequel travaillent leurs kidnappeurs. La porte de la fourgonnette s’ouvre, et Hiro est surprit de découvrir son père en face de lui.


Claire compose un numéro. Une femme décroche. Claire demande à parler à une personne qui connaîtrait une certaine Meredith Gordon, décédée environs 14 ans auparavant. La femme lui demande comment elle connaît le nom de Meredith Gordon, et ce qu’elle lui veut. Claire lui avoue qu’elle pense être la fille de Meredith. Son interlocutrice lui dit que Meredith n’avait qu’une fille et qu’elle est morte dans l’explosion. Claire lui explique qu’elle croit être cette fille, et qu’elle cherche à avoir des informations sur sa mère. La femme lui répond qu’elle a fait le bon numéro, car elle est Meredith Gordon. On vit alors Meredith mettre une cigarette dans sa bouche, et faire jaillir des petites flammes du bout de ses doigts pour l’allumer.


Mr Bennet arrive pour récupérer le corps de Sylar. La table est recouverte d’un grand drap blanc. Mr Bennet entre dans la pièce et soulève le drap. Le corps du médecin apparaît. Puis il se retourne, et voit Gabriel debout derrière lui, entrain de lui sourire. Sylar le regarde dans les yeux, et il lui demande comment va Claire. Mr Bennet reste bouche bée.

CLAUDE: Me? I'm no one. I'm the Invisible Man. I'm Claude Rains. Now get away from me. Forget you ever saw me.

(Peter grabs Claude and stops him.)

PETER: Yeah, but you know. What's happening to me?

(Claude twists out of Peter’s grip.)

PETER: What is this? What -- listen, I found you. I need you to help me.

CLAUDE: Why'd I want to do that?

PETER: Because we're in danger. This entire city is in danger. It was in my dream. People die. We die. I don't know when, but it happens.

CLAUDE: Then you'd better leave town.

(Claude starts to leave. Peter grabs him.)

PETER: Hey, where are you going? You can't hide from me.

CLAUDE: (scoffs) I'm the Invisible Man. I can walk around the corner and disappear forever.

PETER: Yeah, but--but I can see you. I'm gonna follow you.

CLAUDE: Smarter men than you have tried and have paid for it. (He pushes Peter back.) You stay away from me.

(He walks away as Peter watches.)

CLAUDE: (over his shoulder) And don't follow me.

(He turns and leaves, walking down the sidewalk away from Peter. As we watch, he vanishes before our very eyes and clips the shoulder of a woman pushing a cart. The woman looks up and sees nothing.)

(Further down the sidewalk, a trash can tips over, spewing garbage on the concrete.)

(A beat later, Peter materializes in the center of the sidewalk. People walking past him notice him there.)

(Peter looks out where Claude vanished and sighs.)

JANICE & MATT PARKMAN
LOS ANGELES

MATT: Umm -- Red elephant with blue stripes?

JANICE: Pin stripe or plaid?

(Matt chuckles.)

MATT: Honey, I can't see your thoughts. I can only hear 'em.

JANICE: Huh. Oh, I have a good one.

MATT: Wait, the ratty curtains in our old apartment?

(She slaps his arm and sits up to look at him.)

JANICE: Ugh. How do you do that?

ODESS, TEXAS

(Mr. Bennet stands outside the window looking into Sylar’s cell. He turns and steps away. Sylar is strapped to the bed. The doctor shines a penlight in his eyes. The door to the cell opens and Mr. Bennet walks in.)

(The doctor looks at the printout.)

DOCTOR: I'm not sure what's happening. His vitals are extremely irregular.

(Sylar appears out of it. He shivers and shakes sporadically.)

MR. BENNET: After all we've done to him, I'm not surprised. Keep him stabilized.

DOCTOR: There is another option.

MR. BENNET: Our instructions are to keep him alive. Do whatever it takes. If he crashes, you bring him back. Again and again. When he dies it'll be on my terms, not on his. Clear?

(We hold on Sylar.)

HIRO & ANDO

(Ando talks with the parking attendant.)

ANDO: But I'm only two minutes over.

PARKING ATTENDANT: That'll be $48.50.

ANDO: For one-day parking?

PARKING ATTENDANT: Hey, you want your car back or not?

(Ando sighs and digs into his pockets to pay.)

(Hiro peers into the attendant’s booth and concentrates on the small clock inside. It reads 10:48. The clock continues, its second hand ticking rhythmically.)

(Hiro concentrates harder on the clock. The second hand continues to advance.)

(He grits his teeth and tries harder.)

(It doesn’t work.)

HIRO: (subtitled) Darn.

(The parking attendant gives Ando the car keys. Ando takes the keys and they head into the lot.)

HIRO: (subtitled) My power is lost until I get the sword. It focused the samurai Kensei’s power. It will do the same for me.

ANDO: (subtitled) But Hiro, if you have no power, how can we steal the sword?

(They start up the stairs.)

HIRO: (subtitled) I will find a way. That sword is my destiny.

(CUT TO: They walk on the next floor.)

HIRO: (subtitled) A samurai’s weapon must be used with honor. And respect. This sword has many lessons to teach.

ANDO: (subtitled) Swords are for killing. That’s why they’re sharp.

HIRO: (subtitled) Maybe I use the sword to kill bomb-man. Is it my destiny to kill this man?

(Ando sees something in front of them and stops Hiro.)

ANDO: (subtitled) Hiro, wait.

(There’s a man standing near their car.)

HIRO: (subtitled) What is it?

(The man turns around and spots them. The man takes out his phone and makes a call. Ando doesn’t like it.)

ANDO: (subtitled) That man, waiting by our car ...

(The man finishes his call and closes his phone. He stares at Ando and Hiro.)

HIRO: (subtitled) He doesn’t look very friendly.

(The man takes a gun out of his holster and heads toward them.)

ANDO: (subtitled) He has a gun. Do something!

HIRO: (subtitled) I have no power! Run!

(Ando and Hiro turn and run. A dark-colored van turns the corner, tires screeching. It heads toward them.)

(Ando waves the van down.)

ANDO: Help, there's a man chasing us!

(The van stops and another man gets out of the van. He looks just as dangerous as the first man.)

HIRO: Pinch. (subtitled) Uh-oh.

CAPTION:
MOHINDER SURESH
BROOKLYN

(Mohinder is looking through a microscope on a table he’s set up in the back room to serve as his make-shift lab.)

(There’s a knock at the front door. Mohinder stops, removes his latex gloves and heads to the front to answer the door.)

(He opens the door and finds Nathan standing there.)

NATHAN: Dr. Suresh? Do you remember me?

MOHINDER: Nathan Petrelli.

NATHAN: You yelled at my car.

MOHINDER: Yes, we met under unfortunate circumstances. I believe I came off as a deranged lunatic.

NATHAN: (nods) Do you mind if I come in?

(Mohinder lets him in. He closes the door behind him.)

NATHAN: I'm looking for my brother, Doctor.

MOHINDER: That makes two of us.

NATHAN: I'm sorry?

MOHINDER: I've been leaving messages for him for two days now.

NATHAN: Guess I'm at the wrong place then.

MOHINDER: I need to find him. The last time I heard, he was in Texas.

NATHAN: He made it home barely. Barely alive, and now he's run off again. Afraid that he's gonna somehow ... hurt people. Doctor, I, uh—possibly you could explain to me. What the hell's happening to him?

(Mohinder turns and heads into the back room.)

MOHINDER: Before his death, my father compiled a list: thirty-six individuals who carry a genetic marker which he discovered. (He shows Nathan the list.) A marker which he theorized gave these people certain abilities.

NATHAN: And my brother's one of them?

MOHINDER: As are you.

(Mohinder shows him a file folder. Nathan looks inside and is very quiet.)

NATHAN: I didn't come here to talk about me.

(Mohinder takes the file folder from him and puts it aside.)

MOHINDER: Fair enough. Peter's specific DNA allows for a blend. Like colors in a mosaic, resequencing itself to mimic the abilities of those around him.

NATHAN: Like a chameleon?

MOHINDER: More like a sponge. It's precisely why I've been studying him.

NATHAN: Could his condition become dangerous to himself or to other people?

MOHINDER: If he absorbs too much, or comes into contact with an unstable ability, then most definitely yes.

NATHAN: Can you fix it? Alter his genes somehow?

MOHINDER: Theoretically, it is possible to develop a specific site inhibitor. But look, I will know more when we find him.

NATHAN: We? Doctor, the last thing my brother needs is somebody feeding into his paranoia. But thank you.

(Nathan turns and re-enters the living room to get to the front door.)

MOHINDER: Mr. Petrelli.

(Mohinder grabs his shoulder and stops him.)

MOHINDER: Of all the people on that list, your brother may be the most important. If I can find him, study him, then I can do more than help him. I can help all of you. Now, give me a minute, and I'll get my coat.

(Mohinder leaves to get his coat. We hold on Nathan.)

[EXT. DEVEAUX BUILDING -- ROOFTOP -- DAY]

(Peter walks out onto the rooftop. Off screen there are clanging and banging noises.)

(Claude is standing in front of a bird coop.)

CLAUDE: I told you not to follow me.

PETER: I need help. (Peter looks around.) You live up here?

CLAUDE: You're not a fast learner, are you mate?

(Claude closes the bird coop door.)

PETER: I took care of a man who owned this building. His name was Charles Deveaux.

CLAUDE: Never heard of him.

PETER: You don't think that's strange? I worked here. The place where you live and keep your birds.

CLAUDE: I don't keep anything. I let 'em out once a day, they come back. Sounds like free will to me.


PETER: I need to learn how to control this. Like you do.

(He closes another coop door and kneels to open the next coop door.)

CLAUDE: What are you talking about? It can't be controlled.

PETER: There has to be some way. If -- if I don't, New York explodes. Okay? I explode.

CLAUDE: An exploding man, where'd you get that idea?

PETER: My dreams. This place. I found you for a reason. I think you're the one that has to teach me how to stop this.

CLAUDE: There's no such thing. (He closes the coop door.) No teaching. No Sunday school for the special. What I can do, you can't learn. You wake up in the morning, it's there. If you've got thin soup, then that's your supper. (He stands up.) Sorry, mate, that's the way it is.

(Peter grabs Claude as he walks past. Claude immediately shakes his hand off him.)

PETER: I'm trying not to die. There's got to be something you can do.

(Claude turns and grabs Peter by his shirt.)

CLAUDE: I can kill you myself right now. Solve your exploding problem here. Maybe that's why you dreamt me. Don't bother looking for me. You won't find me here again.

(Claude turns and leaves. Peter walks over to the edge of the roof, leans his hands on the wall and takes a deep breath.)

(Claire watches as Zach goes through Mr. Bennet’s home computer.)

ZACH: So what exactly am I looking for here?

CLAIRE: Anything my dad doesn't want us to find. You said you're good with computers.

ZACH: I make movies on my laptop.

CLAIRE: No, you're good at finding those holes in the Internet password-protected nanny blocker stuff.

ZACH: Shouldn't you be watching the doorway if your dad walks in?

CLAIRE: He's at work. It's just you, me, and Mr. Muggles.

(She indicates the dog sitting on the chair. Mr. Muggles grumbles.)

(Zach clicks on several windows.)

ZACH: There's nothing. There's not even any porn.

CLAIRE: Gross.

ZACH: I'm serious; this thing is totally clean.

(Zach continues to look through the directories.)

CLAIRE: No. My dad lied to me about my entire life. My biological parents. My ability. You can't just hide things like that. There's gotta be something on there.

ZACH: If your dad's the guy you're describing, I don't think he's gonna keep his secrets on the family computer.

(Mr. Muggles starts barking. He gets up, jumps off the chair and scrambles out of the room.

CLAIRE: Uh-oh. Shut it down.

ZACH: Oh-sh--. Okay

(Claire rushes out of the room. Zach closes the windows on the monitor. He finishes, gets up and follows Claire into the kitchen.)

(They scramble to stand casually in the kitchen. Mr. Muggles barks at the door. The front door opens and Mr. Bennet walks in, careful to not let Mr. Muggles out of the house.)

MR. BENNET: Okay, okay.

CLAIRE: I thought you were at work.

(He closes the front door and seems surprised to see Zach in the kitchen with Claire.)

MR. BENNET: Forgot my cell. Zachary. What a nice surprise to see you here.

ZACH: Yeah, it's biology class. We're lab partners now.

(He turns and notices that the computer is on.)

CLAIRE: (quickly) Yeah we were just doing some research on the Internet. We have a presentation on --

ZACH: The manatee, also known as the sea cow.

(Claire smiles at Zach’s save. Mr. Bennet watches them and smiles.)

MR. BENNET: Do you mind if I talk to Claire in private for a moment?

CLAIRE: (to Zach) You can wait in my room.

(Zach doesn’t know where it is.)

CLAIRE: It's upstairs. Second door on the right.

(Zach heads upstairs.)

MR. BENNET: So. You and Zach?

CLAIRE: (shakes her head) Ms. Gomez stuck us together. Must be some social experiment or something. Worst day ever.

MR. BENNET: Claire.

CLAIRE: What?

MR. BENNET: You two used to be friends. You might find you actually get along.

(Claire gives him a forced smile at the irony. Mr. Bennet smiles back. She turns and heads upstairs as well.)

MATT: Yes.

JANICE: And he--he did this to you?

(He stands up.)

MATT: Yeah. Yeah, and I gotta figure out how he did this. And I'm gonna take him and everybody with him down. That Haitian guy, all of 'em.

JANICE: Matt, I--I'm sorry. I've gotta say, this is all a little nuts. I mean, first the whole psychic thing. And now... Come on, you're telling me you're about to run off and chase some guy who works in a paper factory in Texas.

MATT: They did this to me, Janice. I need to find them. I have to figure out what this is all about.

JANICE: (v.o., thoughts) Maybe you could call the FBI.

MATT: No, I can't. I can't go to the FBI. They think I'm crazy. (sighs) I-I gotta get ready. I got a review hearing this morning. I'm about to get my ass handed to me by three captains.

(Matt heads inside. Janice stands up and follows him.)



[EXT. PARKMAN RESIDENCE – BATHROOM – DAY -- CONTINUOUS]

(Matt walks into the bathroom and turns on the tap. Water spurts out intermittently. Obviously, someone was supposed to call the plumber.)

(Matt fiddles with the tap. Behind him, Janice sighs. Matt looks up and sees her in the doorway.)

MATT: Yes, I will call the plumber today.

(She sighs and rolls his eyes.)

JANICE: Are you always gonna be in my head?

MATT: Well, I can't control this thing.

JANICE: You can't or you won't?

HIRO: (subtitled) The painting is valuable. Maybe they’re trying to steal it.

ANDO: (subtitled) But if we don’t deliver it to Linderman ... we will never get the sword. How long do we stay under here?

HIRO: (subtitled) Until they are gone.

ANDO: (subtitled) Who are these people? Andy why is everyone always chasing us?

HIRO: (subtitled) Because I’m special.

ANDO: (subtitled) Well, I’m not special. And I’m tired of getting chased. I’m going to have oil all over my back ... because of you!

HIRO: (subtitled) You can surrender. But I will never surrender. A hero never gives up.

(Just then, a car alarm disengages right above them. A car door opens. The car just above them shakes as someone gets in.)

ANDO: (subtitled) Did you feel something?

(The car door shuts. The engine starts.)

(The car they’re hiding under is driven away. leaving Hiro and Ando exposed on the concrete.)

(They sit up. Then, they stand up. Hiro puts the art container back around his back. He looks up and sees the black van turn the corner.)

HIRO:

(He looks around.)

HIRO: (subtitled) This way!

(The van picks up speed. Hiro and Ando run. The van chases after them. Hiro veers to the side. Ando is just behind him.)

(Hiro jumps over a fence and onto the next lower half level. Off screen, the van stops and men get out.)

(Ando grabs the fence and climbs up to the next upper half level. The man grabs Ando and pulls him down. Oh, no! They’ve got Ando!)

ANDO: Oh! Hiro! Hiro!

(Hiro stops running. He turns and sees they’ve got Ando.)

(The two men in black drag Ando kicking and struggling back to the van.)

ANDO: Who are you?

(Hiro turns back.)

HIRO: Hey! Hello!
ANDO: Let me go!

(There are three men. They turn around and look at Hiro. Ando is just as surprised. Hiro climbs back over the fence

HIRO: (in English) I am very special. I offer myself in trade. Release un-special Ando and I go with you. Okay?

(One of the men steps forward to get Hiro. The other man continues to drag Ando backward into the van.)

HIRO: (in English) Good deal, yes?

(The man takes Hiro to the van.)

HIRO: (in English) Oh! Oh, what are you doing? Oh, you no like the deal?

(He pushes Hiro into the back of the van next to Ando.)

ANDO: (subtitled) You came back for me.

NIKI: Who are you? Why did you take that off me?

DR. WITHERSON: I'm Dr. Witherson. I'm a psychiatrist. And I've been assigned to your case.

NIKI: No, you shouldn't be in here. It's not safe.

DR. WITHERSON: If it makes you feel more comfortable, we can put the restraints back on while we talk.

NIKI: You don't understand. The drugs keep her weak. That jacket can't stop her. (to the orderly) Give me a shot.

DR. WITHERSON: You mean Jessica?

NIKI: How do you know her name?

DR. WITHERSON: I read your file. I know all about your past. Your marriage. Your website. Your sister. Her accident.? Her name was Jessica too, isn’t that right?

NIKI: (sighs) Give me another shot.

DR. WITHERSON: You know, I haven't made an official diagnosis yet. But it seems like we're dealing with a classic case of multiple personality disorder.

NIKI: You're wasting your time. Just go.

DR. WITHERSON: You know --

(Dr. Witherson starts to get up. The orderly moves forward. She motions him back.)

DR. WITHERSON: It's okay. It's okay. (She sits up.) It makes sense, facing the kind of sentence that you're facing, that you want to give up. You think your life is over, but it's not. You can still make something of yourself in here. People do it all the time. But you gotta want help. And yeah, it can take years to integrate a multiple personality, but if you let me, I can help you.

NIKI: What I am, you can't fix. Just give me another shot and go away.

DR. WITHERSON: No.

CLAIRE: You said if I had an emergency, to hang the chimes outside my window.

THE HAITIAN: Is your father becoming suspicious?

CLAIRE: No. And it's kind of a problem. Every word out of my mouth is a lie. I have to laugh, and smile, and look him in the eye. My own father. It’s breaking my heart.

THE HAITIAN: Would you prefer I took your memory?

CLAIRE: I need to know that one thing in my life is real. Do you know who my real parents are?

THE HAITIAN: Of your father, I know nothing.

CLAIRE: And my mother?

THE HAITIAN: Only that she died in an explosion here in Texas fourteen years ago.

CLAIRE: My mother died? Are you sure?

SANDRA BENNET: She's at the library getting books for some biology report. I cannot believe how many projects they lay on these kids. I don't know how she holds everything in that head of hers. (baby voice) No, I don't.

(Mr. Bennet is quiet. Sandra looks at him.)

SANDRA BENNET: You're still worried about her, aren't you?

MR. BENNET: She's had a rough couple of weeks.

SANDRA BENNET: Well, besides a little memory loss ... I'd say she's doing just peachy.

MR. BENNET: Do you really?

SANDRA BENNET: It's Lyle you need to worry about. That boy is getting so absent-minded lately. (baby voice) Yes, he is. (normal voice) We'll be back.

CAPTAIN 2: Officer Parkman, is this really the statement you want entered into your public record? That a paper salesman from Odessa, Texas is currently harboring a super-powered serial killer, and that you raided his warehouse on a hunch?

MATT: Uh, sir, all I've ever wanted to do was protect and serve. To help my fellow man.

CAPTAIN 2: I'll ask you again. Do you want your future as a police officer to be decided by what you've written here?

(Matt looks at them.)

CAPTAIN 2: (v.o., thinking) (echo-y) Just say "Yes," so I can flush you down the toilet.

MATT: At this time, I'd like to recant my previous written statement. I made the whole thing up.

CAPTAIN 1: Why did you do that?

MATT: I failed to make detective three times, sir. And, uh ... Quite frankly I was sick of directing traffic, handing out speeding tickets, and I -- I wanted to look like a hero. I am sorry for any shame that I may have brought this department.

CAPTAIN 1: (v.o., thinking) Great, a liar, not a nutcase.

THUG 1: (in English) I know all about your so-called mission to save the world, Mr. Nakamura. You think you have a power, and that you can use it to make a difference.

(Ando watches as the man reaches down to the black bag next to him. Ando sees the gun on the top of the bag.)

THUG 1: (subtitled) You are ... WRONG.

HIRO: (subtitled) Who are you?

THUG 1: (subtitled) I work for someone ... who has true power. (Hiro glances at Ando.) A man who knows what you’re up to. And wants you ... to stop.

(The thug takes out two airplane tickets and offers it to them.)

THUG 1: (in English) Two first-class tickets. Non-stop to Tokyo.

ANDO: (in English) First class?

(Hiro pushes the tickets away from Ando and looks at him.)

HIRO: (subtitled) Ando, do not be tempted. Those tickets are a test ... of our devotion to our mission. You cannot bribe a hero. My heart is true. My spirit unbreakable. When I meet your "Big Boss," I will tell him the same thing!

THUG 1: (subtitled) Oh -- he won’t like that.

(The thug puts the two tickets back in his inside jacket pocket.)

THUG 1: (subtitled) Not one bit.

[INT. (NEW YORK) PETER’S APARTMENT – DAY]

(Peter is packing a travel bag. He grabs his things and puts them in the large bag. He stops and picks up a photo of him with Nathan, their arms around the other’s shoulders and both smiling at the camera.)

(He puts the photo down and closes his travel bag.)

(He hears someone open his front door. He picks up his bag and sees Nathan and Mohinder enter. Nathan closes the door.)

NATHAN: You aren't answering your cell phone. We've been looking everywhere for you.

PETER: What's he doing here?

MOHINDER: Making up for past mistakes. I'd like to help you.

(Nathan notes the travel bag.)

NATHAN: You're leaving town?

PETER: Yeah. Yeah, think I'll get away for a little while.

NATHAN: What, be a danger to somebody else? There's gotta be another way, Peter. Let me help you.

PETER: You can't.

MOHINDER: But maybe I can.

PETER: How?

MOHINDER: We can find that answer together. If you allow me to test you, with more research —

PETER: Shh ... You can cure me? You're gonna fix all of this?

MOHINDER: It'll take study and time--

PETER: Time -- I don't have time to be your guinea pig. I have a plane to catch.

(Peter takes a step forward. Nathan takes a step to the side to block him.)

NATHAN: I'm not letting you run away, Peter.

PETER: So what? You gonna call the cops on me, Nathan? You gonna tell them your brother's going nuclear?

NATHAN: I could have my mentally ill brother detained for his own safety.

(Peter puts his bag down. He looks warily at Mohinder while putting a hand on Nathan’s shoulder. Mohinder gets the hint and steps away from them.)

PETER: (quietly) I know you want to help me. You're my big brother and you fix everything. But you can't -- you can't fix this one this time.

NATHAN: I can. Look, let's just sit down, and we can figure this out.

PETER: Okay.

NATHAN: Okay?

PETER: Okay.

(Peter calmly steps past Nathan. Nathan turns his back for a moment on Peter, thinking that it’ll be all right.)

NATHAN: Peter!

NATHAN: (to the bodyguard) Where'd he go?

BODYGUARD: Who?

NATHAN: You're supposed to watch the door.

(The bodyguard shakes his head. He didn’t see anyone.)

(Mohinder looks at the open window at the end of the hallway behind the bodyguard. He and Nathan are drawing their own conclusions about where Peter has gone.)

MOHINDER: My God, did he just ... ?

NATHAN: (to the bodyguard) Get down to the airport, and make sure he doesn't get away this time.

BODYGUARD: Yes, sir.

(The bodyguard leaves. Nathan and Mohinder walk over to the open window. Nathan looks at Mohinder, then turns to follow the bodyguard.)

(ON MOHINDER as he looks at the open window. He then turns to look back at the apartment door.)

(CAMERA PULLS BACK down the hallway and away from Mohinder. As we move back, we pass by two people standing quietly in the hallway.)

CLAUDE: Nurse who's an empath, very cute.

PETER: "Empath," what's that mean?

CLAUDE: Means you're a pain in my ass, mate.

(Claude looks around Peter’s apartment.)

PETER: Yeah, but you followed me.

CLAUDE: Yeah, well, I'm not very much of a people person, but I'm certain I'm not gonna let you kill 'em all. You seem pretty sure about that pending apocalypse of yours.

PETER: Yeah, not unless you help me control it.

CLAUDE: You don't know what you're asking, what you have to go through. You might want to reconsider dying. Hell of a lot easier.

PETER: I can handle it.

CLAUDE: Yeah, that's what they all say.

PETER: "They"? How many -- how many people have you taught before me?

CLAUDE: Come on, mate, I'll steal us a cab.

NIKI: Isn't there another way?

(Hiro peers into the attendant’s booth and concentrates on the small clock inside. It reads 10:48. The clock continues, its second hand ticking rhythmically.)

(Hiro concentrates harder on the clock. The second hand continues to advance.)

(He grits his teeth and tries harder.)

(It doesn’t work.)

HIRO: (subtitled) Darn.

(The parking attendant gives Ando the car keys. Ando takes the keys and they head into the lot.)

HIRO: (subtitled) My power is lost until I get the sword. It focused the samurai Kensei’s power. It will do the same for me.

ANDO: (subtitled) But Hiro, if you have no power, how can we steal the sword?

(They start up the stairs.)

HIRO: (subtitled) I will find a way. That sword is my destiny.

(CUT TO: They walk on the next floor.)

HIRO: (subtitled) A samurai’s weapon must be used with honor. And respect. This sword has many lessons to teach.

ANDO: (subtitled) Swords are for killing. That’s why they’re sharp.

HIRO: (subtitled) Maybe I use the sword to kill bomb-man. Is it my destiny to kill this man?

(Ando sees something in front of them and stops Hiro.)

ANDO: (subtitled) Hiro, wait.

(There’s a man standing near their car.)

HIRO: (subtitled) What is it?

(The man turns around and spots them. The man takes out his phone and makes a call. Ando doesn’t like it.)

ANDO: (subtitled) That man, waiting by our car ...

(The man finishes his call and closes his phone. He stares at Ando and Hiro.)

HIRO: (subtitled) He doesn’t look very friendly.

(The man takes a gun out of his holster and heads toward them.)

ANDO: (subtitled) He has a gun. Do something!

HIRO: (subtitled) I have no power! Run!

(Ando and Hiro turn and run. A dark-colored van turns the corner, tires screeching. It heads toward them.)

(Ando waves the van down.)

ANDO: Help, there's a man chasing us!

(The van stops and another man gets out of the van. He looks just as dangerous as the first man.)

HIRO: Pinch. (subtitled) Uh-oh.

(Hiro runs.)

[INT. MOHINDER’S APARTMENT (#613) -- DAY]

CAPTION:
MOHINDER SURESH
BROOKLYN

(Mohinder is looking through a microscope on a table he’s set up in the back room to serve as his make-shift lab.)

(There’s a knock at the front door. Mohinder stops, removes his latex gloves and heads to the front to answer the door.)

(He opens the door and finds Nathan standing there.)

NATHAN: Dr. Suresh? Do you remember me?

MOHINDER: Nathan Petrelli.

NATHAN: You yelled at my car.

MOHINDER: Yes, we met under unfortunate circumstances. I believe I came off as a deranged lunatic.

NATHAN: (nods) Do you mind if I come in?

(Mohinder lets him in. He closes the door behind him.)

NATHAN: I'm looking for my brother, Doctor.

MOHINDER: That makes two of us.

NATHAN: I'm sorry?

MOHINDER: I've been leaving messages for him for two days now.

NATHAN: Guess I'm at the wrong place then.

MOHINDER: I need to find him. The last time I heard, he was in Texas.

NATHAN: He made it home barely. Barely alive, and now he's run off again. Afraid that he's gonna somehow ... hurt people. Doctor, I, uh—possibly you could explain to me. What the hell's happening to him?

(Mohinder turns and heads into the back room.)

MOHINDER: Before his death, my father compiled a list: thirty-six individuals who carry a genetic marker which he discovered. (He shows Nathan the list.) A marker which he theorized gave these people certain abilities.

NATHAN: And my brother's one of them?

MOHINDER: As are you.

(Mohinder shows him a file folder. Nathan looks inside and is very quiet.)

NATHAN: I didn't come here to talk about me.

(Mohinder takes the file folder from him and puts it aside.)

MOHINDER: Fair enough. Peter's specific DNA allows for a blend. Like colors in a mosaic, resequencing itself to mimic the abilities of those around him.

NATHAN: Like a chameleon?

MOHINDER: More like a sponge. It's precisely why I've been studying him.

NATHAN: Could his condition become dangerous to himself or to other people?

MOHINDER: If he absorbs too much, or comes into contact with an unstable ability, then most definitely yes.

NATHAN: Can you fix it? Alter his genes somehow?

MOHINDER: Theoretically, it is possible to develop a specific site inhibitor. But look, I will know more when we find him.

NATHAN: We? Doctor, the last thing my brother needs is somebody feeding into his paranoia. But thank you.

(Nathan turns and re-enters the living room to get to the front door.)

MOHINDER: Mr. Petrelli.

(Mohinder grabs his shoulder and stops him.)

MOHINDER: Of all the people on that list, your brother may be the most important. If I can find him, study him, then I can do more than help him. I can help all of you. Now, give me a minute, and I'll get my coat.

(Mohinder leaves to get his coat. We hold on Nathan.)

[EXT. DEVEAUX BUILDING -- ROOFTOP -- DAY]

(Peter walks out onto the rooftop. Off screen there are clanging and banging noises.)

(Claude is standing in front of a bird coop.)

CLAUDE: I told you not to follow me.

PETER: I need help. (Peter looks around.) You live up here?

CLAUDE: You're not a fast learner, are you mate?

(Claude closes the bird coop door.)

PETER: I took care of a man who owned this building. His name was Charles Deveaux.

CLAUDE: Never heard of him.

PETER: You don't think that's strange? I worked here. The place where you live and keep your birds.

CLAUDE: I don't keep anything. I let 'em out once a day, they come back. Sounds like free will to me.


PETER: I need to learn how to control this. Like you do.

(He closes another coop door and kneels to open the next coop door.)

CLAUDE: What are you talking about? It can't be controlled.

PETER: There has to be some way. If -- if I don't, New York explodes. Okay? I explode.

CLAUDE: An exploding man, where'd you get that idea?

PETER: My dreams. This place. I found you for a reason. I think you're the one that has to teach me how to stop this.

CLAUDE: There's no such thing. (He closes the coop door.) No teaching. No Sunday school for the special. What I can do, you can't learn. You wake up in the morning, it's there. If you've got thin soup, then that's your supper. (He stands up.) Sorry, mate, that's the way it is.

(Peter grabs Claude as he walks past. Claude immediately shakes his hand off him.)

PETER: I'm trying not to die. There's got to be something you can do.

(Claude turns and grabs Peter by his shirt.)

CLAUDE: I can kill you myself right now. Solve your exploding problem here. Maybe that's why you dreamt me. Don't bother looking for me. You won't find me here again.

(Claude turns and leaves. Peter walks over to the edge of the roof, leans his hands on the wall and takes a deep breath.)

(Claire watches as Zach goes through Mr. Bennet’s home computer.)

ZACH: So what exactly am I looking for here?

CLAIRE: Anything my dad doesn't want us to find. You said you're good with computers.

ZACH: I make movies on my laptop.

CLAIRE: No, you're good at finding those holes in the Internet password-protected nanny blocker stuff.

ZACH: Shouldn't you be watching the doorway if your dad walks in?

CLAIRE: He's at work. It's just you, me, and Mr. Muggles.

(She indicates the dog sitting on the chair. Mr. Muggles grumbles.)

(Zach clicks on several windows.)

ZACH: There's nothing. There's not even any porn.

CLAIRE: Gross.

ZACH: I'm serious; this thing is totally clean.

(Zach continues to look through the directories.)

CLAIRE: No. My dad lied to me about my entire life. My biological parents. My ability. You can't just hide things like that. There's gotta be something on there.

ZACH: If your dad's the guy you're describing, I don't think he's gonna keep his secrets on the family computer.

(Mr. Muggles starts barking. He gets up, jumps off the chair and scrambles out of the room.

CLAIRE: Uh-oh. Shut it down.

ZACH: Oh-sh--. Okay

(Claire rushes out of the room. Zach closes the windows on the monitor. He finishes, gets up and follows Claire into the kitchen.)

(They scramble to stand casually in the kitchen. Mr. Muggles barks at the door. The front door opens and Mr. Bennet walks in, careful to not let Mr. Muggles out of the house.)

MR. BENNET: Okay, okay.

CLAIRE: I thought you were at work.

(He closes the front door and seems surprised to see Zach in the kitchen with Claire.)

MR. BENNET: Forgot my cell. Zachary. What a nice surprise to see you here.

ZACH: Yeah, it's biology class. We're lab partners now.

(He turns and notices that the computer is on.)

CLAIRE: (quickly) Yeah we were just doing some research on the Internet. We have a presentation on --

ZACH: The manatee, also known as the sea cow.

(Claire smiles at Zach’s save. Mr. Bennet watches them and smiles.)

MR. BENNET: Do you mind if I talk to Claire in private for a moment?

CLAIRE: (to Zach) You can wait in my room.

(Zach doesn’t know where it is.)

CLAIRE: It's upstairs. Second door on the right.

(Zach heads upstairs.)

MR. BENNET: So. You and Zach?

CLAIRE: (shakes her head) Ms. Gomez stuck us together. Must be some social experiment or something. Worst day ever.

MR. BENNET: Claire.

CLAIRE: What?

MR. BENNET: You two used to be friends. You might find you actually get along.

(Claire gives him a forced smile at the irony. Mr. Bennet smiles back. She turns and heads upstairs as well.)

(Hold on Mr. Bennet. His smile fades as he watches her go.)

MATT: Yes.

JANICE: And he--he did this to you?

(He stands up.)

MATT: Yeah. Yeah, and I gotta figure out how he did this. And I'm gonna take him and everybody with him down. That Haitian guy, all of 'em.

JANICE: Matt, I--I'm sorry. I've gotta say, this is all a little nuts. I mean, first the whole psychic thing. And now... Come on, you're telling me you're about to run off and chase some guy who works in a paper factory in Texas.

MATT: They did this to me, Janice. I need to find them. I have to figure out what this is all about.

JANICE: (v.o., thoughts) Maybe you could call the FBI.

MATT: No, I can't. I can't go to the FBI. They think I'm crazy. (sighs) I-I gotta get ready. I got a review hearing this morning. I'm about to get my ass handed to me by three captains.

(Matt heads inside. Janice stands up and follows him.)



[EXT. PARKMAN RESIDENCE – BATHROOM – DAY -- CONTINUOUS]

(Matt walks into the bathroom and turns on the tap. Water spurts out intermittently. Obviously, someone was supposed to call the plumber.)

(Matt fiddles with the tap. Behind him, Janice sighs. Matt looks up and sees her in the doorway.)

MATT: Yes, I will call the plumber today.

(She sighs and rolls his eyes.)

JANICE: Are you always gonna be in my head?

MATT: Well, I can't control this thing.

JANICE: You can't or you won't?

HIRO: (subtitled) The painting is valuable. Maybe they’re trying to steal it.

(The black van from earlier passes by their hiding place.)

ANDO: (subtitled) But if we don’t deliver it to Linderman ... we will never get the sword. How long do we stay under here?

HIRO: (subtitled) Until they are gone.

ANDO: (subtitled) Who are these people? Andy why is everyone always chasing us?

HIRO: (subtitled) Because I’m special.

ANDO: (subtitled) Well, I’m not special. And I’m tired of getting chased. I’m going to have oil all over my back ... because of you!

HIRO: (subtitled) You can surrender. But I will never surrender. A hero never gives up.

(Just then, a car alarm disengages right above them. A car door opens. The car just above them shakes as someone gets in.)

ANDO: (subtitled) Did you feel something?

(The car door shuts. The engine starts.)

(The car they’re hiding under is driven away. leaving Hiro and Ando exposed on the concrete.)

(They sit up. Then, they stand up. Hiro puts the art container back around his back. He looks up and sees the black van turn the corner.)

HIRO:

(He looks around.)

HIRO: (subtitled) This way!

(The van picks up speed. Hiro and Ando run. The van chases after them. Hiro veers to the side. Ando is just behind him.)

(Hiro jumps over a fence and onto the next lower half level. Off screen, the van stops and men get out.)

(Ando grabs the fence and climbs up to the next upper half level. The man grabs Ando and pulls him down. Oh, no! They’ve got Ando!)

ANDO: Oh! Hiro! Hiro!

(Hiro stops running. He turns and sees they’ve got Ando.)

(The two men in black drag Ando kicking and struggling back to the van.)

ANDO: Who are you?

(Hiro turns back.)

HIRO: Hey! Hello!
ANDO: Let me go!

(There are three men. They turn around and look at Hiro. Ando is just as surprised. Hiro climbs back over the fence

HIRO: (in English) I am very special. I offer myself in trade. Release un-special Ando and I go with you. Okay?

(One of the men steps forward to get Hiro. The other man continues to drag Ando backward into the van.)

HIRO: (in English) Good deal, yes?

(The man takes Hiro to the van.)

HIRO: (in English) Oh! Oh, what are you doing? Oh, you no like the deal?

(He pushes Hiro into the back of the van next to Ando.)

NIKI: Who are you? Why did you take that off me?

DR. WITHERSON: I'm Dr. Witherson. I'm a psychiatrist. And I've been assigned to your case.

NIKI: No, you shouldn't be in here. It's not safe.

DR. WITHERSON: If it makes you feel more comfortable, we can put the restraints back on while we talk.

NIKI: You don't understand. The drugs keep her weak. That jacket can't stop her. (to the orderly) Give me a shot.

DR. WITHERSON: You mean Jessica?

NIKI: How do you know her name?

DR. WITHERSON: I read your file. I know all about your past. Your marriage. Your website. Your sister. Her accident.? Her name was Jessica too, isn’t that right?

NIKI: (sighs) Give me another shot.

DR. WITHERSON: You know, I haven't made an official diagnosis yet. But it seems like we're dealing with a classic case of multiple personality disorder.

NIKI: You're wasting your time. Just go.

DR. WITHERSON: You know --

(Dr. Witherson starts to get up. The orderly moves forward. She motions him back.)

DR. WITHERSON: It's okay. It's okay. (She sits up.) It makes sense, facing the kind of sentence that you're facing, that you want to give up. You think your life is over, but it's not. You can still make something of yourself in here. People do it all the time. But you gotta want help. And yeah, it can take years to integrate a multiple personality, but if you let me, I can help you.

NIKI: What I am, you can't fix. Just give me another shot and go away.

DR. WITHERSON: No.

CLAIRE: You said if I had an emergency, to hang the chimes outside my window.

THE HAITIAN: Is your father becoming suspicious?

CLAIRE: No. And it's kind of a problem. Every word out of my mouth is a lie. I have to laugh, and smile, and look him in the eye. My own father. It’s breaking my heart.

THE HAITIAN: Would you prefer I took your memory?

CLAIRE: I need to know that one thing in my life is real. Do you know who my real parents are?

THE HAITIAN: Of your father, I know nothing.

CLAIRE: And my mother?

THE HAITIAN: Only that she died in an explosion here in Texas fourteen years ago.

CLAIRE: My mother died? Are you sure?

SANDRA BENNET: She's at the library getting books for some biology report. I cannot believe how many projects they lay on these kids. I don't know how she holds everything in that head of hers. (baby voice) No, I don't.

(Mr. Bennet is quiet. Sandra looks at him.)

SANDRA BENNET: You're still worried about her, aren't you?

MR. BENNET: She's had a rough couple of weeks.

SANDRA BENNET: Well, besides a little memory loss ... I'd say she's doing just peachy.

MR. BENNET: Do you really?

SANDRA BENNET: It's Lyle you need to worry about. That boy is getting so absent-minded lately. (baby voice) Yes, he is. (normal voice) We'll be back.

CAPTAIN 1: Well ... Surprised you left out the flying saucers.

CAPTAIN 2: Officer Parkman, is this really the statement you want entered into your public record? That a paper salesman from Odessa, Texas is currently harboring a super-powered serial killer, and that you raided his warehouse on a hunch?

MATT: Uh, sir, all I've ever wanted to do was protect and serve. To help my fellow man.

CAPTAIN 2: I'll ask you again. Do you want your future as a police officer to be decided by what you've written here?

(Matt looks at them.)

CAPTAIN 2: (v.o., thinking) (echo-y) Just say "Yes," so I can flush you down the toilet.

MATT: At this time, I'd like to recant my previous written statement. I made the whole thing up.

CAPTAIN 1: Why did you do that?

MATT: I failed to make detective three times, sir. And, uh ... Quite frankly I was sick of directing traffic, handing out speeding tickets, and I -- I wanted to look like a hero. I am sorry for any shame that I may have brought this department.

CAPTAIN 1: (v.o., thinking) Great, a liar, not a nutcase.

HIRO: (in English) Tell your boss I'm on very important mission.

THUG 1: (in English) I know all about your so-called mission to save the world, Mr. Nakamura. You think you have a power, and that you can use it to make a difference.

THUG 1: (subtitled) You are ... WRONG.

HIRO: (subtitled) Who are you?

THUG 1: (subtitled) I work for someone ... who has true power. (Hiro glances at Ando.) A man who knows what you’re up to. And wants you ... to stop.

THUG 1: (in English) Two first-class tickets. Non-stop to Tokyo.

ANDO: (in English) First class?

(Hiro pushes the tickets away from Ando and looks at him.)

HIRO: (subtitled) Ando, do not be tempted. Those tickets are a test ... of our devotion to our mission. You cannot bribe a hero. My heart is true. My spirit unbreakable. When I meet your "Big Boss," I will tell him the same thing!

THUG 1: (subtitled) Oh -- he won’t like that.

(He puts the photo down and closes his travel bag.)

NATHAN: You aren't answering your cell phone. We've been looking everywhere for you.

PETER: What's he doing here?

MOHINDER: Making up for past mistakes. I'd like to help you.

(Nathan notes the travel bag.)

NATHAN: You're leaving town?

PETER: Yeah. Yeah, think I'll get away for a little while.

NATHAN: What, be a danger to somebody else? There's gotta be another way, Peter. Let me help you.

PETER: You can't.

MOHINDER: But maybe I can.

PETER: How?

MOHINDER: We can find that answer together. If you allow me to test you, with more research —

PETER: Shh ... You can cure me? You're gonna fix all of this?

MOHINDER: It'll take study and time--

PETER: Time -- I don't have time to be your guinea pig. I have a plane to catch.

(Peter takes a step forward. Nathan takes a step to the side to block him.)

NATHAN: I'm not letting you run away, Peter.

PETER: So what? You gonna call the cops on me, Nathan? You gonna tell them your brother's going nuclear?

NATHAN: I could have my mentally ill brother detained for his own safety.

(Peter puts his bag down. He looks warily at Mohinder while putting a hand on Nathan’s shoulder. Mohinder gets the hint and steps away from them.)

PETER: (quietly) I know you want to help me. You're my big brother and you fix everything. But you can't -- you can't fix this one this time.

NATHAN: I can. Look, let's just sit down, and we can figure this out.

PETER: Okay.

NATHAN: Okay?

PETER: Okay.

BODYGUARD: Who?

NATHAN: You're supposed to watch the door.

(The bodyguard shakes his head. He didn’t see anyone.)

(Mohinder looks at the open window at the end of the hallway behind the bodyguard. He and Nathan are drawing their own conclusions about where Peter has gone.)

MOHINDER: My God, did he just ... ?

NATHAN: (to the bodyguard) Get down to the airport, and make sure he doesn't get away this time.

BODYGUARD: Yes, sir.

(The bodyguard leaves. Nathan and Mohinder walk over to the open window. Nathan looks at Mohinder, then turns to follow the bodyguard.)

(ON MOHINDER as he looks at the open window. He then turns to look back at the apartment door.)

(CAMERA PULLS BACK down the hallway and away from Mohinder. As we move back, we pass by two people standing quietly in the hallway.)

(There against the wall near the apartment door is CLAUDE with his hand covering PETER’S mouth, keeping him silent. They were there all the time!)

(Mohinder doesn’t see them. He turns and walks away.)

(CLAUDE removes his hand from Peter’s mouth.)

FADE OUT.

(COMMERCIAL SET)



FADE IN:

[EXT. NEW YORK CITY (STOCK) -- DAY]

(We hear the sound of a refrigerator door open and closing.)

PETER: (v.o.) Thanks. Help yourself.



[INT. (NEW YORK) PETER’S APARTMENT – DAY]

(Claude has a bottle in his hand. He twists off the cap and flips the cap to Peter.)

CLAUDE: This your place?

PETER: Yeah.

CLAUDE: Guy with family connections like yours could do a lot better.

(He drinks.)

PETER: Left the family business. I'm a nurse now.

CLAUDE: Nurse who's an empath, very cute.

PETER: "Empath," what's that mean?

CLAUDE: Means you're a pain in my ass, mate.

(Claude looks around Peter’s apartment.)

PETER: Yeah, but you followed me.

CLAUDE: Yeah, well, I'm not very much of a people person, but I'm certain I'm not gonna let you kill 'em all. You seem pretty sure about that pending apocalypse of yours.

PETER: Yeah, not unless you help me control it.

CLAUDE: You don't know what you're asking, what you have to go through. You might want to reconsider dying. Hell of a lot easier.

PETER: I can handle it.

CLAUDE: Yeah, that's what they all say.

PETER: "They"? How many -- how many people have you taught before me?

(Claude looks at Peter. Then --

CLAUDE: Come on, mate, I'll steal us a cab.

(Claude bounds toward the front door. He opens the door, then looks back at Peter.)

CLAUDE: You coming or not?

(Of course he is. Peter hurries and follows Claude out. The door closes behind him.)

CUT TO:



[INT. (LOS ANGELES) PARKMAN RESIDENCE – SECOND FLOOR BATHROOM – DAY]

(Matt is under the sink finishing up fixing the pipes. He sighs and drops the wrench in the tool kit. He reaches over the sink and tries the faucet. The water runs fine.)

(Janice sits on the edge of the bathtub watching him. He shuts the faucet off. She claps and giggles.)

(He wipes his hands on a towel, gets up and joins her on the edge of the tub. She shakes her head. He doesn’t look at her.)

MATT: Uh, so they suspended me for six months.

JANICE: Oh, Matt.

MATT: I actually thought this ability was gonna be a good thing. And now I'm unemployed, and about to lose my marriage.

(She rubs his back.)

JANICE: You haven't lost that. (He turns and looks at her.) Not yet anyway.

MATT: Thanks, that's encouraging.

JANICE: Look, we -- we just have to trust each other.

MATT: I can do that.

(They kiss. She takes his hand.)

JANICE: Now ... So I'm gonna give you one more freebie. What am I thinking?

(He looks at her.)

MATT: We're having a baby?

(She laughs and they hug.)

MATT: Oh ... (shouts) We're having a baby!

CUT TO:



[INT. (LAS VEGAS) PRISON – PADDED CELL]

(Niki is lying on the floor in her cell. A shadow passes over her and she wakes up. DL phases into the cell. She turns and sees him.)

DL: Nik, what have they done to you?

(He kneels next to her.)

NIKI: If they catch you—

DL: They won't.

NIKI: Come closer.

DL: What is it?

(He holds her.)

NIKI: Your shirt. It smells like home. How's Micah? Is he okay?

DL: He's fine. It's just ... I can't do this, Nik. Not alone. I thought I could. I thought I could handle everything, but I --

NIKI: DL, you can't do this to me.

DL: I gotta find a way to get you outta here. (He looks around the cell, checking out the walls.) This is crazy. I can walk in here any time I want, right? I should be able to get you out.

NIKI: I am gonna be in here for a long time. The rest of my life maybe. You need to get used to that.

DL: Your son needs you.

NIKI: Damn it, DL. That is not fair. I am counting on you. You know that I need to stay in here.

DL: I need you, Nik. We need you. He's having such a hard time without you.

NIKI: You need to talk to him. You need to be honest. He needs boundaries and a strong hand. It's not too late.

(They lean forward, foreheads touching.)

NIKI: You need to go. Go.

(DL lets go. He stands up and backs out of the room, phasing out of the padded wall.)

CUT TO:



[INT. (LAS VEGAS) ATM – DAY]

(The VEGAS INDEPENDENT TAXI cab drives past. Micah is walking along the sidewalk. He stops when he sees an ATM machine. He gets an idea.)

(He walks up to the ATM machine. The monitor reads:

WELCOME TO MINI-BANK
PLEASE INSERT YOUR CARD

(Micah puts his left hand on the machine, his fingertips barely touching the glass. PZZT. The monitor message changes:

ENTER YOUR PIN NUMBER

PZZT.

(ON MICAH. He closes his eyes and concentrates. The ATM machine beeps.)

(Micah opens his eyes and removes his right hand. Cash comes out of the machine. Micah pockets the cash.)

(He steps forward again and touches the monitor with his left hand. The monitor changes:

$500.00

(The cash comes out of the machine. Micah looks at it and smiles. He pockets the cash and smiles.)

FADE OUT.

(COMMERCIAL SET)



FADE IN:

[INT. (ODESSA) BENNET RESIDENCE – CLAIRE’S BEDROOM -- NIGHT]

(Claire is on her bed, talking with Zach on the phone. She’s looking through the phone book.)

CLAIRE: (to phone) There's only twelve people in Kermit with the last name "Gordon." So far, only three. None of them have ever heard of Meredith.

(There’s a knock at the door.)

CLAIRE: (to phone) Hold on.

MR. BENNET: (o.s.) Claire?

(Claire closes the phone book and shoves everything under her blanket.

CLAIRE: (to phone) I'll call you back.

(She hangs up.)

(The door opens. Mr. Bennet walks in.)

MR. BENNET: Claire?

CLAIRE: Sorry, I was just, uh, talking to Zach about our report.

MR. BENNET: Aah. (He holds a book, MANATEE.) Well, Molly in accounting is married to a marine biologist, and he said that --

(Claire pulls out her own book, MANATEE.)

MR. BENNET: -- you're already on top of it.

CLAIRE: Did you know that all three varieties of manatee are vulnerable to extinction?

MR. BENNET: No, I didn't. (He looks at her and sits on the edge of her bed.) Is everything all right? We haven't talked in a while.

CLAIRE: Actually, there is something.

MR. BENNET: Yeah?

CLAIRE: The bears. My stuffed bears. I think it's time for them to migrate. I'm almost sixteen, Dad. Bears and talks can't last forever.

MR. BENNET: Whether you're 16, or 32, or 64 –

CLAIRE: When I'm 64, you'll –

MR. BENNET: I will be there for you. Always.

CLAIRE: Don't you think it's time I learn how to deal with my own problems?

(He smiles and puts a hand on her shoulder. Just then the wind chimes ring. He notices them hanging outside the window.)

(He removes his hand from her shoulder, picks up the book he brought with him and stands up.)

MR. BENNET: Well, dinner's in an hour. And, uh, do me a favor. No -- No extinction talk at the table. You know how sensitive your mother is.

(Claire nods.)

(Mr. Bennet turns and leaves the room. He closes the door behind him. Claire exhales.)

CUT TO:



[INT. (LAS VEGAS) PRISON – INTERVIEW ROOM ]

(Niki sits at the table. The door buzzer sounds. The guard escorts Dr. Witherson into the room. Dr. Witherson puts a folder on the table.)

DR. WITHERSON: You have a change of heart?

NIKI: My son. My family needs me. So –

(Dr. Witherson sits.)

DR. WITHERSON: I want you to understand that there are no guarantees.

NIKI: I don't care. I need to get rid of Jessica.

DR. WITHERSON: So you know what might help? If I could talk to her. All right?

NIKI: Isn't there another way?

DR. WITHERSON: No. I'm afraid in cases like these, it is imperative that I have interaction with all aspects of the patient's personality. Honey, let me talk to her.

NIKI: No! You can't.

DR. WITHERSON: So let me put it to you this way. Either I speak with Jessica, or you may not see your little boy for a very, very long time.

(Dr. Witherson looks at Niki. After a long moment, Dr. Witherson stands up and heads for the door.)

NIKI: But ...

(The guard opens the door.)

NIKI: Wait.

(Dr. Witherson waits. We hold on Niki.)

CUT TO:



[INT. (LAS VEGAS) SANDERS’ RESIDENCE – LIVING ROOM]

(DL paces. Micah walks in.)

DL: Micah, where have you been? I was worried to death.

MICAH: I was just out walking around.

DL: Sit down.

(Micah sits down.)

DL: Micah, we gotta figure this out. 'Cause the truth is your mom's not coming home, and I'm having a really hard time here. I can't get a job. I can barely pay the rent. I've never felt much like a man in my life. My papa never taught me, but I want to be a good dad to you. I'm gonna need your help. We gotta pull together and make this work. 'Cause it's just you and me.

MICAH: I'm sorry, Dad. I can try harder.

(Micah gives DL a hug.)

MICAH: Maybe this will help.

(Micah opens his backpack and puts the cash on the table.)

DL: Where'd you get -- Where'd you get this from?

MICAH: You know how you and Mom have a secret? Well, I have a secret too.

(Micah smiles at DL.)



[EXT. NEW YORK CITY (STOCK) – EVENING]

[INT. VAN (PARKED) -- NIGHT]

(Hiro and Ando feel the van stop.)

HIRO: (subtitled) Where are we? Your secret headquarters? You let us go now?

THUG 1: That's up to the boss.

(Thug 1 grabs his bag and heads outside. He closes the door behind him.)

ANDO: (subtitled) Hiro, please. I don’t want to meet the Boss. I want to go home. Tell them what they want to hear.

(Hiro puts a hand on Ando’s shoulder.)

HIRO: (subtitled) Do not be afraid, my friend. I shall never betray you. No matter what.

(Ando looks worried.)



[EXT. ROAD – NIGHT]

(Thug 1 opens the car door and the "Big Boss" exits the car. He stands just outside the van doors. Thug 1 opens the van doors.)

(Hiro and Ando look out the van at the "Big Boss.")

HIRO: (subtitled) Father?

(Mr. Nakamura doesn’t look pleased at all.)

(Hiro swallows.)

HIRO: (subtitled) GULP!

CUT TO:



[INT. (ODESSA) BENNET RESIDENCE – CLAIRE’S BEDROOM -- NIGHT]

(Claire dials her cell phone as she tries another phone number. She sighs as the line rings.)

(The phone clicks.)

WOMAN: Hello?

CLAIRE: (to phone) Hi, I'm looking for someone related to Meredith Gordon. She died in an explosion fourteen years ago.

INTERCUT WITH:

[INT. ROOM – NIGHT]

CLAIRE: (from phone) I've been calling everyone in Kermit with the last name of "Gordon." Any chance that you're related to her?

WOMAN: Who is this?

CLAIRE: My name's Claire Bennet, I'm calling from Odessa.

WOMAN: What -- What is this about? And how do you know the name "Meredith Gordon"?

CLAIRE: I think she was my mom.

WOMAN: Is this some kind of joke?

CLAIRE: No, ma'am.

WOMAN: Well, Meredith only had one daughter, and she died in the fire.

CLAIRE: That's kind of what I'm trying to say is ... I didn't die. I think I'm her and I'm looking for any information I can find about my mom.

WOMAN: Well, then you made the right call. This is her.

CLAIRE: Mom?

(The woman puts a cigarette she’s been holding between her lips. She holds her fingers to the end of the cigarette and flames appear from her fingertips. She lights up and inhales.)

(She grabs the cigarette, exhales and smiles.)

MEREDITH GORDON: (nods) Yeah.

FADE TO WHITE:



[INT. PRIMATECH PAPER – SYLAR’S CELL – NIGHT]

(The outer door opens and Mr. Bennet walks in. He turns the cell light on and sees the sheet-covered body on the bed in the center of the room. He heads for the cell door.)

(He enters the cell.)

(He walks over to the body, leans forward and pulls away the sheet.)

(It is not Sylar. It is the doctor. And he’s dead.)

(Mr. Bennet gasps and pulls back. He turns around and there is SYLAR standing off to the side and behind him.)

(OFF SYLAR: We see there’s an implant on the back right side of his head. Mr. Bennet looks scared.)

SYLAR: How's Claire?

(We hold on Mr. Bennet.)

FADE TO BLACK.
