Hiro et Ando sont de retour à New York, après leur voyage dans le futur. Ils sont déterminés à changer le cours du destin pour ne pas avoir à connaître un futur aussi mauvais. Ils suivent pour cela l’histoire de la dernière BD de Isaac, que Hiro a rapporté du futur, et qui le montre entrain de tuer Sylar avec son épée. Mais la BD est inachevée, il manque les dialogues. Hiro propose alors d’aller voir Isaac, pour lui demander son aide.

 

Dans la maison des Petrelli, à Manhattan, Peter est dans le salon, il dessin des images du futur, montrant la ville en feu et des affiches de l’élection de son frère. Heidi Petrelli et leurs deux fils rentrent chez eux. Nathan vient les accueillir, et Claire les regarde du haut de l’escalier. Peter la voit, et elle lui sourit, un peu mal à l’aise de voir son père avec sa famille.

Angela Petrelli est entrain de préparer la valise de Claire pour partir à Paris. Peter vient les voir, et Angela les laisse seuls pour parler. Peter dit à Claire qu’elle ne doit pas partir, mais elle lui dit qu’elle n’a pas le choix, au moins jusqu’à la fin des élections. Il lui dit que ce n’est pas un hasard s’il la sauvé à son lycée, pour ensuite découvrir qu’elle était sa nièce, mais elle n’a pas envie de l’écouter, tout ce qu’elle veut c’est une vie normale, et sans danger. Peter lui révèle alors qu’il va exploser et détruire New York, et Claire fait le rapprochement avec Ted.

 

A St Louis, dans le Missouri, Bennet, Parkman et Ted continuent leur voyage vers New York. Matt s’arrête pour téléphoner à sa femme, mais Bennet l’en empêche. Il lui dit qu’il ne peut pas prendre autant de risque, à cause du système de localisation que possède la compagnie. Pendant ce temps, Ted, à l’aide de son pouvoir, vole une voiture.

 

Sylar est dans le loft de Isaac, il peint une image du futur, le montrant s’avançant vers Ted, pour prendre son pouvoir. Il comprend qu’il va peut-être exploser. On voit alors que le cadavre de Isaac est toujours étendu sur le sol.

 

Mohinder s’apprête à quitter son appartement quand le téléphone sonne. C’est Sylar. Il lui dit qu’il a besoin de son aide, car il va faire quelque chose de très mal. Mohinder réplique qu’il est déjà un assassin, que ce n’est plus le moment d’avoir des regrets, mais Sylar lui explique que les meurtres qu’il a commis avaient une raison. Il s’agissait de prendre ce que les autres ne méritaient pas, c’est une sélection naturelle, mais cette fois, les habitants de New York qui vont mourir dans l’explosion sont insignifiants, il n’a aucune raison pour tuer autant de personnes. Alors qu’il parle, Mohinder compose le numéro de la police, mais Sylar l’entend grâce au pouvoir de Dale, et il se rend compte que c’était une mauvaise idée de l’appeler. Il raccroche.

 

A Las Vegas, chez les Sanders. DL veut savoir où est son fils, et il accuse Jessica d’avoir laissé Linderman emmener son Micah. Il ajoute qu’il en a marre d’elle, et qu’il part chercher son fils seul. Niki demande alors à Jessica d’aller sauver son fils, car DL va se faire tuer s’il y va seul. Jessica part à la suite de DL.

 

Micah joue à un jeu vidéo dans l’appartement  d’un hôtel de Linderman. Candice parle au téléphone avec son patron, elle lui dit que tout ce passe bien. Elle ajoute qu’elle voudrait se rendre un peu plus utile, qu’avec le don qu’elle possède elle le mérite. Mais Linderman lui demande de rester avec Micah. Elle reprend l’apparence de Niki, et Micah lui dit qu’il n’aime pas Linderman, et qu’il n’aime pas rester ici. Le garçon commence à trouver l’attitude de sa mère étrange.

 

Mohinder et Thompson se retrouvent au Kirby Plaza, au pied de l’immeuble de Linderman où se trouve Micah. Thompson lui demande s’il accepte enfin de travailler pour eux, mais Mohinder répond que non. Par contre, c’est Thompson qui va travailler pour lui, il devra lui donner toutes les informations qu’ils possèdent pour que Mohinder s’en serve pour tuer Sylar, car il est le seul à pouvoir trouver plus de personnes avec des pouvoirs, grâce à la formule de son père. C’est Thompson qui a besoin de lui, et pas l’inverse. Thompson finit par accepter son offre.

Il l’emmène dans l’un des leurs bureaux, pour lui présenter une personne. Il s’agit de la petite Molly Walker, que Matt Parkman avait retrouvé sous l’escalier chez elle, après que Sylar ait tué ses parents. En regardant les dossiers de Molly, Mohinder se rend compte qu’elle est malade. Thompson lui dit qu’un virus très rare détruit le système nerveux de Molly, et que seul Mohinder est capable de trouver un traitement pour la sauver. Il ajoute que ce virus l’empêche d’utiliser son pouvoir, et qu’il n’a existé qu’un seul autre cas similaire, celui d’une jeune fille indienne dans les années 70. Il est entrain de parler de Shanti, la sœur de Mohinder. Celui-ci ce met en colère, car il pense que Thompson est entrain de le manipuler avec Molly pour qu’il soit à ses ordres, mais Thompson lui dit qu’en vérité, Molly est la seule capable d’arrêter Sylar.

 

Sylar est au téléphone. Il demande à une personne s’il peut passer la voir pour discuter.

 

Hiro et Ando arrivent au loft d’Isaac. Sylar est dans la salle de bain quand ils entrent. Ils découvrent le corps de Isaac, et Hiro est apeuré de voir qu’Isaac est mort exactement comme dans son premier voyage dans le futur. Sylar sort de la salle de bain, et Hiro et Ando se dépêchent de se cacher derrière un tableau. Sans se faire voir, Hiro regarde par-dessus le tableau et reconnaît Sylar. Il montre à Ando la BD représentant Sylar, et lorsque Ando dégluti, Sylar l’entend et se retourne. Il s’avance vers le tableau, et entend les battements de cœur de Hiro et Ando. Il leur dit qu’il les entend, et leur demande de sortir. Mais ne voyant personne, il utilise son pouvoir pour faire voler le tableau à l’autre bout de la pièce. Et là surprise, il n’y a plus personne.

 

Hiro et Ando réapparaissent dans un supermarché. Dehors, Sylar passe juste devant eux, avec un paquet sous le bras, et ils décident de le suivre. Hiro n’est pas ravi par cette idée dans un premier temps, car la BD précise qu’il doit le tuer après l’élection, mais Ando finit par le convaincre.

 

Au Corinthian Hotel, à Las Vegas. Jessica et DL traverse le mur pour rentrer dans la galerie d’art de Linderman. Il découvre un tableau représentant Micah devant un immeuble et la ville en feu autour de lui. Jessica voit aussi le tableau la représentant, et DL découvre leur bulletin d’enfance, leur carnet de santé, et pleins d’autres documents concernant toute leur vie et leur famille. DL commence à fouiller dans les papiers de Linderman, mais il n’y a rien d’intéressant.

 

Mohinder va rencontrer Molly, en lui disant qu’il est son nouveau médecin. Il lui prend un échantillon de sang, et il lui dit qu’il veut arrêter l’homme qui a fait du mal à sa famille. Mais la petite fille lui dit qu’il ne peut pas l’arrêter. Il réplique qu’elle a un pouvoir incroyable, et qu’elle pourra l’arrêter, mais elle répond que ce n’est pas grand-chose, elle peut seulement savoir où se trouvent les gens qui ont des pouvoirs. Molly est le système de détection de la compagnie dont parlait Bennet. La fillette semble apprécier Mohinder plus que ces anciens médecins.

 

Claire a avoué à Nathan que Ted a fait exploser sa maison. Peter trouve que c’est une bonne nouvelle car il n’est peut-être pas celui qui va exploser après tout, et Nathan réplique qu’il a rêvé qu’il allait exploser. Peter lui dit qu’il a aussi rêvé qu’il pouvait voler alors qu’en vérité c’est Nathan qui le peut. Claire est surprise d’apprendre que son père a aussi un pouvoir. Peter conseille à son frère d’appeler la police pour qu’ils arrêtent Ted avant les élections, et Nathan lui dit qu’il va le faire. Puis il ajoute envers Claire qu’il sait qu’elle a traversé beaucoup d’épreuves, et il lui dit qu’il l’admire pour ça. Peter et Claire s’en vont, et Nathan appelle Linderman pour lui dire qu’ils ont un problème.

 

Sylar arrive chez la personne qu’il a appelée. C’est sa mère. Ando et Hiro l’observe à travers une fenêtre. Gabriel donne son cadeau à sa mère. C’est une boule de cristal, pour compléter sa collection. Sylar remarque que l’horloge est cassée, mais sa mère s’en moque. Il commence à la réparer. Elle lui dit qu’elle est très fière de lui, car il a beaucoup voyagé, et il lui dit alors qu’il en a marre de voyager, mais elle ne comprend pas qu’il veuille rester à New York. Elle lui propose de lui préparer un sandwich, mais il n’en veut pas. Elle le fait quand même. Puis elle lui parle d’un ancien client à Gabriel qu’il devrait appeler pour demander du travail. Il refuse, lui disant qu’il a déjà un travail, qu’il est horloger, et ils commencent à se disputer. Il l’accuse de ne pas l’écouter, car elle lui prépare un sandwich même s’il lui a dit de ne pas le faire. Puis il s’excuse, il lui dit qu’il n’a peut-être pas à être spécial après tout, mais elle n’est pas de son avis, elle trouve que c’est une bonne chose d’être spécial. Elle lui dit que s’il le voulait, il pourrait être président.

 

Claire et Peter viennent d’arriver au bureau de Nathan. Tout le monde est en effervescence au sujet de l’élection. C’est alors que Claire remarque un homme qu’elle connaît dans le bureau de Nathan. Il s’agit de Thompson. Elle veut partir immédiatement, mais Peter la retient.

Nathan parle de ses doutes à Thompson, au sujet des capacités de Linderman à le faire élire Président. Puis il lui demande s’il connaît un certain Ted Sprague, et quand Thompson lui répond par l’affirmative, Nathan se met en colère. Il n’apprécie pas qu’on lui cache des informations importantes.

Claire veut quitter le bâtiment, mais Peter lui dit d’attendre de savoir de quoi il retourne.

Thompson dit à Nathan qu’il est nerveux, et Nathan réplique que c’est normal puisqu’ils ont l’intention de laisser détruire la moitié de New York.

Claire dit à Peter que son problème c’est qu’il a peur, et qu’il n’a qu’à s’enfuir. Mais il réplique que s’il sauve leurs vies, qui sauvera tous les autres.

 

Candice, sous l’apparence de Niki, dit à Micah qu’elle va prendre une douche. Il en profite pour sortir de l’appartement, en déverrouillant la porte grâce à son pouvoir. Il s’enfuit dans les couloirs, et rentre dans un autre appartement. Il se rend compte qu’il ressemble exactement à celui où il était retenu. Il en essaye un autre, et retombe sur le même appartement. Candice sort alors de la douche, et lui explique qu’elle peut lui faire voir ce qu’elle veut. Du coup ça n’est pas facile de s’échapper.

 

Hiro et Ando font le tour de l’immeuble pour regarder ce qui ce passe entre Gabriel et sa mère. Il vient de finir de manger son sandwich, et elle fait la vaisselle. Il lui annonce qu’il peut être spécial, et il décide alors de lui montrer ses pouvoirs. Il s’empare du jet d’eau, et il transforme l’eau en glace, pour obtenir la même neige qu’il y a dans les boules de cristal de sa mère. Elle n’en revient pas. Puis il se met à faire voler des objets tout autour d’eux dans la pièce, et sa mère remarque qu’il n’est plus le même, il a une lueur mauvaise dans le regard. La situation dégénère rapidement, et sa mère est blessée par une boule de cristal qui lui explose sur le visage.

 

Mohinder continue d’analyser le sang de Molly, mais il ne trouve pas ce qu’elle a. Il balance ses affaires par terre, ce qui fait venir la fillette. Elle lui dit que ce n’est pas grave s’il ne peut pas l’aider. Il lui dit qu’il devrait pouvoir, car son père avait trouvé un remède. Il lui raconte l’histoire de sa sœur. Puis il lui promet qu’il ne va pas la laisser mourir. Elle lui donne un dessin, représentant une étoile, en lui disant que ça le protègera de Sylar, qu’elle surnomme le croque-mitaine.

 

Hiro et Ando continuent d’observer Sylar. Sa mère s’est enfermée dans sa chambre, et il la supplie de lui pardonner. Hiro a pitié de lui, car il est triste. Ando lui dit que c’est le moment d’aller le tuer, car il ne fait pas attention, mais Hiro ne peut pas.

Sylar avoue à sa mère qu’il va tuer beaucoup de personnes, et il lui demande pourquoi il ferait ça.

Ando essaye de faire changer d’avis son ami, mais Hiro lui dit qu’il ne veut pas devenir la personne qu’ils ont rencontré dans le futur. Ando lui apprend alors qu’il va se faire tuer par Sylar dans le futur.

La mère de Sylar sort enfin de sa chambre. Elle lui dit qu’il doit partir, car il n’est pas son fils. Il essaye de la calmer, mais elle a peur de lui. Elle s’empare d’une paire de ciseaux, qu’il essaye de lui prendre, et finalement il lui plante les ciseaux dans la poitrine, par accident. Elle commence à s’effondrer, mais le temps s’arrête. Hiro entre dans l’appartement. Il sort son épée et s’approche de Sylar. Au moment de le frapper, Sylar défige le temps. Sa mère tombe sur le sol, et il retient l’épée de Hiro. Il gèle l’épée, au moment où Ando entre à son tour dans la pièce. Hiro l’attrape et ils se téléportent. Sylar regarde sa mère morte sur le sol, perplexe.

 

Mohinder a trouvé un traitement pour Molly. Il installe la perfusion en lui expliquant que l’anticorps dont elle a besoin se trouve dans son sang à lui. Il ajoute qu’il est né trop tard pour sauver sa sœur, mais pas pour la sauver elle.

 

Hiro et Ando réapparaissent dans le loft d’Isaac. Hiro s’excuse de ne pas avoir tuer Sylar, et par le même coup de ne pas avoir sauver la vie de son ami. Il lui montre alors son épée. Elle est cassée en deux au niveau où Sylar la gélée.

 

Peter cherche un objet dans un tiroir. Il en sort une arme. Claire descend les escaliers avec sa valise. Peter lui donne l’arme, en lui expliquant que s’il devient nucléaire, elle sera la seule personne à pouvoir l’approcher d’assez prêt pour le tuer. Elle commence par refuser de l’écouter, mais il arrive à la convaincre, en lui montrant les dessins qu’il a fait du futur, montrant la ville en feu. Sur l’un d’eux, elle reconnaît Ted. Il ajoute qu’il s’agit du Kirby Plaza, à New York. Ce qui signifie que Ted est en ville. Claire finit par prendre l’arme de Peter.

 

Dans son bureau, Nathan reçoit la visite de sa mère. Elle lui dit qu’elle comprend qu’il soit hésitant, et aussi qu’elle sait ce que compte faire Linderman. Elle avoue avoir prit part à toutes les préparations du projet de Linderman, et elle ajoute qu’il faut parfois prendre des décisions difficiles pour sauver encore plus de monde. Selon elle, la plus grande faiblesse de son fils c’est qu’il n’a pas foi en l’humanité. Elle lui dit que sa destiné, après l’explosion de la bombe, est d’être le leader qui changera le monde, qui l’améliorera.

 

Sylar est toujours chez sa mère, il a peint l’explosion de New York avec le sang de sa mère.

 

Au Kirby Plaza, Claire dit à Peter qu’elle n’est pas normale, mais qu’en essayant de l’être, elle a fait du mal a beaucoup de monde auquel elle tenait. Il essaye de la consoler un peu, et elle aperçoit alors au loin son père qui s’avance vers elle, accompagné de Ted et Matt. Elle court dans les bras de son père, mais les réjouissances sont de courte durée, car Peter commence à absorber le pouvoir de Ted. Ses mains deviennent rouges et lumineuses, et il ne parvient pas à contrôler les radiations. Ils le regardent tous, alors qu’il commence à paniquer.

SYLAR: (v.o.) I'm going to explode? Is this my future? Is that what you saw, Isaac?

MOHINDER: (to phone) Hello?

SYLAR: (from phone) Mohinder, I need your help.

MOHINDER: (to phone) Sylar?

INTERCUT WITH:

(Sylar stares at the painting.)

SYLAR: I think I'm gonna do something bad.

MOHINDER: You're a murderer. You don't get the luxury of regret.

SYLAR: You don't understand. I think I'm gonna kill a lot more people.

(Mohinder reaches into his jacket pocket and takes his cell phone out.)

SYLAR: A lot more. I understood it before -- the killing. I had a reason. To take what others didn't deserve. It was natural selection.

MOHINDER: (to phone) What are you talking about?

(Sylar strokes Isaac’s Exploding Man painting.)

SYLAR: An apocalypse. (He turns and looks at the floor mural.) A massacre. (He kneels.) Half the city gone in an instant. They mean nothing. They're innocent. There's no gain, so why would I do it? What possible reason could I have for killing so many?

(Mohinder dials his cell phone.)

MOHINDER: Wait, listen. You don't have to. If you're truly repentant about what you've done, turn yourself in.

(Sylar stands up.)

SYLAR: I can hear you dialing 911. It was a mistake to call.

MOHINDER: No, wait, Sylar--Sylar!

(Sylar hangs up.)

(Jessica is in front of the closet mirrors while DL is talking to her.)

DL: That's Linderman's casino. What aren't you telling me?

JESSICA: Linderman said that he needed Micah for a job.

DL: A job? He's ten years old, and you let him go?!

JESSICA: Of course not. I told him no.

DL: What have you done?

JESSICA: Me? It was Linderman.

DL: No, this is your fault! Your responsibility. I'm done with you. I'll get Micah my damn self.

(DL leaves the room. A moment later, the front door slams.)

NIKI: (o.s.) Don't let him go.

(She hangs up. She moves around the kitchen column and changes into "Jessica".)

MICAH: Who was on the phone?

CANDICE (AS JESSICA): It was Mr. Linderman. He wanted to make sure that you were ready for tomorrow. Isn't that nice?

(She walks over to him.)

MICAH: Mom, I don't like Mr. Linderman.


CANDICE (AS JESSICA): Well, why not?

MICAH: I don't know. He smells funny. Mom, I don't like it here. I don't want to do this.

CANDICE (AS JESSICA): Micah--

MICAH: I want to go home.

CANDICE (AS JESSICA): Mr. Linderman helped us, and now we have to help him. That's the last that I want to talk about it, okay?

MICAH: But, Mom, I just don't--

CANDICE (AS JESSICA): (firmly) Micah, that's enough.

(Micah is quiet.)

(She kneels in front of him.)

CANDICE (AS JESSICA): Hey ... You know that I would never let anything bad happen to you, right? Give me a smile.

THOMPSON: It's good to see you again, Professor.

(Mohinder doesn’t shake his hand.)

THOMPSON: So, have you thought about my offer? Are you ready to come to work for us?

MOHINDER: As far as I can tell, you're all a bunch of untrustworthy gundas.

THOMPSON: Is that a no?

MOHINDER: No, I'm not going to work for you -- you're going to work for me. You're going to show me everything you do, everything you know, and I'm going to use it to help me stop Sylar.

THOMPSON: And why would I do that?

MOHINDER: You raided my father's office in Chennai, planted Eden as my next-door neighbor. You want what I have -- the formula. I can find more of them. You're the one who needs me.

THOMPSON: Some people died because you led Sylar right to them. And now you blame yourself, so you become a vigilante. Hmm, that's cute.

MOHINDER: Is that a no?

THOMPSON: What choice do I have?

MOHINDER: What is this place?

(Thompson closes the door.)

THOMPSON: There's someone you need to meet. Molly Walker. Does the name ring any bells?

MOHINDER: Yeah, she was on my father's list.

THOMPSON: That's right. Your father led Sylar right to her. He slaughtered her parents, then attacked her.

(Mohinder looks at the computer nearest him.)

MOHINDER: How did she survive?

THOMPSON: Well, luckily, we got to her. That's what we do. We find people with abilities, help them, protect them.

MOHINDER: And she's sick, isn't she?

THOMPSON: How can you tell?

(Mohinder is looking at Molly’s cells on the computer.)

MOHINDER: Her nucleotides are decomposing. You need to get her to a doctor.

THOMPSON: A doctor can't help her. I'm thinking maybe you can.

MOHINDER: I'm a geneticist. I wouldn't know the first thing about this.

THOMPSON: Molly's virus is very rare. It's destroying her nervous system. Prevents her from accessing her ability. There's been one other case: an Indian girl, 1974.

MOHINDER: My sister. Shanti died.

THOMPSON: Yes, we know.

(Thompson leads Mohinder to a section of the lab surrounded by a curtain. He pulls the curtain open to reveal a glass little girl’s room. Molly sits inside the room. She sees Thompson and waves.)

THOMPSON: Sadly, your father developed a cure months too late. Unfortunately for Molly, our people can't figure out what that cure is. Cute, huh?

MOHINDER: You're trying to manipulate me? Showing me this poor girl, preying on Shanti's memory. Sylar is out there, and he's planning a slaughter. Everyone is in danger, and this -- none of this is going to help.

THOMPSON: You just don't get it. Molly is the only one who can stop Sylar.

ANDO: (subtitled) Are you sure you’re ready? For this?

HIRO: (subtitled) -- the bomb?

(Hiro looks at Ando.)

(Hiro and Ando quickly duck behind Sylar’s painting.)

(Sylar gets out of the bathroom. He’s dressed demurely in his Gabriel Gray sweater, slacks and glasses. He turns to get his glasses from the table.)

(Hiro peeks out from above the painting and sees who it is.)

(He shows Ando the comic book and points to Sylar’s picture. Ando swallows hard.)

GULP!

(Sylar hears him and turns. Someone else is in the loft. He takes off his glasses and listens. He looks immediately at the painting.)

DL: You're lucky I didn't leave your ass stuck in the wall after what you've done. What the hell is this place?

JESSICA: It's where Linderman restores his art. He usually hangs out in here.

(DL walks over to a painting on the wall.)

DL: What's that? Is that supposed to be--

(It looks like Micah trapped inside a building while around him New York burns.)

JESSICA: Micah?

DL: Where is he?

JESSICA: I don't know--New York, maybe?

JESSICA: No. No, this is crazy.

DL: Nobody does what you and I can do ... what Micah can do -- nobody. My life. Me and Niki, everything we had, it was -- it wasn't real. It was all Linderman's science experiment. All this time Linderman's just been playing with our lives.

(A file labeled DL HAWKINS catches his eye. He opens it and looks through it.)

JESSICA: What are you doing? Linderman obviously isn't here. We're wasting our time.

DL: If Linderman knows this much about us, he must know something about Micah--where he went, what he's doing. Linderman went to New York.

MOHINDER: Molly, I want to stop the man who hurt your family, and who tried to hurt you.

MOLLY WALKER: You can't stop the boogeyman. He sees into your soul, and then he eats your brain.

MOHINDER: Well, you know who can stop the boogeyman? You. I hear you have an amazing ability.

MOLLY WALKER: It's not so amazing. They ask me where people are, and I find them.

(She flinches from the needle.)

MOHINDER: You find them? Anywhere in the world?

MOLLY WALKER: Yeah, I just think about them, and then I know where they are.

(Mohinder takes in the implications of that ability.)

MOLLY WALKER: But it doesn't work right now.

MOHINDER: Well, that is a very special ability, Molly. Because the boogeyman, he likes to hide. But if you can tell us where he is, we can make sure he never comes back again.

(Sylar opens the white box.)

SYLAR: Um, I brought it from Texas. It's ... for your collection.

(Virginia takes out the snow globe and turns it to watch the snow fall.)

VIRGINIA: Perfect! One more and I have the continent. I'm just missing Oregon.

(She puts the snow globe in the center of the shelf. It’s bigger than the others.)

VIRGINIA: I hear it's beautiful there. Green everywhere.

(She strokes the globe as she watches the snow fall.)

(Sylar looks off to the side.)

SYLAR: The clock's broken.

VIRGINIA: Oh, that old thing. I should have thrown it away years ago.

(Sylar gently takes the old wooden clock off the wall.)

SYLAR: It was Dad's.

VIRGINIA: It's junk.

SYLAR: It's a beautiful piece. It just needs a little attention.

(Sylar puts the clock on the table and prepares to work on it.)

(Virginia picks up a particular snow globe with a picture inside of Sylar when he was a child. She looks at it. Sylar takes out a tray of tools and sets it on the table next to the clock.)

(Virginia moves quickly to push his chair in as he sits. Sylar opens the clock cover, his attention completely on the broken clock. Virginia lightly strokes Sylar’s hair.)

VIRGINIA: I can tell you how proud I am.

SYLAR: (scoffs) I haven't done anything.

(Virginia sits down next to him.)

VIRGINIA: You've traveled the world. Some of us only get to see it in snow globes.

SYLAR: I'm tired of traveling. I think I might stay here.

VIRGINIA: In Queens? Why would you ever come back?

SYLAR: If I stayed, maybe I could stop. Maybe I wouldn't have to ...

(He turns his attention back to the clock.)

VIRGINIA: What? Gabriel. (suddenly) I'm gonna make you a sandwich. (She gets up and heads for the kitchen.) You want tuna fish?

SYLAR: Please don't; I'm not hungry.

(She starts taking out the things from the refrigerator.)

VIRGINIA: Well ... if you insist on staying -- you should call Mr. Bilger -- that man from Smith & Barney. You fixed his Rolex.

SYLAR: Why would I call him?

VIRGINIA: Because he said you should. He said you were very talented, and very special. M--Maybe he could get you a job.

SYLAR: I have a job. I fix watches.

(He finishes and takes his glasses off. He stands up.)

VIRGINIA: That's a hobby. Investment banking is a very lucrative field.

(Sylar hangs the clock back up on the wall.)

SYLAR: I can't be an investment banker.

VIRGINIA: You could be anything you want.

SYLAR: Mom, he wouldn't even remember who I am.

VIRGINIA: Who could forget you?

SYLAR: You're not even listening to me!

VIRGINIA: I am listening.

SYLAR: No. You're making a tuna sandwich.

VIRGINIA: So?

SYLAR: I asked you not to.

(Virginia closes the mayonnaise jar and gathers the sandwich items.)

VIRGINIA: (upset) I made a mistake. I'm sorry!

(She puts the things back in the refrigerator. Sylar goes to her.)

SYLAR: Mom -- Mom, don't.

(She fights him a little, then stops.)

SYLAR: Don't, it's just ... (sighs) ... maybe I don't have to be special. That's okay to just be a normal watchmaker. Can't you just tell me that's enough?

CLAIRE: Wait.

CLAIRE: (gasps) That man. That's the man my father works for. He's the one I've been running from. I’ve got to get out of here.

PETER: 'Cause he's my brother.

CLAIRE: The truth is, you have no idea what's gonna happen.

NATHAN: Nervous? You want to blow up half of New York.

THOMPSON: Yes, we do.

CLAIRE: Then run the other way.

PETER: I can't.

CLAIRE: Why not?

PETER: Because if we save ourselves, who's gonna save everyone else?

(Sylar covers the water spraying out into the living room with his other hand.)

(Hiro and Ando watch through the living room window.)

(Sylar uses a light touch of freezing power to turn the water spray into flurries. Hiro smiles as he watches. Virginia steps out into the living room under the shower of snow falling.)

(Sylar smiles, pleased with the trick.)

(Virginia turns under the falling snow, laughing with delight. It’s as if she’s standing in her own snow globe.)

SYLAR: I know how much you love snow globes.

VIRGINIA: How - how did you ...

(Virginia turns to look at Sylar, but he’s not paying any attention to her. He continues to freeze the water spray into snow. Virginia’s delight fades, her smile falls off her face. A wind blows through the room.)

VIRGINIA: Gabriel?

(Sylar isn’t paying attention to her. He smiles at using the power. The earth rumbles and the floor shakes)

VIRGINIA: (scared) Gabriel?

(He looks intensely back at her. Suddenly, a snow globe on the shelf flies off and circles around the room. Virginia ducks, trying to avoid getting hit by the heavy object.)

VIRGINIA: Ow!

(Hiro and Ando watch from the window as things go horribly wrong. Sylar continues to use his powers. More snow globes fly off the shelves and circle the room. The falling snow blows heavily. Virginia cries out and dodges the flying globes.)

VIRGINIA: Aah!

(A snow globe breaks, the glass cuts her cheek. Finally, Sylar sees the blood.)

(Virginia runs out of the room.)

FADE OUT.

(COMMERCIAL SET)



FADE IN:

[INT. KIRBY PLAZA BUILDING – MEDICAL OFFICES – NIGHT]

(Mohinder looks through the scope. He sighs heavily. He pushes the chair back and rolls away from the table. Frustrated, he hurls the papers on the table to the floor.)

(In the background, we see the door to Molly’s room open as she rushes out to see what’s happened.)

MOHINDER: I'm sorry, Molly. I didn't mean to frighten you.

MOLLY WALKER: (shrugs) You can't help me either. It's okay.

(Mohinder kneels and starts picking up the papers off the floor. Molly kneels to help him.)

MOHINDER: No, actually, my father did find a cure. It's called an antibody. Unfortunately, we don't know where or what it is.

MOLLY WALKER: It's hiding, like the boogeyman.

MOHINDER: Exactly.

(Molly takes an old photo out of a file.)

MOLLY WALKER: Who's that?

(Mohinder looks at an old photo of his dad, his pregnant mom and his sister.)

MOHINDER: It's my sister Shanti.

MOLLY WALKER: She's very pretty.

MOHINDER: This is the first time I've ever seen her. She died before I was born.

MOLLY WALKER: Am I going to die?

MOHINDER: Molly, my father did everything he could to save my sister. He was just a few months too late. I won't be, I promise.

(Molly reaches into her pocket and takes out a folded piece of paper.)

MOHINDER: Oh -- What's this?

MOLLY WALKER: It'll protect you from the boogeyman.

(Mohinder opens the paper to see she has a gold star drawn on it. He smiles.)

MOHINDER: Thank you.

(Molly gives Mohinder a hug. Mohinder hugs Molly back. She gets up and heads back to her room.)

(Mohinder looks at the gold star and at the photo of his family. He thinks about it and looks back at the computer image of Molly’s cells.)

CUT TO:



[EXT. VIRGINIA’S BUILDING -- NIGHT]

(Hiro and Ando continue to watch Sylar through the window.)



[INT. VIRGINIA’S APARTMENT (#6) -- NIGHT]

(Sylar knocks softly on the closed bedroom door.)

SYLAR: Please. I'm sorry I scared you, just come out and talk to me. Please.

(Inside the bedroom, Virginia is on her knees against the bed as she cries.)

(Sylar talks quietly to the door.)

SYLAR: Mom?



[EXT. VIRGINIA’S BUILDING -- NIGHT]

HIRO: (subtitled) He’s so sad.

ANDO: (subtitled) He’s distracted. Go on. Do it.

HIRO: (subtitled) I can’t kill a man who is asking for forgiveness. It’s not the Bushido code. Everyone deserves a second chance.

ANDO: (subtitled) No, Hiro. Not everyone.

HIRO: (subtitled) You don’t understand. You’re not ending another person’s life ...

(Hiro turns away. Ando quickly blocks his way.)

ANDO: (subtitled) Future Hiro would not hesitate to chop his head off.

HIRO: (subtitled) I’m not Future Hiro! I don’t want to be him!

CUT TO:



[INT. VIRGINIA’S APARTMENT (#6) -- NIGHT]

SYLAR: I saw a vision of the future ... and I'm gonna kill a lot of people. Tell me why I would do that.

(He turns around and slides down to sit on the floor, his eyes closed and his back to the door.)



[EXT. VIRGINIA’S BUILDING -- NIGHT]

HIRO: (subtitled): Future Hiro killed so much, he forgot it should be hard.



[INT. VIRGINIA’S APARTMENT (#6) -- NIGHT]

SYLAR: Mom?

(He hits the back of his head against the door in frustration. THUMP – THUMP – THUMP)

SYLAR: Mom?!

(THUMP – THUMP)

(He sighs and presses the heel of his hand to his eyes.)



[EXT. VIRGINIA’S BUILDING -- NIGHT]

ANDO: (subtitled) When we went to the future, didn’t you wonder where Future Ando was?

(Ando unfolds the comic book page and shows Hiro two panels – one of New York on fire and the other of Ando’s broken body on the ground.)

ANDO: (subtitled) I die. Sylar kills me.

(Hiro looks at Ando.)



[INT. VIRGINIA’S APARTMENT (#6) -- NIGHT]

(The bedroom door opens. Sylar quickly gets to his feet. Virginia exits the room and closes the door behind her.)

VIRGINIA: I'm leaving. And when I get back, I expect you to be gone.

(She walks past him. Sylar follows her.)

SYLAR: Don't say that, Mom. It's me -- it's Gabriel.

(She whirls around.)

VIRGINIA: You're not Gabriel. You're damned. And I want you out of my house.

(He grabs her wrist and she immediately starts fighting him.)

SYLAR: Mom--

VIRGINIA: Let go! Get away from me!

SYLAR: Mom, calm down.

VIRGINIA: Get away!

SYLAR: Calm down.

(She pulls out of his grip.)

VIRGINIA: (pleading) I want my son. What did you do with my son? Give me back my boy.

SYLAR: Mom, please, it's me. It's me, Mom, please...

(Scared, Virginia backs away from him. She reaches down into her knitting basket and pulls out a large pair of scissors. She holds it in front of her.)

SYLAR: No.

(Sylar tries to take it away from her.)

VIRGINIA: My Gabriel --

SYLAR: Mom, stop it, stop it!

(They struggle for the scissors.)

VIRGINIA: You're not--you're not!

SYLAR: Stop, stop.

VIRGINIA: (crying) You're not, you're not! You're not--

(In the struggle, Virginia is stabbed in the upper chest. Sylar takes a step backward and is absolutely horrified. Virginia looks down at the scissors in her chest. She falls forward and –

TIME FREEZES

(The front door opens and Hiro walks in. Virginia is at an angle, mid-fall.)

(Hiro takes out his sword. The door closes behind him. He walks up to Sylar.)

HIRO: I'm sorry.

(He puts the sword blade against Sylar’s throat and hesitates. He pulls back the sword to strike --

TIME RESUMES:

(Sylar’s eyes shift sideways toward Hiro. Virginia falls.)

HIRO: Hyah!

(Sylar grabs the sword with his bare hand, stopping Hiro’s sword from finding its mark. He turns toward Hiro. Virginia falls to the floor.)

SYLAR: That heartbeat ... You were in the loft. Why are you following me?

HIRO: (scared) I must stop you.

SYLAR: (dares) Then do it. (He pulls Hiro’s sword toward him.) Do it! Kill me!

(Sylar starts to ice Hiro’s sword. Hiro can’t get his sword out of Sylar’s grip.)

SYLAR: You can't, you coward. Now I'm gonna have to kill you.

(Kicking the door open, Ando bursts into the room.

ANDO: No! Hiro!

(Distracted by the interruption, Sylar looks up at Ando. Hiro reaches for Ando, puts a hand on his shoulder and teleports Ando, him and his sword out of the apartment.)

(They vanish.)

(Sylar looks around the empty apartment. He looks down and sees his mother dead on the floor.)

(He gasps.)

FADE OUT.

(COMMERCIAL SET)



FADE IN:

[INT. THE COMPANY BUILDING – LAB – DAY]

(Mohinder smiles as he hangs a bag up on the IV stand.)

MOLLY WALKER: You did it. You found the cure. Where was it?

MOHINDER: It was in me. Sometimes ... when a mommy and daddy have a sick child, they have another baby. A healthy baby with healthy antibodies. And if we're very lucky, the healthy baby's blood will heal the sick baby. Unfortunately, I was born a little too late to help my sister. But I'm not too late to help you.

(They smile at each other.)

CUT TO:



[INT. ISAAC’S LOFT -- NIGHT]

(Hiro and Ando appear in the loft.)

ANDO: (subtitled) What happened? Did you kill Sylar?

HIRO: (subtitled) I couldn’t. I failed. I failed you. I’m sorry Ando.

ANDO: (subtitled) You haven’t failed, Hiro. We still have two days to kill Sylar and stop the bomb.

HIRO: (subtitled) How? The sword is broken.

(He shows Ando the broken sword. He holds up both pieces.)

CUT TO:



[INT. (NEW YORK) PETRELLI MANSION – STUDY / FOYER -- DAY

(Peter opens the drawers in Nathan’s office and searches for something. He opens another drawer and takes out a gun. He hears footsteps coming down the stairs.)

(He walks out to the foyer and sees Claire coming down the stairs with her suitcase and jacket.)

PETER: You weren't even going to say goodbye?

CLAIRE: (sighs) Goodbye.

PETER: I think I figured a way for you to save the world.

(Peter holds the gun out for Claire. She looks at it. )

CLAIRE: (scoffs) That's how I save the world -- that's your plan?

PETER: I can handle Ted. But if I lose it, you're the only one who can get close enough to stop me.

(Claire looks at Peter, appalled.)

PETER: Right through the back of the head. You know the spot. Same place you pulled the piece of glass from.

(Claire ignores the gun and comes down the rest of the stairs.)

CLAIRE: My destiny is not to shoot you. The universe cannot be that lame.

PETER: You cannot run away from who you are, Claire. This bomb is happening.

CLAIRE: How can you be so sure?

(Peter puts the gun down on the foyer table and picks up his sketchbook.)

PETER: Because I can draw the future. I met a guy who can do it, now I can do it. You see?

(Peter shows Claire the sketch of New York burning, a VOTE PETRELLI poster in the foreground. Claire flips to the next page, showing another image of New York burning.)

PETER: Someone's gonna blow. Me, Ted -- it doesn't really matter. It's happening around the election, unless you stop it.

(Claire flips to another page. This one is of a close-up of Ted Sprague in front of a red stairway sculpture. His hands are glowing.)

CLAIRE: That's Ted. You drew Ted.

PETER: Are you sure?

CLAIRE: I'll never forget that face.

PETER: That's Kirby Plaza, midtown. Ted is here in New York. Don't you see, Claire? You're part of this. But you have to do this.

(He gives her the gun. She looks at it.)

CUT TO:



[INT. NATHAN’S OFFICE -- DAY]

(Nathan sits at his desk. He looks up when the door opens. Angela enters the office.)

ANGELA: Thank you, Brandon.

(Nathan gets to his feet.)

NATHAN: What are you doing here? I didn't think I'd see you till later tonight.

(Brandon closes the door.)

ANGELA: A mother can't be worried about her son on the most important day of his life?

(She hugs him.)

NATHAN: I was just working on the speech -- some details of the concession.

ANGELA: I'm not talking about the election. Linderman called me. He said you're getting cold feet. (She takes her gloves off and sits down.) It's natural to feel ambivalent. Nobody expects you to feel otherwise. So I wanted to give you perspective.

NATHAN: You know about Linderman's plans?

ANGELA: Yes. Well, they're not just Linderman's. A lot of people put time and care into making this a reality. Myself included.

NATHAN: You?

ANGELA: Yes, you don't know everything about me, Nathan. But I do know everything about you. And I know what you're capable of.

NATHAN: Do you think I'm a mass murderer?

ANGELA: Important men make impossible decisions. President Truman dropped two atomic bombs on Japan to end World War II. Killed thousands to save millions.

NATHAN: That was different, Ma; we were at war. I can't accept this.

ANGELA: That is your one weakness, Nathan -- you have no faith. So how could you possibly believe this bomb could actually heal the world if you have no faith in the idea of destiny?

(Nathan stands up.)

ANGELA: Your destiny, Nathan, is to set the course of history after this unspeakable act has occurred.

(She takes his jacket off the hanger.)

ANGELA: The people will look back on what you do as the freshman congressman from New York, and they will thank you–for your strength, for your conviction, for your faith.

(There’s a knock at the door. It’s his campaign manager.)

(Nathan motions for him to wait a minute.)

ANGELA: In my day, we called it being presidential.

(She holds the jacket out for him and helps put it on him. He turns and looks at her.)

ANGELA: Can you believe?

(He takes a couple of steps away from her, turns and looks at her again.)

ANGELA: Can you be the one we need?

(He sighs and looks at her.)

ANGELA: That's my boy.

CUT TO:



[INT. VIRGINIA’S APARTMENT (#6) -- DAY]

(Virginia is dead on the floor, the pair of scissors still in her chest. Sylar is kneeling on the floor behind her, panting as his hands move over the floor. Is he cleaning up the mess? We hear swishing sounds of his hands in blood.)

(He lifts up his hand and blood drips from his fingertips. He continues to work.)

(A SIDE VIEW of the floor shows Sylar’s hands red from blood as he pushes the blood around on the floor.)

(He looks up toward his mother’s body. His eyes are WHITE from his trance-like state.)

SYLAR: You were right, Mom. I am meant to be special, just like you wanted.

(CRANE UP over the floor and we see the mural painted in blood of a large mushroom-cloud explosion.)

SYLAR: I can be anything.

(He sits back on his heels.)

SYLAR: I can even be president.

CUT TO:



[EXT. KIRBY PLAZA (MIDTOWN) -- DAY]

(Claire sits on the edge of the water fountain and she watches people walk by – a boy and girl holding hands, a father walking with his daughter, and a mother talking with her daughter. She looks away, suddenly very lonely and longing for home.)

(Peter returns to her.)

PETER: There's no sign of him.

(He looks at her and sees her crying.)

PETER: What's wrong?

CLAIRE: I'm not normal. I tried to pretend that I was, and I just hurt everyone--my mom, my dad. I ruined everything because of what I am. I hated it. But you -- when I met you, I finally felt like I was a part of something.

PETER: That's funny. I felt the same thing when I met you.

(He brushes the tears from her face.)

(He watches her. Claire glances away for a moment and does a double-take.)

(Matt, Ted and Mr. Bennet are headed their way.)

CLAIRE: Dad.

(Claire gets up and runs to him.)

CLAIRE: Dad!

MR. BENNET: Claire!

(They hug.)

MR. BENNET: I love you, Claire Bear.

(Ted walks past Peter. Matt stops and looks at Peter. Ted stops behind Matt. Peter turns and looks at Ted.)

(Peter looks down at his glowing hands. It’s happening now!)

PETER: Claire?!

(Claire turns to look at Peter, her smile fades.)

TED: What's he doing?

MR. BENNET: He's absorbing your ability.

(Peter looks at Ted and at the others.)

MATT: He's gotta make it stop.

(He’s not sure he can. Peter’s hands continue to glow red and surge with power. He concentrates and tries to stop it before it’s too late.)

FADE TO BLACK.
