Peter est ligoté à une chaise, et Will lui lance un seau d'eau à la figure. Il a reçu pas mal de coup de poing à en juger par l'état de son visage. Il demande où est-ce qu'il est, et Tuko le frappe de plus bel. Ricky, leur chef, veut savoir où il a caché les ipods qu'ils devaient voler la veille. Mais Peter ne sait pas de quoi il parle, il ne se souvient même pas comment il est arrivé dans le container. Ricky lui conseille de vite se rappeler, car il est dans le pétrin. Puis il fait un signe de tête en direction de Tuko, qui recommence à frapper Peter.

Sandra Bennet est entrain de préparer à manger, et elle a fait tomber son alliance dans l'eau bouillante de la casserole. Claire arrive et plonge sa main dans l'eau. Elle devient toute rouge et brulée, mais guérie presque instantanément quand Claire retire sa main de l'eau. Sandra se retourne vers sa fille et lui dit qu'elle aurait pu utiliser la passoire, qu'elle n'a pas besoin de se faire remarquer. Claire lui demande si c'est aussi nécessaire qu'elle joue la comédie chez elle, parce que c'est déjà embêtant de faire profil bas à l'école. Noah Bennet entre à son tour dans la cuisine. Il revient de son nouveau travail. Il lui rappelle qu'ils lui ont juste demandé de ne pas se faire remarquer à l'école, mais Claire réplique que c'est justement les ados qui essayent de ne pas se faire remarquer que l'on remarque le plus. Elle leur dit qu'elle doit devenir quelqu'un, parce qu'elle n'arrive pas à faire semblant d'être une autre personne. Elle ajoute que pour lui s'est plus simple de faire semblant d'être inintéressant car son nouveau travail est ennuyeux à mourir. Mr Bennet réplique que son véritable travail consiste à protéger sa famille, et que si pour cela ils doivent faire semblant d'être comme tout le monde, et la forcer à mettre d'horrible T-shirt, pour pouvoir passer inaperçu et être en sécurité, c'est ce qu'il fera. Fin de la discussion. Elle l'embrasse, et lui demande pardon pour le changement de vie qu'il y  a eu pour eux. Il la rassure en lui disant que comparer à sa vie d'avant, maintenant il a l'impression d'être en vacances.
Claire par pour son nouveau lycée, dans sa nouvelle voiture.
Pendant ce temps, Sandra montre un article dans le journal à son mari, sur la mort de Kaito. Mr Bennet se doutait que ça allé arriver, et Sandra lui demande de lui raconter se qu'il se passe, car dans cette nouvelle vie ils ne doivent plus avoir de secrets les uns pour les autres. Il lui montre alors une des peintures d'Isaac qu'il a gardé avec lui, représentant Kaito mort sur le trottoir. Il ajoute que toutes les peintures d'Isaac c'étaient déjà réalisées, excepté 8 d'entre elles, dont celle sur la mort de Kaito, et qu'il ne possède que celle là. Cela veut dire qu'il existe encore 7 peintures prédisant l'avenir quelque part, et qu'il va les trouver.

Sur le toit de l'immeuble Deveaux. La police interroge Ando quand Matt et son supérieur, l'inspecteur Fuller arrivent. Il explique à Matt ce qui s'est passé, que la victime s'appelle Kaito Nakamura, et il lui montre une photo de Kaito avec le symbole dessiné en rouge sur son visage. Il lui demande s'il a déjà vu le symbole auparavant, et Matt répond que non. Puis on lui présente Ando, qui est témoin de la scène, et qui assure avoir vu quelqu'un pousser Mr Nakamura dans le vide et plonger en même temps que lui. Mais il n'y avait qu'un corps sur le trottoir. Fuller demande à Matt s'il connait quelqu'un qui peut voler ou disparaitre après une chute de 20 étages, et Matt se garde bien de répondre. Puis Fuller ajoute qu'ils ont pu identifier une empreinte sur la photo de Kaito. Il s'agit de celle d'Angela Petrelli.
Matt interroge ensuite Ando. Il lui demande s'il a déjà vu le symbole, et Ando lui explique que c'est un kanji, qui signifie grande faculté, envoyé de Dieu. Il ajoute que c'est la marque de Takezo Kensei, un héros Japonais du passé, dont Mr Nakamura comptait les histoires à son fils, Hiro. Matt lui dit qu'il doit parler à Hiro, et Ando réplique que lui aussi.

Hiro, qui se trouve à Otsu, dans le Japon de 1671, est entrain de courir vers le village. Une fois arrivé, il demande à une villageoise si elle n'aurait pas vu un homme blanc affolé. Elle lui montre du doigt Takezo, assis sous un arbre, ivre. Il soupire, et attrape Kensei par le col pour lui mettre la tête sous l'eau dans un abreuvoir. Il lui dit qu'ils doivent retrouver Yaeko avant qu'elle ne se fasse tuer. Takezo lui demande qui est Yaeko, et Hiro répond que c'est la fille dont il doit tomber éperdument amoureux, celle qui pour l'instant le déteste. Il lui replonge la tête sous l'eau, mais quand il le lâche enfin, Kensei tombe par terre, inconscient. Hiro ne sait pas quoi faire, car pour protéger le continuum espace-temps, Takezo Kensei doit devenir un héros tout de suite. Il voit alors l'armure de Kensei, et il remonte ses lunettes sur son nez, l'air décidé. Une fois déguisé en Kensei, il s'en va au triple galop.

Claire est en cours de sciences. Son professeur leur montre comment les pattes des tritons peuvent repousser et se régénérer. Il ajoute que ceux ne sont pas les seules espèces à le faire, car après des millions d'années de mutations génétiques, les lézards sont aussi capables de régénération cellulaire. Claire l'interrompe et lui demande s'il est possible pour des personnes de s'auto régénérer. Son prof lui répond que non, et que les recherches sur le sujet sont très controversées. Elle lui demande s'il est quand même possible en théorie que le corps répare de lui-même des organes, et il répond que la prochaine étape dans leur évolution serait plutôt d'éliminer les organes qui sont inutiles, comme leur petit orteil, qui contrairement à ce que tout le monde pense, ne sert pas pour l'équilibre. Elle continue à poser des questions, mais il répond qu'elle aurait besoin d'un diplôme en génétique pour trouver des réponses. Claire se rend alors compte que les autres élèves la regardent bizarrement, mais que West lui sourit.

A Hartsdale à New York, Mohinder entre dans le bureau de Bob. Il demande à son nouveau patron de lui donner un libre accès à toutes leurs données pour qu'il puisse faire correctement son travail. Bob élude la question en lui disant qu'il a sa première mission de prête. Mohinder est surprit car on lui avait dit qu'il travaillerait dans leur laboratoire sur des échantillons. Bob lui explique qu'il va devoir aller voir un homme qui est tombé gravement malade, et qui est entrain de mourir à cause du virus. Bob lui dit que son travail va consister à faire des recherches sur ce virus, car il n'est pas connu, et que cet homme n'est que le troisième cas constaté de cette maladie, la première ayant été sa sœur en 1974, et Molly Walker il y a 4 mois. Avant que Mohinder ne reparte, Bob lui rappel que son sang est le seul remède qui existe pour le moment contre le virus, et il lui conseille de ne pas se faire tuer.

A Coatepeque au Guatemala, à 30 km de Mexico. Maya et Alejandro sont arrivés chez une personne qu'ils connaissent, Nidia, et qui les accueille chaleureusement. La femme se souvient encore d'eux étant bébés, le jour de leur naissance. Elle propose à Maya d'aller se reposer. Nidia doit les aider à traverser la frontière pour se rendre aux Etat-Unis. Puis Alejandro va retrouver sa sœur, et Maya lui confie qu'elle se sent coupable de faire prendre un risque à Nidia, et qu'ils auraient du trouver un moyen de traverser la rivière seuls. Son frère tente de la rassurer, et il lui dit qu'il l'empêchera de recommencer si le phénomène se reproduit.

Peter est toujours ligoté à son siège. Il a le visage couvert de sang. Puis quelqu'un entre dans la pièce, et une jeune femme vient le détacher. Elle lui dit qu'elle aime bien son collier (avec un pendentif représentant le symbole, comme celui que portait l'Haïtien), et elle lui demande se qu'il signifie. Mais comme il a perdu la mémoire, Peter ne sait pas. Elle se présente et lui dit que son nom est Caitlin. Elle lui nettoie le visage, et lui explique que tout cela le dépasse. Son frère, Ricky, et sa bande doivent livrer la livraison qu'ils devaient voler à un certain McSorley. Peter lui demande ce qu'il va se passer s'il n'est pas livrer, et Caitlin lui dit qu'il doit se rappeler de quelque chose, n'importe quoi. Peter lui avoue que son premier souvenir est celui de son frère et sa bande le trouvant dans le container, et la jeune femme se rappelle quand il a projeté Tuko dans les airs grâce à un coup d'électricité. Peter est confus quand il lui dit qu'il pense que l'étincelle venait de sa main, et Caitlin est troublée elle aussi, mais pas par cette révélation. Elle a essuyait beaucoup de sang sur le visage de Peter, et pourtant il n'a aucune marque. Peter se tourne et se regarde dans le miroir, sans comprendre ce qui se passe.

Mohinder arrive dans le village de Port-au-prince, à Haïti. Il cherche la bonne maison et entre. Il fait très sombre à l'intérieur. Mohinder s'approche du lit où un homme est allongé. Cet homme n'est autre que l'Haïtien, qui semble très mal en point. Il lui explique qu'il est médecin, et qu'il est venu pour lui donner un remède. Mais l'Haïtien lui répond qu'il n'en veut pas, qu'il a abusé de son don et que maintenant il est puni. Mohinder finit par le convaincre, et il se met au travail.

Maya se réveille. Une femme est arrivée chez Nidia pendant qu'elle dormait. Elle leur demande si eux aussi vont essayer de passer la frontière, et Alejandro lui répond que sa sœur est malade et qu'ils vont chercher un médecin. La femme leur dit qu'elle peut peut-être les aider, car elle est guérisseuse. Elle prend les mains de Maya, et se concentre. Puis elle commence à trembler, et à dire que Maya porte le mal en elle, et que personne ne peut la guérir. Puis elle s'en va, refusant de faire le voyage avec eux, malgré les protestations de Nidia.

Dans le Japon féodal. Yaeko est entrain de se battre à l'épée contre plusieurs hommes, qui semblent bien s'amuser. Leur chef lui dit qu'ils ont besoin de son père en vie, mais pas d'elle. C'est à ce moment que Hiro, déguisé en Kensei, arrive derrière eux et ordonne aux hommes de laisser Yaeko tranquille. Les hommes lui font face, et Hiro leur dit de ne pas défier Takezo Kensei car il est le plus grand épéiste qui existe. Le chef de la bande lui demande comment il pourrait revendiquer cela alors qu'il n'a pas d'épée. En effet Hiro n'est pas armé. Il répond simplement qu'il n'a pas d'épée car il a les leurs. Hiro ferme les yeux et se concentre, et une seconde plus tard, les épées que tenaient ses adversaires se retrouvent plantées devant lui. Les hommes sont surprit, mais ils prennent leur arc et se préparent à tirer sur Hiro. En une seconde, les arcs disparaissent des mains des brigands, et apparaissent dans celles de Hiro. Les hommes s'enfuient. Hiro leur cri d'appeler ce moment la « bataille des 12 épées ».
Hiro remonte à cheval, et Yaeko s'approche de lui pleine d'admiration. Elle lui souhaite que la bonne fortune soit toujours avec lui, et Hiro réplique qu'elle le sera si elle chevauche avec lui. Ils s'éloignent au galop.

Peter, toujours attaché, essaye de libérer ses mains. Il entend dans la pièce voisine Ricky dire à sa sœur de garder un œil sur Peter, et de lui tirer dessus s'il bouge trop. Puis il s'en va avec ses acolytes. Peter continue de forcer sur les liens, mais sans résultat. Il se calme alors et semble se concentrer. Ses mains passent alors au travers de ses liens, et il est libre (il avait absorbé le pouvoir de DL). Il se lève s'en faire de bruit, attrape une chemise et se dirige vers la fenêtre. Il entend alors des personnes entrer dans le bar, et parler avec Caitlin.
La jeune femme garde son calme, mais elle prend discrètement une arme. Malheureusement, l'un des deux hommes est plus rapide qu'elle, et l'empêche de se défendre. Peter entre à son tour dans le bar, et projette un fuseau électrique sur l'homme qui tient Caitlin. Le deuxième homme braque son arme sur lui, mais il l'envoie voler d'un revers de la main, le tout sous le regard étonné de la jeune femme.

West aborde Claire dans la cour du lycée, et lui demande pourquoi elle était tant intéressée par les lézards pendant le cours. Il ajoute qu'il aurait pensé qu'elle préférerait les dauphins ou les licornes, et Claire rétorque qu'elle n'est pas si blonde que ça! West lui dit qu'il trouve ça cool qu'elle s'intéresse à ce genre de chose, qu'il est pareil, et Claire lui dit qu'elle n'est pas réellement intéressée par la génétique. Il lui dit qu'elle n'a pas besoin de cacher sa vraie personnalité, et il ajoute qu'il a trouvé un bouquin sur ce sujet, écrit par un Indien, et qu'il pourrait lui apporter. Claire lui dit qu'elle n'en voit pas l'intérêt, qu'elle a posé des questions en cours juste parce qu'elle s'ennuyait, et que maintenant elle doit rentrer chez elle. Mais quand elle se retourne, elle se rend compte que sa voiture a disparu.

Hiro/Kensei a emmené Yaeko en sécurité, sous des arbres en fleur. La jeune femme lui présente toutes ses excuses pour l'avoir traité de voleur et d'imposteur. Hiro joue le valeureux samouraï, et lui promet de sauver son père. Yaeko aperçoit une biche, et Hiro lui raconte que ce sont les messagers de Dieu, et qu'il faut faire un vœu. Elle répond que dieu lui a déjà envoyé ce qu'elle désirait, une personne pour les sauver tous. Elle lui demande d'enlever son masque, mais Hiro invente un prétexte pour ne pas révéler son visage. Yaeko ferme alors les yeux, dans l'attente que Hiro l'embrasse, mais à la place, il fige le temps. Il la regarde. Hiro est entrain de tomber amoureux. Puis il se résigne, et disparait, laissant Yaeko ouvrir les yeux pour découvrir les pétales des fleurs des arbres voler autour d'elle.

Mohinder a terminé d'analyser le sang de l'Haïtien, qui avait bien contracté le même virus que Molly. Il est maintenant guéri grâce au sang de Mohinder, et se sent beaucoup mieux. Mais Mohinder reste préoccupé par la propagation du virus. Il lui dit que les gens pour qui il travaille vont vouloir le rencontrer, et faire d'autres tests. A ce moment, l'Haïtien devient plus méfiant, et il comprend qu'il a été envoyé par la compagnie. Mohinder le regarde fixement, et quelques secondes après, il sort d'une sorte de transe, et ne se rappelle plus de rien. Bob est en face de lui, il lui explique que personne n'a pu le joindre pendant plusieurs heures. Il lui demande où se trouve l'Haïtien, mais Mohinder a un trou de mémoire, il ne se souvient plus de sa rencontre avec l'homme. Bob en déduit que l'Haïtien a été guéri, et qu'il a utilisé son pouvoir sur le professeur. Mohinder s'excuse de s'être fait avoir, mais Bob ne lui reproche rien. Au moins le virus a pu être contenu.

A la frontière entre le Mexique et le Guatemala. Nidia emmène Maya et Alejandro traverser la rivière. Elle leur montre le tunnel qu'ils doivent prendre, sans se faire voir par la police, au risque de se faire tuer. Maya parvient à y aller s'en se faire voir, mais la police arrive au moment où Alejandro allait rejoindre sa sœur. Il se cache, et Maya part avec Nidia. La femme la supplie de se dépêcher, mais elle ne veut pas abandonner son frère. Maya commence alors à se sentir mal, et on la voit pleurer des larmes noires. Nidia tombe à coté d'elle. Les mêmes larmes noires sortent de ses yeux, mais elle est morte. Maya appelle son frère à l'aide, et prie.
Quand Alejandro finit par arriver, il lui prend les mains, et il inhibe alors le pouvoir de sa sœur. Les larmes noires disparaissent du visage de la jeune femme, et les yeux d'Alejandro deviennent tous noirs. A coté d'eux, Nidia retrouve la vie, mais elle s'enfuit paniquée, en disant qu'ils sont maudits. Alejandro la supplie de rester, car ils ne savent pas où aller. Mais ils se retrouvent seuls. Le jeune homme ne se sent pas très bien.

Claire arrive au travail de son père. Elle lui demande de ne pas se mettre en colère si elle lui annonce une mauvaise nouvelle. Il prend un air grave et inquiet, et Claire lui dit que sa voiture a été volée. Mr Bennet, qui s'attendait au pire, et tout de suite soulagé. Claire ajoute qu'elle adorait cette voiture, et elle lui promet de ne plus jamais la laisser ouverte s'il lui en achète une autre. Son père l'accuse de ne pas être assez responsable, et s'il ne peut pas lui faire confiance pour la voiture, comment le pourrait-il pour tout le reste. Elle lui dit alors qu'elle voudrait connaitre ses limites, comme savoir si son bras pourrait repousser si elle le coupait, mais Mr Bennet lui dit qu'ils ne doivent pas en parler ici. Claire s'énerve, car il est le seul avec qui elle peut parler de ça. Elle veut savoir si son pouvoir peut aider d'autres personnes, si elle peut tomber malade, mais son père l'arrête, et lui explique que c'est pour cette raison qu'ils doivent rester cacher et se protéger. Car si la compagnie les retrouve, c'est exactement ce qu'ils vont faire, la disséquer, et la tester pour voir quelles sont ses limites, même si la douleur devient insupportable, ils ne reculeront devant rien. Il ajoute qu'elle se sent peut-être à l'étroit dans sa nouvelle vie, mais elle est plus libre ici que dans la cage où ils la mettront s'ils l'attrapent. Puis il retourne travailler.

Fuller et Parkman interrogent Angela Petrelli. Matt lui dit qu'un témoin la vue se disputer avec Mr Nakamura, quelques heures avant sa mort. Elle lui explique de Kaito avait mal parlé de son fils décédé, et qu'elle a juste trouvé ses propos déplacés. Fuller lui fait remarquer qu'elle possède des parts dans les industries Yamagato, et Matt ajoute que l'argent et le sexe sont les principaux mobiles pour les homicides. Elle leur dit que l'argent n'est pas un problème pour sa famille, et que cela faisait longtemps qu'elle n'avait pu de liaison avec Kaito. Matt lui montre alors la photo de Nakamura et lui demande si elle connait le symbole. Elle répond que c'est le logo de l'entreprise de son mari, mais ment en disant qu'elle ne sait pas de quoi il s'agit. Matt lit dans ses pensées, et il apprend qu'elle a fait des choses terribles avec d'autres personnes, et que maintenant quelqu'un veut se venger. Il lui demande alors si quelqu'un voudrait se venger, et Angela demande un avocat. Matt insiste, et quand il tente de lire à nouveau ses pensées, Angela lui cri de sortir de sa tête. Matt est confus.
Nathan est accueillit au poste de police par Matt, et il le reconnait car ils se sont rencontrés quand Nathan était venu faire sortir Peter de prison au Texas. Il dit à Parkman que sa mère ne veut pas le voir, qu'il est venu juste pour la faire sortir. Les lumières commencent alors à vaciller, et on entend Angela crier dans sa cellule. Ils se précipitent, mais la porte est fermée. Matt casse une fenêtre. Les lumières reviennent. Angela est terrifiée. Elle tient une photo dans ses mains. Un portrait d'elle, avec le symbole dessiné sur son visage.

Peter est entrain de soigner le poignet de Caitlin quand Ricky arrive dans le bar. Il est en colère, et il lui apprend que le mec qu'il a envoyé contre un mur n'est autre que le fils de McSorley, et qu'il n'a fait qu'empirer la situation déjà pas brillante. Peter rétorque que la prochaine fois il le laissera seul avec sa sœur, et Ricky s'énerve encore plus, braquant une arme vers Peter. Caitlin lui demande de se calmer, et Ricky dit à Peter qu'il va devoir les aider dans leur prochain cout, pour qu'il répare ses bêtises. Peter refuse, car il n'est pas un voleur, mais Ricky lui dit alors qu'il devra faire se qu'on lui dit de faire, où il ne récupèrera pas le peu d'informations qu'il possède sur lui. Il lui montre une boite, où se trouve toutes les informations que Peter avait sur lui quand ils l'ont trouvé, et le menace de tout jeter au feu. Ricky lui révèle que son nom est Peter, ce qui le fait réfléchir.

Hiro est de retour au village, et il retrouve Takezo, qui est en colère contre lui car il pense que Hiro l'a volé. Ce dernier lui explique ce qu'il a fait, et Kensei a du mal à croire qu'il ait fait tout ça sans en retirer aucun crédit. C'est à ce moment que Yaeko arrive, et il offre l'épée qu'elle lui avait reprit. Puis elle lui dit qu'il faut partir, et Hiro explique à Kensei qu'il a promit d'aller secourir son père. Yaeko lui donne rendez-vous aux écuries et elle s'en va. Kensei change d'avis, et décide de suivre les instructions de Hiro, qui lui demande juste une chose, d'arrêter de boire. Kensei lui dit qu'il ne promet rien, et ils s'en vont.
Mais une fois dehors, les brigands mis en fuite par Hiro sont venus réclamer vengeance, et il tire plusieurs flèches sur Takezo, qui s'effondre. Hiro le regarde, s'en savoir quand faire. Il retire une flèche de la poitrine de Takezo, qui meurt. Mais quelques secondes après, la blessure se referme d'elle-même, et Kensei reprend connaissance. Ils sont aussi surprit l'un que l'autre.

Molly et Matt sont entrain de dormir quand Mohinder rentre de son voyage. Son téléphone sonne. C'est Mr Bennet, qui est encore à son nouveau travail. Mohinder lui dit que tout marche comme prévu, qu'il n'a pas été démasqué par la compagnie, et que Bob ne semble pas lui en vouloir d'avoir laissé filer l'Haïtien. Mohinder ajoute que maintenant il va être beaucoup plus surveillé, et Mr Bennet lui dit de ne pas s'inquiéter, qu'il trouvera les autres peintures lui-même, car grâce à lui, il a tout ce dont il a besoin à présent. En face de Noah se trouve l'Haïtien.

Claire est assise dans son salon, entrain de se vernir les pieds en regardant une émission de concours canin. Mr Muggles est aussi assis devant la télé. Sandra demande à Claire d'éteindre la télé car cette émission va déprimer Mr Muggles, mais quand elle coupe la télé, le chien se met à grogner. La jeune fille rallume la télé, et prendre son livre de science. Elle regarde tour à tour la photo du triton, et son petit orteil. Puis elle attrape une paire de ciseau, et coupe son orteil. Elle attend quelques secondes, et voit celui-ci repousser. Elle reste sous le choc quelques instants, et Mr Muggles se met à aboyer. Claire voit alors West la regarder par la fenêtre. Il est aussi surprit qu'elle. Elle se dépêche de sortir, mais arriver dehors, il n'y a plus personne. Mr Muggles continue d'aboyer en direction du ciel, et Claire trouve un exemplaire du livre de Chandra Suresh sur le trottoir.

(Sandra cracks an egg and drops it in a glass dish.)

CLANK!

(Sandra looks down at the boiling pot of water she’s cooking the eggs in.)

SANDRA: Ahh, dang it all. My wedding ring fell in with the eggs.

CAPTION:
      BENNET HOUSE
      COSTA VERDE, CALIFORNIA

(Claire walks up and looks into the boiling pot. She sticks her hand in and picks up the ring. Her hand is pink and blistering ... then it heals completely.)

SANDRA: We do have a colander, dear. No need to be flashy.

(She gives Sandra the ring. Sandra blows on it.)

CLAIRE: It's no big deal.

SANDRA: It isn't until it gets you noticed.

CLAIRE: I can't even be myself at home? It's bad enough that I have to be all fake at school.

MR. BENNET: (o.s.) We simply asked you to lay low.

(She turns and looks at her dad.)

CLAIRE: High school doesn't work like that, Dad. You lay low, and you get noticed more than anyone. They have metal detectors for people who lay too low. I have to be someone.

(Mr. Bennet gets the juice out of the refrigerator.)

MR. BENNET: You know I trust you, Claire. I mean, we got you your own car.

CLAIRE: You know, it may be easy for you to pretend that you're the most boring photocopier in the world. But I can't not be what I am-–whatever that is.

(He takes the juice and the glass to the counter.)

MR. BENNET: Making copies is not my job. Keeping this family safe is my job. And if that means that I don't have time to make you breakfast in the morning or I have to dress up in this stupid shirt so that we stay invisible and nobody finds us ... then that's what I'll do. And I need you to do the same.

(She sighs and kisses him on his cheek.)

CLAIRE: I forgot how weird it must be for you to play normal after being ... whatever that was.

MR. BENNET: Don't you feel sorry for your dad. Compared to the life I had ... normal's a pretty nice vacation.

(Sandra holds out the plate with Claire’s egg on it as Mr. Bennet pours the juice.)

(Sandra picks up the US PRESS newspaper and shows Mr. Bennet the article on the bottom of the front page.)

SANDRA: Did you see this?

(The article headline reads: YAMAGATO C.E.O. DEAD AT AGE 70. There are two photos: one, a PR photo of Kaito Nakamura and the other of the crime scene.)

MR. BENNET: I knew this would happen. (sighs) Kaito.

SANDRA: How'd you know this was gonna happen?

(He doesn’t answer her immediately.)

SANDRA: Hey. That's not the way we do things anymore. No more secrets. That was the deal.

(Mr. Bennet looks at his wife and smiles.)



[INT. BENNET RESIDENCE – HOME OFFICE -- DAY]

MR. BENNET: This was done by a very gifted artist in New York.

(Mr. Bennet walks into the office with a rolled up sheet of paper. He puts it down on the coffee table and unrolls it.)

MR. BENNET: Isaac Mendez. Everything he's ever painted has come true.

(He shows her the painting of a man on the ground in a pool of blood in what looks like the crime scene photo printed in the paper.)

MR. BENNET: Except for a series of eight. I was only given the first.

SANDRA: There's seven more. What's in the other paintings?

MR. BENNET: I don't know.

(She holds out the newspaper to compare the two images.)

MR. BENNET: But I'm gonna find them.

      DEVEAUX ROOFTOP
      NEW YORK, NY

(The rooftop is a crime scene and is crawling with NYPD officers. Ando is talking with an officer. Detective Fuller arrives and ducks under the crime scene tape. Matt is behind him and stops at the table. Fuller turns around, exasperated.)

DETECTIVE FULLER: What, are you waiting on an invitation?

MATT: Oh, no. (He ducks under the tape.) I've just spent so much time on that side of the tape, I was just savoring the moment that’s all.

DETECTIVE FULLER: Yeah, well, welcome to the big leagues, Detective. Let's hope you survive. All right, got KAITO NAKAMURA: seventy, a Japanese national, CEO of a Yamagato Industries. Now, he fell out of the sky onto Central Park West with this in his pocket. That look familiar?

(He shows Matt the photo with the SYMBOL in a bag.)

MATT: Uh, no. No, I've never seen this before.

(They head over to the edge of the building.)

DETECTIVE FULLER: Well, Mr. Masahashi here is a witness. He says that he saw Mr. Nakamura being pushed by someone who went over with him.

MATT: But we've only got one body.

(They look down over the side of the building.)

DETECTIVE FULLER: Well, either the killer fell twenty stories, got up and walked away, or flew away. You know somebody that can do that?

(Matt doesn’t answer him. An officer hands Fuller a print sheet.)

DETECTIVE FULLER: Ah. We ... uh ... found a fingerprint on the photo. Got a match.

(He gives the print info sheet to Matt.)

MATT: Angela Petrelli. We need to bring her right in.

(Detective Fuller doesn’t say anything. He walks away leaving it to Matt. Matt turns and looks at Ando.)

MATT: Mr. Masahashi.

(Ando walks over.)

MATT: You ever seen this symbol before?

(Matt shows the photo to Ando.)

ANDO: Yes. It is a kanji. It means, "great ability, godsend."

MATT: Ability?

ANDO: It is the crest of Takezo Kensei, a famous hero in Japan. Mr. Nakamura used to read the Kensei stories to his son Hiro.

MATT: I need to talk to him.

ANDO: So do I.

(Hiro dunks Kensei’s head into a trough full of water to sober him up.)

HIRO: You must be sober! If we don't go after Yaeko right now, she'll be killed!

KENSEI: Who's Yaeko?

HIRO: The girl you're supposed to fall in love with!

KENSEI: The one who hates me?

HIRO: Yes, before I came back in time and ruined everything, she was supposed to be your princess, and you, a hero.

(Kensei looks at Hiro.)

KENSEI: You look like a fish when you talk.

HIRO: No, I promise, if you do this, they will tell the story for 400 years ... minimum!

KENSEI: Like a giant carp.

(Hiro grabs Kensei and shoves his head back under the water.)

HIRO: (subtitled) I already made a mess of the past. The space / time continuum can’t take any more.

(Hiro pulls Kensei back up and Kensei falls to the ground, passed out.)

(Hiro sighs with defeat.)

HIRO: (subtitled) History needs Takezo Kensei to be a hero today ...

(He sees Kensei’s armor and mask under the tree. It’s there. Under the tree.)

MR. ZERN: This video demonstrates the newt's amazing ability to re-grow a completely working limb. But newts are not the only creatures with this talent. Thanks to millions of years of combined mutation, lizards are capable of cellular regeneration.

CLAIRE: You mean like people who can heal themselves?

(He chuckles.)

MR. ZERN: No, not people, Claire. Lizards. And raise your hand, please.

(Claire raises her hand.)

CLAIRE: But it's possible, right? For people to be able to do that too? I mean, theoretically.

(West stares at Claire.)

MR. ZERN: Well, there's a lot of controversial, though promising, work with stem cells.

CLAIRE: So we might be able to culture whole organs and limbs for people who need them?

MR. ZERN: I guess the next step for us is phasing out the extra parts. We're not using the appendix anymore, or grinding bone with our wisdom teeth. We don't even really need a pinky toe for balance. It's all just ... junk in our DNA.

CLAIRE: I've read that some people might have evolved a different code already. Is that possible?

MR. ZERN: I'm afraid you are gonna need an advanced degree in genetics to get at those answers. And I hope you thank me in your dissertation.

BOB: Oh, so how'd you like the jet? A lot better than flying coach, huh?

MOHINDER: I didn't agree to work with you for the comforts.

(Mohinder removes his bag and puts it down on the chair near him.)

BOB: Still, it doesn't hurt.

MOHINDER: I can't help people with abilities unless I have access to all your records and your labs.

BOB: Of course, of course. And right now, I need to get you back on that plane because I have your first assignment here somewhere.

MOHINDER: Assignment? I thought you said your company kept its medical samples here.

BOB: Not samples. (He holds up an envelope.) A man. In Port-Au-Prince. He turned up sick: weakness, tremors, loss of abilities. He's dying.

(Bob gives Mohinder the envelope.)

MOHINDER: (sighs) The virus.

BOB: Mm-hmm.

MOHINDER: If there's another case, there could be some reservoir of infection.

(Excited, Mohinder opens the envelope.)

BOB: That's what I need you to find out. To date, there have only been two presentations of the disease--your sister in 1974 and Molly Walker four months ago. If there is actually a third case --

MOHINDER: Then it is spreading. I'll test him. If it's true, I'll bring him back as soon as possible.

(Mohinder turns to get his things.)

BOB: Oh, and, doctor ... as of now, your blood is the only cure for that virus. Try not to get yourself killed.

NIDIA: (subtitled) You are all grown up, but I still see you as children.

NIDIA: (subtitled) I still remember the day you were born. First Maya, then Alejandro right behind. I see it is still the same way. Maya ... Go ahead and rest.

(Maya heads into the room to rest as Nidia talks with Alejandro.)

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) You will help take us across the river into Mexico?

(She nods.)

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) We have no money.

NIDIA: (subtitled) I cannot take money. This is no place for the young to make their lives.

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) It’s been so long since anyone has been so kind to us, Nidia. I’ve forgotten what it means to trust someone.

(Maya is in the bedroom removing her shoes.)

NIDIA: (subtitled) Others will be coming soon. We have a long night ahead. Come, you must be tired.

ALEJANDRO: Gracias.

(Alejandro goes into the bedroom as Maya climbs on the bed.)

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) You see? We’re almost there.

(He sits on the edge of the bed. Maya has her reservations about being there.)

MAYA: (subtitled) It’s not right to risk her. We should find a way to cross alone.

CAITLIN: I like your necklace. What does it mean?

PETER: I wish I knew.

CAITLIN: Let's try an easier one. What's your name?

PETER: I don't know.

CAITLIN: It's not your day, is it? I'm Caitlin. You know that much now.

(She put the bloodied towel in the pan of water and squeezes.)

PETER: Caitlin.

CAITLIN: Mm-hmm?

(She starts dabbing at his face again.)

PETER: What are they gonna do to me?

CAITLIN: I don't know. Whatever me brother thinks is best.

PETER: Your brother? Did he send you in here?

CAITLIN: He'd pitch an epic fit. Thought I'd try a kinder tack. Thing is, this job, it's bigger than you and a couple of quid. They pulled it for this man named McSorely. Promised delivery today.

PETER: So what happens if the guy doesn't get what he wants?

CAITLIN: You have to remember something. Anything--a name, a face.

(She continues wiping the blood from his face.)

PETER: First thing I remember is your brother and his crew finding me. Then the big guy came at me and --

CAITLIN: And an electrical short blew Tuko on his arse -- I heard the story.

PETER: The spark. I think it came from me. My hand.

(Caitlin stops wiping his face and stares at him.)

PETER: I--I know that it seems--

CAITLIN: Is it possible? I've just rung out ... a lot of your blood. You don't have a mark on you.

MOHINDER: (subtitled) There’s a possibility you have a very rare virus. That’s why I’ve come. I may be able to help. Give you a cure.

THE HAITIAN: (in English) I do not want your cure.

(Mohinder turns to open his case.)

MOHINDER: Without it, you could die.

THE HAITIAN: God gave me a power. I abused his gift, so he took it away. Now I suffer his judgment.

MOHINDER: Then perhaps we should leave it to God to decide. The chances are you carry one of a hundred viruses I can do nothing about. If you somehow carry this one virus, there is only one cure. The distillation of my own blood, and I was guided to you. Surely that's a sign. Just the same as your suffering.

THE HAITIAN: A sign of what?

MOHINDER: That God isn't quite done with you yet. So, my friend, shall we see if he still offers redemption?

YAEKO: (subtitled) (angry) You don’t deserve to call yourselves Samurai. You feed on suffering.

HIRO: (subtitled) (o.s.) Step away from her!

(Hiro faces them with his hands on his hips.)

HIRO: (subtitled) Takezo Kensei demands it!

(Yaeko stops.)

WHITE BEARD: (subtitled) And why does he think we will listen?

(White Beard draws his sword.)

HIRO: (subtitled) Because Takezo Kensei is the greatest swordsman Japan has ever seen.

BRIGAND: (subtitled) (mutters) Why does he keep saying his own name?

WHITE BEARD: (subtitled) How can you boast such skill with a sword when you don’t have one?

HIRO: (subtitled) I don’t need a sword. I have all of yours!

RICKY: (teases) Always.

MCSORLEY’S THUG (TIRE IRON): Ahh! Ha! No, thanks, love. We came for you.

CLAIRE: You know, you make a lot of assumptions. Is my hair really that blonde?

WEST: I think it's cool, actually. I'm sort of into genetics too.

CLAIRE: I didn't say I was into genetics.

WEST: You don't have to hide everything interesting about you. Biology is supposed to be our destiny. But people forget ... Genes can change.

CLAIRE: I thought guys like you were supposed to sit at the back of the classroom and hate everything.

WEST: I just found this book. It's by some Indian guy. I can barely even pronounce his name. It's about everything you're talking about--people who've evolved. There's a whole chapter on regeneration.

CLAIRE: Sorry, I ... uh ... left all my awesome genetic textbook reading for the summer vacation.

WEST: You should see it. I-I could bring it over. Get you on your way to your PhD.

HIRO: (subtitled) My father once told me ... Deer are the messengers of God. If you tell a deer your wish, it can pass on the message.

YAEKO: (subtitled) Heaven has already sent me what I most desire. Someone to save us all. And bring us hope.

HIRO: (subtitled) You are too kind.

YAEKO: (subtitled) Take off ... your mask.

THE HAITIAN: Steady as faith. I prayed your cure would not work.

MOHINDER: If I prayed, I would have asked the same. The thought of this virus finding you, out here. If it spreads ...

THE HAITIAN: So you did not believe what you said. About God sending you to cure me.

MOHINDER: I have trouble believing in any God that would allow a pathogen like this to exist. It killed my sister.

(They’re both quiet. The sounds of children playing out in the street filter into the small room. Mohinder turns back to the scope.)

MOHINDER: Seems like it's becoming even more virulent. With a replication rate this aggressive, you would have been dead by morning. The people I work with will want me to bring you in for observation. I have a plane.

MOHINDER: I was in your office. You gave me an envelope, said ... a man may have the virus. That I was to cure him.

BOB: He wouldn't have been able to take your memory unless the vaccine worked. So ... apparently it did. Full recovery. Thank you, Dr. Suresh.

MOHINDER: My memory? (He’s quiet.) I’m sorry.

MAYA: (subtitled) No! Not again. Please God.

(Nidia looks around. Maya’s back is to her as she mumbles her fervent prayers.)

(Nidia grabs Maya and turns her around. She’s stunned by what she sees.)

(Maya’s eyes are bleeding. Black liquid tears stream down her face

MAYA: (subtitled) Run! Run!

(Nidia backs away. But it’s too late. She falls to her knees, doubles over and falls sideways to the ground. She gasps for breath.)

(Maya turns to the drainpipe.)

MAYA: (subtitled) Alejandro ... please come. I need you.

(She sits down near Nidia, but doesn’t touch her. She lifts her face to the sky and prays.)

MAYA: (mumbles in Spanish)

FADE OUT.

(COMMERCIAL SET)



FADE IN:

[EXT. (GUATEMALA) WOODS -- NIGHT]

(Maya continues to pray as she sits next to Nidia, who is unmoving on the ground.)

(Alejandro arrives and touches her lightly on the shoulder. Maya is startled.)

MAYA: (subtitled) It’s too late. Look what I’ve done.

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) It’s all right. I’m here. Take my hand.

(He holds her hands in his, looks at her face and sings softly. The black tears clear off her face, then appear in Alejandro’s eyes for a moment. His eyes clear.)

(The black streaks on Nidia’s face clear as well.)

(Relieved, Maya hugs Alejandro.)

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) I told you ... it would be okay.

MAYA: Gracias.

(Nidia wakes up. She looks at them.)

NIDIA: (subtitled) She was right. You are evil! Both of you. You’re cursed!

(She scrambles to her feet and runs.)

(Alejandro turns around.)

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) (panting) Wait. We don’t know where to go. Please ... she didn’t mean to –

(Nidia looks back from the drainpipe.)

NIDIA: (subtitled) Stay away from me, Devil. Stay away!

(She crawls through the pipe, leaving them behind. Maya looks at Alejandro.)

MAYA: (un-subtitled)

FADE TO WHITE:



[INT. (COSTA VERDE) COPY KINGDOM – DAY]

(Claire walks in. She looks at her dad and gathers her courage as she approaches him.)

(He sees her and smiles.)

MR. BENNET: Hey.

(He’s stocking the candy shelves next to the counters.)

MR. BENNET: Five-pound bag of Gummi Bears. Receptionists love them. A well-stocked candy dish makes them feel popular.

(Claire is quiet and looking quite scared. He turns and gets a good look at her face. He picks up on it and starts fearing the worst.)

CLAIRE: Dad, if I told you something, will you promise not to freak out? My car kinda got stolen.

MR. BENNET: (sighed) My God, Claire. My heart just about stopped.

CLAIRE: I know. What's a stolen car when you're running for your life? Not that ... Look, I loved the car, and if you ever got me another one, I promise I will never leave it unlocked, ever again.

MR. BENNET: You left it ... unlocked? Claire ...

(He looks around and they start walking toward the back.)

MR. BENNET: I have to be able to trust you. And not just with the car, with everything.

CLAIRE: I know. I made a mistake.

MR. BENNET: We can't afford mistakes.

CLAIRE: 'Cause we're in hiding, and it's dangerous.

MR. BENNET: That's right.

CLAIRE: Oh, great. I'm in hiding because of something I can do, and I don't even know what that is.

MR. BENNET: You know enough.

(They reach the back storage room.)

CLAIRE: But I don't even know how it works. Or what my limits are. I mean, if I cut off my arm, would it reattach itself or would I grow a new one?

MR. BENNET: We shouldn't be discussing this.

CLAIRE: You're the only one I can talk to about this. I mean, I could be missing my opportunity to help people. If my skin can grow back after I boil it in with the eggs, then maybe my blood can help someone who got burned, or -- or someone who's sick.
I don't even know if I can get sick.

MR. BENNET: That's enough, Claire!

CLAIRE: Look, you can yell at me all you want about the car, but this is what I am!

(Mr. Bennet looks Claire in the eyes.)

MR. BENNET: I have kept you out of danger your whole life so you wouldn't have to find your limits. Because if they find you, that's what they'll do. They'll cut you, they'll test you. And they will push you so far past your capacity for pain that you'll wish you could die. Believe me. You may feel confined here, but this is far freer a cage than the one they'd put you in.

(Claire is quiet.)

MR. BENNET: I've gotta get back to work.

(Mr. Bennet leaves.)

FLASH TO:



[INT. (NEW YORK) POLICE DEPARTMENT – INTERVIEW ROOM – DAY]

(Detective Fuller and Matt interview Angela Petrelli.)

MATT: You and Nakamura. Witness said you had a fight yesterday.

ANGELA: We were old friends. Sometimes simple conversations can be misconstrued.

MATT: Hmm. He said you slapped him.

ANGELA: He made an offhand comment about my son's death. I found it distasteful.

FULLER: You're a major shareholder in Yamagato Industries. That stock's been in the toilet for months now.

ANGELA: You think I killed Kaito over money?

MATT: Most common motives are money and sex.

ANGELA: Well, I don't need the money, and I wasn't sleeping with him. Not for a long time.

(Matt shows Angela Kaito’s photo with the SYMBOL on it.)

MATT: You recognize that symbol?

ANGELA: Yes, it's the logo of my husband's law firm.

MATT: Why draw it across Nakamura's face?

ANGELA: I don't know.

(Matt picks up Angela’s thoughts.)

ANGELA: (v.o., thinking) Because we did something terrible, and now someone wants revenge.

MATT: Would anyone want revenge on him, maybe ... on you?

FULLER: Who said anything about revenge?

ANGELA: I want my lawyer now.

MATT: Who wants revenge, Mrs. Petrelli?

FULLER: Stand down, Parkman. She cried uncle.

(Angela looks at Matt as he waits and listens.)

ANGELA: (v.o., thinking) GET OUT OF MY HEAD!

(Matt jerks back and looks at Angela, watching him serenely.)

CUT TO:



[INT. POLICE DEPARTMENT – HALLWAY – DAY]

(Nathan is signing some forms at the counter. Matt walks up to him.)

MATT: Mr. Petrelli.

(Nathan turns around and looks at Matt.)

NATHAN: I know you.

(They shake hands.)

MATT: Detective Matt Parkman. We met in Texas when you came in to lawyer your brother out of jail. Look, I'm sorry about Peter. Follow me. I'll show you to your mother.

(Matt starts to leave.)

NATHAN: She's not gonna want to see me.

(Matt stops.)

NATHAN: Look, I just came to get her out.

MATT: Then why'd she ask us to call you?

NATHAN: She doesn't have anyone else.

(Just then, the overhead lights flash and short out. The hallway is in darkness.)

(Angela screams.)

(Matt runs. Nathan follows him.)

NATHAN: Where is she?!

(Angela continues to scream.)



[INT. POLICE DEPARTMENT – INTERVIEW ROOM – CONTINUING]

(Something is attacking Angela. She screams and bats it with her hands.)



[INT. POLICE DEPARTMENT – HALLWAY – CONTINUING]

(Fuller, Nathan and Matt run toward the lit interview room.)

NATHAN: Mom!

(Matt tries the door and finds it locked.)



[INT. POLICE DEPARTMENT – INTERVIEW ROOM – CONTINUING]

(Angela continues screaming as something inside the room attacks her.)



[INT. POLICE DEPARTMENT – INTERVIEW ROOM – CONTINUING]

(Matt leaves the interview room door and heads for the observation room.)

MATT: That's not possible!

NATHAN: (shouts) MOM!!



[INT. POLICE DEPARTMENT – OBSERVATION ROOM – CONTINUING]

(Matt enters the observation room. It’s dark inside. The interview room is lit.)



[ANGELA]

(Something continues to attack Angela. She screams.)



[INT. POLICE DEPARTMENT – OBSERVATION ROOM – CONTINUING]

MATT: Stand back.

(Matt picks up the chair and tries to smash the glass between the two rooms.)

(Angela continues to scream.)

(Matt hits the chair against the glass.)

(In the mirror’s reflection, we see Angela on the floor, her hands up to protect her face as she screams. The mirrored glass smashes.)

(Suddenly, the attack stops.)

(Angela looks up and sees Nathan and Matt climbing into the room. Nathan goes to his mother.)

NATHAN: It's gonna be all right, Mom. It's gonna be okay.

(The lights in the room flicker back on. Matt kneels next to them.)

MATT: Who did this to you, Mrs. Petrelli?

ANGELA: I -- I don't --

(In her hand, she’s holding something. Matt takes the photo from her and gets his first good look at her photo with the SYMBOL on it.)

FADE OUT.

(COMMERCIAL SET)



FADE IN:

[INT. (IRELAND) WANDERING ROCKS PUB – BACK ROOM – NIGHT]

(Peter tends to Caitlin.)

CAITLIN: Aren't you gonna say anything?

PETER: About what?

(He gets a bag of ice and puts it on her hands.)

CAITLIN: About those things you did.

PETER: I didn't do anything.

CAITLIN: Make up a story. Tell me you lost your memory of tonight too, but don't pretend I'm stupid.

(The door opens and Ricky walks in.)

RICKY: (angry) You had to knock the piss out of him, didn't you? The fella you put through a wall was McSorely's son. A sadistic bastard, but his old man loves him. And you just made him even uglier.

PETER: Fine, next time, I'll leave him alone with your sister.

(Ricky grabs Peter and turns him around. He reaches behind him and pulls out his gun, pointing it at Peter, who doesn’t look like he’s impressed by it at all.)

RICKY: Don't you mouth off to me. You turned a fixable monetary problem into a blood feud.

CAITLIN: Ricky!

(After a moment, Ricky puts the gun away.)

RICKY: You're gonna make this right. We'll do another job. Something big enough we can drop a fat stack on his desk and get him off our backs.

PETER: I'm not a thief.

RICKY: Maybe not. But you certainly handled those two like a pro. And that makes you something. Now, doesn't it?

PETER: What's to say I don't do the same thing to you and walk out of here?

RICKY: I thought common courtesy would do it. No? Then maybe this.

(Ricky takes a box out of his bag.)

RICKY: You might want this ... Peter.

PETER: My name is Peter?

RICKY: Sounds about right, doesn't it? Just something I read. This here is everything you had on you when we found you ... credit cards, maybe a train ticket. Could even be a love letter.

(Peter reaches for the box, but Ricky pulls it out of his reach and holds it over the fireplace.)

RICKY: It's all yours ... you just have to help us with one little job. What do you say ... Peter?

CUT TO:



[INT. (1671) -- DAY]

(Hiro walks into the building.)

HIRO: Hello? Mr. Kensei?

(Hiro’s carrying Takezo Kensei’s armor and looking for Kensei.)

HIRO: Mr. Kensei?

(Kensei whacks Hiro on the back of his head.)

KENSEI: You stole my armor and left me withal. Who do you think you are?

HIRO: I only did it to save Yaeko. And to show that Takezo Kensei is not a drunk, but a hero. And I did.

KENSEI: You did?

HIRO: Yes. They're already telling of your bravery.

KENSEI: Ah. And what exactly did I do on this day?

HIRO: You disarmed eleven men and rescued a beautiful girl.

KENSEI: I'm to believe you did all that and took no credit?

(Yaeko walks in.)

YAEKO: (subtitled) Master Kensei!

(Hiro turns around. Yaeko rushes up to them.)

YAEKO: (subtitled) I found you!

(Hiro smiles at her. She rushes past Hiro and up to Kensei.)

YAEKO: (subtitled) You left without taking what is rightfully yours. (She holds out the sword.) May my father’s blade do justice to your skill.

(He puts his hands under hers. He looks at her. She looks at him. Hiro looks down. Yaeko removes her hands, giving him the sword. She turns and runs quickly toward the door.)

YAEKO: (subtitled) Come now, there is no time to lose.

KENSEI: (subtitled) Where are you rushing to?

(Yaeko stops, fully expecting him to know already.)

HIRO: (subtitled) As you said, we must rescue her father.

KENSEI: (subtitled) Of course. That.

(He nods. Yaeko points.)

YAEKO: (subtitled) We have far to travel. Meet me at the stables!

(She leaves.)

(Kensei puts the sword around his back, his eyes on the door where Yaeko just left.)

KENSEI: (in English) All right, Carp, I'm in.

HIRO: Really?

KENSEI: I don't know what brand of fool you truly are, but it appears listening to you will grant me more reward. And more of her.

HIRO: It will!

KENSEI: Mm-hmm, then you can make me the hero she sees in me.

HIRO: As long as you stop drinking.

KENSEI: No promises.

(Kensei heads for the door. Hiro shrugs.)

HIRO: (subtitled) I can work with that.

(Hiro turns and follows Kensei out.)



[EXT. BUILDING – FRONT – CONTINUING]

(Kensei walks out of the building carrying his armor.)

(White Beard and his swordsmen step forward. The front line has their bows out.)

WHITE BEARD: (subtitled) I meet the "Great Takezo Kensei" again.

(Hiro steps out of the building just as White Beard motions. The men in the front fire. Two arrows hit Kensei.)

KENSEI: Aah!

(White Beard motions again. A third arrow hits Kensei.)

KENSEI: Aah!

(Kensei falls to the ground, two arrows in his chest and one in his shoulder.)

(White Beard smiles with victory. He and his men turn and run.)

(Hiro is left in the doorway absolutely stunned.)

HIRO: (subtitled) How can this happen?

(Hiro kneels next to Kensei, who is gasping for breath. Hiro grabs one of the arrows in Kensei’s chest.)

KENSEI: Aaahhh!

(Hiro pulls out the arrow. He looks at the bloodied tip. Kensei coughs. Hiro drops the arrow and looks at Kensei.)

KENSEI: I'm sorry, Carp. Maybe I'll be a hero next time around.

(Hiro grabs Kensei’s shoulders and shakes him.)

HIRO: No! You cannot die!

(And Kensei stops breathing. Hiro starts to cry. And that’s when he notices it –

-- Kensei’s wound spontaneously heals, sealing up right before his very eyes!)

(Hiro stares at Kensei’s chest. The wound is GONE! Kensei opens his eyes. He lifts his head and looks at Hiro.)

(Hiro’s eyes are wide with excitement!)

HIRO: (subtitled) "Godsend"!

(Kensei isshocked.)

(Hiro laughs.)

CUT TO:



[INT. (NEW YORK) MOHINDER’S APARTMENT – NIGHT]

(The notebook on the table is filled with pencil sketches of EYES and of the SYMBOL – random sketches of the little girl sleeping on the bed nearby. The bedside table lamp is on.)

(The door opens and Mohinder walks in. He turns the living room light on.)

(Matt is sleeping in the chair next to the bed – near enough to help Molly should she need him. He has the notebook with the pencil sketches on his lap.)

(Mohinder walks into the room and notes Matt and Molly. He puts his bag down and pulls the blankets up to cover Molly. She stirs, but doesn’t wake.)

(Mohinder watches her. His cell phone buzzes.)

(He steps out of the room as he answers it.)

MOHINDER: (to phone) You're working late.

INTERCUT WITH:

[INT. (COSTA VERDE) COPY KINGDOM – NIGHT]

(Mr. Bennet is on the phone.)

MR. BENNET: (to phone) Night shift. Don't ask. Was it a productive trip?

MOHINDER: (to phone) You should have the answer to that yourself very shortly.

MR. BENNET: (to phone) And you didn't arouse any suspicions?

MOHINDER: (to phone) I don't think so. Bob seemed more angry at himself for trusting the bungling professor.

(Mr. Bennet smiles.)

MOHINDER: (from phone) They'll be watching me more closely now.

MR. BENNET: (from phone) That's to be expected. Don't worry. I'll find the other paintings myself.

MOHINDER: (to phone) Are you sure?

(Mr. Bennet turns and stops when he sees someone off screen.)

MR. BENNET: (to phone) You've given me everything I need.

(Mohinder nods and hangs up. He turns and walks away. In the background, we linger on Molly sleeping in the other room while Matt sleeps in the chair.)

(Back at Copy Kingdom, Mr. Bennet turns to help a customer.)

MR. BENNET: Welcome to Copy Kingdom.

(He smiles as he looks at the Haitian.)

MR. BENNET: How can I help you?

(The Haitian smiles back.)

(They shake hands.)

CUT TO:



[INT. (COSTA VERDE) BENNET RESIDENCE – LIVING ROOM – NIGHT]

(Mr. Muggles sits on the coffee table watching a dog show on TV.)

MALE COMMENTATOR: (from tv) When I checked her pedigree, she ended up having 17 champions ...

FEMALE COMMENTATOR: (from tv) Oh, that's just ...

(Claire sits on the couch painting her toenails.)

(Sandra walks in carrying a basket of laundry.)

SANDRA: Turn that off. That is salt in the wound for poor Mr. Muggles.

(Claire picks up the remote.)

CLAIRE: I'm sorry. That was very inconsiderate of me.

(She turns the television set off. Mr. Muggles growls, turns around and barks.)

CLAIRE: You're right. It doesn't help to avoid it.

(Claire turns the television set back on. Mr. Muggles goes back and watches the show.)

(Claire puts her nail polish down and picks up the book where she reads up on lizards.)

CLAIRE: Well ... guess it's just you and me.

(She looks at the pictures of the lizards. She looks at her toes. Claire wiggles her toes. She looks at the scissors on the table.)

(She puts the book aside and picks up the scissors. She uses the scissors to cut off her right pinky toe.)

SNIP!

(Her pinky toe flies off.)

CLAIRE: Ahh.

(She looks at her toe.)

CLAIRE: Come on, grow back.

(Nothing happens. She continues to watch her toe. Then, her pinky toe grows back completely.)

CLAIRE: No way.

(Mr. Muggles barks. He stands up on the table and barks at the window.)

(West is outside watching Claire through the window. She looks up and sees West.)

(West turns and runs. Claire gets up and runs out of the house.)



[EXT. BENNET RESIDENCE – CONTINUOUS]

(Claire runs out of the house. There’s no sign of West other than a hard-covered book in the driveway. Mr. Muggles barks up at the sky.)

(Claire looks down and sees the textbook by CHANDRA SURESH.)

(Mr. Muggles continues to bark up at the sky. He jumps up in the air.)

(TOP VIEW DOWN on CLAIRE on the front drive.)

CAPTION:
      TO BE CONTINUED ...

(Mr. Muggles continues to bark.)
