Mr Bennet est assis chez lui, devant son ordinateur. Il regarde la photo du tableau envoyé par Mohinder, celui qui prédit sa mort. Sandra rentre avec Mr Muggles de sa balade sur la plage, et son mari lui demande si elle a parlé avec Claire récemment, pour savoir comment elle s'adapte à sa nouvelle vie. Il voudrait savoir si sa fille a rencontré un garçon, car Claire est représenté sur le tableau, entrain d'embrasser quelqu'un.
Claire arrive à son tour, et Mr Bennet lui dit de but en blanc qu'ils doivent parler des garçons. La jeune fille pense qu'ils veulent lui refaire la morale sur le sexe, mais ses parents lui disent qu'ils veulent juste rencontrer son copain si elle en a un. Claire leur dit de se détendre, parce qu'il n'y a personne dans sa vie.

Dans l'appartement de Mohinder, Molly se réveille en hurlant. Ses cauchemars empirent, et Matt et Mohinder ne savent pas quoi faire pour l'aider. Matt essaye d'entrer dans la tête de la petite fille, mais il est repoussé à chaque fois. Molly demande à Mohinder quand tout ça va s'arrêter, mais il répond qu'il ne sait pas. Et il lui chante une berceuse pour la calmer.

A Washington, Nathan se tient debout devant un portail. Il appelle ses deux fils, Monty et Simon, qui sont dans la cours de leur école. Les garçons lui disent qu'ils n'aiment pas sa barbe. Nathan leur annonce que leur grand-mère est à l'hôpital, mais qu'elle ira bien. Il s'excuse de n'avoir pas été souvent avec eux ces derniers temps, mais il leur promet qu'il va bientôt rentrer à la maison. La maitresse des garçons s'approche alors, et lui dit qu'il n'est pas autorisé à être ici. Puis elle emmène les garçons.

Quelque part au Mexique. Le prisonnier, Derek, qu'ils ont aidé à s'évader conduit Maya et Alejandro au milieu du désert. La jeune femme discute avec lui, mais son frère ne parle qu'espagnol. Il les emmène jusqu'à la frontière, mais leur explique qu'ils seront surement tous recherchés là-bas. Puis il s'arrête brusquement, car un homme est allongé au milieu de la route. C'est Sylar.

Micah est entrain de dormir. Quelqu'un l'appel, et lui verse de l'eau sur le visage pour le réveiller. C'est son cousin, Damon. Les deux garçons vont prendre leur petit déjeuner, avant d'aller à l'école. La cousine de Micah, Monica, entre à son tour dans la cuisine, et leur parle de confiance en soi, et de responsabilité. Elle attend les résultats de sa formation de manager, qu'elle a bien réussie. Damon demande à sa grand-mère de lui donner 65$ pour regarder un match de catch sur une chaine câblée. Nana refuse bien évidement. Elle dit à son petit-fils qu'il devrait regarder des émissions culturelles au lieu de ses bêtises, comme par exemple une émission culinaire qui passe sur la chaine que regarde Nana en préparant le repas. Les animateurs sont entrain de montrer comment créer une rose dans une tomate. Monica se demande qui a bien le temps de faire se genre de chose, et elle s'en va. Damon ne semble pas s'entendre très bien avec Micah, qui lui dit pourtant qu'il sait comment avoir l'argent.

A l'hôpital, Parkman et Fuller sont présents à coté d'Angela Petrelli. Elle est entrain d'avouer avoir tuée Kaito Nakamura. Elle leur dit qu'ils ont déjà ses empreintes, des mobiles, et un témoin qui l'a vu sur le toit. Elle ajoute qu'elle a tenté de se suicider parce qu'elle était dépassée parce qu'elle avait fait. Tout concorde, mais Matt reste septique. Il lit alors dans les pensées d'Angela. Elle le supplie de laisser tomber, en s'adressant directement à lui comme si elle savait qu'il pouvait l'entendre. Les déclarations suffisent à Fuller, mais Angela doit encore expliquer à Matt que s'ils continuent leur enquête, ils vont découvrir de quoi les gens comme eux sont vraiment capables, et pour cette raison il doit laisser tomber.

Au lycée, l'une des cheerleader vient voir Claire pour lui proposer d'intégrer l'équipe, car elle a eu le cran de s'opposer à Debbie le premier jour de son arrivée. Claire lui dit qu'elle n'a pas le temps pour devenir cheerleader, mais voyant la jeune fille insister, elle lui promet d'y réfléchir. West vient la voir à son tour, et il lui dit qu'il est vraiment content d'avoir trouvé quelqu'un comme lui. Mais Claire lui dit qu'ils ne doivent plus se voir, à cause de ses parents. West lui propose de sortir à nouveau ensemble, juste pour le soir, et ensuite, si elle ne veut vraiment plus le voir, il la laissera tranquille. Elle accepte, et le regarde s'éloigner.

Nathan, qui s'est enfin rasé, se dispute avec Matt, car il sait que sa mère ment. Matt lui dit qu'il sait qu'Angela est innocente, et il lui avoue qu'il a pu lire ses pensées. Et que de cette façon il a aussi apprit que Nathan peut voler. Parkman lui dit qu'il ne peut rien faire pour le moment pour sa mère, car il ne peut pas expliquer à ses collègues qu'il peut lire les pensées des gens. Il lui avoue aussi qu'en ce moment il a des problèmes chez lui, parce qu'une petite fille fait d'horrible cauchemars et dessine le même symbole qui a été dessiné sur les photos d'Angela et Kaito avant leur assassinat. Nathan lui dit qu'il a déjà vu ce symbole, et Matt ajoute que tout est lié, tout les évènements, et tous ceux qui comme eux ont un pouvoir. Tout est lié. Nathan reconnait aussi les photos de sa mère et Kaito, et Matt lui dit qu'il a besoin de son aide pour continuer son enquête. Nathan accepte, mais à condition qu'il puisse parler seul avec sa mère pendant 5 minutes.
Il demande à Angela pourquoi elle a confessé un crime qu'elle n'a pas commit, et elle répond que c'est parce qu'elle ne mérite pas d'être sauvée. Elle lui conseille d'aller intégrer un programme pour les alcooliques, de retrouver sa famille, et surtout de ne pas se faire détester par ses fils. Elle ajoute qu'elle a commis tellement de crimes dans sa vie, peu importe lequel elle confesse. Nathan insiste pour l'aider, mais elle refuse, de peur qu'il ne se fasse tuer à son tour et qu'elle perde un autre enfant. Il la prend dans ses bras, puis Parkman et Fuller viennent la chercher. Ils lui passent les menottes, et l'emmènent.

Derek demande à Sylar ce qu'il fait seul dans le désert, et il leur raconte qu'il a été volé, et qu'il marche seul au milieu de nul par depuis trois jours. Maya s'occupe de lui à l'arrière de la voiture, car il est très faible, pendant que Derek conduit. Alejandro ne dit rien, mais il semble très méfiant. Maya demande à Sylar où il se rend. Il retourne chez lui, à New York. La jeune femme, toute excitée, lui avoue que c'est aussi leur destination, car ils veulent trouver un homme, le Dr Suresh. Elle lui montre le livre de Chandra Suresh, Activating Evolution, s'en écouter son frère qui voudrait garder leur objectif secret. Sylar devient soudainement très intéressé, et il lui pose pleins de questions. Pour la mettre en confiance, il lui dit qu'il a lu ce livre lui aussi, et qu'il connait Suresh. Maya est toute contente, contrairement à Alejandro, beaucoup plus méfiant. Finalement, Sylar lui dit qu'il s'appelle Gabriel Gray, et Maya le compare à l'ange Gabriel.

A la Nouvelle Orléans, dans le fast-food Burger Bonanza, Monica travaille en chantant. Sa collègue, Camille, arrive en se moquant d'elle, mais Monica lui dit qu'elle est aussi joyeuse car elle a passé le test pour la formation de manager. Camille calme un peu sa joie, en lui disant de ne pas trop attendre de cette formation, mais la jeune femme lui explique que grâce à ça, elle pourrait gagner assez d'argent pour retourner à l'école et avoir des diplômes, et finalement emmener sa famille loin d'ici. Elle ajoute que ce n'est pas juste, qu'un ouragan puisse foutre en l'air toute sa vie. Elle a perdu sa mère, la chance d'aller à l'université, et tous ses rêves. Camille s'excuse de s'être moquer d'elle, et elle remarque alors ce qu'était entrain de faire Monica pendant qu'elle parlait. Elle a dessinée une rose dans une tomate, comme à la télé, sans s'en rendre compte. Elle regarde la tomate surprise, quand son patron, Mr Lamont demande à lui parler. Il lui annonce qu'elle n'est pas retenu pour le programme de formation de manager, et elle se défend en disant qu'elle travaille dure, qu'elle n'a pas loupé un seul jour de travail, qu'elle est motivée. Il lui explique que ce programme requière une grande disponibilité, pour se déplacer à travers le pays si besoin est, et qu'elle n'a pas à cause de sa famille. Monica fait la tête, en comprenant que ses rêves tombent à l'eau, encore une fois.

La famille Bennet déjeune et Sandra propose d'aller prendre leur dessert quelque part dans la ville. Claire leur dit qu'elle ne peut pas aller avec eux, car elle a un travail pour l'école à faire, à la bibliothèque. Son père lui propose de l'emmener, puisque sa voiture a été volée, mais elle lui dit qu'elle préfère marcher.
Claire part de chez elle, et Mr Bennet la suit. Elle rejoint West au coin de la rue. Mr Bennet arrive à son tour, mais il ne voit plus personne. Dans son dos, on voit West portant Claire s'envoler derrière le toit d'une maison.

Nathan a conduit Matt chez lui, pour lui montrer la photo dont sont extraits les portraits de Kaito et d'Angela. Nathan lui dit qu'une douzaine de personnes sont présents sur la photo, dont ses parents, Kaito Nakamura, mais aussi Linderman, et Charles Deveaux. Ils réalisent que beaucoup d'entre eux sont morts à présents. Matt voit une photo de Nathan avec ses enfants, mais Nathan ne veut pas en parler. Matt se met alors à lui parler de lui, en prétextant qu'il connait pleins de choses sur sa vie à lui, alors c'est plus juste qu'il en sache plus à propos de lui aussi, et il lui raconte que son ex-femme la trompait, et qu'elle était enceinte, mais pas de lui. Il ajoute qu'il y a six mois, il était flic à Los Angeles, qu'il avait une famille, une vie, et que son pouvoir est apparu et a tout compliqué. Pendant qu'il parle, Nathan continue de chercher la photo, et il finit par la trouver.
La moitié des personnes présentent sur la photo sont déjà morte, mais Matt pense que le meurtrier est peut-être l'un d'entre eux. Bob est aussi présent sur la photo, à coté de Kaito. Matt reconnait alors l'un d'entre eux, son père.

Monica repense à l'ouragan qui s'est abattu sur la Nouvelle Orléans. Elle est encore très déçue de n'avoir pas été prise. Camille lui apporte une boisson, et l'écoute pester contre son patron. Elle avoue à son amie qu'elle sait qu'elle doit devenir quelqu'un, comme si quelque chose au fond d'elle voulait se manifester. Monica pense que Dieu la punie, car elle est trop égoïste. Elle prie tous les dimanches à l'église, pour avoir une opportunité pour partir de cette ville, alors que tout le monde prie pour la ville et que tout redevienne comme avant l'ouragan. Camille essaye de la réconforter.

Claire et West sont assis sur le "O" de Hollywood. Claire lui raconte qu'il y avait un endroit qu'elle aimait dans sa ville au Texas. C'était une vieille tour d'une usine abandonnée, où elle aimait grimper, et voir ce qu'elle pouvait faire. Elle ajoute qu'elle a beaucoup réfléchit sur sa vie, comment tout a disparu si rapidement, mais quand il demande des précisions, elle refuse, et lui explique simplement que des choses terribles se sont produites quand elle habitait là-bas, et qu'elle ne veut plus faire confiance à personne. West lui fait remarquer qu'ils sont tous les deux au sommet de Hollywood, donc qu'une partie d'elle veut partager des choses, et il lui dit de sauter dans le vide, car la confiance commence par sauter le pas (c'est une image). Elle refuse d'abord, en lui disant que la voir se déboiter les bras, ce n'est pas jolie du tout, mais il lui dit que la peur que quelqu'un découvre la vérité sur elle, il connait ça lui aussi. Il ajoute qu'il veut bien l'aider, mais qu'elle doit pour cela lui faire confiance. Claire se lève alors, et saute dans le vide. West la rattrape, et Claire lui dit qu'elle s'en serait sortie. Le garçon répond qu'il sait qu'elle peut guérir, mais qu'il ne veut pas la voir souffrir. Ils s'embrassent.

Micah est entrain de trifouiller la télé pour obtenir la chaine câblée que veut Damon. Il attend que son cousin regarde autre part, puis utilise son pouvoir pour faire marcher la chaine. Monica rentre avec le diner ; Nana est endormie dans son fauteuil, et elle s'aperçoit qu'ils ont le câble. Son frère lui explique que Micah est un géni et a réussi à la connecter au câble, mais Monica n'a pas l'air contente, et Micah s'excuse. Elle lui explique qu'elle a promis à sa mère que veiller sur lui, et qu'il doit obéir aux règles. La jeune femme leur sort des assiettes pour leur repas, et Micah la sert dans ses bras. Puis il va dire à son cousin que leur diner est prêt. Monica regarde un bout du catch avec eux.

Dans l'appartement de Mohinder, Matt continue de regarder la photo donnée par Nathan. Molly et Mohinder rentrent, et la petite fille lui saute dans les bras. Matt leur annonce qu'il doit partir pour trouver son père, qu'il n'a plus revu depuis qu'il avait 13ans. Il demande à Molly si elle peut l'aider à le retrouver. Il lui montre pour cela la photo, mais la fillette commence à paniquer, et elle jette la photo par terre. Les deux hommes lui demandent ce qui se passe, et elle leur dit que c'est l'homme de ses cauchemars.

Nathan est seul dans son appartement. Il regarde des photos de son frère, et en met quelques unes dans la vitrine de l'étagère. Il voit alors son visage, déformé et brulé, dans le reflet de la vitrine. De colère, il frappe la vitre et la casse.

West dépose Claire chez elle, et elle se rend compte qu'il est très tard, et qu'elle va se faire engueuler par son père. Il lui dit que s'ils doivent continuer à se voir, il va falloir qu'elle trouve un meilleur mensonge, mais Claire ment très mal. Il lui conseille alors de trouver un truc que son père lui interdit aussi de faire, pour lui faire une excuse valable, et elle pense à quelque chose. Elle commence à s'éloigner pour rentrer chez elle, mais il la rappelle pour lui dire bonne nuit. Ils s'embrassent.

Maya et les trois hommes se sont arrêtés faire quelques provisions. Derek achète un journal, et découvre les portraits robots de Maya et Alejandro. Il le montre à Gabriel, en lui disant qu'ils doivent les laisser derrière eux. Sylar lui propose de les distraire pendant qu'il va appeler la police. Il le regarde s'éloigner d'un regard de psychopathe, et on entend le cliquetis d'une horloge. Sylar repose le journal, prend une grosse pierre, et suit Derek. Puis il retourne à la voiture, et demande à Maya de lui dire la vérité. Il lui montre le journal, et la jeune femme lui avoue que ce sont bien eux sur les portraits. Mais elle ajoute que ce n'était pas de leur faute. Sylar lui annonce que Derek et entrain d'appeler la police, et Maya prend peur. Son pouvoir commence à se manifester. Ses yeux deviennent tous noirs, ainsi que ceux de Gabriel. Alejandro parvient à la calmer, et Sylar réalise qu'ils ont des pouvoirs tous les deux. Il comprend que c'est pour cela qu'ils cherchent le Dr Suresh, et il dit à Maya qu'il comprend très bien ce qu'ils endurent. Et ils prennent la fuite tous les trois. A la cabine téléphonique, Derek est allongé par terre dans une marre de sang, mort.

Claire rentre chez elle sans faire de bruit, mais elle est quand même arrêtée par son père. Il pense avoir comprit qu'elle était avec un garçon, mais Claire lui dit qu'il ne s'agit pas de ça. Elle lui raconte qu'elle a été prise dans l'équipe de cheerleader, et qu'elle était sortie faire la fête avec les filles de l'équipe. Mr Bennet se met en colère, mais elle lui dit qu'elle a fait tout ce qu'il lui avait demandé. Elle a laissé tomber ses amis, sa vie, et qu'être cheerleader la rend heureuse. Son père finit par capituler, et il la laisse rester dans l'équipe, à condition qu'elle ne sorte avec aucun garçon, pour le moment en tout cas. Claire accepte, et s'en va. Mr Bennet entend alors le carillon sonner dehors. C'est le signal de l'Haïtien. Ils se retrouvent dehors, et l'Haïtien lui dit qu'il a retrouvé la piste de l'une des peintures, à Odessa, en Ukraine.

Mohinder a enfin réussi à calmer Molly, et elle est couchée. Matt explique à Mohinder que Molly va quand même devoir trouver son père, et il refuse catégoriquement. Il lui montre la photo, en lui énumérant toutes les personnes qui sont déjà mortes. Mohinder lui dit qu'il connait Bob, que c'est l'homme qui l'emploi, et qu'il pourra les présenter. Mais Matt veut d'abord retrouver son père, et pour cela il doit impliquer Molly.
La petite fille les écoutait, et elle accepte d'aider Matt à trouver son père. Il la prend dans ses bras en lui disant merci.

Monica est à son travail. Son patron lui dit qu'il est l'heure de fermer, mais un homme arrive et pointe un revolver vers la jeune femme. Il braque la caisse, mais Monica reproduit la même prise qu'elle a vu pendant le match de catch à la télé, et met l'homme à terre. Son patron arrive en courant en entendant le vacarme, et l'homme prend la fuite. Monica est encore surprise par ce qu'elle vient de faire.

Matt et Mohinder promettent à Molly de la protéger quoiqu'il arrive. Elle commence à chercher. Elle voit une ville, Philadelphie, puis une rue, un immeuble. Elle refuse d'aller à l'intérieur, mais Matt insiste. Elle trouve l'homme au 3ème étage, à l'appartement numéro 9, et commence alors à paniquer. Matt lui dit de partir tout de suite, mais Molly crie que l'homme est là. Elle se débat, crie, et perd connaissance. Matt lit ses pensées. Molly l'appelle et lui crie de l'aider.

CLAIRE: (groans) Oh, please, not the sex talk again. It was painful enough the first time.

SANDRA: We just want to know if you're seeing anyone.

CLAIRE: Why, because dating is forbidden too? Along with cheerleading and a social life?

CLAIRE: Dad, believe it or not, there are people in this world who aren't out to get us.

MONICA: No, because today is the day they're posting the test results for the regional manager training program. The test I just happened to have aced.

(Monica stops as she watches the host on the cooking show cut a tomato.)

NANA: Right.

DAMON: Good, so now you can afford that $65 I asked you for.

MONICA: No, I can't. And don't be asking Grandma either. Don't give him a dime, Nana. He wants it for some wrestling match on pay-per-view tonight. Half the people in this county are living in FEMA trailers, and you want to spend good money to watch grown men jump around in their underwear.

NANA: You can walk down Bourbon Street for that.

(She looks at Micah. Micah chuckles.)

DAMON: But it's the night of the tag team title. I can't miss it.

NANA: You should be watching something educational like this. (She points to the cooking host cutting the tomato.) This is good TV.

(Monica watches the set for a moment.)

COOKING HOST: And voila, you have a beautiful tomato rose.

MONICA: (scoffs) Making flowers out of tomatoes? Who's got time to do that?

NANA: Unfortunately, I do.

(The toaster pops up and Monica takes her bread out.)

COOKING HOST: And you have a recipe to impress.

MONICA: I'll bring dinner home from the restaurant.

(She kisses Nana on the cheek.)

DAMON: Again.

MONICA: Wish me luck.

(Monica grabs her cap and keys and heads out.)

NANA: Break a leg.

DAMON: Whatever.

(Damon starts to eat. Micah watches him. Damon looks up and finds him staring.)

DAMON: What you lookin' at?

MICAH: Nothing. It's just I think I know a way to get you pay-per-view.

(Matt and Detective Fuller talk with Angela Petrelli.)

ANGELA: I did it. I killed Kaito Nakamura.

MATT: Why?

ANGELA: For all the reasons you said.

DETECTIVE FULLER: Sex? Money?

ANGELA: Yes. You know I was on the roof. You have my fingerprints. I did it. I pushed him off.

MATT: When we..uh..we brought you in, you tried to kill yourself. Turns out your wounds were self-inflicted.

ANGELA: I was distraught. Overwhelmed by what I did.
And so I -- I attacked myself.

(Matt isn’t buying any of it. Detective Fuller writes furiously in his notebook.)

ANGELA: (v.o., thinking) Write down the statement and let it go, Parkman. Please let it go.

MATT: Ahem. Uh ... Mrs. Petrelli, why are you doing this?

ANGELA: My head is clear now. I understand. The only way out of this is for me to confess.

DETECTIVE FULLER: Fine. I'll start the paperwork.

ANGELA: (v.o., thinking) If they keep digging, they will find out about all of us and what we can do. Let it go. Let it go.

CLAIRE: What's that?

MAY: Parental release form to try out for the cheerleading squad.

CLAIRE: For me?

MAY: (smiles) Yep.

CLAIRE: I'm flattered. I don't think I can squeeze cheerleading into my schedule.

MAY: But you're kind of a hero to the girls in the squad.

CLAIRE: A hero? Why?

MAY: The way you stood up to Debbie on your first day. You know, half of being a cheerleader is having guts. And you have got those in spades.

CLAIRE: I'll tell you what. I'll think about it, and then I'll let you know if I change my mind.

MAY: Good! Then take the release form just in case.

(May gives Claire the release form and leaves. Claire closes her locker. West walks up to her.)

WEST: Hi.

CLAIRE: Hi.

(Claire and West walk.)

WEST: I can't stop thinking about yesterday. It was so amazing. I finally have someone I can be myself with.

(The school bell rings.)

CLAIRE: Uh, about that. I--I'm not sure we should hang out anymore. It's just my parents are really overprotective.

WEST: Is this because we flew together? I weirded you out, didn't I?

CLAIRE: No! I like you, I really do.

WEST: Then it's those marks on my neck, right? You think I was abducted by aliens. I told you, it was a guy with horn-rimmed glasses.

CLAIRE: It's my dad. He's just really overprotective about the dating thing.

WEST: Then let me talk to him.

CLAIRE: I don't think that's a good idea.

WEST: But ... I can fly. And you can regenerate. I mean, doesn't that tell you anything?

CLAIRE: Please don't make this harder on me than it already is.

WEST: Okay. I'll tell you what. Tomorrow I'll totally back off. Today, I'm asking you out.

CLAIRE: West, I --

WEST: Tonight, anywhere you want to go. If you want to call it off after that, fine.

CLAIRE: Fine, but just this once.

WEST: (smiles) You won't regret it.

(West turns and leaves.)

[INT. (NEW YORK) HOSPITAL – HALLWAY -- DAY]

(Nathan talks with Matt.)

NATHAN: (angry) What do you think you're doing questioning a suspect in a hospital? Any confession is coerced. She's sick.

MATT: Coerced or not, they believe her. (glances behind him) But I know she's innocent.

NATHAN: How?

(Matt moves away from the door. He stops and sighs.)

MATT: (whispers) The same way I know that you can fly. I can read your mind. Just like I read your mother's. But I can't tell my partner what I know or how I know it.

NATHAN: You reading my mind right now?

MATT: No -- yes, sorry. Look, your mother thinks she's protecting somebody by shutting down this investigation. But I'm not gonna let it happen. I'm not backing down. I've got a little girl at home that wakes up in the middle of the night screaming about nightmares, and drawing a symbol that – (He takes out the bagged photo.) -- this. The same symbol that's on these photos.

(Nathan looks at the two photos – one of Angela and the other of Kaito Nakamura – both with the SYMBOL drawn in red over their faces.)

NATHAN: I know that symbol.

MATT: I think it's all connected. Everything. What you and I can do. We're all connected.

NATHAN: I know this photograph.

MATT: Good, because I need your help. I can't continue this investigation without you.

NATHAN: All right, I'll help. I need five minutes alone with my mother. Alone.

(Nathan walks into the room. Angela is putting her jacket on.)

NATHAN: Why are you confessing to a crime you didn't commit?

(She turns and sees Nathan.)

ANGELA: Because you were right, Nathan. I don't deserve to be saved.

NATHAN: Ma, I was angry when I said that. I was drunk. I didn't mean it.

ANGELA: Of course you did.

(Nathan sits down.)

NATHAN: You asked me for help once. Now just let me help you.

ANGELA: Just because you shaved doesn't mean you're clean and sober. You still have to get yourself into a program. (He walks up to her.) Get your family back. Don't let your children hate you. Not if you can help it.

NATHAN: You didn't kill Kaito Nakamura.

ANGELA: I know that. I have done so many bad things in my life it really doesn't matter what crime I confess to.

NATHAN: Let me help you, Ma.

ANGELA: No, what you want is redemption, and you're not gonna get it by helping me. You'll just get killed. And I can't bear to lose another son.

(Matt and Detective Fuller, who were watching from the doorway, step into the room.)

MATT: Ahem. He has to do this. I'm sorry.

ANGELA: It's all right. I'm -- I'm ready.

(We hear handcuffs clinking off screen. Nathan sighs and nods to Matt. He nods back.)

DEREK: You're traveling pretty light.

SYLAR: I got robbed. Been walking for three days. Thank God you came along.

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) Ask him where he’s heading?

MAYA: Where are you going?

SYLAR: Going home to America. New York.

MAYA: New York. This is where we're going.

SYLAR: Do you have family there?

MAYA: No.

(She shows him Chandra Suresh’s book.)

MAYA: Uh ... we need to find this man.

ALEJANDRO: Maya, no.

(She glances at Alejandro, ignoring his warning.)

MAYA: Dr. Suresh.

(Sylar looks at the picture on the back of the book, scratched and dirty.)

SYLAR: This is a coincidence. I know this book. I've read it.

MAYA: Really?

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) What are you doing showing him the book?

MAYA: (subtitled) Don’t worry, he’s read it, too.

SYLAR: Why are you searching for Dr. Suresh?

MAYA: For a ... how you say this? Uh ... answers.

SYLAR: To what?

(Maya hesitates.)

SYLAR: I know Dr. Suresh. (He flips the book over and looks at the dirty photo.) We're old friends.

MAYA: You and Dr. Suresh?

SYLAR: You've helped me. Now I can return the favor. I can -- I can take you to him. I can help you find him.

(Maya smiles.)

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) What did he say?

MAYA (subtitled) He knows the man who wrote the book. (Alejandro looks suspiciously at Sylar.) He’ll take us to him. Of all the people to find – it’s amazing.

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) Yes, amazing.

MAYA: (subtitled) It’s a miracle. A sign from God. We’re on the right path.

      BURGER BONANZA, NEW ORLEANS

MONICA: (sings) I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself / I used to cry -- / Mm mm / But now I hold my head up high--

CAMILLE: (interrupts loudly) We've got rules against drinking on the job, you know.

(Camille stands at the counter next to Monica.)

MONICA: It's all about attitude, Camille.

CAMILLE: What's about attitude?

(Monica absently cuts the tomato with a paring knife. She’s not paying attention to what she’s doing. She’s just feeling too good.)

MONICA: Life. And today is the first day of the rest of mine.

CAMILLE: Uh-huh, you sound like a fortune cookie.

MONICA: No, I sound like a woman with a future.

CAMILLE: Is there something you're not telling me?

MONICA: I took the test.

CAMILLE: (dramatically) Oh, are you pregnant?

MONICA: No! Girl, now how am I gonna be pregnant wearing this outfit two shifts a day? The management training program. I took the test.

CAMILLE: Oh, that.

MONICA: What do you mean "oh, that"?

CAMILLE: Nothing. I just think that you shouldn't get your hopes up, that's all. Only a fool would put money on a 1-in-50 chance.

MONICA: Look, if I make manager, I can earn enough money to go back to school, get my degree. I can move my family out of here. It's not right. One storm comes rolling through here and blows away my whole life: my mother, my college education, my dreams.

CAMILLE: I'm sorry. It's just you've been talking like this since we were in kindergarten. One scheme after another, and nothing ever happens.

(Monica turns her head away and sighs.)

(Camille looks down and is amazed.)

CAMILLE: What in the world? Where did you learn to do that?

(Monica looks down at the perfect tomato rose on the cutting board.)

MONICA: I don't --

MR. LAMONT: Monica, let me talk to you for a second.

(Mr. Lamont is in the back kitchen. Monica turns and smiles smugly at Camille.)

(Mr. Lamont and Monica sit at an empty table. Mr. Lamont puts his file down on the table.)

MR. LAMONT: Okay. I'm sorry, Monica. You're just not qualified for the management program.

MONICA: So ... I didn't do well on the test?

MR. LAMONT: You did fine. Not top tier, but --

MONICA: But what? I'm motivated. I'm hard working. Mr. Lamont, I've never missed a day.

MR. LAMONT: That's not the issue. A management position means you need to be available for any location in the state. And it's just not right for someone in your situation.

MONICA: My situation?

MR. LAMONT: Your home life—your brother, your grandmother.

MONICA: That's the point. I'm the breadwinner. I need the money. And I mean, I can't make hamburgers for the rest of my life.

MR. LAMONT: You're good at your job, Monica. What's wrong with that? And you should be happy you have one. There's a lot of people in this city who don't.

SANDRA: I thought for dessert we could go to that adorable yogurt place near the bus depot.

(Lyle nods in agreement. Mr. Muggles growls his agreement. Mr. Bennet looks like it might be an acceptable idea.)

CLAIRE: I can't. I have to go to the library for a research paper.

LYLE: The library? Haven't you ever heard of the Internet?

(Mr. Bennet watches Claire. He knows she’s lying.)

CLAIRE: Actually, the research paper is on libraries and how during the digital age they're becoming increasingly obsolete for our generation.

MR. BENNET: Do you need a lift?

CLAIRE: What?

LYLE: Your car? It got stolen, remember?

MR. BENNET: So do you?

CLAIRE: That's okay. I think I'm just gonna walk.

WEST: Hi.

CLAIRE: Hi.

NATHAN: Photo's gotta be in here somewhere. It's a group shot. Maybe ten, twelve people.

MATT: What kind of group is it?

NATHAN: It was a party or a meeting. My parents are in it. Kaito Nakamura.

MATT: You knew Nakamura?

NATHAN: No, my folks did. He used to come over to the house sometimes. My father didn't seem to care for him too much. I remember the last time I saw him, my mom hugged him, and it lasted just a little bit too long.

MATT: What about the others in the group?

NATHAN: Linderman was in it. Charles Deveaux too. (considers it) A lot of them are dead now.

(Nathan stands up and heads over to the desk.)

MATT: These your boys?

(Nathan turns. Matt shows him a photo of Nathan with Monty and Simon.)

NATHAN: Yeah.

(Nathan goes through more photos.)

MATT: What, you don't see 'em that often?

NATHAN: Look, I don't -- I'm sorry, I don't really know you that well.

MATT: My wife--my ex-wife ... uh ... cheated on me. Which I could've forgiven her for, except for the fact that she was pregnant with his baby.

NATHAN: Why are you telling me all this?

MATT: I just -- I know a bunch of stuff about you. I figure it's only fair.

NATHAN: If you want to unload, go ahead.

MATT: Six months ago, I was a cop in LA. Married, expecting a child, and then all of a sudden this stuff started happening. It just turned everything upside down. I'm just looking for answers.

(Nathan finds the photo.)

NATHAN: Maybe this'll help.

(Matt gets up. He takes out the two bagged photos he has with him and compares the photos.

MATT: That's the same photo.

NATHAN: Half the people in this picture are dead. It's like the killer's picking 'em off one by one.

MATT: Maybe one of these is the killer.

NATHAN: (points) Look, here's my father, here's my mother. Charles Deveaux. Linderman. Kaito Nakamura. This guy's name is Bob. Bob ... I don't know his last name. I don't know the rest of the people in the picture either.

MONICA: Ugh.

MONICA: Making hamburgers? Is he kidding me? I swear, I'd like to smack him upside his head.

CAMILLE: I'm glad you didn't. You can't afford to get fired.

MONICA: (sighs) I can't explain it, but I know I'm supposed to be somebody. I feel like there's something inside me that wants to come out. Does that make any sense?

CAMILLE: You lost more than most in the storm, and that kind of loss, it takes a while. You shouldn't be in such a hurry.

MONICA: I don't know. Maybe God's punishing me.

CAMILLE: Now why would he do that?

MONICA: For being selfish. I pray for it every Sunday in church. For God to find me a way out of here. Everybody else is praying for the community—to put things back together, to give them strength. Not me. I'm just praying for a way out. That's terrible, isn't it?

CAMILLE: Monica, given the situation, I'd say it's pretty normal.

MONICA: Normal. Yeah, that's me all right.

CLAIRE: Well, what can I say? I'm a cheap date.

WEST: You got a thing for heights, huh?

CLAIRE: There was this place near where I used to live in Texas. It was this old gravel tower. I used to climb up to the top of it. See what I could do.

WEST: You'd jump off?

CLAIRE: Yeah. Guess I've just been thinking a lot about my life. How it all went away so fast.

WEST: Why did it go away?

CLAIRE: I can't tell you that. The truth is so many terrible things happened to me while I lived there ... I'm not sure I could ever open up to anyone again.

WEST: Well, we're here together. So part of you must want to share something.

CLAIRE: I want to trust you.

WEST: Then jump.

CLAIRE: What?

WEST: Trust begins with a leap.

CLAIRE: (groans) Oh!

WEST: Cheesy, but true.

CLAIRE: Oh, no, it'll be gross. My arms pop out of their sockets and sometimes my feet come out facing each other. It's--it's not cute.

WEST: Claire, these fears you have of someone finding out about you, of feeling different forever, I have them too. You can share them with me, but I can't help you if you don't trust me.

CLAIRE: Okay.

(Claire stands up on the sign. She looks at West, then she falls – her arms outstretched in front of her.)

(After a moment, West catches her.)

DAMON: You know if this doesn't work, you're dead. You know that, right?

DAMON: Wow, you did it!

DAMON: (nods) Aight, you got your stay of execution. (NOTE: Should the sentence begin with "All right," ??)

(They high-five each other. Damon sits down to watch the match.)

(She puts the drinks on the table.)

MONICA: Is that pay-per-view?

DAMON: Uh-huh.

MONICA: How did you get that?

DAMON: Turns out Micah's some type of genius and rigged the cable.

MONICA: Is that true?

MICAH: (nods) Yeah. I'm sorry.

(Monica sits down and sighs. Micah can tell that her day didn’t go as planned. He walks over to her.)

MICAH: I was just trying to help.

MONICA: Look, I know it's tough being stuck with your cousins like this after everything you've been through. But I promised your mother that I'd look after you. So you gotta obey the rules around here, okay?

MICAH: (nods) I know.

MONICA: I..uh..I got dinner for you guys.

(Monica goes to the cupboard and gets some plates out.)

MONICA: You can eat in front of the TV.

MONICA: Hey, --

(Monica pulls away and looks at him.)

MONICA: -- you okay?

MICAH: Yeah. I just wish I could fix your dreams for you.

MONICA: You're a sweet kid. Go tell Damon dinner's ready.

MICAH: Dinner's ready.

DAMON: Yeah, in a minute.

DAMON: Here goes a 619.

DAMON: Oh!

MOHINDER: Is everything okay?

MATT: Yeah, yeah, I ... um ... I have to find my father.

MOLLY: You don't know where your dad is?

MATT: He left me when I was 13. He gave me 120 bucks and a pat on the head.

MOHINDER: And you haven't seen him since?

MATT: I've tried, but that's the thing about criminals. They--they don't like to be found.

MOLLY: He's a bad guy?

MATT: My dad stole a lot of money from a lot of people. And the case that I'm working on right now, I have a feeling that he's in the middle of something really dangerous, and I need to talk him. So I need you to help me find him.

(Mohinder doesn’t like the sound of it.)

MATT: Okay?

MOLLY: Okay.

MATT: All right, good.

(Matt puts the photo down on the nearby table. Molly and Mohinder lean over to look.)

MATT: (points) There he is. That's my dad.

(Molly backs away from the picture.)

MOHINDER: Molly, what is it?

MATT: Molly, what's wrong?

MOLLY: Put it away! Put it away!

(She grabs the photo from him and throws it on the floor.)

MOHINDER: Molly.

MATT: Molly, what's wrong?

MOLLY: (terrified) Please don't make me look for him. Please don't make me look.

WEST: What lie did you use to get out of the house? 'Cause I'm guessing you didn't say you were flying around in the arms of some kid from school.

CLAIRE: I said I was going to the library.

WEST: Ouch. I'm sure he didn't suspect a thing.

CLAIRE: I'm sorry, I'm a lousy liar.

WEST: Look ... if we're gonna keep seeing each other, you've gotta come up with something good. Something consistent.

CLAIRE: Like what? I'm volunteering at a soup kitchen?

WEST: Claire, the credible lies are the ones that make you look bad. What else is it that your dad doesn't want you to do?

CLAIRE: I think I have just the thing.

WEST: Aren't you gonna say good night?

(Sylar turns and looks at Alejandro.)

MAYA: Yes, this is us, but it is not our fault. We didn't mean to hurt anyone.

SYLAR: Well, you can tell the police that, because Derek is calling them right now.

MAYA: (frantic) No, no, no, please, no! He cannot!

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) What, what, what?

MAYA: (subtitled) Derek is calling the police.

(Maya stops, then starts to take deep panicked breaths.)

(Sylar gasps, then falls forward.)

(Whatever’s affecting Sylar isn’t affecting Alejandro at all. He looks at her.)

ALEJANDRO: Maya.

(Maya looks at Alejandro.)

SYLAR: What are you doing to me?

(Maya takes Alejandro’s hands. Sylar watches them.)

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) Calm down. Calm down. Calm down.

(Maya calms down.)

ALEJANDRO: (subtitled) Calm down.

(Her eyes clear. Alejandro’s eyes turn black and then he’s exhausted. The effects on Sylar clear.)

(Maya and Alejandro turn and look at Sylar.)

SYLAR: You both ... have power.

MAYA: This is not our fault. We don't know what's happening to us.

SYLAR: That's why you need to find Dr. Suresh.

MAYA: Yes.

SYLAR: Believe me, I understand what you're going through. To be held responsible for things that you didn't mean to do. Being hunted. I've helped Suresh with so many people like you. He'll know what to do.

MAYA: But the police.

(Maya turns and looks out the window.)

(Sylar holds up the car keys.)

SYLAR: They have to catch us first.

(He starts the car.)

CUT TO:



[INT. BUILDING -- DAY]

(As the Nissan Rogue pulls away from the small store, the camera moves down to show Derek dead on the floor in a small pool of blood and a phone dangling nearby. His head has been smashed, the brick on the floor.)

(A large cockroach crawls on the brick.)

FADE OUT.

(COMMERCIAL SET)



FADE IN:

[INT. (COSTA VERDE) BENNET RESIDENCE -- NIGHT]

(Claire tries to sneak back into the house. She closes the door and starts for the stairs.)

(Mr. Bennet is up eating his yogurt.)

MR. BENNET: How was the library?

CLAIRE: (sighs) Dad, I can explain.

MR. BENNET: You don't need to. You were with a boy.

CLAIRE: No, no, there's no boy.

MR. BENNET: Okay. So ... I'm waiting.

CLAIRE: I tried out for cheerleading.

MR. BENNET: Cheerleading?

CLAIRE: I made the squad. I forged your signature on the release form. The girls took me out to celebrate.

(Claire pulls out the folded release form from her pocket and shows it to him.)

MR. BENNET: You -- First you get your car stolen, now -- I-I told you no cheerleading. I was very specific about that.

CLAIRE: Dad, cheerleading makes me happy, okay? Look, I know, it's scary and I know there are risks. Just please let me have this one thing. I've done everything else you've asked me to. I've given up my friends and my life. I just need one thing that's normal.

MR. BENNET: I had no idea that cheerleading meant that much to you.

CLAIRE: Took me by surprise too. You're gonna let me do it?

MR. BENNET: I'll make you a deal. You cheerlead, but you promise me that you will not date for now.

(She nods.)

CLAIRE: Okay.

MR. BENNET: Okay.

(She stands up and kisses him. She heads to her room.)

(The wind chimes outside tinkle.)

(Mr. Bennet gets up and heads outside.)

(The Haitian steps up to him.)

THE HAITIAN: I have a lead on the paintings. We have to go to Odessa.

MR. BENNET: Texas.

THE HAITIAN: The Ukraine. It's a long trip. What will you tell your family?

MR. BENNET: Oh, I'm sure I'll think of something.

WHITE FLASH TO:



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

(Mohinder sits with Molly. He gets up and heads into the living room to talk with Matt.)

MOHINDER: She's finally settling down.

MATT: I'm sorry.

MOHINDER: You didn't know.

MATT: No, I'm sorry, because ... Molly has to find my father.

MOHINDER: That is out of the question.

(Mohinder walks away. Matt follows him.)

MATT: A lot of people in this photo are dead. This guy, dead. This guy, dead. Kaito Nakamura, murdered. Angela Petrelli, attacked. This is my dad. He may already be dead. He may be the next victim. He may be the killer. I have to find that out.

MOHINDER: Look, this man here? This is the man I work for. His name is Bob. I'll take you to him.

MATT: Fine. After we find my dad.

MOHINDER: You leave Molly out of this! You're asking a little girl to confront her worst nightmare!

MATT: Maybe confronting it is exactly what she needs.

MOHINDER: Oh, so this is all about helping Molly? Because to me it sounds like a 13-year-old boy trying to make his daddy pay for leaving him.

MATT: And you know everything about daddy issues.

MOHINDER: Yeah, I do.

(The floorboards behind them creak. They turn around as Molly steps out of the bedroom.)

MOLLY: I'll do it for you, Matt. I'll find your father.

(Matt gives the photo to Mohinder and gives Molly a hug.)

MATT: Thank you.

CUT TO:



[INT. (NEW ORLEANS) BURGER BONANZA – NIGHT]

(Monica flips through a magazine as business is quiet and the place is empty.)

MR. LAMONT: Monica, it's dead tonight. Let's close up. (He puts the keys on the counter.) You get the front door. I'll get the back.

MONICA: Sure.

(Monica takes the keys and goes to lock the door. Before she can, a man pushes the door open.)

MONICA: Sorry, we're closed.

LATE CUSTOMER: But the sign say y'all close at 10:00. Look, I'm hungry.

MONICA: My boss, he's making me close up for the night.

LATE CUSTOMER: And I said I'm hungry. (He pushes the door open and points a gun at her. Monica backs away, her hands up.) And while you're at it, I'll take everything you got in the register!

MONICA: Okay, okay, okay.

LATE CUSTOMER: Sit down right there!

(Monica sits down.)

(The customer heads for the cash register and starts emptying it out. After she calms down a bit, she seems more angry than scared.)

(She gets up and runs toward the front. The customer is gathering the bills out of the register.)

(And just like the wrestling guy on television, Monica grabs the pole, swings around and kicks the customer. He goes flying through the glass and hits the floor. He groans.)

(Mr. Lamont comes running out to the front.)

(As soon as the customer sees him, he gets up and runs away.)

MONICA: Did you just see ...

MR. LAMONT: Where'd you learn that?

MONICA: On TV.

CUT TO:



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

(Molly sits on the couch, a map book on her lap. Mohinder is sitting next to her with his arm around her shoulders while Matt sits across from her.)

MOHINDER: We're right here for you.

MATT: Yeah, we're gonna protect you.

(Molly concentrates. She flips the book page over.)

INSERT: VARIOUS FLASHES OF – A CITY

MOLLY: I see a city.

(Molly puts the point of the pushpin she’s holding down on the paper: 811.)

MATT: Philadelphia. Good.

(She slides the point of the pushpin along the paper – a loud SCRATCHING NOISE sounds.)

INSERT: FLASH OF – AN APARTMENT BUILDING

MOLLY: An apartment building.

MATT: What floor?

MOLLY: I don't want to go in.

MOHINDER: He can't hurt you. It's okay.

INSERT: FLASH OF – AN APARTMENT BUILDING

MOLLY: Third floor.

MATT: Okay, good. Good, what's the apartment number?

INSERT: FLASH OF – A YELLOW DOOR

MOLLY: He knows I'm here. He's coming.

MATT: Okay, Molly, what's the apartment number? Quickly, come on.

INSERT: FLASH OF – THE NUMBER 9

MOLLY: Nine.

MATT: Nine, good girl. All right, get out of there right now.

INSERT: FLASH OF – EYES AND THE SYMBOLS

(The yellow door shakes and rattles.)

MOLLY: He sees me, he – (shouts) Leave me alone!

(Molly starts struggling.)

MATT: Molly, get out of there!

MOLLY: (screams) Leave me alone!

(She screams and struggles. Matt and Mohinder are holding her.)

MATT: Molly, Molly!

(Molly stops struggling.)

MOLLY: Matt.

(Molly collapses.)

MOHINDER: Molly?

MATT: Molly.

MOHINDER: Molly!

(Mohinder checks her breathing.)

MOHINDER: She's breathing.

MATT: What happened?

(He checks her eyes.)

MOHINDER: She's in shock. She won't wake up.

MATT: Come on, Molly, you did it. (desperate) Molly, it's time to get up! Molly! It’s time to wake up! Come on, wake up!

MOHINDER: Matt, don't. (softer) Don't.

(Matt quiets down. Molly is unmoving.)

MOLLY: (v.o., screaming thoughts) Matt! Help me!

(Matt can hear her calling him.)

MOLLY: (v.o., screaming thoughts) Matt!

SMASH TO BLACK.
