Peter Petrelli se téléporte de nouveau dans le présent à Montréal. Soudainement, il entend un bruit et, d'instinct, il envoie une décharge électrique. Une main sort de l'ombre et absorbe l'éclair électrique avant de se régénérer aussitôt. Adam Monroe s'avance alors. Il est perplexe quant aux raisons pour lesquelles Peter ne se souvient pas de lui, mais il comprend finalement que l'Haïtien doit avoir effacé sa mémoire. Adam presse Peter à se souvenir. Il lui apprend qu'il a le même don que lui : il peut se régénérer. Il peut donc utiliser cette faculté pour réparer les cellules de son cerveau qui ont été affectées par L'Haïtien. Peter sort alors de sa poche une photo de lui en compagnie d'un autre homme. Adam lui dit qu'il s'agit de son frère, Nathan. Aussitôt, Peter se rappelle des événements qui se sont déroulés depuis le 8 novembre 2006 (4 mois auparavant) : le jour de l'explosion.

 

Quatre mois plus tôt

 

  Au Kirby Plaza, Nathan attrappe Peter et s'envole avec lui pour éviter qu'il explose en plein coeur de New York. Au-dessus de l'océan, Peter insiste pour que Nathan le laisse car il ne sera pas capable de survivre aux radiations qu'il émet. Nathan hésite trop longtemps et des brûlures commencent à apparaître sur son visage et son corps. Il lâche finalement son frère et tente de s'éloigner mais il est trop lent et Peter explose à proximité de lui. Le corps inconscient de Nathan tombe en direction de la mer mais Peter, sain et sauf, vole en sa direction, l'attrappe puis le conduit à l'hôpital. Aux urgences, un policier semble vouloir interroger Peter sur les raisons des blessures de son frère. Cependant, Peter profite d'un moment d'inattention de l'officier pour devenir invisible et s'échapper. Alors qu'il quitte l'hôpital, Bob et Elle apparaissent de nulle part et Elle jette Peter au sol à l'aide un éclair. Peter inconscient, Bob demande à Elle s'il était vraiment nécessaire d'utiliser autant de force contre lui. Elle sourit et répond qu"il peut le supporter".

 

Pendant ce temps, à l'Hôpital Roosevelt, Niki et Micah apprennent par le Dr.Brooks que l'opération de D.L. a été un succès.

 

A Saint Domingue, Alejandro vient juste de se marier avec Gloria. Alors que les jeunes mariés sortent de l'église, Maya les regarde avec un air de mépris. Plus tard, à la réception, Maya admet qu'elle ne connaît pas assez bien Gloria car cela ne fait que 4 mois qu'elle sort avec son frère. A la vue de Gloria dansant avec son ex-petit ami, Maya est hors d'elle. Elle s'éloigne et se met à pleurer, une larme noire commence à couler de son oeil mais elle l'essuie aussitôt. Aussitôt après, Maya entend des gémissements depuis l'intérieur d'une cabane. Elle entre à l'intérieur et y découvre Gloria et Gilberto entrain de s'embrasser assez intensément. Maya est indignée et hurle sur sa belle-soeur. Mais Gilberto plaque Maya contre la porte et la met en garde de ne pas répéter ce qu'elle vient de voir. Maya le défie en lui demandant ce qu'il fera. Gilberto à bout de nerfs commence alors à étouffer Maya en l'étranglant. Soudainement, les yeux de Maya deviennent noirs ainsi que ceux de Gilberto et de Gloria. Les deux amants s'écroulent au sol. Maya, stupéfaite d'être toujours en vie et choquée, part se regarder dans le miroir et constate ses larmes noires. Elle se précipite à l'extérieur de la cabane pour découvrir que tous les invités de la cérémonie sont étendus sur le sol. Maya pense être la seule à avoir survécue jusqu'à ce qu'Alejandro la rejoigne, apparement insensible au pouvoir de sa soeur. Sanglotant, Maya raconte à Alejandro qu'elle pense avoir tué tous ces gens et qu'elle étonnée que son frère n'ait rien. Tous deux fuient finalement la réception en laissant tous les cadavres derrière eux.

 

  Peter se réveille dans le Bureau de Bob dans les bâtiments de la compagnie quand Elle le choque avec de l'électricité. Il demande aussitôt à Bob et Elle où se trouve Nathan. Bob le rassure que les meilleures médecins s'occupent de lui mais que son cas est désespéré. Il poursuit en disant que, tant que Peter ne maîtrisera pas ses pouvoirs, il sera un danger pour toutes les personnes qui l'entourent. Ils utilisent ainsi le pouvoir de l'Haïtien pour empêcher Peter d'utiliser ses capacités. Bob conclut en disant que La Compagnie travaille sur un traitement pour désactiver ses pouvoirs pour qu'il n'ait plus jamais à s'inquiéter de blesser quelqu'un.

 

 

 

 Nathan se réveille dans une chambre d'hôpital et trouve sa mère, Angela à son chevet. La première chose qu'il lui demande est à propos de Peter. Angela lui répond que Peter a disparu mais qu'il doit être heureux d'être encore en vie. Nathan redresse son lit de manière à pouvoir se regarder dans le miroir. Angela hésite, mais le laisse finalement se voir. Nathan ne peut alors que constater son horrible réflection irradiée dans le miroir.

Niki et Micah retrouvent D.L. pour la première fois après son opération. Ils sont heureux de se retrouver enfin et que D.L. soit en forme. Cependant, Niki annonce au médecin qu'ils n'ont pas d'assurance et qu'ils vont avoir du mal à honorer les frais de l'opération. Le médecin la rassure : quelqu'un a déjà réglé la facture, il s'agit de Bob qui s'avance alors vers Niki. Bob démontre qu'il est au courant des événements qui se sont déroulés la veille au Kirby Plaza puis annonce à Niki qu'il peut la soigner pour qu'elle se débarasse de Jessica, cependant elle devra quitter momentanément sa famille et rejoindre la compagnie.

Elle est entrain de couper les cheveux de Peter dans les bâtiments de la compagnie. Elle annonce à Peter qu'il doit prendre ce qu'elle appelle les "pilules de l'Haïtien" chaque jour pour supprimer ses pouvoirs. Avant de partir, elle lui lance quelques rayons électriques sur le sommet du crâne en lui disant que ça fait mal pour le moment mais qu'il finira par s'y habituer. Elle s'en va finalement et laisse Peter seul dans sa cellule. Ce dernier entend une voix venant du conduit d'aération : la voix d'Adam Monroe.

 

Trois mois plus tôt

 

 

Micah fête son 11ème anniversaire avec ses parents. Niki demande à son fils de faire un voeu, alors Micah répond qu'il souhaite pour sa famille d'être les "Quatre Fantastiques... moins un". Il suggère qu'il pourrait capter la radio de la police pour que ses parents jouent les héros. D.L. lui répond que ce n'est pas possible mais qu'il a trouvé un nouveau travail qui le rendra fier. Après la petite fête, Niki jette les pilules que Bob lui a données pour traiter sa schizophrénie dans l'évier.

Dans les bâtiments de la compagnie, Adam fait remarquer à Peter qu'ils se connaissent maintenant depuis 1 mois mais qu'il ne lui a jamais donné son nom. Peter se présente alors.

 

 

Deux mois plus tôt

 


Peter est dans sa cellule quand Elle y entre. Peter lui annonce qu'il n'est "pas d'humeur", mais Elle lui répond qu'elle augmentera sa dose. Peter accepte finalement de se plier au petit jeu sadique et surtout électrique de la jeune femme. Elle raconte ensuite son passé misérable. Après son départ, Adam avertit Peter qu'il devrait s'éloigner d'elle. Peter répond qu'il ne souhaite rien d'autre d'elle que les pilules. Adam lui révèle alors que le "traitement" n'est rien qu'un subterfuge pour les garder. Peter ne le croit pas et lui répond que la compagnie a créé cette clinique pour les aider. Adam rétorque qu'il ne s'agit pas d'une clinique mais d'une prison.

 

 

 Angela retourne voir Nathan à l'hôpital mais celui-ci est déjà en compagnie de sa femme. Angela attend alors dans le couloir qu'Heidi sorte. Nathan lui a raconté la vraie raison de ses blessures, mais Angela tourne cela à la dérision. Elle révèle finalement à la jeune femme que la famille Petrelli a un sombre secret : le père de Nathan était paranoïaque et son fils en a hérité. Elle demande à Heidi de garder le secret.

Niki est chez elle et répète devant le miroir son discours de vente pour son premier jour de travail chez un concessionnaire automobile. D.L. la surprend et lui dit qu'il est extrêment fier d'elle avant de partir amener Micah à l'école. Face à Niki, une voix lui dit qu'elle aurait mieux fait de prendre ses médicaments. Niki est surprise du retour de Jessica, mais la voix lui apprend qu'elle n'est pas Jessica mais Gina, le pseudonyme qu'utilisait Niki lorsqu'elle vivait à Los Angeles. Gina parvient à enfermer Niki dans le miroir et à s'en aller.

 

Dans le bâtiment de la compagnie, Peter demande à Bob s'il peut rendre visite à sa famille pour 1 ou 2 jours, mais Bob lui répond que ce n'est pas possible pour le moment. Puis Bob s'en va pendant que Peter lui demande s'il sortira un jour de là. Adam lui fait remarquer que sa chambre est devenue une prison. Adam lui apprend ensuite qu'il serait capable de sauver Nathan avec seulement une petite quantité de son sang, mais Peter doit les faire sortir.

D.L. est maintenant un pompier et est envoyé sur un incendie de maison. Une mère paniquée supplie les pompiers de sauver sa fille qui est toujours dans la maison. D.L. se précipite alors à l'intérieur malgré le danger et utilise son pouvoir pour traverser les flammes sans être blessé. Il sauve la petite fille et la rend à sa mère.
Plus tard, D.L. rentre à la maison et trouve Micah entrain de regarder un reportage où l'on voit son père sauver la petite fille de l'incendie. Il dit à son père qu'il est vraiment un héros. D.L. lui demande ensuite où est sa mère et Micah répond qu'elle n'est pas encore rentrée. Suspicieux, D.L. va dans la chambre et trouve un message écrit au rouge à lèvres sur le miroir : "Partie à L.A., a+".

 

Un mois plus tôt

Elle retrouve une nouvelle fois Peter dans sa cellule. Peter est étonné de constater que la jeune femme ne veut pas l'électrocuté aujourd'hui. Il l'attrape et l'amène sur son lit. Alors qu'elle tente de prendre sa main pour assouvir son désir sadique, Peter l'embrasse. Elle le choque malgré tout par ses lèvres. Peter se lève ensuite pour prendre ses pilules, mais dès le départ d'Elle, il les recrache dans les toilettes. Adam lui dit qu'il devrait tenter d'utiliser ses pouvoirs pour s'échapper 

étant donné qu'il ne prend plus son traitement depuis 5 jours. Peter se concentre sur le mur qui les sépare et parvient à le traverser. Peter rencontre pour la première fois Adam et lui fait remarquer que pour une personne de 400 ans, il est plutôt bien conservé. Peter et Adam s'en vont aussitôt pour soigner Nathan.

 

Alejandro retrouve Maya dans un couvent de Zulia (Venezuela). Alejandro souhaite comprendre ce qui a amené sa soeur à empoisonner toutes ces personnes. Maya tente d'expliquer qu'elle ne contrôle pas ce pouvoir, mais un policier arrive déjà pour l'arrêter. Maya, paniquée, se met à pleurer. La policier et la Mère Supèrieure s'effondrent jusqu'à ce qu'Alejandro saisissent les mains de sa soeur et "ranime" les victimes. Finalement, Maya et Alejandro s'enfuient.

 

 

Gina est dans une boîte de nuit à Los Angeles. Elle prend de la drogue et danse avec plusieurs hommes. D.L. arrive dans l'entrée de la discothèque et demande au videur s'il a vu Jessica en lui montrant une photo. D.L. la trouve finalement et s'adresse à elle en tant que Jessica, ce à quoi Gina répond "essaye encore". Un des hommes avec qui danse Gina dit à D.L. de laisser tomber mais ce dernier lui répond de rester hors de ça. L'homme tente alors de frapper D.L. au visage mais celui-ci utilise son pouvoir pour ne pas être touché, puis renvoie un coup de poing à son agresseur dans le ventre pour le neutraliser. D.L. montre à Gina une photo de famille ce qui aide Niki a reprendre le dessus. Alors qu'ils quittent la boîte de nuit, Niki demande à son mari comment il l'a retrouvée et D.L. répond qu'elle ne pourra jamais se débarasser de lui. Soudainement, sorti de nulle part, l'homme frappé par D.L. apparaît et lui tire dans le torse à bout-portant. Le sang de D.L. gigle sur le visage de Niki tandis qu'elle s'écroule au sol, paralysée par l'émotion.

 

Trois semaines plus tôt

Micah, Damon, Monica, Nana et Niki sont aux funérailles de D.L.. Micah tient la Médaille d'Honneur de son père entre les mains. Bobapparaît et insiste pour que Niki suive le traitement de la compagnie.

Adam et Peter arrivent finalement au chevet de Nathan. Adam se prélève un échantillon de son sang et l'injecte dans la perfusion de Nathan. Ils s'apprêtent à s'en aller, lorsque, sous leurs yeux, Nathan commence déjà à guérir. Peter récupère avant de partir une photo de Nathan et lui.

  Dans un port de New York, Adam donne à Peter son passeport et un ticket d'avion pour Montréal. Elle et l'Haïtien les retrouvent. Adam explique alors à Peter de le retrouver dans un entrepôt au 121, rue St Jacques à Montréal. Ils se séparent et s'enfuient vers des chemins opposés. Elle leur envoie des rayons électriques : Adam est ainsi projeté contre un mur tandis que Peter chute et que ses vêtements prennent feu. Elle poursuit Adam tandis que l'Haïtien chasse Peter. Peter ôte sa chemise et s'enfuit. Il escalade une barrière et atterrit dans une zine de stockage avec de très nombreux containers. L'Haïtien parvient finalement à rattraper Peter et à le pousser à l'intérieur d'un container. Peter tente d'utiliser ses pouvoirs pour se défendre mais l'Haïtien les bloque. L'Haïtien menotte alors Peter dans un coin du container et lui apprend qu'il ne le ramènera pas à la compagnie mais qu'il le laissera là pour le protéger. L'Haïtien donne son collier symbolique à Peter en lui expliquant qu'il règle sa dette envers Angela Petrelli en le sauvant. Il lui dit finalement "ton secret est en sécurité avec moi" avant de poser sa main sur son crâne et d'effacer sa mémoire. Puis il s'en va et ferme le container derrière lui.

 

Au temps présent

 

  • Maya conduit Sylar et Alejandro à travers le désert américain.


 • Niki quitte Bob et l'hôpital de la compagnie.


 • Nathan arrive devant la porte d'entrée du Wandering Rocks dans l'espoir de retrouver Peter.


 • Peter reprend ses esprits au moment présent, choqué. Il annonce à Adam qu'il se souvient de tout. Adam lui demande alors "on va sauver le monde ?". Peter hoche la tête en souriant.

ADAM MONROE: So the Haitian's taken liberties with your mind.

PETER: Haitian.

ADAM MONROE: That explains why you fell off the face of the earth. You can get back your memory. I know how.

PETER: How?

ADAM MONROE: Healing. You can do what I can do. Which means the mind has to repair itself.

PETER: How do you suggest I go about doing that?

ADAM MONROE: Think about what matters most to you. Do you know what that is?

[INT. (NEW YORK) THE COMPANY – BOB’S OFFICE -- DAY]

(Peter’s eyes open. Elle strokes his forehead. Bob stands behind her, watching them.)

BOB: He's not a toy, Elle.

ELLE: He could be.

(Elle touches Peter’s nose and zaps him lightly. Peter sits up, gasping and disoriented. Elle is amused.)

PETER: Where am I?

BOB: Someplace safe.

PETER: My brother -- I was in a hospital.

BOB: We have the finest doctors in the world working on him. But his situation is dire.

PETER: So who are you? What am I doing here?

(Elle smiles and touches the hair at Peter’s neck – a strange, intimate motion.)

BOB: I am an old friend of your parents.

PETER: Yeah, I've seen you before.

BOB: And as I said before, you're safe here. But your brother ... that's a different story. He almost died.

ELLE: Because of you, Peter.

(Elle touches Peter’s shoulders and neck. Again, oddly intimate for strangers.)

ELLE: Hey, it's not like it was your idea to go nuclear and take out half of New York City.

PETER: Oh, you know about that?

BOB: Yes, as long as your abilities are in control of you, you will always be a hazard to yourself, to your family ...

(Peter finally pulls away from Elle’s odd caresses.)

ELLE: ... the whole world.

PETER: Believe me, if I could turn them off, I would.

ELLE: Don't worry, we've done that for you.

(He looks at Bob. Bob nods. Peter looks at the glass of water on the table. He reaches for it, but it doesn’t move. Elle takes Peter’s hand.)

ELLE: At least for now.

PETER: How did you ...

(Elle threads her fingers through Peter’s.)

BOB: My colleague here is able to suppress the abilities in people around him.

(REVEAL: The Haitian steps into camera frame. He’s been in the room. Peter turns and looks at him.)

PETER: I don't understand.

(Peter looks at them.)

PETER: What is this place?

BOB: You are in a facility designed to help people just like you.

(Bob sits down.)

ELLE: Peter, we can help you go back to a normal life.

BOB: Thirty years ago, we had to shut down research on a vaccine which could disable your powers. But due to recent events, we have reinstated that research. And I'm very happy to say that we're very close to finding a cure for you.

PETER: Forever?

BOB: You will never have to worry about hurting anyone you love again.

(Peter thinks about it. Elle smiles encouragingly at him.)

PETER: How long until it's ready?

ELLE: Good! (She sits even closer to him.) You're making the right choice.

(Bob laughs. Peter still isn’t sure.)

BOB: Good boy.

NATHAN’S POV: BLUR IN

ANGELA: You have had a terrible accident.

NATHAN: (rasps) Pe-ter ...

ANGELA: He's missing. He's missing, Nathan. The, uh, Coast Guard is searching a hundred square miles of the ocean. But you're lucky to be alive.

NIKI: Dr. Brooks. Um, I wanted you to know that we don't have insurance. But I'm sure that we can come up ...

DR. BROOKS: (interrupts) You don't have to worry about that. It's all been taken care of.

NIKI: I don't understand. How? Who paid?

(Bob walks up to them.)

BOB: Uh, that'd be me.

(Dr. Brooks leaves.)

NIKI: Do I know you?

BOB: Call me Bob. Did you happen to see a morning newspaper?

NIKI: What? No, why?

BOB: Not a mention of what happened last night on Kirby Plaza or the untimely death of our friend Mr. Linderman.

NIKI: Who the hell are you?

BOB: Someone who wants to help. Linderman made a mess of things and I'm here to right the ship. So to speak.

NIKI: Okay. You've done that by paying our bills.

BOB: No, I meant helping you with your illness. I know you think Jessica is gone.

NIKI: How do you know about that?

BOB: But we've discovered that when these abilities manifest, the way the mind deals with the new reality sometimes results in a fracture of sorts—a split personality.

NIKI: No, I'm finished with Jessica.

BOB: How do you know a new personality won't emerge? I can get you all the help you need. The best care in the world.

NIKI: Uh-huh. What's the catch?

BOB: The catch is you have to leave your family and enter the program.

NIKI: I just went through hell to get my family back together. I'm not leaving them now.

BOB: There is medication you can try at home, but ...

NIKI: But what?

BOB: It's not without side effects. And as you just said, you've been through so much for your family. Do you really wanna risk ... losing them all again?

ELLE: Yep. It's a little cocktail they cooked up here in the lab. It controls the abilities. Dampens them.

PETER: Like that guy who was standing in the corner of Bob's office.

ELLE: The Haitian. Yeah. Sorta. So let's just call them ... Haitian pills.

(Elle fills a cup with water and hands it to him. He takes the pills and drinks it down with the water as she watches him closely. Elle removes the towel and rubs her hand over Peter’s newly cut hair.)

ELLE: Bye, Peter.

PETER: Ow! That hurts.

ELLE: You'll get used to it. And then you'll start to like it.

DL: Eleven years old. Almost the man of the house now.

(Niki is distracted.)

MICAH: Mom?

NIKI: Did you make a wish, baby?

DL: Don't tell us. 'Cause you know it's not gonna come true.

MICAH: You both already know what I wished for, anyways.

(They sit down.)

DL: Micah, we've been over this.

MICAH: But I've got it all figured out. I could make the car radio pick up the police band. We could go to the crime scene and be heroes.

DL: Or the police could just take care of it.

MICAH: We could be like the Fantastic Four ... minus one. But still.

DL: Micah, I wanna be a hero to you. And I finally figured out how to do that. I think I got a job. A good job.

MICAH: Doing what?

DL: Something that's gonna make you proud of me, I promise. Come on. I promised I'd take you bowling, right? Let's go.

MICAH: Mom, you coming?

DL: Your mom's had a long day, Micah. Go get your jacket.

(Micah goes into the house.)

NIKI: All I want is to smile at my boy on his birthday, and I can't even do that.

DL: They said it's just gonna take a little while for the medication to level out.

ADAM MONROE: Well, you came to the right place. I have to warn you, though, it does get a bit old. Let me guess. You were living a perfectly ordinary life ... until one day you discovered you could do incredible things. I bet it was wonderful at first. You thought perhaps you could save the world ... and then you realized, tragically, that you were dangerous. I'll let you talk to me after a decade. Oh, actually, talk to me after three.

PETER: If they wanna leave me in here forever, that's fine by me.

ADAM MONROE: You've been through something awful, haven't you?

PETER: I'm not in the mood today, Elle.

ELLE: Just a little one? I'll up your dose.

PETER: I'm fine. Just a little one.

(Peter sits up in bed. They put their fingertips together and electricity snaps between their fingers.

PETER: Oh!

(Peter pulls away. Elle smiles and gives him a big hug.)

(Peter pushes her away and stands up. He looks at his sore fingers and goes to the table with the pill cup and empty water cup. He picks up the pill cup.)

PETER: Not that a fistful of pills everyday isn't fun, but ... It's been two months now and I still don't know a thing about you.

(He swallows the pills dry.)

PETER: I was just thinking ... Maybe there's more to you than the whole sadistic lightning thing, that's all. What's your story?

(She stands up, walks over to him and takes his hands.)

ELLE: I liked you better when you just laid there.

PETER: So you're not gonna tell me? What are you, afraid? (She smiles at him.) No. You just like to be in control. I get it. I figured as much. Sorry I asked. Won't happen again.

(He turns his back to her and gives her the empty water cup. She goes to the door, then turns around.)

ELLE: I accidentally set my grandmother's house on fire when I was six. Caused a blackout in four counties in Ohio when I was eight. I spent my ninth birthday in a glass room with an IV of lithium in my arm. I've lived in this building for sixteen years ... ever since the shrinks diagnosed me as a sociopath with paranoid delusions. But they were just out to get me because I threatened to kill 'em. I'm 24 years old, and I've never gone on a date. Never been on a roller coaster. Never been swimming. And now you know everything there is to know about me. I don't have the luxury of being more interesting than that.

(She heads back to the door.)

ELLE: Later, alligator.

(Elle leaves. The door slams shut behind her. Peter walks up to the window and watches Elle leave.)

ADAM MONROE: (o.s.) Word to the wise, friend. I would keep my distance from that one. I caved in a desperate moment six years ago, and I'm still paying the price.

PETER: Don't worry. I don't want anything from her except the drugs.

ADAM MONROE: I'm sorry, I keep forgetting. You still believe them.

PETER: What do you mean?

ADAM MONROE: This cure of theirs. They've been days away from perfecting it since I got here thirty years ago. Bob's not trying to fix you, Peter.

PETER: No. They created this facility to help us.

ADAM MONROE: You're not in a facility, Peter. Look around. (Peter looks around.) You're in a prison. You don't believe me? Why don't you try getting out?

HEIDI: It must be the pain medication.

ANGELA: You deserve to know this. I tried to keep it from you and the boys.

HEIDI: What?

ANGELA: There's a dark secret in the Petrelli family. It started with their father. Delusions of grandeur, paranoia. It lead to his suicide. But sadly ... that disease has obviously been passed down.

ADAM: Suddenly the room starts to feel like a cage.

PETER: I don't understand. If they're not gonna help us, why are we here?

ADAM: To keep us from being out there.

PETER: Why, because we're dangerous?

ADAM: No, Peter, it's because we could save the world. Years ago, I tried to take my abilities public. I thought that if everyone knew that my blood had curing powers, I could help. How naive I was.

PETER: That's why they put you in here.

ADAM: Well, if it were possible to kill me, they would have, I assure you. Instead, I'm locked up in here. When I could be curing your brother.

[INT. (NEW YORK) THE COMPANY – HALLWAY – DAY]

(Niki meets Bob in the hallway.)

NIKI: Thank you.

BOB: Yeah.

(Niki heads out with her suitcase. Bob turns and watches her go.)

(HOLD on Bob.)

CUT TO:



[EXT. WANDERING ROCKS PUB (STOCK) – NIGHT]

(It’s raining.)

(A car pulls up in front. Nathan pays the driver and gets out to look at the pub.)

MOHINDER: (v.o.) For it is the cruel irony of life that we are destined to hold the dark with the light, the good with the evil, success with disappointment. This is what separates us, what makes us human.

CUT TO:



[INT. (MONTREAL) WAREHOUSE -- NIGHT]

(ZOOM BACK into PETER’S EYE.)

(Peter staggers backward. He looks around as everything comes back to him.)

(Adam looks at him.)

MOHINDER: (v.o.) And in the end, we must fight to hold on to.

CAPTION:
      PRESENT DAY

PETER: I remember. I remember everything.

ADAM: Good, then. Shall we save the world?

(With a determined look in his eyes, Peter nods.)

FADE TO BLACK.
