As Claire continues to adjust to college life, she must figure out how to deal with her ability having been revealed.
The preview given at the end of "Heroes" premiere suggests that Claire will take a huge portion of the next episode. The cheerleader who wanted to lead a normal life has to suffer the consequences of being caught by her roommate while recovering from a fall. H.R.G. suggests that they hire the Haitian to clear Gretchen's memory.
Meanwhile, Peter faces unexpected consequences for his heroic acts and encounters a reluctant new hero (guest star Deanne Bray). He also meets the leader of The Carnival, Samuel, who moves heaven and earth to recapture the memories of his late brother Joseph. Elsewhere, Matt struggles with his internal demons as Sylar mysteriously resurfaces.
Titled "Ink", the episode airs on Monday, September 28. The title may refer to one of the items that Samuel posseses as the ringleader. He has among others, a magic compass and a magic ink pen.
