Synopsis


Suresh is angry with Matt for letting Molly look for his father. In New Orleans, Monica refuses to give information to the police about the burglar. Across the ocean, Caitlin closes up the pub for a little kissing action with Peter. Meanwhile, a woman named Elle, who has the ability to create electricity, comes looking for Peter at the shipping yards.

Ricky walks into the pub to catch Peter kissing his sister. Fitzpatrick tells Peter that an American girl was looking for him at the docks. Ricky says he'll take care of the American girl and not to tell Caitlin about "any of this."

Monica tells Camille that she thinks something strange is happening to her - her body does things before her brain knows it's happening. In Philadelphia, Nathan accompanies Matt to visit his father. Matt breaks into the apartment and Maury greets him at gunpoint. Matt yells for him to explain why he's in Molly's dreams. Maury says that Matt has it "all wrong" and points out a photograph of himself with the red helix over it.

Maury explains that he, Kaito, Angela Petrelli, Linderman, and others found each other years ago and thought they could "save the world." When Matt tries to read his dad's mind, he feels a burst of pain in his head. Maury offers to tell Matt everything he knows if he unlocks the cuffs.

Monica comes home to find Micah playing the piano; no one has touched the instrument since her mom died. Monica finds herself playing the piano, even though she doesn't know how. In New York, Suresh speaks with Noah, who is in Russia, to tell him that he's taking Molly into the Company for treatment.

With his cuffs off, Maury apologizes for leaving Matt and his mom, saying that when he learned he could read minds, he used his ability against people. He goes on to say that some of the others in his group began using their powers for evil and that the power to read minds leads to much more. To demonstrate, he takes Matt into a room where Matt experiences his worst nightmare. Nathan follows, finding himself on the Deveaux rooftop in a post-explosion New York. While both are trapped in their nightmares, Maury leaves the apartment.

A museum restoration expert looks over the scrolls Ando found in the sword. Ando asks for help in deciphering the damaged ones. The scroll recounts Hiro's further adventures with Kensei and the trials that bring them closer to rescuing Yaeko's father. In Japan, Hiro and Kensei arrive back to Yaeko's side with the final piece of the map showing the location of White Beard's camp.

Micah tells Monica that he thinks she has the special ability of a "muscle mimic," a copycat; he demonstrates his own ability to interface with machines. Meanwhile, Molly rests at a Company facility, and Bob tells Suresh he's going on a new mission. Just then, Niki breaks loose in a frenzy and starts choking Bob until Suresh tasers her to the ground.

Caitlin takes Peter to her apartment where he sees some of her paintings. As the rain falls, Peter says it's time for him to open the box: a passport, a plane ticket from New York to Montreal, and a few other odds and ends are inside. He gets up and begins painting something while in a trance. At the same time, Elle arrives at the pub where Ricky tells her he's never seen Peter. She locks and door and electricity begins to course through her hands.

Niki comes to in a room and Bob assures her that the Company will get her well. When Bob leaves, Suresh starts undoing her restraints and says he'll get her out of there. She doesn't want to go, explaining that she gave up her son to get help at this facility.

Nathan and Matt's nightmares continue. Nathan is surrounded by demonic versions of himself, while Matt finds a baby crying in a prison room. Janice, his ex-wife, enters to tell him that he can read minds and knows the truth about the baby's father, but he left anyway... just like his dad did. Both fight their way out of their nightmares, emerging back in Maury's apartment where they find a picture of Bob with the red helix smudged over it.

Hiro, Kensei, and Yaeko set out to find White Beard. They reach the encampment to find hundreds of tents in a sprawling compound they plan on attacking that night - three against an entire army. In the restoration lab, the curator tells Ando the rest of the scrolls are too damaged and need to be repaired before they can read on.

Micah watches Monica practice some kung fu moves and they vow to keep each other's secrets. When Micah goes off to bed, there's a knock at the door: it's Suresh. Across the ocean, Elle tells someone over the phone that she's on Peter's trail and that she had to kill "some guy" along the way. She apologizes, "sorry, daddy, it won't happen again," and says she'll come home.

Peter finishes his painting: an image of a man and a woman in Paris. The phone rings and Caitlin learns that Ricky has been killed.
