Previously on Heroes.

What the hell
did you do to me?

I could ask you
the same thing.

NIKI: All I know is that
I woke up in your room somehow
and you were gone.

They blackmailed me
just Iike they're gonna
blackmail you.

For a man whose
campaign is founded
on sound family values,

this could be really
embarrassing for you,

considering your wife.

Two million dollars
makes me a candidate
in your pocket.

Four million
makes me a congressman.


It's about the videotape.

The tape where you're,
Iike, killing yourself
Iike 20 times.

That was attempt number six.

It was in my backpack,
and now it's not.

It's gone.

What do you mean,
it's gone?

CLAIRE: We have got
to find that tape.

Dad, how did you
get out of jail?

I walked out
because I got a secret.

Mom has a secret, too.

What do you think
D.L. is gonna do when
he finds out what we've done?

What we've done?

We framed him.

I'm taking Micah,
and I'm taking the money.

You're not taking anything.



Everything we say,
everything you see,

by tomorrow it won't matter.

What, a guy can't cook
dinner for his wife

without being accused
of cheating on her?

Well, you were missing
for a day and now this.

I Iove you.
It's Iike you're in my head.

There's a piece
about that size.
I painted it weeks ago.

Simone has it.
What was it of?

I don't remember.
I was high.

Then we need
to get it back.

Tell her a guy
from the future said
you needed it.

Now AmCor is holding steady
but Yamagato...

Yamagato is down
to 215 and an eighth.

I think that's
a good bargain.

And what do you know?

You saying
I couldn't pick a stock?


Look at your sorry ass,
barely able to
make minimum wage.

Now, you Iook at me
Iiving in a penthouse
on Central Park West.

It's dying in a penthouse
on Central Park West.



Right you are,
my boy.

Right you are.

Teach you to mess with me.

Take a breath.

In the end,
all that matters is Iove.

I Iove you, Peter.

I Iove you, too, Charles.

You speak your mind.

You know who you are,
you know what you want.

That's your power.
That's your strength.

Mind if I Iet you in
on a Iittle secret, Charles?

You can say anything to me.
You know that.

I can fly.


Really? Well,
if you can fly then show me.

AII right.

Watch this.


What's wrong? Come in.

It's my dad.

That's so weird.
I was just having
a dream about him.

He passed away
about an hour ago.


I really needed to see you.


You know, I get that you're
sort of socially slow,

but you know you're
supposed to call someone
before you come over.

This you're gonna
want to hear right away.
I found the tape.

What tape?

The tape of you trying
to kill yourself 20 times.
I found it.

Look, I was Iooking
for my PSP under my bed,
right? And there it was.

Look. You're safe.

I thought this was
supposed to be good news.

Well, I can't believe
you had this entire time.

Why didn't you
Iook there before?

I did. I tore
the whole room apart.

I must have checked
the bed Iike 50 times.

Morning, Mrs. Bennet.

Morning, dog.

How are you, Zachary?

I'm all right. CIaire keeps
punching me, though.

SANDRA: Your dad's plane
is going to be Iate. I won't
be home till 8:00 or so.

I am trusting you
to hold down the fort.

Because Lyle
never Iistens to me.

Well, he will Iisten
to you today

'cause he knows
what a big day it is
for Mr. Muggles.

Thank you. And he doesn't
want to stress us out.

Does he?


Will you two help
me out to the car?

Your dad Ieft on
the sprinklers Iast night,

and I don't want to get
his paws all soggy.

Take this. Here we go.

Wish Mr. Muggles good Iuck.







Help me.

Now, things have been
really good between us

these Iast couple of days,
don't you think?

I know. I Iike it.

I just... I feel Iike
we've been really honest
with each other.

And that's good, right?


There's something that we
need to talk about, something
that I've discovered.

JANICE: I thought
I'd been so careful.

Well, what? What is it?

I don't...

JANICE: Oh, God, he knows.

What did you want to say?

It can wait, actually.
I gotta...

Gotta get to work.




TINA: Niki?

I was knocking Iike forever.

What is it?


D.L. came back.

He took him.

I tried to protect my son,

but I couldn't.

I failed him.

Landlord said Isaac's gone,
that he took his
paintings and...

Did you know
he was Ieaving?


I can't believe he would
just go Iike that, no...

Not when we were
just starting to make
sense of his paintings.

I wanted to tell him
what happened in person.

Isaac sketched it
for my dad's 70th birthday.

You know, I've been trying
to get him clean forever.

The one time I need him...
Feels Iike
everybody's Ieaving me.

I'm not going anywhere.

He was still in a coma,

and then, Iike it was any
other day, he started talking.

He said he'd been flying
all over the world,

but that is was a world
he didn't recognize.

There were so many people
filled with pain.

Nobody Iooking
out for each other.

He worried for them,

and for me,

until you told him
everything would be okay.

What do you mean, I told him?

I know,
it doesn't make any sense,

but he said that
you were flying with him,

and you told him
it was all going to be okay,

that there were
people who cared,

who would make a difference.

That you would
save the world.

After that,
he just put his head down
and he was gone.

Like he was falling asleep.

I never had that conversation
with your father.

But it sounds Iike
something you would say.

Those messages you Ieft
on my answering machine.

You said you wanted
one of Isaac's paintings

because it would help you
save the world.

It's hard to explain.

But if you had
that painting...

I could save the world.



The painting you want,
I sold it to a guy
named Linderman.

He Iives in Las Vegas.

ANGELA: Linderman gave
you four million dollars,

and you're spending it
on postcards.

I take it I'm
supposed to choose.


That one.

Oh, if that isn't a red flag,
you two agreeing on something.

AII right,
I'm gonna go to the office
and have this printed out.

Don't you want hear about how
The New York Journal wants
to do a cover story on you?

I've invited OIiver Dennison
to come for family brunch
and do an interview.

You're kidding.

No, I never kid
about family brunch.

That's because we never
have family brunch.

Nathan, this could be great.

I don't know.
Dennison could go
anywhere for a bagel.

If he comes here,
he's gonna want something.

Nothing wrong
with taking advantage
of an opportunity.


Kids, why don't you go finish
that train set we started
this morning, all right?

Come on.

Take them upstairs.

I am not going to use
my family for political gain.

Tell that to Peter.

Nathan, you've been
trying to protect me
since this happened.

And it's sweet in theory,
but in practice,
it's insulting.

I'm not made of glass.

I know.

But we don't need this.

Four points behind says we do.

Now, I've been
hiding in this house
for the Iast six months

because your polling was
afraid I'd make you Iook weak.

But now I can help
by coming forward.

Let me.

You sure about this?

Set it up.

Chef's been
cooking all morning.

OIiver will be here
in an hour.

Then I better get ready.


Good idea.

You feeling okay, man?

Hey, Tommy, yeah.
I'm good.

Come on, buddy,
we rode in the same car
together for three years.

Practically read your mind.

Dude, I don't know
where to start.

Well, how about
we go get a beer?

There's a Dodger
game at 7:00.

Yeah. Yeah,
I'd Iike that. Thanks.


What's going on?
What are you doing here?

It's Sylar.
He's killed again.

I'II brief you
on the way to the morgue.

Sylar? Who's Sylar?

I got to talk
to my watch commander.

Taken care of.
I'II be outside.

Put on some
real-person clothes.

Lyle, you better not think
I'm cleaning up after you.

We just got rid
of all those ants.

Such a dork.

ZACH: So unreal.

CLAIRE: Okay, I'm good.

ZACH: Oh, my.
Oh, my God.

What are you doing?
Oh, my God, Claire!

Shut it off.

Lyle, give it to me!
Give it to me!

ZACH: Claire!


It's amazing what
you can do with special
effects these days, huh?

That was all special effects?

Yeah, what else would it be?


What the hell is
wrong with you?

CLAIRE: Lyle, give it to me!

Get back here!

Zach, don't Iet him get away!


You okay?

Get back here!


Why would you want
to kill him again?

Because he found the tape
and then he stapled me.

Help! Somebody help me!
My sister's a freak!

AUDREY: We found him in
a parking Iot in Brentwood.

Name's Robert Fresco,
an oncologist at UCLA
Medical Center.

Okay, so we
figure out the M.O.

Well, the M.O. is
there is no M.O.

Sylar's victims are random.

Eight deaths I have
no clue how to explain.

Trust me,
this one's number nine.

Yeah, but there's
nothing out of
the ordinary here, right?

Doesn't this guy Iook
Iike any other burn victim?

He's putting out
1800 curies of radiation.


HAZMAT team scoured
the scene, but didn't find
any incendiaries.

No plutonium,
no uranium, nothing.

They did, however,
find a fingerprint

seared to the bone
Iike a brand.

Seared to the bone?

We're running it
through CODIS.

Now, if we get a match
and we can get close to him,

I'm gonna need you
to get inside his head.

Pick him out of a crowd,
find him in a building...

Right. About that.
Lately it's been harder
for me to filter the voices,

and hearing what
they're really thinking,
it can be ugly.

What's going on, Matt?


Theodore Sprague,
a.k.a. Sylar.

We got you.

So, you just going
to sit there all day
and not say a word, huh?

I want to go home.

Like I told you,
it's not safe there
with your mother.

Is she dead?


She's gonna be fine.

How do you know?

Dad, we Ieft her
on the floor.

We didn't have a choice.

Heroes don't run away.

Bad guys do.
Heroes help people, Dad.

You know what?
You're a bad guy.

I'm not a bad guy, all right?

Do you remember
when I told you that
six months ago

I started
having these bad dreams?

We all have bad dreams, Niki.

I don't think that
they were just dreams.

When it started,
I thought that

maybe somebody was
following me or something.

And I would catch
my reflection and...

But it wasn't my reflection.

It was another me.

She has a name.



When someone
tries to hurt me,
it's Iike she comes out.

There is no Jessica.

It's just you.

No, I see her in the mirror,

and she tells me
that she wants
to come out again.

And the part of me
that needs Micah back

wants to Iet her do it.

It's just complicated
with your mom and me.

What's up ahead?

Stay there.

Dad, don't!

Sit down! Wait!


Lady! You gotta get up!

You gotta get out of there.

You no worry. I help.




D.L: Micah!

Dad, I thought you were dead.

What happened?

I don't know.

We're usually in our pajamas
around the breakfast table.

You can't blame us
for cleaning up
for The Journal.

Not when the hollandaise
is made fresh.

You seem to be
adjusting well.

To the wheelchair?

You can say it,
Mr. Dennison.

I Iost my right
to be sensitive
when I married Nathan.

I'm not saying
I didn't have my darker
moments during rehabilitation.

I was angry for a Iong time.

At your husband.

Wasn't he driving?

At God.
But we seem
to have made our peace.

Oh, hello, Peter.

What's this?

It's brunch.
We always have brunch.

Since when?

Will you excuse me?
Peter, how good to see you.

Nice of you
to drop by, Peter.

Whatever this is about,
now is not the time.

Charles Deveaux died
this morning. Yeah.

I'm sorry. Were you there?

No, I wasn't.
I stopped working for him

so I could figure out
what was going on with us.

Yeah, I told you to drop
all this "I'm special" crap.

I can't, all right?
I need your help.

That man out there
is OIiver Dennison.

He's working for The Journal,
doing a story on me.

Everything I've worked for
is riding on our family
being able to sit through

a single meal together
and smile.

So I'm not
family enough for you now.

No, you're not.

Not when you're going
to ruin an election for me.

I just...

I need you to get me
a painting, all right?
Linderman bought it.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. We're
not exactly advertising that
family connection around here.

AII right, great.
So just get him on the phone

and ask about the painting.

I'm sorry.

But you're gonna
have to go, okay?

Hey, you know what?
I'm just gonna fly
off the terrace, yeah?

No? Hey, I can fly.

Nathan, so can you.
Tell you what.

Why don't we just race around
the Statue of Liberty
real quick, huh?

Get this tweedy guy
something to write about.

You wouldn't.




Sorry, Nathan gave me
an earful about
showing up in cords.

Told him
I'm trying to
stay grounded.

Good to have you back.

How'd you get this?
The issue isn't even out yet.


See? AII the same.
Hiro, Ando...

Even same car!
Nissan Versa!

I teleported.
New York City.


I freeze time, too.

Stop the explosion.
Saved your dad.

Hey, didn't you visit my mom?


We should get them
to a hospital. Can you drive?

Don't worry. Help is coming.
I called the police.

Time to go, Micah.

Dad, you saved her
Iike a real hero.

Now we can go back
and save Mom.

I wish it were that easy.

Well, it is, Dad.
We just go back.

No, Micah, it's not.

I'm sorry.
We can't go back.

We can never go back.

Come on.


Take care.


Come on!
You can't stay
in there forever!

Would you just
give me the damn tape?

I'm gonna put
this thing on YouTube,
make Iike a million bucks.

YouTube is free, you idiot.

You're not helping.

Lyle, no one can see
what's on that tape.

Are you
an alien or something?

Is he an alien, too?

Yeah, yeah,
we're gonna anal probe you.

Zach, stop scaring him.

I'm not coming out
until Mom and Dad get home.

No. No, no, no, no.
You cannot tell them.

Lyle, please,
they cannot find out
about this.

Why not?

Don't you get it?

If they found out,
Mom and Dad would

think it was
a mistake to ever adopt me.

We wouldn't be
a family anymore.


Thank you.



Wait a minute,
wait a second.

We're going in here
without backup?

No on even knows
we're here, do they?

What is this
all about with you?

You in my head, Parkman?

No, I'm just...
I'm asking a question.

It's about Sylar.

I'm not Ietting him
get away this time.

I'm taking him down.

Something's burning.


Curie Ievels are safe.


MATT: What the hell is this?

AUDREY: Hang on,
I'm getting some spikes.


Check this out.

Their faces are
all burned off.



What the hell
happened in here?

Eighteen hundred
curies of radiation.

Come on,
Iet's get out of here.

Of course I'm gonna
vote for Nathan. Yep.

If Nathan takes
care of the people

half as much as
he takes care of his brother,

it's gonna be
an interesting city.

Pretty special family.

You have no idea.

DENNISON: This is all
very inspiring.

I was surprised to Iearn
the Linderman group recently
invested in your campaign.

I don't know
why you'd be surprised.

Mr. Linderman was
a good friend of my father's.

So, you don't deny going
to Las Vegas to meet
with a reputed mobster?

Is that why you're here?

I spoke with a former member
of your security detail.

It seems there was
a bit of a scare,

that you disappeared
from the casino
for several hours,

and there was
a blond involved.

It's all right, Nathan.
You can tell him.


I'm sure you've
recently heard about
my mental health issues.

I quit my job because of it.

My brother
basically saved my Iife,

and he's convinced me
to get the help
that I needed.

There's a private
clinic outside Vegas.

Nathan went,
spoke to a doctor,
a woman doctor.

I made him promise
that no one would know.

Not even the family,
but I just don't care
who knows anymore.


I didn't want to say
anything until
I'd cleared it with you.

That's Nathan. You know,
right in the middle
of an election

he still has time to help out
his messed up Iittle brother.

Oh, well...

What's this?
They counteract
the radiation poisoning.

Oh, thanks.


One second.

Who keeps calling you?

Nobody, it's my wife.

Since when is
your wife nobody?

Listen, I don't think
this guy's Sylar.

Yeah? Well, we'II see.

Look what I found in bedroom.
Look at this. Methotrexate.

This is chemotherapy
in a pill.

This is prescribed
to Karen Sprague
and it's current.

She has cancer?

Check out
the doctor on the Iabel.

Dr. Robert Fresco.

The oncologist.

Karen Sprague's room?



Take it easy, Ted.
We just want to
ask you some questions.

I didn't mean to kill him.

Dr. Fresco said
there was nothing
he could do to save her.

I tried to convince him,
you know.

There must be
something else
that he could do.


Then we argued,
and I Iost control.

We can talk
about this downtown.

Hey, Iet her go!

If you Iet me
stay with my wife.

No, you Iet her go
or I shoot.

Do you have any idea
what would happen if you
did that? Because I don't.

Maybe I'II explode.
Maybe I'II take out
this whole hospital.

Maybe I'II wipe out
this city Iike an atomic bomb.

Just Ieave me alone!
We can't do that.

KAREN: Stop, Ted, stop.

Karen wants you to stop.

How could you say that?

She says you need to Iisten,
Ted. You never Iisten.
You're too damn stubborn,

but you're still
her Teddy Bear.

Wait a minute,
you can hear her?

He's telling the truth, Ted.
Listen to him.


What's she saying?

She's saying she...

She doesn't blame you

for all the pain
and the worry.

She's saying
it's not your fault, Ted.

She shouldn't be here.

It's not fair.

MATT: She's saying
it never is.

She said
that was the best date.

The picnic on the beach
and it poured sheets
and sheets of rain.

We sat in my car

and Iistened to the whole
American Beauty album.

She remembers it all.

She always will.


What's she saying now?

Hi, this is Niki Sanders
from Las Vegas.

I need your help.

I know that I'm probably
the last person
that you want to talk to.

You should not
have called me here.

I know that
I have no right to,

but I need your help.

My husband took my son.

I have nowhere else to go.

I'm sorry. I can't help you.

You have the wrong number.

Hi, hon. Where are the boys?

In the playroom.

Do you still Iove me, Nathan?

Of course, I do.

I know what this chair
means to us as a couple.

But I need you to know
that I'm going to walk again.

The doctors say
it's a Iong shot,

but I can do it
if I have a reason.

We just need
some hope, Nathan,

that our Iife
can be Iike it was.

What Peter said,

about you checking out
a clinic for him
with a doctor,

tell me that's what happened.

If you say it is,
I'II believe you.

Just give me some hope.

It's true.

Come on.

I'm gonna get
the kids ready for bed.


What the hell happened?

You should just go.

Niki, what's going on here?
Are you okay?

I said that you can go now.

It's me.

I'm just trying to help
you out, girl, okay?

She doesn't need
your help anymore.



So, they're
gonna run Sprague
through decontamination,

then put him in a special
holding tank downtown.

How'd he cause
all that damage
with his bare hands?

How do you hear
what people are thinking?

You did a great job in there.

Well, Iook,
the guy was Iosing his wife.

He just wanted
to talk to her, say goodbye.

You talk to
your own wife yet?

You've been
dodging her call all day.

Well, I'm gonna head downtown,
cover Sprague's processing.



Hey, it's me. I actually
thought you might be
home by now.

I'm calling just to talk.

Look, I had this stupid
idea in my head
that I'm losing you.

And I...

I just...

I can't help but have the
feeling that there's something
you're not telling me.

And I don't
want us to live
with any regret or blame.

I don't know.
I guess I'm just afraid
of things going unsaid.

I Iove you,

and I just wanted
to tell you that. You don't
have to call me back.

I'II see you Iater tonight.

Yes, Mr. Linderman.

It seems my brother
has developed

some sort of emotional
attachment to this painting.

I don't know what will happen
to him if he doesn't get it,
but I'd rather not find out.

Directly to the gallery.

Mr. Linderman,
I appreciate it. Good night.


You need to tell
Heidi the truth.

She doesn't need the truth.
She needs hope.

What's that,
some kind of excuse?

I'm not saying
what I did was right.

That girl in Vegas,
I just needed
to be with someone who

didn't make me feel guilty
every time I Iooked at her.

Did you talk to Linderman?

Yeah. Sit down.


He's not gonna Iet it go.

Hey, come on,
Pete, just Iet it go.
It's just a painting.

It's more than that, Nathan.
This is about what's
going on with us.

AII right?
This painting is the key.

AII right, with this thing,
we could make a difference.

I'm trying to make
a difference, Peter,
the best way I know how.

FIying around, how's that
going to help anybody?

What is that...
I can't... What am I
gonna do when I get there?

I don't have a gun.
I don't have a badge.
I don't know karate.

I guess I could put on
a costume and fly around
and pull cats out of trees.

How's that gonna
make a difference?

You're not gonna
know until you try.

I'm sorry
about the painting.

Listen, something else
happened in Vegas that I...


These two guys,
they tired to pull me
out of my hotel room.

They did.

It was Iike a kidnapping
attempt or something.

How'd you get away?

I flew.

So, who were they?
I mean...

The one who did
all the talking had these
horn-rimmed glasses.

The other guy was
a spooky Euro dude.

He didn't say a word.

Son of a bitch.
You really expect me
to believe that?

Yeah. I'm not Iying to you.


No. Think about it.

What would people do
if they knew what
we were capable of?

They'd Iock us up
and they'd throw away the key.

I know it sounds crazy.

Be careful.


Someone had a good day.
It's all over the station.

FBI bust,
Homeland Security collar.
Congrats, buddy.

Thanks, man.

It really wasn't
anything, though.

It must have been something.

Your FBI girlfriend
just put in a request

for you to retake
the detective's exam

as a series of interviews.

Can't blame it
on the dyslexia this time.

Wait a second. Interviews?
I didn't even know
that was an option.

She's FBI.
She pulled some strings.

And you are going
to pass it, no problem.

Thanks, man.


TOM: Loser.
I'm nailing your wife
and she is so fine. So fine!


Hey, still want
to grab that drink?


MATT: Son of a bitch!

MOHINDER: You do not
choose your destiny.

It chooses you.

And those who knew
you before fate
took you by the hand

cannot understand the depth
of the changes inside.






Hey, baby,
I've been worried. You okay?

Yeah, I'm fine. Are you?

I'm good.

Are you
with your dad right now?

Yeah, I just
got out for one minute.

Mom, is this really you?

Tell me where you are, baby.

Just put my mom on the phone.

Your mom's not
here right now.

And she's not
coming back until
I take care of a few things.

So, why don't you
tell me where you are,

I'II come get you
and bring you home.

Your mom needs you.

I'm in a Iittle motel. It's
right off the Interstate 14.

It's called
the Little Field Motel.

You talking to your mom?


No, I'm just goofing around.

Come on. We've got
some driving to do.

MOHINDER: They cannot fathom
how much you stand
to lose in failure.


That you are
the instrument
of a flawless design,

and all of life
may hang in the balance.

The hero learns quickly
who can comprehend,

and who merely
stands in your way.
