Tell me where I can find
the virus so I can stop it.

Primatech paper,



I was there when your
father first brought you in,

And then they started the testing.

My father would
never let that happen.

We need to be heroes, like dad.

Being a hero is what
got your father killed.

You're gonna help me
get back my dad's medal?

As long as you stay out of the way.

Anything crazy happens,
I need you safe.

I'm taking my sister!


I just wanna help you.

You have done that,
and so much more.

Why am I not dead?

You would have been,if not for an
infusion of your daughter's blood.

Your recovery has proven this blood
has tremendous regenerative properties.

Kidnapped me and
murdered my father.

I'll show everyone
exactly what I can do.

Once the secret's out,you won't
be able to touch me or my family.

I think I found the cure,Niki.

I'll bring it to you on the next flight.

- Mohinder.
- Sylar?

I convinced the babysitter
to take the night off.

Welcome home, Dr. Suresh.

What happened to your nose?

Where's Molly?


Keep your voice down.

We don't wanna wake her.

What is it you want?


I hope you don't mind.

Maya cooked.

She makes the
most amazing Chilaquiles.

It's such an honor to meet you.

He's the one that should be honored.

Maya came all the way from
South America just to be here,Mohinder.


Why's that?

I read your father's book.

He has so many answers.

But I have so many more questions.



I'm starving.

When Gabriel told me
you two knew each other,

I knew fate brought us together.


You mean Sylar,
don't you?

You do know this man's a killer.

Yes. He told me.

He did?

And I am ashamed to admit that...

I have taken lives as well.

I have this sickness
that comes out of me.

It poisons everyone around.

I need your help, Dr. Suresh.

So that's what this is about.

We both need your help.

Why's that?

I was reading about your lab work
on the laptop- The Shanti virus.

Does it really take away
a person's abilities?

It also has the unfortunate side
effect of killing the person infected.

Is that why your powers are gone?

That you have this virus?


What are you doing?

Maya,I need
you to stay calm.

Apparently, Mohinder,your
blood is the answer to my ills.

No. No,not always.

Trust me,there are many
different strains of the virus.

But when you mix it with a certain
cheerleader's blood,it changes,doesn't it?

And it heals anything.
Isn't that right,doctor?

You lied to me?

I don't know what he told
you,but he is not my friend.

- He's a monster.
- Maya?

Do not spoil this!

My brother was right not to trust you.

Do you really wanna kill Dr. Suresh,
the one man who can save you?


And she dies...

A sweet,innocent little girl.

Stop it, Maya!


All right.

I'll help you,
but not here.

We need to get to my lab.

Lead the way... Doctor.

Chapter Eleven

I suppose I have you to thank
for my early release from jail.

-You didn't kill anyone, mom.
-But Adam Monroe did. Again.

Victoria Pratt is dead.

I found her body at
her place in Maine.

Adam signed it
with one of these.

Where's Adam going next?

How long are we gonna
suffer for your sins?

For your generation's deeds?

Adam wanted revenge on
those of us who betrayed him.

It's done now.

Let it go, Nathan.

It's over.

Peter's alive.


And he's working with Adam.

They both killed
Victoria Pratt.

Their fingerprints are
all over the murder scene.

It all went so wrong.

30 years ago,a group of us came
together to change the world,to fix it.

And Adam...

Had a perspective on history that
was compelling,and we believed in him.

I did.

Linderman. Your father.

Bob said you locked him away.

No. Not at first.

In the beginning,
I helped him.

You what?

And in the end, Adam decided that
the world just wasn't worth fixing,

And that it needed to be wiped
clean with an unstoppable virus.

Just before it was too late I,um...

I came to realize how wrong it was.

Did you?

You and Linderman wanted to blow
up New York to save the world.

Doesn't sound to me like
you've changed much at all,ma.

Only someone with Peter's abilities
could get to where the virus is stored.

That's why Adam chose him.

Where would that be,Mrs. Petrelli?

Odessa. Texas.


Adam will never quit.

One bullet right through his head.

It's the only way.

Come on.

If you can't stop Peter,if
you can't stop Peter,

You'll have to kill him too.

Right through the head.

This doesn't look
like the sort of place

Where they'd store a virus
that could destroy the world.

Paper company's just a front.

The good stuff's three floors down.

Laboratories,jail cells...


Peter Petrelli?

What are you doing here?

Adam Monroe killed my father.

And for that,
he must pay.


I can't let you hurt him.

Why are you protecting him?

Adam is my friend.

He was my friend too.

400 years ago.

He betrayed me.

He will betray you.


He saved my brother's life.

He murdered my father.

Your father had him
locked away for 30 years.

I know.

I was in that same prison.


I went into the future.

There's a virus.

It kills almost everyone.

And it starts here.


Adam and I are gonna stop it.


He froze time.

Said he knew you.

We were friends once.

A very long time ago.

He tried to kill you.

He said I shouldn't trust you.

And what did you think about that?

Let's go destroy the virus.


I believe this is mine, Carp.

Dad left records of pretty much
everything he did for the company.

You are really
going through with this.

They killed dad. They're
never gonna leave us alone.

You do realize what'll happen to us
if you tell everyone what you can do.


No more running. No more
hiding. No more secrets.

Your father couldn't take
down this company,Claire.

What makes you think you can?

I don't know if you
can understand it.

They only target people with abilities.

People like me.

You are still my daughter,Claire.

I dream about you going to
college,getting married someday.

What if they take you from me...

Use you in some lab experiment?

I love you,mom.

But I can't live in fear
of some big "What if?"

Do you realize how much damage
you've done by provoking Claire?

I couldn't help it.

She was just so... weepy
and earnest and...

Who knew she'd turn whistle-blower?

It's totally unprofessional,
not to mention petty.

And Claire is not
even in your league!

She isn't working
with a gunshot wound.

You and I both know you have
performed well below what you can do.

You're benched.

No more field assignments.

How's about if I said I was sorry?

When I think about all the hard
work I put into raising you...


You said you knew
all about my ability.

Tell me what my dad did to me.

I'm stuck in this hell-hole.

My family thinks I'm dead.

There's not a lot of
incentive to share.

I could make you tell me.

You could try.


I don't have anyone else to talk to.

They wanted to see how much
wattage you could discharge.

Enough to power a flashlight,
street lamp,an entire city block?

During testing,you'd
pass out from the strain.

We'd all want to call
it a day,but daddy said,

"No,my girl's tougher than that."

You were seven.

You know,the hardest
thing a parent ever does

is to have to see
their child in pain.

Most parents.


What are you doing here?


Noah,we have a problem.

I'm not part of your "We. "

Do you remember?

This is about Claire.

She's becoming difficult.

Is she?

I need to know if she could
possibly have any hard evidence

Which could leave
this company exposed.

That's unfortunate.

Because now we're going to have to take
measures to keep your daughter quiet.

- Mom! - Micah!
Where have you been?

I've been looking everywhere for you.

Monica tried to get my
stuff back that was stolen.

Dad's medal,my comics.

I told you to let the police handle it.

She got caught.

I'm calling the police.

You can call them after we find her.

She was taken in a red van.

We have to rescue her.

- With your super strength-
- Micah,stop.

I don't have my strength anymore.


The virus-
It has side effects.

But it's okay. I got
a call from Dr. Suresh.

He maybe found a cure.

He's on his way
here to make me better.

I hope so.

But right now,
Monica needs my help.

So all you have to do is drive.

Warning. Security breach.

Unauthorized personnel in the area.

I believe it's up to the left.

It's been 30 years.

Warning security breach.

- Unauthorized personnel in the area.
- Take care of that,will you?

So what do we do now?

I guess you'll have to pry it
open with that brain of yours.

I'm not sure I have that sort of power.

There's not much at stake here-
Just the fate of the entire human race.

Did you kill Hiro's father?

I did.

He saw to it that the
virus be safely kept here.

If he didn't plan to use
it,why not destroy it?

Why don't you make
me believe you,Adam.

Hiro said not to trust you.

The woman you love
is trapped in some

horrible future where
nearly everyone's dead.

You can change that.

She needs you,Peter.

We all need you...
to open that door.

Hey you're nothing
like you said you were.

Alejandro was right
about you all along.

You wanna get rid of your
powers,I want mine back.

After Suresh fixes me,I'll
gladly take yours off your hands.

There's a bed over there.

Stay put.

Stay calm.

And remember...


It'll be okay,
Molly,I promise.

So this is your... laboratory,huh?

I killed that artist,Isaac Mendez,
right on this very spot.

I'm going to have to take
a sample of your blood.


You self-diagnosed.

I need to know what strain
of the virus you have.

Or if you even have it at all.

Just give me the remedy.

Doesn't work like that.

The wrong dosage will kill you.

Your father helped me find my gift.

Now here you are restoring it.

Life has its poetry,doesn't it?

My father who you murdered.

Your father who betrayed me.

Don't make that
same mistake,Mohinder.

Does Suresh know you have
him on video surveillance?


Oh,daddy,you're gonna
be so proud of me.

Where am I?

That doesn't matter.

Both you and it are about
to get country fried.

Please,let me go!

I swear,I was only
trying to help somebody!

You should've thought about that before
you started messing up my business.

So you thought you was
gonna be a hero,huh?

You know what happens to
heroes in the real world?

They end up dead...

Just like you.

Turn left here.

Explain to me how that works.

Monica has a cell phone,and the
battery emits a tiny GPS signal

Which I can use to try
and get her position.

Basically,I told your cell phone to find
her cell phone and show me where it is.

You told the phone.


Don't slow down.
The light will change.

Let me guess.

You told it to?

Slow down,slow down,slow down!


We don't talk about that ever again.


Look,before we go in,I
need to know something.

Is Peter as dangerous
as he was in Kirby Plaza?

You know,with
the whole-Puhh!

I haven't seen him since that night,but
I trust him with my life,Parkman.

Yeah,but your mother...

Your mother told me that if I
had to, that I should kill Peter.

Listening to my mother has
never led to anything good.

If Peter becomes a
problem,I'll handle him.

Flying man!

Who's this guy supposed to be?

Oh,good,you're here.

Uh,so these two boxes are done.

They can go in the car.

I didn't come to
help you,Claire.

I came to stop you.

These people ruined my life.

- Your life.
- No.

They didn't.

But what you're about to do-
I'm pretty sure that will.

West,you're the one who
said that we were special,

That the rules didn't apply to us.

I think you misunderstood me.

If we show everyone what we
can do,they'll listen to us.

I can't.

I like my secrets.

And I liked finding in you, someone
who I could share that with.

But after you go public,it's all gone.

You saw what they
did to my dad.

This is the only way to beat them.

Exposing us, isn't
going to bring him back.


Here's your file.

It's everything they have on you.

Now there isn't an "Us"
for you to be worried about.

Claire,please,don't do this.

You won't leave me,
will you,Mr. Muggles?

Hello, Claire-Bear.

I wish Alejandro
was here to help.

Who's that?

He's my brother.

I sent him away.

Gabriel said-

I can find him for you.

Even if he is far away.

So you know he's safe.

You can?


I just know where people are.

I need a picture or
something to think about.

This is Alejandro.


He's not anywhere.


If he's not anywhere...

-How? -You have the same
strain of the virus Niki has.

The company injected you as well.

Injected me?

Someone did this to me?

You killed him?

You killed my brother!

Now look what you made me do.

Where is the
"Heal anything" blood?


You had it here all along?

You and I have
trust issues,Doctor.

Give it to her first.

Let me see you save
her. Then if it works...

I'll let you save me.

It was a lie?

Another lie?

No,please,you have to understand.

None of this was my decision.

But I saw you get shot.

I saw it!

It's because of you.

They injected me with your blood.

You healed me.

I- I don't get it.

And we're just supposed to
pretend you weren't dead?

This is an impossible situation
and it's just getting worse,Claire.

You have to stop.

Stop what?

Your plans to expose the company.

It's unacceptable.

If we destroy them,we get
our lives back,you back.

No,if you push this,they will react.


No,it-It's not
gonna come to that.

I've made a deal that's
gonna keep you all alive.

What deal?

I have to go back with them.

And you all will live normal lives.

That's all I've ever wanted for you.

You can't. Please.

You were right,Claire,when
you said it was all my fault.


I never meant to hurt you.

It's done.

Go. Get the virus.

I must stop you,Kensei.

He's going to keep at it,Peter,unless
you do something about it.

Let Hiro go.

Go after Adam.

He's using you,Peter.

Let Hiro go.

Go after Adam.

Go after Adam.
He's evil.

I don't think so.

He wants to destroy the whole world.

You're wrong.

Adam wouldn't do that.

He's going to release he virus.

He wants to destroy the virus.

Don't you understand?

You're on the wrong side!

What about me,Pete?


Am I on the wrong side too?


You were more than a friend to me.

You were my inspiration.

I was a rudderless drunk,and then you
came along,you taught me to be a hero.

I went to the company.

I saw Adam's history.

Who he is and what he wanted.

Pete... he tried to release the virus.

Do you wanna know how your
burns got healed,Nathan?

He gave you his blood.

I was there.

You should be grateful.

He used me.

Wars,famine... disease.

400 years later,nothing has changed.

When god wasn't happy
with what he'd created,he

made it rain for
40 days and 40 nights.

He just washed it all away.

He had the right idea.

Because when this virus is released

Those of us who are left will
be granted a second chance.

And I'll be their hero.

He used me to get to you.

Don't you see it?

He tried to manipulate you like that.

- Nathan,he- - Peter,that night at
Kirby Plaza when I carried you away,

It's because I believe in you.

You're my brother,Pete.

I love you.


I've lived for over 400 years.

Can you really trust Adam?

Is that it?

Where'd those guys go?

They're gone.

What is all this stuff?

I saw what this could do.

I almost-

Peter, you're not responsible for
something that might have happened.

You came here to destroy the virus.

Now, finish the job.

Step back.

What the hell's going on?

Your mother
and my father-

God knows what else they've done.

How much longer are we gonna
have to clean up their mess?

Matt, you're right.

You're right.

We've been used by these
people, manipulated.

But it's over.

It stops here.

No more secrets.

So what do you wanna do?

We take this all public.

We expose them for what they are,

What they've done,

That they're the enemy.

I wanna have a press conference.

Matt, I need your help.

Make sure everybody listens to me.

That's it?
Just a simple injection?

I'm sure Maya will understand if
I'm not here when she wakes up.



The blood!

Oh, my god.


Mom, we're almost there.

Girl, what you doing?

Gimme that phone!

I didn't call nobody!

I swear!

I swear I didn't call anybody!

Look at that,
look at that.

Look what you did, huh?



Who you think's gonna rescue you?

No, don't leave me here!

No, don't leave me here, please!

Please don't leave me here!


It's right around here.

The van!

That's the guy
who took Monica!

Hold on.

You crazy bitch!

What's wrong with you?

Where's Monica?

Go to hell.

Mom, the building!

She's in there!

Micah, stay in the
car and call 911!



I'm here! I'm here!

Help me!

How'd you find me?


Oh, I love that kid.

You okay?

Niki, look out!

When I lift that beam,
you pull the door open.


Go, I'm right behind you.


You're all right!


C'mon, run!



Let me out!



Let me out!



I thought...

I was dead.

You very nearly were.

Sylar's gone.

My dad's gonna kill me.

I doubt that very much.

If you hadn't arrived, Sylar
would have slaughtered us all.

We owe you our lives.



Sure you're all right with this?

Yeah, I just keep thinking
if I hadn't listened to Adam.

If i hadn't listened to Linderman.

You tried to do the right thing.

You always do.

You trusted that people
are as good as you are.

But if you see yourself
as a monster, Pete,

This guilt is just
gonna eat you up inside.

Believe me, I know.


Just really missed you.

I missed you too.

Okay, I did it.

They're ready for you.

They'll definitely hear
what you have to say.

Good afternoon.

Most of you have no idea who I am.

My name is Nathan Petrelli,

And I was elected to Congress
in the State of New York.

Seems like a long time ago.

I lost my position.

I lost my brother.

I lost my family.

I'm sad to say that I lost my way.

But while I was gone, I had the chance to
see the world through newly-humbled eyes.

Witnessed amazing things.

I've seen ordinary people among us,
trying their best each day to be heroes.

These ordinary people...

Like you.

Like me.

Are capable of extraordinary things.

You have no idea...

How extraordinary.

But there are other
people, organizations,

Who don't want you to know the truth.

I, myself, kept secrets.

But last year...

Something incredible
happened to me.

And it changed my life.

At first, I was afraid.

But I'm- I'm not
afraid anymore.

I'm here to tell you the truth.

I have the

In Odessa, Texas,

Where the former New York
Congressman elect Nathan Petrelli

was shot
by an unknown assassin.


I know.

It was unavoidable.

You do know that you've
now opened Pandora's box.



I'm back.
