Got your power.

Isn't that interesting?

I know why you can't kill.

Hiro nakamura said you're
going to die alone,

And it's haunting you.

We all need people who understand us.

Care for us. - Who's she?

The love of my life.

- He just shows up.
- And he's stalking you?

- He does seem...
- Obsessed?

I had to act, to protect you,
to get you away from him.

By kidnapping me?

You can never cheat the past.

It's bad, always!

Everything is connected.

If you wanna change one thing,
that's all you do.

I've come back in time to save charlie.

And this time, I will defeat the brain man.

There's something I want you to see.

It's so magical, so beautiful.

Just let me show you, that's all.

If you're still unhappy,

I'll take you right back to california.

Did they really think

That they were gonna get away with it?


That we would just never find out?

We shouldn't have done it.

I need time to grieve
without being reminded why.

Do you wanna talk about it?

About what?

Life among the carnies,
the death of your father--

I mean, either one of those
would be enough to mess me up.

I don't think I'd know where to start.

I just...

Think it's one of those things

I have to figure out by myself.


I'm not gonna pretend to know

What you're going through right now.

But I want you to know
that I'm here for you.

If you need anything. Anything at all.

I have this review lesson thing.

I moved it to bapst hall,
I have no idea where that is.

East quad. Clear across campus.

Of course it is.


[frustrated sigh]

Excuse me. Is this seat taken?

How's it coming?

It's ready.

Now remember,

It'll only work in the hands of one of us.

Luckily, you have hiro and ando now.

You sure I can't change your mind?

I broke a promise to a girl.

I need to make amends.

Well, then I guess this is it.

In our lives, when is it ever?

Thanks, mohinder.

Good luck.

You too, noah.

[door closing]

Well, gentlemen, I guess it's up to us.


[whispering] [clattering utensils]

Hello, carp.

Adam monroe?

But you are dead.

Am I dead?

That's for the judge to decide.

- Judge?
- All rise.

The honorable judge kaito
nakamura presiding.

Be seated.

The world versus hiro nakamura,
your honor.

The what versus what?

Excuse me, is this professor
yanno's review session?

Nope. Study group.

Ready to brainstorm?

What the hell are you doing here?

I came to learn.

How'd you sleep?

The dress is a gift.

If you want to change into something--

A gift?

You kidnapped me, brought me to...


I don't even know where we are
because you won't tell me.

You're right, I'm sorry.

I never meant to upset you.

I'll take you back home. Straight away.

What? What are you smiling about?

Your face. Just now...

It brought me back to when
I broke your record player.

[sighs] samuel...

You had this one song

You played over, and over, and over.

And I was just-- I was just kidding around

But I broke the arm.

- [sighs]
- remember?

Yes. I remember.


'cause there's something
I still want you to see.

The only thing I'm interested in seeing

Is my own front door.

But first, let me get
you something to eat.

And then you'll be rid of
me for good, I promise.

This is how it always starts.

Breakfast becomes lunch,
lunch becomes dinner,

Dinner turns into drinks, and then...

I fixed your record player.

I broke it and then I fixed it.

I know what I've done wrong,
and I know how to make it good.

With scotch tape, and wire hangers,

And loads of good intentions.


Something to eat.

Then you take me home.

Good. Great.

He has a brain tumor.

In the parietal lobe.

The doctors in japan said
it's inoperable, but--

We may not have a choice.

Please, doctor, he's my best friend.

I can't just-- - wait here.

We'll find out what's happening.

Please help him.

It is our intent to prove that
the defendant abused his power

To bend space and time
selfishly and repeatedly

For his own personal gain.

And with a blatant disregard
for the consequences

On the space-time continuum.

This is some bad dream
or tumor hallucination.

Let the record show that the defendant

Fails to recognize the
authority of this court.

This isn't a court, it's a diner.

Perhaps your honor could enter a plea

For the defendant if he refuses?

Mr. Monroe, please
call your first witness.

The prosecution calls kimiko nakamura.

And ando masahashi.

You know how much I
would love to kill you?


I know you must hate me.

You killed my father!


It seems like a lifetime ago.

But I'm a little off my game.

You're gonna help me get it back.

Says who?

Says this.

Your face showing up in
ink wasn't my choice.

It's destiny showing me my desire.

And you actually thought that I would--


They told me I needed connection.

A friend.

I don't want to be alone.

And somehow you're supposed to help me.

I wouldn't help you if
my life depended on it.

It's not your life you
should be concerned about.


Let's get this over with.

You don't have to hurt gretchen.

I promise that you will see her again

Just as soon as you help
me answer my question.

Here is what I've been thinking.

You and me.

We got a lot in common.

We're both adopted...

Abandoned by parents who didn't want us.

And raised by parents who
didn't understand us.

My parents understand me just fine.

Stop lying to yourself.

Both of our dads were cold-blooded killers.

Which is ironic, because you and I...

[writing on chalkboard] cannot be killed.

I get it.

Okay, we have a few
arbitrary things in common.

What is your point?

My point is they're not arbitrary.

They're formative.

The basic building blocks of our lives,

And we have the same blocks.

Yet, here we are...

Content college co-ed,

And me.

How did we end up so different?

You want to know what the difference is?

You're a psychopath.

Mystery solved.


You think this is a game?

This is my life.

You're supposed to help me.

Or don't you care how many
filets I slice your...

Roommate into?

If you're not gonna contribute,

I'll just have to take the
answers from your head.

You're gonna slice my head open again?

I've evolved way beyond that.

My friend lydia gave me a
much more precise instrument.

She could read someone
just by touching them.

See into the very depths of their soul.

Of course, her methods were

A little hyper-erotic, but...

Ah, what the hell.


It is college, isn't it?

The dress suits you.

What's that?

A strawberry milkshake.

Your favorite.


That was a long time ago.

How about this one?

The last time I crashed in your dorm room,

We talked all night.

Among other things.

We talked about your dream home.

That was the tequila talking.

"a peaceful cottage surrounded

By nature and happiness."

You're such a romantic.

Actually, that's something
I've admired about you.

But there comes a time
when you have to realize

That you're never gonna have that cottage.

Says who?

Can you honestly tell me
you don't you look back

At our time together
with a hint of fondness?



What's your prognosis?

Not good.

[indistinct chatter]

[speaking in japanese]

The witness has identified hiro nakamura,

Who's clearly and selfishly
interfered with the timeline.


Just so I'm clear...

On your personal scale of temporal justice,

It's okay, so long as no one gets hurt?


That is my definition.

That's good to know.

Because I believe my next witness is here.

Just tell me where she is.

Claire bennet.

You've been holding out on me.

What are you talking about?

Why I was supposed to find you,

You and I are the same.

I am nothing like you.

You do exactly what I do.

You use this...Gift,

This curse, whatever it is, to build walls.

Make it impossible to actually
connect with another person.

Like gretchen.

God, all those memory
hits I got from your stuff

While I was tying her up...

Have such a different context now.

Everything in that room is so full of...


What did you say?


All these moments so ripe with subtext.

"can I borrow your book?"

"cut my hand with these scissors."

All these interactions,

And you still can't say the one thing

You really want to say to this girl.


You keep this up, you might
end up alone forever too.

You don't know what you're talking about.

I think I do.

The indestructible girl

Who can't put herself out there to get hurt.


What? No angry retort?


[painful moans]

You're right, you are off your game.

You just told me exactly where she is.

[pained screams]

How many people have I killed?

Hundreds, I suppose.

And all of this because of an agreement

You made with the defendant?


He told me if I saved the waitress

I could have the cheerleader,

And anybody else I wanted to kill.

And as long as you saved his girlfriend

You could kill some more.

Willy-nilly. - Willy-nilly.

Seems to me that a lot of people

Were hurt as a result of mr.
Nakamura's time tampering.

Really? Does this look right to you?

Tell me again, who else
met their death by your hand

After hiro made this deal?

Well, there was her.

And eden...Ish.

Two primatech guards.

The melty guy, the mechanic,
isaac mendez, my mother,

Some guy named ted something--ted...

And so on, and so on.

If hiro was acting out of an ability,

Perhaps he should have
stopped this vicious killer

Before these countless murders-- - sprague!

Ted sprague.

So saving charlie wasn't
for the heroic good.

It was for the good of hiro.


Romantic or not, charlie was a good person!

Fair enough.

Then the prosecution would
like to call its final witness.

Charlie andrews.

Oh, that's right.

I've forgotten we can't bring charlie in

Because this worl
d-improving person is lost in time.

Now tell me, how did that happen again?

[quietly] I made a deal with a...

I'm sorry. You'll have to speak up.

I made a deal with a villain,

And he double-crossed me.


Prosecution rests, your honor.

"a shake roof, wraparound porch,

"and a stone path leading to a lake

Where the sun glistens over the water."

How'd you remember all of that?

I have my ways.

I know all the details.

By heart, it would seem.

Hard to forget.

I was holding you close to me,
and the way you painted it,

[contented sigh]

It made it so real,
like it came from your soul.

Like...Like it was you.

You always know the right thing to say.

You have the perfect scrap
of poetry in your pocket to--

To what?



"with a big oak tree in the yard,

Surrounded by wildflowers."

"and a couple of rocking
chairs on the deck

To watch the sun set."

You do remember.

"with a fireplace to keep us warm."

"and a summer breeze to keep us cool."

How do you do it?



This is so beautiful.

How did you do it?

My friends and I can do
the most amazing things.

Look. There's your dream cottage.

No more traveling now.

We'll make it a home. A real home.

For me, for you. If you'll have me.


You said you couldn't join a carnival.

And now you don't have to.

There's no more carriage homes,
no more main homes,

Just...Just that.

Away from everything.

It's what you talked about.

It could be our life.

I can't live here.

But you said--

I know, I know, I know,
I know what I said.

It's just...

It's just, I didn't think you'd actually--

- Actually do it?
- Yeah.

But...I mean...

This dress, and the milkshake, and...

All of this, this is a fantasy.

And I made it come true.

For you.

No, sam.

For you.

This is your fantasy.

And it's-- it's beautiful.

And I'm happy for you.

But it isn't me.

My life isn't here.

But I changed everything for--

No, don't tell me you did all this for me.

Please, don't--

Don't tell me this was all for me.


No, of course not.

Listen, um, I should get you back home.

Thank you for indulging me.

No, sam.

No, it was really--

It was really nice to see you again.




Are you okay?

I'm fine. All things considered.

I'm so sorry, this is all my fault.

You never should've gotten caught up in it.

I'm just-- I'm happy you're here.

And that it's over.

It is over, isn't it?

No. He's not done--

[glass shattering]

Somewhere out in the open?

No, he'll be expecting that,
he's trying to flush us out.

How do you know?


'cause apparently I get the way he thinks.

- Someone's coming!
- In here.

i>- So sylar, huh? The sylar?

Yes. Well, no.

Kind of the emo-apologist version.

He's had me trying to figure
out what his issues are.


How'd that go?

Pencil in the eye.

Listen, I'm sorry.

It's okay.

Getting used to being all perils of

No, not about that. Well, yes, about that.


About breakfast.

About sometimes keeping you at arm's length.

It's cool. Are you kidding?

If you don't want to-- - I do want to.

I just--I'm scared.

And I get afraid that I'm gonna get hurt,

And so I use my specialness
to build these walls,

Instead of, you know, jumping off bridges.

I suck at metaphors,
but what I'm trying to say

Is that-- - it's okay, really.

No. No, it's not.

This guy, sylar, he sat there and told me

That we're very much alike,
and he's not wrong.

And I'm afraid that I'm gonna end up alone

For the rest of my life like him.

And I don't know how to fix it.

Do you want to talk about it?

I like to think of myself as

Just a girl who happens to have powers.

And it's just one thing
in a list of attributes--

Loyal, friendly, regenerative,
good skin, you know?

- You do have good skin.
- [scoffs]

But when you put the chips
down and life gets tough,

I hide behind that one label,
that one attribute.

And I close myself off.

Man, no wonder sylar's so messed up.

I can only imagine what
having a bunch of excuses

Could do to someone's humanity.

Maybe that's his answer.

In order to become human again,

He has to get rid of all of his powers.

Yeah, maybe.

Now was that so hard?

You son of a bitch.

Where is she?

It's dinnertime.

I imagine she's right where you left her.

You never took her?

Like I said,

I've been having a little
trouble being myself.




You're okay!

- Yeah!
- [sighs]

Of course I'm okay.

Well, some guy stole my backpack,

But what's with you?

Nothing, I'm fine. And then you're here.

And you're all right. - Claire.

You're acting really weird. - I'm sorry.

I'm really lucky to have you.

And I'm sorry about this morning.

Forget it.

You know me, impulsive gretchen wants to

Hold hands so she does it.

I know. And I love that about you.

And I wanna be more like that,
and not be beholden to

Any label, or definition,
or who I'm supposed to be.

I just--

I wanna hold your hand.

People are gonna start to talk.

Let them talk.

Talking's good.

In fact, I could use some talking

If you still have a sympathetic ear.

I, in fact, have two ears.

Come on.

[papers rustling]

Objection, your honor!

He's reciting the opening to quantum

[echoing] we need to shock him.

Give him 200 joules.



No response.

- 240.
- Bring it up.

Charging. Clear!

Still nothing. Start compression.

We're losing him.

Still no pulse, we're losing him.

Let's shock him again.

Charging. Clear.

Not so fast, carp.




We got a pulse.

He's coming back.

He's rising.

[soft ballad music]

¶ ¶

Is something wrong, sir?

Yes, something is wrong.


Am I scaring you?

[laughs nervously]

Do I look scary?

Sir, I just wanted to know if--

You don't think I can see how
you're looking at me right now?

That I'm different?

Looking down your nose at me?

Like I'm not good enough! - [whimpers]

I'm done trying to change myself for you,

Trying to fit into your world,

Play by your rules.

From now on, you're gonna play by mine.




[soft music]

¶ ¶


[quiet whispers]

[doorbell rings] [baby gurgles]

Just a minute!

[humming softly]

Can I help you?

Hey. Hey, buddy.

How are you?

I'm sorry, I'm gabriel.

A friend of matt's, 12th precinct.

Oh, I'm sorry, he's not here right now.

Oh, um...

Is there any way that you
could tell me where he is?

It's really important that I speak with him.


I'm sorry, have we met?
