Project Reborn

  • As the first solar flare of the H.E.L.E. approaches, Luke Collins decides to sacrifice himself to stop it to buy Malina the time she needs to meet up with her brother and save the world. Luke flies himself into the flare and detonates himself, harmlessly dissipating the flare and saving North America.

  • In 9972, Ren Shimosawa and Emily Duval rescue several trapped evos including Hachiro Otomo and the real Miko Otomo.
  • To rescue Tommy Clark, Ren agrees to enter the dying Evernow to save him. With the help of the Miko construct, Ren rescues Tommy from the Eternal Fortress.
  • Tommy stops time and splits himself in two so he can save both the people in the future and stop the H.E.L.E. The Tommy that remains in the future teleports everyone in the Gateway control room back to the present then uses the space-time bridge to send everyone else back, purposefully leaving Erica Kravid behind.
  • Aided by Tommy, Malina attempts to stop the H.E.L.E. but the two are unable to control their combined power. Tommy tries "a thousand times" to stop the H.E.L.E. with Malina but is unable to.
  • After traveling back in time seven years and learning he and Malina need a conduit for their powers, Tommy goes back in time two days and saves Noah Bennet's life.
  • Noah, learning that Tommy and Malina need a conduit for their powers which will be fatal to their conduit, agrees to help them even though it will cost his own life.
  • Tommy transports himself and Noah back to the Odessa Clock Tower where Noah stands as Tommy and Malina's conduit. With Tommy boosting Malina's power and Noah channeling it, the three are able to stop the second solar flare of the H.E.L.E. and save the world at the cost of Noah's life.
