Project Reborn

While in the Eternal Fortress, Tommy Clark views part of his erased memory of what had happened to him seven years before on Level 5. Tommy witnesses Angela Petrelli testing his and his sister's ability to combine powers before something goes wrong and then an energy bolt shoots up into the sky before the memory ends.

Needing to know what happened and how to safely combine his and Malina's powers to stop the H.E.L.E., Tommy teleports outside of his old cell seven years in the past and watches as the test happens. Tommy witnesses the fact that he and Malina are unable to safely combine their powers before a lab worker pulls them apart resulting in the energy channeling through their body and into the sky. Angela realizes that Tommy and Malina need a conduit for their powers to work and Tommy teleports away, having gotten the answers he needed.

Tommy rescues Noah Bennet from death two days before the present and takes him back to Level 5 seven years in the past. Noah watches the experiment and how Angela then explains that in her dreams there was a third faceless figure with the twins which she now knows is their conduit, someone willing to sacrifice themselves so Tommy and Malina can save the world. Rene asks Angela who the conduit will be and Angela seems to look straight through the window at Noah as she tells Rene she's sure she knows who it is. Tommy teleports in and explains that after failing to stop the H.E.L.E. with Malina "a thousand times", he realized that Noah was the key to stopping it and needed him to see the test to understand what Tommy needs him to do. Noah agrees to be Tommy and Malina's conduit and has Tommy teleport them back to the Odessa Clock Tower in Gateway where Malina is struggling to hold back the H.E.L.E.
