Ando shows up and tells the Haitian that the briefcase belongs to him. In Japanese, Hiro tells Ando that Ando was supposed to be the usher, but Ando balks. He insists that the uniform is silly and asks why he can't be "the briefcase guy". Hiro explains that that's not how the plan goes. Instead, Ando says that perhaps Hiro's nemesis is correct and that "this Robin should fly." Hiro reminds Ando that he can't fly because he has no powers. Meanwhile, as Hiro and Ando argue, the Haitian sneaks the briefcase to Daphne. When Hiro notices that she has the briefcase, he excuses himself and Ando up the stairs. The Haitian then jumps over the stairs, grabs the Japanese men, and demands to know where the briefcase is. Hiro tries to stop time, but he is unable to use his ability.

Nathan tells her that he has seen Linderman alive (or not), and that Linderman explained Nathan's "path to the White House and that it was God's will". Angela assures Nathan that God does not exist, and that Nathan is having delusions, just like his father. She offers her help, but Nathan says that if she doesn't know where Peter is, then she can't help.
- Daphne and Matt Argue: As Molly feeds the turtle, Daphne asks her where Peter is. Molly goes to her room to get her atlas. Matt tells Daphne that she is risking her life, even though she has a baby to come home to, and tells her he is worried about her safety. Daphne assures Matt that nothing can touch her, and that she has already caught 1,311 criminals. Matt tells her she is amazing and that it is time to slow down. Just then, Molly returns and announces that Peter is in Costa Verde. Daphne says that once she catches Peter, she will settle down.
- Sylar Can't Save Son: When the Pinehearst team enters his home, Gabriel Gray tells his son to stay put. Gabriel and Peter meet Knox, Daphne, and Claire. Gabriel stops them, and warns Peter not to be afraid or else Knox will get strong. Meanwhile, Noah watches the events, and becomes visibly scared. Knox breaks forward and begins to fight Gabriel as Peter telekinetically holds back Claire and Daphne. Knox punches Gabriel, causes him to bleed, and taunts him to fight back. Gabriel assures his son he is fine, heals his wounds, and tells Knox that he is a different man now. Knox knocks Gabriel back into the table, which hits and kills young Noah. Enraged, Gabriel begins punching Knox hard. Claire notices the radiation coming from Gabriel's hands and pleads for him to be stopped. Gabriel screams and explodes, destroying all of Costa Verde.
- Maya and Suresh Go Out: Maya comes to Mohinder's home with bags and begins to examine what appear to be giant insect scales under a microscope.

- Linderman Appears: In his home, Dr. Zimmerman looks at a photograph of himself, Barbara, the German, and a woman. Suddenly, Linderman appears behind him, and says, "Sweet, sweet, happy families. History always has a way of coming back to haunt you, doesn't it?" Zimmerman insists that Linderman is dead, and asks who he really is. Linderman chastises the doctor for talking too much and for ruining the lives of Niki, Barbara, Tracy, and the "poor, poor children [he] experimented on". Linderman says that the guilt must be terrible and that it never goes away, but says that it can, and places a gun on the table. Zimmerman agrees that yes, it can, picks up the gun, and shoots himself in the head.
- Nathan Tells Tracy about Dr. Zimmerman: Nathan gives Tracy a printout of a picture with the title "German Scientists gathered for Operation Paperclip" and asks if this is Dr. Zimmerman. Nathan explains that they are German scientists who were smuggled into the U.S. after World War II. As part of Project Paperclip, they were assigned covert operations in the 1950s and 1960s. When Nathan tells Tracy that Zimmerman committed suicide, she balks, then gets very upset. She accidentally begins to freeze Nathan, who insists that she must calm down.

- Nathan Must Find the Haitian to Stop His Father: At Primatech Research, Nathan checks trade winds on a map of Haiti.

Micah scoffs and says that they should be helping people stay free, not the other way around. Noah posits that things can't always be viewed in terms of right and wrong, but Micah insists that they can. Noah says Micah sounds just like Claire. Noah poses the question of what would happen if somebody was so bad that it took the question of right and wrong off the table. He asks, "Ever heard the name Sylar?" and Micah reconsiders.

The landlord remembers that Chandra had a "bug up his butt" about something to do with the Army, and that happened around the time Chandra's nightmares began.
