  • Luke will return in this episode - only to be killed by Samson.

  • Nathan will not die, or if he does, he will come back.
  • Nathan will be protected or saved by Claire.
  • Sylar will have an epiphany. He will realise he must continue and move on with his life, probably doing something unexpected or changing in a way no one expected.

  • Sylar will kill someone with illusion.
  • Sylar will kill Noah.
  • "I am Sylar" will be one of Sylar's most famous quotes. He will say it to Noah, perhaps making reference to Sylar never changing, and finally kill him.
    • Such as "I am neither good nor evil, I am Sylar!" or "I am neither a hero or a villian, I am Sylar!"

    • Danko pierces something into the back of Sylar's head to save Nathan for some reason.
  • Sylar will acquire too many identities and become Uluru from Isaac's paintings in season 1.
  • Sylar will learn to concerntrate his rapid cell regeneration and will retrive all of his old abilities including precognition and melting (similar to what Peter did with his memories in Four Months Ago...)

  • Ando will supercharge Peter's ability, allowing him to absorb Sylar's powers, the same way Arthur was able to. Then, without his healing factor, Sylar will be killed.
  • Micah will assume that Sylar is Candice after seeing him shapeshift.
