By 2029, Tommy has changed his name to "Matthew" to reflect his knowledge of his true parentage. Though he respects Tom McHenry for raising him, he is disenchanted with Tom's denial that Matthew is his real son. Matthew has moved in with his father and stepmother and has a very close relationship with his half-sister. He briefly speaks with Savannah Lemay as she moves in with her own father.
Matthew, as a child, originally appeared to have lie detection or telepathy, like his father and grandfather. However, it is later revealed that his ability is to activate electronic and biological mechanisms. He does this by turning on Savannah's phone.
- Though Matthew is originally assumed to be the child of Tom McHenry, his true parentage was implied earlier in the casting of Greg Grunberg's youngest son, Sam.
