They agree, and Bennet reveals that he called for the Haitian.
The Haitian, after a cool entrance, meets with Bennet and Matt. Bennet grabs the Haitian and slams him into a wall, telling the Haitian that he knows that he can speak. He demands to know who else knows about Claire - the Haitian claims that only he and Bennet know, but states that it will change. Bennet questions the Haitian's motives for not erasing Claire's mind. The Haitian states that there is someone in Claire's life who is trying to protect her, and outranks him.
As the Haitian and Bennet argue over Claire's fate, Matt reminds them that there is an angry man waiting at the Bennets' household. The Haitian believes that Bennet will soon be unable to keep Claire's ability away from the Company, and Bennet states that they need to keep this contained. Matt says that no-one will be safe, unless they get some answers for Ted.
Matt and Bennet return to the home, without the Haitian, and Bennet offers Ted his file. Matt tries convincing Ted that they can now leave, since they have what they want.

Although Nathan wants both, Linderman states that this cannot be done. Nathan pulls a gun on Linderman, and the mobster offers the politician information. He tells Nathan that he knows about Nathan's ability, Peter's small problem, and even knows about his daughter.

Matt slowly wakes up in his cell, when he hears Bennet's thoughts. Bennet warns Matt that they are waiting for the order to kill Matt and him, and that if he trusts him, he should bang on the pipe. He also thinks that it is lucky that it is a one way conversation, causing Matt to remark how he hates Bennet. Matt grabs his lunch tray, and bangs on the pipe. Bennet smirks.
Nathan examines a painting of Hiro, and tells Linderman that he knows that man. Linderman demands that Nathan tell Hiro to return the sword. They look through the archives, stopping at Isaac's painting of the explosion. Linderman explains that he once worked with an earlier generation of evolved humans who wanted to save the world, and then says that saving one person at a time grew tiresome. Nathan complains about Linderman's plan, saying that it will wipe out half of New York. Linderman says that half of New York is only .07% of the world's population. Nathan grows disgusted with Linderman's plot, when Linderman reveals a painting of Nathan in the White House. Nathan reminds him that Peter is the exploding man, but Linderman calmly replies that everybody has a role to play. Nathan leaves in disgust.

The Haitian breaks into Isaac's apartment and seizes Hiro. Matt follows shortly afterwards, and revels in the fact that they have finally caught Hiro Nakamura. He decides to take the time traveller into the Department of Homeland Security himself, dragging him away.
As the Haitian sits in silence, blocking Hiro's ability, Matt explains Hiro's prison breaks, and the names of his parents. Hiro claims not to be a killer, and Matt reads Hiro's mind, searching for memories. Matt realises that Hiro has no memory of the past five years. He tries again, but finds nothing.
Matt continues punching Hiro, after receiving permission from Nathan, and continually reads his mind. Hiro asks why he wants to hurt other special people, when Matt gets a phone call. He exits the room with Hiro's sword, and tells the Haitian to watch over Hiro.
Matt meets with Mohinder in Isaac's apartment, as Mohinder looks at the string web. Matt asks Mohinder why a terrorist would be interested in changing the past. Mohinder theorises that Hiro can fold time and space, allowing him to time travel. Matt refuses to believe this, when Mohinder finds a date on the string web - October 4, 2006, the day he received his father's ashes. Mohinder frantically explains that Peter saw a man that day who stopped time and delivered a message. As Mohinder leaves, Matt demands to know what the message was.

Soon, Bennet sees his partner, Hana, killed, and Matt grabs Bennet, throwing him onto the table and aiming a gun in his face. Bennet demands to know what is going on, and Matt complains that he failed to capture the second Hiro, and needs to return to the President with something. He searches Bennet's mind for Claire's location, and finds it out. Bennet says a defeated "no", as Matt shows a maniac smile on his face. A gun shot is heard, and Bennet is killed.
Mohinder interrogates Hiro with the Haitian nearby, telling him information regarding the message, and the last issue of 9th Wonders!. Mohinder points out to Hiro that a certain part of the comic has not happened, as Sylar was never stabbed by Hiro. Mohinder realises that Hiro is trying to change history.
Matt walks in on Nathan talking to Mohinder in Isaac's apartment, when he tells the President that there are two Hiros. He requests permission to end the life of the present Hiro. Nathan refuses, and grants the permission to Mohinder instead. Matt then tells Nathan that he found Claire in Midland, Texas.
Mohinder prepares a syringe with the Haitian's inspection, and moves closer to Hiro, who is now growing more and more frightened of the pair. Mohinder apologises, and stabs the Haitian, lethally injecting him with a fatal dosage. The Haitian dies.

However, Bennet says that Claire has a destiny, and Matt accepts this. As they agree to go seperate ways, Sylar hears the entire conversation.
Nathan finds out that he is struggling with the polls, and Linderman laughs, saying that he never listens to polls. Linderman tries exciting Nathan by telling him that he will soon be in Congress, and Nathan states that New York will have to become a wasteland because of it. Linderman tells him that it cannot be changed, and says that Nathan's father would be proud, although Nathan has other ideas. Linderman reveals that Nathan's father was "one of us". Linderman then gives Nathan a gift - he cures Heidi's paralysis. He then leaves the Petrelli mansion.
As Nathan gets in his car after being shouted at by Hiro, D.L. watches onwards, and says that Nathan will never see him coming.

Matt and Bennet enter the Kirby Plaza building and Matt asks Bennet if there is another way of ending the tracking system - Bennet berates him for even thinking this, and says that he only brought Matt along because he can get to the elevators without making a ruckus. Matt makes a joke, and hears about Stanley. Walking over to him, Matt convinces Stanley that they met in a restaurant, and that he knows about Stanley's pornography. Matt and Bennet sneak in, when they stop at the elevator. Matt sees an angry D.L., who decides to search every single floor for Micah, and warns Bennet about them. Bennet convinces D.L. to use his ability to allow them to sneak past all the security doors.
Inside the elevator, D.L. and Bennet stand at the front without saying a word. Matt looks nervous.
Bennet and Matt reach their destination, and Matt wishes good luck to D.L.. They walk through the hallways, when Matt hears Thompson's thoughts. He pulls Bennet back, saving his life.

They walk towards the main door, and they use Thompson's keycard to sneak inside. They find a little girl, and Matt berates Bennet for even thinking of wanting to kill a little girl. Suddenly, Mohinder grabs a fire extinguisher and slams it over Matt's head, knocking him unconscious. Mohinder pulls a gun on Bennet, and Bennet aims his gun at the girl.

Bennet urges Mohinder to convince the girl to use her ability in order to find Sylar. She finds Sylar on Reed Street, which Bennet recognises to be Isaac's loft. Mohinder finds this strange, and asks "Isaac Mendez? The painter?", while Matt has no idea who they are talking about. After calling Claire, Matt reloads his gun and prepares to fight with Sylar. Bennet warns him that they need Petrelli, and Matt says that they do not need Petrelli - he has a gun, he's a cop, and he will not be killed by some punk serial killer. Matt leaves.
Mohinder escapes the facility, when he notices a sleeping D.L. in the corridor. Mohinder decides to help him out, and uses his first aid skills to tend to D.L.'s gun shot wound. Mohinder realises that the elevators have been shut down.
Soon, they are joined by D.L.'s wife and son, and Mohinder hears the guards arriving. They manage to enter the elevator, and escape from the clutches of Linderman's guards.

Mohinder travels to Port-au-Prince, Haiti and enters a hut, where he finds the Haitian having a nap. Mohinder and the Haitian talk in French, and Mohinder explains that he is there to cure the virus. The Haitian says that he does not need curing (possibly because he is invincible), and says that Mohinder should leave. Mohinder claims that his blood will be able to cure any possible symptoms he might have, and give the Haitian the use of his ability. Mohinder then says that he is a godsend.
The Haitian is cured of his virus, and Mohinder tells him that he is glad the cure worked, as it means that the virus could become more widespread after time. Mohinder warns the Haitian that he will bring them into the Company that he works for. The Haitian immediately recognises that Mohinder works for the Company, and erases his memory.

He then hangs up on Mohinder, possibly offending him.
Matt and Mohinder hear screaming, and attend to the little girl. Matt runs off to get a glass of water, and Mohinder follows him. They have a conversation, and Mohinder and Matt both insinuate that they are both less than intelligent to figure out a simple nightmare. Mohinder leaves Matt alone, and sings a lullaby. Matt watches onwards - he has forgotten the glass of water.
Nathan barges in, asking Matt why he is questionning Nathan's mother. Matt reveals to Nathan that he can read minds and knows that Nathan can fly. Nathan clocks on that Matt is reading his mind at that very second. Matt shows Nathan some drawings, and asks him about the symbol and the death threats. Matt also realises that every single character, their abilities, and the plot line are all connected. Nathan and Matt agree to work together.
Matt and Nathan chill out in Peter's apartment, as Nathan searches for a picture. Matt talks about his former wife and his son. Nathan does not care, and shows him the picture of the group of twelve. Matt worries, as his father is on the picture.
Matt tells Mohinder he needs to talk to him - they need to find Matt's father. Mohinder accepts this, and they work together, easily discovering that Matt's father is, in fact, the nightmare man.
Matt insists that they must find the nightmare man, and Mohinder says that it is out of the question. He claims that finding the man would be extremely dangerous, yet Matt states that he has to find out. They have an argument about their respective fathers.
Matt and Mohinder watch over the little girl and Matt insists that they take her to a hospital - Mohinder lies and says that there is no hospital out there to care for the little girl's ills. Mohinder orders Matt to confront his father, and Matt leaves the apartment to question Nathan's mother.
Matt leaves the interrogation, and Nathan berates him for not doing his job properly. Matt tells Nathan that he is doing his job - he is going to Philadelphia, PA to hunt down his father. Nathan says that is going to go as well, and Matt tells Nathan that he can fly him there.
Outside the apartment, Matt and Nathan argue over ethics, and Matt reveals to Nathan part of his history. Nathan tells Matt to get out his gun, and then knocks on the door for Matt because he is too afraid. Matt bursts through the door, and his father points a shotgun at him. Nathan takes cover, and Matt assaults his father in a moment of confusion, disarming him immediately.
Nathan asks why Matt's father was armed, and he shows off a death threat. Matt releases his handcuffs and Maury starts explaining that he felt he was connected to the group of twelve. Nathan weilds the shotgun while listening to Maury's story, when Matt finds out that Maury can read minds. Maury offers to show Matt items, and Matt follows him into the back room - and into a nightmare. Nathan is quick to follow.
Mohinder calls Noah on his cell phone, while Noah and the Haitian chill out in Moscow, Russia. Mohinder tells Noah that he is taking the little girl into the Company for her own good. Noah tells Mohinder that he is wrong - Mohinder believes that he is right, and hangs up.
Nathan and Matt experience nightmares - one is on the rooftop, and the other is in a prison, respectively. Soon, they start fighting each other, just to see who is the better gladiator. Ultimately, Matt figures out that they are in a nightmare, and sends a thought into Nathan's head, blanking out Maury's influence and saving the day.
Mohinder calls Noah once more, who is with the Haitian in Odessa, Ukraine. Mohinder explains that he does not want to spread the virus; Noah says that he has no choice in the matter, and realises that Mohinder has brought the little girl into the Company. Noah says that they have to do bad things.
Noah and the Haitian handcuff Ivan to a chair, and Noah demands to know about the series of eight. Ivan claims that the Haitian cannot get the information from him - the Haitian responds by stealing Ivan's memories of his wedding day. Noah gives Ivan a pop quiz about his wife, and receives no answers. Ivan offers Bennet and the Haitian protection from the Company; both decline the offer.
Noah and the Haitian continue interrogating Ivan, when Noah threatens to have the Haitian remove Ivan's memories of his deceased daughter. Finally, Ivan succumbs to the deadly duo's demands. Unfortunately for him, they do not care whether he lives or dies, and Noah shoots him in the head, killing him off.
Noah and the Haitian take photographs of the series of eight and Noah calls Mohinder, asking him if he has a gun. Noah tells Mohinder that he is going to forward the pictures, but Mohinder stops him, claiming that the Company is watching him in case he does anything out of line. Mohinder hangs up. Noah and the Haitian set fire to the paintings.
Matt, Nathan and Mohinder discuss what their plans should be. Matt and Mohinder realise that they have duties to accomplish - Matt must battle his father, and Mohinder must inject Matt's father with the virus.
D.L. escapes from sight when Mohinder arrives.
Noah watches Nathan fly up into the atmosphere.
Noah calls Mohinder and tells him to find West, and then thanks him for his help.
Mohinder phones Noah afterwards, and tells him that he has found West - he is at the corner of Verbena and Palm, which Noah knows is completely wrong. However, in order to respect Mohinder's attempt to trick Noah, he goes along with it and says that he will be there soon.
Noah arrives at the corner, and Mohinder jumps into his car, ordering him to hand over Claire so that he can take her blood. Noah calls Mohinder "native" and says that he will never get to his daughter. In response, Mohinder pulls out a gun and aims it at Noah's head, asking him to drive.
They stop at a high school and Noah asks who Mohinder's partner is. Seeing Elle appear, he simply stands around and waits, when Elle is taken down by West. Knowing that Elle would fail, Mohinder takes matters into his own hands and points the gun at Noah's head - he dodges the bullet and incapacitates Mohinder, then kicks him in the chest.
Noah and Mohinder stand at either side of a beach as Claire and Elle pass each other to return to their respective parties. Things go haywire, and Claire and West are defeated by Elle, causing Noah to shoot Elle in response. He prepares to kill Bob, when Mohinder steps in and shoots Noah in the eye, ending his life.
Noah returns to life - since death cannot stop him - and sees Mohinder, who has revived him with his superior knowledge. Mohinder tells Noah that they took Claire's blood without his permission. Mohinder explains that he can save someone with Claire's blood, and Noah tells him that the Company made the virus. Mohinder does not care, and leaves the room while Noah is talking, slamming the door shut.
Nathan and Matt demand to know where the virus is stored, and Angela tells them that it is at Odessa, TX in Primatech Paper Co.. Nathan berates Angela during this, and they leave her alone while they deal with the real problem.
Nathan and Matt land outside Primatech Paper Co., ready to deliver unholy justice upon the building. Matt asks if Peter is strong enough to even match Matt's own strength, and Nathan says that he will take care of Peter. Matt tells Nathan about Angela's thoughts, and Nathan berates them, saying that his own ideas are better and more useful. Suddenly, a man shouts "Flying Man!", and Matt asks Nathan who he is.
Matt and Nathan confront Peter about his actions, saying that they are on the right side and he is not. Nathan convinces Peter that he should believe in MAN, and Peter runs off to save the world. Nathan and Matt quickly follow, and they stop the virus vial from shattering.
Matt looks at the items in the vault while Nathan decides that they need to expose the Company for what it is. Matt agrees to help Nathan with his press conference by forcing everybody to listen to Nathan.
Matt uses his telepathy to get everybody to listen to Nathan, and stands next to him during the conference. Nathan gives an amazing speech which wows audiences and is a sell-out, but he is suddenly shot by an unknown assassin. Matt wastes no time and looks out into the crowd, seeing a man walk away.
Bennet and the Haitian abduct some kid in order to conduct tests on him. When the boy tries to escape from their clutches, the Haitian finds him again and wipes his mind clean. Bennet and the Haitian resume to their ordinary lives afterwards.
Bennet and the Haitian, still a powerful combination, knock out Elle and confront Zach in his own home, demanding to know where the tape is. They then erase his memory. The Haitian also erases Elle's memory.
"Two million dollars makes me a candidate in your pocket. Four million makes me a congressman."
"Just you and I, but that will change."
"The Haitian is down! The Haitian is down!"
"Oh, for God's sake."
"Quiet down, you'll wake Molly."
"What are you doing home? I thought you were in Cairo."
"Haiti, actually. My plane got in a couple hours ago. I'll be working here in the city from now on."
"I thought you were in the field."
"They're setting me up in a place downtown, which means that I'll be around to help with Molly!"
"Which means you're gonna be doing your spy work in our own back yard. Great."
"Someone's grouchy when they don't get their sleep."
"Molly's struggling. Nightmares. Problems at school. I can't babysit her and you at the same time!"
"And why would I need babysitting?"
"You're in over your head."
"Thank you. But, I am sure-"
"They abducted me! Kept me prisoner! I know you think you can beat them at their own game, but... Mohinder, no offense - you're a professor, you're not 007!"
"I told myself to do whatever it took to take down the Company - that's how I can help Molly!"
"You wanna help Molly? Don't die on her."
"What the hell is going on?"
"Have they given you a gun?"
"What are you talking about?"
"... A gun."
"You lie to me! Betray me! You come after my daughter! How did you think it was gonna end?"
"Get back here you son of a bitch!"
