This article archives the history of Thomas Millward during Season One. For more about Thomas Millward, see the main article.
Tom sits in the common room of the school when Nick rushes up and attempts to explain what happened to him. Nick shows him a comic book about Hiro and his adventures in New York, pointing out the release date in particular. Tom tells him to prove his ability, and soon appears in the corridor, as Nick stopped time and pushed him outside. Tom, now completely believing in Nick's ability, agrees to help Nick in his quest to save the world and stop the explosion on November 8th. Nick grabs Tom and teleports him to Manchester Airport.
On the plane, Tom asks Nick how they will be able to stop the explosion. Nick aims to stop the man from detonating, whether by peaceful means or by force. Nick reads over 9th Wonders! again, and looks carefully at Isaac Mendez's information. He suggests visiting the artist, which Tom agrees on.
The plane lands in Las Vegas, NV, and they try to enter the nearest building in order to remove content from their bladders. They find the Montecito Casino, but are unallowed to enter (as they are too young). As they sit down, two Japanese men walk past them. Nick suggests travelling to New York again, when he receives a call from Andy. Andy tells him that he has to return to school soon, and that his family is getting worried. Nick asks him to state that he is not returning until he has saved the world. He puts the phone down, and the duo start walking down a long road.
As they are walking, Tom begins getting annoyed, talking about his aching legs. They decide to stop off at the Fly By Night Diner. They sit down, when they look out the window and see a man land after flying through the sky. He enters the Diner, and sits down at the counter. As Nick is about to stand, the Japanese man moves to him instead. Nick, starting to get annoyed, realises that the man is none other than Hiro Nakamura, the star of 9th Wonders!. He gives up, and decides to return home, since Hiro is beating him to everything. Tom states that he should not give up hope, and suggests starting at a different location. They leave the Diner, and continue their journey. As they are stood outside, Hiro and the man get into a car and drive away, angering Nick.
Nick and Tom continue walking, when they realise they do not know where they are going. They resort to hitchhiking, receiving a lift from a woman. They are dropped off in New York, where they start searching for Isaac. They reach his door and knock, but there is no answer. As they wait outside, a man leaves the apartment.
Nick and Tom enter afterwards, showing Isaac the copy of 9th Wonders!. He comments that it is not out yet, and Nick explains about the explosion. Isaac reveals that he can paint the future. Although Tom and Nick find no interesting painting that could help them out in show, Nick looks through a sketchbook, and finds a picture of himself stood on a helicopter pad. He asks Isaac about it, and he states he sketched it two weeks ago, and that it means nothing. Nick, while accepting it to Isaac, rips out the page and takes it with him. Tom looks at the Homecoming paintings, and comments about the missing painting. Nick and Tom leave with their new information, as they begin searching for Kirby Plaza.
As they wander through the streets of New York once more, they enter a building to ask for directions. They meet with a woman, but she is in too much hysterics to tell them where Kirby Plaza is. She asks for help getting to another location, and Nick and Tom decide to help out. They hail a cab, and the three end up at Peter's apartment. Nick and Tom wave goodbye, and try to continue their journey. At that moment, a man appears, telling him that his name is "Mr. Thompson", and he wants to help. He takes them to the Kirby Plaza building, where they are subdued and driven away to Odessa, Texas.
Tom is sat in his cell when Nick finds him and breaks him free. Guards suddenly charge down the corridor, but Nick grabs Tom, and they teleport out of the company, and into the streets. They decide to continue running, and end up laying low in the Burnt Toast Diner. However, they find several people crowded around one area, talking about a death. He sees Hiro and Ando, but sits at a different table. Tom looks around the Diner, and notices that Hiro has suddenly disappeared. After Sheriff Davidson asks the two about Charlie, he leaves, and Nick contemplates travelling back in time. He ends up deciding against it, although they choose to remain in the Burnt Toast Diner for now.
