Samuel's mixing up a batch of his ink for Lydia. I have to admit that the only pop-culture reference I could think of for Lydia being the tattoo lady was Lydia from the most recent season of Big Brother. And I really hoped Heroes hadn't stooped to using that show as inspiration. Then I saw someone mention "Lydia the Tattooed Lady" in the forums, and I must say that a Groucho Marx reference is slightly higher-brow than Big Brother. Apparently I'm quite dumber than this show, even. How very sad for me. Anyway, as he mixes his ink, Samuel tells Lydia that she should know she can tell him anything. She says, "Of course." He says she can tell him if anyone says they're dissatisfied with him, or if she is. She says she's not, and he says that's good. He puts his pen on her back, and a picture of HRG appears. Samuel wonders what she's doing, why she's showing him to her. She says she shows him what he needs to see, and he wonders why he'd need to see Bennett, since he retired and is no longer interested in them. Wait, how does Samuel know about Bennett, when we've never heard anything about the weird carnies before now? Lydia says Bennett may have changed his mind. Samuel looks thoughtful, and then we flash to Bennett, who's making a wall of photos and articles referencing the carnies. He looks like he's out to get someone, so the carnies had better watch out.
Mama Petrelli's at dinner with Millie, who tells her that Nathan seemed very confused and wanted to share his side of the story. Mama Petrelli says Nathan's always been overly theatrical, which is probably what drew him to politics. She wonders what exactly Nathan said, and Millie tells her she feels silly telling her this, but he said that Kelly was dead, that he was with her when he died. We hear her voice finish talking as we see a car pull up in the dark woods. She says she told Nathan no, and then we see that Nathan's knocked out in the back of said car. Angela apologizes that Nathan bothered Millie with this. Millie says she's always cared for Nathan, and the two women touch hands across the table. Mama Petrelli says he just hasn't been himself lately. She apologizes for his behavior, and says no one should go through that pain twice. Millie says, honestly, she's over it, and the kidnapper throws Nathan into a hole in the ground and shoots him. Millie's phone rings and she asks Angela to excuse her, but she has to get this. It's our shooter in the woods, telling Millie, "The package is delivered." She sweetly says that's wonderful and thanks him so much. Angela asks if it was something important, and Millie says not at all. She asks where they were, and Angela reminds her: "closure." Millie: "Of course. To closure." The car backs out of the woods, and then a hand comes up from the ground, a la Carrie. It's Sylar, but not even Sylar-as-Nathan. That's Zachary Quinto. Does this mean Adrian Pasdar is no more? But what about the pretty? Clocks tick, and "To be continued..."
