Nathan pulls into a parking garage at night and looks at his phone. He calls the homicide division, but is put on hold. Then he hangs up, and gets out of the car, when a guy jabs him in the neck with a syringe full of something that knocks him out immediately. We get this week's edition of the Heroes short stories commercial about the carnies, which consists of Samuel talking to Edgar about how he and Lydia are free to make their own mistakes, then Lydia using a cell phone to call her daughter. I think it's actually a segue into the Sprint commercial that follows, but whatever. I don't know if it's better or worse than product placement, except that I can skip it like a regular commercial, so I guess I'll vote "better."
Carnival. Lydia finds Edgar playing with his knives and asks him what's the matter. He ignores her, so she wonders if he's thinking about the new people Samuel's bringing into the family. Edgar wonders if Samuel would be bringing them in if Joseph were alive, and Lydia doesn't know, but she says Joseph was his brother and he has a right to his revenge. Edgar: "No matter what it means to the rest of us?" Samuel comes out from the rock he's been hiding behind and says he'll tell them what it means: He's the one who's left to make all the decisions for this family. He's the one who decides which direction they travel. So, apparently, it's a traveling carnival? Lydia says they were just talking, is all. Then Samuel asks her to come with him, because it's time to find another. They walk off and Edgar throws one of his knives into a sign that says "Sullivan Bros. Carnival."
