Parkman's. He tells Peter to remember that Sylar killed his brother, and Peter's like, "He repented!" Parkman's a little skeptical that all happened during a nightmare that lasted all of a couple hours. Peter says it was five years to them, and they have to stop Samuel. Sylar tells Parkman that he doesn't expect him to understand the nightmare or to forgive him. Parkman: "Good, because that'll never happen." SHUT UP, Parkman! Sylar says he's done so much wrong to so many people and would just like a chance to redeem himself. He asks Parkman to go inside his head and make the call as to whether he's a good enough person to go. He goes inside as we get a close-up of a blank-faced Zachary Quinto. Sylar: "You see it? Right here." But Parkman says that was in Sylar's twisted mind, not his heart. Sylar asks for a chance to prove it, and Peter asks him to trust them. Parkman says fine, and tells them to get the hell out of his home. They leave, and then Parkman ominously goes inside Replicator Eli's head and says, "Now you are going to do exactly what I tell you to do." And... shut up, Parkman!
Carnival. Emma plays against her will. Doyle motion-plays behind her. I wonder if he actually has to know how to play to make her play correctly, or if it just works based on her knowing how? Outside, Samuel marvels at the giant crowd that's assembling. He finds Edgar in a tent somewhere and says Emma's doing an incredible job, and the crowd's all here to see them. Edgar asks what they're here to see -- "our acts?" Samuel asks what else he'd be referring to, but Edgar points out there are news cameras and asks if he invited them, too. Samuel says the world needs to meet them, since it's their biggest show ever. Edgar thinks Samuel seems nervous, but he says he's just excited because "Tonight changes everything, for all of us."
Hospital. Old Charlie explains that an old man was there waiting when she left the Burnt Toast that day, and "some old man" (that would be Arnold) who said he was a friend of Samuel's, put his hand on her shoulder and she ended up in Milwaukee in 1944. It was cold (January) and she was scared. She didn't know anyone, and she missed Hiro. She got a job in a munitions factory (all the girls did back then). She spouts facts at Hiro about planes, so we know she still has her encyclopedic memory. Hiro tells her he's sorry and this was all his fault since he led Samuel right to her. He says it was because he loved her that Samuel sent her away. Black-and-white flashback of Hiro and Charlie sweetly kissing.
