In the carnival trailer, Mohinder babbles about what Samuel's capable of, when Joseph stops him and says he's well aware, but Samuel has no idea. It's been Joseph's life's work to keep him in the dark about the true nature of his power. Joseph says their mother told him about Samuel soon after their release from internment at Coyote Sands. He says Mohinder saw it on film, but their mother lived it. Joseph says he has kept their community small to keep Samuel's power subdued. He says he loves his brother, but he's become a man of great ambition, and can taste what he's capable of. Mohinder says Samuel's powers could increase a thousand-fold with the information on that film. Joseph tells Mohinder to go back to India and burn that film, because they must do everything to keep this genie in a bottle. Mohinder asks how he knows he can trust him. Joseph says he's watched over Samuel for more than forty years and everything's been fine, so Mohinder's no longer welcome here. He leaves, and we see Samuel's been outside the trailer, listening.
In his hotel room, Mohinder calls Mira and says she was right, this was all a mistake. He should have left that box unopened. He misses her and will be on the next plane home. He hangs up and looks at the film reel. He picks it up and pulls out the hotel garbage can and some lighter fluid (he must have stopped on his way back from the carnival). He picks up matches, lights one, gazes at the film in the garbage can. Just as he flicks the match into the trash, he freezes. Hiro's there, and he swaps out the film reel for a dummy reel. Then he stops and whispers for frozen Dr. Suresh to be careful because the evil butterfly man is coming.
Tracy and Claire sit and laugh at Bennet's. Claire points out Tracy hasn't lost control of her abilities in over an hour. She doesn't think what's happening is physical, but psychological. Tracy: "Great. I panic-attack with powers." Claire asks when it started, and Tracy says this morning. She says she was sitting in a diner thinking about ... changing everything, her entire life. She says she's been so lost, because she couldn't put her old life back together; nothing fit anymore. She says she met this strange man named Samuel. Claire knows; she met him too. Tracy says he invited her to join them and move to the place where they're all accepted. She says she might do it. Claire thinks maybe she should, maybe that's what her body is telling her it wants (or maybe the compass is telling her that?). Tracy smiles and says it's great to have someone to talk to about all of this, because it's hard to find a friend in the normal world that you can trust. Claire says she had someone like that, but is pretty sure it's over. She says college sounded good on paper, but now she's starting to wonder. Tracy agrees it's hard out there for girls like them. Bennet comes in with a bag of groceries. He greets them, with "Ladies," as if he expected them both there. He looks at Claire's still amputated foot (why haven't they put it back on yet?!), and asks "How was your day?" Claire: "Oh, you know. Same old, same old."
