Back in the hotel room, Suresh is unfrozen and the match drops and the film burns. Samuel comes in and says he needs to know what was on that film, since it was about his ability, and a way to increase his power a thousand-fold. He laughs, then screams, "Tell me!" Mohinder says Joseph warned him about him, and Samuel paces saying that for all these years, Joseph has been betraying him and holding him back so he could play the king. He has a large rock in his hand, which he breaks and then tells Mohinder it's his last chance to tell him what's on the film, as he smashes the rock in his hand. Samuel says he'll learn the truth, and Mohinder says he'll do everything he can to stop him. Samuel backs up and throws the rock bits at Mohinder. He gets teary, says he's sorry and leaves Mohinder for dead. But then Mohinder sits up and coughs, realizing he's wearing a bulletproof (and rock-proof, apparently) vest. Hiro's there, and Mohinder greets him with surprise. Hiro says, "Hello, old friend." Commercials.
Back in the hotel, Hiro says he's not the Hiro he knows; he's from eight weeks in the future. Mohinder asks if it was to save his life, and Hiro says it was to save the film, because in the future he knows, Mohinder's dead. Hiro explains his time travel's not so good lately and he arrived ten minutes later to find Mohinder dead, so he knew to put the Kevlar vest on him. Mohinder realizes that if he hadn't gone to Samuel, he'd never have known the secrets of his power. His investigation has corrupted Samuel. Mohinder says they have to stop him. Hiro says they will, but first Mohinder has to disappear for eight weeks until Samuel releases Charlie. Or, I don't know, go back in time and destroy the film before Mohinder watches it? Mohinder says he can't go away for eight weeks while Samuel consolidates his power, but Hiro says if Samuel knows he saved him, he'll never release Charlie. Mohinder thinks their primary focus has to be stopping Samuel. Hiro won't risk Charlie's life. Mohinder says they'll have to agree to disagree, so Hiro says he'll have to make him disappear. He freezes time and apologizes.
