The Gayest Station Wagon In The Country pulls into a roadside diner's parking lot, and after Luke babbles some more, Sylar gets off a good one: "Luke. You really gotta stop trying to be my friend, or I'm gonna have to kill you." Luke then spins a yarn about how Sylar's dad likes birds, and they used to go bird-watching together, and when Luke mentions a wagon Sylar's dad had, Sylar suddenly recalls, "He used to pull me in that wagon." Ick. Sylar wistfully recalls some more Daddy Issue Details that you couldn't pay me enough to recap, and Luke momentarily gets on my good side by pissing all over this nauseating reminiscence: "He sold you for money, you know." Nice. Sylar knows full well this is true, so he asks why he would even tell Luke that, and Luke speculates that maybe he reminded him of Sylar. Ugh, so Sylar's the Kelly Taylor and Luke's the Tara Marks of this equation. No wonder I hate this storyline so much.
Abby and Nathan enter the room in which Tracy is being held prisoner, sitting in a chair with her wrists chained, and Abby's horrified. Nathan thinks her reaction is because of the use of extreme heat in the room to counter Tracy's freezing power, but it's actually because Abby knows Tracy from her lobbying days. Tracy seizes her opening and begs Abby to do something, and Abby, in no uncertain terms, tells Nathan that she's shutting the operation down that very day, and on top of that, she's going to file human-rights violations against Nathan with the Attorney General. "This is torture. You're through." Abby's new around here, obviously. Tracy yells Abby's name, but she's already ridden her wave of righteous indignation out the door.
