Another flash of light and we're catching up with Nathan outside his campaign office as he heads toward the car that's taking him to Vegas. One of his lackeys is trying to convince him to hold off before getting "into bed" with Linderman. "I can handle Linderman," says Nathan. "He may have owned my father, but he doesn't own me." Anyone else think that Papa Petrelli was a politician in bed with the mob? The lackey says this whole thing makes him nervous, and Nathan says it's his job to be nervous, but it's Nathan's job to get elected. For that, he needs money, and Linderman's two million would come in very handy. Nathan goes to get into the car and, just then, Suresh runs up and starts screaming at him.
"Mr. Petrelli! Excuse me! I must speak with you!" The bodyguards stop Suresh as Nathan tells his lackey to keep an eye on Suresh. "Thanks for your vote," he says as he flashes the "V" for victory sign and enters the car. "Your life may be in danger!" shouts Mohinder. Oh, that's never a good thing to yell at a politician. They're kind of prepared for that sort of shit and you might wind up dead. I'm just sayin'. Nate steps back from the car and looks at him and Mohinder says that someone may be targeting him. "Can you be a little bit more specific?" says Nathan. "Twelve percent of the electorate strongly opposes me." Hee. One of my favorite lines so far.
Mohinder asks if the name "Sylar" means anything to Nathan, but it doesn't ring a bell. Nathan asks for his name and Mohinder just says it's Dr. Suresh. This omission of his first name, of course, leaves the playing field wide open for Nathan to think that he's the guy on the back of the book Peter kept waving around at him, even though Mohinder is neither wearing a turban nor over sixty years of age. Nathan looks at his lackey and orders him to get rid of Mohinder. The lackey, instead of shooting him in the head like someone in the mafia would when ordered to "get rid of" someone, just asks Mohinder for his contact information. Mohinder continues to yell at Nathan's car as it drives away. "Have you noticed any changes to your physiology? Anything outside the norm, perhaps? An ability you didn't have before? Mind reading? Spontaneous regeneration? Please! It is very important that you listen to me." Inside the car, Nathan is stoic, but clearly spooked. He tells his lackey to keep an eye on Mohinder. "I don't want this nut job following me to Vegas." The lackey assures him that that won't happen, and as Nathan drives off, he gets rid of Mohinder. In the non-murderous way.
