...and then we fade up on a shot of a State Department limousine near the Washington Monument as the chyron tells us that Volume Four is called "Fugitives." It's three weeks later, and Nathan is telling someone in the car that their "only real option" is to get the Federal Government involved. The other guy is looking over a dossier, presumably supplied by Nathan, and in it we see profiles of Tracy, Micah, Mohinder, Hiro, and Matt, among others, I'm sure, although it's worth mentioning there's no file visible for any of Nathan's blood relatives, complete with their abilities. Nathan tells the guy that they could all be very dangerous, and his solution proved unsuccessful, so he wants to round them up and put them in a facility "where they won't be a danger to anyone." As I said in the recaplet: Genosha. And that doesn't end well.
The guy agrees to Nathan's plan, and Nathan hops out, but turns back to say this: "Thank you, Mr. President." And said President is black, which just makes me all the more thankful for the Obama win, because this would otherwise be pretty painful to watch. The motorcade takes off, and Nathan's thoughtful? Conflicted? Satisfied? visage is what we have to tide us over until February. See you then!
