...we cut to Hiro now inside, and he comes upon his younger self, who's holding the dove his mother healed in memory of her. Our Hiro laments the fact that his father gave him a simple task and he failed, and Young Hiro replies that his mother has a saying: "My mom would say if you can fix it today, you won't have to worry about it tomorrow." Well, Ishi was about the best thing in this season, so I suppose I can forgive her a pithy non-sequitur from beyond the grave. Of course, this gives our Hiro An Idea, and he asks Young Hiro to help him find a piece of paper with numbers and figures on it in his dad's possession. Young Hiro is reluctant, but Hiro tells him he can save tomorrow, and Young Hiro is in. Seems a little easy until you consider that Hiro should really know how to manipulate his ten-year-old self, especially considering that he recently got a very painful-to-watch refresher course on how he thinks.
Angela and Claire have a pointless but short exchange about Sylar, and then he calls and offers Claire her freedom, as well as that of Bennet and Meredith, if she'll simply blow her grandmother's head off. Claire looks aghast, but Angela's attitude basically seems to be "Yeah, I probably have it coming anyway." She listens as Sylar complains that she made him think he had a family and then took it all away, and then suggests Claire ask Bennet what he and Elle did to Sylar. Claire looks wigged, especially when she hears Elle is dead, and as Sylar continues to exhort her to kill Angela, she turns to her and pumps the gun, getting Angela's attention -- but she whirls and blows the phone to smithereens instead. It'll suck for her if she runs out of ammo later, but I still have to think it was worth it.
Bennet has opted for utter chaos as his weapon of choice in fighting Sylar, as he's released the Unit 5 prisoners despite the fact, as Meredith ably points out, "they want to kill us as much as Sylar does!" On top of that, Sylar is not a master of creepy PUPPETS and CLOWNS, unlike Doyle, who's standing before her now. Danny Pine is there too, and Bennet tells the VILLAINS that whoever gets Sylar earns his freedom, and they might as well play along, given that Sylar has the place locked down. Of course, there's nothing to stop them from killing Bennet and Meredith and then going after Sylar, but maybe they see the wisdom in not killing people who are on your side, even temporarily. Except when they're gone, Bennet reveals to Meredith that he's just using them as bait, and in some other dimension, Vortex Guy is shaking his head at his former fellow prisoners all "That's what you get for trusting a guy with horn-rimmed glasses."
