Meanwhile, Molly's having nightmares again. Matt enters her room and tries to listen to her thoughts as she's tossing and turning. It's a lot of "Help me, please!" and "Don't hurt me!" and it seems like a normal nightmare until we hear a man's voice whisper, "I can see you, Molly!" Molly wakes with a start and Matt immediately holds onto her. He tells her to find the guy who's scaring her, but she says that if she does that and Matt goes after him, he'll kill Matt and Molly doesn't want that to happen. He promises that no one's going to get killed and then he soothes her out of her nightmare.
Back with Claire, she's mournfully sitting on top of the tower, ruminating on why she didn't just do the damn back flip anyway. She gets up to leave the tower, stops, and then decides to go for it. She checks to see if anyone's around first and then jumps off the tower, landing hard on her feet. Her left shin breaks beneath her and she falls down. She sets the bone with a crack and the bruise that had appeared there immediately disappears. West enters and asks her what the hell she's still doing there. She looks at him like, "Well, there's one thing I'm NOT doing and that's JUMPING OFF CHEER TOWERS!" He sees right through this and glances up, putting two and two together. He's totally onto her.
Klinko's. Bennet's enjoying his coffee break, but Pube-Stache thinks it's about time the break was OVER. Bennet thinks Pube-Stache should maybe stop harassing him and make better use of his time, say, collating TPS reports or something. Pube-Stache continues to needle Bennet, saying there's a line of customers out front, even though there isn't, and Bennet calmly says he's going to finish his coffee, thanks. Pube-Stache steps WAY over the line and pokes his finger in Bennet's face, telling him to get on the floor. "Do you hear me?" "Oh, I hear you," says Bennet, grabbing Pube-Stache's finger in his fist and twisting him around so that the guy's flat on his back on the table. Awesome. "Now hear me," says Bennet. "I am through eating your crap. From now on I will work how and when I feel like it. I will take breaks when I want to. And you will not say one damn word to me ever again. Understand?" Boy howdy does he EVER understand!
1671. The Year of the Hot Blond Samurai. Hiro's trying to work it all out in his head, the whole Kensei-being-a-white-guy thing. Kensei goes off to take leak and explains the meaning of his name: Saint Sword. He chose it to instill fear in his opponents. He thought of it when he came over from England. "You ah Engrish?!" says Hiro in surprise. Kensei's ecstatic that he's finally met someone who speaks his mother tongue. He explains that he came over on a tea boat and wound up staying to make his fortune. He gets paid to fight off bandits and such. Hiro's horrified; his hero does not fight for money! He fights for honor! Kensei's like, "Not a lot of bank in honor, dude." He tells Hiro that he hired that impersonator to distract the warriors in the field so that he could climb up a tree and make an easy target out of all the men. Hiro thinks this is fighting dirty, and he's disgusted. Kensei begs to differ, saying that he thinks it's fighting smart. "I give him a fair wage! If he lives!" Heh. Hiro stops him, saying that he comes from the future and that he read tales of Kensei's triumphs as a boy. He killed some bear, fell in love with some guy's daughter, and saved the village of Otsu. That's when Hiro realizes that the village in the distance is on fire. The village of Otsu. Looks like Hiro's interference with Kensei led to the destruction of the village he was supposed to have saved. Oopsy.
