Now it's time to meet some of our new Heroes. Maya and Alejandro are Hondurans who seem to be on the run from the law. They're carrying satchels and running like hell through the rural streets of San Cristobal. Why they're running, we don't know, but I'll be it has something to do with someone's odd ability to make people bleed out their eyeballs... They manage to evade their pursuers by hiding in an abandoned building. Alejandro wants to keep running, but Maya's tired. She says that if they get caught, people will die. He tells her that if they don't keep running to America, people will probably die anyway, so they might as well go to America and get some answers as to what they are. We see a "Wanted" poster tacked to a wall that tells us the sibiings are wanted for murder.
Cut to Claire and Noah (!) Bennet, checking into a new school. Claire's worried that she's not going to fit in because she can re-grow her bones and all. Her father tries to assure her that she'll make plenty of friends because she's awesome and teenagers in California are no different than teenagers in Texas. Except for the supermodel who passes them and makes Noah wonder if statutory rape laws apply in L.A. the same way they do back in the Lone Star state. Bennet tells Claire that she has to keep her stories straight now that she's a fugitive. He warns her that she has to be less than ordinary, even though she's extraordinary. "Right," she says. "Don't stand out in any way." "Don't raise your hand in class," he says. "And don't even think about trying out for cheerleading." He wants her to blend in and try to appear normal.
They get to their car and Claire makes some ballsy statement about how she'd fit in better if she had her own car. Especially this nice product-placed Chrysler Rogue that just happens to be parked next to them. He surprises her by handing her the keys right there in the parking lot, because nothing says "inconspicuous" like a father giving his daughter a new car right in front of her school. The bell rings and Claire goes to leave, but Bennet stops her and says how sorry he is for all he's put her through and how much he loves her. She immediately goes to him and they have a nice big hug. The second bell rings and Claire runs off. Unfortunately, she runs right in front of a total hottie's car. He gives her a "What the hell is your problem, bitch?" look and she shrugs and apologizes and Bennet watches all of this like, "What'd I SAY about being un-extraordinary?" ["Also, the hottie in question is Larry Fouch from Election, and if he turned Mr. McAllister in, he'll do it to you too." -- Sars]
