So, Claire's wandering around the scene of her previously documented suicides, wondering aloud, "Save the cheerleader, save the world -- what does that even MEAN?" Oh, I feel you, sister. She's talking to Haitian Sensation, asking him if she's been saved or if she still needs saving. He says she's been saved for the time being. She wants to talk to Peter and he says that she's not supposed to remember Peter. He's being watched, so if Claire tries to contact him, Bennett will know. Claire says that she needs something to hang onto because nothing in her life has been real, including her biological parents who, she learns, work for her father, just like Haitian Sensation. "Everything has been a lie," she says. "The only person I could trust was Zach, and you took him from me." Haitian Sensation says that was Bennett's doing, not his. Well, that's kind of like saying guns don't kill people, people kill people. I think the gun helps, you know? Bennett ordered Haitian Sensation to erase Zach's mind, but Haitian Sensation actually DID the erasing.
Claire wants Zach to have his memories back so that she's not alone. He says that she's not alone. But he can't give Zach back his memories. "It's not how my gift works," he says. "Your gift? Is that what you call it?" she says. He asks what she calls it. "My own private freak show," she says. "What you can do," he says, "what I can do, that is God. Respect it accordingly." He touches her on the shoulder and then leaves. Claire looks around her and realizes where she is and seems to get an idea.
Superstudio of Superheroes. Hiro is explaining to Nathan about the bomb and how it'll make everything go "poof!" "Your English is a lot better," Nathan observes dryly. "I met a waitress in Texas," says Hiro. "She teach me many things." "Good for you," says Nathan, clearly meaning more than just the better English thing. Heh. Hiro kind of smiles, acknowledging Nathan's good wishes. "So, uh, look, I can't believe I'm about to say this," says Nathan, "but... you--you... teleported here... back from the future?" Nathan's visibly pained at having to speak these words out loud. Heh. Hiro confirms that his power let him come back here so he could stop the bomb. "Right," says Nathan. "Because, 'you hero'." "You will help too," says Hiro. "Me?" says Nathan. "What makes you so sure?" "You Flying Man! WHOOOOSH!" says Hiro, making his shooting-off-into-the-sky gesture. "Would you keep it down?" says Nathan under his breath. "... whooooosh... " says Hiro, making a smaller version of the gesture. Hee hee hee. Nathan asks Hiro if he knows what it is that makes the bomb go off. "Don't know," says Hiro. "Probably bad guy?" "Bad guy?" says Nathan. "Yes," says Hiro. "Like birrann." Nathan: "What's that?" Hiro: "Birrann." Nathan: "Billan?" Hiro: "Beeeerrann." Nathan: "Villain." Hiro: "Vee." Nathan: "V." Hiro: "Veeeee-yun."
