Peter's hands start glowing and he says, "I took his power, Nathan!" Nathan's standing in front of him. "I can't control it!" "Let me help you, Peter," Nathan says calmly. "You can't!" says Peter. "I'm not leaving you," says Nathan. Peter starts the exploding process and screams, just like he always does, only this time, we see the results of the explosion. Namely, Nathan, Simone, and all of New York blowing apart like leaves. Back in the real world, Peter wakes with a blood-curdling scream.
After the break, Nathan shows up in the hospital room, only to find that Peter's bed is completely abandoned. He asks Mama Petrelli where the hell his brother is, and she just says that he woke up, raved for a bit, and then just up and left. "You just let him leave?" asks Nathan. "No, I did not just let him leave!" she says angrily. "And when I see him, I will kill him." Heh. Nathan tells her to go home and get some rest and says that he'll take care of it.
Superstudio of Superheroes. Simone's chatting with Hiro about how he's in Isaac's comic book. "I'm just like Mr. Isaac draw me," says Hiro, "except my face not so round." Heh. Simone just smiles and gets this kind of lightly hysterical tone to her voice. "Okay, uh, I give up! The world is insane, I'm not gonna keep fighting it. You can paint the future!" She looks at Isaac and then at Hiro. "And he needs a sword!" Hee. She goes on to say that Linderman's a client of hers and that she can take them to see him so they can get the sword. She rolls up several of Isaac's paintings and shoves them into a tube, handing it over to Hiro. The second it's in his hands, he (and we) realize that this is the very tube he put his sword into during the Blue Subway sequence with Peter.
Cut to Peter, walking along a New York street while talking on his cell. He's trying to get a flight into the Nevada desert because "that's where they did all those nuclear bomb tests." Maybe he's trying to figure out how to control his potential radioactive power or something. In a nice bit of continuity, Peter still looks like hollowed-out crap. He's on the verge of settling with flying into Las Vegas when he looks up and sees Christopher Eccleston in the distance, boldly stealing cash right out of a woman's wallet. We get several flashes back to Peter's Future Dream, as if we're too addled to remember something we saw not five fucking minutes ago.
Peter gives chase to Christopher Eccleston, watching as the guy just picks up someone's cell phone and pockets it. Peter catches up with him, grabs him on the arm and demands to know what the hell he's doing. With furious eyes, Christopher Eccleston turns around and incredulously says, "You can see me." "You--" is all Peter manages before Christopher Eccleston grabs him and slams him up against a pole (dirty!). "Nobody sees me!" shouts Christopher Eccleston. "Do ya hear me?" He wraps his hands around Peter's throat and they thrash it out, causing confusion amongst the nearby vendors, who are not only seeing their shit tossed around by... no one, but are also hearing voices from people who... don't seem to be there.
