Mohinder runs over and kneels in front of the kid, telling him that he came into his dream last night. "I don't come to anyone," says the boy. "They come to me." Mohinder asks why, and the boy tells him it's because they have questions that need answers. Well, that's not too cryptic or anything. Mohinder isn't sure he has a question, but the boy just giggles and says he has one, all right. Mohinder says that he has two paths in front of him and he needs to know which one to take. What, the two paths that have you either hitting the "Yes" or "No" buttons on the "Do you want to quit?" question panel on your father's computer? Because, and I don't think I'm being to terribly rude here or anything, FUCKING DUH, MOHINDER. The Dream Boy agrees with me because he tells Mohinder that he already has the answer he seeks. The boy returns to his soccer game and Mohinder's all, what? Huh? What's my answer? FOLLOW YOUR FATHER'S PATH, YOU FUCKING SONAMBULISTIC MORON. God.
Burnt Toast Diner. Ando's still just... sitting there. Waiting for Hiro. Don't you think the wait staff would've been like, "Uh, dude? You've been sitting here since nine in the morning. Can we get you anything else or do you possibly want your damn check already? In case you haven't noticed, we're short-staffed due to the whole dead-waitress thing going on around here." Ando goes to put sugar in his four billionth cup of coffee and sees that the dispenser's empty. In one of the clunkiest plot-development staging moments of the series, Ando gets up and walks over to another table to take the full sugar dispenser and just happens to look up and to his left to see the picture of Hiro and Charlie above the shrine. He walks over and plucks the picture off the board and runs over to a waitress.
He asks her when the picture was taken, and she tells him it was taken at Charlie's birthday, six months ago. Ando asks if she knows Hiro and she says that she does and that he and Charlie were tight. Ando asks where Hiro is now and the waitress says that he disappeared from Charlie's life a couple of weeks ago. Ooooh, maybe she's not dead but just missing -- like some of the posters have speculated! Ando looks confused. You and me both, brother. Also? Apparently Masi Oka appeared on Conan last week and he talked about how his publicist gave him the recap in which I say that I'd like to keep Hiro as a pet. Masi seemed to think this was very amusing and wasn't bothered by it at all. He even said that as long as I fed him, he'd be totally cool with being kept in a cage. I would just like to state, for the record, that I do not have any deep-seated desire to put Masi Oka in a cage. I think he's a lovely person, with a geeky sense of humor, and I love his portrayal of Hiro. But I do NOT want to lock him up. Because that would be weird.
