...and we cut to a "bridge", on which Tracy is standing as she stares down at the "water." As I've said before, I think the effects on this show are normally deserving of awards and accolades galore, but I think someone was on vacation for this scene because this is the most fake-looking setup I remember seeing on this show. Charmed would have pulled this off better. Anyway, Tracy jumps, but we see Nathan swoop by, and moments later, he floats up, holding her in his arms like they're crossing the threshold. Which was probably the intention, given what's coming in the future, but wouldn't it be a nice dose of magical realism if they reappeared in a mess of intertwined limbs and pulled hair? I'm sure some of the first takes with Pasdar and Larter in the harnesses looked like that, anyway. They fly off into the commercial break.
When we return, they're at her place, and she's fixing them both a much-needed cocktail. He asks if she's okay, and she wonders if maybe she was overhasty in recommending him for Senator as she duhs, "No." They sit down, and are hilarious as she's like, "So... you can fly?" and he jumps her line, "Yeah." Hee. She then reveals her power, and he's impressed that her hands aren't even cold. I'd be impressed too, but if she froze my drink like that I'd still have trouble not slapping her. Nathan is not gay, though, so he refrains, and Tracy responds by grabbing his face and kissing him. If attempted suicide leads to Pasdar-sex an hour later, I'm surprised more people aren't giving it a shot.
Nice cut back to the future, where, in a plaza with a "Pinehearst" sign, Nathan, now indeed President, is giving a speech about the tragedy that destroyed Costa Verde. Tracy, the First Lady, stands by her man as he tells everyone to pray together as a nation. Said prayers are not going to be enough to stop his brain from flopping out of his skull rather soon, but let's not get ahead of ourselves...
...because it's time for some shirtless Peter. Hey, shirtless guys with good bodies is not one of the elements of soap operas I frown upon. He's tied to a gurney next to his dead future self when Claire and The Haitian enter and Claire overacts about how his teleportation power won't work. Duh. As she picks up a scalpel, she tells him 200,000 people (and Mr. Muggles!) died in Costa Verde, and he needs to feel the pain of every single death.
