We Can Be Heroes, Just For One Day.

We get a lovely aerial view of New York, which is all the more awesome because I happen to be here right now on business, and then we hear a voice-over from Suresh, repeating some of the stuff he was saying at the beginning of the show. "This quest," he says, "this need to explain life's mysteries, in the end, what does it matter when the human heart can only find meaning in the smallest of moments?" Peter's standing on a rooftop, slowly waving his arms in the air. "They're here," continues Suresh's voice-over. "Among us. In the shadows. In the light. Everywhere. Do they even know yet?" Peter looks determined.

Down below in an alley, a cab pulls up. Nathan gets out and pays the driver. He calls Peter on his cell. "Alright, I'm here. Now, whaddya want?" Peter doesn't answer, but a cell phone drops from the sky and shatters next to Nathan's feet. He looks up and sees his brother standing on the edge of a building. "I've been up here all night!" he calls down. "Thinking about this, thinking about my destiny. It's my turn to be somebody now, Nathan!" Nathan tells him to quit screwing around, but Peter has never been screwing around less. He calmly centers himself and looks up at the sky. He raises his arms, smiles, and drops off the building. And you want him to fly. You really do. Only he doesn't. He just falls. Like a ton of bricks. As his brother watches. But then, in this entirely fantastic moment, Nathan... FLIES UP TO CATCH PETER. It's Nathan who can fly, not Peter! I really did not see that coming.

Nathan seems as surprised as Peter (and me) that he's flying. Peter's all, dude? YOU'RE FLYING. Nathan's all, I KNOW. ISN'T THAT WEIRD? Peter's all, uh, how're you doing this? Nathan's all, I have NO idea. Peter makes some weird movements that clearly tax Nathan's newfound ability to, you know, soar and shit, and suddenly, Peter loses his grip and Nathan can't hold him and whoops! There goes Peter!
