Okay, so now there's a comic book called 9th Wonders that you can buy in any store and predicts the future, and Ando totally breezily tells Hiro about it like it's the best-known thing ever, like, seriously, fuck off, show. I'm trying not to be overly negative, but this is just bullshit. Anyway, there's an eclipse coming, like, you don't say.
Back at Primatech, Nathan shows up, and he and everyone else listen as Angela tells them that Arthur has two pieces to the formula, and she and Peter have both seen the future and it sucks ass. Matt pipes up his confirmation of that assessment, and Angela goes on to tell them about a third piece -- the catalyst Mohinder theorized about earlier. She says that Kaito was the only one who knew the identity of the host, but as we look at the understanding on Claire's face, we can of course recall that Kaito was the one who personally gave her to Bennet to raise. Claire tells them about what Sylar told her when he attacked her -- that she was different from everyone else. "I didn't understand what that meant until today. I think I'm the catalyst." Dramatic drumming kicks up...
...and as we intercut between Primatech and Pinehearst, we're meant to think the lines are drawn: The Primatech team, as I mentioned, is Angela, Peter, Nathan, Claire, Matt, and Daphne, while Pinehearst is fielding Knox, Flint, Elle, Sylar, Tracy, and Arthur. Mohinder babbles as Arthur, surrounded by his minions, looks into the future and sees something I believe is referred to in some esoteric circles as an "eclipse," and tells his group that said phenomenon will arrive at some point in the future, or, as he puts it, that "it" is "coming." But not until next time, because we're done, thank God.
