Peter's on a stretcher, telling Claire it hurts every time. He says he thought he'd get there first, but he did take him down. Claire says, yep, he saved the day. Peter says it's her turn and holds out his hand to borrow her power. She doesn't do it, and says it won't solve anything. He tells her to stop messing around, but she says he's the one running off after danger, trying to get himself killed. She says he has to stop, but he says he can't. She touches him, but says she won't always be here to be his personal safety net. He gets up in full view of everyone milling around the crime scene, because no one would notice if the guy who got shot did that, right? He says this is a good ability to hang onto. She asks what's so great about being a human pincushion, and he says that keeping on moving and acting on instinct means he doesn't have to think... She finishes: "About Nathan." He just sighs through his teary eyes. She tells him Nathan would be pissed at him for lying to himself and to everyone. She says he's not honoring Nathan's memory, but avoiding it. He cries that if he thinks about it, then it's real. If he mourns, it's real. You can tell Claire's sympathetic even while she's annoyed that he won't just listen to her. He says he misses him, and she knows. She misses him too. Commercials.
Back in the restaurant freezer, HRG brings a cup in and asks Edgar if he likes tea, then: "Of course you do, you're British." Edgar says he thought the skirt was the good cop, and HRG tells him to trust him; she is. This "talking" thing was her idea. If it were up to him, he'd be down to six fingers by now. He tells Edgar he saw him when he left Claire's dorm, and he could have taken him down at any time, with his super speed and all (more than 700 mph, by the way). So Edgar must want Bennet alive, and he asks what he needs him for. He asks what Edgar's doing out here with no compass, and no way to get home. Edgar admits he's been exiled for finding out that Samuel killed his brother, Joseph. He says Samuel convinced everyone it was Edgar's fault. Noah asks if they just believed him on his say-so, and Edgar just looks at him. He asks if Samuel's recruiting more and what he's going to do with them. Edgar doesn't know. He says "Sammy" is all about saber rattling. He ordered Edgar to kill Danko, and slice up Noah. "Sorry 'bout that." Noah says Edgar doesn't seem like a hit man to him. Edgar says he's a juggler, which Joseph told him, and he said it's the most useful skill a man can have because if he can keep a torch, chainsaw, and knife in the air, what can't he do? HRG asks why he's here, and he admits that he thought if he brought him back, Samuel would take him back. HRG asks if he'd go back after Samuel killed his brother and blamed it on him. Edgar says he's afraid of what Samuel's going to do to his friends and where he'll lead his family. HRG says that makes two of them, and they could help each other: "Enemy of my enemy makes us ... less antagonistic." Man, this episode is better than that first half, isn't it? And you know why? Not Sylar. Not even Peter. Bennet. This show is barely surviving now, but it would die a sudden and ugly death without him. Edgar smiles as HRG says they could stop Samuel together before he has a chance to hurt the people they love the most. Edgar asks if the tea's gone cold and then he drinks it.
