In the back room, Charlie's opening her giant jar of fruit salad. Sylar's hiding behind a shelf but she doesn't see him. He raises his finger to start the head cutting when time freezes. Hiro comes in and looks at frozen Charlie, then turns and looks at frozen Sylar, exasperated. After a break for commercials, Hiro's wheeling frozen Sylar out past frozen everyone else on a dolly. He actually has Sylar duct-taped to it, so he did some quick work during our commercial break. It's still funny to watch Hiro do this. Hiro puts Sylar into the cargo hold of a bus as he tells him he has to stay on his path and Peter has to stop him to make everything in the future stay normal. So he'll just leave him here. We get a funny shot of Sylar's frozen head in with suitcases, but you can't help but wonder how long it will take a guy with Sylar's abilities to get out of this bind once Hiro restarts time. Inside, Hiro's nervous and checks himself out in the mirror to make sure he looks presentable for the love of his life before restarting time so she can see him. He gives himself a little pep talk, in which he tells himself in Japanese not to be nervous since he's going to be "awesome-charming-super-cool." Hee. I miss this Hiro, who's still sort of silly but not just a total waste of time and space (ironic, since he's supposedly the master of those things). As he goes to restart time, he reminds himself that if Charlie doesn't die, he doesn't go back to save her, and they don't fall in love. "Great-oh Scott." He runs out to see Ando sitting alone, and then he sees Charlie's birthday photo without him in it. He looks at Samuel.
In the bathroom, Hiro finds past Hiro. When he tells him he's from the future, past Hiro is like, "Ah! Like Peter Petrelli saw on the subway train. Where's your sword?" Oh, but I have so many more questions than that, Hiro. First of all, why didn't that Hiro come to pass? Is that only the Hiro that would happen if they didn't save the world in Season 1? But, back to that scene, why did Hiro tell Peter he looks different without his scar as if he'd never seen him without it when we know they know each other? Was that also only if the Season 1 world-saving hadn't come to pass? I'm going to pretend that's the case so I can stop caring about why. Past Hiro is here to save the cheerleader, but present Hiro tells him she will be fine, and he actually needs to save the waitress, who's dead. He won't let past Hiro see her, but he sends him back six months to find Charlie. He tells him she's MJ to their Spidey. Present Hiro tries to be all serious about it (as if it's possible to be this serious when telling someone that a woman is MJ to your Spidey) and tells him what to do, then calls him a moron after he goes back. He looks at the picture of Charlie's birthday and he's with her now. Hiro "Yatta!"s.
