Hospital. Ando watches through a window as doctors say things like, "What's your prognosis?" Hiro wakes and we cut into court as Adam asks Ando, in Japanese, to tell him about the day at the carnival and what happened to the "slushy" in question. The kids tell Adam it slipped out of Ando's hand and hit a strange old man. They point at Hiro and say it was that strange old man. Ando objects and says that wasn't selfish, but helped two people fall in love. Hiro agrees, and says no one got hurt, so what's the crime in that? Adam, for clarity, asks if, on Hiro's scale of temporal justice, it's okay as long as no one gets hurt. Hiro says, yes, that's his definition. Adam says good, because his next witness is here. Hiro looks over and sees Sylar in the window as clocks tick.
The real Sylar is back at college with Claire, who asks Sylar to just tell him where Gretchen is. Sylar says Claire's been holding out on him, and now he knows why he was supposed to find her: They're the same. She does the same thing as him. She builds walls to keep from connecting with people. Like Gretchen. Then he says that all the memory hits he got from her stuff while he was tying her up have such a different context now. That room is so full of ... pauses. She asks what he said, and he repeats "Pauses. All these moments so full of ... subtext." I think that TV shows are supposed to actually have subtext, not talk about it. Just as an FYI to the writers, if they actually know how to read, which I tend to doubt. He tells Claire that she can't say the one thing she really wants to say to Gretchen. Then: "Heck, you keep this up, you might end up alone forever, too." Then he adds that she's the indestructible girl who can't put herself out there to get hurt. He scoffs and she grabs a pencil from her pocket and sticks it in his eye. She says he is off his game, since he just told her where Gretchen is. Sylar groans (and the pencil in his eye is pretty disturbing-looking) as she leaves.
Diner Court. Sylar's apparently been asked how many people he killed.
