Ted "Radioactive Man" Sprague sulks in an investigation room. When everything goes up in flames, that bright-orange jumpsuit will be excellent camouflage for him. Studying Ted through a window, Matt asks Audrey if he's talking. She says he isn't, and that he only has an hour to do so "before Homeland Security sends him down a rabbit hole as a suspected terrorist." Between them, Matt and Audrey exposit everything we learned about Ted last week -- his wife, the cancer, the fact that he sets off everyone's Geiger counters not because he handles radioactive material but because he is radioactive material. Frustrated, Audrey spits, "You know, three months ago my job made perfect sense to me. And then I pulled the Sylar case. Crime scenes with no fingerprints, bodies frozen, brains removed -- and now this guy. That's two people" -- she turns from the window to narrow her eyes at Matt -- "make that three people who can do things they just can't explain." Matt takes umbrage that Audrey could think he is like Sylar or Ted, but Audrey basically tells him that there's no time for umbrage and that they have to figure some shit out. As she heads for the door to Ted's holding pen, she hands Matt a little gadget with "DOSIMETRY" ominously written across it, and explains (for those in the audience who are anxiously waiting for the commercial so that they can empty their drool cups) that it measures radiation levels. Matt taps it, and Audrey adds, "As long as that's dark green, we're good." "What's the bad colour?" asks Matt. "Not green," Audrey replies. Ha, I hope there's a scene later where they're like, "It's sort of green; maybe it just doesn't look green because it's next to something green. Put it up next to something white," and then the camera cuts to the dosimeter and it's, like, fluorescent red and growing tentacles -- you know, in homage to the pregnancy-test scene in Singles.
