Midland, Texas. Sylon-in-Parkman's in the Burnt Toast Diner, and orders the Tahitian pancakes, since Charlie told him they were good last week/three years ago. He orders a coke, then looks at Parkman-Sylon and makes it a diet. Ah, fat jokes. Greg Grunberg must love it. The waitress tells him life's too short for artificial sweeteners, so Sylon-in-Parkman makes it a regular coke again. When he leaves, Sylon-in-Parkman tells Parkman-Sylon that he tried to kill a waitress here once before, and Parkman-Sylon says he can't kill her. Sylon-in-Parkman: "Oh, I'm sorry. Did you miss my whole 'the world is my hostage' bit earlier?" He calls that a bit? Not so much. Parkman-Sylon gets it, and has kept quiet, but Sylon-in-Parkman wants to know everything: how he's in his body and where his body is. Parkman-Sylon says no, so Sylon-in-Parkman threatens the waitress and heads back to where she went into the backroom. Parkman-Sylon tries to stop him, and Sylon-in-Parkman says he will if he tells him what he wants to know. The waitress comes out and Sylon-in-Parkman walks ominously toward her until Parkman-Sylon jumps in and says he'll tell him anything he wants to know. So, Sylon-in-Parkman just grabs a straw from her.
Back in Claire's dorm room, Samuel's apparently filled Claire in because she asks, "So you can move the earth?" Samuel says it's something like that. He tells her they're all like her; a family of sorts, all people with extraordinary abilities. He says that Rebecca came to them when she was young, so Claire says she's not his niece then? He says family is about more than blood; it's about people who love and accept and embrace you unconditionally. Claire asks if he embraces Becky pushing her roommate out the window. He says of course not, but she's complicated because her father was murdered when she was five. Claire wonders how that's her fault, and Samuel says it's not: "You're not the one she's after."
Cut to Becky telling HRG, "It's all about you." He says he's sorry, and she says, "You don't remember me at all?" Then she guesses he wouldn't since he never saw her, but she remembers him. She says she was five, and we get a black-and-white flashback of a little girl having a tea party. He came to her house to try to take her and her dad away. He hid her and told her to stay out of sight, and she'd never seen him so scared. Bennet comes in shooting, without glasses. And we cut to Claire asking Samuel about it, so we know father and daughter are hearing the same story. Claire's sure he had a good reason, and Samuel says the reason was that they were different, "potentially dangerous." He had no warrant or probable cause, and didn't need it for people like them. Becky tells Bennet she laid under the bed and wished he wouldn't find her, and he didn't. HRG: "Your ability manifested." She says she wished her dad wasn't dead, and has spent her whole life wondering why she could make a wish and save herself but not her dad. She's holding a stuffed lamb she had when she was hiding under the bed as she's talking to HRG. Samuel says he thought Becky might have moved past it, but... Claire finished, "She came to get revenge on him." Samuel: "Through you."
