At the hospital, Emma's finally getting up the nerve to talk to Hiro. When she enters his room, Hiro yells at her to go away because he has no more blood left. Hee. Hiro is so cute. She acts confused and then tells him she reads lips, but his move differently. He apologizes for his Japanese-accented lips, and then they proceed to talk without any lip-reading problems. So, why exactly did they act like this was more difficult for her when she understands everything he says? Whatever. She tells him that Peter sent her to find out more about her abilities, and Hiro gets excited that she has a power. She wants to make her power stop, but Hiro doesn't get it since, "Manifesting a power's a wondrous time. A hero never refuses its call." She says she's deaf, so she can't hear the call. Right, Emma, it's what we call a metaphor. Hiro talks to himself in Japanese, that this must be whom he's here to save, not Peter. Then he talks slowly to her, telling her she can't turn off her power; it's part of who she is. She apologizes for bothering him and leaves. He shakes his head knowingly.
Cainan, Georgia. HRG and Peter arrive at the house of the supposed healer kid to find dead plants and bushes. HRG acknowledges it's not exactly what you'd expect from a healer, so Peter wonders what HRG knows about the kid. The answer: not much. He was just coming to terms with his ability at the time, so the Company wiped his memory and ignored him. HRG reminds Peter the Company wasn't exactly a support group and Peter agrees: "More about the powers. Less about the people." HRG assures Peter he did see the kid heal, though, including healing HRG's arm when he sliced it pretty bad. On the porch they see a dead bird, and then they both realize they smell even more death. HRG draws his gun and they knock on the front door, and then enter, shouting. In the living room, they find two dead bodies. HRG says it's the kids parents, and then he tells Peter about this one other time that a girl's power manifested as healing but over time it became something more: she could control the flow of life, by giving it or taking it away. They holler for Jeremy, who shoots at them and then runs upstairs. Why exactly does the kid need a gun if he can kill people by touching them?
