Carnival. Sylar's sitting across from a snow cone place, making me wonder how he's resisting the deliciousness and just sitting there, moping. Samuel comes up and Sylar whines about all of the murders and memories in his mind, but he cannot believe they're his. He wonders how many people he's killed: "A dozen? Two dozen?" Try somewhere closer to three or four dozen (and those are just the ones we've seen). Samuel tells him how difficult it can be to learn the truth, and Sylar's like, "Difficult? I am a monster! I stalk people, slash open their skulls." Samuel wonders if Sylar has thought about why he was brought here to the carnival. He says that in the carnival he's safe, but out in the real world people don't accept him. They turned him into the monster. Sylar asks if that makes it okay, and Samuel says it makes it the truth. He goes on that Sylar wanted the truth and now he has it, so the question is where he goes from here. "Do you wallow in self-pity, or do you learn to use the gifts God gave you and command fear and respect, and defend against those who would do us harm, all in the embrace of a community who loves you for exactly who you are?" First of all, Samuel, God didn't give Sylar most of his gifts; he got them by cutting people's heads open. Second, learn a new speech. Sylar points out that they just met Sylar, so how can they love him, knowing what he's done and who he is. Samuel says they're family, and family accepts and forgives. Oh, but there's a problem: That policeman who's hunting Sylar is here. He says it's not just about Sylar anymore now that they're harboring a criminal. Sylar asks what Samuel wants him to do, and Samuel manipulates that he can't make that decision for him, but Sylar's presence here puts them all in danger and something has to be done. Sylar asks where Warden Leo is, and Samuel says one of his men saw him go into the house of mirrors. Sylar's like, "Not that place again?" But he gets up and goes.
Back in the hospital, a nurse is scolding Hiro for getting out of bed again. She suggests using a leash, a cage, or a cattle prod, but I'm guessing none of those will stop a teleporter. She tells him to keep his Japanese tush in the bed, and then leaves. Hiro says he's not a pet, but Emma says the nurse is right and that he needs to stop using his power before it kills him. Hiro smiles and says his power isn't killing him; it keeps him alive. He says he was dying when he was stuck in a cubicle every day wasting his life. Emma asks how he can be so focused on helping others when he knows the cost, and Hiro tells Emma about Charlie: She knew she was dying, but that didn't change her at all, and she taught him to keep joy and dignity alive, even in the face of death. He then says to himself that he can't believe he forgot to put her on his list. He asks Emma for a paper and pen, and says he had a list of wrongs to right before he dies, and he can't believe he forgot her. He smiles as he writes her name down. Emma asks Hiro to promise he won't leave until Peter returns, and he nods his head at her.
