Odessa. Claire and Zach are at a cafÃ©, looking up a news story about a fire in Kermit, Texas, fourteen years ago. Zach zeroes in on an item about a woman named Meredith Gordon. It says that she and her 18-month old baby were killed. They realize that Claire must be that baby. "But I didn't die," says Claire. "Somebody thought you did," says Zach. He suggests that, even though her mother is dead, maybe she has family that Claire can contact. He says that one of them may even know who her real father is. Claire considers this.
Matt's at his review hearing, getting chewed out by his superiors. They think he's batshit crazy. Matt listens in on their thoughts and uses the knowledge he gleans from there to turn his story around and declare that the entire Sylar-in-a-secret-Bennet-run-prison is a lie. He just made it up so he could look powerful and possibly convince his superiors to make him a detective. So, instead of thinking he's crazy, now they think he's a liar. They suspend him and ask him to turn in his gun and his badge. Matt's flattened by this, probably because he was thinking that if he dropped the crazy-ass story, they might just let him keep his job. Later that day, he returns home to find Mrs. Matt up in the bathroom, freaking out over the busted sink. "Now are you gonna fix the pipes?" she asks. He asks for a wrench. Yes, it's about that interesting.
Non-Magic Bus. Hiro and Ando are being driven around in the Black Van of Bad Guys. There's a slick-looking guy in the back with them, and I think we're supposed to assume that this is Linderman. I never thought that, though, because I'm a spoiler whore, so I totally know who this guy is and why he's kidnapped the boys. Hiro says that he has a special power and he's on a mission and the unctuous guy says he knows all about the power and the mission. Then he speaks in Japanese and says that Hiro's wrong to think he's on a mission to save the world. Hiro's all, who the hell are you? Unctuous Guy says that he works for a man with real power and that this man knows precisely what Hiro is up to. He then hands them two first-class tickets to Tokyo. Ando perks up at the sound of "first-class," but Hiro shoves the tickets away, saying that they can't let temptation take them away from their mission. He says that he is pure of heart and can't be tempted and when he meets the Big Boss, he'll tell him exactly that. Unctuous Guy's like, yeah, I'd like to see how well THAT works out for you.
