Claude starts to leave and Peter's all, you can't hide from me! I'm... I'm going to follow you! Yeah, that's it! Claude's all, dude? I wouldn't recommend that. I'm one feisty Invisible Man over here. I'll get all transparent on your ass. Now bugger off, Little Boy Bangs. He stalks off, knocking into people and trash cans as he goes. Peter materializes out of thin air as soon as Claude's a good distance away. And he looks like crap, by the way, which is a nice continuity touch.
Meanwhile, Niki's in a padded cell, wrapped in a straightjacket, as God intended. An orderly sticks her in the butt with a needle loaded with what I hope is a whole lot of antipsychotics. Niki immediately starts to relax and loll around on the floor. Speaking of lolling around, Matt and Mrs. Matt are doing some lolling of their own. They're lounging on the sofa as Matt reads his wife's mind. If you'll excuse me, I'm going to go to the kitchen and get myself some grain alcohol while this scene plays. Tell me when it's over, will you?
Thanks. I'm back. Bennett checks on Sylar, who's now strapped to a table in his cell as Henchdoctor gives him the once-over. Sylar is twitching and sweating and looks generally awful. But he's shirtless, so none of that is really important, now, is it? Bennett enters and Henchdoctor tells him that Sylar's vitals are really irregular. "After all we've done to him," says Bennett, "I'm not surprised." He tells Henchdoctor to keep Sylar alive, no matter what. "If he crashes, you bring him back, again and again," says Bennett. "When he dies, it'll be on my terms, not on his." Sylar twitches some more, and we can see that there's a little white thingy poking out the back of his head. I don't know what it is yet, but people really shouldn't have white plastic thingies sticking out of their heads, so I'm thinking that whatever it is ain't good.
Cut to Hiro and Ando at a parking lot, arguing with the attendant about how one day of parking can't possibly cost almost fifty bucks. Welcome to New York, dudes. It costs fifty bucks just to get out of your apartment in the morning. Hiro tries his constipation face on the clock, trying to turn it back a few minutes so they don't have to pay the exorbitant parking fee, but nothing happens. "Darn," he mumbles in Japanese. Ando gets the car keys and Hiro whines that his power is lost until he gets the sword. Yes, we know. Hiro says the sword focused the old samurai's powers and it will do the same for him. Uh-huh, we heard that one too, dude. Ando's all, but if you don't have the power, how can you steal the sword? Hiro's not sure, but he knows that he has to get the sword because it's his destiny. Yep, we're clear on that one as well. Thanks for repeating your plot to us, though; we might have been in the bathroom removing lint from our bellybuttons during the entire last episode.
