Nathan heads into his mom's hospital room, where she's putting on her about-to-go-to-jail coat, and asks why she's confessing to something she didn't do. Mama Petrelli's had an attack of conscience, saying that Nathan was right about her. He wants to help her, but she wants to advise him instead: "Just because you shaved doesn't mean you're clean and sober. You still have to get yourself into a program. Get your family back. Don't let your children hate you. Not if you can help it." Getting in as much mothering as possible before she has to go off to the clink, I see. As for the confession, she says she's committed enough sins that getting punished for this one that she didn't do won't matter. She also recognizes that Nathan's really just looking for redemption for himself, and trying to help her will only get him killed. And she's not up for losing another son. They hug, and Matt and Fuller return to cuff her and stuff her.
Maya and Alejandro's little traveling party just keeps growing. Maya and Sylar sit in the back seat, while Alejandro rides shotgun and Derek wonders why Sylar's traveling so light. "I got robbed," Sylar says, his voice returning. He says he was out there for three days. Alejandro has Maya ask Sylar where he's going, and he says he's going home to New York. Maya excitedly says they're going to the same place. Sylar politely asks if they're visiting family there, and Maya demonstrates her secondary superpower: that of not being able to shut up. She busts out their battered Spanish-language edition of Papa Suresh's book, Activando la Evolucion, and tells Sylar that's who they're looking for. That's got Sylar's attention, to say the least. "This is a coincidence," he understates. He says he knows Dr. Suresh himself, and that they're old friends. "You helped me, now I can return the favor," he says. "I can take you to him." Maya's beyond thrilled as she translates for Alejandro, but her brother isn't so sure this is a good sign. Maya asks Sylar's name. He looks at his watch. The crystal is cracked and the hands are stopped at 11:53, hiding part of the name on the dial, so that for a second, I think he's going to tell them his name is S__ar. But he just tells them his real name, Gabriel Gray. "Like the angel," Maya gasps. There's an angel named Gray?
