Peter's back in the closet looking for the gun when Matt appears, holding it in his hand with an accusing look on his face. Peter tries to dissemble, talking about how the medics are calling Nathan's recovery a miracle, and saying that the bullets hardly did any damage. "Like his body had already healed from the inside." Matt won't be deterred, however, asking how Peter knew where to find the gun, and pointing out that there was no reason for Peter to believe the gunman left it behind. Which brings up another issue: Why did he stash it? Even if he had planned on replacing his present self rather than doing it on the fly, he could have just teleported the gun away, especially given that it took him several precious seconds to hide it. It seems contrived. Through jarring camera cuts and dissonant music, we're then meant to know that Matt is trying to penetrate Peter's mind, but it seems like Peter is able to ward off the attack, which causes Matt physical pain, much as when his own father repelled his mental probe. Peter then sneers, "You had to go and be the detective, didn't you, Matt?" Well, it has always been pretty important to him. Peter's face then morphs to that of Future Peter, which I'm guessing means that among the powers he has is Candice's illusionism. Matt's floored, and Future Peter tells him he came back to stop Nathan from telling the world about them. "Now that you know, you can't be here." He raises a hand, and Matt flies toward him and then disappears. Peter may not have his shirt off, but that was still hot. Future Peter emerges from the closet, and as he heads toward us, he changes his appearance back before we cut to a commercial break.
