Peter Petrelli is woken from a dream in which he shows Simone’s father his ability to fly. When he gets out of bed to answer the knock on his door, Peter is surprised to find Simone. She tells him that her father died an hour ago – after telling her about flying with Peter. When Peter asks Simone about Isaac’s paintings, she reveals that someone named Linderman bought them; knowing that Linderman has invested heavily in his brother’s Congressional campaign, Peter seeks Nathan’s help. After patching up his relationship with his wife, Officer Matt Parkman tries to return to his day-to-day job with the LAPD, only to find himself again pulled into the FBI’s hunt for Sylar. Another victim has been found – a charred body that looks like a normal burn victim, but is emitting enough residual radiation to treat the corpse as hazardous material. A fingerprint match is found, leading them to a man named Ted Sprague. But Parkman is alarmed when he realizes that he and his FBI contact are going in without backup – and possibly without anyone else knowing where they’re going. They find Sprague’s home trashed, with everything from photos to ceiling fans burned and melted, flooded with radiation. Sprague is tracked down to a local hospital, where he takes a hostage, but Parkman uses his ability to read thoughts to resolve the situation peacefully. Niki Sanders awakens to find that her ex is gone, and has apparently taken her son. She realizes that the only way to get her son back may be to let Jessica – the woman who looks like her in the mirror, and seems to take charge when she’s in danger – take over again. On the road, D.L. and Micah argue about leaving Niki behind, but stop when they see a car on fire in the road. Another car pulls up to help, this one driven by Hiro and Ando. D.L. pulls an unconscious woman from the car, but not before the flames reach the car’s gas tank; Hiro uses his ability to stop time just as the tank explodes, and gets D.L. and the woman out of harm’s way. But with Jessica hunting them down, and Micah manifesting his own unusual abilities, they won’t be able to run forever.
