Hiro teleports himself six months into the past, where he immediately introduces himself to the waitress at the diner in Odessa and tells her he intends to prevent her death. But while Hiro is doing that, other events that happened six months ago, each of them shaping the various heroes’ destinies, are unfolding as before. Dr. Suresh, Mohinder’s father, contacts several people who he’d like to run tests on to check for extraordinary abilities, including Claire’s father and a timid watchmaker named Gabriel. Attorney Nathan Petrelli, about to prosecute an organized crime figure connected to a powerful man named Linderman, is chased down by the mob and flies out of the driver’s seat of his car – leaving his wife to become crippled when the car slams into a bridge. Claire experiences the first major accident that leads her to realize she’s invulnerable. Niki Sanders is stunned when her father tracks her down, trying to be a part of her life again after he abandoned his family when Niki’s sister Jessica died. When Dr. Suresh’s tests reveal no obvious signs of any kind of power in Gabriel Gray, he bolts from Suresh’s apartment in a rage – after grabbing the name of another person Suresh planned to contact. When Gabriel sees that Suresh’s next test subject does indeed have telekinetic ability, he flies into a jealous rage again and murders the man in cold blood – and ends up with his power…as well as a new name: Sylar.
