[first lines]
Claire Bennet: Are you mad at me? You haven't said anything since I got in the car. Since I told you.
Mr. Bennet: No, no. I just... I've just been thinking. I have something I need to tell you, it's unfair to keep it from you any longer. What you can do... I've known about you, Claire. I knew before you knew, before you made those tapes with Zach.
Claire Bennet: You saw the tape? Why didn't you say anything?
Mr. Bennet: There are a lot of reasons but mostly I just wanted to protect you.
Claire Bennet: Protect me? All this time I've... felt so alone ...

Fallout is excellent end-of-the-year episode of Heroes
7 December 2006 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Peter is in the interrogation room questioned by FBI agent Audrey and mind-reading cop Matt. When Matt tries to read Peter's head, Peter ends up reading Matt's ending with a colliding block effect. Peter mentions that Claire, not the dead Jackie, was who Syler was after so Matt and Audrey leave to get her as Peter is left behind. Jessica hit Niki's ex-husband D.L. but the bullets went through him though Jess doesn't seem to know this yet (she must have memory loss from when D.L put his hand through her previously). The next morning, D.L. and son Macah go to a cabin to settle down just before Niki comes nearby and sees her Jessica reflection on a puddle with Jessica saying how stronger she is for anyone, especially Niki, to take her on. Jess must have figured out by this time that D.L. was still alive and takes her gun and hides it as Micah finds her, thinking it's his mom, and takes her back to the cabin. As Micah calls to his dad, D.L. kicks the door open and attempts to knock out Jessica. Sometime after kicking down Micah, Niki comes back and turns herself in the the police. Back to the interrogation room, Claire is questioned with her father witnessing stopping short of revealing her powers since her dad doesn't want anyone else to know. Claire later stops by Peter's cell to tell him what a hero he is to her while her dad confronts Syler and calls him by his real name of Gabriel Gray. He later gets orders from above to keep Syler alive though Eden, with her powers of persuasion, mentions being able to make Syler kill himself without anyone being the wiser. Eden then visits Issac and gives him a cell phone and a card. Issac calls the number on the card and gets Hiro, still at the diner in Texas. They agree to meet at a bus station. At a nearby hotel room, Issac tries to paint without drugs for the first time as Hiro and Ando watch. The result is a scene of Hiro with a sword confronting a dinosaur. Hiro looks at that and says, "I gotta get me a sword." Eden calls Mohinder in New York and confesses she lied to him, promising to tell him everything after she takes care of some business. She goes to Syler's cell and attempts to kill him, but he manages to break the glass between them and somehow quickly point the gun back at her instantly killing her. Before going home, Claire is assured by her dad that he'll take care to explain to her little brother about knowing her powers and is ordered to have the tapes Zack recorded of her to be destroyed. She does just that when Zack brings them, then goes to her brother who has no memory of the incident. Neither does Zack later on and he's now wondering why Claire is speaking to him since she's ignored him since sixth grade. Claire, now feeling alone, calls her dad who reassures her everything's all right. Just then his Haitian assistant, who was always silent previously, surprises Claire and reveals he's wiped certain memories of everyone she's been close to and was going to do the same to her but reneges this time. He only asks her, "Can you keep a secret?" During this whole time, Peter has been having dreams or visions of his brother Nathan, Syler, and now of being back in New York with all the other heroes except his brother running away from him as he begins to explode...But wait, now he's back in present time feeling normal with Nathan embracing him and some of the others coming back...Wow, what a way to end the year before the month-long hiatus! So Eden's now dead. Although I mentioned that Syler pointed the gun back at her, I now wonder did Eden purposely turn the gun around to keep him from getting her persuasion powers or did Syler manage to get some of Eden's powers before or after killing her? When Matt shook hands with Claire's dad, he didn't recognize him but on a later stakeout he did recognize his Haitian assistant with him. So how long before he figures out that his mind's been wiped by the Haitian man? And was Peter actually about to cause the bomb explosion or did he get close to that man who actually makes things burn sometime before? I can't wait to find out all these things and more come January 22, 2007!
