*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Twins Maya and Alejandro have escaped from a jail in Houndaras with an American named Derek and are now in Claire's stolen vehicle somewhere in Mexico. They stop when they see a man unconscious on ground. It's Sylar! After they pick him up, he identifies himself by his real first name, Gabriel, and seeing the book authored by his former mentor/nemeses Chandra Suresh, offers to help his co-passengers go to New York to meet him. In New Orleans, Micah gets acquainted with his cousins: one is a boy his age who loves wrestling that Macah helps illegally get a pay-per-view using his powers, another is nearly grown-up Monica who's passed a management test for her place of employment, Burger Bonanza. In New York, Mrs. Petrelli confesses to Mr. Nakamura's murder but Matt in reading her mind knows she is lying and she in turn tells him in her mind to give it a rest. Her son Nathan comes by to embrace his mom before he and Matt reveal something about themselves (revelation here: the baby of Matt's ex-wife turns out to be the child of one she fooled around with) as they look at a group picture of mostly dead members of a circle that included Nakamura, Petrelli, Bob (Mohinder's boss), and a bald man who is Matt's dad who he hasn't seen since he was thirteen. In California, while Claire had promised her dad not to make too many waves, she does lie about going to the library in order to hang with West at night on the Hollywood sign to talk about their situations. Claire comes home late and then tells about rejoining the cheerleading squad to avoid any more questions about her boyfriend. Noah than has a secret meeting with the Haitian about going back to Odessa. Back in Mexico, Derek shows Sylar at a stopover the wanted poster of the twins. Sylar instructs Derek to call the police before killing him. He then leaves with Maya and Alejandro. At her working place, Monica is told by her boss that her management application has been rejected. She later gets told to close early but someone then barges in with a gun and threatens her. However, she defeats him using a move she just saw on wrestling pay-per-view hours before. Is it possible she has powers that has her quickly learning something she sees on television? At his and Mohinder's apartment, Matt gets Molly to track his dad. She succeeds but falls into a coma as she asks Matt for help in his mind...Surprising revelations about Matt's family connections concerning his ex-wife and her child as well that about his father. Looks like Molly's his surrogate daughter. Cool new character in Monica. Nice to see Nathan clean shaven again! Isn't that burger manager the same boss of Buy More on "Chuck"? Lots of intriguing stuff for this week's episode. Can't wait for next week when "Veronica Mars" star Kristen Bell comes aboard...
