Noah considers how he can rebuild his relationship with Claire while at his apartment going over the newspaper clippings with Lauren. He doesn't know of any way to find Samuel, and Lauren warns that he's beginning to sound obsessed. She suggests he calls Claire and use her compass, but Noah refuses and snaps at her. He tries to apologize without success, and Lauren finds information on Vanessa Wheeler, the girl who grew up at the estate that fell into a sinkhole. Lauren finds footage on a security camera showing Samuel with Vanessa. They get Vanessa's California area code and Noah calls her. He introduces himself and says he wants to locate Samuel. Vanessa says she doesn't know anyone by that name, and when Noah points out that he grew up on her family's estate, she hangs up. When Noah prepares to leave for California, Lauren wishes him luck and walks out...

Episode Quotes
Noah: Look at her. How do I explain to her about the world without dampening her spirits? Now she sees it filled with promise and hope, as bright as the light in her eyes. But I've lived long enough to know that everything is not as it appears. Evil does exist. People do terrible things to one another. How do I protect her without losing her? How do I build a bridge between us… when the distance seems so vast?

Matt: You know, some days maybe you just can't save the whole world. Maybe you're better off getting your own house in order.

Mohinder: You can use your red lightning.
Ando: Look, Hiro once saw a future where I killed him with my red lightning.
Mohinder: Was it in Florida?
Ando: Japan.
Mohinder: Then we're good to go.
