Angela Petrelli comes to visit Sylar, who is restrained in a Level 5 cell and kept on sedatives. She removes the sedative field and removes the arms restrains, and says that she can provide him with the love and guidance a son needs from his mother. Sylar insists she isn't his mother but she informs him that he gave her up for adoption but now she'll take good care of him. She calls in a woman, Bridget, and explains that she has the power to read an object's past by touching it. Angela notes that Sylar will need to be strong for what comes ahead and then leaves Sylar and Bridget alone. As she walks down the hall, the sound of Bridget's screams echo throughout the place...

Episode Quotes
Mohinder: (opening voiceover) In the ongoing search for self, there are days when we learn something genuinely new. Something uncovered, hidden, that we never knew was there. Something that surprises us. And on that day of self-discovery, the question remains: what kind of person are we? Does the hero or the villain inside us win the day?

Angela: Noah, we just let a dozen criminals out into a world that is grossly unprepared to deal with them.
Noah: So your solution is to send a psychopath after the psychopaths.
Angela: He is the perfect partner. And he can't be killed anyway, you know that.
Noah: He's a murderer.
Angela: Then you and Gabriel have more in common than you care to admit.

Hiro: You're telling us your plan? What kind of overconfident nemesis are you?
Daphne Millbrook: You're 0 for 2 against me, Pikachu. That's just regular confidence.
Hiro: Pikachu?!?

Hiro: Go away. We were here first.
Daphne Millbrook: You can't call dibs.
Hiro: Can to. Dibs.

Knox: Why did you come? You must have had a dozen chances to get away.
Peter: You were going to hurt people. I couldn't let that happen.
Knox: Now I know you're full of it. No one's that noble.

Noah: I told you to stay put!
Sylar: You told me that to make sure I wouldn't, didn't you?

Tracy: Do you know me?
Dr. Zimmerman: Know you? I created you.

Mohinder: (closing voiceover) And as the search for self continues, we look for answers everywhere. In nature, in God, in tiny tragedies that may never be understood. But still, we are driven to it. Single-minded on one goal, to find ouir purpose on this Earth. No matter what the ramification... the friendships that may be hurt... or the deals with the Devil we need to make.

Abilities Development
Sylar: Sylar gains the ability to project sonic blasts by speaking from Jesse, and the ability to read the past of an object by touching it (aka psychometry) from Bridget.
Usutu: Can grant others the ability to share his visions of the future, by using a ritual involving a certain drug or food along with tribal music.
