In Costa Verde, Eric Doyle confronts Claire as she comes into the Bennets' kitchen. He tells her that Rebel sent him to her to get help. Claire tells him to leave but Doyle begs her for help so that he can go back to making people happy. Sandra comes into the kitchen and is also not thrilled to see Doyle. She warns them that the agents are outside, but Doyle explains that Rebel lured them away with a fake phone alert. When Doyle wonders why they haven't arrested Claire, Claire admits that she has an exemption and Doyle points out she's abandoning her own kind.

Eric Doyle: But if there were agents outside... why aren't they kicking in the door, looking to collect a comes-back-to-life Barbie?
Danko: I want to know everything you know about Nathan Petrelli.
Tracy: He was lousy in bed.
Sylar: I guess not everybody gets old. Not everybody dies.
Samson Gray: Then you just have that much longer to suffer, don't ya?
Mohinder: (closing voiceover) Generations unfold — father to son, mother to daughter. Where one leaves off, the other follows, destined to repeat each other's mistakes, each other's triumphs. For how do we see the world if not through their lens? The same fears, the same desires? Do we see them as an example to follow, or as a warning of what to avoid? Choosing to live as they have, simply because it's what we know, or driven to create one's own identity? And what happens when we find them to be a disappointment? Can we replace them? Our mothers, our fathers? Or will destiny find a way to drive us back? Back to the familiar comforts of home?
Samson Gray: Like his son Gabriel, Samson possesses intuitive aptitude, which allows him to analyze the brains of his victims and duplicate their abilities. He demonstrates the borrowed abilities of telekinesis and sedation, but has never possessed regeneration.
