Symbol Sightings

  • Seen again on Hiro’s katana. It is printed in gold on both the front and the back of the handle.
  • Seen on the mysterious black man’s necklace (X’s 2). Once, when taking Nathan through the parking structure and once when confronting Brody in the hospital.
  • Seen on the bottom of the unfinished painting.

Episode Analysis

  • Nathan Petrelli apparently has more experience with his power of flight than he has been letting on.
  • Nathan fell for the blackmail setup pretty easily, considering that Linderman had "owned his father". Conversely, he quickly seized the moment and blackmailed the blackmailer for an additional 2 million dollars.
  • Claire isn't going to be able to hide her ability much longer, considering that she came of a horrendous crash without a mark on her.
  • Peter was able to paint the future without the use of drugs. This seems to indicate that Isaac could do the same. He is probably using his "limitation" to justify his addiction.
  • Matt still has difficulties controlling his abilities. He can be overwhelmed in crowded places by the "psychic noise".
