Chapter Three: One Giant Leap
In the barren wasteland that is the Nevada desert, Claire digs up a skeleton wearing a bizarre ring. “DL, you son of a bitch,” she says under her breath, “You actually did it.” Then it’s all business as she attacks the true task at hand: burying the two dead bodies stuffed in the trunk of her car.
Chapter Three: One Giant Leap
Moral, mental, and social advancement for good deeds. That’s the philosophy Jackie lays out to Claire’s dad as the political platform she hopes to ride all the way to school president. Claire winces at her co-cheerleader’s lies about rescuing a man from fire and at the way she flirts with her father.

Two days have passed since Hiro was last seen in the offices of Yamagoto Industries of Tokyo, Japan.

Chapter Three: One Giant Leap
At Nathan Petrelli’s campaign headquarters, Peter tries to speak with his brother about his inability to fly again, but Nathan wants him to keep this to himself as busy staffers bustle about shoveling paper and false sincerity.

Chapter Three: One Giant Leap
Eden finds Mohinder tense and sweaty and desperately in need of sleep. For days, he's stayed awake trying to crack the strange code found on his father’s portable hard drive.

Chapter Three: One Giant Leap
Simone wants to sell Isaac’s paintings so she can get him into rehab with the money, but he refuses on both counts.

Hiro finds a spot indicated in the comic book where a truck is about to smash into a young girl. Ando doesn’t believe it, but then a group of girls approach, including one with a red bow in her hair, just like in the comic.

Chapter Three: One Giant Leap
Niki stops at her mother-in-law Paulette’s house to confront her about calling social services to take Micah away. Niki defends herself by throwing DL in Paulette's face, but Paulette insists that “DL is a good man.” Niki has evidence to the contrary. She shows Paulette the strange ring worn by a man that DL and his crew murdered. Paulette stands firm in her belief that DL was framed and is glad that he escaped from prison. Niki doesn't care. She wants Paulette out of Micah’s life and threatens to tell the cops where the bodies are buried if she calls social services again.
Chapter Three: One Giant Leap

In yet another room, the walls are scrawled in psychotic writing with the words “forgive me” smeared in blood.

At a bonfire party after a victorious game, football quarterback Brody woos Claire to some out-of-the-way bleachers for a clandestine make-out session. When he goes too far she tries to stop him, but he won’t take “no” for an answer. He throws her off the bleachers and onto the ground where he muffles her screams as he tries to rape her.

At a fundraising event for his brother, Peter runs into Simone and confesses that he’s been in love with her since the minute they met.

Thoughts from the bar patrons plague Matt’s mind as he tries to drown his own sorrows, but when he focuses on a man sitting alone, the voices instantly silence and Matt crumples over to the soiled barroom floor.

Peter Petrelli’s eyes blink open, drawing to a focus in a hospital room where brother Nathan sits by his side. The fog slowly lifts from Peter’s brain, but Nathan sweeps it back by telling his kid brother that he’d tried to kill himself, that neither of them flew, that Peter landed on a fire escape and Nathan climbed up and got him, and that “the rest is just crazy talk. You understand?”

Claire Bennet of Odessa, Texas, tentatively approaches her father with one thing on her mind: her birth parents. His words wrap softly, protectively around her in carefully measured tones. “It’s an adult decision… keep things light and fun… Trust me. I actually know a few things,” he says with a dark undercurrent in his voice.

In the quaint little hamlet of Brooklyn, New York, Suresh returns home to find an exterminator busy at work… installing a telephonic bug. Suresh swipes at the guy with a small statue, clubbing him across the head as the man lashes back with his fake exterminator gear. “Who are you?” Suresh demands. The exterminator produces a gun, but Suresh is unafraid, shoving the man into the hall where the gun goes flying, skating across the floor. The exterminator bears down on the professor, but a female neighbor snares the gun, and the man goes running.

New York City… it’s a town that never sleeps, that never stops. It’s a town that Hiro Nakamura traveled to all the way from Japan through the sheer force of his will. While that may be odd, there’s something even weirder in a magazine stand. Hiro spies a comic book called “9th Wonders.” This wouldn’t be so strange on its own, but this is no ordinary comic: on the cover is a picture of him standing in Times Square with his arms outstretched… a snapshot of a moment that happened minutes before.

Breathless, Hiro flips through the comic book – it chronicles every moment of his life, starting the previous day. On the back page is a picture and address of the artist, a one Mr. Isaac Mendez, otherwise known as the junkie who had the unusual talent of being able to paint the future.

Simone tends to Isaac in his dark and dingy lower Manhattan loft. Sweaty and shaking, Isaac tells of a terrible vision, a vision of a white light flashing and all of Manhattan destroyed in the single thunderclap of atomic hell.

Niki Sanders of Las Vegas, Nevada, has problems of her own. She returns to waking life on the “set” of her home business. Though bathed in blood, this is the least of her concerns, because the bloodied bodies of two gruesomely murdered men rest eternally in her ramshackle room. She grabs the video camera that saw it all, locks the garage, and calls her son, Micah, to say she’ll be around to get him in five minutes. In her car, she plays back the tape, but all she sees is static crackling underneath the sound of terrible screams. Interrupted by her cell, she picks it up and answers: it’s Micah, and four hours have mysteriously gone by.

Suresh’s neighbor is devastated to learn of his father’s death. They had become good friends, close even, perhaps closer than he was to his own father. Suresh asks her to tell him everything his dad ever told her.

Police officers join the school principal to meet with the cheerleading squad to find the girl who walked into the fire. No one comes forward, but the officers pick Claire out of the line. Before Claire can say anything, her friend Jackie steps forward, claiming that she was the hero.

Later in the day, Claire’s friend Zach tells her that the videotape they took of her trying to hurt herself has vanished from his backpack. As they walk through the football field, a football player accidentally smashes into the petite Claire. Her shoulder is dislodged from its socket, but immediately snaps back into place. The whole team gathers around, confused that she wasn’t hurt.

Niki returns home with Micah, sending him inside to pack up his things while she goes to the garage to attend to the horror inside. But when she opens the door, the place is spic and span, nothing amiss, not a drop of red in sight. What she does find is a set of keys and a convertible parked outside. Taped to the steering wheel is a note to follow a map in the trunk. She opens the trunk, and true to the note’s word there is a map… resting on top of the two corpses.

Peter’s mom visits her son in his hospital room, asking what he was doing up on the roof. He won’t say. She changes the subject, “There’s something you need to know about your father’s death… he committed suicide.” When Peter was 23, his father was diagnosed with a major depressive disorder linked to delusions of grandeur, invincibility, and other flights of fancy. There’s something else she never told him: “You were always my favorite.”
Hiro arrives at Isaac’s loft. No one appears to be home when he steps inside, but a trail of blood leads to a cold gun. As he ponders the silent steel, a group of police race in with guns pointing squarely at the young man from Tokyo. But the most shocking thing of all is Isaac’s dead body, the top of his head neatly sliced off like a serving bowl, his brain nowhere to be found.

In sunny Los Angeles, police officer Matt Parkman is on the scene of a serial killer’s latest production, even if he’s just helping to string up the yellow tape. Voices swirl inside Matt’s head as he stands there thinking about his failed bid to make detective. “Please don’t hurt me,” a young girl pleads in a voice that only Matt can hear. While two detective wonder if “Sylar” is behind this, Matt steps into this house of death, glancing at the body of a dead woman pinned to the staircase with a series of knives, and a dead man frozen solid with his skull neatly sawed off. Matt follows the voice in his head to a room beneath the stairs where a little girl shivers with terror.

Suresh and the neighbor play back his father’s phone messages. They’re all mundane except for one: On the tape, a sinister voice intones that he can see Suresh standing over the phone, that Suresh has handed “these people” to him. “What have you done?” Suresh’s father asks on the tape. The reply is sinister, to say the least: “You’ve given everyone of them to me… a sacrament.” Suresh tells his neighbor that he once found a tape of a conversation his dad had with a man named Sylar. The neighbor then finds a portable hard drive in Mohinder-the-lizard’s cage. Suresh opens the files and discovers the reason behind his father’s death: the old doctor had come up with a way to locate those who had taken the next evolutionary step.

Outside the house, two detectives ask Matt how he knew where the little girl was. He tells them that he heard a voice and thought everyone else did as well. When they see how fidgety he is, they ask if he has “someplace better to be?” He admits that he and his wife have a couples therapy appointment. As he shifts his weight, he hears the thoughts of the two detectives: “This guy’s worthless. Cut him loose. He got lucky.” He turns to leave but one holds him back, accusing him of setting up the murder to make himself look like a hero. “I didn’t kill these people,” Matt says, “Sylar did.” The detective asks how Matt knew that name when only six people assigned to the case know it. His answer fails to please, and Matt is immediately put under arrest.

Following the map, Niki is led into the desert where she finds a shovel stabbed into the earth. She does the natural thing, digging until she hits something buried beneath the sand… the remnants of a human face staring up at her with ghastly, Munchian eyes.

Claire’s father sits his daughter down with the news that the adoption agency is going to try and get in touch with her birth parents and arrange a meeting. It’s a lengthy process and might take weeks, though he hopes it will take years so “you can be my little girl a little while longer.” He sends her off to get ready for dinner and presses “play” on a video camera, watching the tape of her jumping off the tower and running through fire.

Nathan finds his confused younger brother on a building’s rooftop. Peter was so sure that Nathan flew to protect him but now… now he feels like he’s going crazy. Peter begs his brother to give him a straight answer, threatening to jump if he won’t. Swallowing pride or ego or his own protective shell, Nathan tells Peter, “We both flew.” Peter doesn’t believe it: “You’re lying to me again!” But Nathan isn’t lying. Peter looks down to see himself hovering four feet above the roof.

What the police really want to know is what Hiro did with the man’s brain. But before that, they’d like to know why he has no passport, no ID, and no American money, but he does have an honorary membership card for the Merry Marvel Marching Society. Hiro tells an interpreter that he can “bend the space-time continuum.” To prove this, Hiro has them call his friend back in Tokyo whom he left behind the day before. But when they get him on the phone, Hiro’s friend tells them that he hasn’t been seen in five weeks.

Hiro is shocked to learn that it’s November 8 and not October 2. A rumble in the distance distracts everyone’s attention. In unison, they turn their heads just in time to see a nuclear blast rain hell over New York City. Hiro closes his eyes, furrows his brow, and wills himself to return to that Tokyo subway car from which this journey began.

High atop a New York office building, Peter Petrelli spreads his arms, wind fluttering his jacket, preparing to fly. With a final breath and a prayer, he makes the leap. The ground rushes up to meet him, but then another face appears, and then the sound of a woman’s voice wakes Peter from his dream. Simone Deveaux wonders how long her father has for this world. Peter, the dying man’s nurse, gives the old man two more days of life. Simone is grateful for Peter’s dedication; to her father, Peter is more like a son than a nurse.Across the world in Bombay, India, Dr. Mohinder Suresh concludes his lecture on the human genome project. With wonder in his voice, he explains that the project has discovered tiny mutations in the human species’ genetic code, changes that are taking place at shockingly rapid rates.The class is cut short when a colleague brings Suresh some terrible news: His father was killed while driving a taxi in New York City. Suresh doesn’t believe that his father’s death was an accident; he believes his dad was murdered because of his theories on human evolution. Arriving at his dad’s apartment, Suresh begins looking through his father’s research when he hears a man’s voice in another room. Suresh grabs what he can and flees the apartment before being discovered.

In Las Vegas, Niki Sanders is hard at work, stripping in front of her webcam for a not-so-satisfied customer. When the stranger on the other side of the ether runs out of credit, Niki dons a robe and checks on Micah, her gifted son, to see if he’s ready for school. Their morning ritual is interrupted, however, when she spies two goons at the front door. Grabbing Micah, Niki races out the back, burning rubber before they can be detected.Odessa, Texas is not the type of place where miracles happen, but something out of the ordinary has occurred nonetheless. Sixteen-year-old Claire Bennet videotapes her 80-foot free fall from the top of an industrial tower. Though all her bones are shattered and knocked out of socket, she simply pops them back into place and walks away without a scratch – it was the sixth time she’d tried this.

Nathan Petrelli is a busy man, a man on the make, a man in the middle of a fierce political campaign, a man who doesn’t have time for brother Peter’s dreams about flying. Nathan fears that Peter’s delusions will lose him the election. A call from their mom interrupts their conversation… she’s been arrested for shoplifting.The second hand of his clock ticks by the contemplative eyes of Hiro Nakamura in his workaday cubicle. He closes his eyes and concentrates, his brow crinkling into a wrinkled mass. The second hand stops, ticks backwards, and continues on its circular way. With a shout, Hiro runs to his friend to tell him the news: He has successfully manipulated time and soon he will learn to manipulate space.A private school is no place for the poor, or so it would seem when Micah’s principal tells Niki that her son is being shown the door, no matter that Niki wrote a check for $25,000 to get him in. With Micah out of school, tuition past due, and loan sharks coming after them, it would seem that Niki has run out of options, that there is no one looking after her to protect her in this dangerous time.Mrs. Petrilli thinks it’s “no big deal” that she was arrested. After all, the police dropped all the charges. Still, Nathan is furious at her for stealing a pair of socks when their dead father left her a fortune. Nathan takes off, but Peter stays behind to find out what’s going on inside his mom’s head. The answer is simple in its honesty, “I just wanted to feel alive again.”

A fire rages at an Odessa cotton mill. With camera running, Claire races into the flames and rescues a man trapped inside. Even though fire hungrily eats through her clothes, she remains unharmed. As firemen descend to check on her, she turns and runs from the scene.Nathan offers Peter a job coordinating volunteers for his campaign, but instead of responding to this offer Peter brings up their earlier conversation about flight. Nathan doesn’t want to hear anything more about that and tells his brother, “It’s time for you to grow up.”Outside the campaign office, Peter climbs into a taxi commanded by Suresh, wondering aloud about the solar eclipse that is about to blanket the world in darkness. Suresh drops Peter off and picks up another fare, a man who reads Suresh’s name from his taxi license and begins talking about the “retired” professor from India. Realizing that this mysterious man may have had something to do with his dad’s death, Suresh runs from the cab, fleeing into the anonymity of the New York City streets.After dropping Micah off at her mom’s, Niki returns home to find her apartment turned upside down, but there’s worse. Much worse. The two goons grab her, throw her down on a bed, and demand a payment of 50 grand. One of them makes her a deal: Start stripping to lower her debt. An unwilling Niki begins to disrobe, but when she stops, the goon smacks her across the face and everything goes black.Simone arrives at her boyfriend Isaac’s loft to discover him madly destroying canvases he doesn’t remember painting. He admits that he was high on heroin at the time, but even that can’t explain how these paintings have accurately predicted events that had yet to happen at the time of their creation. Feeling that he’s coming unhinged, Isaac decides to go cold turkey. He kicks Simone out, handcuffs himself to a water pipe, and throws the key far from his grasp.

In Tokyo, Hiro remains convinced that the power of his mind enables him to bend time and space, and the coming of an eclipse only fuels this obsession. His disbelieving friend challenges him to materialize in the women’s bathroom of a local bar. Though Hiro mysteriously accomplishes this seemingly impossible feat, his friend still doesn’t believe him.Returning home from the fire, Claire has but one question for her mom: Who are my real parents? Before she answers, Claire’s father returns home; it’s the same man who caused Suresh to flee his cab.Niki comes to in a pool of blood. Blinking her eyes back to full consciousness, she finds that the two goons have been brutally slain. There seems to be no explanation for this, until her reflection in a mirror motions for her to be quiet about what just transpired. There would be nothing out of the ordinary about this, except for the fact that Niki was standing completely still while her reflection moved on its own.On the Tokyo subway, a poster of New York sets Hiro to dreaming, but it’s no dream when he closes his eyes, opens them again, and finds himself in the middle of Times Square.Simone collects a vial of morphine from her father’s house and takes Peter with her to Isaac’s loft. When they arrive, they find that Isaac has sawed off his handcuffs in order to free himself from the cuffs and get a fix. While Simone dials an ambulance, Peter notices a painting of himself flying, but there’s something more shocking to come: Isaac reveals a painting of New York City consumed by fire.

High atop a New York office building, Peter Petrelli spreads his arms, wind fluttering his jacket, preparing to fly. With a final breath and a prayer, he makes the leap. The ground rushes up to meet him, but before he hits the pavement, his brother Nathan suddenly appears and takes flight, grabbing Peter and holding onto him in midair.
