Overview:

Sylar takes Maya and Molly hostage and forces Mohinder to supply him with a cure that restores his abilities. Noah reaches an agreement with Bob that boils down to him resuming his job at The Company and Claire keeping quiet. Niki rescues Monica from a burning building, but gets caught in the fire herself. R.I.P. Niki. Meanwhile, Peter realizes he’s been played by Adam and destroys the lethal strain of the Shanti Virus. Hiro buries Adam in a coffin deep underground and returns to Japan. And then Nathan decides to tell the world about the superpowered population, which someone obviously doesn’t like because they shoot him. R.I.P. Nathan.

Overview:

Claire scatters Noah’s (fake) ashes and vows to reveal her ability to the world if it’ll end The Company. Sylar and Maya finally reach New York, but it’s minus Alejandro, whom Sylar stabbed in the chest. This isn’t catastrophic, though, because Maya learns to control her ability without her brother. Meanwhile, Monica tries to help Micah retrieve D.L.’s medal of honor from a gang (don’t ask), and Hiro time-travels to 1977, where he witnesses Adam’s first attempt to unleash a strain of the Shanti Virus on the general population. Hiro returns to the present to stop Adam from doing the same again, but finds Peter unwilling to let him decapitate Adam.

Overview:

Hiro goes back in time to save Papa Sulu, but Papa Sulu’s adamant about dying because it’s destiny and because Hiro’s not supposed to meddle with God’s will. After meeting himself as a 9 year old, Hiro agrees. Matt begins to harness the Parkman whammy, coercing Angela into revealing the name of the one remaining ElderSuper we haven’t already met. Bob kidnaps Claire, and Noah and West kidnap Elle. They trade hostages, but it ends with Mohinder putting a bullet in Noah’s eye. Which is as devastating as it sounds, even after we learn that someone injected Noah with a sample of Claire’s blood so he’d regenerate.

Overview:

Four months ago: Peter exploded, regenerated, and brought Nathan to hospital with severe burns. Peter then went to Company Medical, got his powers removed by a medication, and lived in a cell next to Adam. Peter and Adam escaped and healed Nathan using Adam’s blood, but Peter wound up getting Haitian-whammied and shipped off to Ireland. Meanwhile, lots of people died in the Dominican Republic while attending Alejandro’s wedding. This, however, is not as tragic as D.L. recovering from his gunshot wound and then getting shot AGAIN by some random dude while rescuing Niki from yet ANOTHER alternate personality. Because this time, he really did die.

Overview:

West makes waffles for Claire, then freaks out after learning that his abductor is Claire’s father. Hiro blows up White Beard’s camp (and Kensei), bids Yaeko goodbye, and goes back to the future. Peter meets Angela in a post-apocalyptic world in which 93% of the population have been killed off by the Shanti virus. Caitlin gets deported, and Peter inadvertently teleports back to Montreal, where we learn that Adam is Kensei. Maury visits Company Medical and manipulates Niki into going on a Jessica-style rampage. Niki breaks free of this control by injecting herself with the Shanti virus, which is quite tragic because Mohinder’s blood can’t cure this variant of the virus. Maury’s out of the picture, though, because Matt puts him in his own super-coma after helping Molly wake up from hers. And, yes, I know that’s longer than the usual overview. Sue me. A lot happened in this episode.

Maya, Alejandro and Sylar reach the U.S. border, where Maya is forced to kill four border patrol officers. Bob orders Mohinder to eliminate Monica’s ability using the supervirus; when Mohinder refuses, Bob assigns Niki (or possibly Jessica) to supervise him.
