I watched this live from Philipsburg last night with my brother. The episode was set five years into the future and focused on Hiro and Ando, and what everyone else has become.
It turns out that Syler was the bomb that destroyed NYC. Nathan becomes president and starts arresting anyone with powers. Once Suresh tells him they cannot be cured, Nathan wants them to be killed.
Parkman and the Haitian work for Homeland Security, and they are trying to arrest Hiro, who is considered a terrorist. Parkman gets now-Hiro, but future-Hiro and Ando get away. They visit Peter in Vegas who is now dating Nikki, who lost Micah and DL, but also Jessica as well. Peter has his kickass scar.
Mr.Bennett is helping people with powers start new lives and Parkman knows about it, but lets him do it, so that Mr.B will tell him about really dangerous ones. After Parkman fails to capture Hiro, he forces Mr.B to tell him where Claire is living. He arrests her and takes her to Nathan.
They argue a bit, and then Nathan says something weird about how everything was complete after he met Candice and then Claire is forcibly stopped and she turns around. Nathan shimmers and becoms Syler. He cuts her head open and now he is all powerful.
Later, future-Hiro, Peter, and Ando storm the building where present-Hiro is being held. Peter and Hiro are so badass. Suresh kills the Haitian because he wants Hiro to go back and kill Syler.
Future-Hiro gets shot, and Nathan shows up and starts to fight Peter, but Peter knows something is weird because Nathan used DLs powers. Nathan turns into Syler, and says that he was upset that everyone blames him for the bomb, when in reality it was Peter. They start to fight, Peter’s hands turn red and get all fiery and Syler’s turn blue and get all icy. Or was it the other way around? Oh well, not important.
Hiro and Ando return to the present and Hiro knows he now must kill Syler to stop everything.
Let me know what you guys thought. There were all sorts of other little things in this episode.
