He’s been trying to pass his detective’s test to move up, and this ability helps him get on the case of tracking a serial killer they call Sylar. Meanwhile, Mohinder’s neighbor Eden rescues him from an intruder, and they hear a conversation between Mohinder’s father, Dr. Suresh, and Sylar on the answering machine.

Isaac’s girlfriend Simone doesn’t believe he can paint the future and leaves him because of his drug use. Nikki has lost hours in her blackout and covers her tracks by burying the bodies of her attackers in the desert.
