Mohinder helps Monica realize her ability in full and is asked by Bob to give Monica the Shanti virus so that they can experiment with it. Mohinder refuses and destroys the viles with the virus. Bob later apologizes to Mohinder for asking him to do such a thing and introduces him to his new partner Niki (who appearantly is cured) who will be watching his every move. Monica returns home and Bob gives her an ipod with moves she will be able to copycat.
Maya with Alejandro and Sylar reach the American border (finally) but are stopped by the border police. At a moment of anxiety, Maya releases her deadly ability and the three of them manage to escape and reach American soil unharmed. In a fight between Sylar and Alejandro, Maya defends Sylar. Then Sylar tells Alejandro (in English of course which he can't understand) his plans for his sister.
Peter and Caitlin travel to Montreal in hopes of discovering something about Peter's past and the woman that killed Caitlin's sister. There in a room they find a note with his name and a man named Adam Monroe as the writer of it (the same man whose file Bob was holding in the Company and for whom he told Mohinder he is dangerous). At a moment of confusion Peter travels in the future (14 June 2008) where he and Caitlin witness an abandoned and empty New York appearantly from a virus.
Overall it is a good episode. The highlights are Peter's visit to the future where we see the result of the virus being released into the general population and Takezo's change of character in this episode (and the reason for it). Key facts: Adam Monroe will play a major role for the rest of the volume. Also notice Maya's first use of her ability with her will and how Sylar is slowly turning Maya away from her brother. Sylar's talk with Alejandro is a memorable ("shiny new toy"). Enjoy!
