Storyline

Under the guidance of Usutu, Hiro has a vision back in time one year ago to determine what forced Arthur Petrelli to fake his death and create Pinehearst. In the past, Hiro also watches the early days of the Company and how Mr. Petrelli and Mr. Linderman founded it, and their falling out with Angela who saw them as a threat to both Nathan and Peter. Also in the past, Meredith Gordon's origins are shown of how she was captured by Thompson to work for the Company, and of life of crime with her half-brother, whom is the blue-flame fire-starter Flint. Also, Sylar makes a discovery about his powers when he meets Elle for the first time and how she inspired him to kill in order to steal others powers. Written by matt-282

Quotes

[first lines]
Mohinder Suresh: A child is born to innocence; a child is drawn towards good. Why then do so many among us go so horribly wrong? -... - What makes some walk the path of darkness, while others choose the light? Is it will? Is it destiny? Can we ever hope to understand the force that shapes the soul? -... - To fight evil, one must know evil. One must journey back through time, and find that fork in the road where heroes turn one way and villains turn another.

Good flashback.
27 September 2019 | by billykennedyiii-46628See all my reviews

This is a good episode for exposition and flashbacks. The only question I have is I don't know if it's ridiculous or very typical that as a assistant DA Nathan is indicting Lindermin yet less than a year later he takes $4 million from the Lindermin group as campaign funding.
