Hiro and Ando have arrived in the future, five years after half of New York was destroyed in an atomic explosion – a time when Specials are hunted, registered as terrorists and forbidden to breed. Here they meet Future Hiro, who has constructed a complex timeline of the events leading up to the catastrophe in order to determine how to change the past. Future Hiro tells his earlier self to go back and kill Sylar, but Matt Parkman, the Haitian and an armed squad burst in and arrest Hiro; Future Hiro escapes by teleporting himself and Ando to Las Vegas; needing help to rescue Hiro, they try to find Peter, but his girlfriend, pole-dancer Jessica Sanders, refuses to divulge her lover’s whereabouts… Mistaken him for his future self and under custody of Homeland Security, Hiro is questioned by Matt; realising that there are two Hiros, Matt contacts Nathan, who is now the president of the United States… When Mohinder tells Nathan that his work on reversing the Specials’ condition has proved ineffective, the President considers committing an act of genocide… Future Hiro and Ando turn to Mr Bennet for help rescuing Hiro; in return they tell him that Claire is still alive, and working as a waitress named Sandra… Future Hiro and Ando are captured by Matt and his team, only to be saved by Peter… Matt double-crosses Mr Bennet, and takes Claire prisoner… Nathan gives the order to kill Hiro, then meets with his daughter, Claire; but instead of a happy reunion the girl’s head is sliced open – Nathan is really Sylar in disguise…
