There are nearly seven billion people on this planet. Each one unique. Different. What are the chances of that? And why? Is it simply biology, physiology that determines this diversity? A collections of thoughts, memories, experiences that carve out our own special place? Or is it something more than this? Perhaps there's a master plan that drives the randomness of creation. Something unknowable that dwells in the soul, and presents each one of us with a unique set of challenges that will help us discover who we really are.

Meanwhile, it is revealed that when Noah Bennet, driving his car, had been stopped at the roadblock, Claire Bennet and Angela Petrelli were not actually in the vehicle. A little while previously, Noah had realized the construction crew roadblock was a set-up, and had Claire and Angela leave the car, resulting in only Noah's capture. From there, Claire and Angela head to the Capitol building in Washington D.C., where Angela informs Claire to find her father, Nathan Petrelli. Angela says she had dreams of the future, and leaves to go find Matt Parkman; she says that Nathan will be in trouble and that Matt will be able to save him.
