Later during the episode Thanksgiving Samuel watches Chandra Suresh's film then refuses to reveal Charlie's whereabouts to Hiro.

Advanced Human PowersEdit
Samuel has the power of terrakinesis, the literal power to control the earth and earth itself. Samuel has displayed the power to control the ground beneath him and the ability to control ink.
Samuel's power manifested even before his birth, which is so far unheard of throughout the duration of the series. At the moment of his birth there was a massive earthquake at the research facility Coyote Sands, Chandra Suresh kept a tape recording his theory about how Samuel's power is affected by other 'specials' magnifying his power. Samuel did not know about how powerful he could be until, he found out by eavesdropping on a conversation between Mohinder and Joseph Sullivan.
Samuel's power is very diverse, allowing him to make great sinkholes, leveling buildings as well as remotely controlling small rocks, which he uses to kill Joseph and Mohinder, until Hiro goes back in time and straps a flak jacket onto Mohinder.
