Matt gets a security job. This leads to a shoot-out with Jessica and Matt pocketing $2m in diamonds. Claire wants to meet her bio-dad, but Meredith’s not so keen after blackmailing $100k out of him. Mohinder and Sylar track down a guy who liquefies solid objects. Sylar gets there first, scalps him and takes his place. And Ando helps a showgirl retrieve a bag. The Matt and Niki stories speed up, Mohinder becomes central to the plot, and Claire’s search for her bio-parents comes to a tragic resolution. The disappointment is Hiro’s thread, which comes to a total standstill.
