Like the first season, the heroes again must band together to stop a villain from destroying the world. This time, the clue lies in the past, when Kaito Nakamura gave the infant Claire Bennet the power to be a “catalyst” of the formula.
How can they beat Arthur Petrelli when the self-serving scientist Mohinder is also racing against time to make a breakthrough for the formula?
The episode summary is safely tucked after the cut, for those who don’t want to get spoiled.
