Meanwhile, armed with the knowledge that she can't die, Claire is taking matters into her own hands because she wants to hurt "him" the way he hurt her. I'm guessing the "him" she's referring to is Sylar, so I'm not quite sure how she can hurt him. This seems to be the catalyst that sends her down the dark path we see her on in the future. And from the promos for next week, it looks like we're going to see more of Dark Future Claire. Remember when she was just the cute, sweet cheerleader that they needed to save in order to save the world?
Matt is still stuck in the African desert and I'm beginning to worry that this story will become as long and involved as last season's Hiro-lost-in-time snoozefest. Strangely enough, his guide has the same paint-the-future power that the departed Isaac had complete with weird white eyes syndrome. Even stranger -- Matt was able to do the same when he put the headphones on while painting. What in the world is playing on those headphones?
Finally, Tracy/Niki/Whomever is trying to piece together the incredibly strange parts of her life and how they intersect with women who look exactly like her. This little journey took her to New Orleans and Micah (and a coffin containing Niki's body) and then to Los Angeles and a Dr. Zimmerman. She knocked on his door, but he didn't seem too surprised to see her. He just wasn't sure which one she was, and when she pressed him about the fact that he knew her, he told her that he created her!
