Dale receives a visit from Mohinder and Sylar (posing as Zane Taylor) at her shop. While hostile initially, she becomes more friendly when Sylar demonstrates Zane's power. She hears Sylar's heart race when she describes her own ability and becomes suspicious. She tells them she doesn't have time to participate in Mohinder's test right away, but agrees to meet him the next day. During the night, Sylar murders her and takes her power. The next morning, Mohinder finds Dale, suspended underneath a car she was working on, with the top of her head and brain removed.
Dale always wore headphones that blasted rap music, despite the fact that she couldn't stand it. It was the only thing that she found that could cancel out all of the ambient noise that would otherwise drive her crazy, as she was still learning how to control her newfound powers.
When she first realized her power, she had major headaches. She believed her head would explode from it. But once she learned to control it, she decided it was the greatest thing to ever happen to her.
"Damn. That was my best wrench."
"Well, if you've come to try to take it away from me, you're gonna have a hell of a fight on your hands."
"That sound, in your heart, what is it?"
- In the graphic novel The Natural Order of Things, Dale's surname is misspelled as "Smithers".
