|Everything but the guilt.|
|Claire Bennet has come to an important decision in her life. She has just told her father about her fantastic ability to heal from any injury. What she doesn't realize, however, is that Mr. Bennet already knows. The mysterious man in horn-rimmed glasses has been systematically capturing individuals with fantastic abilities, both good and evil. And even his own family may not escape his agenda...|
Mr. Bennet visits Eden McCain's father's home to tell him his daughter is dead. When the man reacts with indifference, calling Eden a "cheap whore", Bennet becomes violently angry. He tells Eden's father that Eden sacrificed her life to stop Sylar from gaining her ability. He then tells the Haitian not to clean the man out completely, but to "leave the guilt".
- Upon its release, Fathers & Daughters marked Eden's third appearance in a graphic novel, making her the character with most appearances in the graphic novels at that time. She was usurped by Mr. Bennet with his fourth appearance in Wireless, Part 2.
- Fathers & Daughters fills in the "holes" of a storyline told in Fallout. The episode shows Sylar's murder of Eden. The graphic novel shows what happened immediately after the murder (and explains how Sylar was subdued once again), and the aftermath of the event.
