Claire and Zach research the fire.
|First mentioned:||The Fix|
|Date of event:||February 28, 1992|
The Haitian tells Claire that her birth mother died in a fire fourteen years ago. Zach and Claire go to a diner to research the event. While looking through the Odessa Register archives, they happen upon an article about the fire. The fire reportedly killed seven people in a Kermit apartment building, including Meredith Gordon and her eighteen-month-old daughter.
At Meredith Gordon's home, Claire and her newfound mother incredulously discuss the fire that seemingly separated them. Claire offers that she was able to survive the fire, perhaps, through her unique ability to heal herself.
At 2 a.m., Claude enters Meredith's apartment and is knocked down by intense flames. Mr. Bennet enters and searches for the invisible man; he finds his partner as well as a young Claire. Mr. Bennet rescues the baby and firefighters put out the fire in the early morning.
- The exact cause of the fire is still unconfirmed. It should be noted that Meredith Gordon has the power to start fires, and Claude said that she "blew up".
Claude catches fire, despite being invisible.
Mr. Bennet watches Claire's nursery burn.
Claire is rescued from the fire.
