|Neither Claire nor Mr. Muggles are buying H.R.G's tired excuse.|
|After the disintegration of Primatech and the destruction of Pinehearst, HRG had put his "business trips" behind him until a few reports started trickling in... and some of them sounded a little too familiar.|
Joe Macon is working late at his Pittsburgh insurance company one Friday evening and uses his ability of imprinting to sign documents. He interrupted by a shadowy figure who asks if the firm has any clients by the name of Gray. When Macon refuses to tell him, Sylar attacks.
On Sunday, at the Bennet house in Costa Verde, Claire finds a note from her father saying that he has gone out of town on business. She calls him, unaware that he is in Pittsburgh at the insurance company. She is upset and reminds him that the last time he claimed to be out of town on business, he was working with Sylar. He tries to reassure her that Sylar is dead and claims he is about to go into an urgent meeting. Claire is still suspicious but her mother arrives home and so she ends the call. Meanwhile, Bennet finds blood in the company elevator and finds Macon dead in his office with his brain removed.
"Do you insure anyone named Gray?"
"We can't disclose client information."
"Well maybe I can just pick your brain?"
"Don't 'Claire Bear' me, Dad!"
