|Lauren knows Tracy's the only hope for thwarting Samuel.|
|Tracy Strauss wanted to help people with abilities. People who were forgotten or mistreated because of who they were. People like her. Tasked by Samuel to find Eli, a man with the ability to replicate, Tracy thought she'd found a calling only to discover Samuel wanted Eli for his own purposes. Accompanied by a few replicated Elis, Tracy has since set out on her own path.|
Ricky practices his ability on one of Eli's clones, which then dissolves after being struck. Tracy and two other clones of Eli compliment him, and one of the clones says that now this is his new home. Then, Ricky, Tracy and Eli clones approach the house of training where they see other evolved humans train. Tracy thanks the clones for their help, and they say that they must return to the "prime"--that it is not good for them to be away from him for too long.
Later, Tracy meets Angela Petrelli at the Burnt Toast Diner, telling her that she should be understanding and to think what might have been had her sister had this type of facility instead of Coyote Sands. Angela responds by giving Tracy a check and telling Tracy that she would give her thanks for Tracy to never to contact her again.
Back at training camp, Eli or one of his clones is talking with Ricky that he could now leave with him to a place with more purpose. Tracy interrupts them and asks what Eli is doing. When Eli then sends Ricky away, Tracy tells Eli that Noah and his daughter are in danger because of Samuel and him. Eli responds that Samuel has plans for all of them, and that only Noah and Tracy stand in the way. Then an invisible person creeps up behind Tracy. The person grabs a knife and prepares to stab her with it.
