During dinner in his new home, Noah and his family talk about their new lives as "The Butlers". He receives a phone call on his cell phone, and speaks with Mohinder about bringing the Company down once and for all.
Noah enters the kitchen, and Claire tells him that he may be able to hide who he is, but that she can't. Noah explains that his job is to keep their family safe no matter what it requires. Claire understands and tells him that it must be difficult to live such a normal life after the life he was living before. Noah tells her that their current life is a nice vacation compared to before. After Claire leaves for school, Sandra picks up a newspaper and shows Noah an article about Kaito Nakamura's death. Noah tells her that he knew this would happen, and shows Sandra an old painting from Isaac Mendez depicting Kaito laying in a pool of blood. He tells her that it's part of a series of eight paintings, but that he was only given the first one and needs to find the rest of them.
At Copy Kingdom, Claire tells her father that her car was stolen. He takes the opportunity to tell her that he needs to be able to trust her and that she can't afford to make mistakes like this or else she'll be found. She tells him that she may be missing an opportunity to help people, but Noah retorts that he's protecting her because if someone gets a hold of her she'll be in for a life of agonizing tests and research.
Noah calls Mohinder and asks if Mohinder's trip was productive. Mohinder replies that he'll have the answer very shortly. Mohinder explains that it doesn't appear he's raised any suspicion and that Bob seemed more disappointed in himself for having trusted Mohinder so completely, however that they're going to watch him more closely from now on. Noah tells him that he'll find the rest of the paintings himself now and that Mohinder's given him just what he needs. Noah greets a customer, the Haitian, welcoming him to Copy Kingdom.
Claire reads Activating Evolution, and Noah mentions that Sandra is making waffles. He apologizes for talking to her the way he did, and offers his help. Claire asks what would happen if someone found out about her, and Noah mentions they'd have to leave at a worst case scenario.
Later, Noah receives a phone call from Mohinder. Mohinder finds Isaac's paintings, and takes a picture of the 8th picture in the series and sends it to Bennet. Bennet receives the picture, and it is of Bennet, lying dead with cracked glasses and a couple kissing in the background. Noah turns and sees Claire. Noah tells her goodnight, and she walks away. Bennet looks at the picture of the painting again in fear.
Noah looks at the painting depicting his death, thinking about what could have happened. When Sandra walks in, Noah asks her if she knew anything about Claire, if she had met a boy. Claire enters the room, and the two ask her if she has met anyone, assuring her that there aren't many people they can trust. When Noah asks to meet him, she claims that there is no boy.
At dinner, Sandra suggests going out dessert. Claire claims she can't go, because she has to go to the library. Noah offers her a ride, but she turns down his offer and says she'll walk. As she leaves, Noah follows her out the door. When she turns the corner and he catches up, she is gone. That night, Claire comes home late. Noah is waiting up for her, and again mentions the boy. Claire again denies it, and reassures him by telling him that she joined the cheerleading squad. When she finally gets him to calm down, he makes her agree to one thing: She can join the cheerleading squad, but she cannot date. When she exits, the Haitian enters, and reveals to Noah that he'll have to go to Odessa, Ukraine. Noah states that he'll think of something to tell his family.
Noah and The Haitian arrive in Odessa, Ukraine. Noah receives a phone call from Mohinder stating that he wants to turn Molly into the Company in hopes that she will get better. Though Noah tells Mohinder not to do this, he goes ahead with it anyways.
Mohinder explains Bob's plans to Noah on the phone. Noah tells Mohinder that he has to take the risk, or else they will get rid of him and they will lose everything they've worked for. He explains that they have to do bad things sometimes in order to take down the Company.
In Odessa, Ukraine, Noah and the Haitian sneak into Ivan's home, then knocks him out with a gun. Noah and the Haitian have Ivan handcuffed in a chair, and Noah asks Ivan about the series of eight paintings depicting Kaito and Noah's deaths. Ivan tells him that he's retired and that he's the regional sales manager of a textile factory. He reminds Noah that he trained him and Claude, and that the Haitian can't help get information from him. Noah tells him that the Haitian can pull out specific memories from his head, and as an aging man, those memories make his life worth something. Ivan says that he won't since he's his friend, but Noah reminds him that he was his friend, and tells the Haitian to start with taking the day of Ivan's wedding from his memory. After a memory is removed, Ivan continues to resist Bennet's questions by cursing at him. Before he can show his distaste to the remark, Noah receives a phone call from Claire asking if she can borrow the car. He allows her, so long as she locks the door this time. She asks where he is, and he tells her that he's at a seminar. After Noah hangs up, Ivan asks about the rough life Claire must have since the Bennet's are hiding, and offers his old protege a chance to come back to the Company, claiming that it has changed and they have new directives. He offers the Haitian and the Bennets protection and the whereabouts of the paintings.
Later, Noah asks why Ivan never mentioned anything about his daughter to Noah, and he realizes that she died. Ivan tells her that she died of leukemia. Noah tells him that if he forgot the memories of her, she would seemingly never have existed. He tells the Haitian to take the memories of Ivan's daughter from him, but Ivan tells them the location of the paintings in a warehouse by the train yard where they tagged the liquid man. When Ivan asks if the Haitian will remove any memories of Noah and the Haitian, Noah tells him that if he did so, the Company would be onto him, so he decides to make it look like a home invasion and a senseless murder. Ivan tells Noah that he can give him a new life so he doesn't have to run, but Noah shoots him, telling the dead Ivan he knows what life he's chosen.
In the warehouse, Noah and the Haitian find the remaining six paintings from Isaac, placing them in order. The paintings depict several things, including a vial, an angry blond woman, two men sword-fighting, Mohinder firing a gun, and Noah's death.
Noah calls Mohinder, and warns him not to get too close to the company when he discovers a painting in the warehouse of Mohinder holding a company gun he is using to shoot him. Noah then returns home to Costa Verde where he discovers Claire is secretly dating West, even though Noah ordered her not to because it could jeopardize their safety. He then tells his family they're moving because of what Claire has done, but Claire refuses to go saying they should leave without her.
Noah and Claire look on as Nathan flies away with an exploding Peter over Kirby Plaza.
Attempting to avoid his own death, foretold in the Isaac Mendez paintings, Noah goes to Claire's school to try to talk with West. West unexpectedly kidnaps him as he walks out of the house by grabbing him and carrying him high into the sky. Noah convinces West that Claire is not setting him up, and West brings them down for a rough landing. On the ground, Noah tells West that he needs to break up with Claire for her own safety, but he changes his mind when he receives a call from Mohinder to meet him at an intersection where he claims to have spotted West.
Noah and West join forces to protect Claire. They go to meet with Mohinder, where they knock out and kidnap Elle. While they have Elle tied up at the Bennet home, Noah learns that Claire has been kidnapped and calls Bob to arrange a trade. During the meeting, Bob releases Claire and Noah releases Elle, who walk by each other. West tries to fly Claire away, but when Elle shoots them down with a lightning bolt. Noah then shoots Elle and threatens to kill Bob, but Mohinder shoots Noah in the eye, fulfilling the prophecy in painting #8 of the Isaac Mendez series of eight. Noah dies, but he later heals and awakens on a hospital bed in an empty room with an IV in his arm. The IV bag next to his bed contains blood, presumably Claire's.
Thanks to an infusion of his daughter's blood, Noah recovers from his gunshot wound. He finds himself in a barren room strapped to a hospital bed. Mohinder comes in to check on him. Bennet tells Mohinder that he made a mistake by aiding the Company. Mohinder responds that he helped the Company save lives and stopped Noah's paranoia and violence. When Bennet is told that he was healed with Claire's blood, he panics and demands to know where his daughter is. Mohinder dryly answers that Claire is safe at home. As Mohinder leaves, Bennet shouts at him for his betrayal.
Noah Bennet has been locked in a cell by the Company and sits idly bouncing a ball against a wall. Elle walks in and watches him for a short time before asking him to tell her about her past. Her attitude and threatening remarks cause him to ignore her plea, but when she asks politely, he tells her that "They (the Company) wanted to see how much wattage you could discharge. You'd pass out from the pain and we would all want to call it a day, but not Bob. He said his little girl was stronger than that. Many parents couldn't bear to see their child suffer...well, most parents anyway." Bob walks in at that moment and is wondering what Elle is doing there. She leaves, and he tells Noah that Claire is becoming a problem. Noah smiles, but when Bob says that it's unfortunate and that they may have to take drastic measures, the grin on his face disappears.
A little time later, Noah arrives at his home, shocking Claire and his family. He says that he didn't plan any of this but has found a way to protect all of them. He has to go back with the Company, much to everyone's dismay. As he leaves the house, Bob is seen standing in the background.
Mr. Bennet and the Haitian abduct a young West Rosen from St. Louis and take him to the Primatech building for testing purposes. Mr. Bennet oversees the application of West's mark via a pneumatic syringe; he orders his staff to be gentle since West is just a child. Later, when West escapes into the ventilation shaft, Mr. Bennet finds Claire talking to him, but assures her that there is nobody inside.
After being spied on by Elle in his home, Noah steps outside and stops Eden from beating Elle up any farther. Noah tells Elle to stop spying on Claire and his family because watching over her is his job. Elle threatens Noah by saying once Claire manifests her ability, she'll be as nice to Claire as Eden was to Elle.
After pistol-whipping Elle and knocking her out in Zach's home just as she was going to electrocute Zach, Noah asks Zach if he's all right. Zach asks why his friend is here, and Noah tells Zach the Haitian is going to make sure Elle doesn't bother Zach anymore. After that, Noah and the Haitian turn to Zach and Noah asks where the tape Elle mentioned is.
Noah and his family enter Kenny's Diner and overhear Officer Cindy and another officer tell Marcus about an odd case they came across involving corpses that looked as if they had misshapen bones and muscles all their lives. As Marcus takes Claire's order of waffles, Sandra's order of pancakes, and Lyle's order of a cheeseburger and fries, Noah tells Marcus he wants to order off the menu.
That night, in a hotel, Noah tells his wife he's going for a walk, but Sandra stops him and makes him take Mr. Muggles for a walk. Downstairs, he puts Mr. Muggles in the Rogue and takes a baseball bat to the diner. He enters and heads out back to find Marcus taking out the trash. Noah tells him they met several years ago, but Marcus says he doesn't remember that. Marcus puts it off as old age, but Noah comments to himself that he knows it was due to "unnatural causes." As Noah threatens to stop Marcus from hurting anyone else, Marcus tells him he can't be stopped and lifts a metal trash can over his head, holds it for a moment, and then crushes it as if it was paper. Noah catches Marcus by the wrist as he tries to attack, commenting on how he knows his ability only works if his fingers touch what he wants to crumple, and proceeds to beat Marcus with the baseball bat until he's unconscious.
Noah heads back into the diner and calls Bob to tell him about Marcus. He accepts Bob's thanks for helping, but declines the offer to come and work for the Company again. Bob tells Noah they'll find him anyway, but Noah says they won't and walks Mr. Muggles back to the hotel.
Noah goes to sleep along with the family and wakes up the next day to continue their travels.
After showing his daughter his excellent vision, Noah and the Haitian head to Peach Pit, Georgia to bag and tag a dangerous man named Howard Grigsby who has kidnapped the Butlers. Noah arrives with the Haitian at an abandoned plantation where Howard is holding the family. The two split up to try and trap Howard, but Noah finds an unconscious Haitian outside the room Howard has the Butlers. Out of nowhere, a door opens and a bright light emanating from Howard's body blinds Noah, who manages to stumble into the room. Hearing the pleas of Mr. and Mrs. Butler, Noah aims his gun at a chandelier and pulls the trigger.
Waking up in an optometrist's office, Noah is told by the eye doctor he and the Butlers were pulled to safety by the Haitian, and Howard is being held in a Level-Five detention cell. At his home, Noah is aided by Claire in choosing the pair of glasses he needs to wear due to the weakened eyesight he received from Howard's ability.
In a dream, Piper and her sister are on the run inside a Company facility, being chased by Noah Bennet and the Haitian. Noah and the Haitian eventually catch up to them and capture Piper's sister, but Piper squeezes out of a half-open window and escapes. Later in the waking world, Mr Bennet receives a call from Piper's mother and pretends to be a doctor. When told that Piper is having the dreams again, Noah, with the Haitian standing next to him, replies that they will be right over.
Noah is in the infirmary after being shot in the eye and healed. Evsdropr arranges to have Donna Dunlap put next to Noah, and he warns her to refuse any offers from the Company. Felicia informs Bob that Noah had talked to Donna, and the Haitian removes her memory of Noah.
Noah sees Thompson, Jr. and Donna Dunlap watching him through the window of his cell. When Thompson, Jr. steps away, Noah tells Donna that it was a bad move to ignore him when he warned her to run away.
In his cell, Noah tells Sabine about the Dumont system, telling her that Julien has been kept under the Company's control for "years", being forced to clone himself for them. He adds that Julien is a "valuable asset for the Company to lose", whether he survives extraction or not. As Sabine escapes with the root Julien, she walks past Noah in his cell.
On a Company mission in West Virginia, a Company support team discuss their bosses. One of the men, Rosetti, comments that he enjoys the new regime of military force under Thompson, Jr. and Donna, as he is "sick of all that cloak and dagger bull we did under Bennet." Another man argues that Bennet always had a back up plan, unlike the "couple of kids who don't know what's what" they have to take orders from now. The team leader, Sean Fallon, remembers some of the missions he has undertaken for the Company in a flashback, including spending time in Madras with Bennet, who is on the phone to someone at the Company, and The Haitian, who is in conversation with an unknown man.
