Primatech Paper Co. is a paper production/distribution company located in Odessa, TX. Unknown to the local populace, Primatech is actually a front for the Company: an evolved human-tracking organization at which Mr. Bennet is employed. Inside the company's warehouse is a secret high-tech medical facility, as well as several modern offices - a stark contrast to the old wood paneling in the public entrance.

About

Seven Minutes to Midnight

Mr. Bennet gets out of his car and goes inside the facility. He swipes a card and enters a secure warehouse. Inside the warehouse is a small building where Eden is waiting for him. Mr. Bennet and Eden McCain discuss Isaac Mendez's withdrawal from heroin. Mr. Bennet enters the modest living quarters in which Isaac is being kept. The talk about Isaac's powers of precognition, including his prophetic paintings. Isaac does not want to take any more drugs.

After bumping into Lisa, Mr. Bennet walks into a hallway and finds his daughter, Claire, who has a "paper emergency". He directs Claire to the paper sample room, and directs Eden to coerce Isaac to inject some heroin, after which he paints a new painting.

Homecoming

Mr. Bennet is not pleased with the somewhat abstract red man on fire that Isaac has painted. Attempting to sway Eden to convince Isaac to retake drugs, Mr. Bennet shows Eden photographs of some of Sylar's victims, including Charlie

Six Months Ago

The Haitian brings Eden to Mr. Bennet. Despite Eden's best efforts to use her powers, the Haitian suppresses them.

Fallout

Eden waits outside Sylar's cell for Mr. Bennet to arrive. Mr. Bennet enters the secure room as Eden waits outside. Mr. Bennet tells Sylar that his abilities won't work here. They tensely discuss his name, his former occupation, intuitive aptitude, having multiple powers, and Claire.

Outside the cell, the Haitian listens to Eden implore Mr. Bennet to let her persuade Sylar to kill himself, but Mr. Bennet refuses. Eden enters Isaac's room, and they discuss the message, the explosion, and Eden's plans to leave. She discretely hands the painter a cell phone and security key card. She then heads for Sylar's cell, in an attempt to carry out her plan. It backfires: Sylar pulls her through the glass and threatens to kill her. Instead, Eden turns the gun on herself.

Godsend

A SWAT team raids the building because Matt believes they are hiding Sylar. When he's not found, Elisa Thayer scolds Matt, who was spotted on the surveillance camera staking out the building, and suspends Audrey for going on no evidence, only Matt's hunch. Matt then pins Mr. Bennet to the wall and tells him he knows Sylar's hiding here and he will find out where. Mr. Bennet responds by saying "good luck with that," and walks away.

The Fix

Hank examines a comatose Sylar in the holding room, and is later murdered when Sylar revives.

Hana learns that a shipment of pneumatic syringes is destined for Primatech.

Company Man

Ted and Matt debate whether to confront Mr. Bennet at Primatech or at the Bennets' home. When they hold the family hostage, they demand to know what purpose Primatech serves and what Mr. Bennet's real job is. Matt and Mr. Bennet go to Primatech to ostensibly gather evidence and files from a secure room. Mr. Bennet also retrieves a tranquilizer. Leaving, Mr. Bennet confronts the Haitian about his conspiracy with Claire.

Parasite

In the medical facility, Thompson questions Mr. Bennet about Claire's whereabouts as Matt telepathically listens in.

.07%

The Company holds Mr. Bennet, Matt Parkman, and Ted Sprague in secret cells. Realizing Matt must be nearby, Bennet communicates with him by thinking "loudly" to him.

Five Years Gone

Bennet is testing a young boy to see if he is an evolved human. When tested positive, he tells the boy's parents about having a new life to protect their son, while Hana gives them fake documents for their identity. Future Hiro asks Bennet for the help of some of those he turned to him for protection, but is turned down. Ando tells Bennet that Future Hiro saved his daughter, changing Bennet's mind to "see what (he) can do". Later, while waiting for Bennet, Future Hiro and Ando are surprised by Matt and his team attempting to capture the two. Peter stops time and teleports the two to Las Vegas. After ransacking the building and killing Hana, Bennet is questioned by Matt of the location of Claire, and kills Bennet after getting the answer.

Claude arrives at the entrance lobby of Primatech to turn in his report on Fusor's case, when he is surprised to learn from the secretary of Haram's early retirement and that his trainee Mr. Bennet has already been promoted to being his partner.

Truth & Consequences

Through telepathy, Peter obtains the location of Strain 138 from Victoria Pratt: Primatech Paper in Odessa, TX. Later, he and Adam travel to Primatech Paper to find the fatal virus, but are stopped by Hiro Nakamura, who stops time and engages Peter in battle.

Powerless

Peter is lead by Adam through the Primatech Paper Company's entrance. Peter puts off the facility, believing it doesn't look like a place where the Shanti virus would be stored, but Adam lets him know the paper company is a cover and all the important stuff is three floors down. Before Adam can finish explaining, time stops and Peter looks around quizzically. He turns to see Hiro and asks him why he is there. Hiro tells Peter Adam murdered his father and he must pay for what he did. As Hiro unsheathes his sword, Peter makes electricity in his hand and raises it threateningly at Hiro, saying he won't let him hurt Adam. Hiro charges at Peter, sword raised over his head, and Peter fires the bolt at him. However, Hiro teleports out of the way and reappears close to Adam. Hiro asks Peter why he is helping Adam, and Peter's response is Adam is his friend. Hiro explains Adam was also his friend 400 years ago, but he betrayed him at the very end, just like he will betray Peter. Hiro runs to Adam's frozen body to slash him, but Peter stops the sword from going any further. Peter tells Hiro Adam used his blood to heal his brother. Hiro pleads with Peter, again mentioning Adam killed Kaito, but Peter is adamant and reminds Hiro Kaito had Adam locked away thirty years ago. Hiro teleports again and Peter searches the room for him frantically until he reappears behind Peter, holding the sword to his neck. Peter says he's been to the future and that the Shanti virus is going to be released today unless he and Adam stop it. Peter shocks the blade, knocking Hiro out and allowing time to resume itself. As Adam looks on in confusion at Hiro's unconscious body, Peter tells Adam Hiro said not to trust him. When Adam asks what he felt about that, he responds with, "Let's go destroy the virus."

Peter and Adam walk down the hallway leading to the vault, throwing, zapping, and slicing their way through all of the guards. Adam says the virus is near and asks Peter to take care of the alarm, which he does by firing a bolt at it. They finally reach the vault door and Peter asks how they are supposed to open it. Adam suggests Peter use his brain to do so, leading Peter to begin ripping the door open.

Nathan and Matt touch ground at Primatech Paper in Odessa, their means of transportation being Nathan's ability of flight. As Matt jokes about the ride, they spot Hiro at an entryway, excited to see them both.
