|The missing painting|
Simone Deveaux shows Peter Petrelli a digital image of the missing painting.
|First mentioned:||Better Halves|
|Owned by:||Mr. Linderman|
|Current status:||destroyed by Nathan Petrelli|
While Isaac and Peter work together to figure out the meaning of "Save the cheerleader, save the world," they discover that Isaac's paintings can be arranged to tell a story like a comic book. Once this is done, there is a missing piece in the upper-left corner of the full picture. Isaac says that he painted a piece the correct size, but that Simone has taken that painting to her gallery. Isaac claims he cannot describe what was in that painting because he was high when he painted it.
Peter leaves a message on Simone's answering machine saying that he needs to see the painting because it will help save the world.
Peter asks Nathan to help him get the painting back. Nathan contacts Mr. Linderman by phone. Nathan tells Peter that Linderman will not return the painting.
After Nathan Petrelli bought the painting from Mr. Linderman, Simone Deveaux shows it to at Isaac's apartment. Nathan asks if it's the only copy and then destroys it by splashing black paint over it. He tells Simone he's trying to save Peter's life.
Simone then asks Peter to meet her at Isaac's. She shows him the ruined painting and tells him what happened with Nathan. Peter asks her to describe the painting and that lives are at stake. She shows him a digital image of the painting which was sent along with it, and tells him that she's located Union Wells High School in Odessa, TX.
- Given the size and shape of the missing painting, Hiro and Ando's absence from the scene, and the order of events in Homecoming, it's fairly clear that Peter has assembled the paintings in the incorrect order.
- Tim Sale said that he had a conversation with Santiago Cabrera about Isaac's influences. Santiago felt that the artist Francisco Goya and his Black Paintings series would be a good basis for the style of some of Isaac's paintings including the one of Peter in front of Union Wells at Homecoming.
Simone shows Peter a digital image of the missing painting. Peter determines to go to homecoming to save the cheerleader.
