Nick watches the eclipse, and sees the samurai disappear. Now standing in front of Whitebeard's deadly army, Nick retreats hastily and stops time. He manages to teleport into Otsu, Japan by accident, and ends up embracing the entirity of the flames around him. He manages to save a woman, and takes her to a safe haven.
Nick and Ryoko, the woman he saved, walk through the plains of Japan, when they are suddenly surrounded by a group of armed bandits. Nick collects their weapons and causes them to retreat. Ryoko grows weary of Nick, and runs away from him. He resumes his quest, and stumbles upon Kensei and Hiro once more, watching Kensei get attacked by the same armed bandits.
Realising that Hiro has beaten him to his quest once again, Nick comes to the conclusion that he must be in the present to stop Hiro's heroism. He returns to the present, appearing in the Burger Bonanza in New Orleans, LA. He stands at the counter, and orders himself a burger from a woman. He chows down, when he is asked to pay - with no money, he is thrown out.
Nick wakes up in the middle of the street by the woman from Burger Bonanza - she tells him that her name is Monica. Offering to help, she leads Nick to the back of the fast food restaurant, and hands him free food. Nick munches away, and thanks her for her assistance. She returns to her work, and Nick sits down at the side.
Much later on in the day, Nick has fallen asleep, only to be woken up by a sudden argument between Monica and a man. Nick stands up, and rushes around to the entrance, only to see the man stumble out. He follows the man, and holds him up against the wall, threatening him never to return to the store. The man retreats, and Nick prepares himself to leave.
Nick travels to the airport, and asks for a ticket to England. He receives said ticket.
He gets off the plane, and realises that he has actually gotten off too early - he is in Philadelphia, PA. The plane flies away, and Nick thinks about buying another ticket, but finds that he has no money left. Entering the city, he finds $100 on the floor, and decides to rent an apartment for the night.
Falling asleep, as he thinks about teleporting directly to England, he opens his eyes and sees that he is in his room. He sits at his computer, only to realise that there is no internet. His television melts, and he contemplates watching a DVD on the computer - only to see multiple copies of Signs. Realising that he is having a nightmare, he tries to work his way out of it, but remains stuck in the hallucination until the room returns to normal. He walks out, and sees a man leaving room 9.
Nick gives up, and decides that he has to return to his home. He prepares himself, after watching two men exit the apartment - Nick recognises both as Matt Parkman and Nathan Petrelli. Nick closes his eyes, and disappears.
Reappearing in his school within the common room, he appears stood on a table. Tom, Andy and Alex stare at him in disbelief, and Tom asks him about where he has been. Nick fails to come up with an answer, believing the date to be November 9. Alex tells him that it is now March. Nick worries, and grabs Tom, trying to get an explanation for this. Tom says that its Nick's ability. Alex reveals to Nick that they all have abilities since he last saw them - Tom has telepathy, Andy has phasing, and Alex has telekinesis.
Nick finds this great, and shakes hands with both Tom and Alex, when they suddenly appear at Kirby Plaza. Nick watches the litter fly about, and Alex asks where they are. Tom explains that they are at Kirby Plaza, which Alex remembers from Tom's stories. Nick picks up a notice, which discusses an evacuation plan by Homeland Security. Nick wonders what has happened, and then sees the date - June 14, 2008. Nick and Tom look at each other, mutually realising that they've entered another dark future. Alex looks around, and sees a man leave a building - it's Andy.
Nick asks Andy what is going on, and he tells Nick, Alex and Tom that a virus was released to the world, and consequently 93% of the world's population was killed. Andy explains that their friends (citing Raouf, Ashley, and Becky), died from the infection. Nick realises that he has to change the past, when Andy explains that he is a member of the CDC. Hazmats suddenly exit the building, and apprehend Nick, Alex and Tom.
Now back in their original timeline, they realise that they are now, in fact, in a hospital. As they look around, Nick sees a man who he recognises from a few days back. Tom and Alex warn him not to strike, as Tom tries reading the man's mind, only to be forcefully shifted out. Nick, Tom and Alex continue following him, when he enters a room where Matt and a little girl are. As they ready their attack again, a woman slams them into walls, knocking the three out (although Alex tries to apprehend her).
Tom manages to escape from the guards after the explosion, and returns back to England as he eludes capture. Taking a plane back to his homeland, he returns to school and waits for Nick to return; but he does not.
One month later, Tom has resumed his studies, and talks with Alex and Andy about their lives so far. Tom reveals to them that he has the ability to read minds, and presents them with evidence when he hears their thoughts. The bell rings for their next lesson, and Andy says that he has music. As he leaves, he tries opening the door - but his hand phases through.
Another month afterwards, Alex has since discovered that he can move objects with his mind, and Tom vows to form a superhero team. Andy reminds him that they are already members of Team Annihilation, and that they should be fighting crime somewhere. Before they can, however, they decide to do their homework.
Eventually, they do form a superhero team, and enter the local mall, where Alex manages to apprehend a potential thief. Tom uses his ability to pull information out of the thief's head, and Andy calls the police. Together, they celebrate their victory over crime.
Nick, Tom and Alex wake up in the hospital, where they find no-one else around. Confused, they search through the complex, entering an office as they do. They find files dedicated to a group of twelve, when they see an assignment on a table about a cheerleader called Claire Bennet. Nick remembers her to be "the cheerleader", and they prepare to leave the hospital.
Outside, they are in Hartsdale, NY and Nick grabs both Tom and Alex, teleporting them inside a car, next to a Dominican male. Nick notices Gabriel, while Alex looks at the Dominican female. The male kicks the three out of the car, leaving them stranded in New York.
Nick, Alex and Tom stroll through New York, when Nick shouts that he has had enough with his constant adventuring, and he simply wants to return home. Tom tells him that he has to follow through with it in order to stop the dark future from happening. Nick reluctantly agrees, and grabs both Alex and Tom, teleporting them.
Appearing in a house, they hear a woman refuse to tell two men what they want to know. Alex overhears the location of a virus - Primatech Paper Co. in Odessa, TX - and tells Tom and Nick, who remember that they've been there before. They conclude that the virus came from there, and the three teleport.
Now in Primatech Paper Co., they appear in the lower levels, and search through the constant passageways, which are seemingly never-ending.
Nick, Tom and Alex find a vault, and they figure that something important is inside. He starts opening the vault, when alarms set off and they hear the sounds of agony from down the hallways. Without any option, Nick, Tom and Alex run around the corner and quickly hide, when the two men walk past them. While they wait, Nick hears Hiro's voice, which irritates him. Matt arrives and ends up being thrown down the corridor. Nathan walks past Nick, Tom and Alex, and confronts Peter. As this happens, Alex figures that they have got the virus sorted, and requests to return home. Nick grabs Tom and Alex, and they disappear.
Unfortunately, the teleportation goes wrong, and they appear at the end of an alleyway, when Nick looks down the corridor and sees a familiar face - Sylar.
