For more about Angela Petrelli, see the main article.
Angela calls Noah and gives him the assignment of killing Tracy Strauss as she has been responsible for the murders of several Building 26 agents. She asks him why he has been avoiding "Nathan"'s calls and Noah corrects her, asking if she means Sylar. Angela claims they did what they had to do but Noah admits he thinks it was the wrong move. Angela ends the conversation by telling him to get the company started again.
Angela has lunch at Kojin Sushi and is shocked to see Sylar walk in, dressed like Nathan. He kisses her on the cheek and apologizes for his lack of manners. Angela awakens from this dream just as her car arrives at the restaurant. "Nathan" walks in and apologizes for being late, just as he did in her dream. Angela discusses Noah's lack of cooperation with them and Nathan tells her that he will take care of it. He then confides in Angela that he hasn't been feeling like himself and Angela tells him to get a sports car and a younger woman just like his father did.
Knowing something is wrong with "Nathan", Angela calls Matt Parkman and pleads with him to reinforce the Nathan persona onto Sylar. Matt refuses and tells her that he has quit using his ability. Angela tells him that there is no such thing as quitting and hangs up after Matt once again refuses her request.
Angela brings a box of old possessions to "Nathan" in his office and invites him to relive some childhood memories. She watches as he examines the items and smiles. After learning that he has been talking to Millie about Kelly, Angela goes to speak with "Nathan". He tells her all he knows about what happened the night she died and Angela tells him that she made the Haitian erase his memories so that he could forget. "Nathan" asks if Angela is going to let Millie think that Kelly ran away because she was a horrible mother and Angela tells him that if it protects her family then yes, she will.
Angela later has dinner with Millie and apologizes for "Nathan"'s behavior. She tells her that he hasn't been himself lately and Millie tells her not to worry about it. She receives a phone call but then tells Angela that it wasn't important and proposes a toast, to "closure".
Angela meets Peter at his apartment for dinner. While Peter is talking to her, she seems distant and preoccupied with thoughts of Nathan, who has failed to join them. The two eat dinner and Peter tells her that he has to go to work. Angela tells him that she will stay in his apartment a little longer in case "Nathan" is running late.
At Nathan's office, "Nathan" asks Peter why nothing happened when he disappeared for a week and why Angela didn't say anything. His secretary Elizabeth says that Angela told her he was going on vacation and asked to clear his schedule. René arrives and asks to speak to Peter alone. He tells Peter that Angela wants him to remove his and Nathan's memories, but René says he will not do it. Saying that Angela is blinded by her emotions and that there are some lines that should not be crossed, he gives Peter the key to a storage facility and tells him to go alone.
Angela arrives at Peter's apartment and wishes him a happy Thanksgiving. She has caterers come in and set up their food while she talks with Peter. Peter informs her that he went to her storage locker and saw Nathan's dead body, and Angela guesses that The Haitian told him about it. She creates a lie about a shape shifter who stole Nathan's appearance but Peter insists that Nathan is dead. "Nathan" appears, also wanting to know the truth, but Angela tells them that all she wants is to have Thanksgiving dinner together as a family. Nathan puts out his arm, blocking Angela's path and startling her, but Angela warns her sons that if they don't eat with her, then she will leave and they will never, ever, hear from her again.
The three of them sit down and Angela asks Nathan to say grace. He tells her that he knows that he is dead and demands to know what happened. Angela gives in and explains that she had a precognitive dream that Nathan's life would be in danger, and tried to get Matt to save him, but they were too late. On her orders, Matt transferred Nathan's mind into Sylar's body but Angela insists that "Nathan" is still Nathan in the eyes of the world, and offers her sons some pie. As she goes to pick up the knife, Nathan grabs her hand. He tells her that he knows she only sees Sylar when she looks at him and wishes that he had never gone to Texas. As his body begins to release electrical arcs, Peter grabs Angela and she cowers behind him as Sylar regains control of his own body.
Sylar telekinetically holds Angela and Peter down in their chairs while he eats and mocks them. He praises Angela for her efforts in raising the evil bar a little higher and kisses her on the mouth, to her disgust. He then begins to slice open her skull and Angela screams in agony. Suddenly, Sylar stops, and Angela calls out for Nathan to overpower Sylar and protect his family. He regains control and asks Angela what she has done to him, before running out and flying away. Peter tells Angela that he is going after him and will to bring Nathan back, but Angela does not believe that this is possible.
Angela comes to visit Peter at his job. She tells him that there are five stages of grief and that Peter needs to skip the denial phase and move to the final phase: acceptance. Although Nathan died months ago, she knows that Peter still thinks that Nathan is alive in Sylar's body and asks how Peter is planning to bring Nathan back. René comes in behind Angela, and Peter explains that he intends to borrow René's ability to stop Sylar. Angela tells Peter to think about what he's doing but his mind is made up. When Angela asks what will happen if there isn't a Nathan to get back, Peter says that he will settle for revenge.
Later when Nathan is saying goodbye to Peter, Nathan gives Peter a message of love to pass on to Angela. In the evening, Peter and Angela share their grief over Nathan's death.
Angela attends Nathan's funeral and listens on as Peter presents a eulogy. Claire arrives and stands by Angela. Once Peter finishes his eulogy, Angela is presented with the American flag by a funeral lieutenant in Nathan's honor.
Angela talks to Peter at Nathan's wake. He says he's doing okay, but she doesn't believe it. He snaps at her briefly and then admits that he is full of anger. She figures that he wants revenge on Sylar, but warns against it, saying that she couldn't bear to lose him, too.
Later she sees Claire looking at some family photographs, and Claire comments that there is no photo of her because Angela didn't want Nathan to acknowledge an illegitimate child. Angela admits to Claire that she's worried about Peter and feels that he needs Claire to lean on. She tells Claire that Peter is on the roof listening to a police scanner, and asks Claire to help him.
Angela walks into Peter's apartment and begins to ask him where he would like to go to lunch. She stops talking when she sees Emma in the room. Peter tries to introduce them but Angela does not respond. After Emma makes a quick exit, Angela warns Peter about Emma. She says that she will kill thousands of people, and that it would be a "bloodbath". Peter presses her for details, but Angela claims that her dream was foggy, but tries to impress upon Peter that he is not the one who can save her. As she begins to leave, Peter replicates her ability. She stops, and tells Peter that although most people would view dreaming the future as a blessing, it is in fact a curse.
Angela lets Peter into her apartment and says that she is sorry that she had to call him over. She tells him that Nathan's epitaph is needed, but she can't bring herself to write anything solid, knowing that it will be etched in stone. Peter talks more about Emma and the prophetic dream they both shared. She tells him that, even if Sylar appeared to help Emma, that doesn't mean that he's changed. She warns him about what happened to Nathan, but Peter tells her he must go, regardless.
Angela meets with Tracy Strauss at the Coyote Sands and admits that she is shocked that Tracy disappeared to teach the younger generation about how to use their powers. Tracy retorts that if Alice knew how to control her power, then things would have been very different. Angry, Angela hands Tracy a check and tells her to never contact her.
Angela dreams that Samuel succeeds in his plan to destroy New York. When Angela awakes, she notes that however many times they save New York, something else will always come along to try to destroy it. She thinks about how she has detached herself from her family by trying to save them and that every action has a consequence. She then thinks about Claire on television exposing abilities to the world, noting that they saved it, but it still changed.
In 1963, in West Greenwich Village, New York, Angela sits in Uncle Ira's club with Charles, Daniel and Bobby. Angela tries to explain a metaphor to Bob before Charles tells them he is trying to listen. When they discuss a musician's musical talent, Angela tells them that her dreams rarely make sense and that they were the reason she was brought here. A man approaches and asks in Japanese, if Angela would like to dance with him. Charles, who speaks a little Japanese, translates and tells her that his name is Kaito Nakamura. Angela accepts the offer and the two dance. Angela tries striking up a conversation with Kaito, but he does not understand her, nor her him, so the two just dance. When police enter and try to close down the club, the musician, Chris Coolidge, begins to attack. Angela registers her displeasure with strong language.

However, Kaito tries to stop Chris from doing so and he pushes Angela out of the way when she tries to get in his way. Seconds later, Chris is shot dead.
After the group purchases Primatech Paper, Angela offers Kaito a job and she says that she noticed that Kaito knew something bad was going to happen.
Angela visits Mindy Sprague in order to evaluate her on her recent TMI assignment. Angela tells Nathan to take Ted into another room, which he happily does. Mindy expresses her dislike for Alfred Washburn as he continuously mistakes her name for someone else's. Angela reassures her that everything will be alright.
Later, following Mindy's energy overload and the sudden change in weather, Angela calls Alfred Washburn in order to know how Mindy and Ted are doing. Later, Angela discusses Mindy and her ability with the other founders. Angela states that bringing in Mindy would be worthless as she and Ted have gone off the grid and no one has been able to find them. Angela is then introduced to Maury Parkman.

She asks him to help Peter and notes that John has been seeking a purpose. She tells him that she knows about his crush and asks him to help her. John wonders if he has a choice, as he knows that Angela has probably dreamt of his response.
