Bob attends Mohinder's impassioned lecture about the virus which killed his sister. Outside the lecture hall, Bob offers Mohinder a job with the Company. They go to a restaurant to discuss matters, and Bob shows Mohinder that funds are not an issue--he turns a spoon into gold.
Abu arrives at the National Library and Archives, where he learns that he is a descendant of Pharaoh Khufu. Abu's father confirms what Abu found, but denies that Abu could have lifted a one-ton boulder that day.
Later, while sleeping in his home, Sanjog Iyer visits Abu's dreams. Abu learns from Sanjog that Ancient Egypt's Pharaoh shared his power of levitation during the building of the Great Pyramid of Giza, but knew better than to anger the gods so he kept it a secret and punished those who revealed it. Abu tells Sanjog he doesn't want to live in a place where he is punished for who he is, but Sanjog advises him to respect the secret that has remained throughout generations. When Abu awakens, he grabs an Egyptian artifact and says that Egypt is his destiny.
