Gray & Sons
|Gray & Sons|
Gray & Sons is a watch and clock repair shop in Brooklyn, NY.
Gabriel Gray works on fixing a watch he has been working on for seven years. Chandra Suresh enters, and Gabriel fixes his visitor's watch, telling him that he has the ability to automatically know how things work. Chandra confronts him about Sylar's potential status as an evolved human. After Chandra doubts Gabriel's powers, Gabriel contacts Brian Davis to come to the shop. Shortly after Davis enters, Gabriel announces himself as "Gabriel Sylar". After Davis reveals his telekinesis, Sylar murders Davis with a large quartz crystal.
Gabriel, wrought with guilt from the murder of Brian Davis, attempts to hang himself in the back of his shop. However, Elle arrives just in time and uses lightning to sever Gabriel's noose as he is hanging, saving his life.
- The picture of the clock on the front window depicts the time 11:53, which is a reference to the title of a previous episode, Seven Minutes to Midnight.
- Coincidentally, there is a real watchmaker's shop called Gray & Sons, based in Miami Beach, FL.
- In the ninth episode (called "Seconds") of the fourth season of the animated series The Batman, there is a villain who can travel backwards in time and has a watch repair shop called "Gray and Sons".
- The quartz crystals, such as the murder weapon, are used in watches because they have the ability to create a pulse effect. This is what keeps watches ticking on a regular basis.
The storefront's logo prominently displays the time 11:53.
Elle Bishop visits the shop...
...and shows Sylar her broken watch.
