|Griffith Park Carousel|
Claire, Noah, and Stephen talk.
|Location:||Los Feliz, California|
Stephen Canfield arranges to meet his wife at the Griffith Park Carousel, but she never shows up.
Stephen calls his wife and arranges to meet her at the carousel. Later, when Claire visits the carousel, she finds Stephen sitting on one of the chairs, sulking. Upon asking what was wrong, Stephen states that his wife never showed up. Noah Bennet appears, gun trained on Stephen, and tries to make a deal with Stephen, giving him freedom and having him kill Sylar in exchange with his ability. Stephen refuses, and with nothing left to live for, throws himself into his own vortex.

- The Griffith Park Carousel was built in 1926 by the Spillman Engineering Company. The structure was brought to Griffith Park in 1937.
- There are 68 horses on the machine. Each horse is carved with jewel-encrusted bridles, detailed draped blankets, and decorated with sunflowers and lion's heads.
- The band organ that accompanies the carousel (a Stinson 165 Military Band Organ) plays over 1500 selections of marches and waltz music. It is said to be the largest band organ for a carousel on the West Coast.
