Claire prepares for the Union Wells Homecoming Dance
|Date of event:||October 10, 2006|
Tragic events occur at the Union Wells High School Homecoming game and dance.
The day before Homecoming, Claire Bennet is voted Homecoming Queen by her the students at Union Wells High School. It turns out her friend Zach asked his friends to help her win. Later, her father grounds her from the game and dance. Unknown to Claire, he did so out of her protection from Sylar. Claire eventually sneaks out with the help of Zach.
At Union Wells, Sylar, mistaking her for Claire, attempts to take Jackie's brain in the locker room of the school while the rest of the school is at the halftime show. After leaving her dead body, he is confronted by Peter Petrelli who is dedicated to save the cheerleader. Sylar hurls locker doors at him, and they struggle to the top of the bleachers of Union Well's courtyard. Sylar and Peter fall off the bleachers onto the cement below. After Sylar flees, Peter mimics Claire's regeneration and comes back to life.
While on the run from Flint and Knox, a powerless Peter tells Claire to go home so she can be safe. Claire refuses, stating that he once came to save her (referring to the night and Homecoming), and now she must return the favor.
Noah is talking on the phone with Sandra and tells her that he wants to be at school for Claire's Homecoming. Noah informs Lauren that he wishes he could tell Sandra that he's missing Claire's Homecoming because he's trying to stop a serial killer.
