In Peter's apartment

The string web is set of interconnected strings arranged by Future Hiro around Isaac Mendez's apartment in the "explosion future". Future Peter, arriving from the "exposed future", also built a similar web.


Each string represents a person, with notes and newspaper clippings representing important events in their lives. A connection among the strings indicates a meeting of the people represented. After the explosion Hiro Nakamura constructed the web to help him determine at what point in time he should intervene to alter history.


After accidentally teleporting into the future, Hiro and Ando go to Isaac's apartment to seek advice on what they should do to prevent the explosion. Entering, they find the apartment wrecked, and a complex web of strings has been erected within.

He cuts some of the web to demonstrate how changing the past at a certain time would alter history.
