It is man's ability to remember that sets us apart. We are the only species concerned with the past. Our memories give us voice. They bear witness to history so that others might learn. So they might celebrate our triumphs. And be warned of our failures.
When the clock turns back four months for all of the heroes, Nathan pays a terrible cost for his heroic actions. While Peter survives his detonation over New York City, The Company "bags" him as a threat to the world, eventually leading to violent confrontation with Elle and The Haitian. D.L. makes the ultimate sacrifice for Niki and Micah Sanders. Maya horrifically manifests her dark powers for the first time, driving her and Alejandro to America for help. A mysterious, yet familiar face is introduced.
For it is the cruel irony of life that we are destined to hold the dark with the light, and the good with the evil. Success with disappointment. This is what separates us, what makes us human. And, in the end, what we must fight to hold on to.
