Claire’s two mommies fret over their missing daughter, because she’s out hunting Level 5 villains. Todays’ bad guy can create black holes out of thin air and send objects into a vortex so they’re gone forever. I don’t understand how Black Hole Man isn’t the most powerful person ever, since he can essentially get rid of whatever and whoever he wants. Claire sneaks up on him with a tazer, but he responds by tossing the tazer into a black hole. The villain tells his sob story and Claire learns that maybe not all villains are so bad.
Just then a Mexican standoff ensues when HRG and Sylar bust in to capture Black Hole Man. He thinks Claire set him up with her dad, but Claire is too busy being horrified by Sylar. Black Hole Man causes a distraction with a black hole and flees, leaving Claire to work out her seriously conflicted feelings with the whole situation.
Claire and HRG track the Black Hole Man down, and HRG orders him to create a black hole and suck Sylar in it. Claire, for reasons beyond all logic, is against this. The Black Hole Man, convinced that he’s actually a hero, refuses, and instead he creates a black hole and throws himself into it. There’s a difference between being a martyr and being an idiot, and Black Hole Man falls into the latter category. If I had his power I would rule the world.
Mohinder is still the fly, capturing neighbors and drug dealers and sticking them in his web while he makes false promises to Maya about curing her. This storyline would be boring even if it weren’t a total rip-off of a Jeff Goldblum film. Maya sneaks in and sees the people cocoon’s Mohinder has amassed in his loft, but Mohinder finds her and traps her in his cocoon.
