Save the cheerleader. Save the -- wait, how does it go?
In a hurry? Read the recaplet for a nutshell description!

Previously on Heroes: Mohinder met Peter, Nathan met Niki, Nathan met ikiN, and Matt met Bad Glasses Man and his henchman, Creepy Bald Guy of Silence. Peter realized that he was an empath who could siphon off the powers of other superheroes, ikiN seduced Nathan so that Linderman could get some dirt on him, Hiro kept stopping time to help Ando win at the casino and wound up getting punched out for his efforts, Claire took Jock the Rapist for a ride that ended in a car crash, and, at the very end of the episode, FutureHiro showed up and told Peter that he had a message for him.

Previouslys announcer? Still annoying.

Rather unusually, we start the episode with a black screen and a white title card telling us we're at Chapter Five: Hiros. We're right where we left off, with Peter standing in the blue-tinted subway car, staring at FutureHiro. Mohinder voice-overs at us: "When a change comes, some species feel the urge to migrate. They call it zugunruhe. A pull of the soul to a far-off place. Following a scent in the wind, a star in the sky. The ancient message comes, calling the kindred to take flight and gather together. Only then can they hope to survive the cruel season to come." It's Heroes: The Gathering, I guess.

FutureHiro walks toward Peter, saying his name. Peter asks if Hiro's making this happen. Once again, FutureHiro says that he looks different without the scar. He then says that he's from the future and he has a message. "I don't have much time," he says, moving quickly closer. "I'm risking a rift just by coming here. The girl. You have to save her." "What girl?" asks Peter. God, he's cute. Especially in blue. "The cheerleader," says FutureHiro. "It's the only way to prevent it." "Prevent what?" "Everything." They look at each other for a second. "Listen to me," says FutureHiro urgently. "She must live. The painter. Isaac. Go to him. He will know. When I call you, you must tell me where we meet. You told me many times how lost you felt. Before it all started. This... is what you've been waiting for. Be the one we need." Peter kind of nods at him and FutureHiro turns and walks away. "Wait!" shouts Peter. "Save the cheerleader, save the world!" calls FutureHiro, not looking back.

Time slams back into the present and the lights return to normal as Peter's still trying to get Hiro to explain to him what the hell is going on. He starts yelling for Hiro and looking for him while all the other subway patrons are like, "Uh-oh. Looks like someone bought himself a side of crazy-ass with their Metro card tonight." Mohinder runs over and asks Peter if he's okay and all Peter can say is, "The cheerleader."
