The Evos can run from regular humans, but now they can’t hide on "Heroes Reborn." Just when it seemed things couldn’t get any worse for evolved humans in the U.S., a product was introduced that can find where they are anywhere in the world in episode 3, “Under the Mask.”
Luke (Zachary Levi) and Joanne (Judi Shekoni) now have Bennet’s files and are driving in his car. Joanne is thrilled about all the possible Evos they can go kill now, while Luke looks like he’s tired of all it. Luke goes to shut the radio off, when the car suddenly dies and they’re forced to walk.
At the Yamagato Tower, Miko (Kiki Sukezane) continues to fight off guards in the lobby while looking for her father. She’s able to overcome the guard, but soon a man named Harris (Clé Bennett) shows up and he fights better than Miko, is able to disarm her and takes the sword from her saying it’s not hers.
Erica Kravid (Rya Kihlstedt), the CEO of Renautas is introduced during a board meeting as they prepare to roll out a new product called Epic. Harris walks in and tells Erica about what happened in the lobby and he says she had Hiro Nakamura’s (Masi Oka) sword and is the daughter of Hachiro Otomo. Erica wants her kept in custody until they figure out what they’re dealing with.
Luke and Joanne stop at a diner and Luke wants to know why they can’t just go home. Joanne wants to push on and they agree to go toward Los Angeles. As Luke goes to eat he notices something wrong with his hands. After the diner, Luke and Joanne find a hotel and he asks Joanne to check in so he can get some air. His hands then start glowing the more he’s in the sun and he drops to his knees screaming.
Noah Bennet (Jack Coleman) and Quentin (Henry Zebrowski) steal a truck after their car is stolen, and Bennet takes Quentin to a hospital to have his arm stitched up after being shot. At the hospital, Bennet runs into a doctor he once knew but hasn’t seen since June 13. The doctor tells Bennet he’ll be right back and calls security on him, but when he turns around Bennet is gone.
Quentin gets out from being treated but can’t find Bennet, but sees security on high alert. Bennet grabs a guard and holds him at gunpoint to get answers. Noah finds out from the security footage that he was time-jumping a year ago, which meant Hiro was there.
The footage also shows Bennet looking at a body that appears to be Claire’s (Hayden Panettiere) and that Molly (Francesca Eastwood) was there and could have answers for him. Quentin tracks down Bennet and the two leave the hospital. Bennet can’t understand why he would make himself forget what happened or how Claire died, especially since her power was to heal. The two have to find Molly before Renautas gets her, and they have to dig more into the past of Primatech.
Harris takes out a pouch of knives and plans to use them on Miko to get answers when Ren (Toru Uchikado) tracks her down and distracts Harris when he walks in the room. Miko then attacks Harris and grabs a butcher’s knife and cuts his hand off. Ren and Miko are then able to escape, but Harris is able to grow his hand back, and the hand that was removed gets turned into a Harris clone.
Molly is being flown to Renautas headquarters in Colorado by Taylor (Eve Harlow), who happens to be Erica’s daughter. The two arrive, but so do Bennet and Quentin. Noah has Quentin act as a distraction and they’re able to disarm the men around Molly, but she refuses to go with Bennet or give him answers and runs away.
Erica reveals the grand plan for Epic, which involves glasses that when worn reveal Evos. They now have a system together, thanks to Molly, which can locate any Evo in the world. Noah sees this and tells Quentin they have to get Molly and destroy Epic.
