Claire and her dad explore her new school. Claire has a run in with a Debbie, and is playfully teased by West. Mr. Bennet has a run in with his boss and is generally disgusted by his job. Later the whole family eats dinner in their new home. That night West hovers above Claire's window and then flies away over the suburbs of Costa Verde.
West soars above Costa Verde, pondering his alien/robot theory.
Mr. Zern teaches about lizards and Regeneration. West tries to encourage Claire to open up, but has no luck. Later, he watches as Claire pushes the limits of her ability. Meanwhile, the Haitian meets Noah at Copy Kingdom.
West encourages Claire to admit that she's special. When she finally breaks down, West flies her over Costa Verde to a beach. They talk about their powers, joking about the merits of the other's power. They then kiss, and Claire discovers that West has a peculiar mark on his neck.
Claire tells West that they shouldn't hang out because of her parents being over-protective. When West asks if he can talk to her father, she tells him to let it go, since he's over-protective. West asks her on one date, and she accepts. Later, Claire lies to her father about going to the library to be with West. West flies Claire out to Hollywood, then brings her back to Costa Verde late at night.
- Costa Verde, CA, does not actually exist. Additionally, this is the first fictional named city in the Heroes universe.
- In a question and answer session, Joe Pokaski and Aron Coleite said, "[Costa Verde's name] plays on [a] Joseph Campbell theme: Water. As a unifying agent that connects all cultures across the world. Costa Verde, or "The Green Coast" seemed to be a great city in that tradition."
- In his blog, Greg Beeman said that that the production staff imagines Costa Verde being very much like Palos Verdes, a beach town just south of Los Angeles.
- According to Heroes Interactive, scenes set at the beach (Kindred) were filmed in Point Dume Beach in Malibu. The commentary for Kindred elaborates that this is the same beach for the scene in Kanyakumari when Mohinder spreads his father's ashes (Seven Minutes to Midnight).
