On the Heroes episode "I Am Become Death," this version of Peter Petrelli was shot and killed. But his niece. It's a complicated story, one that makes little sense even to the most ardent fans of the show.
[voiceover] In the beginning there was discovery. A confusion of elements. The first snowfall of impossible change. Old lives undone, left behind. Strange faces, made familiar.

All in defiance of a thundering truth. They’re here, and the earth shudders underfoot.
