In 2007, Dianna appeared in 4 episodes of “Heroes” as the cruel cheerleader Debbie Marshall. When one of the main character’s Claire (played by Hayden Panettiere) transfers school, one of the first people she encounters is Debbie. She’s the school’s head cheerleader, who enjoys bullying and humiliating others. She particularly likes to shame people who she thinks are overweight; smearing cupcakes on them and writing their weight on their foreheads. When moving, Claire promised her father to not stand out at school at all, and to avoid cheerleading and any other activities which might draw attention to her. When Debbie constantly teases her, and treat the others around them like trash, it gets harder and harder for Claire to ignore her, and to stay away from cheerleading.
After meeting a guy at the school, who like Claire has special abilities, they put together a scheme to embarrass Debbie once and for all. With Claire’s healing power and the guy’s ability to fly, they trick Debbie into thinking she sees Claire being pulled up by a flying creature and dropped from a great height, supposedly to her death. Debbie calls the police, who show up only to find no sign of a dead body anywhere. Claire then appears fully healed at the scene, and acts like she has no idea what Debbie talks about. The police instead find the bottle of alcohol Debbie had been drinking and assume she was just drunk and lying. She is then suspended from school for under-age drinking and never seen again.

Mohinder Suresh has been traveling around giving speeches about genetically abnormal individuals whom he believes are susceptible to an impending plague, the Shanti virus. He is approached by a strange man named Bob, who offers him a job with the mysterious Company. Bob is shown to be able to turn objects into gold which he uses to provide funds for the Company. Afterwards Mohinder is shown calling Noah Bennet, revealing that Mohinder’s speeches were a ruse to gain the attention of “the Company” that Bennet used to work for, so that Mohinder, with Noah’s guidance, can bring it down from within.
In Honduras, two fugitives, Maya and Alejandro Herrera, are trying to cross the border to escape homicide charges. Their conversation indicates that they must stay together, but the reason is not clear until Alejandro is separated from his sister soon afterwards by men from a transport truck. Upon catching up to the truck, Alejandro finds his sister distraught, and the driver and all of the passengers dead, with a dark liquid flowing from their eyes; her power has apparently killed them. It seems that the manifestation of her ability is somehow related to her brother’s presence. They continue to the border, intending to bury the bodies.
Hiro Nakamura lands in a grassy meadow. As he looks around him, he spots a group of samurai archers raising their bows towards him — he turns to run, but sees the warrior that they are about to attack, poised behind Hiro. The subtitles then note that Hiro is outside Kyoto, Japan, in the year 1671. As the archers prepare to attack, a solar eclipse occurs and everyone stops to look at it. Hiro stops time as the archers release their arrows, then realizes the man being attacked is Takezo Kensei. Hiro saves himself and Kensei by teleporting them both away from the conflict. After a series of misunderstandings, Hiro learns that Kensei is actually an Englishman who uses dirty tricks to win.
Claire and Noah Bennet, under the assumed name of Butler, are on the campus of Claire’s new high school in Costa Verde, California. Claire nearly gets run over by a boy named West, who later interacts with her in a science lab and in the school gymnasium. It is there that she stands up to head cheerleader Debbie, who was picking on another girl. Debbie challenges her to perform a back tuck off of “the tower.” Claire climbs the tower, then, remembering her father’s words against “standing out,” tells everyone that she can’t do it. After the floor mats are removed and everyone has gone, she performs the feat, but apparently breaks a leg when landing on the bare floor. West walks in, and it is not clear whether he has witnessed her injury healing.
Matt Parkman is divorced from his wife and is taking care of Molly at Mohinder Suresh’s apartment in Brooklyn. Parkman passes his NYPD detective examination, partially due to his use of telepathy. Later that day, Parkman is confronted at Molly’s school by her teacher because she is falling asleep in class (due to her nightmares) and drawing some rather disturbing pictures. The pictures are of dark eyes, often over her bed at night, and each prominently includes the helix symbol (one depicting the helix as a scar). That evening Parkman tries to talk to Molly about her problems, but she gets upset and refuses to discuss it because she is afraid of the man she mentioned in “How to Stop an Exploding Man.” Later that night she has a nightmare, and Parkman uses his telepathy to hear part of her nightmare: a man’s voice telling Molly he can see her. Molly then wakes up crying in Parkman’s arms.
Nathan Petrelli, distraught over the assumed death of his brother, Peter, is no longer with his wife and sons, has become an alcoholic, and is pushing his entire family away. While in a bar, he receives a call from his daughter, Claire, who tells him she is also mourning Peter and explains she doesn’t know if she can do this anymore. When Nathan asks her what she means, Claire confides she is having difficulty not being who she really is and being forced to live with so many secrets. Nathan says he knows she’s looking for answers but apologetically says he can’t give her any. He looks in the mirror and sees a vision of a disfigured Nathan, apparently suffering from burns all over his face, presumably due to the nuclear explosion in the first season.
He turns away, then looks back to the mirror to see his normal reflection. It is then shown that West was watching Claire during her telephone conversation with Nathan from outside her second-story window. He is shown to be hovering there and shortly flies off into the distance, revealing the power of self-propelled flight her father, Nathan, also has.
Angela Petrelli and Kaito Nakamura separately each find a picture of themselves with a red helix scrawled thereon, which they both understand to indicate that they are to be murdered within 24 hours. They meet on top of the Deveaux building and compare their pictures, which appear to be two separate pieces of a photograph that included them both. Kaito recounts that he and Angela, along with Charles Deveaux, Mr. Linderman, and Mr. Petrelli, were part of a group of twelve people that tried to find evolved humans, and then he and Angela speculate about which member of the group will be their assassin. After Angela leaves and Ando is sent to get a sword for Kaito, a hooded figure appears on the roof. Kaito mentions that of the members of the group, he didn’t expect the assassin “to be you.” The figure tackles Kaito over the side of the roof. Ando returns in time to see them both fall, but when he looks over the edge, only Kaito’s body is seen on the ground below.
Hiro, still distraught that Kensei is not the hero he thought he was, tells him about Kensei’s future tales where he saves the village of Ōtsu and takes the town’s swordmaker’s beautiful daughter as his princess. At that moment, Hiro smells fire and looks behind him to see the village of Ōtsu burning to the ground. As Hiro and Kensei travel toward Ōtsu, a woman from the village encounters Kensei and takes his sword, stating that her father made the sword for him to defend the village with and denounces Kensei for leaving the village to be destroyed. Hiro pleads with Kensei to retrieve the sword and help, who loses patience with Hiro and knocks him unconscious.
At the end of the episode, three thieves are looking for a cargo container (#9109) in a shipyard located in Cork, Ireland. When they break into container 9109, they find Peter Petrelli, chained to one of the sides, wearing only pants and a helix necklace. Expecting to find a shipment of iPods, they angrily threaten him. He defends himself with his powers and seems as shocked as his attackers when he produces lightning that knocks a gangster back. After being asked who he is, he appears to have amnesia and professes “I don’t know…I don’t know.” (Source)

The Irish criminals who found Peter Petrelli shackled inside a cargo container are holding him captive. They violently interrogate him about the missing cargo (a shipment of iPods). Caitlin, the sister of Ricky, the leader of the criminal gang, tends to Peter, who is still unable to remember even his name. Bob, the representative of the Company who hired Mohinder Suresh, sends Mohinder on an assignment, which turns out to be a mission to heal the Haitian.
Maya and Alejandro are struggling to get across the border, and are assisted by a woman named Nidia, a family friend. At her house, an unnamed healer tells her that no one can cure her disease, and that her curse is dark enough to kill the Devil himself.
Matt Parkman and Detective Fuller visit the roof of the Deveaux Building to investigate Kaito Nakamura’s death, and learn that Angela Petrelli was present. Ando explains to Parkman that the helix symbol scrawled on the photograph of Kaito means “Godsend.” Parkman and the detective interview Mrs. Petrelli, who alludes to a prior sexual relationship with Kaito. She then realizes that Parkman is reading her thoughts, and mentally demands that he get out of her head. Parkman greets Nathan Petrelli, who has arrived to post his mother’s bail. As the two walk to the locked interrogation room to retrieve Mrs. Petrelli, she is apparently attacked by an unseen force. Parkman breaks in, but she is alone in the room, with blood on her face. In her hand is the picture of her with the helix symbol scrawled across it.
Hiro Nakamura, still in Japan in 1671, impersonates his hero, Takezo Kensei, in order to correct history. He uses his power to stop time and disarms 11 bandits, rescuing the swordsmith’s daughter. As they converse, she expresses her gratitude. Kensei, persuaded by Hiro’s pleas — and the prospect of a relationship with the swordsmith’s daughter — agrees to rescue the swordsmith, but is ambushed by the bandits Hiro earlier disarmed. Kensei appears to be killed by the bandits’ arrows, but is somehow able to revive: his wounds heal while Hiro watches, amazed.
Claire Bennet, curious about the limits of her abilities, cuts off her little toe to see if it will grow back, which it does, but she discovers that West (who had been watching through her window) has seen the incident. She tries to pursue him, only to find him gone and Chandra Suresh’s book lying on her driveway. The episode ends with her mother’s dog, Mr. Muggles, barking at the sky. (Source)

Sylar awakens on an island beach, disoriented, next to a woman named Michelle. She explains that she is Candice Wilmer in disguise, and that she is creating the illusion of a tropical paradise while he is recovering from surgeries following his injury. Sylar is dubious, so she dispels the illusion to reveal that they are actually in a small shack in the middle of a forest. While recovering, Sylar discovers that he cannot use any of the abilities he acquired. Michelle explains that his powers will return, with her assistance, but that his wound must heal first.
Peter Petrelli tries to figure out how to control his powers, aiding Ricky and his gang in the theft of a large amount of cash. Ricky’s brother Will, however, turns traitor and holds Ricky at gunpoint, demanding the money. He shoots Peter twice when he tries to intervene and continues to demand the money, but is surprised when Peter quickly regenerates and uses telekinesis to hold him against the wall, choking him. Due to Caitlin’s pleadings, Peter stops short of killing Will.
Maya and Alejandro are still on the run. It’s the next day and the two are in an active search to gain a car to get them to the border. When Alejandro tries to break into a random parked car, he and his sister are caught by the police, and the two make a beeline for the alleyway. Maya manages to evade the police by getting over the chainlink fence, but her brother isn’t so fortunate; he gets arrested and brought down to the station. While at the station, Alejandro sees on a wanted poster that he and his sister are wanted for homicide.
Noah explains to Mohinder he’ll protect the latter as long as he’s alive. After seeing the subject of the eighth painting, Mohinder takes a snapshot of it with his cellphone and sends it to him, remarking “that’s what I’m afraid of.” When the painting is shown, it appears to depict Noah’s bloody corpse, complete with a bullet hole through his eye. In the background, Claire is embracing and kissing a shadowed figure. Quickly shrinking the image down when Claire comes in the room, he greets her briefly. After she leaves, the episode ends with Noah still contemplating the ominous painting on his computer screen. (Source)

Claire tries out for the cheerleading team, where she is off-handedly dismissed by Debbie, despite being the best candidate. West convinces Claire to humiliate Debbie so that she can use cheerleading as a cover for their relationship. Debbie is drinking with the other cheerleaders as Claire comes and asks to speak with her in private. After Debbie’s second refusal to let Claire join the squad, West appears in a ski mask and picks up Claire, dropping her and ostensibly killing her. Debbie runs as West gives chase. The police come to Costa Verde High School, where a frantic Debbie tells them that a masked flying man chased her and killed Claire. Claire appears, having regenerated, and tells them that she doesn’t know what Debbie is talking about. The police find Debbie’s alcohol and arrest her. Claire and West sneak away to talk, and another cheerleader tells Claire that she is now in the squad since Debbie has been suspended from school for drinking on campus.
Mohinder is testing Monica’s ability by way of gymnast tapes. Bob appears and tells Mohinder to give her an experimental variation of the virus, one which should disable her powers. Mohinder refuses, since the virus can mutate and become resistant or infect the general population. Mohinder then calls Bennet, who advises him to do it in the interest of their plan to take down the Company and citing the fact that they have Molly. Mohinder speaks with Monica again, but when confronted with the actual deed, Mohinder instead destroys the syringe. Bob tells him that someone else will do it if he will not, so Mohinder destroys the cabinet filled with their samples of the virus. Bob later thanks Mohinder, telling them that they need him for his morality as well as his blood and knowledge, “to keep [them] in line.” Bob tells Mohinder that he will be getting a partner to make sure “there are no further misunderstandings.” Mohinder is checking up on Molly as Niki reveals that she is now his new partner, and that she owes the Company a great deal. Bob also speaks with Monica, encouraging her to use her powers in a positive manner while she remains in New Orleans. He gives her an iPod with videos of various skills for her to learn.
Maya and Alejandro are traveling with Sylar to the border. Alejandro wants to leave Sylar and use a coyote to help them cross, believing him to be untrustworthy. Maya argues that they need Sylar and that he has been sent by God. They cross the border where they are stopped by citizen border control. Sylar encourages Maya to use her power to get past, stopping Alejandro from negating her power. The three drive away as the assailants fall. Alejandro later gives Maya an ultimatum: either Sylar goes or he does. She convinces Alejandro to allow Sylar to stay, but he tells her that the next time her power activates, he will let Sylar die. When Maya isn’t watching, Sylar tells Alejandro that he intends to kill them and steal their powers, or at least to use Maya, citing his original power as a means to control her. Alejandro, who doesn’t speak English, can’t understand his threats.
Bennet and the Haitian are in Odessa, Ukraine where they find Ivan, an old mentor of Noah and Claude. They threaten to take away memories of his family unless he tells them where to find the other paintings from the series of eight. Ivan refuses, and they begin by taking away his memories of the day he met his wife.
Ivan finally crumbles when threatened with the memories of his dead daughter. Ivan mentions that the paintings are “where we tagged the liquid man”. Noah then shoots him, to cover up the interrogation as a simple robbery. They find the paintings. Four of them depict Claire unconscious on the stairs, a hand holding a vial (similar to the injection), Niki beating on a door, and a shocked Peter standing in front of a window, a frowning man behind him in the lower-right corner, and a biohazard symbol overlaid on the lower-left corner. The final three, in order, depict Hiro and Kensei fighting, Mohinder with a broken nose and a smoking gun, and Noah’s death.
Ando reads more of the scrolls as Hiro reveals that he, Kensei and Yaeko have attacked Whitebeard’s camp. They rescue Yaeko’s father, who tells them that Whitebeard has guns, which he plans to use to overthrow the emperor. They are making their escape when Hiro teleports himself and Yaeko away to escape gunfire. She realizes that he was the one who saved her from the brigands and they kiss. Kensei sees this and betrays Hiro, siding with Whitebeard as they take Yaeko and her father away.
Peter and Caitlin arrive in Montreal to find a note from Adam Monroe. Moments later, Peter accidentally teleports them to New York City, where the streets are deserted and they see evacuation orders dated June 14, 2008 everywhere. The episode ends as they realize that they are a year in the future.
The episode was dedicated in memory of Timothy P. Susco who worked on the stage for Heroes and died suddenly on August 15, 2007. (Source)
