The solace of salt air; the peace of danger left behind. The luxury of grief... And maybe for a moment you believe.

Robert Canning of IGN describes the episode as "short on action", but with "much to look forward to."
The central theme of human evolution, the potential for superhuman changes, is introduced by the character of Mohinder Suresh, a genetics professor in Madras, India. After receiving news of the death of his father, Chandra Suresh, Mohinder goes to New York to finish Chandra's research, believing it was the reason he was murdered. Mohinder's story introduces the idea of an underlying conspiracy involving the "heroes". At his father's apartment in India, he hears a mysterious person searching the apartment; the same man gets into Mohinder's taxi, asking him several suspicious questions before Mohinder flees. Two storylines in particular reflect a darker perspective on the newfound abilities. Isaac Mendez is a heroin addict in New York City, he claims that he can paint the future, but his girlfriend, Simone Deveaux, believes it is the influence of narcotics. Following a severe overdose, he paints a mural of a nuclear explosion destroying Manhattan.

During the escape, Niki believes she sees a reflection, not her. She leaves Micah with a friend and returns home, she blacks out during the performance, awakening some time to find that they have been savagely killed. Her strange reflection motions for her to keep silent. Both Isaac and Niki find their powers to be "an unwelcome change that they are forced to deal with."Meanwhile, Hiro Nakamura, an office worker in Tokyo, discovers he can control the passage of time. Hiro is presented in a lighter, happier manner than the other characters, as someone, excited about the changes happening to him, his friend and co-worker, Ando Masahashi, is skeptical after Hiro proves it to him by teleporting into the women's restroom at a bar. Hiro believes he is meant for something more. Hiro teleports from a subway in Tokyo to New York City's Times Square.

She believes. Heading home, they come across a fiery train wreck, from which Claire saves a man, escaping unharmed. Peter Petrelli's story crosses paths with many of the other characters. A hospice nurse in New York, Peter has recurring dreams of flying, he tells congressional candidate Nathan Petrelli, that he believes he can fly. Nathan responds by saying. Peter tells his mother that he has a metaphysical connection with Nathan, but his mother is skeptical. Simone, the daughter of one of Peter's patients, tells him to bring morphine to Isaac's apartment. There, Peter sees a painting of himself flying. At the end of the episode, he summons Nathan to an alley in the middle of the city. Peter leaps off of the roof of an adjacent building attempting to fly, but instead it is Nathan who flies up and catches him, only to lose his grip and drop Peter. Kring credits the direct concept and idea for this last scene to Damon Lindelof, producer of Lost; the episode features a solar eclipse. An eclipse forms part of the series' logo, occurs in the season one finale, "How to Stop an Exploding Man".
As well, an image of the Earth eclipsing the Sun as viewed from an observation point away from the Earth, is used in the series' title sequence. When the total solar eclipse occurs in "Genesis", it is witnessed directly by Peter, Claire and Niki, as well as indirectly by Isaac, it is implied that the event is seen in New York, Nevada and California, although this is impossible in the real world, as the umbra is at most a few hundred miles wide. In fact, the Solar Eclipse that occurred on September 22, 2006, was annular in Guyana and French Guiana and partial in South America, West Africa, southern Africa, the Antarctic Peninsula, East Antarctica, it was not total anywhere. Early in the episode, Micah is making a pinhole camera through; the scenes involving Claire's excursion into the train wreck and Mr. Bennet getting into Mohinder's cab as Peter leaves were used again in Season 3's namesake Chapter Eight, "Villains," showing the events
