Barnaby is suffering.
Barnaby’s memories are astray and the face of the killer continues to change. Kriem revealed it wasn’t really Jake who killed his parents, and that has caused him some deep turmoil. Kotetsu and he decide to retrace his steps to possibly remember the killers face. Barnaby passes out while in turmoil over it and Kotetsu lays him down in a rest area inside the store they are visiting. However Kotetsu’s mom calls and Kaede is upset and doubts he’ll really come home – to which he says he wants to but can’t right now. Barnaby overhears him saying he’s going to quit and demands an explanation. Barnaby of course assumes the worst and becomes enraged, feeling Kotetsu doesn’t trust him and just did what would make it easier for him. He begins to badmouth Kotetsu and well.
Barnaby activates his powers and flies away. He heads over to Mr. Maverick’s office and says he’s been confused lately. Meanwhile Kotetsu is at a bar with the intention to get drunk, when he sees an interview where Barnaby admits he wants one person to view him as worthy of his trust. While he doesn’t say names, it’s obviously Kotetsu. Kotetsu changes his mind and goes to see him. While in the middle of talking to Mr. Maverick Samantha calls with important news. What she shows him is the true identity of the person who was with Barnaby the day of his murder. It wasn’t Mr. Maverick…it was Samantha.
So Mr. Maverick explains the truth. In the beginning of Hero TV, Barnaby’s parents helped him create the suits as well as other technologies to enhance the experience of Hero TV. However, people still didn’t trust the Next so the show was failing. Mr. Maverick then joined forces with Oroborous in order to make very flashy crimes the heroes could defeat. It was all going perfectly until Mr. and Mrs. Brookes found out and demanded he tell the world the truth.
He’s glad he didn’t kill Barnaby though, he became a great hero. And with that he erases his memory as Kotetsu is calling. In that moment, we see Maverick’s face as the true killer.
