Final story, Matt been able to fulfilled Andrew wished to go the Mount Tibet where the monk meditating to find peace and it was dedicated to Andrew.
The story is full of hidden message that shows what happen when a bullied guy suddenly have a superpower that he can't control it even himself and even forgetting the hardwork being with his cousings and friend, Steve.
The message also tell all the viewers that even though you got new powers that is far greater than before, used it for the good and don't ever forget who you are before it happen.
