Lynette is a waitress at the Burnt Toast Diner in Midland, TX.
When Ando notices Hiro in the picture of Charlie's birthday party, he asks Lynette about it. She tells him the picture was taken about six months ago, and that Hiro and Charlie were close until Hiro disappeared weeks ago.
In the past, Lynette snaps the photograph of Charlie and Hiro together at Charlie's birthday party.
Lynette takes Mr. Bennet, Matt and Ted's order.
Lynette arrives at work on her motor scooter. Just before she walks in she sees Hiro Nakamura in his hospital gown, and comments on his butt. Later on, while helping Charlie, she asks Hiro who Sylar is. Hiro lies, saying that Sylar is a doctor. Later in the day, Lynette pays Charlie.
Lynette takes Matt's order. Sylar, while in control of Matt, comments on her nice personality. Sylar then taunts Matt with threats of killing Lynette unless Matt tells him what he wants to know. Unaware of the danger she faces, Lynette is confronted by Sylar who, as Matt, asks for a straw. Later she notices a disturbing note on Matt's napkin which states that he plans to murder people. Shaken, Lynette calls the Midland police.
Lynette is amongst those in Hiro's imaginary trial. When the court is ready to start, Lynette says "all rise". Throughout the trial, she sits with the other jury members and, when Hiro finally accepts his fate, she is in the group of people who encourage him to fight on for his life.
