Beyond: Two Souls Wiki

This is the transcript of "The Briefing," the twenty-first (chronologically the twenty-third) chapter of Beyond: Two Souls.


(The chapter opens with Jodie being briefed by Nathan and General McGrath.)

General McGrath: According to our intel, the Republic of Kazirstan has discovered the existence of the Infraworld. Found a rift conducting experiments of a secret base, located in the province of Felhanjiang.

Nathan: We don't know at what stage they are in their experiments but we've detected important fluctuations within the Infraworld. That means they found a way to interact with the other side.

General McGrath: Now, your mission is to destroy this condenser and any other advanced technology you find.

Jodie: Even if we manage to destroy the condenser, the rift will still be there...

General McGrath: Building a condenser is a costly and time-consuming business. With this operation, we'll gain time to better understand the Infraworld, and to make sure that no one try to use it against us.

Jodie: I assume the site will be heavily guarded?

General McGrath: Well, you should expect considerable military resistance. Team will...

Jodie: Team?

(Nathan speaks through a microphone.)

Nathan: Show them in, Marla.

(Jodie's former team enters the room.)

Vince: Hey, baby.

Nick: Good to see you, girl.

(Jodie looks at Ryan, upset.)

General McGrath: Clayton's team goes with you, a small agile commando unit able to avoid detection. (Jodie crosses her arms.) The mission begins in two days. Good luck.

(As Jodie stands up, Nathan grabs her arm and stops her.)

Nathan: Be careful Jodie. No one knows what you're gonna find on the other side...

Jodie: Don't worry. I don't think I'm ready to join the Infraworld yet.

Nathan: Good...Because I don't want to lose you.

(As Nathan leaves, Ryan walks over to Jodie.)

Ryan: It's good to see you.

(Jodie is given a set of dialogues to deal with Ryan.)

(If Jodie chooses "Distant":)

Jodie: For the mission's sake, I'll try and forget what a fucking bastard you are.

Ryan: Jodie, I...

Jodie: You know what? Don't even try.

(Jodie walks past Ryan.)

Ryan: Great...

(If Jodie chooses "Curt":)

Jodie: Fuck you, Ryan.

Ryan: So, you're still angry, then..?

Jodie: You really think that you can just come back here and pretend like nothing happened?

Ryan: Jodie, I...

Jodie: Shhh... Don't talk so you won't have to lie.

(Jodie walks past Ryan.)

Ryan: Right...

(If Jodie chooses "Aggressive", the lights will flicker and Aiden is heard.)

Ryan: Ahm, looks like Aiden remembers me...

Jodie: Keep your distance, Ryan. Aiden is even less forgiving than I am.

(Jodie walks past Ryan.)

Ryan: Right...

(If Jodie chooses "Cold":)

Jodie: For the mission's sake, I'll try to keep Aiden from killing you, but no promises...

(Jodie walks past Ryan.)

Ryan: Well... We're off to a great start...

(The chapter ends as the scene fades to black.)
