Beyond: Two Souls Wiki

"If I look her in the eye I could find out who I truly am."
—Jodie, talking about her mother

"Old Friends" is the nineteenth (chronologically the twenty-first) chapter of Beyond: Two Souls.


After having been on the run for a long time, Jodie finally meets Cole in autumn.


Jodie meets Cole in a city park, much to his amazement. They exchange pleasantries and catch up on current events. Nathan is now the Executive Director of the DPA and is working with the military. Jodie is surprised by this, but Cole says it was never Nathan's choice as it simply came down to funding.

Eventually, Jodie brings up the topic of her mother. Cole identifies her as Norah Gray and says she has been living in a psychiatric hospital since the day of Jodie's birth.

If the player inquires about the father, Cole says that he died before Jodie was born.

After learning her mother's fate, Jodie insists that she must see her. Cole is reluctant, saying Norah might be too mentally unsound to provide any meaningful answers. Jodie is quick to say she doesn't care about answers — Jodie must see Norah with her own eyes, in hopes of finding out about herself, and by extension, Aiden. Cole understands and goes along with her.

  • This chapter takes place on September 21, 2014. A computer monitor in "Norah" (which takes place the same day as this chapter) displays "264/37"; the 264th day of 2014 is September 21. This lines up with Jodie saying that Norah has been in the hospital for "twenty-four years," as she would have only recently turned 25. Her age during this chapter is also confirmed by her model data.
  • Jodie's model used in this chapter (which also appears in "Norah," "Briefing," and briefly in "Epilogue") is a reused catalog that was originally intended for the deleted chapter "The Senator."[1]
  • The park bears a resemblance to Burke Lake Park in Fairfax County, Virginia.
