Beyond: Two Souls Wiki

"Château-Margaux 2001. Guy in the store said it was a pretty good year..."
—Ryan, talking about the wine he brought to dinner

"The Dinner" is the sixteenth (chronologically the fifteenth) chapter of Beyond: Two Souls.


After two years in the CIA, Jodie has a special dinner with a friend in honor of her new apartment.


Jodie receives a phone call from Ryan, asking her if she got his email about going out to a fancy restaurant. Realizing at that moment that Ryan's email was the reason Aiden destroyed her computer earlier in the week, she apologizes for not reading it. He says it's too late now, but reschedules for another night. Jodie quickly invites him to her place, offering to cook instead, and he accepts.

Soon after, it's then a race against the clock to put everything in order:

  • Clean the entire living room:
    • Dispose of any and all trash into the bin in the kitchen.
    • Put any and all dirty clothing into the hamper in the bathroom.
    • Replace all the books on the bookshelf.
    • Shove all the games underneath the TV stand.
  • Change out of sleeping clothes into one of the following outfits:
    • Sexy — a tight white blouse and blue jeans
    • Elegant — a slinky red dress
    • Cool — a black and red shirt with ripped sleeves and skinny jeans
  • Choose one of the following meal options:
    • Order a pizza
    • Chicken curry
    • Asian beef
  • Set the table (and automatically light candles).
  • Optional:
    • Turn on music.
    • Turn on the lamp.
    • Take a shower.
    • Lay on Jodie's bed and reassure herself.
    • Wash the dishes.

During these preparations, Aiden will attempt to ruin her planning whenever possible. Halfway through, the doorbell will ring, and Jodie will start to panic, saying Ryan is early. She opens the door, only to find no one there. Should Jodie leave to look for Ryan, she will be locked out by Aiden, and to get back in, she will override control to open the door. This is the first time Jodie displays her ability for telekinesis without Aiden's help — as a result, her nose will bleed. Not going out will allow the player to carry on. He will then stack up all the chairs onto the table erratically and stop the clock in the living room. If Jodie chooses to take a shower, Aiden will write "You don't need him you have me" in the fogged mirror. Jodie will then tell Aiden that he doesn't understand, and wipe the fogged mirror clean of his writing.

Ryan soon shows up with a bottle of wine in hand. Jodie greets him and shows him to her living room as she goes into the kitchen to grab a corkscrew. Aiden will fling open the cupboards, oven, and fridge to deter her, but she shuts them and goes back to Ryan with two wine glasses and the corkscrew. The two will then sip wine on the couch and make conversation.

As Aiden, the player will have numerous attempts to derail the date, resulting in awkward pauses and Ryan becoming uncomfortable. Jodie will excuse herself by saying she had to check on the food, and will walk to the kitchen. She will chastise Aiden and angrily tell him to go away. To avoid this, don't do anything while taking control of Aiden.

The two will then go eat at the table. If everything goes right, Ryan will confess his love to Jodie. You then have the choice to kiss him or go away. If you choose to kiss him, the two lovers will go to Jodie's bed. If Jodie didn't get assaulted in "Like Other Girls," the love scene carries on. Otherwise, Aiden says something that causes Jodie to have a flashback and a panic attack; she is still traumatized by her memory of the assault and pushes Ryan away. He will then leave her to cry alone. If Aiden spooks Ryan enough, he will leave reluctantly. Jodie cries as she says "I hate you" to Aiden and that she hopes he's happy.

If Aiden does nothing, but the player rejects the kiss as Jodie, she will ask if Aiden's happy. Aiden says in his own ghostly language that it isn't his fault. Jodie agrees, and admits that he maybe wasn't the type for her. As tears roll down her face, Aiden tries to console Jodie by filling the glass of wine. Jodie says that Aiden will always be there for her, drinks the wine, and the chapter ends.

  • Perfect Lover - Cooked a meal, cleaned the apartment, took a shower, wore the elegant dress and put on some music.
  • Casual Girl - Ordered a pizza, watched some TV and wore something casual.
  • In Love with Ryan - Slept with Ryan.
  • Uncontrollable -  Ruin the dinner with Aiden. You MUST spook Ryan at the dinner table. This is the final requirement in a total of six in order to get this trophy.


  • Bonus: Performance Capture in Beyond: Two Souls - After you have cleaned up and Ryan has arrived, look in the bathroom corner.


  • If Jodie successfully snuck out in "Like Other Girls" and was nearly assaulted at the Red House Bar (required to obtain the Together Forever trophy), she will not be able to make love to Ryan.
  • If you choose not to cook anything, Ryan and Jodie will never sit at the dinner table. This prevents the player from using Aiden to make Ryan leave early.
  • It is possible to skip some of Jodie's dialogue at the beginning by going into the bathroom once the player has control of Aiden.
  • The address of Jodie's new apartment is 6192 Columbus Street. The apartment is located on the 9th floor.
  • The Elegant Dress that Jodie can wear in this chapter is the same dress she wears during "The Embassy." Jodie's nails are painted the instant she puts the dress on.
  • The Cool Outfit can also be seen in "Separation" as one of the outfits Jodie can pull out of her closet.
  • This is one of the few chapters that shows Jodie has powers of her own. If Aiden locks her out of the apartment, she can open the door herself, showing that she is also telekinetic. Further evidence of this can be seen if this chapter is played in Duo Mode, as the player controlling Jodie must complete the interaction to open the door rather than the player controlling Aiden. However, Jodie has to strain herself to use her powers, to the point of having a nosebleed.
