Madsen Household Bathroom is a bathroom located upstairs adjacent to Joyce and David's room in the Madsen Household. It is explorable.

Episode One - "Chrysalis"

Max Caulfield can explore the bathroom after switching on the light,[note 1] which flickers as though there is an electrical fault. She can comment on the make-up lying on a counter under the mirror, stating that it must belong to Chloe's mother as Chloe wouldn't use animal products. She can also find Fluoxetine pills and hopes that Chloe isn't taking them. When she looks at the hair dye, she comments that she likes that blue on Chloe.

Episode Three - "Chaos Theory"

When Max enters the corridor, the light in the bathroom is on (still flickering). She can wash her face and brush her teeth with Chloe's toothbrush at the sink. When looking at the mirror, she can take an optional photo wearing Rachel Amber's clothes. Max can also notice an old pirate towel that hangs on the shower, stating it has belonged to Chloe since they were kids. When she looks at the hair dye, she comments that she hasn't gone through a dying her hair blue phase yet and that maybe it's time.

Episode Four - "Dark Room"

When Max enters the corridor, the light in the bathroom is off.[note 2] She can explore the room after switching on the light. Chloe's pirate towel is no longer visible; however, it may now be inside the laundry basket by the sink. Max can wash her face and open the cabinet above the sink to comment on how happy she is to see Chloe's blue hair dye as it means the "real Chloe" is back with her.

Alternative Timeline

In the alternative timeline, Chloe asks Max to get her morphine out of a cabinet in the bathroom. Max can explore the bathroom after switching on the light, which still flickers in this reality. The bathroom in this timeline looks familiar except for the new cabinet above the toilet which contains medicine. The scales that lay on the floor between the toilet and laundry basket in the original timeline are now tucked under the sink drawers. Max can open the cabinet over the sink and comment that it's cool that Chloe uses natural medicine too.
