Episode Three - "Hell Is Empty"
Chloe returns home the next morning after spending the night at Rachel's house (in which she may discover that David had searched through her room depending on decisions made in the previous episodes) and calls Frank Bowers, who reluctantly agrees to meet Chloe at the junkyard. While heading downstairs, she sees Joyce and David embracing each other. When she tries to sneak pass them, they see her. David reveals that he has decided to trust Chloe more if she stops taking drugs, but this does not convince Chloe to give up her rebellious ways. David then explains the reason while he's here: his friend Phil Becker had died during their last mission in the army and he did not want Chloe to suffer the same pain that he had when he lost his friend. He then hands her a photo of him and Phil. Chloe can choose whether to take the picture or reject it, which will either earn David's trust or anger. She then leaves for the junkyard, taking her father's toolbox and an old repair manual with her. At the end of the game and depending on Chloe's past choices, she is either seen embracing embracing David and Joyce or still resenting David.
