"Jodie... What have you done...?"
—Nathan, after arriving at the police station

Broken is the first (chronologically the nineteenth) chapter of Beyond: Two Souls.


Jodie's pursuers earn her wrath.


Jodie is sitting in a police station, being questioned by Lt. J. Sherman, the department's sheriff. With each question, she experiences flashbacks of events: chased by dogs in the forest; a homeless man. He implores her to help him understand, explaining he had found her on the side of the road. She remains quiet. He then notices an old scar on the back of her head, and becomes concerned — a coffee mug on the table suddenly flies off the table and shatters against the wall, when he comes close.

It then cuts to Nathan in the back of a town car, arguing with someone on the phone. He says "they" have no idea what they're dealing with, and to wait for him to arrive. The person on the other end apparently hangs up, as the man scorns "them", calling them fools.

Back at the police station, Jodie is alone in the sheriff's office. Aiden makes an indistinct noise, and Jodie responds that she knows they're coming. A team of SWAT then storm the police station, led by its commander, T. Clieford. He demands to know where the girl Sherman picked up is; the sheriff indicates the closed door leading to his office.

Clieford silently orders his men into position around the door, before motioning for the sheriff to be quiet, and to open the door. He does so, reluctantly.

An indeterminate amount of time later, Nathan arrives at the station, only to find the whole building in disarray. The only man left alive is the sheriff, Sherman, presumably because he was kind to Jodie. Jodie is nowhere to be seen.
