Quantum Break

FINAL MOMENTS At the Bradbury Swimming Pool, William and Jack use the Time Machine to return to what, for Jack, is the present day, a little after his point of departure at Monarch HQ. When they do, they find the pool full of Monarch operatives—Serene has finally discovered William’s hideout, and has arrived in force. Jack has a final encounter with Serene. It’s clear Serene’s too far...

RETURN TO THE UNIVERSITY Going back in time, Jack returns to the Project Promenade lab just in time to see his earlier self and William escape the lab. Forced to take another route, Jack now must intercept William before he does. He knows that if William makes it to the library, he’ll be killed when the demolition charges go off and the building collapses on top of him. In a desperate dash,...

MONARCH HQ Jack makes his way into the Monarch HQ with the intent of taking the countermeasure. The End of Time is imminent, and he doesn’t have much time. Fighting his way through the building, he eventually locates the countermeasure. Called the Chronon Field Regulator by Monarch, they have repurposed it as a key component in the Lifeboat Project, Monarch’s survival plan for the End of T...

CONTROL/SURRENDER Consumed by pain and paranoia, Serene’s now truly struggling with his Chronon Syndrome. He no longer knows who to trust, and all of his plans seem to be slipping through his fingers. He knows the End of Time is getting closer every second; he knows that his Lifeboat Protocol is ready, but he isn’t sure if it’ll be any good. One of his men comes to him with a damaged Ch...

WILL’S WORKSHOP 2010 Today, finally, William’s work is finished. Beth intends to steal the countermeasure, return with it to 2016, and use it to fix the Fracture. But Beth has been hit hard by her time here. She’s now seen the End of Time, and she believes nothing can change—she’s tried to change many things in those eleven years, and none of it has ever worked. In her heart of heart...

SWIMMING POOL 2010 Arriving in 2010, Jack finds himself in the same location—but six years earlier. To his surprise, he encounters Beth Wilder after all—but an older, vastly more worn Beth Wilder. She was sent forward to the End of Time, she tells Jack. It was a horrible experience, and she barely survived, thanks to the Chronon harness she was wearing. While there, she encountered Paul Se...

PREPARING THE TIME MACHINE Back at the Bradbury Swimming Pool, Jack and Beth convince Dr. Amaral to help them repair the Time Machine. During the conversation, Jack accuses Amaral of hiding the information about the countermeasure. After Dr. Amaral agrees to help, Beth opens up to Jack. She reveals that she knows more about time travel than she’s let on previously. She says that when she was...

PORT DONNELLY BRIDGE Trying to escape from Gull Island, Jack must make his way across the Port Donnelly bridge to cross the river and get back to the part of Riverport that’s on mainland. However, Monarch has set up checkpoints all over the place, so the bridge is blocked. Reluctant to fight his way across, with countless civilians sure to be caught in the crossfire, Jack ponders how to proc...

SOFIA AMARAL / MARTIN HATCH In the aftermath of the disaster that the party turned into, Serene is enraged. Who helped Jack escape? Dr. Amaral was the only person who could prepare the treatments Serene needs for his ever-worsening Chronon Syndrome­—how could she be gone? How did they know to grab her? Hatch has been warning Serene about traitors, and now claims Dr. Amaral must have been w...

MONARCH GALA Jack makes his way to the Monarch mansion, which is caught in the middle of a stutter. Finding Beth there, frozen with all the other party guests, he frees her from the stutter, then hands her the Chronon harness—while wearing it, she won’t get stuck in a stutter even if another one hits. Making their way into the mansion, they find Dr. Amaral. She’s frozen in the stutter, ...

RESEARCH FACILITY In his holding cell, Jack waits for Beth to come along and spring him. She’s the asset on the inside Monarch doesn’t know about. Once she shows up, she tells him that Dr. Amaral is either at her office in the R&D facility located elsewhere on the island, or she’s at the party at the Monarch mansion. She doesn’t have clearance for the R&D facility, so Jack will...

BUSINESS/PERSONAL At the Monarch mansion on Gull Island, Paul Serene and Martin Hatch are debating what to do about Jack Joyce now that he’s surrendered. Should Serene ignore Jack’s presence and concentrate on his duties as Monarch’s leader now that all of their plans are in motion and the situation is developing rapidly, or should he interview Jack himself to find out what he knows—an...

BRADBURY SWIMMING POOL Arriving at the Bradbury Swimming Pool, which has been closed down for years, Jack, Beth, and the abductee Jack rescued investigate the premises. Incredibly, they discover another Time Machine, hidden in the pool. It’s been built by William. They also find a video message from William, from July 4, 2010, addressed to Beth. In this message, he says that his countermeas...

GROUND ZERO With some guidance from the abductee he rescued, Jack realizes that in order to reach the drydocks, he’ll have to go through the highly restricted area known as Ground Zero. On his way there, he learns that Monarch has recovered some of William’s personal effects from his car. Going through them, he finds an old, battered key labeled “Bradbury Swimming Pool.” To his shock,...

Regaining consciousness in the back of a Monarch van, Jack takes in his surroundings even as another stutter hits. Climbing out of the van, he discovers the mystery woman he met earlier and another Monarch operative pointing guns at each other. Disarming them both and arming himself with their guns, he makes his way out of the warehouse he was in, only to realize he’s near the old Riverport d...
