Starting Location: Raymond Chandler Evening
Find out what’s going on
As you walk into El Coyote Coyo, you’ll overhear two gangoons trying to muscle a drunk corpo. Pepe the bartender asks you to teach the thugs a lesson.
Decide whether to intervene
Walk up to the goons and tell them to get lost. If your Body stat is high enough you can intimidate them into leaving, or if you have the Street Kid background you’ll have a background specific dialogue choice that will have the same effect. Otherwise you can knock them out in a fist fight (an option you’ll be forced into if you’ve already completed the Gig Bring Me The Head of Gustavo Orta. The gangoons will recognize you and instantly become hostile during your talk)
Defeat the gangoons
Gorilla Arms and thermal knuckles. Now every fist fight can be a barbecue.
Talk to the corpo (Optional)
After you’ve finished the fight, talk to the drunk corpo and you can squeeze him for an extra €$650.
Talk to Pepe
Head over to the bar and Pepe will tell you a tale of woe. Looks like he needs proof that his wife is cheating on him. V must be having a slow gig day.
Go to the area where Pepe’s wife works during the day
Follow the waypoint to a search area to find Pepe’s wife.
Scan and identify Pepe’s wife
Once in the search area look for Cynthia, who has a pink jacket and a blue purse according to Pepe. Scan her to advance the mission.
Follow Pepe’s wife from a safe distance
Follow Cynthia’s slow walk down the street from 30m back or so. If you get too close, Johnny will treat you to some more noir narration.
Follow Pepe’s wife into the building
Eventually Cynthia will turn left into a nondescript building. Wait a few moments, then follow her inside.
Find Pepe’s wife
Head up to the second floor, and you’ll hear some incriminating dialogue. Enter the nearby room to find Cynthia and discover what she’s been doing on her lunchhour.
Talk to Cynthia
Well that’s a twist. Must be nice to have corpo money.
Leave the building
Head down the stairs and back outside.
On the phone, that is. Just standing there shouting won’t accomplish anything.
Inform Pepe of your findings
Tell Pepe what you discovered, and when he asks your opinion tell him “She loves you, you gonk” to save Pepe and Cynthia’s marriage. He might be reeling from the shock, but he still doesn’t know that he’s about to have a second kid.
