Origami blues

Ethan aims the gun at his head.

"Origami Blues" is one of seven possible endings to Ethan Mars' story in Heavy Rain. It is his second worst ending.



Ethan sits in his home, profoundly depressed about the death of Shaun Mars, his only remaining son. Tortured by guilt and sadness, and with dozens of origami figures scattered around the room, Ethan executes himself using the gun from The Shark Trial.



  • This can be considered Ethan's second worst ending because he cannot cope with losing Shaun despite evading arrest and not being framed as the Origami Killer.
  • If you look closely at Ethan's forehead after he shoots himself, you can see that the hole left by the bullet is not modeled onto the forehead.
  • This ending is very similar to "Tears in the Rain," with the only difference being that Madison is alive or Ethan has forgiven her in the latter.
