Madison and Ethan during "Tears in the Rain"

"Tears in the Rain" is the worse of two possible endings to the stories of Ethan Mars and Madison Paige in Heavy Rain, which they can get if they survive and are in a relationship at the end of the game. It is the third worst ending for Ethan and (arguably) the neutral ending for Madison.

Characters Edit

Ending Edit

Ethan and Madison stand over Shaun's gravestone. Ethan is visibly upset. Madison talks about moving away to a place where it never rains so they can both start a new life, and asks him to give her a child. Ethan cannot get past the guilt he feels about being unable to save or protect his sons. He asks Madison for a moment alone. Madison starts to walk back to the car and Ethan pulls out a gun; Madison cries out as he shoots himself. The screen then fades away as Madison cries over his body.

Transcript Edit

Madison: We'll go away from here, Ethan. Somewhere where it never rains. We'll start a new life. You'll get a job as an architect and I'll work for the local newspaper. We'll rebuild our life... and we'll finally forget.

Ethan: How can I forget that my two sons died because of me? I loved them more than anything in the world, but I couldn't protect them.

Madison: I want you to give me a child. A little boy with your eyes. And we'll watch him grow up together and we'll be happy. We'll get through this, Ethan. Life has to go on. I'll be there to help you. We'll get through this nightmare together...I love you, Ethan.

Ethan: Just give me a few more minutes Madison. I'll catch up.

Madison: I'll... wait for you in the car.

(Madison starts to walk away, but before she reaches the car she turns to see that Ethan has pulled out the gun from The Shark Trial and has aimed it at his head.)

Madison: No, Ethan no!

(Ethan shoots himself and dies, slumping over. Madison rushes over to his body in shock.)

Requirements Edit

TriviaEdit

  • This can be considered Ethan's third worst ending because he cannot cope with losing his sons despite having the opportunity to build a new life with Madison. It can be considered Madison's neutral ending because she is ready and willing to build a new life with a man she loves, but is forced to deal with the shock and grief of losing him instead.
  • This ending is very similar to "Origami Blues," with the only difference being that Madison has died or Ethan has rejected her in the latter.
