|Played As:||Madison Paige|
Madison wakes up from a bad dream, citing her insomnia. The player as Madison, attempts to get back to sleep by taking a shower, drinking some juice, etc. Before long, Madison will find the fridge door open and uneasily close it. Before long masked intruders break in and try to murder her. Madison attempts to call for help, escape, and fend off the intruders. Eventually, she is cornered and murdered only to awaken from the nightmare.
Depening on how well the player executes the QTEs (Quick Time Events), Madison may die at different times during the chase. Get enough correct and she'll "die" in her bathroom.
- This is the first chapter to introduce Madison Paige.
- This chapter is famous for its scene involving a naked Madison taking a shower. It is not normally possible to view frontal nudity in this scene but her breasts and buttocks are always visible.
- When Madison is naked after the shower, it appears that she is still dirty. Similar to Ethan Mars in the chapter 'Prologue' when he takes a shower. However, upon closer inspection, the 'dirt' is simply water left on her body.
- While Madison technically 'dies' in this chapter the death occurs during a nightmare and is ultimately unavoidable, this makes her 'death' the only death of a playable character that does not end the character's involvement in the rest of the events of the game.
