I'm Not a Killer!
- The Shark Figure.
The chapter begins with Ethan arriving at the home of Brad Silver, a drug dealer he must kill to complete the trial. Ethan nervously checks the gun he brought from the box and then knocks on the door. After the second knock Silver answers the door, considering Ethan's battered state and nervousness he assumes Ethan is there for drugs. Silver yells at Ethan for trying to score at his home. Ethan pulls the gun on Silver, he backs up and tries to talk Ethan in to putting the gun down. When Ethan hesitates, SIlver punches him and grabs a shotgun hidden behind the door. A QTE starts where the player must avoid being shot. Ethan runs through the house dodging gunfire as the dealer chases him. If the player is unsuccessful, Ethan is thrown out of the house and fails the trial. If the player is successful Ethan is chased in to a child's room, where Silver runs out of shells. Realizing Ethan still has a loaded weapon Silver pleads with Ethan for his life, he shows Ethan a photograph of his daughters, Sarah and Cindy. He desperately explains he wants to see them again and begs Ethan not to shoot. The player can choose to kill Silver and complete the trial or spare him and leave but fail the trial.
If Ethan decides to kill Silver, he says, "I'm a father too," and executes Silver. He takes a picture of Silver's corpse and sends it to the the killer. Ethan immediately throws up overcome with the shock and gravity of killing the dealer, he receives a message from the killer instructing him to check the butt of his weapon, inside he finds another memory card.
If Ethan spares Silver, he will say "I'm a father too". He then knocks him out and says "But I'm no killer" and leaves.
Either way, the camera pans over to the picture of Brad's kids.
- Failure: Ethan will not get the rest of the letters, which means he will always have to guess the correct location or he can depend on Madison to tell him about the location.
- Completion: Ethan will get the next set of letters.
- The opening to 'On The Loose' will change depending whether this trial was failed or completed.
It can be assumed that this Trial is called The Shark due to how sharks are stereotypically powerful, violent creatures that are at the top of the food chain. Some sharks are also man-eaters, a possible reference to Ethan committing murder.
