Cynthia Corrupted is one of the Collectables found in Alan Wake 2. It is one of the pages of the Return manuscript.


Cynthia Weaver hated being old. She'd been a doer. A fighter. Now the bathroom frightened her. Afraid she'd break her hip, like Norman.

Cynthia had always kept her lantern close. To hold the darkness at bay. "Oh dear... my lantern, I think I've lost it," Cynthia said. "This will put a smile back on your face, my dear," a voice said. A man's voice.

Someone in the bathroom with her. In the dark. The lightbulb had blown. She meant to replace it days ago. How could she forget? She had slipped getting out of the tub. She lay in the tub now. She lifted her hand. It looked wrong. Too many hands.

In a black void, with no sense of up or down. She was underwater. A dark shape pushed her down. Dark water pressed itself into her. She screamed. It came out in bubbles.

  • Location: Bright Falls (Valhalla Nursing Home, basement)
  • Can be found on a table just outside the Storage. A short cutscene will play with Alan's presence narrating a few lines from the manuscript.
