Ed Returns To Cauldron Lake is one of the Collectables found in Alan Wake 2. It is one of the pages of the Return manuscript.

Transcript[]

Ed hadn't been the same since his latest show had closed. This wasn't the first time one of his productions had shuttered early. Scathing social commentary in a one-act play wasn't exactly filling seats. When Tammy told him she was taking a research trip to Bright Falls, he had decided to tag along. Ed told her he wanted to "find inspiration." Really he just wanted a break from the city, but it was true that he certainly needed to find something. A voice. A direction. An idea. Something authentic to himself. Ed knew he couldn't keep using Tammy's money to fund his playwriting.

After the argument with Tammy, Ed stormed out of the diner and drove their rental car back to Cauldron Lake. To prove a point. Now, standing in the dark woods, the sun hidden by the trees, Ed wished he could remember what that point was. Something about masculinity. He cursed at himself and turned to go. Suddenly he was blinded by a light in his face. Voices shouted and hands pushed him to the ground. Ed struggled. In vain.

Depiction[]

This provides a backstory to Tammy and Ed Booker, and why they are in Bright Falls. This also continues Ed's story following the Bookers' meeting with Saga at the diner.
Note: there is currently a typo in the game that reads "one his" when it should be "one of his". Alan's reading of the page is correct.
