Emmett Taken is one of the Collectables found in Alan Wake 2. It is one of the pages of the Return manuscript.


Emmett Elwood had had enough. All his life he'd been surrounded by the same small-minded, impolite, ignorant people in town. Their endless gossip. Their nose-picking. Chewing food with their mouths open. Not washing their hands after visiting the restrooms. Touching things. Touching everything.

The world was going to hell. He'd watched day after day how all the nice things in life, in Bright Falls, were spoiled and ruined forever. There would be a just and terrible reckoning. Emmett had imagined many times how he'd make them pay. He had lovingly tended his anger. Made it grow hotter.

It was out in the open now. Ugly and slobbering, they reached at him with their unwashed hands. He'd beat them down. Beat them until they no longer moved. And then he'd wash his hands with a strong antibacteria disinfectant.


The page depicts...


  • Location: Bright Falls (Valhalla Nursing Home, basement)
  • In the nursing home basement, it can be found on a red box northwest of the Workspace, just south of the crawlspace passage to the Storage.
  • Emmett was originally going to be a Nursing Home resident with a bigger presence, but was cut from the final game aside from the manuscript page. He has further mentions in unused game files and a design featured in a concept art by Oliver Ödmark.
