Events of Alan Wake

The doctor is first seen at the beginning of episode two where he is inspecting Alan Wake, whose head has been wounded, for a concussion. Alan tells Nelson that he is fine, but he is lying so that he is not sent to hospital. The doctor leaves as Wake goes to visit Sheriff Sarah Breaker.

Nelson was then invited to talk about his passion for fishing on Pat Maine's show at KBF-FM Radio Station, where they also had a brief conversation around lost love.

When Bright Falls is taken over by the the Dark Presence in the middle of the night, Nelson is seen by Wake and Breaker in his apartment, where he is yelling about all the commotion, which he believes to be caused by Deerfest. Breaker tells Nelson to just hold up for a while and that the commotion will be over soon.

He can be seen at the end of the game, celebrating Deerfest next to Pat Maine and also appears in Special 2: The Writer as a memory re-enacting the moment he encountered Alan in Episode 2: Taken
