Mysterious explosions have rocked the planet, setting off a series of supernatural phenomena known as the Death Stranding. Spectral creatures that devour the living have pushed humanity to the brink of extinction, causing countries to fall and survivors to scatter and live in pockets of isolation. Sam Porter Bridges, the legendary porter with the ability to return from the world of the dead, has been entrusted to save mankind from the brink of destruction. Plagued by haunting visions, and tracked by Higgs, a man who longs to see humanity extinct, Sam must finally discover the truth behind the Death Stranding and fate of this world.

EPISODE VII – DEADMAN

(continued)

Once the winds calmed, the force of the snow flurries finally weakened. The black clouds that hung in the air all around Sam, that had seemed close enough to touch, had dissipated, but the sun was still nowhere to be seen. It had been four days since Sam had left Mountain Knot City and he had finally reached the highest peak in the mountain range. Despite the detour, he was relieved to discover that his path would indeed lead him over the summit. Yet once he reached the top of the peak that stood thousands of meters above sea level, he still found he could not see beyond the pale veil that covered the sky and obscured the world on the other side. It seemed impossible to him that a vast blue sky stretched out just beyond the clouds, slowly fading into the jet-blackness of space.

Sam remembered a conversation that he had with Bridget as a child. It was the one in which she told him all about their ancestors’ expedition toward the western frontier. About how once they had reached the western frontier, they then carried on and aimed for the next frontier—space. Finally, once they had conquered the last physical frontier, they embarked upon a quest for the electronic frontier of networks and cyberspace. “Listen, Sam,” Bridget started. “The Strand family all come from a single ancestor, who was among the first to reach America. Cultivating new places and building the infrastructure to give other people a future is in our blood. It was our ancestors who were the first to build a bridge to the island of Manhattan. That’s why I want you to build bridges, too.”

How naïve Sam Strand had been back then as he obediently nodded and promised her that he would.

But the path to space was now closed and the bridge they were now trying to build was to the world of the dead. Was that the new final frontier?

The Chiral Network was an amalgam of a network and the world of the dead. Lockne had told him all about it. A member of Bridges, she was the younger twin sister of the theoretical physics expert Mama and the co-developer of the Q-pid.

“I don’t think it’s meaningless for the Chiral Network to access the world of the dead and bring back the past we lost and everything that went with it,” Lockne had once explained. “We need to reclaim the knowledge that the Death Stranding stole from us, but if that’s all we do, then what are we doing but staring down memory lane? We run the risk of becoming bound by the past, just like Målingen and I were bound by our daughter.

“Mountain Knot City may now be a knot on the Chiral Network, but that doesn’t mean I want to go back to Bridges. I need some time to think,” Lockne told Sam. Now that Lockne and Mama had managed to untangle themselves from the estrangement caused by the misunderstanding about their dead daughter, Lockne had new paths open to her. Sam wondered what kind of options he had now.

He looked down at the empty void on his chest.

Lou, the BB whose pod normally occupied that area, was with Deadman for repairs. All that was left was empty space. Even when the repairs were complete, the pod that would be returned to Sam would no longer contain Lou, but a blank BB with no memories. There had been no other choice. And now, on top of that, Sam found himself dwelling on Deadman’s news about the shadier side of Bridges. What was he supposed to do about the fact that Bridget had carried on the BB experiments in secret? What about the past of Die-Hardman, who served her? It seemed that for now, the only option open to him was to pretend like he hadn’t heard anything and carry on with his task of transporting goods and reconnecting the Network as he went west in search of Amelie.

That was why he had battled the winds and traipsed all the way up the sides of these snow-capped peaks.

While Deadman was busy repairing Lou, Sam was to summit the mountains and head west from the direction of Mountain Knot City, to deliver some chiral allergy medication to the Geologist’s shelter. As the people stationed there continued to excavate the land, they had reported early symptoms of chiral contamination. Sam had DOOMS, so contamination didn’t bother him too much, but for normal people it could easily become deadly. Luckily, the symptoms that the Geologist was experiencing appeared to be on the milder side, but they still needed dealing with fast.

<Sam! Sam Bridges!>

A codec call came through his cuff links and jolted Sam out of his thoughts. The tone was peculiar, in that it was restless yet aloof.

<It’s me, Heartman. Can you hear me?>

Even within Bridges, Heartman knew the most about the Beach by far, but Sam had only ever been able to talk to him via wireless means or as a hologram.

<Sam, I heard that you’re currently en route to visit some old acquaintances of mine. So if I’m not mistaken, that means that you’ll be heading to my place soon after, right? I’m still not connected to the Chiral Network, but I do fall under the operational area of the network installed at Mountain Knot City, so I should be able to relay through the wireless and voice call with you even when you’re high in the mountains. Of course, once the Chiral Network is connected, I’ll be able to speak to you as a hologram too.>

Heartman was speaking at such a pace that Sam wondered if he was even closing his lips between sentences.
