Mission synopsis

The start of the mission will begin with Michael at therapy and then a few montage shots of the city. Simply let the cutscene play out.

At the start of the playable portion of this mission, you will be in control of Franklin. He and Lamar are here to take back a couple of cars to Simeon’s dealership. You can choose either of the cars here, Lamar will drive the one that you do not choose.

This will begin the driving section of the game. Remember that one of the requirements for the Gold Medal is for the car to have minimal damage, so make sure to drive carefully.

For now, all you have to do is follow Lamar.

While passing through the film studio while following Lamar, make sure to avoid the alien actors on the road for another Gold Medal objective.

Make sure to remember this as another Gold Medal objective is to use his ability for a total of 7 seconds.

Eventually, Lamar will mention to go left to go through a parking lot.

Instead of listening to him, you can turn left at the next intersection after coming out of the tunnel.

Head past the Arcadius building and into the parking lot across from it. You will then be notified if you’ve won the race with Lamar or not. There will be no time to breathe though, as once Franklin and Lamar finish exchanging words, they will be pursued by the police.

Don’t forget to avoid any damage to the car for the Gold Medal!

Try to lose the cops and stay out of their sight. After a bit of waiting outside of their radar, they should give up the search. Once you’re cleared, head to the yellow marker to meet up with Lamar at Simeon’s dealership.

You will arrive at a scene where Simeon is attempting to sell a car to a man named Jimmy.

You can then head out to the back of the dealership and use Franklin’s car to get to his house.

Once you arrive, Franklin and Lamar will have a brief exchange of words before Lamar goes on his own way.

You can then head inside Franklin’s room to end the mission.
