In the new footage we see Chloe and Rachel Amber becoming closer, as Chloe becomes more jaded with the world and David's integration into her home life. The new episode looks likely to bridge the gap between Rachel's relationship with Frank, Chloe's expulsion from Blackwell and her general bemusement with life.

"As Chloe and Rachel's family life continues to crumble, their friendship blossoms and the two girls discuss running away together," Square Enix said. "But before they can go, Chloe gets involved with an errand for Frank Bowers which puts her in a dangerous situation and exposes an uglier side to Arcadia Bay."
