Partners Flowchart - Detroit Become Human.jpg

Partners is the sixth chapter of Detroit: Become Human. This chapter has two different outcomes.


Connor was sent by CyberLife to find Lieutenant Hank Anderson and accompany him in the investigation of the murder of Carlos Ortiz, committed by a deviant. He finds the lieutenant at Jimmy's Bar and has to convince him to drive to the location of the homicide. At the crime scene, Connor needs to investigate the scene to find clues about the homicide and possibly find the deviant who committed the murder.

Attention to Detail[]

Things you can do with little to no story impact:

  • Connor looks at the mirror in the bathroom at Jimmy's Bar
  • He can also look at some of the graffiti on the wall of men's room
  • Looking at several windows at the murder scene, particularly their damaged blinds
  • Checking behind the curtain next to the bathroom


  • The songs that play in Jimmy's Bar are "Can't Leave", "C Blues" and "Straight and Narrow" by The Whiskey Charmers and "Boom Goes the Music Box" by Emily Rose.
  • When Hank drives to Carlos Ortiz's house, the song that plays in his car "Go to Hell" by Rocket 455.
  • Hank's starting relationship status with Connor is "Tense". Depending on Connor's first interaction with him, it can plunge down to "Hostile", remain "Tense", or soar up to "Neutral". This is specifically tied to how the player behaves towards his drink.
  • At Carlos Ortiz's house, the cups next to the Red Ice resemble cups from the Fast Food Restaurant, Whataburger.
  • If Connor takes his blood sample while Hank is interacting with another officer or not facing Connor, Hank does not react or even seem to notice what he's doing regardless of whether the sample is taken from the carpet or the knife.
  • This chapter bears a few similarities to the chapter "Crime Scene" from another Quantic Dream game Heavy Rain.
    • Both Connor and Norman Jayden first meet their partners they have to be with throughout the game.
    • Both Connor and Norman have to investigate a crime scene by analyzing the body and scanning the environment for evidence.
