This comment has been removed. Mixed feels, if this really is the ep3 story Valve will quickly sue/have that story removed.
Im sorta thinking its what Laidlaw wanted the ep3 story to be, but its not what it became.

This comment has been removed. If it really is Freeman's final episode it would have been a mistake regardless because the name is so well known.
