The final episode of Life Is Strange: Before The Storm is out later this month. And if the finale is anything like the original Life Is Strange , prepare yourself for some tears.

The official release date for the episode is Dec. 20. We’ll learn what will happen with Chloe and Rachel, and maybe even see the origin of Chloe’s blue hair. Through the previous episodes of Life Is Strange , we learn Chloe is a high school dropout. She grew close with Rachel, who we also know developed a relationship with Frank, Chloe’s marijuana dealer. We can expect to see an interaction between them.

“The whole development team at Deck Nine have poured their hearts and souls into this game,” said Jeff Litchford, vice president at Deck Nine Games. “We’re truly humbled by the amount of love and passion the fans have shown so far. We are now nearly ready to release this last episode and excited to finally help fans shape the conclusion of this amazing story.”

In the second episode, we find out the women Rachel’s dad met in the park was actually her biological mother, Sera Gearhardt. Rachel was either adopted or her biological mother Sera left her father when she was a baby. Rachel’s difficult past may cause her to rebel against her parents even more and really want to leave Arcadia Bay.

And while Episode 3 of Life Is Strange: Before The Storm may be its last, the story doesn’t end there— Deck Nine Games announced a bonus episode will arrive early 2018 for those who purchased the deluxe version. The episode will include Chloe and Max’s original voice actors, Hannah Telle and Ashly Burch.

Telle and Burch took part in the voice actors’ SAG-AFTRA strike in 2017, which kept them from reprising their roles. Deck Nine Games, the studio behind Life Is Strange: Before The Storm , cast Rhianna DeVries to take over as Chloe, but are happy to bring Burch back onto the project.

“The team here were thrilled to hear the news that both Hannah Telle and Ashly Burch were able to come back together again to voice Max and Chloe,” said Litchford in a statement. “We were really happy with Rhianna DeVrie’s performance as Chloe in Before the Storm and the fan reaction to her has been great, she’ll continue to work closely with us as part of a really close team we have created.”

Max never met Rachel, so it’s unlikely we’ll see them together. Hopefully, it’s a happy flashback to a time when Chloe was happy and her father was still around. Max moving away shortly after Chloe’s father’s death really affected her. She even created a “journal Max” where she would write down everything she wanted to tell her. Even if it’s for a brief moment, we’ll be glad to see a happy Chloe and Max.
