Rhys eventually finds the Vault Key seller, August, and his girlfriend at the designated meeting place. The deal quickly goes south, but this is where things take a decidedly humorous and very "Borderlands" twist. As Rhys sees his Vault Key potentially getting away, the player must decide to take swift action by either having him plead for a last-second negotiation or stop August by force. In this case, the latter is chosen, which leads to a completely absurd scenario that involves heart-ripping and making it rain, to which Fiona cuts into the story and promptly calls 'shenanigans.' Fiona is then asked what her account of the story was and whatever decision the player makes at this point will swiftly change the direction of where the story goes next.
