    Summary

    Hank seeks oblivion after a rough case brings up a lot of memories. Connor interferes, and offers a mutually beneficial arrangement. 

    "I told you already, remember? I'll be whatever you want me to be. Your partner, your buddy to drink with, or..."

    "My fuckbuddy," Hank said, interrupting him.

    Something in Connor's face shuttered. Hank had the briefest of moments to wonder if maybe — and then Connor nodded. "Yes," he said. "Your fuckbuddy."

    Summary

    When Connor deviated and spared Markus during his speech after the andriod demonstration, he went off the face of the earth and hid. Hid from Cyberlife, hid from the authorities, and hid from the world. He felt… ashamed. Embarrassed. Disappointed. In his actions, and in himself. He wanted to curl up in a ball and self-destruct but he couldn’t. So he went to the only place he knew he can ask for help.

    But what interests Hank the most is whether or not machines are capable of redemption.

    (or the aftermath of a playthrough where Connor remained a machine, spared Hank, spared Markus, and didn't become a deviant until after the success of the peaceful android revolution)

    Summary

    A few weeks have passed. Androids are officially recognized as an intelligent species and deserving of human rights and duties. Life begins to normalize but only slowly.

    Hank Anderson is having the worst time of his life. His growing friendship to Connor, Android Sent by CyberLife, came to halt when Connor joined Jericho. Hank has to deal with a new partner and with more than twice his usual workload - half of the Detroit City Police Department is out of order or town and in addition to homicides, he has now also to investigate crimes against androids.

    Change comes with challenges, something Hank embraces despite his growling but also something Connor has to learn.

    Maybe there are more than pragmatic reasons based on assumed efficiency for his return to the DCPD. But figuring out his new state of being is on the backburner. Androids are getting killed by what seems to be hate crimes. After all, changing right doesn't equal acceptance, as still too many humans - even in the police department - aren't shy to demonstrate.

    Summary

    'Linking memories with the Tracis’ had unexpected side effects on Connor. The Eden Club had the policy of deleting the memories of their androids every 2 hours but gaining 2 hours’ worth of the memories of more than 5 Tracis left Connor with a bounty of information about human intimacy. Information he did not understand, and that made him curious.'

    Torn between trying to understand a wave of new desires and uncovering the deviant movement as hackers destroy all the information they can access about deviants, Connor has to come to terms with the fact that maybe he isn't as much of a machine as he thought.
