How To Find This Very Sad Red Dead Redemption 2 Easter Egg

Red Dead Redemption 2’s world includes some nice callbacks to the first game in the main story, but also through Easter Eggs sprinkled throughout the environment. One of these Easter Eggs involves Bonnie MacFarlane, who was one of John Marston’s biggest allies in RDR1. In the Red Dead Redemption lore, Bonnie gets married, but it doesn’t work out.

In Red Dead Redemption 2, you can find a man lying by the shore of the Flat Iron Lake (see exact location below), and at first he appears dead. You poke him and he emerges from his slumber, thrusting a letter into your chest before collapsing and dying on the beach. The «Letter To Bonnie MacFarlane» appears to be written by her divorced husband.

It is very sad.

In the letter, the unnamed man apologises to Bonnie for how things get «out of control» in his head, before going on to say he and Bonnie and destined to be together. Unfortunately for him, that’s not going to happen.

Here is the full text of the letter:

«Dear Miss MacFarlane, I’m sorry. I said it. I’m sorry. You’re right. I do let things get out of control in my head. I always have. I see that but I love you. We are meant to be together. It is our destiny. I know it is. I saw us in a dream, raising kids. You were very happy as my wife and I was proud to be your husband. Dreams don’t lie and neither do I.

«I’m heading off to make my fortune and when I come back as a rich man, you’ll see what a fine husband I will make you, and a father to our children. And no, I won’t grow up. On that subject you’re wrong. I’ve got so many things to say to you. I’m going to continue with the writing of this letter later, but believe me when I say, we are destined for a long, happy life together. Even your father will come to believe it and accept me, no matter how humble my birth.»

After you’re done reading the letter be sure to loot the boxes nearby his corpse; you’ll find money, whiskey, a watch, and other items.
