Operation Splinter

In chapter 6 of Operation Splinter in the iStory, the Primatech and Pinehearst contractors arrive at the dam's control shed ten minutes after beginning their trek through the Alaskan forest. In the shed, there are four closed-circuit camera displays: The first display, labeled "Generator Room", shows inside the dam where water roars through conduits and spinning machinery. Red Eye and Anna are there arguing. The next one, labeled "Maintenance Chamber", depicts a large, dark room next door to the first. A group of dam workers are hiding in the chamber, armed with pipes and tools. The third one, labeled "Upper Deck", shows the top of the dam, where a dozen Kill Squad soldiers are patrolling and a truck waits at the far end of the dam. And the fourth display, noted as "Water intake", shows a row of giant grills in the water on the back side of the dam, just below the upper deck. The lake next to the back side is mostly covered by ice, but in the open patches around the grills, four men in wetsuits are tying high explosives to the water intake.

The two contractors head inside to the "Maintenance Chamber" room and talk to the dam workers first, then head next door to deal with Red Eye and help Anna. Red Eye spots them through a door and begins to use his ability on them but Anna convinces him to stop and he decides to work with them in exchange for helping Anna escape. Anna joins the workers to begin escaping and Red Eye and the two contractors head back up to the control shed to reassess the situation.

The Primatech contractor points out a blind spot where they could swim into and defuse the explosives without being shot, and Red Eye points out that the Kill Squad leaders, Lloyd, Sean, Thomas and Joseph, are getting out of wetsuits and into the truck at the far end of the dam. The two contractors then use the blind spot to sneak across the upper deck and over the railing while Red Eye distracts the Kill Squad with his ability. Once getting near the packs, the two contractors drop in the water and begin ripping out the fuses, tossing them onto the ice; but before they finish, a gunshot rings out but not directed towards them. The player spots the Kill Squad leaders on the river bank crouching around a sniper rifle as it goes off again.

Eventually, the player and Primatech contractor meet in the middle of the dam and finish defusing all the explosive packs. It is silent up top now and the contractors climb up. The Kill Squad truck and sniper are gone and bodies lie scattered across the dam. The dam workers are gathered with Anna close to the security shack near another body, and the Pinehearst contracted player and Primatech contractor rush over and kneel down to find that it's Red Eye's body. A sniper had shot him through the heart, and Anna is crying. The Primatech contractor then gets back to his feet, shakes the player's hand, and confirms that he is leaving. He points toward the far shore where the Kill Squad's truck was sitting, notes his promise to get Sean Fallon to Red Eye, and walks off in their direction. The player then looks at Anna, still crying over Red Eye's body, and tells the Primatech contractor to wait up.

The Private

In chapter 4 of The Private, Jim tells Rachel Mills that terrorists blew up Rowland dam and killed Jeremy Woo.


  • The above iStory history depicts the most optimal events from the perspective of the iStory player. As per graphic novels Red Eye, Part 1 and Part 2 and chapter 4 of The Private, Red Eye doesn't die and instead gets captured by the Kill Squad along with Anna. The Kill Squad ties up the two contractors and leaves them on the riverbed, where they watch the dam get destroyed. For the case where that occurs and the other possibilities/outcomes for the final chapter, see Operation Splinter/chapter 106 alternatives.
  • The dam is located just outside the town of Rowland, Alaska, but its actual name is unknown.
