This article is littered with spoilers, so I reckon you might ought'a mosey on down the road if you don't want to read any plot details.

|Given by||Bonnie MacFarlane|
|Undead Nightmare mission strand:||Undead Nightmare mission:|
Marston agrees to check on Drew for her.
Before this mission becomes available the player must complete:
- Undead Nightmare mission: "Curious Tales from Blackwater"; and
- Clearing the undead out of MacFarlane's Ranch.
To complete this mission, the player must:
- Speak with Bonnie MacFarlane.
- Find a way into the barn.
- Kill the roaming undead in the barn.
- Locate and deal with Drew MacFarlane.
- Speak with Bonnie MacFarlane once again.
She tells John she hasn't seen her father, Drew MacFarlane, who was last seen in the barn trying to keep the undead under control. However, she hasn't seen him for a day and asks John to go look for him inside the barn.
When the player arrives at the barn, the main entrance is unable to be opened, so the player needs to find another entrance. Go left of the main entrance and there will be a ladder near the base of the windmill. Climb up and there should be a bar that John can jump and grab onto. Shimmy left so that John can pull himself up onto the walkway and go around the side of the barn to find an entrance near the top of the barn. Another way is to jump on one of the side roofs in front of the barn and climb into the window.
Once entered, there will be Undead on the ground floor. The player can shoot them from above or go down to the lower levels and kill them from there. However, fighting the undead on the ground floor can be dangerous as the close quarters can cause the player lose track of where each undead is located, leading to surprise attacks from behind or from the side.
After the player has killed all of the undead, John will proceed in his search for Drew. Drew bursts out from under some bales of hay, now undead, prompting John to grab a Winchester Repeater leaning against a stable. There is no way to hogtie or save Drew, similarly to Uncle, so you are forced to kill Drew. Be careful, as Drew is a Bruiser and can knock down John with his tackle. Once killed, the player can leave through the barn doors, back to Bonnie on the porch of her house.
In a cutscene, Marston walks up to her. He doesn't say anything about Drew as Bonnie knows enough, seeing as how he's not walking alongside John. After sarcastically saying that John always does "bring sunshine to her life", John sits down with her, saying he's sorry about her father. She says that he died protecting those he loved, with John agreeing and telling her to take care of herself. Bonnie tells John the same and walks into her house. This is the last time the player sees Bonnie in the game.
The mission will fail if the player:
- Leaves the barn before dealing with Drew MacFarlane.
- Attacks Bonnie before speaking with her.
Mission Complete UnlockablesEdit
- This mission appears to be a reference to Issue 10 of the popular zombie comic "The Walking Dead" where the character Hershel Greene attempts to keep the walkers in his barn in hopes of helping them and keeping them under control, much like Drew MacFarlane.
- Sometimes after killing Drew you can hear him say "thank you". This is odd as you have to shoot him in the head.
- When John enters the barn, a cutscene shows a Winchester repeater on John's back. John then picks up another Winchester to kill Drew with it.
- This is the first and only time John calls Bonnie by her first name in Undead Nightmare.
- Drew does not seem to have been fed upon by the undead in the barn, meaning that after being bitten he hid behind the hay bales and waited in horror for the inevitable rather then shoot himself. This is reinforced by the fact that Drew and Bonnie are religious, and suicide is a sin.
- Whether you kill Bonnie after this mission or not is up to you, but it won't affect you throughout the rest of the game.
- Drew is very similar to Sophia Peletier from "The Walking Dead" series because of the fact they were both bitten and turned, and was in a barn. Both of them also was forced to be put down by one of their friends.
