The Third Way is a mission for Franklin Clinton started by Franklin Clinton from the living room in his house in Vinewood Hills, Los Santos. It is one of three choices for the final mission alongside Something Sensible and The Third Way.


Franklin, at his house in Vinewood Hills, is visited by Devin Weston reminding him of his request to kill Michael De Santa. Once Weston leaves the player is given the choice to kill Trevor, to kill Michael or to save both. The second choice triggers The Time's Come.

Franklin phones Michael and asks to meet in a quiet location to discuss something with Michael agreeing to meet him by the satellite dishes off Route 68. While Franklin is on his way to the meeting point he talks to Trevor on the phone about his decision to take out Michael on orders from Devin Weston and explains how corrupt FIB agent Steve Haines had asked him to kill Trevor. Trevor, however, responds angrily at Franklin becoming a traitor and tells him he's had enough traitors (referring to Michael) in his life already.

The two meet up at night but before they can begin talking Michael receives a phone call from Amanda telling him that Tracey has decided to go to college. After the phone call Michael explains how he has 'made it' alongside Franklin having got his children back, begun repairing his relationship with his wife Amanda and has a job he loves. A nervous and agitated Franklin then makes his intentions clear, saying that he likes Michael having risked his life on numerous times alongside him, but that there is unfinished business.

Michael gets back into his car and drives off with Franklin following Michael along the train tracks before arriving at a factory. Michael escapes up some scaffolding with Franklin following, attempting to kill Michael in the process. Michael explains that Franklin was like a son to him although Franklin responds that they were both just using each other. Michael fires two shots at Franklin before attempting to flee again with Franklin following him further up the scaffolding. Michael then climbs to the top of one of the chimneys as Franklin follows shortly behind. When Franklin finishes climbing the ladder he sees Michael holding a pistol aimed at him.

After a brief discussion Michael attempts to shoot Franklin, who runs around the chimney to evade the bullets. Michael holds his position and waits for Franklin to move but is attacked from behind and taken to the ground, losing his pistol in the process. A brief struggle ensues before Michael again breaks free. Franklin claims that he could have been killed by Michael at any point following the their last heist, having previously betrayed Trevor and Bradley Snider in 2004. Michael, however, argues that people can change as Franklin had from a two-bit gangster to a three-bit gangster. Michael again reminds Franklin that he trusted him and treated him like family.

Franklin, however, clotheslines Michael over the railing half way up the chimney. Michael, however, manages to grab the railing with one hand and Franklin then grabs his hand, as if to pull him to safety. Michael argues that he is all Franklin has got. The player can either allow Michael to fall to his death or attempt to rescue him, resulting in Michael headbutting Franklin and falling to his death. Franklin, appearing on the ground and walking away from the factory, phones Lamar Davis asking him to hang out and to ensure they are homies.


The reward for completing the mission is the beginning of the end credits and the To Live and Die in Los Santos achievement/trophy is unlocked.
