9 years after the Ludendorff incident, Michael Townley, now known as Michael De Santa, is having a therapy session with Dr. Isiah Friedlander, discussing Michael's son Jimmy as well his past. After his therapy session, Michael sits outside on a bench in Del Perro Beach. Shortly thereafter, Franklin and his friend & co-worker Lamar Davis walk past Michael, and Lamar asks Michael if he knows where Bertolt's beach house is, to which Michael states that it's the house with the yellow stairs. Franklin berates Lamar for asking where their target lives since they are going to repossess cars for Armenian car dealer Simeon Yetarian.
Lamar challenges Franklin to a race through the city. During the race, the player learns about Franklin's special ability, which is slowing down time while driving. After stopping in a lot near the Union Depository, the police show up, and Lamar flees to the dealership, leaving Franklin with a two-star wanted level. After evading the police, Franklin returns to Premium Deluxe Motorsport, where Simeon is arguing with Jimmy De Santa over selling him a Karin BeeJay XL. Afterwards, Franklin and Lamar leave the dealership for Franklin's house.
Upon arriving at the safehouse, the game gives a tutorial related to safehouses. The player can save a car in the garage, save the game and advance time by six hours by sleeping, change clothes in the wardrobe, or watch TV in the living room.

|Winner||Win the race against Lamar.|
|We Come in Peace||Avoid hitting any aliens in the movie studio.|

- After arriving at Premium Deluxe Motorsport, the player earns the "Welcome to Los Santos" achievement/trophy.
- While following Lamar, three people resembling Carl Johnson, Big Smoke, and Ryder can be seen riding BMX's on Movie Star Way in Rockford Hills. This is a reference to Sweet & Kendl, an early mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas where CJ, Big Smoke, Ryder, and Sweet must escape the Ballas and return to Grove Street on bicycles. This easter egg can also be found in the mission Hood Safari.
- Lamar also criticises Franklin's haircut shortly before information about barber shops in the game appears on the screen. This is similar to Ryder criticising Carl's haircut as a way of introducing barber shops in GTA San Andreas.
