Franklin and Lamar is the second story mission in Grand Theft Auto V. It is the first mission set in the present day and introduces Franklin Clinton.


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 and 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 eight hours by sleeping, change clothes in the wardrobe, or watch TV in the living room.
