Wake wrote an ending to his horror story and with that freed his wife from the darkness under the lake but became trapped there himself. Alan Wake is not dead, although he has wished he was many times. For 13 years he’s been a prisoner in the Dark Place, where his nightmares, his fears, and his stories manifest as reality around him.
