Explore Dylan's cell if you'd like – there's an interesting recording to be found – but when you're done, head back through the way you came then drop down to the fourth floor to use the nearby Control Point to fast travel back to Central Executive, then head into the Board Room and speak to Emily to see what the hell's going on. Afterwards, go up the stairs into the guarded room to find Dylan (pictured above).

After speaking to Dylan for the first time, you have the option of speaking to him a few more times to exhaust the dialogue. When you're done, use the Control Point to fast travel to Logistics in Containment, then follow the signs for Security, the same way you travelled on the way to the Panopticon. When in the main security room, look for the door on the second floor which has signs for both the Prime Candidate Program and the Transit Corridor (pictured above). Now you've got level six clearance, you can go on through.

Follow the corridors until you find the huge room which is like an optical illusion, with a tunnel of squares that curves off into the distance. There's a mini-boss enemy to take out here along with a bunch of smaller Hiss, so plough through them then take the third door on the right (pictured above).

Find the Ordinary AWE area

There's a few collectibles – including a new outfit – to find here, so I'd recommend exploring thoroughly. When you're done, leave through the other door and take a right turn towards the Ordinary AWE. There'll be some more Hiss to kill up the stairs, followed by an elevator to the right with a surprise in, which will take you to the Transit Corridor.

When you leave the elevator, be prepared for another fight against some more Hiss enemies, then make your way forward and cleanse the next Control Point. Now use Levitate to cross the gap to the turntable.

A few Hiss enemies will spawn, so take them out, then as you explore the area, watch out for the Astral Entity on the ground floor. You're looking for the control panel to rotate the turntable tracks, which is to the north-east side of the room, up the stairs marked Bridge Operator. Hit the big red button to find out that something is stopping it from rotating all the way.

Levitate down to the turntable and shoot the clumps of mould that are preventing it from rotating, then head to the other end of the turntable and do the same thing when it stops moving again. Keep moving forward then go down the stairs on your right.

Continue towards the Ordinary AWE area

As you move through the next room filled with machinery, another Hiss Distorted will spawn, so deal with that as best you can. Make sure you dodge the ranged attack or you'll take serious damage. Go through the double doors at the end then up the stairs to find a large hangar.

There's three power sockets here with a number of power supplies dotted around the place, so insert them all into the vacant sockets then take the elevator in the corner up toward the Ordinary AWE.

As soon as you step out of the elevator, get your pistol ready because there's a bunch of different Hiss enemies out here. Head down the corridor and use the red button in the security office to open the door, then keep following the signs for Ordinary AWE. There's a few more corridors to navigate and enemies to kill, followed by a Control Point to cleanse. Go down the stairs and hit the big red button.

Cross to the other side of the model Ordinary, then get ready to fight as you reach the exit because a bunch of Hiss will spawn behind you. Take them out then head back to the exit, going through the offices with boxes until you reach the Ordinary Dump.

When you enter the Dump, a bunch of Hiss will spawn. Deal with them as you please,  then head into Darling's bright yellow mobile lab to search for the Slide Projector. Interact with the terminal on the desk to start a cutscene and begin the next chapter.
