Go back and see Betty in the same location she’s been this entire time — the playground at the center of the small neighborhood. She’ll be most thankful of the work you’ve been doing, and you can continue to pry with the doctor controlling her about just what’s going on, learning just a little more about the situation here. But Betty — we mean, Dr. Stanislaus Braun — has another activity for you. This time, he wants you to kill Mabel Henderson. And you have to do it in a clever way, not with your fists. Oh my!
Mabel Henderson’s house is located on the other side of the Simpson house (the Rockwell house being on the other side, thus the Simpson house being in the middle of the two). Head on in there and, before doing anything, go into the kitchen. Examine the stove and fiddle with the pilot light. Just what’s going on here? Well, this is a clever way to kill Mabel (though there are others, if you can figure them out). Speak with Mabel hereafter and ask her to make you one of her famous pies. She’ll agree and head into the kitchen to pre-heat the oven. When she does this, she’ll be met with an untimely death. Poor Mrs. Henderson, flaming to death on the kitchen floor.
Your time on the demented Tranquility Lane is coming to a close. After Mabel’s demise, go back and speak with Betty once more, who will commend you on a job well-done. She tells you there’s only one thing left to do, and then you can have whatever you want. She wants you to kill everyone — everyone — on Tranquility Lane. Oh my! And doing so will require that you grab a mask and knife that Betty has hidden for you near a doghouse at the abandoned house on Tranquility Lane. So what are you waiting for? Go grab your gear!
Seek out the abandoned house — there’s a gate around the house, no one inside, and a doghouse to the right of the house. Examine the doghouse and you’ll find yourself automatically equipped with a creepy mask and a gigantic butcher’s knife which will be used to execute everyone on Tranquility Lane. Then, try to systematically go around and kill everyone in each house, following each character if they run away from you, especially if they run outside (this will confuse things intensely if you let them go).
Having fun? Well, we hope so, because you’re losing a hell of a lot of karma from doing this, but you need to get out of this virtual insanity (an odd Jamiroquai reference) and get back to your primary mission. So, killing everyone is your only choice. You don’t have to waste time going back to Betty each time you kill someone to see if you killed everyone — as long as you pay close attention to your screen, you can see that the objective has been successfully completed when the last person is killed (it’s important to pay attention since you can’t consult your Pip-Boy to see what’s going on).
When the last person is killed, visit Betty at the playground and she’ll congratulate you on a job well done. Since you’ve done everything the evil doctor has asked, he’s agreed to let you and your father (who was the dog in the playground) out of virtual reality, where they can thereafter return to the Capital Wasteland. Good to have all of that fake (yet real) blood off of your hands.
When you’re back in reality, exit your virtual reality pod and engage your father in conversation. This can be a lengthy conversation, as you can poke and prod your father for all sorts of interesting information about Project Purity, your mother, Vault 101, and the realities of this post-nuclear world. Once you’re done speaking with him, you can then follow him as he books it out of Vault 112 and back to the surface. Once on the surface, this mission comes to an end. It’s time to head back to Rivet City and meet up with the famed Dr. Li once more.
