Twelve Minutes Insomnia

In order to cure your wife’s insomnia, you’ll need quite a few items. Get two mugs and the polaroid from the fridge. Head to the bathroom to get the sleeping pills in the medicine cabinet, and fill her mug with water and the pills. Get shocked by the switch in the bedroom, and then head to the living room. Give your wife her sleeping pills in the mug and talk about her with her book.

This process will put your wife to sleep; thankfully, all she needed were her pills. At this point, you’re going to need to question the Cop. So, it’s time to hide in the closet and watch through the blinds as the officer enters your home.

Because the wife’s insomnia is such a big issue, this is the only path that lets you solve Loop 6. You need to protect her, after all, so it’s the only method that keeps her out of your way. Questioning the cop is very brutal, as you are going to have to get violent with him. But, anything to find out what is going on, right? And at least now your wife can sleep peacefully.
