Wayward Strand: Where And When To Find Every Character On Day Two

Quick Links

  • Morning
  • Afternoon

The second day of Casey's weekend in Wayward Strand features more interactions between the patients and staff on board the floating hospital. Not only are there new faces around, but everyone is a bit more active; many characters will spend time away from their usual location.

Day Two is busiest of the three, meaning there's a lot to see on a second or third playthrough. If you're not sure where somebody has run off to, this guide will help you track everyone's path throughout this hectic Saturday. Whose stories will you follow?

Characters' movement from place to place can be slightly delayed, usually when they stop to talk with Casey or if they're waiting for another character's conversation to finish. As a result, all times in this guide are approximate.

This guide contains minor spoilers.


Unlike the first day, you're able to freely explore from the moment you step off the elevator, at 8:30 sharp. At the start of the day:

  • Lily, Joe, Ruth, and Dr. Shen assemble at the nurses' station for a phone meeting with Mr. Pettigrew.
