Getting Gold in GTA 5 Mission The Times Come – Endings and Walkthroughs

In the world of Grand Theft Auto, there is no shortage of new content and interesting missions, keeping avid gamers hooked for hours on end. Join us in this continuing series of getting gold in every damn mission in GTA 5 as we explore the final mission of the game known as ‘The Times Come’.

The Mission and a Brief Introduction

The mission revolves around meeting Michael to discuss Tracy’s future plans. After a brief altercation between Michael and Franklin, the mission comes alive as you chase Michael through the streets of Los Santos while dodging trains and other obstacles. Once you reach a rooftop, the mission reaches its climax where you have to make an important decision – save Michael or drop him.

Getting Gold in the Mission

Getting gold in this mission is straightforward but sad at the same time. The only thing you need to do is to kill Michael during the final scene to get gold. It may be worth noting that this is not the canon ending, and players can choose a different ending based on their preference. The official canonical ending is known as the ‘Death Wish’ or option C.

The Final Showdown

After a brief fight, Michael is left alone on the rooftop, and you have to make a difficult choice that impacts the outcome of the game’s story. If you let Michael live, he will come back to haunt you later in the game. Whereas if you kill him, Franklin and Trevor will move on with their lives without Michael.

The Sad but Realistic Ending

If you choose to kill Michael, you’ll witness a sad ending to a tumultuous life. In this ending, Michael’s connection to Franklin is lost, and his family is left without a father figure. Amanda invites Franklin over for dinner, and Franklin reconnects with Lamar, but the void of Michael’s absence is hard to fill.


The Times Come is not an easy mission to complete, and getting gold in it requires a specific ending. Players can choose between three endings – A, B, and C, to take the storyline forward. However, every ending comes with its consequences, and players must choose wisely. Whichever ending you choose, Grand Theft Auto 5 is a game that keeps giving and offers hours of fun and thrilling gameplay.
