While some GTA players are already looking forward to GTA 6, others are still trying to make the most of their remaining time in Los Santos.

After all, if you don’t enjoy trying to predict the next game’s release date, lack any hot takes regarding what it should include, and have given up on planning out your first playthrough, why not just try to appreciate the final stretch of GTA Online?

Many players who aren’t being plagued by spam messages are currently doing so by taking a break from filling their 50-car garage with interesting automobiles to delve into the freshly released Last Dose, though one character's inclusion in these psychedelic adventures has left some of them unhappy.

Are you sad that Rockstar brought back Dr Friedlander for GTA Online’s Last Dose missions?

Their drug-based disappointment forms the subject of a recent thread on the GTA Online subreddit, which was kicked off by a post from user Bones-Ghost, who asked: “What are your thoughts on Pube Head, I mean, Dr. Freelander? returning?”

A bunch of fellow criminals responded by declaring that they aren’t fans of the decision to bring back Michael’s story mode psychiatrist for an online expansion, with user donqon explaining: “I'm not really a fan of when they bring back characters that we had the option of killing in side quests.”

Some users suggested that they’d have been happier to see their decision to murder the doctor made non-canon if they had the choice to pursue that path again during The Last Dose.

On the other hand, user societaljker argued: “(It’s) very random to have Friedlander back, but I guess he is the only known character in the GTA V universe that is related to psychology, so (it) kinda makes sense he’s the maniac trying to mind control people through drugs.”

Regardless of how you feel about the goatee-sporting boffin’s return, jumping back into Los Santos and completing all five Last Dose missions he’s involved in will currently earn you a free supercar, in the form of the electric and Imani Tech-eligible Ocelot Virtue.

For those who prefer a ride that’s a little more old school, there’s also the chance to buy the Willard Eudora, though you’ll have to act fast, as, unlike the Virtue, it’s only available via Southern San Andreas Super Autos and Simeon’s Premium Deluxe Motorsport showroom through March 29.
