The Plot of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
The game follows Ethan Winters, who goes to Dulvey, Louisiana, in search of his wife, Mia, who is said to be dead since 2014. He visits a neglected plantation and finds Mia alive in the basement. He tries to rescue her, but suddenly she attacks Ethan. Ethan, in his defense, has to kill her. After killing her, the phone rings, and a woman named Zoe answers him and tells him that she will provide assistance.
When Ethan goes back to see Mia’s corpse, she gets revived and attacks him once again. In this fight, Mia cuts Ethan’s left hand. Ethan once again kills her in self-defense.
After the fight, Jack, head of the Baker family, arrives and captures Ethan. Zoe reattaches the left arm of Ethan, and after that, he wakes up on a dining table of the Baker family. The family includes Jack, his wife, Marguerite, his son, Lucas, and an old woman in a wheelchair in a catatonic state. Ethan tries to run away inside Jack’s house, where Jack pursues him. If harmed, Jack regenerates quickly. Ethan finds the basement, where he finds some mutated creatures called Molded.
Zoe then reveals herself to be the daughter of Jack and the bizarre situation regarding her family. She explains that her family is infected, and so is Mia. Ethan will need a special serum for the cure. For special serum, Ethan travels to an old house for the ingredients. There he defeats Margeruite and gets a vision of a girl. Ethan gets all the ingredients and returns to Zoe. After getting to Zoe, Ethan learns that Lucas has captured Zoe and Mia as hostages. Lucas forces Ethan to traverse around a barn filled with monsters and booby traps. Ethan does so and even outsmarts Lucas, which results in him fleeing. He then rescues Zoe and Mia. Zoe is able to produce serum, but only two. Suddenly, Lucas arrives in a heavily mutated form, where Ethan has to use one of the serums to kill him.
Ethan now has to choose between Mia or Zoe for the remaining one serum.
If Ethan chooses Mia, then Zoe gives him a bitter farewell, and Ethan will leave with Mia on a boat. During their travel, they find a crashed tanker. A creature attacks them, and Ethan gets knocked out in the process. Mia wakes up and starts searching for Ethan. During the search, she regains her memory about her involvement in a bio-weapon, where she had to oversee it. The bio-weapon is called Eveline, and she was on board the tanker ship, being transported to Central America.
Eveline somehow escaped and infected Mia. Mia finds Ethan and gives him a vial of Eveline’s DNA. Eveline starts taking control of Mia, which she somehow resists. Mia rescues and seals Ethan out of the tanker to prevent her from hurting him.
If Ethan chooses Zoe, then he will leave with Zoe on the boat. Zoe reveals about Eveline and tells him that she is the reason, all the bizarre stuff is happening. Eveline arrives and stops Ethan and Zoe’s escape. She kills Zoe and knocks out Ethan.
Mia then starts searching for Ethan and finds him. Mia gives him the vial of Eveline’s DNA. When Eveline takes control of her, this time she does not resist due to her getting betrayed by Ethan. She attacks Ethan, and this time he finally kills her.

Resident Evil 7 Ending Explained
After either choice, Resident Evil 7 merges during the end. Ethan leaves the crash site and finds a hidden laboratory in an abandoned salt mine. Ethan now learns fully about Eveline. He learns that she is a bio-weapon of E-class. Eveline can infect people with psychotropic mold, and this allows her to control people. Eveline wanted a family, and this became her obsession. Due to this, she infected the Bakers family and Mia.
Ethan uses the equipment of the laboratory and Eveline’s DNA to create a toxin capable of killing her. Now with the toxin ready, he makes his way through a tunnel. He reaches the original abandoned farmhouse. Eveline learns of Ethan’s plan and starts assaulting him with powerful visions and hallucinations. Ethan, after all these, reaches and injects toxin in Eveline. Ethan learns that the unnamed old lady in the wheelchair was Eveline the whole time.
One twist develops at this point in the game, the toxin, instead of stopping Eveline, helps in further mutation, which makes her into a giant monster. Ethan fights her but only kills her when a military helicopter drops a special weapon.
After all this is over, Chris Redfield, Blue Umbrella Corps Alpha team leader, arrives and rescues him. The ending depends on the choice of Ethan. If he chose Zoe, then Ethan will be alone in the Helicopter grieving over the loss of both Zoe and Mia. If he chose Mia, then Mia will also be rescued by Redfield’s team. The game ends with the helicopter flying away with the logo of Blue Umbrella.
