In London, Kiyoshi and his fellow Assassins review the media, where a large explosion in Berlin dominates the headlines. Kiyoshi argues that killing 170 people in public doesn't really fit with the Templar ideals, and suggests another faction might be in play. My'Shell reveals that she has a list of Pieces of Eden retrieved from the Hong Kong Abstergo lab, and pulls up an image of the Koh-i-Noor. With My'Shell convinced that it is present in the Spanish Civil War, Charlotte straps herself into the makeshift Animus. The machine appears to malfunction, with Charlotte seemingly trapped inside a simulation and unable to be woken. An injured Guernica returns to find the team surrounding the stricken Animus. He is shocked to learn that My'Shell has repaired the machine with unvetted Abstergo parts, and fears that the machine is now compromised. She makes her apologies and leaves, whilst Guernica informs the others that they will need the assistance of Felix Oladele - an Abstergo/Erudito plant based in Montreal whom is familiar with Animus extractions.
Kiyoshi and Arend make the flight immediately to Canada, and using a cargo plane perform a halo jump on to the roof of Abstergo Montreal. After working through the few guards present, they reach the office of Oladele - only to find him already slain by a high tech Assassin, the same individual from Hong Kong. The 'Assassin' wounds them both with throwing knives, and throws Arend out the nearest window which he just manages to hang onto. After a few shots from Kiyoshi's gun, the 'Assassin' jumps from the window. Kiyoshi and Arend both make their way back out, both heavily injured. The only way that the 'Assassin' could know where they were headed is if they have a leak either from the Animus or one of their own within the Brotherhood. They then decide to lay low in a safe house.
Back at the safehouse, Kiyoshi and Arend arrived to find Guernica bound to a chair by Galina, whoexplained that she found Guernica attempting to slash Charlotte's throat. She believed that he also sent the both of them to Montreal to die and have been trying to obtain information but to no avail. Arend was unwilling to take part in the torture, so he left to recuperate. Kiyoshi, on the hand, had his doubts as he had experienced the torture before. He asked Galina what information she had obtained, to which she said someone was sifting through the memories of Charlotte in the Animus. Kiyoshi and Charlotte suspected that My'shell may be on the same side as Guernica since they both came from Erudito. After a short while, Charlotte woke up from the Animus, telling both of them that she knows who was attacking them and that they need to warn the Templars.
Sometime later, Kiyoshi discovered Arend, who called the Abstergo Entertainment Customer Service to warn them about the Instruments, who had infiltrated their ranks. As they argue about Arend's actions, Charlotte cuts it to end the conversation. The Assassins were later surprised by My'shell, who had returned with the Templar agent Juhani Otso Berg. At a restaurant, Berg explained to the Kiyoshi and the Assassins about his mission in Geneva, where he met My'shell and was attacked by the Instruments. Kiyoshi told the group that Guernica may be a member of the faction, which My'shell refused to believe. Berg suggested that they work together which Charlotte accepts.
