With the revelation that the puppet master of the corruption in the Shanghai rite is a dangerous political figure, Black Cross is forced to take matters into his own hands as the honor of the Order is at stake. But a moment of distraction could destroy everything he's worked for!
1927: Sun reveals to the Black Cross that it was the machinations of the General. He promptly goes off in search, and kidnaps a convoy driver to interrogate. He discovers that they were ordered to kill an actress and a 'British Kid'.
Darius and Roo are still hiding out. They discuss the contents of the box, and discover a letter that reveals that the Nine had ordered the killing of Darius's father, and that the severed finger enclosed was a reminder of what happens to those that defy. Darius realizes that he is nothing more than a gift. A gangster arrives and injures them both. The Black Cross intervenes, eliminating the gangster.
Darius fires a gun into the back of the Black Cross, citing vengeance for his father. Cross tries to protest that he did it for the order, but Darius fires multiple shots into him. Black Cross stumbles and falls off a ledge, with a brief flash of his wife and child coming to mind, the scene disappears to desynchronization.
2013: Abstergo Entertainment, Montreal. Otso Berg stares at the desynchronized monitors. Violet Da Costa asks if he has had any luck. Otso reveals that the Black Cross, aka Albie Bolden, was the last known person to possess the Koh-i-noor. They had hoped that it was contained within the box carried by Darius. Locating any modern descendants of Bolden would take time, and he expressed that they should look into other matters in the mean time. Perhaps even resurrect the Black Cross title.
