Date: Resurrection Day. Location: Unknown.
Charlotte stares into the Koh-i-Noor, whilst all around her is blood and the fallen bodies of Instruments and Assassins, including the slain Arend and Kiyoshi.
The humanoid form of Juno stands before Charlotte, with Elijah seemingly protected behind the Assassin. Charlotte warns Juno off the boy. Promising to deal with Elijah later, Juno relates that Charlotte smells of Consus, and summons the diamond towards her. Gripping Charlotte by the hair, she states that the human is not worthy of the Koh-i-Noor and that she has ultimately failed her comrades.
Modern Day: South of Barcelona, Spain. T - 3 days until Resurrection Day. Arend and Kiyoshi study the Spanish terrain, trying to find any recognizable land to help find the Koh-i-Noor. They discuss how neither of them will reach old age, and that life will constantly be in motion for the Brotherhood. An older Spanish man and woman approach them, who shortly after draw melee weapons and attempt to attack the Assassins.
Otso Berg, Galina and Charlotte continue to search the Spanish hillsides for any indications of the diamond. Charlotte mentions that she can feel something pulling her towards some nearby hills, thus they head towards them.
Arend and Kiyoshi continue to battle the old couple, whom are surprisingly well trained and adept in their combat skills. A helicopter arrives above the scene, and Jasdip Dhami leaps down to the fight vicinity, along with several members of the Instruments of the First Will - all of which are armed with assault rifles. The Assassins and old couple are forced to surrender as a result. Jasdip interrogates the older Spanish man, and finds that they are protectors of the site, originally trained decades ago by André Bolden and Ignacio Cardona themselves.
Charlotte collapses to the ground, her eyes glowing with blue energy. They are close now. Digging through the soil, they uncover the remains of a collapsed church. Charlotte descends down inside with Otso and Galina, where they discover a light shines amongst the darkness. Charlotte reaches out, and claims the Koh-i-Noor from the rubble. Drones hover above, and detect the three of them.
Made aware of Charlotte's location, Jasdip and the Instruments grab the hostages and make their way to the collapsed church. Kiyoshi uses a razor wire in his gauntlet to surprise the Instrument guards around him. A battle commences, with Jasdip and Otso immediately launching at each other. Charlotte holds the Koh-i-Noor tightly, and as she does so a bright blue glow emits from it, as well as from her eyes. Moments later, a blue energy explosion erupts around her, knocking down everyone.
