Charlotte has to call on all she has learned from her ancestor Tom Stoddard to save her cell from decimation at the hands of Abstergo. In doing so, she learns more about herself, and more about the Brotherhood than she expected, and is forced to decide where her loyalties lie…
2015: With the realization that Joseph knows the location of Dorothy's body, Xavier and Galina have clearly been sent into a trap. Charlotte decides to go in after them, and is given the familiar Assassin hoodie attire by Kody.
She manages to infiltrate deeper into the building by tricking an employee to open a secured door. She binds the man and presses on, declaring herself to not be a killer to Kody.
Xavier and Galina locate Joseph in a cell. A battle ensues, whereby Galina suffers a leg injury and Xavier is drowned by Joseph in a nearby pool.
Charlotte intervenes, attempting to prevent Joseph from harming Galina. Joseph reveals that the Assassins are using Charlotte for her power.
A bomb explodes, evidently created by Joseph. It is assumed that Didier Hawking and most of his staff are killed.
As Templar agents storm into the room, Joseph escapes. Charlotte rescues Galina, who escapes via a ventilation shaft, as Charlotte can apparently see through walls.
On their way out of the building, Charlotte discovers the man that she bound has died. He suffered from asthma and had suffocated. Charlotte is riddled with guilt over his innocent death.
Galina advises Kody to contact Gavin Banks, an Assassin Mentor, advising that the Brotherhood needs to get to Salem as soon as possible, as they do not know if the Templars are already on their way.
Charlotte reveals that Joseph did not tell the Templars the location, as she can apparently read minds. Galina thanks Charlotte for saving her life, finally believing in the novice Assassin.
