Tensions are running high in the Assassin Cell as Charlotte's investigation is plagued by the limitations of the portable Animus. When she turns on Kody, Galina leaps to defend him. With tempers at breaking point, can the team pull themselves back together before they are torn apart for good?
2016: Charlotte is pulled from the Animus at Galina's request. Apparently Charlotte entered the machine unsupervised, and it has again run out of battery power. New batteries are required, but Galina advises that they should all stay put whilst the Templars know their faces. After a brief argument, Charlotte takes off in search of the batteries alone, leaving the others alone in the van.
Whilst opposing forces makes their plans to find our heroes, Charlotte defends a civilian from a racketeer. Feeling good about herself, she again goes in search of the batteries, but notices someone following her. It ends up being Galina, who explains that she had come in search of Charlotte. However, having returned to the van, Kody had apparently been kidnapped, leaving only a severed ear. The two have been demanded to attend a cartel location, and set off to rescue Kody.
1536: Quila and Pardo are held captive. Pardo manages to antagonise their captor until a fight ensues, attracting nearby Peruvians to their plight. They both manage to escape, but the quipu is destroyed in the process. As they arrive at Cuzco, the capital city, they part ways, with Quila desperate to warn the Emperor of his peril. She is unable to persuade the guards to grant her an audience with the Emperor, namely with no quipu as evidence and thus she is forced to turn away.
She ends up visiting the home of her former husband, Ayar. After reflecting on their failed marriage, and how it brought shame on Ayar's family, she seeks to speak to Ayar's father who still holds considerable political power. Making her case to warn the Emperor, she again has no evidence, with Ayar's father questioning her motives given the history with his son. Pardo bursts into the meeting drunk, at which point Quila is deemed a conspirator with the Spanish and is seemingly captured once more.
