Escaping a surprise attack, the Assassins continue the hunt for Erudito, nursing their wounds as they do. Getting back into the Animus, Charlotte finds that the stakes are just as high for her ancestor Quila, who must find the strength, one more time, to do what she knows is right...
2016: The cartel set the location at a sports stadium. With Galina providing cover with a sniper rifle, Charlotte makes her way through taking out opposition as she goes. The two argue over radio, with Charlotte questioning Galina's leadership qualities. Kody is tied to a chair in the centre, with a gun to his head. As Charlotte closes in, a second sniper opens fire upon her. Hiding behind some barrels, she is grabbed by one of the gang members and shot in the foot. Galina lays down enough covering fire for Charlotte to briefly escape, before a helicopter sweeps in, promptly gunning down the sniper and remaining gang members.
The occupants are Templars, led by Ortega Sanchez. Realizing Joseph had warned her that they were after her, Charlotte puts a gun to her head and warns them to back off or lose their prized prisoner. She offers to turn herself over freely, so long as Galina and Kody can be set free. Ortega refuses, however, Charlotte ups her offer by suggesting she can hand over the location of the leaders of Erudito inside 24 hours. The deal is accepted and the Templars depart.

The Quipu was originally sent by a merchant he reveals, at which point Quila realises that Ayur's father must be behind the plot to kill the emperor. She pleads with Ayur to listen, but she is instead tied down as he lifts the club above her...
