Cal Lynch (Michael Fassbender) travels back in time to 15th-century Spain through a revolutionary technology that unlocks the genetic memories contained in his DNA. There, he lives out the experiences of Aguilar de Nerha (Fassbender), a distant relative who’s also a member of the Assassins, a secret society that fights to protect free will from the power-hungry Templar Order. Transformed by the past, Cal begins to gain the knowledge and physical skills necessary to battle the oppressive organization in the present.
Enemies confront each other and a major death occurs in this episode, entitled “In the Uncertain Hour Before the Morning”. It didn’t have too much action to the episode (besides Bjorn’s storyline), but it didn’t need to have battles and violence, presenting a very dramatic and emotional episode that was just as powerful as a battlefield with Viking warriors with swords, shields, and axes in hand.
