Plot

The Global Protection Agency landed in Madrid, the player and Connor raced to the manor where the Halloween soiree was being hosted. As they entered, they heard screams from guests inside and hurried in. There, they found the body of Icelandic President Laufar Arndorsson, pushed onto a statue of the grim reaper, a scythe impaling his chest. Per Nia, the killer grabbed Laufar and thrusted him onto the scythe, causing the scythe to cut through the victim's heart. They first questioned politician Mikael Hartgivsson who attended the event before going on to suspect event organizer Dara O'Donnell and mysterious man Z who was staying in the same hotel as Laufar. As the pair evaluated the case progress so far, Anya told the pair that she had spotted Penelope in the Puerta del Sol public square.

At the square, they found Penelope and confronted her. When asked what she was hiding, she said that she had told them the whole truth. They then sent Penelope back to the headquarters so she didn't interfere with the investigation, further labelling Louvre curator Marc Pierre and MI6 chief Julie Trench as suspects. It was also discovered Mikael was furious with the way Laufar was running the country and that Laufar had been groping Dara all night. The duo were then speaking over the suspects when Takagi interrupted them, saying that she searched Laufar's hotel room again and recovered a file which revealed Z was a British spy working for MI6.

Z, upon confrontation, admitted the truth, explaining that his real name was Bradley Bourne and that he was a spy working for MI6. It was also revealed that Julie had ordered Bradley to monitor Laufar and that Laufar had discovered Marc had been forging paintings. Penelope also confessed that Pascal Beaulieu was her foster brother, revealing that's why she went on the warpath to capture Rogue. Finally, the team uncovered Rogue as Dara O'Donnell.

Dara eventually confessed to the crimes, confirming that she was Rogue. She then applauded the pair on figuring it out, saying they were the only ones who had ever done so. Dara told them how the same client paid her to kill Liam Vantis and Laufar, along with Mikael which she failed to do. She recounted how she organized the party to snare Laufar in her trap, ambushing and impaling him when the guests were distracted. When asked why she killed people, Dara told them she wasn't an evil person and that she only accepted offers to kill sinful people, using Laufar's proposed tax plans as an example. Connor then readied the handcuffs, prompting Dara to ask him and the player who was worse: the person who kills sinners or the person who protects them. In court, Dara pleaded guilty for her crimes, saying that all those who died deserved it. For her numerous assassinations, she was sentenced to life imprisonment by Judge Emerson.

Post-trial, Bradley requested to speak to the player. He admitted that MI6 had been investigating Laufar and that he had found a locked cryptex in his hotel room but needed Takagi's help in cracking the code. Takagi begrudgingly decided to help on the condition that all evidence be shared between MI6 and The Global Protection Agency. After cracking the cryptex and discovering Laufar was meeting someone at the party, the trio headed there and found Laufar's memory stick. Before Takagi could take it back to her lab for analysis, Bradley swiped the memory stick and thanked the pair for unlocking the cryptex. Takagi was quickly angered by Bradley's betrayal, prompting Bradley to wish her well and say he looked forward to seeing her again. The double-crossing agent then left with the memory stick in tow.

Meanwhile, Riya and the player spoke to Dara about her employer. Dara refused to give up their name, saying she was bound by her code of honour. After further interrogation, Dara let slip that was to collect the money from the Puerta del Sol public square which led the pair to head there. There, they found a bag filled with money which was sent to Anya. Unfortunately, Anya was unable to trace the money, leaving Dara's employer a mystery. Finally, Penelope apologized to the team for her actions, confessing that she was blinded by rage and grief and hadn't been thinking clearly. After the team forgave her, Logan informed the team that, following the recent events, they had been hired to protect the Pope during his visit to the colosseum in Rome.
