Plot

Following Rogue's arrest, the team were tasked with the protection of Pope Antonio Rizzo during his visit to the colosseum in Rome. When the player and Riya arrived, they decided to check the area for any signs of danger. They then found the body of charioteer Venanzio Gotelli, tied to two pillars and whipped to death. They first asked Antonio if he saw anything before suspecting fellow charioteer Crescenzia Valentin and lawyer Amanda Prince. They then learned from Riya's fiancé, lab chief Anthony Rosewater, that the victim lived in the Amore Square district of Aurelia.

The team then headed to Aurelia where they suspected the victim's wife Lola Gotelli and café owner Adelaisa Grimaldi. As the team reconvened by the Amore canals, they were informed by local police officer Vito Panzica that someone had been spotted disposing of objects in the canal. Finally, with the help of the Aurelian Law Enforcement Agency, they were able to arrest Lola for her husband's murder.

Lola confessed to killing her husband, saying that she committed the crime in a moment of pure rage. Lola told them how the marriage was difficult, with Venanzio often having affairs and neglecting her. After a few years, Venanzio reached out to Amanda for a divorce so he could marry a waitress he'd met in a local café and leave Lola with nothing. Lola confessed that she went to the colosseum and pleaded with Venanzio to change his mind. When he refused, Lola snapped and tied him up, whipping him to death. In court, Lola apologized for her actions, saying that all her anger came flooding out at that one moment and that she saw red. For her crime, she was sentenced to five years in prison by Judge Emerson.

Post-trial, Anthony told the player that he wanted to surprise Riya as their wedding was fast approaching. The pair then decided to head back to Aurelia to book a romantic gondola ride for the couple. After booking the ride, they spoke to Adelaisa about buying a bouquet of flowers which she displayed in her café. Adelaisa then gifted them the flowers and Anthony invited Riya to the canal.

Meanwhile, Antonio informed the player and Connor that he'd been sent a threatening note. The pair then searched the chapel at Antonio's request and found the note, which revealed someone planned to bomb Rome. They then decided to send the note to Imran who reluctantly confessed that he wasn't able to recover anything from the note except a strange symbol in the corner. Penelope then confessed that she knew what the symbol was, saying it was a crest belonging to the Nicola family of Athens. With this new lead, the team decided to head to Athens to investigate the Nicola family.
