Assassin HQ

In the Assassin base we see a table with what looks to be the parts needed to construct a hidden blade.

At the initiation ceremony, we see several older men wearing white robes.

Potentially members of the Assassin Council.

Aguilar has a finger on his right hand removed.

This is the first time we have actually seen an Assassin have a finger removed.

The Assassins use a special chopping block to remove fingers.

Joseph in his Assassin outfit

UbiWorkshop Templar Cross in Alan Rikkin's car.

Location where Cals mother died

Young Cal has his hood up, foreshadowing his future.

Assassin necklace covered in blood.

The drawing on the left looks like a pyramid to me. Could it be a hint?

Prison location

Many of Cal's drawings are of the Spanish Inquisition.

We can clearly see Tomas de Torquemada in several of the images.

Sophia Rikkin watches Cal's execution

The number 72 can be seen on the machine. 72 is an occuring number in the Assassin's Creed franchise.

Examples: - It took Haytham 72 days to reach America.
                   - 72 was the password to gain access to the Colosseum Vault.
                    -Desmond Miles was born on the 72nd day of the year 1987.

Several people have speculated that the image of the right looks more like Connor than Aguilar.

"Aguilar de Nerha. Remains found at excavation ref 42502"         1455-1526.          
   Aguilar lived to be 71 years old., and died 2 years after Ezio.

"Aguilar de Nerha. 15th C. Member of the Spanish Brotherhood. He wore robes bearing Moorish influence. Wielded 2 hidden blades."
