My version of what could of happen (May involve Doctor Who)
Haytham: Theres no way of knowing what's on the other siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii- .... Haytham-iiiiiiiiiiid (both fall in water, but in the TARDIS pool)
Connor: We do now. (The 11th Doctor appears in the room.)
The Doctor: That the second time this week that The TARDIS had to catch someone; aren't you assassin's suppose to be experts at landing yourselves. (Both Kenways look at each other, then Edward comes in the room)
Edward: Doctor; I thought you said you were taking me to the underwater city of Atlantis for treasure; not to meet my kin. (Connor suddenly looks at Haytham)
I want Connor to hug haytham. Haytham is a stuborn, pinkies up, always right, do it my way, kind of guy to Connor. Connor is a sassy, back talkin, lit fuse to Haytham. There both being stupid and haytham should just fatherly throw up his love for Connor!^^
i'm not sure if you read Forsaken but if you haven't then , please ignore my comment. *spoilers*
in the game , at haytham's death scene , it shows connor just walking away from haytham. in the book (which is MUCH BETTER IN DETAIL THAN THE GAME!!!!) has Connor holding and hugging Haytham's body. and crying when he stabbed haytham in the jugular. unbeknownst to connor , haytham was the one who actually saved Connor from being hanged in NY. the arrow one of the fellow assassin's shot through the rope only ripped it a little - not break it. haytham through a knife and it cut down. he spared connor and saved him a lot more than the game is willing to show. =/
they both wanted to be happy together ; but both were just too damn stubborn and scared to just actually do it. haytham had his reasons ... but i still think what he was fearing could've been solved if he had only walked away when he had the chance. T_T
i read forsaken, I love it much better then the game, I know right!? He was sobbing and holding and hugging Haytham!!!! Connor even said "i made a mistake" when he killed haytham! And at the end he held the amulate and talks to haytham and his mommy! he really did love him, I know he did! They both loved each other and it pains me so much that Connie killed him! *sigh* Connors going to live with the guilt and blood on his hands for the rest of his life. That poor sweet boy. Look they didn't know each other long but they frinkin' loved each other, haytham even writes how he felt wronge to miss Connors life, he mistakes coriusity with affection.
and that's why Haytham was so pissed with Church. because Haytham wanted to leave the Order and become an Assassin -- or at least just to be with Connor. But even after all the treachery he was put through , he still was loyal to these 04 men. But Church left so easily , giving absolutely NOTHING to the cause. Haytham who had SO SO SO little to give , was giving everything he had to staying loyal. He took it as them just not giving a fuck about how he's sacrificing his happiness to stay loyal to them.
It made me depressed reading Forsaken and KNOWING the outcome of what would happen to haytham. and in the end ... connor lost EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE. he was fighting so hard for his life , thinking it would only get better for him , no matter how much HE sacrificed. as long as his people , and his other loved ones were safe , he was willing to do it. he had to kill his best friend. kill his dad. achillies died. his people ran out. he worked all his life with little next to anything , and came out much less than what he started with.
i just wanted them to be together. they both sacrificed themselves so willingly , and came out empty handed. i just wish they had someone ... they deserve AT LEAST that. T_T
One of the best bits... has anyone noticed that the games get funnier (sp?) as they go along? Remember Maria and Ezio? When thry went to pick up those paintings? And Malik always calling Altair a Novice... ah awesome games
I can easily guess that at the end of sequence 3, you amongst millions of gamers (Including me!!) was like, "Say Waaaah!?" after Haytham said those very words: You are a Templar.
My brother did actually say that if you play back from the beginning when you play as Haytham that there are slight hints to Haytham being a Templar, you need eagle eyes to search for this kinda stuff and unfortunately I do not
Still though, I agree with you there about Haytham! Cannot wait until November 2013! (AC IV!)
