The citizens, rallied by Niccolò Machiavelli, La Volpe and Paola massed in front of the Palazzo Pitti, to confront Girolamo Savonarola. Weakened by the loss of his lieutenants, Savonarola tried to use the Apple to subdue the crowd. Ezio Auditore prevented Savonalora from using the artifact by throwing a knife and injuring his hand. As soon as the artifact left Savonarola's grip the crowd carried him away to Palazzo della Signoria. A Borgia guard tried to steal the fallen artifact, only to be killed by Ezio.
Ezio met with Paola, La Volpe and Machiavelli.
- Paola: You've done well, Ezio.
- Ezio: What happens now?
- Machiavelli: Watch.
Savonarola emerged from the Palazzo Pitti and faced the crowd.
- Savonarola: Silence! I demand silence! Why are you here?! Why do you disturb me?! You should be cleansing your homes. Cleansing your SELVES! There are bonfires to feed! Prayers to be said! Penance to be done!
Savonarola rose the Apple.
- Savonarola: You will do as I command! You will SUBMIT!
Ezio threw a knife, injuring Savonarola's hand and causing the Apple to fall to the ground. The crowd began to carry the monk away.
- Savonarola: NO!
- La Volpe: Find the Apple, Ezio! It can't be far.
A Borgia agile guard picked the Apple up and fled. Ezio chased and killed the guard and retrieved the Apple.
Ezio Auditore re-obtained the Apple. Savonarola was taken away by the citizens of Florence as they attempted to execute him.
