Interestingly enough, there are 33 lines of character name text. It makes me wonder if the Dampierre thing is a red herring or if it's substantive and they will have more characters than will fit on the screen as of right now (31).
For now, I'll just pretend that although they've muzzled Daishi, he found a way to sneak a message to the outside.
Funny how that Ezio leak early this week has left us speculating and now this Dampierre reference is leading into more speculation. I wonder if that leak was intentional just to mess with everyone's minds. :P
