Christ, more filler.
I'm not sure I can take much more of this - the substandard voice acting, where everyone sounds the same, but just subtly different. The plot being exposed through characters talking to themselves. Eluding to an Oubliette, which is a form of dungeon, only accessible through a hatch high in the ceiling - why don't you just use the word "dungeon"?!
I know that this sort of thing needs to be done, to add some sort of continuity to the piece and give you the foundations for the next episode, but if you're going to have a monologue, perhaps have it read by a narrator. This can either be a third person (someone completely neutral to the plot; an additional character, for example) or be in the first person (since it's Drake's story, why not have him tell it?), because then the voices wouldn't be such a problem. You could have had Brutus dispatching the assassin personally, or getting a secretary to do it for him and saved a lot of issue there, for example. Sort the writing out and the rest of this would fall into place, for the most part.
