A Sequence 11 retcon; I don’t think Haytham truly intended to kill Connor even if his son was crippling his Order. Maybe he’d mistaken affection as curiosity when he let him live. Anyway, at that part where Connor’s plan stupidly gets himself injured (firing cannonballs at where you’re going to be? You didn’t think this through, boy) and succumbs to his wound during their fight. Haytham is stunned and his fatherly instincts kick in as they try to cling onto the last physical memento of Ziio.
