This is regarding the ending of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. I have marked the question below as a spoiler, so please do not hover over it if you haven't played through the game yet!

At the end of the game, Desmond is forced to kill Lucy. Prior to him stabbing her, you basically button-mash until he makes the strike. Is there an alternate ending or a way to avoid killing her, such as a sequence of buttons to break free?

For context, I have only recently finished Brotherhood, and have not begun Revelations yet, so I'd appreciate any answers that avoid future-game content.

Also, did you solve all the glyph puzzles? If you haven't do it. – Gmoneyrocks Mar 31 '13 at 7:01
Yup, solved all of them. That was pretty awesome. – Gigazelle Mar 31 '13 at 7:05

There's no way to avoid that outcome.

How do I use the spoiler tab? – Gmoneyrocks Mar 31 '13 at 7:20
I never said spoiler tab.. I said spoiler tag, which I edited in for you.... might help to edit your answer and see the changes I made. – deutschZuid Mar 31 '13 at 11:28
It's worth noting that specifics about this sequence are all explained in some DLC for Revelations, too. – Shinrai Mar 31 '13 at 17:03
