On Ubi's official Assassin's Creed forum there was a topic in which the OP was asking if anyone knew a "clean" way of killing La Touche in this sequence, so no detection and using the hidden blade to kill the target. Since this is very hard for this target, a "challenge" was made. And as a hiddenblader I obviously had to rise to the occasion Tongue
Thought you guys might also be interested in the result.

The video is pretty straight forward on how to do it. I try to aim my second money pouch on the railing/bannister of the stage to get the biggest crowd on the execution stage. Then I try to aim the 3rd money pouch just right so that there is a blend group I can use to walk onto the stage undetected but still leave enough people on the stage so that I can blend there. I position myseelf behind the guillotine so that the guard opposite La Touche does not see me. I quickly check to my left to see if any guards are looking at my direction, and if not, I throw the cherry bomb. It has to be just far enough so that none of the guards to the left of the stage get distracted. I then walk up to La Touche and kill him. After the cinematic I quickly exit the stage using the cart and I walk into the crowd without the guards noticing me.

Assassins Creed Unity Sequence 4 Memory 1 The Kingdom of Beggars la Touche Assassination.

In Arno's hunt for the King of Beggars he first meets la Touche, a Templar agent working for him. Although it was intended you spare his life and assassinate him later in the game, it is indeed possible to kill him without failing the mission.

Locating la Touche

At the beginning you have to find la Touche. This is the first opportunity to attempt an assassination. You can't get close to him without starting the scene, so I berserked a guard to go after him. Alas, la Touche can be targeted but not attacked. The poisoned guard stays there for the scene and afterward.

Another thing about the scene is you can use the disguise skill during the beginning and not lose it until the scene is partway done.

Tailing la Touche

Following the target, you cannot kill him without desynching. During this I show a short conversation he has with Marquis de Sade, who first appeared during the previous scene. At first I tried getting in the huddle of the conversation with a money pouch, but then the target walks past and the conversation gets skipped.

My attempt at getting away with an assassination at this part is to kill la Touche right as a scene is starting. This proved hard as either I would desynch or the scene would start before I could perform the kill. The closest I got was starting a low profile hidden blade assassination as the scene was starting. Arno continues the animation during the scene, stabbing midair. There is also no blood on la Touche, so I wouldn't count it count it as a kill. Standing by the entrance of the gate also gets Arno in the scene.

The Early Death of La Touche

Now that you're done tailing la Touche, all there is left to do is interrogate him to find out where le Roi des Thunes is. After that scene, la Touche remains shackled to the wall. He still has the regular guard AI, which allows you to lure him with gunshots and cherry bombs (gunshots are more effective, but be wary of other nearby guards who will be drawn to you).

Sometimes la Touche will lean over the wall when investigating. If he goes far enough you can target him for a kill. Depending how, the target will die on either side of the wall.
