When replaying the prison mission, this struck me:

As a way of thanking him, Connor promises Mason to help him once he gets out of prison (can't remember the exact phrase). Did I miss anything from that point on or did Connor just forget that promise? I don't think he helped him after he got out, am I right?

"...and if I had no self-awareness, I think I'd know."

Well to put it simply..you gotta do whatcha do. Connor had to lie if he was gonna get to Hickey( was that tomas hickey? Can't remember..)

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which

Yes, that was Thomas Hickey. But it didn't seem right to me that Connor would just use Mason to get out of prison, even though Mason wanted to help him save

Connor did break his promise, didn't he?

Not everything Connor did was in the game.

For example... Connor never meets and helps Aveline from Liberations, even though in Liberations Aveline travels to New York and meets Connor.

Simply put, I don't know. But just because something's not shown doesn't mean it didn't happen. Connor helps everyone... if it also helps himself, anyway.

A simple excuse Ubisoft can make is: The Animus reads important DNA information that is viable to the user. Completing SPECIFIC memory sequences will unlock more information that fits the user's desired goal. Keeping the promise to the prisoner and the memories with Aveline (those of which take place during AC3 when Connor is still a young Assassin) aren't detrimental to Desmond's goal of finding the Key. They diverged too far from the line of Connor's life where he was completing events that would lead him to the Key.
