Slightly Early Death

Before the scene starts, Lawrence Washington and his brother George (the George Washington?) are prestaged. You have to locate Lawrence to progress to the assassination. To avoid locating him, turn the camera away. Both him and his brother are invincible to regular attacks, with the exception of a special attack by an ax. Getting him this way is tricky though because the game turns the camera toward him when you start swinging down with the ax, starting the scene. I try to avoid this by getting real close and making the camera face down, but not sure how reliable it is.

Here's also a clip demonstrating that the game makes them invincible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9t4yWhTALc

Blitz

The fastest way I found of assassinating the target is to fire with your pistol when he's in range. thinking it's possible to free aim and shoot from farther away.

Stunt

At the very start, climb up the gazebo wall Shay is leaning against, jump to the tree, and make your way onto the rooftop. The target doesn't get this close to the house when he loops around.

Planned Escape

Put simply, get as close to the rendezvous point with the ship before starting the memory corridor. Start by removing some enemies that could compromise you (detection results in desynch in this mission), lure the target and berserk him, then make a dash toward the ship.

After the memory corridor the escape was a little botched by two guards spawning right by Shay, but I've gotten tired of trying to do everything perfectly.

And here's an improved version of the planned escape.

I'm listening... Was it killing enemies with fire?

It was not. It was trying to kill someone that should not be possible to be killed. I never found out if you could or not. S02M04

Darn it! Wish I knew that when I was recording. You'll all have to take my word for it he can also be killed with an ax special attack.

Sorry this was so sloppy. I had recorded something else, but released this first since it's the first assassination.

Yes. It's George Washington as his brother, to answer the question.
