Hm, they definitely framed Janus but I guess I’m not sure whether the framing came before or after the hit. I’ll have to re-watch the cutscenes to see if it’s made clear.
It doesn’t seem like a very good plan if they killed Janus before showing the evidence to Providence. It’d look like the 47 went rogue and it’d be hugely suspicious.
Edit: I watched the briefing again and it’s very unclear. Lucas Grey says that they’ll need to search the house for clues, but there’ll be big problems if Providence learns of their presence, then 47 says “so we frame him”. I took this to mean that if they frame him ahead of time that Providence would give them the go-ahead to be at his house to search for clues. But I guess it could give retrospective justification after carrying out the hit.
One problem with my interpretation is that if Providence okayed the hit, then it’s not clear why they’d also want to take down Nolan. But Providence would probably wonder why 47 did that even if he went rogue and took down Janus on his own. This whole plan is pretty murky.
