It was more like a kiss and then you exit the animus and when you enter it again connor is 5
I would've guessed he was a little older than 5. I was guessing 8-10 range, but I guess it doesn't matter. Anyway, I agree that the whole scene was kind of weird. Seeing as how I knew Connor was part Indian and British, I knew that she was his mother when she first started becoming a part of the story, but the whole time I was thinking, "There's no way she'll do anything with this guy." Then she does.
