Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Return to Dracula's Castle
As you return to the castle step on top of the circle and take out the Mirror of Fate.
The mirror will now be broken in 5 pieces:
Upper left piece, counter-clockwise twice and place it on the lower left part of the mirror.
Lower left piece, clockwise 4 times and place it at the very center of the mirror.
Upper right piece, clockwise twice and place it on the space at the left side of the mirror.
Upper right piece, counter-clockwise twice and place it on the upper right side of the mirror, then put the last piece in to open the door.
Head out the bridge and keep going until you reach the throne room, where another cutscene will start.
When you come back you'll have to go against the knights of the brotherhood again as you did at the very beginning of the game. They are a lot weaker than the first time. Kill them to proceed further.
After the knights you'll also have to fight the golden warrior again. Same tactics and it doesn't seem like you can die at any part of this sequence. You'll then find out what truly happened after the battle.
