At the end of The Matador Julian asks Danny for help with a last job he needs to do in order to be free and not get killed by his boss, to which Danny reluctantly agrees. But then after it's done he tells Danny that he didn't have a job and they actually just killed Julian's boss and he is safe now.
Now I wonder why Julian didn't tell this to Danny right away. It seems Danny would have had less concerns with helping to kill Julian's assassin boss, who after all wanted to kill Julian, rather than some supposedly innocent business victim. What did Julian gain by this subterfuge? Was there anything more to it apart from Julian being a nag (and a nice twist for the audience)?
