The Boston Tea Party Caper is the fifth episode of Season 2 of the Netflix Carmen Sandiego series.

Summary

Carmen, Ivy, and Zack reminisce about the caper that first brought them together: catching V.I.L.E. with a stash of counterfeit cash.[1]

Plot

As Carmen's team look at a building for a possible stationary HQ, they tell Shadowsan how they all met on their first heist: the Donut Shop Caper. One year ago, Zack & Ivy were a brother-sister racing team trying to earn prize money so they could get out of Southie, but after Zack loses against his rival, Trey Sterling, and busts up his car in the process, the siblings had to ask gangster Sharkhead Eddie for help, as he was the one who loaned them the money for the car. Eddie gave them a simple job, to rob a donut shop which was a front for, according to Eddie, the Mob. It was there they first encountered Carmen, who had to keep them safe as V.I.L.E. used the donut shop as a front for printing money with stolen treasury plates. V.I.L.E.'s plan was to print money as a way of buying prime real estate in Boston to expand their influence and enterprises. Despite Carmen's efforts to keep them away, the siblings still aided her in finding and destroying V.I.L.E.'s money printings, making their own tea party. Realizing they have nothing in Boston, and to avoid Eddie, the siblings opt to join Carmen on her globe trotting capers. Hearing their story, Shadowsan adds that the V.I.L.E. Faculty had no idea how dangerous Carmen was to them. Following the story, Player relays V.I.L.E.'s plan to steal the world's fastest electric car in Dubai, and the team sets out.
