Carmen Sandiego Wiki

The Deep Dive Caper is the tenth and final episode of Season 2 of the Netflix Carmen Sandiego series.


Rocked by a new revelation about her past, Carmen returns to V.I.L.E. Island to uncover the truth.[1]


Carmen ventures to the now destroyed Isle of V.I.L.E. to crack the main databank. Devineaux, stranded on the island following Carmen's trail, starts a fire and is then rescued, but was fired during his absence. After recovering the data, Carmen learns her father was Dexter Wolfe, V.I.L.E. Faculty member and Shadowsan's predecessor as professor of stealth and thievery. Confronting Shadowsan, he reveals Wolfe was mostly absent as a teacher, but always delivered results. The Faculty then learned of his planning to leave V.I.L.E., ordering a young Shadowsan to remove him.

After finding Wolfe's secret family life, Shadowsan continued to monitor him, but Interpol swarmed Wolfe's home before he could carry out the mission, and Wolfe was accidentally killed by Agent Tamara Fraser prior to becoming the Chief of A.C.M.E. years later. After burning Wolfe's house to conceal any evidence, Shadowsan saved baby Carmen and her Matryoshka dolls; the Faculty then voted to keep her lineage secret and induct Shadowsan as Wolfe's replacement.

After Player tracks the Chief, Carmen leaves her a V.I.L.E. data-drive, which allows Player to hack A.C.M.E. and corroborate Shadow-san's account. From that file, Carmen also learns her mother, "Vera Cruz" faked her death and is somewhere in the world. Enraged by the hack, Chief reinstates Devineaux to hunt down Carmen, which he gleefully accepts.
