Episode 105 is the fortieth episode of the second season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?

Summary[]

Medeva steals the Bayeux Tapestry from England, circa 1092.

At the time of the crime, Kevin and the time pilots meet an Inca ruler Huayna Capac (who dressed in a time pilot jacket) who gives clues directing them to the 1490s, where they play Global Pursuit.

After Global Pursuit through the 1400s, Medeva intrudes the Chronoskimmer and gives the time pilots clues directing them to 1870, when the grandson of Betsy Ross begins telling her legend. But upon their arrival, Medeva puts a spell on their ship and they need a Data Boost.

After getting clues from Kevin's future self (by 3 days), he and the pilots go to Washington D.C. in 1996, when the AIDS Memorial Quilt was on display, and retrieve the Bayeux Tapestry from Medeva.

Rebecca captures Medeva and Carmen Sandiego with 5 seconds to spare.
