Episode 107 is the forty-second episode of the second season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?

Summary[]

Medeva steals the Mayan corn from AD 300.

At one point, Medeva breaks into the Chronoskimmer and foolishly gives clues directing Kevin and the time pilots to Virginia in the 1600's, when John Smith and the Jamestown colony are saved from starvation by corn from Powhatan and his tribe.

In a parallel universe, Comisar and the evil Kevin track the 'good' Carmen to when the latest in microwave popcorn (not frozen food) was first set up in stores. In our universe, the time pilots find Medeva in 1983 and recover the Mayan corn.

Antonio captures Medeva, but Carmen escapes after Antonio missed the last question at the last portal and time ran out before the device was finished operating.
