Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Episode 113 is the forty-eighth episode of the second season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?


Medeva steals Leonardo da Vinci's notebooks from Italy in the 1490s.

At the time of the crime, Kevin and the time pilots meet the woman who begins educating escaped slaves and kept journals of that time (to be discovered years later) and she directs them to Medeva in 1862.

Following a Global Pursuit through the 1860s, the time pilots listen in on Medeva telling Carmen about Mary Kingsley, who lived during Queen Victoria's reign. These clues lead the time pilots to the 1890s, where Medeva sabotages the Chronoskimmer.

In a parallel universe, the Commissar and evil Kevin track 'good' Carmen to 1992, when Real World, a reality TV show of video journals, debuts. In our universe, Medeva is there and the time pilots recover da Vinci's notebooks.

Mahati captures Medeva, but Carmen escapes.
