The Tigress
Written by: Mark L. Hoffmeier

The great Carmen Sandiego runs into some tough competition in this episode. Someone is beating her to the crime. A new super-thief calling herself "the Tigress" seems to always be half a step ahead of Carmen. Soon Carmen abandons her caper and seeks out the Tigress for a final face-off. Who is the mysterious Tigress? Why it's Acme detective Ivy. Zack and Ivy corner Carmen with an almost perfect plan.

This episode is one of my favorites. It has awesome Carmen escapes. Seeing Carmen shocked was great. Zack and Ivy on the offense is a welcome change of pace.

I am still working on this...

Musée de l'Armée

Musée des Egouts de Paris

Is Carmen still monitoring CrimeNet?

The Bayeux Tapestry

Henchman Ken Do

"You? You're the Tigress!?"
tigress_79.jpg tigress_75.jpg Who's the Tigress? The Tigress is Ivy. The carbon dioxide powered booster boots were made by Zack.

"Luckily, we broke all your clues in record time..."
tigress_78.jpg Has Carmen lost her edge? I guess after chasing Carmen for a couple of years they were bound to get lucky...

Who else knew about the plan?
The Chief was in the dark, why? He is head of Acme, how can they do something like this without him? Did the Player know about it?

Zack and Ivy set Carmen up
