If I don't do anything, Carmelita's doomed. Besides, stealing just wouldn't be any fun without her.
― Sly Cooper, willing to rescue Carmelita[src]
Sly ventured into the control room, which was heavily secured with lasers and booby-trapped tiles. Bentley suggested that Sly vacates the area, but Sly then spotted Carmelita trapped in the room ahead. Sly insisted on freeing her, but Bentley warned Sly that it was probably a trap set up by Clockwerk, and he also reminded him that all Carmelita has been doing was trying to bust Sly. Despite Bentley's reasoning, Sly was still determined to save her.
Once he snuck his way into the chamber, the door behind him closed, and to no avail, he tried to bust the thick glass with his cane. Seeing Sly, Carmelita soon suspected he was behind her capture. As Sly tried to explain how he was trying to rescue her, the chamber then filled with deadly gas, making Sly fall unconscious. Clockwerk then appeared on the chamber's screens, laughing and mocking Sly for his sentimental feelings for Carmelita and stating that empathy has always been the downfall of the Cooper Clan. Bentley had to act quickly by doing some fast and furious hacking in order to prevent the gas from killing Sly and Carmelita.
