Rajan believes displaying the wings will bring him prestige, and maybe they will. But they're also bringing me.
― Sly, determined to steal back the Clockwerk wings[src]

"A Starry Eyed Encounter" is the second episode of Sly 2: Band of Thieves. It was set at a palace in India, and the main antagonist was Rajan.


The SetupEdit

The Cooper Gang located another Clockwerk part, which surfaced in India. There, they arrived at the palace of powerful spice lord and prominent Klaww Gang member Rajan, who was holding a lavish ball to show off his latest acquisition: the Clockwerk wings. Rajan believed that the wings would bring him prestige, but little did he know that the Cooper Gang was also on his tail.

The GetawayEdit

After the Cooper Gang made off with the Clockwerk wings, Carmelita blew her cover and began making arrests left and right. With Rajan's reputation in shambles, he fled from his palace and went deep into the jungle.

The gang took a break in Bollywood, where they snuck Murray onto the set of a full blown Indian musical. While Sly was glad that he and friends were able to unwind, he knew that Rajan was still out there and that things were going to get tough somehow.

  • Due to Dimitri Lousteau's arrest, he is the only Klaww Gang member not to appear at Rajan's party.
  • This is the only episode in the game in which a Clockwerk part is not used for evil.
  • It is possible to get all three members of the gang to free roam inside the safe house through a glitch. See Sly 2: Band of Thieves/Cheats and glitches.
  • In the PS3 remaster, graphical glitches will sometimes occur around the safe house and also around the trees next to the palace.
