"A Tangled Web" is the fifth episode of Sly 2: Band of Thieves. The main antagonist of the episode is the Contessa for the second time.


The SetupEdit

The Cooper Gang learned that the Contessa, having escaped from them at the prison, was now hiding at her castle estate.

With the Contessa now revealed to be a secret member of the Klaww Gang, INTERPOL had provided Constable Neyla with the means to hire an army of mercenaries and wage war on the corrupt Contessa.

In the midst of this war, the Cooper Gang had to save Carmelita and steal the Clockwerk eyes, which the Contessa plans to use to brainwash Carmelita into becoming the "best of friends" with her, and make Carmelita take the fall for her at INTERPOL.

Operation: High Road Sly, Bentley, Murray
Start a battle between Neyla's and Contessa's forces as a distraction in order to free Carmelita and get the Clockwerk Eyes.

The GetawayEdit

Sly rescued Carmelita, defeated the Contessa, and retrieved the Clockwerk Eyes.

The Contessa was arrested for the crimes she committed while working for INTERPOL. Neyla, who was given the credit by INTERPOL, was promoted to the rank of Captain.

Carmelita, still on the outs with INTERPOL, turned to the Cooper Gang (much to the delight of Sly) for help in escaping Prague.

The gang, realizing that the Klaww Gang business was spiraling out of control and that they were at the center of it, decided to lie low for a while before making their next move.



The safe was located in the tower directly opposite to the re-education tower, where Sly obtained the Wire Tap. The combination to the safe was 9-6-9, and inside was the Rage Bomb gadget.
