Paris, Bently's lab, present day
Bently had been keeping himself busy. Dividing his time between his lab work and keeping up his skills in heists with Sly and Murray had mainly served as a distraction from other things that had been on his mind. The gang had also taken to aiding Carmelita on her missions on occasion, though always in secret and never leaving without some kind of souvenir thanks to Sly.
