Carmen Sandiego - The Luchadora Tango Caper

After months of laying low and falling off the radar of both V.I.L.E. and A.C.M.E., Carmen (Gina Rodriguez) reappears looking for clues to her mother's identity by breaking into her father's safety deposit box in Buenos Aires. Her search leads her to Veracruz, Mexico, where she encounters a female luchador with the right name (and fighting spirit) but no familial connection. After the destruction of their facility, V.I.L.E. has relocated to the highlands of Scotland. News of Carmen resurfacing pushes Coach Brunt (Mary Elizabeth McGlynn) into the field - despite the objections of the others. Carmen also tangles with some of the academy's latest graduates in Spin Kick (Dante Basco) and Fly Trap (Sarah-Nicole Robles). The luchador angle adds some goofy wrestling fun to the premiere that otherwise isn't all that notable.
