They convince the father of the church that his church is one of the oldest churches in the city, and if they dig it, they might give evidence to the public and declare it as the oldest church in Paris.

Leila fits the hidden camera into the house, and in the last moments, they almost get caught, but they manage to successfully execute the plan. After the plan, in the night, Roi tells Cameron that they can’t be in any relationship, so she needs to stop staring at him.
