Synopsis for "Thief of Paris"
Galiant's agency sends Catwoman to steal a fake Boccatoria oil painting from a Paris museum, as part of a complicated gambit involving "ex-Nazis and the looting of Holland in 1940 and clearing a Romanian of war crimes in exchange for hard data on Korea's nuke program". Meanwhile, Prince Willem Kapreallian, still obsessed with finding his crown and its thief, hires Henri Ducard to track down Catwoman.
Shortly after, Ducard finds Shapleigh, a member of Galiant's agency whom he has a history with, and blackmails Shapleigh into revealing Catwoman's current location. Meanwhile, Catwoman breaks into the museum as planned, but quickly shuts herself inside the Boccatoria's vault, gambling that the vault's extra-thick walls will jam any electronic signals and thus prevent Galiant's agency from activating the cyanide capsule planted in her body. The gamble pays off, and Catwoman is able to dig the capsule out of her skin with her clawed gloves.
Furious, Galiant and his associates drive down to the museum to terminate their unruly "employee" in person, but are beaten to the punch by Prince Willem's hired hands, who abduct Catwoman and drive the federal agents off with superior firepower. Some time later, Catwoman awakens in a mountaintop castleand comes face-to-face with the Prince, who informs her that intends not to kill her, but to marry her.
