8. Samantha Tells Jasper Princess Eleanor Isn't in Love With Him Anymore:

Samantha and Jasper meet in the tunnels again and Jasper goes off on her. Jasper tells her how much he's been covering for her and asks her why she's still here.

"Whatever I had with her it was all part of the con," Jasper says.

"Bulls--t," Samantha says. "And you know how I know? Because you had her in your pocket and you didn't follow through. But don't worry she's not in love with you anymore."

Samantha then says that they're "moving up the con" and wants to steal a very valuable diamond at the Prince and Princess' birthday! But is Jasper really still in on the con? We'll have to keep watching to find out!
