The Franz Ferdinand Syndrome


In an attempt to cure Robin of his strong belief that he is the archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, Mathilde takes him to Sarajevo, where Franz Ferdinand was famously assassinated by Gavrilo Princip, to face his own fears by staging an assassination of her own. However, when the time comes things don't quite go as Mathilde had intended.
