Howard wants Christmas Eve to only include the family, but Richie discovers that Fonzie will be all alone.
Paris replaces Nicolai while Sebastian takes Paris' place while Barney sneaks into the royal vault to replace the royal jewels but is blinded by a concussion. Barney manages to make his way to the vault despite his blindness and replace the real jewels with fakes. Paris-as-Nicolai slips Francesca a gun and she fake-shoots herself at the altar. Sabattini orders her entombed where Barney is on hand (barely) to rescue her and get back to the magic act where they get out of the castle, leaving Paris-as-Nicolai in place and Barney still within the walls. Meanwhile, Jim, pretending to be a fence, alerts Sabattini to the fact the jewels are replaced with fakes, and only Stephan knows where they are.moreless
