Events of Criminal Case

Corpse Chic

After arresting Elise Marx's killer, Enzo enlisted the player's help in persuading Émile to sign himself up for online dating. Despite initial resistance, Émile allowed Enzo to follow through with his plan. They asked photographer Lola du Maurier to take photos of Enzo for his dating profile. After they found and repaired Lola's camera flash, Enzo told Émile that a bottle of vintage Château Megot in his profile picture would make him look more refined. After finding a bottle at Café Le Froufrou, Émile, Enzo and the player met Lola at Pont Alexandre III for the photoshoot. After the shoot, Lola commended Émile for looking adorable and told him that the girls on the dating app would be begging for his number in no time.

Beastly Behavior

After arresting Jackson Peacock's killer, Émile reported to Enzo and the player that he would have a date with someone under the online username "LawGirl21", whom he had been chatting to online. He then requested them to help him impress her with a gift. After receiving a Montmartre-themed jigsaw puzzle from caricaturist Laila Rangwalla, Enzo and the player accompanied a nervous Émile to meet his date at Oh La Vache café, only to find him fainted. After Enzo woke him up, he gave him a pep talk and dosed him up on Spanax to make him ready for the date. Enzo and the player then finally went with Émile to the café, eventually finding out that LawGirl21 was, in fact, Judge Lebrun, Hugo's ex-wife. With the revelation, the two then ended their relationships out of respect for Hugo.
