Violet, Klaus and Sunny are now with Dr. Montgomery Montgomery. He's an expert in reptiles and very strange. Even though the Baudelaires' are supposed to be with their closest living relative, they suspect Montgomery is not related to them at all. As they are getting to know him and getting to be themselves and be in a safe and loving place, a new assistant for Montgomery shows up, which is actually Count Olaf. Violet and Klaus try to tell Montgomery who the new assistant is, but he won't let them finish their sentences. Montgomery doesn't trust his new assistant and takes him with them to the movies. While there, Montgomery takes out a spy glass during the movie decodes a message saying to take the children to Peru. He disappears near the end of the movie but Violet and Klaus find him and they head home to pack for Peru. Count Olaf wasn't invited back to the house, but he won't stop until he gets the fortune.
