Alya shows Marinette a video she recorded of Ladybug talking to her, but Marinette accidentally deletes it. Before Alya finds out, Marinette steals her phone and frantically tries to re-create the footage. Meanwhile, Mylène's father, Fred Haprèle, has just picked up his fixed hat from Marinette, and is getting his first premier gesture performance called The Mime's Extraordinary Adventures at the Eiffel Tower. However, his partner, Chris, deliberately makes him late at catching the troupe bus, and convinces their manager Sarah to let Chris take the lead role instead. Disheartened, Fred becomes akumatized by Hawk Moth and turns into The Mime, a supervillain who can pantomime anything to make it reality, and attempts to seek revenge.
