Stroskin returned to find that his prized historic chateau was now, uh, history. To make matters worse, absolutely every single villager in his home away from home was now angry as hell. Some locals believed that the whole thing was a scam and Stroskin had always intended to demolish the chateau -- including the mayor, who buried the site in investigations.
Three years and $1 million more than his budget later, Stroskin is still committed to painstakingly reconstructing the chateau. To be fair, it's hard to carry out dastardly deeds with the fuzz breathing down your neck. They kept such a close eye on Stroskin that in 2017, he got a hefty fine and a three-month suspended jail sentence for using the wrong sort of insecticide. If the villagers had found a shred of evidence that he deliberately destroyed the chateau, they'd have probably dusted off their guillotines.
