In E!’s preview of the dramatic episode, which aired after Sunday’s KUWTK premiere, Kim tearfully recounts the frightening October ordeal -- in which she was robbed at gunpoint in her Paris hotel room -- to her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian.
"They ask for money. I said ‘I don't have any money,’" Kim tells the cameras. "They dragged me out to the hallway, on top of the stairs. That's when I saw the gun like, clear as day. I was kind of looking at the gun, looking down back at the stairs...”
“I had a split second in my mind to make this quick decision,” she recalls to Kourtney and Khloe. “Am I gonna run down the stairs… Either they're gonna shoot me in the back, or if I make it and they don't, if the elevator does not open in time, or the stairs are locked, then like, I'm f*cked. There’s no way out."
Authorities confirmed in January that 10 suspects are facing criminal charges in the case, including armed robbery, kidnapping, weapon possession, use of false identity and criminal association in connection to the armed robbery.
A source close to Kim told ET last month that the mother of two had met with attorneys and a French judge in New York City to answer questions about the incident, in hopes of identifying the suspects as robbers.
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last month, Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, revealed that while continuing to film Keeping Up With the Kardashians has been therapeutic for her daughter, recalling the robbery was especially traumatic.
"Nobody can even get through the first five minutes without being hysterical," Jenner said of the episode. "I get choked up just thinking about it, talking about it. It's remarkable to listen to [Kim] tell the story, and she does that because she just thinks that it might also bring some awareness because it changed the way we live our lives."
