“I’m gonna go splash some water on my face and… throw up a little.” -Castle
In this episode, a man has found the Mayan equivalent of king Tut. Maya-Tut comes with a curse, just like the Egyptian king. The curse is applied to anyone who looks at the mummy, which Castle does before hearing about it.
Here’s the breakdown.
Ryan and Esposito have a hay day knowing that Castle is cursed, even though he doesn’t believe in curses. Castle really starts getting freaked out when weird things start happening to him. After Kate reveals that she’s behind them, he continues having weird thing happen to him.
Basically, after finding the mummy, everyone on the team that found him begins dying mysteriously. First a girl in the jungle, then someone else in a way I cannot remember, then the assistant curator by falling gargoyle (this is the first victim shown). When they discover that the mummy is less than 500 years old, instead of the millennia he was supposed to be, they realize something entirely different than what they thought is going on.
It’s a frakking hilarious episode, especially the part in the elevator. And the Indiana Castle scene at the beginning.
