Blood & Treasure - The Brotherhood of Serapis

"The Brotherhood of Serapis" makes quick work of both Danny (Matt Barr) being trapped in the tomb and Lexi (Sofia Pernas) being kidnapped by a secret cult determined to keep the location of Cleopatra's tomb a mystery. As Danny is rescued by Jay Reece (John Larroquette), who has become the series De Ex Machina at this point, and his men, Lexi agrees to work with the Brotherhood who want Farouk (Oded Fehr) dead just as much as she does. A couple white lies later and Danny and Lexi are back in action breaking into the Egyptian government and tracking Farouk who has stolen the recovered antiquities in order to pay for the the search for Cleopatra. None of the recurring characters make an appearance here, although Dr. Ana Castillo (Alicia Coppola) abandons the project in a sequence that is either genuine, and just badly scripted, or means she is continuing the job for Farouk.
