Blood & Treasure - The Secret of Macho Grande

Danny (Matt Barr) and Lexi (Sofia Pernas) head to Germany in search of the castle where the Nazis hid Cleopatra's sarcophagus during WWII. Although they have found the latest clue before Farouk (Oded Fehr), his men are close behind. "The Secret of Macho Grande" plays up the clues and secret tombs and our intrepid explorer and his ex-girlfriend thief discover hidden code by a a secret society pointing them to yet another location on their treasure hunt. The episode is notable for Lexi coming face-to-face with the man responsible for her father's death and Danny getting trapped in the tomb as the enemy absconds with his ex. Given what we've seen so far, I'm betting neither will be much of an obstacle for too long. Flashbacks bring back James Callis as antiquities dealer Simon Hardwick, suggesting he's more involved in the web of Cleopatra, Farouk, Danny, and Lexi than his initial appearance suggested.
