As Rick attempts to hold back Imhotep's mummified priests and Evy tries elude Anck-su-Namun, Jonathan manages to read the inscription on the cover of the Book of Amun-Ra, and the mummies stop dead in their tracks. Jonathan orders them to kill Anck-su-Namun, sending Imhotep into a rage. To control Imhotep, however, he needs the key to open the book (which is inside Imhotep's robe), so Rick charges Imhotep with his sword, cutting off his arm. Jonathan manages to retrieve the key, which Evy placed in the locks, open the book, and reads the spell that renders Imhotep mortal. Rick then runs his sword through Imhotep's abdomen and sinks him in the River of Death. Meanwhile, in an attempt to loot a heavy back of gold treasure, Beni (Kevin J. O'Connor) rests the sack on a lever that begins to close all of the trap doors in the pyramid. The four of them Evy, Rick, Jonathan, and Beni hurry to escape, but Beni gets trapped inside with a swarm of flesh-eating scarabs. Safely outside the city, Evy, Rick, and Jonathan watch as Hamunaptra crumbles into the sand. After Ardeth Bay (Oded Fehr) thanks them for stopping Imhotep, Jonathan bemoans the fact that didn't get away with any treasure. 'I wouldn't say that,' Rick says and kisses Evy. In the final scene, the three of them ride into the sunset on their camels, and several pieces of gold can be seen poking out of Rick's saddlebag.
