Though Batman escapes his watery trap, Robin is left in the hands of King Tut. The deluded villain still believes that Lisa Carson is really Queen Cleopatra, and calls Lisa's father to demand a ransom of $8,300,487.12, the mortgage on the Pyramids. Using the Jolly Jackson radio show to communicate, Tut negotiates the terms of payment with Batman. However, the villain most likely intends to keep both the money and Lisa, and has further plans to fry the Caped Crusaders in his royal boiling oil. Written by Twenty Penguins

"King Tut's Coup"/"Batman's Waterloo," Victor Buono's third outing as King Tut, starts out strangely, but it quickly turns into one of the very best of his episodes, equaling his Season One debut.

The episode has the bad king kidnapping Lisa Carson (Lee Meriwether), with the intention of marrying her as Cleopatra. On one level, it's another Batman adventure, but the viewer is treated to what is basically an exploration of the mental illness that this villain suffers from. We get to see the resentment that Neila (Grace Lee Whitney) has because of Tut's pursuit, and this is a welcome change from the usual plot lines of Season Two.

The overall story moves along well, and Victor Buono's acting is amazing! The other cast members, notably Ms. Merriwether, Ms. Whitney, Lloyd Haynes (Room 222) and Tim O'Kelly (Targets), do a great job.

And we get a special treat at the very end, when we get to see Adam West kissing Lee Meriwether, perhaps as a makeup for the role she played in the 1966 Batman movie. And, in a rare moment, we get to see him address the audience directly, stating knowingly, "Man cannot live by crime fighting alone."

Definitely one of the very best episodes of Season 2, despite the strange start.
