With Alex/Osiris dead, Gorgos allows Matt to take form in cyberspace so he can then be accused and executed for his son's/Egypt's pharaoh's murder. Having lost her brother, Cleo enters to save her father. Together they follow the myth that might prove to be Alex' salvation. All the while, Gorgos waits for them to get to the heart of the myth where the Gorgos Stone should be. Meanwhile, Max Asher, without saying too much, tries to allay Philthy's belief that he's lost a friend and shares his secret. Written by
