The investigation into the shocking death of a museum curator, crushed by a falling gargoyle, takes a bizarre turn when Castle and Beckett learn that he isn't the first member of a recent archeological expedition to die. It turns out there was a legend inscribed over the burial chamber the team unearthed warning that "all who gaze upon the face of the mummy are doomed." Was the curator just the latest victim of "The Mummy's Curse"? And if so, what does that mean for Castle, who snuck a peek at the mummy when no one was looking? Written by

When Castle peeks in the stone coffin at the remains of the Mayan king Kan Xul, Dr. Rachel Walters interrupts him, yelling that the mummy "is over 2000 years old". However, Kan Xul I. (or, as he is more commonly called, K'an Joy Chitam I., i. e. the "earliest" possible Kan Xul) lived from 490 to 565 A.D, so it is considerably younger than that. See more
