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 ABC Publicity

Did You Know?


The "gargoyle" is actually a grotesque, as gargoyles traditionally were waterspouts carved into the shape of a creature. See more »

Richard Castle gets picked on and the murderer gets caught.
11 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Richard Castle is a very successful writer, yet his continually being cast as a buffoon is ridiculous.

One again Kate Beckett, the infallible super detective, is unnecessarily mean and nasty to Richard Castle and once again a female guest actress puts in a better performance than her. Navi Rawat as Rachel Waters shows Stana Katic you do not have to try to be the centre of attention in every scene to be effective.

The crime seemed to be wrapped up very quickly and Kate Beckett was scripted to be a fantastic achiever in the end.

Alexis had some nice scenes interacting with Richard Castle and Martha was also reasonable to him.

Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle endeavoured to add a little colour to the episode, but it is otherwise predictable and unremarkable.
