This is definitely my least favourite episode of the entire series, and it only just avoids being completely awful in my opinion. Alex has started to become an overconfident jerk - I get what they're trying to do with his personal journey, but I think he is too often presented as excessively thoughtless and unpleasant.
(The worst of this is yet to come, of course.) The Agalophones are obviously supposed to be funny but they really aren't; I don't like anything about them on any level. Evy and Imhotep's uneasy truce is a wasted opportunity to do something interesting and meaningful, and it doesn't come anywhere close to achieving the thematic ideas that it's obviously trying to evoke. The only thing I can say in this episode's favour is that Alex demonstrates great skill with some extremely cool moves when fighting the Agalophones and the three-headed dragon, showing the more positive side of his personal and physical journey, but that's small comfort overall.
