Superstitions and episode about curses
13 April 2015 | by ctyankee1See all my reviews

This episode is all about curses, mummies and disturbing their bodies.

A presentation of a Egyptian Princess is going on display and for whatever reason the presenters want to open up the mummy case and undo the wrappings of the mummy.

As it is being opened a man gets bit by a cobra that is inside the casket and dies. Later a lady unwraps the gauze like wrapping around the mummies face and dies. A man that looks very sickly and thin like he got aides tells everyone its the curse and to stop the exhibition.

Murdoch has the mummy taken back to the police station and it's kind of odd with all the mystery around the mummy he does not undo the mummy's wrapping.

This episode is so full of stupid ideas of curses and a mystery Egyptian princess. Crabtree writes a mystery book about mummies and because of the deaths his book and the exhibition is getting a lot of attention.

Brackenreid his boss is sick of his superstitions and beliefs in curses, werewolves , zombies and more. He tell Crabtree to get rid of his fans that are coming to the police station to get their book signed by him.

The deaths are solved and there is a logical explanation for the things that caused the peoples deaths.
