And if so, will he live to tell his tale?

Differences from the book

  • In the episode, Sari sees a mummy hand in Gabe's pocket and questions him about it. He explains that he bought it at the airport, and it can supposedly summon spirits. In the book, Sari already knows about the mummy hand because Gabe used it in The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb. In that book, Gabe says that he bought the item at a garage sale.
