  • Sydney and Nigel head to Alaska to find an ancient Chinese sarcophagus.

    The episode starts well - with an exciting scene showing a Chinese Emperor fighting against thieves - and losing his sarcophagus. A girl and her grandfather show Sydney a fragment - which may be connected to the lost sarcophagus. Nigel and Sydney then head off to Alaska where they find other relic hunters (men with a past with Sydney) also interested in the relic for different reasons. Sydney and Nigel continue on to find the bush guy who found the fragment - but they instead find the 2 relic hunters (Dallas and Kurt) tied up and they also fall victim to a trap. The bush guy doesn't help them - he wants the relic for himself. The 4 relic hunters sporadically help each other but eventually Sydney and Nigel run off on the trail - and find another local dead. They get to a cave and find the sarcophagus - but the bush guy interrupts them - and dies from an arrow. Dallas and Kurt also get there and stop Sydney and Nigel - but then another local (Katie) turns up wanting the relic. She forces Sydney to open up the sarcophagus and runs off with a necklace. Sydney runs after her and after a fight, gets the necklace back. Holding a gun, she also stops Dallas and Kurt from doing anything else...

    This episode is very exciting with a multitude of people after the relic for different reasons. The scenery also adds to the story. The scenes with Nigel thinking that Sydney is after him are amusing - as are the problems caused by Dallas and Kurt as they remind Sydney of past times. Katie (played by Catherine Hernandez) has a good early scene with Nigel and her fight scene with Sydney is well done. Thomas Kretschmann - who plays Kurt - also appeared in an earlier episode - but he is more effective in this story.
