Blood & Treasure (2019)

Season 1


Blood & Treasure (2019) Blood & Treasure (2019) [Season 1, Episode 1] The Curse of Cleopatra Part I
Shown 21 May 19

Dr. Ana Castilla ( Alicia Coppola ) discovers the tomb of Anthony and Cleopatra. It is inside the Great Pyramid of Giza, something so unlikely it is lampshaded by the characters repeatedly. Karim Farouk (Oded Fehr - The Mummy (1999) ) and his team of terrorists burst in, with SWAT-team weapons and equipment. These are some very well-equipped bad guys, financed by sale of stolen antiquities.

Castilla's financier Jay Reece (John Larroquette - ) hires Danny McNamara (Matt Barr - Sleepy Hollow (2014) ), an ex-FBI Agent who specialises in blood antiquities. Presumably, this is the equivalent to blood diamonds, a label that destroys the economies of war-torn areas.

Danny teams up with an expert thief, Lexi Vaziri ( Sofia Pernas ). She is also his ex-lover, as a series of flashbacks shows their troubled relationship. At a black market get-together they meet a Relic Hunter named Simon Hardwick (James Callis - Battlestar Galactica (2003) ). Interpol Agent Gwen Karlsson ( Katia Winter ), another one of Danny's lover interests, is also in town. Yes, it looks like all the important recurring characters are being introduced in the very first episode.

After a recap of the story so far, featuring footage that has not been shown in the previous episode, we get a flashback to 1942. Cleopatra's tomb was raided by the Afrika Korps, who somehow got a convoy of trucks hundreds of miles behind British lines. Luckily there is a secret society of Arabs, like the Brotherhood of the Cruciform Sword in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade .

The protagonists' agenda switches from rescuing the hostage to locating and assassinating the antagonist, Karim Farouk (Oded Fehr - The Mummy (1999) ).

Interpol Agent Gwen Karlsson ( Katia Winter ) gets involved in the plot again. Winter and co-star Matt Barr both appeared in Sleepy Hollow (2014) , but not in the same Seasons. Now they actually have a chance to shine, rather than being relegated to supporting roles.

It turns out that the mysterious third force who are trying to protect Cleopatra's mummy are the Cult of Sapis, led by Julian Richings ( Supernatural ).

Shown 28 May 19

While in Rome, Danny McNamara (Matt Barr - Sleepy Hollow (2014) ) hangs out in the Vatican apartment of his childhood friend Father Chuck Donnelly (Mark Gagliardi - ). Yes, much like the title character of similar show Hooten And The Lady (2016) ) he was raised in a strict Roman Catholic upbringing.

Interpol Agent Gwen Karlsson ( Katia Winter ) and her team use Shaw as bait to lure out Karim Farouk (Oded Fehr - The Mummy (1999) ).

Lexi Vaziri ( Sofia Pernas ) is normally a kick-ass action babe. Now she has a more realistic fight scene, where she goes head-to-head against a fat old man.
