Default Ptah-Ho-Tep and Devil Al

Kristen and I have discussed this a lot but I didn't think to share it here until now. In the episode Curse of Ptah-Ho-Tep We thought that Al desplayed a lot of Devil Al and perhaps the episode was meant to be a return of the Devil thing.

1.) a series of deaths, and no one seemed to be responsibe not even the guy that turned out to be the bad guy. cuz he was most interested in the Ptah-Ho-Tep treasure rather than killing people.

2.) Al accused the main female of the episode, and seemed satisfied with it. Although I think he may have turned on the bad guy for a few seconds at least.

3.) and this one is just because we found it amusing in b-man since its not a mornal Al term, but he says Hinky in this episode too hehe.

There are also plenty of obvious signs that it was in fact the real Al of course like for one example his fear of being in the tumb, but from the little details above Kristen and I noticed that it seemed to appear as a potentially abandoned return of Devil Al plot. Just a thought, and It is a freaky coincedence kind of if you consiter. *shrug*

Default Comparison with King Tut

It more ways, it was a direct comparison with the opening of King Tut's tomb. In that "curse" (based mostly on the death of the financier), several people supposedly connected with the tomb opening died mysterious deaths. At least that is what was reported by the press which was wanting to sell newspapers so they "fudged" a little.

That's why Sam was constantly saying "It's not the curse." The ending, of course, was a little hokey but it was a good "ghost tale."

Al came through the Imaging Chamber door several times, something that Devil Al never did.

Yeah, I don't really see any similarities between the two episodes either, sorry.

Ok well whatever then, I was not trying to make a comparison though at least not in the sense you guys seem to see it as. I was simply saying that Al had some interesting behaviors in the ep that were not exactly Al but of course it was the real Al. Speaking of which Ziggysego perhaps you should read the bottem of the post again.

I am not going to push it any farther though as there is no point when no one else sees what I see at least a little. Oh well at least I gave it a try, thanks for reading at least. Not every idea or view is accurate and/or popular.

SBF, no need to be worried. That's what the board is for, bouncing our ideas and theories off of each other. I didn't necessarily agree with this one, but never-the-less, enjoyed reading it.

Yeah its ok, I still think it seems like an abandoned Devil Al plot somehow even if no one else sees it.

I think it would of been so cool to have seen an other Devil-Al episode I thought that episode was cool!

There's been speculation, of course, that "Devil Al" is the force behind Lothos and the Evil Leapers.

Not at all offended - just a bit of good natured leg-pulling.
