British Museum, the cultists perform a ceremony with the assistance of the Book of the Dead and succeed in reviving Imhotep once more. Just then Rick O’Connell and Ardeth Bay crash the party, rescuing Evy. Soon after this, while resting from an attack by Imhotep’s mummy soldiers, the O’Connell’s helplessly watch as the cultists abduct Alex, for they now know that he is wearing the Bracelet. The Bracelet will never come off until Alex enters the Gold Pyramid within six days, or his life will be sucked out of him by the desert itself. Rick and Evelyn team up with downtrodden pilot Izzy Buttons and his homemade dirigible to go off and try to rescue their son, with Ardeth Bay and Jonathan assisting them. Imhotep, meanwhile, regenerates back to full healthy humanity. Evelyn finally discovers in a hazy recollection that her strange dreams are in fact recollections of her past life: she is the reincarnation of Princess Nefertiri, daughter of King Seti. Nefertiri had witnessed her father’s murder by Ank-su-namun and Imhotep. Ardeth Bay explains that this, combined with the recent revelation that Rick was chosen at birth to be a Medjai, proves his theory of destiny. Eventually the O’Connell’s catch up with Imhotep’s party, having been guided by secret clues that Alex had cleverly left behind: directions to where he and his captors were heading next. In a canyon above the Nile River, the dirigible is forced to crash-land from a magical tidal wave summoned by Imhotep, and the rescue group finds themselves having finally arrived at the Oasis of Ahm Shere. They then head into the jungle. Imhotep’s loyal servants are ambushed in the jungle by a tribe of murderous Pygmy Mummies. During the ensuing chaos, confusion and bloodshed, Rick rescues his son and gets him inside the Gold Pyramid, saving the boy from his time limit of six days. However, Evelyn O’Connell is then stabbed in the gut by Ank-su-namun, and she passes away. Vengeful, Rick heads into the Pyramid to confront Imhotep, who is in the process of calling out the Scorpion King to battle him. Before Imhotep enters the battle chamber, the god Anubis removes his immortal powers in order to give the Scorpion King a fighting chance. Rick O’Connell attacks him just before the moment that the monstrous Scorpion King awakens and reveals himself, ready for a challenge. Imhotep tricks the Scorpion King into chasing Rick while the mummy runs off to find the Spear of Osiris, the only weapon that can kill the Scorpion King, which happens to be in Jonathan’s possession. During this, Alex sneaks away with the Book of the Dead and reads the proper spell that heals and resurrects his mother, Evelyn. Inside the Gold Pyramid, Rick uses the Spear of Osiris to impale the Scorpion King, and commands that he and the Army of Anubis, “go to hell!” The Army then vanishes into dust, while the Scorpion King reverts into a cloud of ash, knocking both Rick and Imhotep into a bottomless pit leading straight to the Underworld. They barely manage to grasp onto the ledge. As the Oasis begins to disappear in a massive enchantment that causes it to be swallowed up by the desert, inside the Pyramid Rick pleads for the revived Evelyn to run and leave him, to save herself. Imhotep, however, opts for the opposite, begging Ank-su-namun to come to his aid. She finally breaks, running off in fear. The O’Connell family Rick, Evelyn, Jonathan and Alex head outside to find the Oasis sucking itself up, and they have no choice but to climb upwards. They become trapped at the top of the Pyramid, and Jonathan snatches away a large diamond sitting on an altar on the pyramid’s peak. Just when all hope seems lost, Izzy appears in his dirigible, having miraculously repaired it in time for them to escape, and the O’Connell’s climb aboard and fly off just before the Oasis of Ahm Shere disappears forever. The victorious heroes then head back home.
