This takes Marc (and us) on another chase. This time, however, Layla is with him — she caught up with him as he tried to find out who has Senfu’s sarcophagus. She knows who has it, of course, and the two take a boat to a place owned by a guy named Mogart.
Marc and Layla have a bittersweet moment on the boat before they pull up to Mogart’s, a lavish place with lots of people and a lot of guns. Mogart and Layla appear to have a rocky past, but he lets her and Marc view Senfu’s final resting place. Marc needs Steven to figure out how to get the coordinates and the two argue via reflection before Marc picks up the pieces of papyrus in Senfu’s sarcophagus.
Harrow then shows up, of course, and things get messy. The Ammit devotee blows up Senfu’s sarcophagus while Marc (and Layla) kick some ass. Marc eventually summons the suit and kicks more butt, though Steven takes over briefly to stop Marc from killing. Layla and Marc ultimately get away with Senfu’s coded map to Ammit’s tomb. While they drive out to the desert, Marc is a jerk to Layla. I get he’s trying to push her away because he doesn’t want her to get hurt but I’m sorry Marc — Layla can more than take care of herself, and you’re being more than a bit infantilizing here.
Relationship issues aside, however, the two camp out in the desert and Marc lets Steven take over so he can decipher Senfu’s papyrus code. (Side note, the fact that these thousand-year-old pieces of papyrus can be folded into an origami star is delightfully ridiculous and also reminiscent of 1999’s “The Mummy.”)
Steven gets Senfu’s constellation map together but there’s a problem — the stars in the sky have moved since he died a few thousand years ago. Khonshu can change the sky back, however, though he’ll need Marc’s help. He also knows that doing so will get him entombed in stone by the other gods.
