Synopsis for "I Married a Mummy"

Following the murder of Dr. Nigel Thomsen, Catwoman travels to Egypt in the hope of finding the Pendant of Bastet. She breaks into the pyramid and rips the pendant off a mummy.

This resurrects the mummy, who believes she is "Lady Bastet" and begs her to release him from his immortality. He then realizes she is a thief, and attacks her for impersonating the goddess. She escapes with the pendant, but five of the six pyramid guards are killed.

Two Interpol agents search the hotels for Catwoman, believing she killed the five guards due to the testimony of the survivor. They confiscate the pendant from a hotel employee who stole it from her room.

She is warned by Yahiya that the mummy is also searching for her because she has his pendant. The mummy catches up to her, but kills one of the Interpol agents because Catwoman is under his protection. She is his bride.

Yahiya confronts the mummy, and Catwoman comes to his rescue. She fights the mummy, who continues to insist they will be married. Yahiya sets the mummy on fire, and he and Catwoman flee. Yahiya tells Catwoman the only way to destroy the mummy is to unite the pendant of Bastet with the Ring of Ptah, splash them both with mortal blood, and destroy them.

The mummy finds them, and after a fight, the mummy gives her the Ring of Ptah as an engagement ring. She asks for time to prepare for the wedding and goes to steal the pendant from the Interpol office. The surviving agent and his back-up try to arrest her, but when they pull guns on her, the mummy appears.

He attacks them in her defense. She convinces him to let them witness their wedding, then let her kill them. She unites the ring and the pendant as they recite their vows, tears open her bandage to spray them with mortal blood, then shoots them with a gun. The mummy is destroyed.

On her plane ride back, she hears a passenger say that Tiffany is making a reproduction of the pendant and plans to display it in Gotham Museum. She smiles.
