About Dr. Will
In 1957, Sam leaps into the body of Dr. Dale Conway, an American archaeologist on a dig in Egypt just as he and his partners on the expedition in a mastaba in North Saqqara, Ginny, who's a Professor of Egyptology at Brown University and colleague Dr. Mustafa El-Razul (John Kapelos) discover the tomb of the vizier Ptah-Hotep. Al tells him however that the discovery has to this day never been reported, and that both Conway and Will disappeared without a trace, presumed to have been victims of the rumored "Ptah Curse". Like all tombs, there is a curse supposedly placed on anyone who enters and Al would happily get out of there.
As several of the expedition's crew are killed in bizarre accidents, Sam and Ginny try to race to save as much of the tomb as they can before a huge sandstorm engulfs them. Al has his suspicions about Ginny's guilt (as he does with everyone) in the deaths, as it was possible that she's covering up a plot to steal a charmed jewel in the Ptah mask, and take the credit for discovery of the tomb for herself, which proves to be a falsehood as Sam and she are still trying to find out what they are looking for however, as they become trapped in one of the tomb's inner chambers.
With two days worth of air but only about 12 hours to escape the coming sandstorm, it's revealed that their colleague Mustafa had other plans, to kill the two of them and steal both credit for discovering the tomb and an ancient jewel which was on the tomb mask, only to die at the hands of the "Ptah Curse", as Sam, with Ziggy and Al's help, is able to make sure that Dale and Ginny both escape from the tomb and the area before the sandstorm hits.
