In "Supernatural," there have been ghosts that possess objects or look like they did in real life. The easiest way to destroy a ghost is to salt and burn all of the remains. It is something that has been done many times throughout the show. It is time for a little twist on the ghost story. It is time to bring in the mummy.
The plot: There is a mummy wreaking havoc. Dean cracks a lot of Brendan Fraser jokes while trying to figure out how a mummy is real and the ways to kill it. Sam, with his research skills, finds out that the mummy is really the ghost of a high-ranking Egyptian of some sort that is getting revenge. More Brendan Fraser jokes while Dean and Sam head off to burn the "mummy's" remains.
The problem: When a mummy is created, certain body parts are removed and placed in jars. The Winchester boys would have to find the jars in order to burn the remains and get rid of the big, bad mummy. But, this mummy has help. Its body parts are protected by Egyptian gods, and those Egyptian gods are protected by goddesses. Sam and Dean will have to fight through them all to get their hands on the body parts. Why would the Egyptian gods fight so hard to keep the mummy ghost on the loose? It could become a major plot point, but that's best left to the actual "Supernatural" writers.
The four sons of Horus: Horus was a big deal in ancient Egypt. He had plenty of wives and children, but the four sons of Isis where the important body part protectors. The sons are associated with the lotus flower. Not only do they protect body parts, but they are also protectors of the four cardinal points of north, south, east and west. The sons have their own protectors, too. They are goddesses. The four sons are Duamutef, Hapy,Imsety and Qebehsenuef.
Duamutef: This son of Horus looks like a jackal. He is the protector of the east. He protects the stomach and is protected by the goddess Neith. Neith carries a bow and arrow, and was once called the goddess of war. It is believed that she was both male and female. That makes a great joke for Dean.
Hapy: Just this guy's name alone will be fun for Dean and Sam. Add in the fact that he has the head of a baboon and Dean will be cracking jokes the entire hour. He is the protector of the north and the lungs. The goddess Nephthys protects him. She is represented by the symbols of the crow, bones and skulls.
Imsety: Imsety looks like a human, which won't be as much fun for the boys. He protects the south and the liver. He is protected by the great goddess Isis herself. The scorpion represents Isis. She wears a hat with a vulture and a pair of horns.
Qebehsenuef: The last son of Horus, and the last fight for the Winchesters, is Qebehsenuef. He looks like a falcon and protects the west. The body part he protects is the intestines. The goddess Selket protects him. Her symbol is also the scorpion and a scorpion rests on her head.
When all the body parts are found, bye-bye mummy. The Winchester boys save the day again. Then they will drink a beer and have an emotional discussion by the Impala.
