The treasure is an Ankh or a ScarabThe show has an Egyptian mythology theme going on here and the portrait from the attic had Egyptian heiroglyphs written on it. Sarah implied that the treasure will allow the one who holds it to live forever and "tip the scales of life." The Ankh is the Egyptian symbol for life and the Scarab is the Egyptian symbol for immortality.
Joy is in the BasementIt's implied that she's still in the school, and we've seen the attic already. Now where else is out of bounds that the heroes haven't searched?
The treasure is a Philosopher's StoneVictor drank some sort of potion in one episode and gave a toast "to life", but commented that "there isn't much left." Add in the fact that he would have to be really old to have his voice on a recording of the Young Sarah, sounding exactly the way he does today, and the implication is that the potion grants him extended life, much like the elixir the Philosopher's Stone produces according to legend. Furthermore, in one recipe for the supposed creation of the stone, one of the steps is symbolized by a raven (Corbierre) and by the burial of a dead body in the earth("Joy is buried"). Since Victor is running out of his own Elixir, it makes sense that he'd want to find the stone and be able to produce as much as he wants. There's only a couple of holes in this theory: How did he produce the original elixir and why can't he make more? Any thoughts?
Victor is bound to the House by some sort of magical phlebotinum.Thus explaining why, if he hates being around teenagers so much he didn't just get a normal job where you clock out and leave it behind years ago.
The photo and the toxicology report in Victor's office are fake.At least one member of Victor's organization works at the hospital where Alfie was staying, and probably more, since he was able to keep Rufus confined to that hospital for a while, meaning he could have arranged to have Alfie's toxicology report changed. And we know from the school photo incident that he knows someone who can alter photographs and as is pointed out on the main page, if he really is the child from the photo and the immortaility elixir doesn't exist, then he should be over 80 years old. Why did he do it? Simple: He knew that people had been going through his office, so he left false information for their benefit.
House of Anubis is the British Blake Holsey HighNina is Josie, Fabian is Lucas, Amber is Corrine, and Jason Winkler (in the beginning)/ Rufus (after Winkler joins the Dark Side) is Professor Zachary. And what else? OH. Victor is VICTOR Pearson. Everything science is replaced with magic.
Rufus is alive
The house has a will of it's ownThink about everything that has happened over the past two seasons: Nina arrived at the house and was almost immediately acknowledged as The Chosen One. (By the House opening it's doors to her.) The house later gives her clues to help her find the Cup of Ankh. Then, consider the people she meets while there. Fabian Rutter, the smart and helpful one, more than capable of solving the riddles Frobisher-Smythe created. Amber Millington, who, while being a Dumb Blonde, proves to be a loyal ally and even has a couple of good ideas on how to proceed with the treasure hunt. (More than once, her random comments lead to solutions.) Patricia Williamson, initially a foil to Nina and her enemy, but post-Heel-Face Turn, one of Nina's most invaluable teammates, despite her status as The Lancer. Recall that it was Patricia who got Nina to go into the attic at the beginning of Season One, leading her to the first clue and kicking off the treasure hunt. Jerome and Alfie initially start as Those Two Guys, but they later become important allies in their own right. (Admittedly Jerome moreso than Alfie — without his involvement, they might never have discovered the existence of the Mask's "third eye" in Season 2 — but Alfie still has his moments.) Finally, at the beginning of Season 2, Eddie Miller arrives at the house early on and turns out to be the one destined to protect The Chosen One. If he hadn't been there, Senkhara would have dragged Nina to the Egyptian afterlife. Summing up, The Chosen One not only arrived at Anubis House exactly when she needed to be there in order to complete the Cup, but she met the perfect set of True Companions as well. My WMG here is that it wasn't a conincidence that all of these people happened to end up at Anubis House. Somehow, the house acted on it's own, reaching out and bringing each of them there.
Patricia and Joy weren't that good of friends.
