Within the post-credits scene, Sally Jackson’s scumbag ex-husband Gabe (Timm Sharp) tries to get inside her condo whereas on the telephone together with his lawyer. She correctly modified the locks, although, so he can’t get in. However he spots a bundle on the Jacksons’ doorstep and decides to open it. This occurs to be a return-to-sender bundle, addressed to Percy — aka the one containing Medusa’s severed head.
He opens it, seems to be instantly inside, and instantly will get turned to stone. Get wrecked, Gabe.
Gabe doesn’t seem in any of the books after the primary one, and contemplating the one motive Sally married him is as a result of his gross mortal-stink masked Percy’s scent from monsters, it’s nobody’s loss. In reality, we’re all fairly glad to see him out of the way in which.
That is truly just like the notorious film’s post-credits scene, the place Gabe returns to the condo to pack up his stuff. He goes to the kitchen to get a beer, solely to search out the fridge locked and a be aware from Percy saying that nobody ought to open the fridge. Unperturbed, Gabe smashes open the lock — after which is frozen by Medusa’s head.
But, someway, neither of those variations is wherever close to as deliciously brutal as his destiny within the guide sequence. Within the books, it’s truly Sally who makes use of the pinnacle to freeze Gabe after which sells his petrified corpse as a sculpture. It’s a giant hit within the artwork world, and he or she makes use of the proceeds to place down a deposit for a brand new condo and fund a semester of tuition at NYU, the place she goes on to check writing. She experiences Gabe as lacking, however he by no means turns up! (“Goodbye Earl” by The Chicks performs within the background.)
Phrase’s out on if Sally will discover the frozen Gabe and revenue off him within the present, however she positively deserves to make a splash within the artwork world and finance her ardour for writing.
