What’s the missing Arch scene?
The main trio — Walker Scobell as Percy, Leah Sava Jeffries as Annabeth and Aryan Simhadri as satyr Grover — stop at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, where they visit the underground museum and Percy ends up fighting the mother of monsters Echidna and her Chimera.
Percy jumps in the dirty Mississippi River after the Chimera poisons him, where he finds out he has powers like breathing underwater and is contacted by a Nereid, a messenger from Poseidon, who tells him to go to the Santa Monica Pier.
Leah Sava Jeffries and Aryan Simhadr spotted filming at the Westminster Pier Park.
