This week’s episode of Moon Knight gave us a lot more information from a variety of sources, fleshing out both the show’s character drama and wider worldbuilding, while also giving us our first proper look at the Moon Knight in action. Beneath all this, it seems like there’s a pretty straightforward narrative emerging, but it’s muddled up in multiple personalities, Egyptian mythology, and the usual MCU obligations. With the latest outing having taken both Steven and Marc to Egypt, Moon Knight season 1, episode 3 will presumably find the bigger picture beginning to take an even clearer shape. Here’s where we’re up to:

  • Following the museum attack at the end of the premiere, Steven was beginning to worry he might be genuinely losing his mind. Sacked from his job at the gift shop, he visited the storage box he had a key for and discovered a duffel bag containing a gun, money in various currencies, a passport in the name of Marc Spector, and the golden scarab.
  • Steven also met Marc’s wife, Layla, who seemed to know about his activities to some extent but not about his dual life.
  • Harrow’s goons were able to track Steven down. Harrow explained that he was Khonshu’s original avatar and wants to resurrect Ammit, another Egyptian deity, in order to prevent bad things before they happen. This would involve getting rid of people who might do wrong at some point in their future, meaning condemning the innocent.
  • Steven/Marc and Layla were able to escape, but Harrow acquired the scarab.

Moon Knight plot and trailer

From IMDb:

A former U.S. Marine, struggling with dissociative identity disorder, is granted the powers of an Egyptian moon god. But he soon finds out that these newfound powers can be both a blessing and a curse to his troubled life.

Predictions and preview for the next episode:

With everything to play for, here are some idle thoughts and predictions:

  • With Marc now in control of the body, it’ll be fun to see Steven reduced to the chattering support role chiming in from reflections. Should be a nice inversion of the dynamic from the first two episodes.
  • If the golden scarab points towards Ammit’s tomb and Harrow has it, how is Steven/Marc planning to find it? Just follow Harrow?
  • It seems like we’re adding a lot of deliberate ambiguity to Khonshu. I’m not familiar with the source material, so is this dynamic cribbed from the comics? Is Khonshu historically a kind of villain who manipulates Steven/Marc like how he is with Layla?
  • Speaking of Layla, are we building towards a bit of a love triangle? Steven began to show some pretty immediate affection for her, and Marc obviously loves her enough to do Khonshu’s bidding just to stop him getting to her, so there’s probably a bit of confusing on the near horizon for the three of them.
