This week’s episode of Moon Knight really flipped the script with a last-minute twist that upended most of what we’ve seen thus far. Of course, we know that Steven/Marc hasn’t been imagining his adventures thus far, but it’s still an intriguing direction to take the show in, especially with only two episodes remaining. Moon Knight season 1, episode 5 will have that twist to deal with as a matter of urgency, but there are also plenty of other elements to be concerned about in the meantime.

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 Moon Knight season 1, episode 5:

  • Comic books fans, teach me! Is this whole asylum thing cribbed from a particular storyline? If so, let me know, and also let me know where it might be going.
  • Let’s say we devote half an episode to Steven/Marc escaping the asylum, where do we go from there? Has the physical version of Marc/Steven survived the gunshots? Does Layla have the ushabti? Will she be able to escape?
  • It seems unlikely that the show would have teed up the whole Jake Lockley thing without it going anywhere, so I think we can expect to see the emergence of that personality sooner rather than later.

    I haven’t actually read the comic book, but from what I’ve read and watched online, the back end of “The Tomb” takes its cue from the Lemire and Smallwood run of the comics, where Marc imagines the Steven Grant personality to be a director of a film, which is where “Tomb Busters” comes in. I’m uncertain whether Tawaret (The hippo Goddess) is in the run, but she IS the Goddess of Fertility and Rejuvenation, so I’m thinking in Ep. 5, She’ll help Marc/Steven “escape” the mental institution, and in the process help him come to terms with his DID.
