Perhaps Marvel Studios’ Most Anticipated Titles Moon Knight have premiered and the first episode “The Goldfish Problem” was released on March 30, 2022. In Moon Knight Episode 3 you get more information from various sources that embody both the character drama of the series and the wider world-building, while at the same time giving you a good first look at the real Moon Knight. Below that, a fairly simple story seems to emerge, but it’s confusing with multiple personalities, Egyptian mythology, and the usual MCU commitments. On the final excursion that took both Stephen and Mark to Egypt, Moon Knight Episode 3 will discover that the larger paintings are beginning to take on even more distinct shapes.
What happened in the last episode?
After the museum was attacked at the end of the premiere, Stephen began to worry that he was really mad. He is fired from a job in a gift shop, visits a storage box with his key and discovers a duffel bag with a gun, money in various currencies, a passport with Mark Specter’s name and a golden scarab. Stephen also met Mark’s wife, Layla. She seemed to Layla to know something about his activities, but she knew nothing of his double life. Harrow’s goon was able to track down Stephen. Harrow explained that he was the first avatar of Khonshu and wanted to revive another Egyptian goddess, Ammit, so that bad things wouldn’t happen. This includes eliminating people who may be doing something wrong at some point in the future, meaning criticizing the innocent.
Prediction for the next episode
It’s nice to see Stephen play a chatty supporting role with a gong of the reflexes, while Mark controls his body. Moon Knight Episode 3 should be a great reversal of the dynamics of the first two episodes. If the golden Scarab points to Ammit’s tomb and Harrow has it, how does Stephen/Mark plan to find it? Just follow Harrow? It seems to add a lot of deliberate ambiguity to Khonshu. The original sources are unknown, so was this dynamic stolen from the comics?? Historically, is Khonshu some sort of villain who manipulates Stephen/Mark like Layla? Speaking of Layla, is Marvel building some kind of love triangle? Stephen soon began to show her affection for her, probably because Mark loves her enough to bid on Khonshu just to keep him away from her. There is some confusion about the near future.
