Moon Knight Episode 3: Plot

From Eternals’ exploration of its everlasting heroes’ relationship with their Celestial creators to Shang-hidden Chi’s land of folkloric magic and Loki’s continuity-worshiping time cops, it’s a turn that’s becoming increasingly common in a Marvel Cinematic Universe that’s starting to contemplate the divine.

The MCU is exploring the idea of heroes and villains as avatars for strange cosmic forces, agents in a supernatural chess match where the players are shrouded in mystery and frustratingly oblique, as it advances beyond the Avengers.

This is especially true when it comes to Moon Knight’s Egyptian gods. They’ve sworn an oath of non-interference in human matters, just as the Eternals. They, unlike the Eternals, do not even exist on Earth, instead of occupying the Othervoid, a plane of existence.

They’d be utterly absent if it weren’t for their habit of appointing avatars — human stand-ins who study the world for them — mostly to ensure that their realms remain undisturbed and the gods’ true natures remain secret.

As a result, it’s not surprising that Khonshu (voiced by F. Murray Abraham), the moon god, chose Marc Spector to do his task, although it is surprising that it’s so straightforward.

However, we learn that Khonshu is the other gods’ temperamental kid brother, and none of them believe his warnings about Arthur Harrow’s (Ethan Hawke) attempted resurrection of Ammit when Spector — who is now in control, with occasional interference from Steven — is summoned to a tribunal by the other avatars.

Even if Arthur Harrow says “nuh-uh” when asked if he did it, the tribunal’s principal reason for discarding Khonshu’s reasoning is to question the accused if he did it, and a simple “no” from Arthur Harrow is evidently enough for them.

This is where Moon Knight becomes messy. In addition to Harrow’s evidence, Khonshu’s choice of avatar is a potentially significant factor in his demise. Whenever Spector’s mental health is brought into question, Spector falls to the ground and declares that he’s not well; Khonshu’s fate is sealed if he disobeys the gods one more time: he will be imprisoned.

Moon Knight has so far refused to reveal where it stands on the issue of its protagonist’s mental well-being. In this scene, the gods tell Marc exactly what Steven Grant is afraid others would say about him: that he is shattered. His brokenness makes him untrustworthy.

It’s a gut-wrenching moment that’s only made more so by the absurdity of the circumstances. Thanks to a last-minute addition, “The Friendly Type” has yet another trick up its sleeves.

With Layla El-Faouly (May Calamawy), Marc’s ex-wife and lone remaining ally, he sets out to find a new means to stop Harrow from accomplishing his mission.

An antique dealer, Anton Mogart (the late Gaspard Ulliel), whose luxurious compound serves as the setting for the episode’s adventure story, provides an ancient hint to the location of a ritual held deep in the desert.

Sadly, Marc and Layla will have to journey back in time to see what the night sky looked like 2,000 years ago in order to get a good indication.
