Moon Knight Season 1 Episode 6 sees a number of things happening at the same time. From Marc/Steven coming back to life to Layla becoming an Avatar of another god. Lastly, the battle that was about to come. Last time on the show, Marc and Steven found themselves on a journey to the field of reeds. But before that, they had to come true to each other, or else they would be thrown off the boat to turn into a stone in the lands of Duat.

Thus, Steven and Marc’s journey of self-discovery began. Marc’s dark past became clear to Steven, and he also had to face the harsh truth that he is not the original one. Still, their hearts were balanced but only at the cost of losing Steven. The sixth Episode sees how Marc manages to come back to life while Harrow accomplishes his mission of summoning Ammit as the final battle ensues.

According to Tawaret, Ammit should be trapped inside a human body to vanquish her. Marc does the same, but Khonshu demands to finish the job by killing Harrow. Marc believes there will be no difference between them and Ammit then. Thus he asks Khonshu to do it himself. Marc next wakes up in Steven’s house in London to close the Episode. The post-credit scene sees Khonshu finishing the job with Marc’s third personality Jake Lockley.

Moon Knight Season 1 Episode 6 Review

The finale of Moon Knight Season 1 Episode 6 turned out to be great when it comes to the action side of things. We saw an out-of-world battle between Khonshu and Ammit amidst Moon Knight and Layla’s battle with Harrow. But as things were good on the action side, the same wasn’t for the plot.

The sixth Episode came to answer a number of plots at the same time, and it felt like they tried to rush it instead of investing in them. For example, we would have loved to see more of how Marc/Steven came back to life or how Tawaret came to choose Layla as her next avatar. But it all happened in the same moment. Anyhow, the battle at the end was worth it.

Lastly, the show finally addressed the third personality everyone was theorizing about, and the show itself was teasing. Since the very beginning of the show, there was always a hint that apart from Marc and Steven, there is someone else getting things done. Marc and Steven just didn’t know who.

On our side, we expected Jake Lockley to be the big surprise in the finale, but it seems like the show is keeping his story around for a possible second season as he appears in the post-credit scene. The show has managed to keep its promise by staying away from the major MCU storylines and building itself on its own. So if a second season happens, we will be looking forward to it.
