Moon Knight is a Marvel Studios production series created by Jeremy Slater from The Marvel Comics. Mark Spector, an avaricious, who is suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder is drawn into a deadly enigma involving Egyptian Gods with many alters.
The series premiered on the 30th March 2022 and ran for six episodes; the finale aired on the 4th of May 2022. It has received positive reviews and is currently running on Disney+ Hotstar.
Let us look at a detailed review of the final episode of this series below.
The finale episode of the series Moon Knight has given us all that we wanted, action, mystery, twists, and revelations managing to wrap up loose ends after an intense cliffhanger.
The episode opens up with Layla (May Calamawy) in desperation to stop Arthur Harrow after her husband has been shot, it seems difficult for her to do it alone but she tries.
She follows Arthur into the Giza pyramid and attacks Ennead’s avatars and develops a plan to free Ammit.
Layla is in a state of shock because Ammit turns into a massive goddess from a small rock with a tail. But it all seems out of whack because his release meant only the possibility of bad things.
Layla manages to release Khonshu from the Ushabti gods who trapped him and refuses to take control of Khonsu’s avatar to defeat Ammit. This does not seem to last long as Khonshu wishes to take Ammit down on his own.
However, before a winner is declared, we witness Mark Spectator in the afterlife, who despite being in peace cannot accept his death.
He tells Goddess Tawaret that he wishes to return for Steven who lies frozen in the sands of Duat (until last week).
Despite, Tawaret telling him that this violates the rules of the afterlife, he returns and accepts Steven as a part of him that makes him complete (whole) and he is no longer broken.
RECONCILIATION BETWEEN MARC AND STEVEN
The scene showcasing the reunion between Marc and Steven is very touching in the entire show. Isaac delivers a monologue expressing to Steven that he cannot defeat Ammit alone and cannot live his life without him.
Unsurprisingly, Steven is released from the sands of Duat, escaping the cycle of the afterlife with the help of goddess Tawaret.
The final sequence is mind-blowing and packed with action and thrill.
While Layla, Marc, and Steven team up against Harrow (while Ammit and Khonshu fight in the background), dragging Harrow to the Pyramid Of Giza.
After a lot of drama not only Ammit is defeated, but Marc comes to his stupendous end and refuses to kill Harrow, and reclaims his free will against Khonshu.
The series ends on a gratifying note with Marc and Steven blacking out at the tomb and waking up at their flat in London.
They have a conversation about their lives after which the two finally look like they are at peace and find the right balance they were looking for between them.
Although the finale episode was short and fast-paced, It has successfully portrayed mental illness, pain, and loneliness in their rawest form.
The entire series contains great action sequences despite the fact that it rushes through with the characters without wrapping them up.
It manages to tighten all the loose ends towards the final episode with a more than satisfying ending.
This series showcases an action-packed finale and mysterious cliffhangers, revealing the characters and their struggles making it a classic series.
Only time will tell if this show will have a second season, but after six weeks of action and emotions, it seems like fans are happy to follow Marc and Steven wherever they choose to go next.
