Hello everyone, Matthew Hemenway here. In this video I will be reviewing and analyzing Moon Knight Season 1 Episode 3 that is currently on Disney+. I will go over several topics in this video. I will let you know when the page I will be setting up is ready for to help me support this channel. Thank you, now on with the review.
The episode starts off with Layla getting a passport made by a woman who appears to be her mother. It looks that way is that she is not young, and Layla is younger than her. Layla is going to Egypt to help Marc to stop Arthur Harrow from finding Anmit. As the viewer knows, Arthur Harrow has the seraph and plans to use it bring back Anmit from the dead.
The viewer sees Arthur Harrow in the desert looking for Anmit’s tomb. He has the seraph that he received when Marc dropped it in the last episode fleeing and destroying the demon that Arthur Harrow released in the last episode. They would have shown the viewer what happened in the previous episode. Arthur has a bunch of his followers with him as they search for Anmit’s tomb.
The viewer later sees Marc chasing a couple of people in Egypt and it has the feel of Aladdin to it. The reason is that the viewer sees him jumping rooftops and Aladdin had that feeling when he was fleeing the soldiers that were chasing him. Marc is asking these people questions on where the tomb of Anmit is. Marc is fighting with Steven as the viewer sees the dissociative identity disorder taking shape. Marc goes from Steven back to Marc. Marc is having a tough time with keeping Steven out that he almost lets a person get away. The kid Marc looks at jumps off the cliff by cutting the rope that he was attached to.
Marc tells Khonsu, what do you want me to do? Do you want me to search the entire desert for Arthur Harrow. Khonsu tells them, I will have to do something to get the Gods’ attention. He creates an eclipse by having nighttime taking place during the day. Khonsu knows that they must meet later.
What this means is that the Gods must meet at the Pyramid of Giza. Khonsu hopes this will help stop Arthur Harrow from being successful to finding Anmit. Arthur is twisting the truth and telling the Gods that Khonsu is searching for Anmit’s tomb when the viewer knows that Arthur Harrow is looking for the tomb. Like with Anmit and Khonsu all the Gods use Avatars to communicate with each other as well as observe what is going on. The Gods have determined it is not their place to interfere with mortals. The Gods believe in free will and the fact that humanity abandoned them.
It later takes the viewer to Marc meeting up with Layla and Marc tells her, you should not be here. She asks, what are you afraid of? Marc tells her, it is not the locals that I am afraid of, it is something else. Layla takes Marc to someone who can help compose the star and give a paper guide to find Anmit before Arthur does.
Marc and Layla are out in the desert after they get the star. Marc has Steven help him. He lets Steven take over and Steven helps to put it together. Khonsu tells Steven, I know what it looked like. Khonsu tells Steven to put his hands up and they turn back time to when the stars would have been at the exact moment in time. Khonsu tells Steven, the Gods will imprison me, and you must have Marc rescue me. This is true to the comics as the Gods have imprisoned Khonsu for what they call acting out. It was cool to watch as the viewer would have felt like they were watching an Astronomy demonstration at a planetarium.
To not spoil the ending, nothing more will be revealed be here.
I give Moon Knight Season 1 Episode 3 a 10 out 10. It had the feeling of the comics, and it was accurate to how Khonsu did get imprisoned by the Gods. It does an excellent job of showing the dissociative identity disorder. It has only shown the 2 identities, but I know he does have another identity besides Marc and Steven. I will not reveal it here in this video.
