Moon Knight Episode 6 Season Finale Recap

With Moon Knight episode 6, the series finally came to an end, and we had most of the answers we were looking for in episode 1. While the finale wasn’t as exciting as Hawkeye’s or Loki’s, it had its fair share of twists, turns, and reveals.

In this article, I’ll be giving you a quick recap of everything that happened in the series finale, how things turn up for Steven and Marc, what happens to Harrow and Ammit, and even explain the ending. So, let’s jump right in.

Moon Knight Ep 6 ends with Steven and Marc returning to Earth (the mortal dimension) and becoming Khonshu’s avatar. Layla becomes Taweret’s avatar, and Moon Knight defeats Harrow. They bind his body with Ammit and make her vulnerable to death.

Episodes 4 and 5 majorly took place in the Egyptian underworld, The Duat, and inside Marc’s mind. He faced all his fears, and his scales balanced, but at a cost. Steven had to sacrifice his life and stay in The Duat forever for Marc to enjoy paradise.

Moon Knight series finale picks up from this point. Marc doesn’t want to be in paradise without Steven, so he rushes back to the Duat and tries to save Steven. However, like the latter, even Spector turns into stone.

But, things take a turn when Osiris decides to open up the gates to the mortal dimension for both Steven and Marc to pass through. Meanwhile, Layla on Earth reaches the Gods’ Chamber, where Harrow releases Ammit.

While Ammit had always stood for balance in the universe, she nevertheless chooses Harrow as her avatar, whose soul is unbalanced. Layla, who had disguised herself as one of Harrow’s henchmen, finds Khonshu’s Ushabti or the stone statue and breaks it, thus releasing Khonshu once again.

On one hand, Khonshu tries to lure Layla into becoming his avatar, and on the other hand, Marc Spector comes back to life. This time around, the two join forces again, and Layla becomes Taweret’s avatar to stop Ammit. However, she is clear that this is a temporary arrangement.

The final showdown happens between the giant Egyptian Gods Ammit and Khonshu and between Harrow, Marc/Steven/Moon Knight, and Layla. In this long-drawn battle, there is a point where Harrow overpowers both of them, and that’s when Marc/Steven blacks out.

When he comes back to his senses, he and Layla are surprised to see all the henchmen around them dead. Harrow is barely alive, and even his staff is damaged. Not realizing what has happened, the two go into the Gods’ chamber and, along with the other gods, bind Harrow’s body to Ammit’s.

While Khonshu wants Moon Knight to kill Harrow and thus Ammit, Marc refuses since it’s not his job. After this, Khonshu releases Marc and Steven as his avatars.

In the post-credit scene, Harrow is seen in an asylum similar to the one in Marc’s imagination. However, a man speaking Spanish breaks him out of the hospital and puts him into a Limo.

When Arthur gets seated in a comfortable position, he sees Khonshu, who talks about Marc’s trust issues and his protective nature towards Layla. The Egyptian God mentions how Spector was always worried that he would take Layla as his avatar. However, he never intended to let go of Marc because he was truly messed up.

This is the point where Jake Lockley is revealed. He is essentially Marc’s third personality sitting in the driver’s seat. He turns towards Harrow and shoots him to death, and with this, the show ends.

So overall, the finale was pretty average compared to other MCU shows such as Hawkeye and Loki. In general, the entire show wasn’t as gripping as I would’ve wanted it to be, but I guess that’s a personal preference.

A couple of things that truly stood out are the background score and the performances by Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke. They carried the show through and through, with great support from May Calamawy.

MCU is nailing the representation aspect of casting in the last few titles with characters such as Echo and Makkari. In fact, in the finale, as Layla is saving a bus full of people, a girl asks her if she’s an Egyptian superhero, and the fist of Taweret responds affirmatively.

One thing is pretty obvious. MCU is looking to expand its audience base across the globe while also targeting Gen-Z. The lingo, tone, and personality of various characters are being written in such a way that they relate more to the next-gen audience.

However, keeping that aside, if we look at Moon Knight’s writing, it seemed to have a similar problem as Eternals or The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. People weren’t as invested in those titles.

This is because when the story is character-driven, it needs to be written a certain way. Oscar Isaac truly gives his everything to the role, and the switch between Marc and Steven is incredible. But he can only do so much when the writing doesn’t fascinate or surprise the audience. So overall, it was a decent watch.

In the future, I hope we see these characters in connection with other MCU titles and understand how they fit into the larger story. In fact, the story of Layla as Taweret’s avatar and Jake Lockley, the personality both Marc and Steven are unaware of, and their dynamics with Khonshu remain open-ended. So, it would be incredible to see that soon.
