The Egyptian Gods revealed themselves via their avatars last week – and showed a reluctance to get involved with Harrow’s machinations to resurrect Ammit. They seemed predisposed to disbelieve Khonshu, whose testimony was delivered via Marc Spector/Steven Grant within the confines of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Khonshu then took matters into his own hands and invited imprisonment by the Gods – leaving Marc/Steven with the destination of Ammit’s tomb, but with Khonshu out of the picture. Does Khonshu’s imprisonment leave Marc/Steven unable to call upon the Egyptian God’s powers?
This week, Steven and Layla race to Ammit’s tomb to stop Harrow resurrecting her; though last week’s episode had somewhat of an Indiana Jones vibe, for the most part this week it truly leans into that feel even more, with ancient puzzles to solve and even mystical guardians and traps to escape from. There’s some genuinely tense and even scary scenes here – with some implied gore that’s pretty damn gruesome to boot.
It’s excellent stuff – and there’s an unforeseen development that brings back theopening episode’s dreams vs reality setup at the climax.
Once more, we’re left in a truly intriguing place with anyone’s guess as to where we’re headed next. Moon Knight has been brilliantly handled so far, taking in an impressive number of aspects from the various runs of the comic – even finding a place for the more recent Mr Knight personality/costume too.
With just a few episodes to go, it remains to be seen as to how tidily all of the different threads are wrapped up by the end – but it’s going to be one hell of a journey regardless. If you’d told me ten years ago that we’d see a live action Moon Knight series onscreen, I would have been sceptical; I certainly could never have dreamed that it would be so well written, performed and produced as the series has been. It’s a pretty bold and daring piece of work thus far – and given where we leave the action this week, next week feels like a long way away at the moment!
