What was given is over. ‘Moon Knight’ (Moon Knight) has finished his adventures on Disney + and we could have liked it more or lessbut it has been really refreshing to see a fiction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe again without half of The Avengers appearing.
And, almost as expected, the end of the series has been somewhat cryptic about what really happened, using the post-credits scene to give us the missing information. Of course, from here spoilers for the last episode.
Once defeated, somehow, to Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke), Marc/Steven decide to give up once and for all to be the avatar of Khonshu. The next thing we know is that we wake up again in the mental hospital, knowing this time that it is not real but a manifestation of limbo, beyond, or its passage between states.
New awakening and this time we return to the real world once and for all: Steven/Marc wakes up in his London apartment. He is at peace with himselfthere are two fish in the tank but… why does he keep tying himself to the bed and apparently doing all that ritual to find out if he’s “back to mischief”? Does he still have “absences”?
Hi Jake Lockley
These doubts are resolved in the post-credit scene., which shows us what has happened to Arthur Harrow. In it, and following the thread of playing with the idea of the characters’ dementia, we see the villain in the Sienkiewicz psychiatric hospital (a good nod to the cartoonist) being taken in a wheelchair by a mysterious figure who speaks to him in Spanish.
There is an interesting detail here: that unlike Chicago’s Putham, this psychiatric hospital yes it does look real. Or, at least, everything tells us that we are in the real world instead of in that manifestation of the Egyptian afterlife. Another thing is that we know how Harrow got there.
Stunned, Harrow is bundled into a limo where Khonshu is sitting with a “new” avatar willing to do what Marc and Steven refused: execute his revenge. The executing arm is one that we comic fans have been waiting for to appear throughout the series: Jake Lockley, the taxi driver —well, here just a driver—, the third personality of our protagonist.
As Khonshu warns, this personality, much more loose and without anchors than the others, is one that neither Marc nor Steven are aware of. This implies that it was Lockley who emerged and defeated (causing the destruction we saw in the series finale) once and for all the villain of the series. Also that the taxi driver is relentless, without consideration.
Although there are no confirmed future appearances of the character (it does not seem that there will be season 2), this ending does open the door to future stories in which we see how Marc/Steven and this third personality manage to coexist. But for now, we will have to wait.
