What Happened in Moon Knight Episode 3?
In Moon Knight Episode 2, The Friendly Type, Layla goes to Lagaro, a passport maker, and her history is unearthed as they conversed about what Layla is worried about. Layla says she does not steal antiquities, she returns those which are stolen to the rightful owners. Lagaro proceeds to put the blame to Layla’s father for how she turned out because as she said, dig sites are not for kids.
In Egypt, Arthur Harrow finally learned about the location of Ammit’s tomb using the scarab and orders his people to dig until it is full out in the open. The scene jumps to Marc in a chase with Harrow’s people and Steven convinces him not to kill. However, as they both blacked out, to their surprise, the three men are already dead.
Much to the strangeness of the scene, Marc asks what Steven did and he swore he wasn’t the one who did it. Steven, more often than not, tells the truth. With Marc purporting that it is Steven who did it and with Steven denying what just happened, both are in disbelief as there may be another personality that both of them aren’t aware of, and this one, it’s much more brutal than Marc.
Marc confronts Khonshu as to how they can stop the resurrection of Ammit and Khonshu does what he thinks the other gods would need to notice him and the situation with a total solar eclipse. While Arthur’s people are shocked on what is happening, they were ordered to continue until the site is excavated.
Khonshu explains to Marc that the avatars are being called upon around the world and they got into the Great Pyramid of Giza. Khonshu reveals that the last time he conversed with the gods, he got banished. Steven, with so much love in the Egyptian myths, is in awe because finally, after years of studying, he will finally be inside of it.
There, Marc is welcomed by Yatzil, the Avatar of Hathor. She warns him that the feeling will be strange but he would get used to it. The Ennead council convenes and all the avatars summon their gods, in attendance were Horus, Isis, Osiris, Tefnut, and Hathor, five gods, enough to reach a quorum. Khonshu accuses Arthur Harrow to summoning Ammit but Harrow says he is but a tourist.
See, what makes Harrow lethal is not his fighting skills nor his violence, it’s his words. Arthur manages to turn the table against Khonshu, revealing that his avatar is but a person used for Khonshu’s personal interests. Marc is made to reveal that he is unwell and they concluded that the meeting be adjourned with a warning on Khonshu that the next time he changes the sky, stone prison will be the consequence.
Yatzil seemed to see through what Marc is facing and offered another way to help him by teaching him another way to locate Ammit’s tomb, through the sarcophagus of Senfu, a maggi, the one tasked to record the location of the tomb if ever the gods would retract their decision. However, it is not an easy mountain to climb as the sarcophagus was sold on the black market.
Seems that the path leads Marc back to Layla as she offers her help to save the thousands of people who will die if Ammit gets resurrected. On their way to the location, people on the boat danced to music familiar to both of them, one played during their wedding and Layla told Marc that he should’ve told her about Steven. We finally see Marc, raw and exposed, only wanting to save his wife from the mess.
They go to Anton Mogart whom Layla has dealt with in the past at Madripoor, the same one introduced in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Layla introduces Marc as “Rufino” and that they are there to see Mogart’s collection which includes the sarcophagus. Mogart expresses that his collection is his way of preserving history and that takes responsibility.
When Layla and Marc were allowed to go near the sarcophagus, they were to arrange what seems like a map and given that Marc wouldn’t let to body go and give control to Steven, trouble ensures. Arthur and his people show up to offer Mogart power and to expose that Marc has something to do with the death of Layla’s father. Harrow destroys the sarcophagus.
Marc summons the suit and fought Mogart’s men but in the middle of the battle, Marc fights within as Steven is asking to be in control. The only way to give Marc total control is when Layla was in danger, about to be killed by Mogart. Afterwards, Layla brought up what Harrow revealed and Marc tells her that she does not know him at all.
In the middle of the desert, while arguing what to do with the fabric from Senfu’s sarcophagus, Layla pushes Marc to give the body up to Steven because he sure knows what to do about it. Even when he is reluctant, he knew it would be the only way. He gave the body to Steven who figured out the puzzle pieces but realized that the night when the map was made is not the same night they are under.
Thankfully, Khonshu is the god of the moon and he says, “I remember that night, I remember every night.” From the tone of his voice, Khonshu is there, vulnerable, and he offers a sacrifice for the greater good: he broke the promise he had with the gods and manipulated the skies once more. This time, he did it with Steven’s help to bring the skies to when the map was made. Khonshu’s words are haunting, “Steven, tell Marc to free me.”
Khonshu knew the cost of his sacrifice: stone imprisonment. But for Marc, Steven, and Layla, for the greater good, he gave himself up. The avatars of the gods convenes and imprisoned Khonshu. There, Harrow talks to Khonshu’s stone figure and attributes to the god of the moon his victory.
