MOON KNIGHT S1 E3 review – A lovely night sky

We were in for a long episode this week, lots of details and even farther into the meat of the story. Yet the question still remains, who is the rightful owner of the body Steven and Marc share?

This week is a deeper dive into what Marc is trying to stop, how he is going to do it and more insight into his marriage with Layla. All this comes with a sprinkle of hints of what awaits in the future episodes.

I’m just going to get the awful out of the way right now, yes there is a knife fight in this episode, no it is not good at all. It was so corny I couldn’t even laugh at it, way too dramatic to be a likable fight scene. Licking the knife was a part of this and so was a bit of dancing, none of this looked cool at all.

Alright, this next bit got me so good. There might be more going on inside Steven/Marc then we all thought possible, there might even be a third personality! I know this is absolutely not a good thing for “the body”, what I’ve taken to calling Steven/Marc now, but I am so excited to find out how this all works and develops the story and character.

It also finally seems that Steven and Marc are kind of getting used to working together, but more like the knock down, drag out fighting brothers kind of way (although Steven is using his smarts to get control). Even going so far as to solve key puzzles to find our villains before the worst is to come. I would also like to mention that Steven gets this puppy love look in his eyes whenever he looks at Layla, it’s super cute and just might mean that she will be leaving this series with two husbands.

We don’t get to see a lot of Moon Knight action, the body fighting in the suit. Just here and there moments and it also sadly looks like we won’t be getting any next week with how some things ended. By the end of this episode, the series has started to feel a little rushed as times, and slow others. As if they haven’t quite decided what type of pace they want to set before the end of the series. Though this could be part of the six episode set up the series is currently in, enough to be a limited series and get people’s interest, then maybe a movie? Or introducing the character in another upcoming Marvel movie (or series). In the end, I’m a bit worried that we won’t be able to get the conclusion we want by the end of this limited series, and even more so that we might not get enough Moon Knight before the end.

Episode three is currently available on Disney+, along with the first two. So do yourself a favor and catch up now before the next episode airs.

Want to catch up before Moon Knight gets too far ahead? Binge the first three episodes now on Disney+ and tune in on Wednesday for new episodes!
