In the first episode, we see Steven transporting between London and the old village ruled by Arthur. He suddenly transforms into his split personality disorder character named Marc and becomes Moon Knight, then kills a bunch of people, then again turns normal.
He gets transformed into this character whenever he is in trouble and again comes back to his senses, but he doesn’t fully understand or remember what happened to him.
Episode 1 was full of twists and turns, and in this article, we will explain the complete ending of Moon Knight Episode 1.
Moon Knight Episode 1 Ending Explained: Who is Harrow’s Cult? and What happened to Steve in Episode 1?
As explained above, Steven suffers from a dissociative identity disorder. Whenever he is in trouble, he transforms into Marc and becomes Moon Knight, kills people or creatures, and again returns to his normal form.
In Episode 1, we see Steven discovering that he has a split personality named Marc which takes control of his body at times and transforms into Moon Knight.
He discovers this at the end of Episode 1 at the time when he discovers a cellphone in his apartment and noticed bunch of missed calls from Layla.
It seems like Layla has been trying to reach Marc all this time but wasn’t able to do so.
While talking to Layla, Steven realizes that Layla is addressing him as Marc, so he doesn’t understand why the woman is calling him Marc.
Suddenly, we see a sequence where he feels the presence of some godly creature in his room.
This Layla can be Marc’s romantic interest, who, as per the comics, it is Marlene. We also saw some other names on the cellphone called “DuChamp”, and as per our assumption, he is an old friend of Marc.
Now coming, Steven, after discovering that he has a split personality named living in his body as Marc, gets horrid, and he goes to his bathroom and looks himself in the mirror and sees the Egyptian God Khonshu, aka the nocturnal “God of the Moon” appearing in front of him.
Steven runs towards the elevator, and we see the strange elevator scene as showcased in the Moon Knight trailer.
After getting off from the elevator, Steven goes to the Museum and informs the security guard that someone is following him.
Arthur and Harrow’s Cult also reached the Museum and took Steven to side to discuss somthing important. Arthur tells Steven that he belongs to Harrow’s Cult, and they serve an Egyptian Deity named Ammit, an old Egyptian god.
Arthur tells Steven that Ammit got tired of waiting for the people committing crimes before punishing them. Instead, Ammit gave powers to Arthur, who now uses these powers to predict (with the help of tattoed scale on his arm) whether people will commit a crime in future and punish them for the same.
Ammit was imprisoned for her deed in the past by the old Egyptian god, and through a golden scrab, only the goddess can be free, which now in possession of Steve and Marc, which is why they are following Steve.
When Arthur tries to use his powers against Steve and notices that the scale goes wild, which suggests that Steve has some hidden powers and can easily defeat Ammit’s forces.
Arthur also tells him that he has chaos in him. When Steve tries to go to security and tells them about Arthur, he notices the Security guard also belongs to Harrow’s Cult. And it looked like he was placed in this Museum by them to protect something.
Moon Knight Episode 1 Ending Explained: Steve and Marc Becoming One as Moon Knight
Towards the end of Moon Knight Episode 1, at night in Museum, Steve saw some Jackal Creature following him.
With Ammit’s powers, it looked like Arthur had awakened the creature to retrieve the golden scrab from Steve.
When Steve runs towards the bathroom, we see he again encounters his dual personality, Marc, who tries to talk to him through the mirror glass.
Marc tells him to give control of his body to him so that he can save them both. Finally, after much thought, Steve gave away control of his body, and we see Marc taking control of his body and transforming himself into Moon Knight and killing the Jackal Creature.
Who are the old Egyptian Gods on Moon Knight? and Who is Khonshu?
As Steve mentioned earlier in Episode 1 of Moon Knight, mentioned a group of Super Human gods named The Ennead or Great Ennead.
The group includes nine deities in Egyptian mythology worshipped at Heliopolis: the sun god Atum, Shu, and Tefnut (Atum’s children), Geb and Nut (Shu and Tefnut’s children), Osiris, Isis, Set, and Nephthys ( Geb and Nut’s children).
The Ennead sometimes includes the son of Osiris and Isis, Horus as well.
The Gods used to live in a realm called Celestial Heliopolis, adjoining Earth and the people of Ancient Egypt worshipped them.
Khonshu, here AKA the God of Moon, was also among the Ancient gods, and he was known as the Gods of the Greater Gods; in episode 1, it is not clear the correlation between Khonsu and Ammit with the Ennet maybe the Episode 2 will be able to reveal more about that.
Who is Marc in Moon Knight?
For those who do not know about Marc yet, we will explain it in this portion. Marc, here is the Moon Knight. He was a mercenary once who was left to die in a desert; then, he was revived by The Moon God Khonshu.
Khonsu appointed him as Moon Knight to enact justice and protect those who travel at night. Marc also has dissociative identity disorder like Steve.
