Ending Of Moon Knight Episode 1

Moon Knight (Oscar Isaac) has arrived in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and his Disney+ show introduces the complex and dangerous character in a particularly bold fashion.

The first episode of "Moon Knight" focuses on a seemingly ordinary museum gift shop worker called Steven Grant, who becomes the center of a series of increasingly bewildering mysteries.

The episode moves between London and a strange village ruled by a man called Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke), 

Whose affiliation with the judgement goddess Ammit has apparently given him the power to take away the lives of the unworthy. 

Yet, the biggest danger seems to be inside Steven's own head, as unexplained blackouts transport him into increasingly dangerous situations, and a creepy disembodied voice barks orders in his ear.

By the end of the episode, it's clear that Steven is also a mercenary called Marc Spector, who in turn can become the mysterious costumed character known as the Moon Knight. 

However, that's far from the only thing the final scenes reveal. Let's take a closer look at the ending of "Moon Knight" Episode 1.

Steven Grant is a man tormented by a situation that he doesn't fully understand, and he's been trying to control his tendency to wander around while he's unconscious with a number of DIY tricks.

It's clear that this has been going on for a long time, and "Moon Knight" Episode 1 is when the levee finally breaks.

As the show nears its end, Steven gets to peek behind the veil when he discovers physical evidence of another personality's existence, tucked away in a hidey-hole in his apartment.

The cell phone he discovers is a particularly important find, because it introduces viewers to multiple potentially important characters.

Layla (May Calamawy) has been trying to reach Marc a whole bunch of times, and might very well turn out to be the MCU version of Marc's romantic interest in the comics, Marlene.
