Is this the best episode of Moon Knight so far? Undoubtedly. The way this show has completely turned has me on the edge of my seat.

Moon Knight, like WandaVision, has pushed the envelope of weirdness in a mystery that’s both riveting and strange at once. It’s bold. It’s unapologetic. And it’s fun as heck. But this week’s episode has truly broken into a whole stratosphere of MCU uniqueness. For the first forty minutes, the episode plays like Indiana Jones, Tomb Raider, and The Mummy with humor, horror, and a riveting storyline. And then a shockingly realistic surprise twist happens that sends the story upside down, delivering a mind-boggling final ten minutes that’ll have your eyebrows furrowed so hard it’ll hurt.

MAGNIFICENT

This show is magnificent. Moon Knight, in its strangeness, has become something unforgettable and kind of magical just like WandaVision and Loki. Oscar Isaac once again knocks it out of the park. If this man doesn’t get an Emmy for his performance it’s biased for the simple fact that this is a Marvel show because honestly, he’s giving a phenomenal performance in this series. May Calamawy was the surprise MVP of this episode, proving to us why Khonshu has his eyes on her as the next Moon Knight. I already liked Layla El-Faouly but now she’s undoubtedly ascended my list of favorite MCU women.

A HAWKE MASTERCLASS

Ethan Hawke once again gives such dimensionality to Arthur Harrow. You can feel his pain as well as his determination to see Ammit’s destiny fulfilled with every bit of gravel in his voice. I hope he gets nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Emmys as well.

Is this the best episode so far? Undoubtedly. The way this show has completely turned has me on the edge of my seat. And considering how great penultimate episodes can be in these MCU series I have a feeling next week’s episode is going to be even more bonkers.

I can’t wait to see where this story is heading in the next two weeks.
