Moon Knight Episode 1 Breakdown & Easter Eggs

The episode starts with a look at cult leader Arthur Harrow. In the show, he is the leader of the followers of Ammit. In the comics, he is a Nobel Prize candidate for his work in pain theory. The glass thing might be a nod to the former unless they explain it more in future episodes.

Steven Grant wakes up chained to his bed. He does this and many other things around his apartment to reassure himself that he did not get up and wander around in the night. After another day at the museum, Steven attempts to stay away. However, he falls asleep at some point and awakens in a field in Germany. If that castle looks familiar then you too watched Marvel’s What If?

The voice of Khonshu is heard, clearly annoyed that Steven once again is in control of the body. After a run-in with Harrow and his goons who are after the golden scarab Steven somehow has in his pocket, he flees. But not before he blacks out again and comes to with bloody fists and a pile of beaten-up bad guys around him.

Some more blacking out, more yelling by Khonshu, and poof Steven wakes up back at home. It was all a dream. Or was it? Harrow has followed him to the museum and sends jackals after him at night. Good thing Marc is around-ish to help.
