Moon Knight Episode 3, “The Friendly Type,” saw Khonshu getting imprisoned by Ennead for misusing his powers. Thus, Marc (and Steven) are left with no suit to summon in the fourth episode as Harrow is advancing towards freeing Ammit. Therefore, fans expected something pretty impressive from Episode 4 of the MCU’s latest miniseries.
The hopes for the fourth episode were relatively high as fans expected to finally have a look at Ammit, the notorious and outcast Egyptian goddess, alongside the other action. Therefore, It would not be an exaggeration to say that with the fourth episode, “The Tomb,” Moon Knight has once again successfully hit the right notes.
Moon Knight Season 1 Episode 4 is available now on the Disney Plus, and readers can check out what transpired in the same as follows.
What happened in Moon Knight Season 1 Episode 4?
Moon Knight Season 1 Episode 4 starts with Selim, the Avatar of Osiris (The head of the Ennead Council), carrying an imprisoned Khonshu in the form of a small figure, an ushabti. He then places Khonshu’s ushabti in front of a lighted lamp, and the camera zooms out to show a plethora of other small figures kept in small chambers.
The episode continues from the desert where Layla and Steven were last seen in “The Friendly Type.” Steven is still unconscious, and Layla tries to help him, but someone, presumably Harrow’s men, suddenly starts firing at them. Layla then seeks shelter in a nearby vehicle while the Moon Knight protagonist is still unconscious and lying out in the desert. Layla then distracts and kills them off with a lighted red-smoke grenade. Meanwhile, Steven is back on his feet.
Layla and Steven drive away from the location to reach the tomb earlier than Harrow and his people. In the meantime, the latter tells the former about his deal with Marc. He elaborates how Marc will leave his body once Khonshu’s job is done. The revelation irks both Layla and Marc, as the latter even demands the body back from Steven.
Amid all the arguments, both the Moon Knight protagonist and Layla are stuck in the middle of the desert as they have to keep moving on foot. Layla spots the Harrow’s men, and it seems like they have almost reached inside the tomb. She asks the Moon Knight protagonist to hurry as they procure the supplies left behind by the caravan of Arthur Harrow.
As Steven is collecting the supplies, Marc keeps appearing via reflections to remind the former about the gravity of the situation. The latter also tells the former again that without Khonshu, there will be no Moon Knight suit, so Steven must give him the body back.
However, Steven reprimands him as he thinks he can help himself and Layla. The argument takes a funny turn when Marc asks Steven if he is in love with Layla. Furthermore, Marc threatens his other identity that he will throw them off the cliff if that’s true.
As Layla and Steven get ready for their task, the former tries to kiss the latter, but the Moon Knight protagonist, out of guilt, reveals why Marc wants to push her away. However, Layla gets annoyed due to Marc’s decision as she expects honesty from him. Steven embraces her, and the fans finally see an awkward kiss between Layla and the Moon Knight protagonist.
However, once Layla goes down the tomb site, Steven’s hand punches him immediately, indicating Marc’s anger. The Moon Knight protagonist also lands down the tomb site by a free fall, courtesy of his other identity. At the site, Steven shows his kid-like enthusiasm after looking at the structures at the tomb entrance. Layla and the Moon Knight protagonist then move on as the former talks about her father after the latter enquire her about the same.
Both move ahead as Steven deduces more about the last Avatar being a Pharaoh. Amid all the fascinating structures featuring mythological figures, both Layla and Steven come across the horrors in the tomb as they find blood spilled in different places. As they come across other graphic things at the location while finding the exit, gunshots are heard.
As both Steven and Layla hide, Heka Priest (the tomb’s guardian) comes with a man and bludgeons him in front of them. It is then revealed that the Heka Priest responds to sound and cannot see. Thus, the noise created by both of them alerts the Priest as he tries to kill them. Layla successfully escapes, while Steven runs off after presumably squishing the Heka Priest with a metal frame.
As both are moving ahead alone, Layla narrowly escapes death at the hands of another Heka Priest as they fight off before encountering Harrow. On the other hand, the Moon Knight protagonist comes across the long-lost tomb of Alexander the Great. Meanwhile, Harrow and Layla have a talk where the former reveals he knew the latter’s father, Abdullah El Faouly.
Harrow tries to manipulate Layla further by talking about Marc’s pains, and he is the one who killed her father. On the other hand, Steven opens Alexander the Great’s tomb to find Ammit’s ushabti. He reaches out to the mummy’s throat to find the ushabti as it was presumed that Alexander was Ammit’s voice.
Steven successfully retrieves the ushabti as Layla reaches the spot. She then confronts Marc to show up and tell her about her father’s demise. As Marc returns to the body, he asks Layla to leave with him, but the latter wants to know the truth about her father. It is then revealed that Marc’s partner killed everyone at the dig site and even shot him.
In the meantime, Harrow and his men reach the spot, and Marc is forced to fight with them with Alexander’s axe. However, he is shot twice by Harrow, and it seems like an end for the Moon Knight protagonist. The scene then shifts to a hospital where a treasure hunt movie “Tomb Buster” is being shown on the TV, with the main character named Steven Grant.
The patients and the attendants at the hospital are revealed to be characters previously seen in the show as the camera turns towards the Moon Knight protagonist. He is shown in a drugged or an adverse condition, as he is attended by a caretaker whose face resembles Layla. Meanwhile, a bingo game is going on in the background.
Holding a Moon Knight figure, the protagonist falls off his wheelchair after seeing himself in the mirror and uttering Steven’s name. Afterward, it is revealed that his doctor is none other than Arthur Harrow himself. However, the doctor claims that Marc has a mental condition that makes him believe his thoughts are a reality, while the Moon Knight protagonist tries to remember what transpired in the events of the past episodes.
In the episode’s final moments, Marc escapes the doctor’s office and finds Steven, who was locked in a tomb. Despite being confused about the hospital, both try to run and finally encounter a mysterious figure in the hallways. The figure turns out to be a friendlier Egyptian hippo god. Both Marc and Steven then scream.
