The fourth episode of Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight Season 1 dropped on April 13 on Disney+. The six-episode miniseries has already become the talk of the town with the overwhelming response it is getting from critics and fans. Many have already declared it “the best Marvel show ever.”
American actor, Oscar Isaac, known for movies like Dune, Ex Machina, Annihilation, and more, is playing the show’s protagonist, a caped warrior who has been suffering from a dissociative identity disorder. Fans are now waiting for the arrival of the fourth episode as the third one, titled “The Friendly Type,” ended on an enthralling note.
Here are the additional details about the release date of Moon Knight Season 1 Episode 5.
Moon Knight Season 1 Episode 5 Release Date
Like every other Disney+ Marvel original, the episodes of Moon Knight are going to drop every week. The first four episodes were released on successive Wednesdays at midnight (PT), starting from March 30, and the fifth one is expected to follow suit. Thus, Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight Episode 5 will drop on the coming Wednesday, i.e., April 27, 2022, at midnight (PT).
How to watch Moon Knight Season 1 Episode 5?
It has already been mentioned that the show about the Marvel character is a Disney+ original. Therefore, it will exclusively be available on Disney’s OTT platform worldwide, except for Disney+ Hotstar in some regions. Viewers will need to purchase a suitable plan for the OTT platform at their convenience.
They can go for a $7.99 per month plan or get an annual subscription for $79.99. Either plan will allow access to a complete catalog of Marvel (except the Spider-Man series) and Disney content, including web originals, channel shows, movies, and acquired media of the American multinational entertainment conglomerate.
What do the reactions tell?
The fourth episode saw Steve (and Marc) losing access to the Mr. Knight (and Moon Knight) suit after Khonshu was imprisoned. Based on pacing, the majority of episode four felt like a filler added to increase the length of the show. Much to the dismay of the fans, neither Ammit nor the previously teased personality of the Moon Knight protagonist showed up in the episode.
However, in the second half, the fourth episode picked up the pace and broke the expectation bar set by the previous ones. The latest episode has successfully bent the protagonist’s reality and showcased some scenes in the final minutes, including some surprise appearances that can potentially blow anyone’s mind.
Moon Knight has already garnered a 94% Audience Score, while the Tomatometer showcases a score of 87% on Rotten Tomatoes. Similarly, Metacritic, another reputed review aggregator, has registered a Metascore of 69%, indicating generally favorable reviews, alongside a user rating of 7.0. Although these ratings are subject to change, it is implausible to believe that they will swing wildly and nullify the initial positive reception.
