**Warning – Spoilers ahead for moon knight**

We confirm the Episode 4 release date, provide a brief recap of Episode 3, and discuss Marvel’s penchant for big twists in Episode 4.
Created by Doug Moench, Jeremy Slater and Don Perlin, the series, starring Oscar Isaac as the titular vigilante, Ethan Hawke, Gaspard Ulliel and May Calamawy, follows former US Marine Spector as he struggles with dissociative identity disorder and his newly acquired powers of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.
Summary of Moon Knight Episode 3
During episode 3 of moon knighttitled The friendly guyMarc must get to Ammit’s tomb before Arthur Harrow and Khonshu attempt to inform the other Egyptian gods of Harrow’s malicious plan.
Khonshu sides with Harrow, who shows up to plead his case, and is set in stone by the gods, leaving Marc at an impasse. However, Yatzil, the avatar of Hathor, tells Marc where to find a star map to Ammit’s tomb.
The map lies in Senfu’s sarcophagus and Marc proceeds to question the locals on where to find it before Layla shows up to point Marc in the direction of Anton Mogart.
Marc and Layla go to Anton and examine Senfu’s sarcophagus, where Steven lends his expertise to create a star map out of the cardboard. Khonshu then helps by moving the starry sky back thousands of years to match the constellations on the map.
Episode 4 will start with Steven and Layla going to Ammit’s grave via the map and Arthur wasn’t very happy with their discovery at the end of the last episode.
Along with continuing the base narrative, Episode 4 was teased as a minor game-changer from the start.
