Moon Knight - Asylum

The appropriately titled "Asylum" offers a lookin inside the mind of Marc Spector (Oscar Isaac) and Steven Grant who find themselves in an undead construct of a psychiatric hospital on their way to the underworld by way of their guide Taweret (Antonia Salib). While putting recent events and their consequences on hold, the episode delves into connection between Marc and Steven and definitively explores which is the original personality of the man who would eventually become Moon Knight. Speaking of the hero, we don't get to see him in action here, but we do get a flashback to Marc's first encounter with Khonshu (F. Murray Abraham) and his acceptance of his new role.

Much of the episode features Marc, and sometimes even Steven, running from a shared truth while attempting to balance their unbalanced nature which threatens their path to the afterlife. There are plenty of flashbacks and reveals here, both large and small, and more of Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke) as a psychiatrist who turns out to actually help Marc and Steven admit to some hard truths. The ending suggests a big change moving forward, but to move forward Marc has to find a way back to the world and confront Harrow and Ammit.
