Moon Knight ended on a high note as Oscar Isaac‘s Marc Spector and Steven Grant finally found some inner peace, leaving their superhero-ing behind them. Yet, the Egyptian God Khonshu had other plans with a third alter, Jake Lockley, still being in his control and seemingly made his arrival known by shooting Ethan Hawke‘s villainous Arthur Harrow. At least, that is what we assumed going by the way the show ended but director Mohamed Diab may have hinted at there being more to this story.
Twitter user @boda16_ was kind enough to offer a translation of a recent Facebook Q&A with Moon Knight director Mohamed Diab. In it, he was asked about how he was able to kill Ethan Hawke’s Arthur Harrow even with Ammit inside him. The question made sense given that even Marc Spector seemingly returned from the dead with the help of his Egyptian god. Well, Diab’s response may awaken some theories on his true fate. His only response was:
Are you sure he’s dead?Mohamed Diab
It definitely would’ve been a shame to not further explore the character of Arthur Harrow, as we never truly got to fully explore his connection with Khonshu. He hinted that he used to be his Avatar, but we never actually fully explored what that meant and maybe how he looked like as his Moon Knight. Perhaps he had a completely different job, and seeing a more unhinged version through the lens of Harrow would be interesting to explore. For now, we can only speculate as there’s no renewal for the series.
