On Wednesday, the final episode of Marvel Studios’ hit series “Moon Knight” premiered on Disney+. So, how does the finale hold up to the rest of the series?

I have thoroughly enjoyed the previous five episodes, so I was greatly anticipating the finale. Overall, the episode left me a bit conflicted. Let me begin with my praises of the episode.

Once again, Oscar Isaac delivered an incredible performance as Marc Spector. He picks up from the sorrow of episode five and drives straight into action mode. The stakes are high and the pace is fast. Right alongside him is May Calawamy, the actress who plays Layla, pursuing an unexpected new character arc that teases a new superhero addition to the MCU.

On the other side, the plot seems a bit rushed. The wrap up felt loose and left quite a few questions unanswered. Considering the show is not planned to have a second season, Moon Knight’s future is uncertain. As for me, I am anticipating his next appearance.
