Okay, however the Moon Knight Episode 6 post-credit scene is so excellent.
First, when Arthur Harrow releases Ammit, the god takes the type of a crocodile, which is one thing taken immediately from historical Egyptian mythology. This goddess was all the time depicted as having the top of a crocodile, the entrance legs of a lion, and the again of a hippo.
In Jeff Lemire’s Moon Knight comics, which the present is closely based mostly on, Ammit additionally makes an look after posing as Marc’s therapist, which has similarities to Arthur Harrow being Marc/Steven’s therapist within the psych ward.
When Khonshu is making an attempt to persuade Layla to change into his new avatar now that Marc’s gone, he calls her “little bug.” That is seemingly Khonshu’s means of making an attempt to enchantment to Layla, contemplating her father referred to as her “little scarab.”
When Marc leaves the Discipline of Reeds and finds Steven once more, it is similar to a second from Jeff Lemire’s Moon Knight comics when Marc comes face-to-face with Steven and Jake Lockley within the desert and Marc asks if they will stick with him as a result of he is scared.
One thing I seen after I rewatched Episode 1 to prep for this finale is that the boat Taweret is on within the afterlife will be noticed in Gus’s fish tank within the very first episode.
Okay, OKAY. Layla changing into Taweret’s avatar is so wonderful and so excellent for her character arc, and it is seemingly a re-invention of a Marvel comedian superhero named Scarlet Scarab. Within the comics, Abdul Faoul goes by the Scarlet Scarab and is considered one of Marvel’s first Egyptian heroes, very similar to Layla within the MCU.
Additionally, Layla’s superhero persona being Scarlet Scarab is a good nod to the nickname her father gave her, “little scarab.” Additionally, earlier on this finale episode, her transformation was foreshadowed when she picked up the scarab off Marc’s lifeless physique.
That is only a refined element that proves how wonderful Oscar Isaac’s efficiency is on this present. When Layla reunites with Marc after which Steven, you’ll be able to see Oscar does a small head nod earlier than Steven takes over Marc’s physique.
If you happen to look carefully, you’ll be able to see that Layla’s outfit when she turns into Taweret’s avatar incorporates a scarab/bug, which is a possible nod to the superhero persona Scarlet Scarab. Additionally, it matches Taweret’s outfit that we noticed in Episodes 4 and 5.
Within the post-credits scene, you’ll be able to spot a QR code on a poster within the psych ward Arthur Harrow is a affected person in. If you happen to scan the code, it’s going to take you to a different free Moon Knight comedian referred to as Moon Knight: Acts of Evil Problem #1 from 2019, which options Moon Knight preventing Kang the Conqueror. After all, Kang first appeared within the MCU in Loki, and he’ll seem subsequent in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
As Arthur is getting wheeled outdoors, you’ll be able to see that the hospital he’s staying in known as Sienkiewicz Psychiatric Hospital, which is a nod to comedian e-book artist Invoice Sienkiewicz. Invoice helped give the primary Moon Knight comedian collection its signature look, significantly the darkish tones and gritty elements related to the character.
As soon as Arthur meets with Khonshu contained in the limo, you’ll be able to see that Khonshu is now sporting a white swimsuit. It is a nod to Jeff Lemire’s 2016 Moon Knight comics, the place Khonshu additionally wears a white swimsuit. As I’ve stated earlier than, this comedian run closely impressed the TV collection and even featured Marc in a psych ward.
After all, we FINALLY meet Jake Lockley within the post-credits scene when he shoots Arthur Harrow. Within the Moon Knight comics, Jake is Marc’s third character alongside himself and Steven. Lastly assembly Jake additionally confirms that he is the extra violent model of Marc that we have seen in just a few episodes of Moon Knight, notably when each Marc and Steven black out and may’t keep in mind what occurred.
Additionally, Jake driving Khonshu’s limo is a refined nod to Jake’s comedian e-book origins. Within the comics, Jake Lockley is a cab driver, which is a talent that is useful when he is Moon Knight, since he is aware of the streets of NYC so effectively. The collection additionally gave Jake his signature hat from the comics.
And at last, Khonshu and Jake’s limo is taken immediately from the 2014 Moon Knight comedian e-book collection by Warren Ellis, Declan Shalvey, and Jordie Bellaire. The limo is the first mode of transportation for Mr. Knight within the comics, and you may even see that the license plate reads “SPKTR,” aka Spector. Within the comics, Steven Grant is a millionaire, so we might be getting extra of these origins if we get one other season.

Properly, there you could have it! Hope you’ve got loved my Moon Knight particulars ramblings. Gonna take a really fast break and will probably be again for Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity AND Ms. Marvel.
