Moon Knight, Episode 6: Scarlet Scarlet Leila explained
Soon in the 6th series of Moon Knight we follow Leila El-Fowley, who seeks revenge on Arthur Harrow for the murder of Mark / Stephen. Hiding her identity and brandishing a knife, she tries to sneak up on him and kill Harrow before he can release Amit.
Leila, however, is stopped by Taveret, the goddess of the hippopotamus we saw in episodes 4 and 5 – if the latter owns one of Harrow’s dead victims. Tavert tries to convince Leila to become her avatar so she can give Leila superpowers to help her fight Harrow.
Leila refuses – well, all the same at first. Later in the Great Pyramid of Giza, Leila agrees to allow Taveret to own her (and become Taveret’s avatar in the process) to help Honshu and Mark / Stephen stop Harrow. Harrow tries to bury Leila under a large pile of rubble, but, imbued with the strength of Taveret, she escapes from her grave – and appears with abilities and a stellar costume: Leila became the Scarlet Scarab. And we know it’s her superhero nickname with the article Marvel.com which confirms.
“Wait, who’s the Scarlet Scarab?” we hear you speak. In the comics, the Scarlet Scarab is the defender of Egypt and those whose powers are manifested in the Ruby Scarab, an ancient artifact that endows its owner with god-like powers. Scarlet Scarab’s abilities include superhuman strength, the ability to fly at speeds of about 400 miles per hour (miles per hour) and launch terrible explosions of mystical energy.
The version of the Scarlet Scarab in the MCU is slightly different from its comic book counterpart. In Moon Knight Layla possesses superhuman strength and endurance, but she also possesses double swords and can use the built-in metal wings of her costume to attack her enemies and repel enemy fire. She also doesn’t need a Ruby Scarab to gain these abilities, as Taveret gives them to Leila on the show. The Tavert does not play a major role in comics, so Marvel Studios has clearly reshaped Ruby Scarab and Tavert to give the duo more prominent arcs in the live action series.
Interestingly, the version of Leila’s father’s comic book, called Abdul Fowl, is the original Scarlet Scarab. Signs that Leila would eventually get her own superpower were all the time. And, given that the girl (whom Layla rescues in episode 6) asks Layla if she is an Egyptian superhero, it seems that the pseudonym Defender of Egypt is alive and well in the MCU. We hope to see her back in action as Scarlet Scarab.
Moon Knight, episode 6 after the captions, explains: Jake Lockley has finally revealed himself
Scarlet Scarlet Leila – not the only new character (or should it be an alter ego?), Which appeared in the 6th series of Moon Knight. tease his arrival for most of the showMarvel has finally unveiled its live depiction of Jake Lockley, Mark and another Stephen persona.
The scene after the titles of the sixth episode shows Arthur Harrow in a psychiatric hospital similar to the one where Mark / Stephen was admitted. However, this shelter is actually real. We know this because we see a mysterious figure approaching and taking Harrow (in a wheelchair) from a hospital to a limousine in the real world.
Here Harrow meets a rather chic Honshu. Harrow mocks Honshu for not killing him before, but Honshu laughs last. “Mark Spector really believed that after we broke up, I wanted his wife to be my avatar,” says Honshu. “Why should I have someone else if he has no idea how restless he really is?”
The darkened partition of the limousine subsides when Honshu finishes talking, and who do we see? Jake Lockley, the third (and tougher) alternative to Mark and Stephen. Jake, who is a Latin American (not a New Yorker as he appears in the comics) on the show, tells Harrow, “It’s your turn to play today,” and shoots him four times with a silencer pistol. Jake starts the limousine and leaves with Honshu (and Harrow’s dead body) inside.
Interestingly, the limousine’s license plate reads “SKPTR” – that is, a clear reference to the name of Mark. Meanwhile, the limousine is a nod to Stephen’s comic book version. In Marvel’s source material, Stephen is a millionaire disguised as Mr. Knight, and this superpowered alter ego uses a modified limousine for travel.
Like the changes made to the Layla / Scarlet Scarab, it seems Marvel Studios has reconstructed Jake’s background, personality and means of transportation for the MCU. It remains to be seen whether Jake will have a suit – that is, when the Lunar Knight returns in the second season at Disney Plus or in Marvel movie.
The comics have a number of Moon Knight costumes, such as his Avengers from the West Coast or all-black Ultimate costumes that can be used to separate Jake from Moon Knight / Mr Knight. We will have to wait and see on this front. And speaking of the future of Moon Knight …
The end of the 6th series Moon Knight explained: will there be a second season?
It is now unclear. Unlike The finale of Season 1 Lokiwhich confirmed that the cunning god gets the second season of his Disney Plus series in sting after credits, Moon Knight doesn’t. Obviously, Marvel is opening up its capabilities on this front.
Moon Knight simultaneously tells an independent story and leaves enough room for Oscar Isaac to return to MCU when he (and the show’s creative team) feel like there’s a new interesting story to tell. While some of his fellow MCU actors are tied to several Marvel projects, Isaac didn’t – he only signed one season (by Variety) before starring in the MCU series. Thus, there is no guarantee that Isaac will repeat his role (should there be roles?) In the future.
miracle would seem to imply that Moon Knight will return but when episode 6 ends without the slogan “The Knight of the Moon will return”, the fate of the character in the MCU is still in the air.
We would definitely like to see Season 2 of Moon Knight. We really want to see how Mark, Stephen and Jake will collaborate / argue when they intersect, and as shown by the TV show Moon Knight, Marvel can tell individual tales (virtually no relationship) at MCU. So Marvel wouldn’t need to tie Moon Knight to any of its other projects if the studio wanted to bring back Isaac and company for the next release, which what we would like to see in future MCU projects. Crossing our fingers, we will find out soon.
