Get ready to dive into the enigmatic persona of Jake Lockley as we unravel the secrets behind Moon Knight’s intriguing third alter.
The recent conclusion of “Moon Knight” on Disney Plus left fans intrigued and captivated by its dense and thought-provoking narrative.
The show skillfully delved into the mind of the main character, Marc Spector, portrayed masterfully by Oscar Isaac, who suffers from dissociative identity disorder (DID).
Amidst the exploration of Marc’s mental landscape, an intriguing mystery unfolded in episode 3 when Marc and Steven, two alters within Marc, revealed a period of loss of control. This revelation hinted at the existence of a highly anticipated third alter, Jake Lockley.
In the final moments of the season, it was revealed that a third alter had emerged, working alongside Khonshu, without Marc or Steven’s knowledge.
This revelation validated fans’ anticipation for Jake Lockley’s arrival since the first episode. It also provided answers to the question of who else inhabits Marc’s mind.
The Possibility of Exploring Jake Lockley’s Origin
Given the meticulous exploration of Marc and Steven’s development in the series, it begs the question: will the origin story of Jake Lockley be explained if “Moon Knight” returns for another season or appears elsewhere?
The show has already showed the trauma that led to Steven’s manifestation, stemming from the loss of his brother and the abuse inflicted by his mother.
With this in mind, it is plausible to assume that Jake’s existence is also a response to a significant trauma.
From the limited glimpses of Jake in the post-credit scene and the moments when Marc and Steven lost control, it becomes evident that Jake possesses a brutal nature. He displayed a willingness to kill and enjoyed inflicting harm on others.
If the personality of an alter reflects the events that brought them into existence, one can only imagine the terrible circumstances that led to the emergence of Jake Lockley.
Interestingly, the episode that showcased Steven’s birth also hinted at a potential origin for Jake.
Beyond the death of Marc’s brother and his troubled relationship with his mother, another significant event in Marc’s life was a near-death experience in the desert.
Marc faced a life-threatening encounter with his ex-partner, Bushman, and was subsequently given a purpose by Khonshu. However, the details surrounding this event become blurry and mysterious.
It is worth considering that the stress, anxiety, and fear Marc experienced during the near-death experience may have further fractured his mind, leading to the emergence of Jake. Khonshu, recognizing the unknown alter, manipulated Marc’s mind to keep Jake hidden from his conscious awareness.
The Future of Moon Knight
The conclusion of the series left Marc and Steven no longer embodying the role of Moon Knight, with Jake Lockley and Khonshu taking control in opposition to their desires.
Moving forward, the show will need to address this conflict head-on, exploring the idea of an alter acting against Marc and Steven’s wishes.
It presents an opportune moment to delve into Jake’s past and uncover the events that shaped his existence, utilizing the groundwork already laid in the previous season.
As for the show’s potential trajectory, the inclusion of Bushman seems inevitable. Placing Bushman in a pivotal role involved in the creation of the third alter would add depth to the storyline and offer intriguing conflicts to explore.
It would build upon the events of the previous season while introducing new complexities and challenges. Fans eagerly anticipate the continuation of “Moon Knight” and the further exploration of its fascinating characters and narratives.
In conclusion, “Moon Knight” has left audiences enthralled with its exploration of Marc Spector’s mind and the revelation of the third alter, Jake Lockley.
As fans eagerly await the show’s future, there is a desire to uncover Jake’s origin story and witness the conflicts that arise as he and Khonshu take charge.
With the groundwork already established, there is immense potential to delve deeper into the complexities of Marc’s psyche and the mysteries surrounding his alters.
