When the critics watched the first four episodes of Moon Knight the consensus was that episodes 1 and 4 were the best, with Episode 4 being the best of the series so far. And that actually makes a lot of sense considering the narrative structures of these Disney+ series.
WandaVision‘s fifth episode was absolutely outstanding with Wanda showing us more of her villainous side, Vision beginning to break free of her control, and that jaw-dropping plot twist of Evan Peters’ Quicksilver arriving to pretend to be her brother. It was undoubtedly the most surprising episode in the series and also my second favorite episode just behind the saddening penultimate episode.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s fourth episode was stellar. From involving a fight scene featuring the Dora Milaje to that gobsmacking ending where John Walker took a man’s head off with the Captain America shield. It was, without a doubt, the best episode in the series.
Loki‘s fourth episode didn’t go for the action-packed route but it was just as riveting. Loki and Sylvie’s relationship began to take a surprisingly romantic turn, they got captured by the TVA, Mobius got pruned, we discovered the Time Keepers were actually robots, Loki got pruned (that part still hurts a little), and we got a post-credits scene revealing multiple Loki variants. Talk about a shocking episode.
What If…?‘s fourth episode was the one featuring Doctor Strange turning to the dark side in order to bring Christine back from the dead. That episode was so good!
And even Hawkeye‘s fourth episode was one of the best ones in the series with Hawkeye opening up about losing Natasha to Kate Bishop as well as delivering that fantastic conclusion with Yelena Belova.
As you can see, with each of these shows, the second acts have some really great episodes, and considering the odds, tomorrow’s episode of Moon Knight is going to be a doozy. At least…I hope. And what that could potentially mean for this riveting series, I can’t wait to find out.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
