If you finished that season finale of Marvel’s Moon Knight, I bet you can hear these words ringing in your head. Who can forget that menacing and intense look in the eyes of Jake Lockley?
We are already passed the San Diego Comic-con 2022. However, there was no direct announcement of the second season of the fan-favorite marvel series, Moon Knight. But, the credit scene from the season finale pretty much confirmed that there would be a season 2.
The director, Mohammad Diab, and Oscar Issac sort of teased a return of Moon Knight in a TikTok video. We cannot wait to know more about the mysterious character of Jake Lockley. But, if you are one of those advanced marvel fans who love to stay updated, then this article might be worth the read.
Moon Knight Season Finale: Jake Lockley Appears
Season 1 of Moon Knight focuses on Marc Spector and Steven Grant. Oscar Issac put a magnificent display of his role-playing with two completely polar opposite alter egos of Moon Knight. The season goes on exploring the highs and lows of both moon knight personalities.
Defeated by Mook Knight, Ethan Hawke’s character Arthur Harrow goes to a mental asylum after his effort to bring back Ammit fails. A former avatar of the manipulating moon god Khonsu, Harrow was almost sure that Marc Spector wouldn’t kill him.
But, to his surprise, he finds himself in a limousine with Khonsu sitting in front of him. While Arthur is so confident about his safety, Khonsu pulls out his ace in the hole, Jake Lockley.
According to Khonsu’s promise, Khonsu is supposed to stay away from Layla (Marc’s wife) after Marc helps him stop Ammit. But Marc himself was unaware of his third personality, Jake Lockley.
While Steven Grant reasons right and wrong, Marc breaks away doing what needs to be done. But Marc still keeps to his morals and has a personal vendetta against Khonsu. He would only go to a certain level.
Jake Lockley is more practical and clearly displays his charisma in being the Fist of Khonshu. While Marc denies killing Harrow, Jake does it in his stead. But who is this third personality of Moon Knight?
Who Is Jake Lockley?
Jake Lockley is the third personality of Moon Knight, as shown in the Disney plus Marvel show Moon Knight. While we see Marc and Steven talking to themselves, they already had a third alter ego lurking inside Marc Spector. Jake Lockley, although dormant, makes his presence felt throughout the series and remains a mystery.
Marc has Dissociative identity disorder. As a result, we see all these different personalities in him. An American Jewish boy, Marc manifested a different personality when an ex-Nazi mercenary tried to get his hands on Marc.
In comics, Steven Grant is a billionaire financing Marc Spector in his Moon Knight crusade to protect travelers of the night. But Jake is another character inside Marc who is a cab driver in New York City. Jake wears a newsboy cap and has a serious look on his face.

So, Marc flees to Mexico and uses Jake as his incognito personality to hide from the villains.
Lockley And Khonsu Are On The Same Page?
