Did Jake Lockley Already Debut in ‘Moon Knight’ Episode 5?
There has been a lot made about the potential impending appearance of a third personality in Marvel’s newest series, but a new theory asks the question; did Jake Lockley already debut in Moon Knight episode 5
We have been firm in our opinion that the MCUs latest series is some of the best work that the studio has ever crafted; alongside a Phase Four that is among the most emotionally resonant projects in the decade-plus history of the MCU.
It is among the most narratively complex, and intriguing, stories to be told by Marvel, and partners with tremendous performances to bring forth a series that is unlike anything that we’ve seen.
The directing, the writing, and the overall journey that this series takes its viewers on is not for the faint of heart but provides emotionally complex and traumatic circumstance into the world of superheroes and villains that makes the entire Marvel Universe feel more attainable and grounded.
This all would be a much lesser experience without the amazing performance of Oscar Isaac who is giving the performance of a lifetime in crafting two very different, but interconnected, beings that interact against one another to craft a dynamic as good as any Marvel has put together.
It is this fantastic performance that has led us to ponder the curious case of the series’ eponymous characters’ third personality; as we may have reason to believe that Isaac’s phenomenal Performace has hidden the fact that Jake Lockley has already debuted in Moon Knight episode 5.
In a theory that has been making the rounds, many wires are questioning one scene in particular, the very beginning of the episode that sees a character we think is Marc Spector being confronted by Dr. Harrow.
The interaction is preceded by a violently bleeding Spector, who is noticeably shaken by their encounter; the only thing is, this doesn’t sound like Spector, and it doesn’t act like Spector, so who could it be?
Lockley, in the source material, is a street-smart cab driver who is Spector and Grant’s most normal personality; and we think that the thick New York or Chicago accent that Isaac used in this scene could speak to that personalities presence.
This connected to the fact that Lockley tries to drive a glass pyramid into his own eye, and the bloodied nose, leads us to the conclusion that Lockley is the most emotionally damaged and unhinged version of Spector, and this appearance is the precursor to an eventual debut in the series finale.
