BARE BONES (Written by Rey & Rebecca):
In a first, it’s Moon Knight – not Mr. Knight – who sits down with Dr Sterman for a therapy session. Moon Knight recounts his recent confrontation with the escaped Rutherford Winner who visited the Midnight Mission, gun in hand.
Recalling the event to Dr. Sterman, Moon Knight tells of how Winner said he wanted to reclaim his doctor – Dr. Sterman herself. Moon Knight and Winner fight it out, Moon Knight unwilling to relinquish the good doctor to a dangerous man.
Back to the therapy session, Dr. Sterman is adamant that Winner is a lost cause…a wild dog that can’t be saved, but only contained.
Sterman goes on to assess Moon Knight and talks about the parallels and differences between him and Winner. Though both have had trauma inflicted on them by others (Hydra for Winner, Khonshu for Spector), Sterman sees Moon Knight as being his own saboteur, when it comes to reaching his potential. She questions his allegiance to Khonshu, and ponders whether Moon Knight should unshackle himself from his overbearing guilt.
Moon Knight in turn questions Dr. Sterman, but remains focused and intent on telling his whole story. It turns out that Winner – like Spector – just wants to get better. Sterman’s insistence that Winner can’t be saved, helps Moon Knight calls out her deception.
To Sterman’s surprise, Moon Knight threatens her and tells her to reveal her true self. And after calling out his name, the Waxman reveals himself…he took Dr Sterman’s place at the behest of Zodiac who told him to break Moon Knight. Waxman decides it all a waste and he and Moon Knight start to fight.
With the help of some liquid nitrogen, Waxman is contained and ultimately constrained within a seamless steel sphere created by the living Midnight Mission. .
Under threat of being encased in concrete, Waxman gives up Dr Sterman’s whereabouts – however, Moon Knight pours the concrete into the sphere anyway, much to the surprise of his congregation – Tigra, Soldier and Winner. Without Reese there to influence him, Moon Knight then sets off to find Zodiac and promises there will be blood.
