The last episode of Oscar Isaac's "Moon Knight" premiered on Disney+ on May 4, 2022, and although it resolved the main narrative, its post-credit scene left several unanswered questions.
Warning: Spoilers alert for "Moon Knight" episodes 5 and 6.
"Moon Knight" episode 5 wrapped up with Oscar Isaac's character, Marc Spector, reaching the Field of Reeds, the Egyptian version of heaven.
After getting help from May Calamawy's Layla, Marc and his alter-ego Steven Grant go back to life and beat Ethan Hawke's, Arthur Harrow. When everyone thought their story was over, episode 6's post-credit scene introduced Marc's third alter.

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE "MOON KNIGHT" POST-CREDITS SCENE?
Episode 6 ends with Marc sparing Harrow's life despite Khonshu's demands. Marc and Steven also make a deal with Khonshu to be set free from his clutches, and the Egyptian god of the moon agrees.
However, the post-credit scene proves that Harrow runs out of luck and that Khonshu is not over with Oscar Isaac's character.

Harrow appears in a mental facility similar to the one Marc and Steven spent most of episode five. A man dressed in black then takes him to a white limousine.
Once Harrow is in the vehicle, he sees Khonshu, introducing him to Jake Lockley. Jake, also played by Oscar Isaac, kills Harrow and fulfills Khonshu's goal: defeat the Egyptian goddess Ammit (living inside Harrow).
WHO IS JACK LOCKLEY?
Neither Marc nor Steven knew about Jake, their third alter-ego. However, Khonshu was always aware of his existence, meaning the Egyptian god was never worried about losing Marc and Steven as his avatar because he could still exploit Jake.
Jake Lockley's inclusion got people wondering if a "Moon Knight" season 2 is part of the [MCU] plans.
Although we never saw Jake on screen, "Moon Knight" hinted at Marc's most dangerous alter a few times throughout the show, including that third sarcophagus in episode five and all the times Marc and Steven blacked out and didn't remember what had happened.
The show's director Mohamed Diab revealed that everything we saw resulted from a trial and error. He also realized he couldn't introduce Jake earlier for the story's sake. Diab said:
"If we would have introduced him in the show without really giving him the time to develop and be a full character like Mark and Steven, it wouldn't have been fair to him."
Jake Lockley's inclusion got people wondering if a "Moon Knight" season 2 is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's plans, and the official Marvel Twitter account may have leaked the answer.
They described episode 6 as the "series" finale. Minutes later, they deleted that tweet and replaced it with one that read "season" finale instead.
"MOON KNIGHT" DIRECTOR MOHAMED DIAB'S THOUGHTS
Since "Moon Knight" plays with the idea that some (or all) things happen in Marc's head, Diab said they included so many hints and clues that people should watch the series more than once to get them all.
Mohamed Diab also confessed he would love to work with Marvel Studios again, and if the MCU's mastermind Kevin Feige decides "Moon Knight" should have another season, Diab hopes he could be part of it to give Jake Lockley his time to shine.
