BARE BONES (Written by Rey):
In two parallel threads, Marc is both in therapy with Dr Sterman, trying to uncover the core of his unhappiness, as well as on the hunt for a lead that Terry brings to him. Terry tells Marc that it’s Soldier who is the villain taunting him and takes him to an apartment across the street where Moon Knight discovers surveillance equipment and a photo of Soldier in his former days as a Hydra soldier.
The sessions with Dr Sterman in the recent past reveal that Marc hasn’t been totally honest with the doctor, and she probes him to look deeper within himself to discover what it is that makes him unhappy.
Marc reveals the relationship with his father, as well as the path he chose that has ultimately led to an ostracisation of his family and friends.
Back in the present, Moon Knight decides to investigate further and drops in to see Soldier’s mother at her apartment, where they have a cordial conversation.
This soon leads Moon Knight to the whereabouts of Soldier, who is found chained to a radiator with a bomb set to explode. The mystery villain taunts Moon Knight and tries to force him to choose - either leave Soldier to die, or try and free him and have both of them perish in the bomb blast.
Despite Soldier’s protestations, Moon Knight perseveres and manages to free Soldier and himself just before the bomb destroys everything.
In the rubble, Moon Knight is met face to face with the villain who has been taunting him for so long - it’s Zodiac!
