Moon Knight fans think they’ve worked out who killed Layla’s father

Moon Knight Episode 4 features the revelation that Marc Spector had something to do with the death of Layla’s father. Spoilers ahead.

In Episode 4, we learn that Layla’s father, Abdullah El-Faouly, was an archaeologist as she reflects fondly on how proud he would be to see her in the tomb of Alexander the Great. However, during a conversation with Arthur Harrow, the seed is planted that Marc may have been involved in his death at the hands of mercenaries.

Confronting her husband about it, Layla asks Marc outright if he killed her father. He denies his involvement, explaining: “I was there. My partner got greedy and executed everyone at the dig site. I tried to save your father, but I couldn’t save him. Marc also reveals that he was also shot by his mysterious partner and should have died that night.

Harrow interrupted them with his men before we could find out who exactly his partner was – but could a fan theory have solved it?

A new theory suggests that Marc’s partner could have been another of his personalities, Jake Lockley. The character, who has yet to be featured in the series, is a taxi driver known for his violent tendencies.

Fans think her appearance has already been teased. In episode 3, it was hinted that there was an alternate personality after Steven Grant and Marc had no memory of killing Harrow’s men. Also, in Episode 4, it looked like someone was trying to get out of the sarcophagus at Putnam Mental Hospital.

If Lockley is about to be introduced in the series, some believe that he may be the cause of El-Faouly’s death. Speculating on this, a Reddit user wrote, “I think Jake’s personality could have been the ‘partner’ that Marc alluded to who executed Layla’s dad and his crew. We already know that the 3rd personality is extremely violent from the brief scene in Episode 3.”

They continued: “When Marc says his partner shot him too, could he mean Jake shot himself in the back in an attempt to get rid of Marc or vice versa?” Another fan agreed, admitting that would explain why Marc was so keen on avoiding opening the other sarcophagus.

However, if the show goes this route, it will move away from the same storyline in the comics. In the Doug Moench and Bill Sienkiewicz run, this was another character entirely behind the murder of Layla’s father.

Who kills Layla’s father in the Moon Knight comics?

Layla is apparently a proxy for the comic book character Marlene, and the killer identity of Marlene’s father in the comics is a character called Raoul Bushman. Bushman is one of the main villains in the Moon Knight series and is a brutal mercenary who Marc works for. Marlene is the daughter of Dr. Peter Alraune. He was an archaeologist working at a dig site that Bushman and his men decided to rob in hopes of finding gold.

Marc was working for the crime lord on the mission at the time and saved Bushman’s life after Alraune tried to stab him. In retaliation, Bushman brutally murdered Alraune before Marc’s eyes.

It’s unclear if Bushman will be introduced in the Disney Plus series after head writer and executive producer Jeremy Slater spoke about his absence. He was asked by a fan on Twitter about the decision to make Arthur Harrow’s character the Disney Plus show’s main villain.

Justifying this, he said: “Because its only recognizable villain was Bushman, who just felt too close to Erik Killmonger from Black Panther. So we decided to invent a villain instead. Ethan Hawke in particular was instrumental in creating of Harrow.

We’ll just have to wait and see what reveals come when Moon Knight returns for Episode 5. Check out our Moon Knight release schedule guide as well as the best shows on Disney Plus right now. If you haven’t already, subscribe to Disney Plus now.
