Excited to watch Moon Knight episode 5 online with Disney Plus because holy hell what was up with last week's ending? Well, we just did, and get ready for more surprises — and a huge reveal (that some may have seen coming) about Steven. 

Last week, Moon Knight brought us all to the Putnam Psychiatric Hospital for the biggest "WTF?" slash wink-wink moment in the series so far. Also, a bit of inside baseball: this will be the first Moon Knight episode that wasn't shown to critics (such as myself) already.

Moon Knight Disney Plus episode 5 date, time and more

Release date and time: Episode 5 is streaming on Disney Plus, having released today (Wednesday, April 27), at 3 a.m. ET.
Cast: Oscar Isaac, May Calamawy, Ethan Hawke
Directors: Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead
Rating: TV-14

And at Putnam, we got a big tease of "what if this show wasn't actually real?" Eagle-eyed audience members saw hints of Steven's life — that gilded street performer, his Rubik’s Cube, a cupcake, and the goldfish — as we were meant to wonder what was real and what was not. Of course, Spector figured out that this was in fact a con. 

And this is on top of the vibe that we're getting that another Marc Spector identity has been taking over. In the comics, he was Jake Lockley, and he had a penchant for finding information and kicking butt. 

But back in the last moments we saw before Putnam? Layla's now aware that Marc shot and killed her father, thanks to Harrow being a snitch. Harrow then shot Marc so bad it knocked him into a different (4:3) aspect ratio. 

Here's everything to know about how and when to watch Moon Knight episode 5 online. Also, check out this bonus-feature style explainer that you may need to clear things up about who exactly Marc Spector is. (And if you're just not feeling Moon Knight after all these episodes, at least you're not alone.)
