Who is in the grave in the fourth episode of “Moon Knight”?

In the screenplay written by Alex Meenehan, Peter Cameron and Sabir Pirzada, there are several surprising deviations; even one capable of blowing our heads off because it manipulates our notion of reality about what’s going on. But the first real relevance that occurs is related to the egyptian tomb that Ethan Hawke’s dangerous Arthur Harrow and his band, on the one hand, and Steven Grant and May Calamawy’s Layla El-Faouly, on the other, are desperately seeking.

Some try to resurrect the goddess Ammit so that she releases her horrible power of justice throughout Minority report (2002) and the pair with the protagonist of moon knight, prevent it. The key to it is in said burial chamber, and these characters descend into it, putting their lives in danger.
