Is Shadow Moon Secretly Khonsu?

Have a Theory? Share It Now!

I discovered you guys with Westworld. You were my favorite Westworld podcast. This is my first time writing in.

Point to note: I haven’t read the book and I have been trying not to be spoiled by book knowledge. So I have no idea if my theory is correct. If any of your hosts have read the book, please don’t confirm or deny. I just want to put this out there and see what other show only watchers think.

In the scene where “I love Lucy” talks to Shadow, she says that she’s impressed with how he handled Technical Boy. Said it was straightforward and effective and that Tech Boy underestimated him.

This leads me to believe that Shadow destroyed the goons himself without knowing it. I’m getting a growing feeling that Shadow Moon is himself a god but doesn’t know it.

So I did some research and found out about an Egyptian Moon God called Khonsu. There’s even a part of Khonsu’s mythology that involves playing a game of checkers against another Egyptian god.

Also, I vaguely remember Wednesday talking to Shadow about being forgotten and said, “Noone will forget you”. Seems like the gods know more about Shadow than he does. If gods are clamoring for him, he must be something more than just a man.

Yours is one of the few podcasts about this show that doesn’t leak book spoilers. Please keep that up. It’s been really annoying having to rip my headphones off because of spoilers in other podcasts.

    I believe you are right I came to the same conclusions lately as my research lead me to find out that Khonsu is also the traveler god and a protector of the travelers. It’s no wonder Odin hired him.
