M.K.’s dark power has always been a total mystery to him. That is, until he’s taken to the Abbot Monastery where he meets other Novices just like him.
In Season 2, Episode 2 “Force of Eagle’s Claw,” the Master takes M.K. on as a pupil and shows him to the Mirror Room where M.K. faces memories from his own haunting past. “Part of controlling M.K.’s darkness is to find the source,” explains executive producer Alfred Gough in a new behind-the-scenes video. “It’s almost like very violent psychotherapy. ”
Though he’s gotten a taste of what this journey of self-discovery will entail, M.K. still has a lot to learn before he’s ever ready to control his gift and leave the Monastery. “Your self is just as much of an enemy as your enemy,” Aramis Knight says. “That’s what the Master’s trying to teach him.”
