No im pretty sure that's his, he's supposed to be this Watchmen's Comedian in terms of inciting-death-plot-device and moraly complex personality to be mourned, etc.

Question: So is there gonna be blue dong in an episode or what?

Lindelof: If there’s not a blue dong by episode 2, I’m clearly not qualified to do this job.
This was such a cheat lol. I thought Manhattan is going to show up by episode 2 :problem:

Digging it, but the Jeremy Irons scenes are little weird right now through two episodes. If you have no familiarity with prior Watchmen stuff, it seems like something from a totally different show and really disconnect from the main narrative focusing on Regina King and the Seventh Kavalry

Lindelof, miss a bulls-eye just once. The pacing, the focus, the richness, the confidence. This show is next level. Jean Smart rules.

I agree with many critics that this is the first episode to really give you the experience of the comic, specifically in how the comic would have these ultra-focused chapters that criss-crossed with other chapters and POVs, which obv Lindelof perfected with Leftovers and LOST.

That was a near perfect episode

Didn't like this episode as much as the previous two, a little bit too much exposition regarding events that we already knew about.

But Jean Smart rules, is a correct statement.

Best one so far and will be a very hard one to ever top rhythm/pacing wise
