Man, it’s good to have a finale that actually feels like a finale, you know what I mean?
Once in a while, an episode of TV comes along that just punches me in the throat, and then I have to find ways to write about it that aren’t just “buh. Guh? Hurgh”. The last one that did this for me was American Crime Story’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, but this week’s episode of Watchmen, This Extraordinary Being, might just be coming for that crown.
Hong Chau, and her delightfully unsettling trillionaire Lady Trieu, is at the centre of this episode of Watchmen. And, for an episode titled If You Don’t Like My Story, Write Your Own, what a gift her introduction has been.
Loss comes with a responsibility – and a legacy.
Context, in Damon Lindelof’s new version of Watchmen, is everything.
