WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for the seventh episode of Watchmen, "An Almost Religious Awe," which premiered Sunday on HBO.

The latest episode of HBO's Watchmen ended with a shocking revelation: Cal Abar, the caring husband of lead character Angela Abar, has actually been Doctor Manhattan all along -- he just didn't know about it. Somehow, Cal was his own person, complete with his own memories, but underneath the disguise lied the glowing blue Manhattan, who's just woken up.

Now, HBO has released a promo for Episode 8, which promises to deliver plenty of answers following that shocking cliffhanger.

The promo teases the first meeting between Angela and Doctor Manhattan, which takes place in Vietnam. While the character hides his face under a homemade mask of himself, his blue skin is a dead giveaway. There, he once again explains his own perception of time to the future Sister Night.

The promo doesn't stop there, however. As it warns that only two episodes remain, we see Angela go into a dangerous shootout with the Seventh Kavalry.

That said, if she has the all-powerful Doctor Manhattan on her side, then the battle may already be won.
