Shortly after the series premiere of Watchmen Sunday, HBO released a synopsis of the show's second episode, entitled "Martial Feats of Comanche Horsemanship."
The synopsis describes the episode as follows: "As Angela relives haunting memories of an attack on her family, she detains a mysterious man (Lou Gossett Jr.) who claims responsibility for Tulsa's most recent murder. Elsewhere, an original play is performed for an audience of one."
The synopsis references Angela Abar, who plays the new mysterious hero Sister Night in the series. In the pilot episode, Angela had received a threatening phone call from the white supremacist group The Seventh Cavalry.
Upon agreeing to meet, Angela comes across the hanged body of Sheriff Judd Crawford in the pilot's shocking climax. Next to Crawford's body sits an elderly man, played by Gossett. Gossett's character had forebodingly asked Angela earlier in the episode if she thought he could lift 200 pounds.
The original play mentioned could be that of Oklahoma, also referenced in the series pilot.
The episode is written by Damon Lindelof and Nick Cuse, and directed by Nicole Kassell.
