WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for the seventh episode of Watchmen, "An Almost Religious Awe," which premiered Sunday on HBO.
In the most recent episode of HBO's Watchmen, it was revealed that Angela Abar's husband Cal was actually Doctor Manhattan. Now, the series has just two episodes left to wrap things up following this massive bombshell, but according to showrunner Damon Lindelof, fans shouldn't be worried about the story sticking the landing.
"Considering episode seven's ending, it would appear we have some explaining to do," Lindelof told THR. "I'm answering these questions before it airs, but if I were watching the show, I'd be starting to panic that we can't possibly bring this all together in just two more episodes. So, uh…don't panic?"
In October, just before the series premiere, Lindelof made it clear that Watchmen was a nine-episode, single-season story. That said, it's easy to see how some fans would feel the show needs to fit a lot into the next two episodes to make good on Lindelof's newest promise.
Developed by Damon Lindelof, HBO's Watchmen stars Jeremy Irons, Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Jean Smart, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tom Mison, James Wolk, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Lily Rose Smith and Adelynn Spoon. The series airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
