Advertisements Lots of interesting stuff in this episode. But a lot of it hinges on knowing at least some of the backstory from the graphic novel. As with previous threads, spoilers about the graphic novel and movie are fair game. - Laurie Blake was Silk Spectre in the graphic novel. She once dated Dr. Manhattan and then later dated Dan Drieberg (Nite Owl). So apparently at some point after the end of the book, she stopped working as a masked vigilante and now works for the FBI on the anti-vigilante task force. When Senator Keene talked to her and said he needed her help investigating what's going on in Tulsa, he said that if he could get elected President, he could let her owl out of its cage, a reference to him being able to pardon Nite Owl. But if the Tulsa stuff goes badly, his shot at being POTUS is ruined and Nite Owl stays in jail. - The "joke" she told throughout the episode clearly referenced three of the main male characters from the book. The first one who got judged was Nite Owl (Drieberg), the second was Ozymandias (Adrian Veidt), and the third was Dr. Manhattan. - Adrian Veidt clearly identified himself so even though we previously suspected that's who that character was, it wasn't confirmed until now. We still don't know what is going on with him, but it seems that he's in some kind of captivity, something he agreed to, and he seems to be doing experiments (using his clones as expendable crash-test dummies) to find a way out. - Wow! So Laurie carries that "reminder" of Dr. Manhattan with her, even on road trips. But apparently even that wasn't enough, as she decided to show up at the door of her colleague, Petey. - The additional material on HBO's website is called the "Peteypedia" and now we know who it is named after and presumably who has been compiling that information. Where did the car at the end come from? We know it was Angela's car that got lifted away at the end of last episode, but there didn't appear to be anything in the sky that could have dropped it. Very strange. Laurie Blake admitted they were going to exhume Judd's body to do a toxicology screen. I wonder what she thinks that would show? Either way, there's no way to test him now, because he's in about a million pieces all over the cemetery.
