Watchmen’s fourth episode has launched the character of Lady Trieu, and it is clear from her very first scene that she’s a girl with a plan and a comet. In an obvious homage to Superman’s origin story, the episode opens with the Clarks, a childless couple residing in a quiet farm. Their life appears comparatively pleased, if uneventful, till Lady Trieu knocks on their door and declares her intention of shopping for their dwelling. She’s so decided to get the farm, she affords them a child that she’s made with their very own DNA.
The Clarks barely have the time to grasp this when every thing begins to shake. After signing the papers to promote the farm, they rush out of the home. A blue comet crosses the sky and lands on the propriety. Smiling, Trieu declares the comet to be hers.
However why does Trieu need this comet so badly?
To date, the mysterious trillionaire is linked to 2 issues: time and Dr. Manhattan. She’s constructing a large “clock” close to Tulsa, is aware of precisely how lengthy she has to shut the cope with the Clarks till the comet falls, and in addition occurs to be the proprietor of the cubicles that join individuals to Dr. Manhattan.
