Watchmen Special: Breaking Down “A God Walks into Abar”

EA God Walks into Abar” is the deeply heartfelt episode we’ve been waiting for! The wonderfully pun-titled penultimate episode—directed by Nicole Kassell, written by Damon Lindelof and Jeff Jensen— is a powerful love story that spans many years, and told in a disjointed fashion to explain just how the most powerful man in the world ended up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, married to Angel Abar and with his memory wiped out. It’s an amazing hour of television—able to carefully turn a seemingly indecipherable character, into somethingbeautifully textured, human, and meaningful— and we have plenty to say about it. OurWatchmenpodcastwill seeSimon Howelland an assortment of guests tackle the entire series (or at least the first season).
