The third episode of Watchmen, captured the best elements of the series' complex roots and aspirations, delivering a compelling character study and a vehement condemnation of self-indulgent idol worship, all while very much earning its last laugh.
They may not have shown us Laurie Blake right away, but they sure made her entrance this week worth the wait.
One of those show's greatest strengths is how they've been able to seamlessly connect this universe to the cinematic/graphic novel one.
Lindelof's mysteries continue to spiral forward, but at least we know we're in safe hands.
I thought Watchmen was going to be the Regina King show, but this episode gives us a taste of yet another brilliant Jean Smart performance...
While 'She Was Killed By Space Junk' hasn't moved the plot much further forward, it has given a better idea of the wider shape of the thing.
With her tough attitude and elaborate one-way calls to Mars, Jean Smart is extraordinarily fun to watch, but not quite as interesting to analyze. What you see is what you get.
With Laurie's arrival into this narrative it seems that Damon Lindelof's Watchmen is finally giving fans a semblance of the sequel they crave.
What's fascinating to watch is how Jean Smart's Laurie Blake wields her exacting, dry sense of humor like a lethal weapon that's designed to keep people off-balance and prone to telling on themselves.
"She Was Killed By Space Junk," is a downright genius episode that manages to bring an outsider's view onto the events of the first two episodes and give them a new perspective.
