Watchmen seamlessly begins to tie up loose ends, but Regina King and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II's exceptional performances make "A God Walks Into a Bar" a surprisingly beautiful and profoundly tragic love story.
"A God Walks Into Abar" delivers a magnificent, heart-wrenching story that's far more magical than any superpower. It's what some may call a thermodynamic miracle.
In a little over an hour, Jensen and Lindelof take the audience through an intense emotional journey of a decade-long relationship. Once again, time takes center stage as a device.
"A God Walked into Abar" handles Angela and Jon's love story incredibly well.
Watching a black man about to be killed by white supremacists tell his love that she can't save him because it's already happened is heartbreaking and revelatory on a whole other level.
"A God Walks Into Abar" is essentially a love story. It's an ingeniously structured penultimate episode, brimming with genuine feeling while also setting up a tense finale.
Using the meet-weird between Dr. Manhattan and Abar as the structural anchor for the episode provides for a fine union of form and content.
The episode ends with quite an emotional stinger. Also, do not forget that post-credit scene which sets up next week's finale.
An expertly crafted piece of television that positions us in past and present simultaneously, while exploring what makes Dr. Manhattan human. A story of doomed romance, of sacrifice, and of what it feels like to remember falling in love.
Yep, this episode is Damon Lindelof and company at their most swing-for-the-fences ambitious.
Watchmen raises the stakes by giving us a fascinating glimpse into how Doctor Manhattan perceives reality itself.
As much as Watchmen is deconstructing the superhero genre, it's still coming down to good guys versus bad guys, though with this particular tale, the bad guys winning would not be shocking.
It's the continuation of a conversation that creator Damon Lindelof has been having with his audience about time, love, and the connection between them for more than a decade.
