It’s the conclusion of Sam Hamm’s Watchmen, and it’s worth noting that this is now SAM HAMM’S WATCHMEN, because the finale bears absolutely NO resemblance to Alan Moore’s Watchmen and is, in fact, completely incompatible with the world that Moore established.
This whole episode is a series of “wait, what?” moments for anyone with even a passing familiarity with Watchmen. Time bubbles, main characters vaporized, and a turn for the meta that feels like Hamm ran out of ideas but really needed to meet a deadline.
If you thought most of this script was a fairly boring and straightforward re-trace of the major points go Watchmen, then this is the part where all that is thrown out the window!
