- Will can walk! What is he up to?
- Is Lady Trieu aligned with Doctor Manhattan somehow? Will asks her how much longer until their plan comes to fruition, and she pauses for a second and says, “three days.” Doctor Manhattan obviously had a unique relationship with time, and she knew exactly when the thing was going to crash in the Clark’s backyard
- Any guesses as to what that thing was?
