Is the Old Man in Watchmen the Little Boy in the Race Riots?

Published

on


The new HBO action-drama Watchmen sets up several mysteries in the premiere episode, not the least of which is just who Louis Gossett Jr.’s character is in the world of these masked vigilantes. Warning: spoilers for the premiere ahead.

In the first episode of Watchmen, titled “It’s Summer and We’re Running Out of Ice,” the opening scene shows a dramatization of the real-life Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921, in which, historians believe, over 300 people were killed, mostly African-American citizens of Tulsa, OK. Among the chaos and death, a little boy manages to escape in a wagon with a couple that his parents know. His parents are then presumably blown up when an airplane drops a bomb on the warehouse they were last seen in.

Later on, when the wagon presumably crashes and the couple are killed, the little boy finds their baby alive nearby and picks her up — the baby seems to be dressed in girl clothes, though there is no confirmation of the baby’s sex. The only thing the little boy has with him is a note that reads, “Watch over this boy.”

We don’t yet know for whom the note was intended, but cut to the end of the episode and Gossett Jr.’s character has the note. Now, he never gives his name, but HBO’s press release about the cast lists him as “Will Reeves.” That may have been his original name or it may be the name he ended up with when he was taken in by whoever raised him.

It remains to be seen how exactly Will figures into the Watchmen universe, but he does seem to know about Angela’s (Regina King) double life. Earlier in the episode, he sits outside her “bakery” and asks her if she thinks he can lift 200 pounds. That seems fairly innocuous . . . until he later calls her to come find the body of the chief (Don Johnson), who has been lynched, hung from a tree out in the country.

Was Will possibly referring to lifting the chief? Why is he at the site of the body? And how did he even get to the middle of that field? He is in a wheelchair, after all. Also, during the phone call when Will tells Angela to come find the chief’s body, he tells her not to wear a mask, so he knows she’s one of the masked policemen running around. He also seems to know that her father was Marcus Abar. What connection does Will have to Angela?

For now we’ll have to wait and see until next week, when hopefully HBO will reveal how someone who is roughly 105 years old may have been involved in lynching the chief of Tulsa’s police force. In the meantime, we’ll be brushing up on all the Watchmen origin stories.

Eva Marcille Body Bounces Back After Baby – Hollywood Life

Published

By


‘RHOA’ star Eva Marcille is looking as fabulous as ever after welcoming her newest bundle of joy into the world just a few short weeks ago.

Eva Marcille, 35, has always looked fabulous when we see her on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta. This season captured the current mom of three fully pregnant with her son Maverick, 5 weeks, and now that he’s here, she can’t wait to get back in the gym after gaining the pregnancy pounds. “I think in the end it was like 40 something [pounds],” Eva told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY at the first annual BravoCon in New York City. “First day of BravoCon started my five weeks and it takes six weeks before you even go back to the doctor or workout or do anything. So I go see [Married To Medicine’s] Dr. Jackie [Walters], my doctor. Hopefully she clears me to workout.”

Delivering a baby isn’t easy for anyone, let alone when you have two other littles ones to look after. So it makes perfect sense as to why Eva knows how hard her body has been working and is proud to have gone through it all. “I mean, hey, it was a whole baby,” Eva joked about the weight she gained. “We are and however you do it, if it’s a C-section if is natural. I had an epidural for sure.”

There has already been so much drama when it comes to this season between Eva and co-star Kenya Moore, 48, and the season has only just begun. Though most of the filming for season 12 is wrapped, there is one very important filming date Eva has her sights on to debut her official post baby body look. “I think I’ll like really start concentrating on it like before my reunion,” Eva admitted. “So that I can slay with like a proper side-eye and snatchedness, yes.”

Kanye West has announced his first-ever opera, Nebuchadnezzar. West took to Twitter earlier today to post artwork of a golden program featuring an engraving of the titular Babylonian king. The opera is directed by Italian performance artist Vanessa Beecroft and will take place at the Hollywood Bowl on November 24. The event will also feature music by Kanye’s Sunday Service performers, Peter Colins, and Infinite Song. Tickets for the opera go on sale Monday (November 18). Find the Nebuchadnezzar artwork (designed by Nick Knight) below.

Last month, before the release of his most recent LP Jesus Is King, Kanye joined Zane Lowe for an interview on Apple Music’s Beats 1. During their chat, Kanye mentioned Nebuchadnezzar while speaking of his Yeezus tour. “[God] is saying, Let me take this Nebuchadnezzar-type character—Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon, and he looked at his entire kingdom and said, I did this,” West said, adding, “I stood on the top of the mountain talking about Yeezus, saying, ‘I’m a God’—I had a guy dressed as Jesus.”
