Prepare for the reckoning in Watchmen episode 4 promo
HBO has released the first promo for Watchmen‘s upcoming episode four titled “If You Don’t Like My Story, Write Your Own” featuring the arrival of Golden Globe nominee Hong Chau’s mysterious character Lady Trieu while Angela and Looking Glass prepare for the reckoning. The episode is scheduled to air on November 10. Check out the video in the player below!
Directed by Andrij Parekh from a script co-written by Damon Lindelof and Christal Henry, the new episode’s official synopsis reads: “Reclusive trillionaire Lady Trieu (Hong Chau) finally enters the stage with a mysterious offer. With Blake (Jean Smart) getting closer to the truth of her coverup, Angela (Regina King) enlists Looking Glass (Tim Blake Nelson) for help. Meanwhile, The Lord (Jeremy Irons) trains two new servants.”
Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own. Originally published as a 12-issue miniseries beginning in 1986, Watchmen quickly become one of sequential art’s most acclaimed stories. The original story centers on a murder-mystery before unfolding into a planet-altering conspiracy that ultimately asks where the fine line is drawn between heroes and villains.

Lindelof serves as creator, writer, showrunner, and executive producer on the Watchmen series, with Tom Spezialy, Stephen Williams, and Joseph Iberti also executive producing. Nicole Kassell will executive produce and direct the pilot. The series comes from Lindelof’s White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television and is based on the DC Comics characters.
