Spoilers for 'NOS4A2' Season 2 Episode 5 'Bruce Wayne McQueen'

In the mid-season episode, the intensity of the narrative definitely picks up a notch as we see Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto) and Bing Partridge (Ólafur Darri Ólafsson) try mercilessly to get their hands on Wayne McQueen (Jason David). In the earlier episodes, we saw Manx express interest in meeting someone named The Hourglass Man (Paul Schneider) and in this episode, we saw just how the Strong Creative's power works. Fans were shocked, impressed and nervous about the part The Hourglass man played in this episode. 

"Hourglass is a GREAT addition to this story! Holy shit! (Ps, never trust anyone in a white Escalade) #[email protected] @jami_obrien," wrote one fan with another adding, "The hourglass sure has a lot of power. #NOS4A2." The fans were definitely right as the start of the episode sees the Hourglass man stopped by FBI agents that are protecting the McQueen Family at the Lake House. The order was to not let anyone in, so Manx and his Wraith would not get to Wayne. The confidence poured through as the Strong Creative told the cops he wants to go to the lake house and kill everybody there.  The agents pull out guns but the Hourglass man puts a hand in the air and turns over his hourglass hypnotizing the cops. "Spare the child, the boy shouldn't be touched. You have your instructions, go," he said.

With that Manx now had gotten rid of the cops protecting the front of the house. "Oh snap that's the hourman right ....and he can manipulate people with his hourglass ugh oh they need to get out of that house. #[email protected]," said a fan. That, of course, didn't happen, considering the cops did what they were told. Of course, the feds immediately shoot Chris McQueen the minute he comes out of the home. The sand in the hourglass keeps going but Chris finally shoots the cop - thank god. After the sand from the hourglass drops - the other cop shoots himself.

Turns out that the power the Hourglass man has seems to be more impressive than Vic McQueen's (Ashleigh Cummings). "The Hourglass man's power has been revealed...and it is truly terrifying. I'm getting serious Kilgrave vibes from this guy. #NOS4A2 #RenewNOS4A2," wrote one fan. Either way he adds a lot to the narrative, and not to mention fans love the character. "If I was the Hourglass Man, I’d probably invest in a bigger Hourglass  so that my victims at least have enough time to get the job done  #NOS4A2," wrote another fan.
