HBO's 'Watchmen' Season 1 keeps featuring eggs in several scenes and we'd really like to know why
Since the very first episode, we've seen eggs featured in a lot of scenes. Though there doesn't appear to be a clear pattern to the appearances, the fact that they keep happening over and over again makes us wonder if there's some hidden meaning here that we're all missing out on
HBO's 'Watchmen' has a lot of interesting easter eggs that make even the idlest scene instantly interesting. However, there's one question that even hardcore fans of the franchise are having trouble answering: what's with all the eggs?
Since the very first episode, we've seen eggs featured in a lot of scenes. Though there doesn't appear to be a clear pattern to the appearances, the fact that they keep happening over and over again makes us wonder if there's some hidden meaning here that we're all missing out on.
In Episode 4, the references hit their peak with eggs featured very obviously right at the beginning. Perhaps it could be tied to the whole theme of legacy that runs through the episode, if we are to look at eggs as a symbol for newly created life, something Hong Chau's Lady Trieu specializes in.
However, even this explanation doesn't fully explain the significance of these random appearances. Of course, maybe the eggs are just eggs and we're just getting paranoid but we would be justified considering how complex the show is.
Every line and every shot seems to be filled with references, easter eggs, and literal eggs so it is pretty hard to figure out what is important and what isn't.
Whatever the eggs are leading up to, we'll just have to wait and watch to find out. Though we're certainly going to be very confused while we do so.
