What was interesting to me was that the cloned manservants and maids evidently aren't a Veidt creation, but part of the design of his palatial prison. So apparently plucking fetuses out of lobster cages, drowning the ones that don't meet expectations, and then cooking the good ones in an easy bake oven is part of the design of this place. As opposed to the tomato trees, which evidently are a Veidt creation. Was the transition from the circle of sky through Veidt's spyglass to the moon over Tulsa just a stylized transition, or was it implying that Veidt's prison is on the moon? Much like the original comic, I'm guessing that pieces will click into place along the way but it won't all become clear until the end. I'm happy that Lindelof has said that this is a nine-episode close-ended story. Lady Trieu feels more like a Lindelof creation than an Alan Moore creation. The name is interesting, because there is a Lady Triệu in Vietnamese folk history from the third century who Wikipedia quotes as having said "I'd like to ride storms, kill sharks in the open sea, drive out the aggressors, reconquer the country, undo the ties of serfdom, and never bend my back to be the concubine of whatever man." Based on her treatment of Agent Petey, she seems to hold true to the last tenet. Does she accept Vietnam's place as a state within the American union? Or does she view the United States as an aggressor who has entrapped her country in the ties of serfdom? If the latter, is she trying to reconquer her country by driving out the United States through some conspiracy from within? I found the holographic tree, as a means of connecting the descendants of victims of racial violence to the past that was stolen from them, oddly moving. The general consensus seems to be the overlong Redford administration is just a different flavor of dystopia from the overlong Nixon administration. But that particular facet seems like a wonderful thing. Other questions: What was in the IV that Lady Trieu's daughter was connected to while she slept? Are her nightmares really just Lady Trieu's memories? I thought at first that Bian was Trieu's clone rather than her daughter. But the actress playing Bian appears to be biracial, while Hong Chau is definitely not. What are the pills that Will Reeves left in Angela's glove box? Are they what made him strong enough to hang Judd from that treat? Are they the reason he's still going strong at 105? The lubricated man is definitely Agent Petey, right?
