Watchmen: What happened to Laurie Blake?

The questions on HBO’s latest offering keeps piling up. Fans clamoring for familiar faces from the comics are finally getting the show they wanted, but it isn’t happening the way they expected. Typical HBO.

Two characters from the comics make their official arrival in this week’s episode (s01e03) – Ozymandias, which we sort of all knew Jeremy Iron was playing, and Laurie Juspeczyk now better know as Special Agent Laurie Blake.

The sweet girl, rebellious daughter, fiery lover, and resilient vigilante is definitely gone. This Laurie is more a replica of her father, The Comedian, than whatever used to be good in her; which raises a question – what happened?

What broke Laurie and turned her into this dry comedienne? Was it her break up with Jon/ Dr. Manhattan or Dan/ Night Owl going to prison? We need answers, HBO, and we need them ASAP!

On the plus side, the tension between her and Angela Abar (Sister Night) is smoking. I want to see them interact more, especially after that explosive funeral.

What did you think of this episode? Did you like it as much as I did?
