With the big surprise at the end of last episode, there are a lot of questions. So even though there’s only one more episode to go, they take most of this one to explain some backstory among several of the major characters.
Laurie Blake, the second Silk Spectre, has gone through a lot of changes since the events of the Watchmen graphic novel (or movie if you prefer). She’s the central figure of this episode, played by Jean Smart. Smart was recently seen in Fox’s incredibly odd Legion show, so she joins the ever-growing list of actors who have played characters for both Marvel and DC.
