Confused by Watchmen's Postcredits Scene? Here's What It All Means
As Watchmen enters its final act, many of us are still wondering what role Adrian Veidt will play in the main storyline, but episode eight's postcredits scene gets us closer to an answer. If you missed it, here's what happens.
After being declared guilty of trying to escape "paradise" by Dr. Manhattan's creations, Veidt's punishment is being smeared with tomatoes by multiple versions of Mr. Phillips and Mrs. Crookshanks while they ask him "Will you stay, Master?" His answer? "No." Then, we see him in a cell, reading a book as the Gamekeeper enters with a birthday cake. They discuss his book and the Gamekeeper's past (he was the Adam of Manhattan's paradise). Veidt, of course, dismisses Manhattan's "Heaven" and expresses his wish to go back to Earth. Once the Gamekeeper leaves, Veidt looks at the cake and notices a horseshoe was placed inside it. Laughing maniacally, he uses it to dig the ground of the cell.
