Who Is Lube Man? Damon Lindelof Hints At Who The Mysterious Watchmen Character Is

With the first open ended season of Watchmen coming to an conclusion and no second season on the horizon, Damon Lindelof recently gave some hints at who the mysterious Lube Man might be. Lube Man was only seen briefly in one single episode and was never seen or heard from again. When speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Lindelof hinted at who the character might be. Considering today's news that the show might already be over, this is an interesting little tidbit of info that adds to the luster of the excellent event series. Here's what he had to say:

"I'm so excited that you did ask. I would say Lube Man is one of those things that delighted us to no end in the writers’ room even though it was going to be just five minutes in the show. We talked a lot about who he was and where he came from and why he was dressed the way that he was dressed. But we were like: This is just going to be a scene in Episode 4 that’s in the midst of other insane things happening. We did not expect him to resonate in the way that he has, and we’re thrilled that he did. I will just direct the readers to the final Peteypedia entry. For those not familiar with Peteypedia, it is our ancillary materials written by mostly [Watchmen writer and former EW staff writer] Jeff Jensen and other writers as well. The Peteypedia will have its finale moments after the finale airs. I will not give you a definitive answer to your question, but I will say all the clues are there to reach the obvious conclusion.”
