A few moments ago, I received a text on the burner phone entrusted to The Watchers from The Leftovers (and the good people at HBO). All it said was Deuteronomy 13:1-3. For those of you without a Bible nearby, that verse says: “If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a sign or wonder, and if the sign or wonder spoken of takes place, and the prophet says, “Let us follow other gods” (gods you have not known) “and let us worship them,”  you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The Lord your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

I have to assume this refers to the naked man that Tom tussled with in last week’s episode. Will we see more of him? Does Wayne know him? How did Wayne know he had said this, thus sending The Watchers the message?

Rev. Matt Jamison did mention the Sudden Departure being a test for what was to come after, as the end of the verse refers to. Perhaps Matt has us sent this message? I will continue to post theories on what I think the Scriptural suggestion might mean and what clues the creators of the show might be trying to give us.
