Watchmen: Chapter VII - page 10


Panels 7-9:  In these three panels the words are, again, juxtaposed against the imagery.  We have Laurie making the comments:  “…I’d always feel like I was under observation…”  “…[in Dan’s secret basement he’d have] nobody watching [him]…” followed by Dan saying, “These days, I feel like something’s watching my every move.”  These remarks are played against an image of the empty costume staring out at the audience followed by a close-up of the goggles, within which we see a reflection of Dan heading upstairs. 

The costume is watching them, waiting for these two heroes to put their costumes back on, waiting for them to stop denying what makes them who they are.
