WATCHMEN'S Regina King has promised a ‘wonderful pay-off’ in a ‘painful’ finale episode full of Easter Eggs.

The 48-year-old Oscar winner plays Angela in the TV series inspired by the DC Comics characters, and the first episode left fans with plenty of questions.

But speaking to RadioTimes.com, Regina promised viewers answers would come in due course, saying: "

I think each episode that has left you with questions, you get to the next episode and some of them are answered. Some of them are not.

“But new questions come. And there’s just this wonderful pay-off in episode six that happens, and it only feels like a pay-off if you’ve watched one to five, because they kind of set you up for it.

“After episode six you’re kind of like ‘woah…’ and then seven, eight and nine just continue to keep it going.”

The show is set in an alternate contemporary reality in America, where superheroes and masked vigilantes are outlawed because of their violent actions.

This leads some to start a revolution, while others try to stop it.

Series creator Damon Lindelof has insisted the show is not a direct adaptation of the original source material and instead tells a new story in a world where the events of the original storyline also occurred.

The series, which airs on HBO in the US, consists of nine episodes, and Regina promised big things for the finale.

She said: “I do think people are going to tap into maybe emotions that they’ve never really discussed, or even knew that they had, or pain that they had that they didn’t talk about.

“You will see more sides to Angela. I think that’s what was so attractive to me about the character, just reading the first script.

"I saw someone that is, like pretty much all of us, switching masks all the time, to adapt.
