The Watcher’s Impact and Fan Theories
The Watcher has been a topic of much discussion and theorizing among fans. The series, known for its intricate plot and suspenseful storytelling, has led to numerous fan theories about the true identity of The Watcher and the motives behind the haunting events. Naomi Watts said in an interview that The Watcher‘s secret was even kept from her and Mia Farrow. She added- “It was a fresh story for me. And I just imagined myself in the same shoes of that family, of being in a situation where they were finally able to get their dream home into their clutches. And that fear of it not going well — but not wanting to give it up at the same time.”
