    The only “human” with enough to take out the Watcher…Dr. Doom? Inside job? Another Watcher did it?

    I am also looking forward to the “Who Done It?”, Why? and ramifications of “killing” the Watcher.

    The “Watcher” didn’t “SEE” this coming? What was he “looking” at when it happened?

    Dr. Dre said;

    Everywhere that I go
    Ain’t the same as befo’ (The Watcher)
    People I used to know
    Just don’t know me no more (The Watcher)
    But everywhere that I go
    I got people I know (The Watcher)
    Who got people they know
    So I suggest you lay low (I watch)

    Things just ain’t the same for (Watchers).
    Times is changing, young (Watchers) is aging,
    Becoming old gees in the game and changing,
    To make way for these new names and faces, but
    The strangest things can happen from rappin, when
    (Watchers) get wrapped up in image and acting,
    (Watchers) get capped up and wrapped in plastic,
    Zipped up in bags when it happens, that’s it.
    I’ve seen ’em come; I’ve watched ’em go,
    Watched ’em rise, witnessed it and watched ’em blow.
    Watched ’em all blossom and watched ’em grow.
    Watched the lawsuits when they lost the dough.
    Best friends and money: I lost them both.
    Went, visited (Watchers) in the hospital.
    It’s all the same $#!+ all across the globe.
    I just sit back and watch the show. (The watcher)

    So I suggest you lay low (I watch)
