Still have questions about the crazy ending to The Outsider? Well, this won’t answer all of them, but HBO’s second featurette for the show does give us a fantastic look inside the show’s final three episodes–particularly how they envisioned El Cuco along with some thoughts about the creature’s backstory.
All the same folks from the last featurette are here, but this time they’re joined by Jason Bateman, who also helped direct and produce the series in addition to his role as Terry Maitland…and yes, they do address that post-credit scene. Not as much as any of us would like, but a sliver of insight is still better than nothing–and more content involving The Outsider is always a good thing.
