Jordan Peele's reboot of The Twilight Zone for CBS All Access is an Easter egg-stravaganza for fans of the original sci-fi anthology series. In its first season, it also built its own inter-connected universe, dropping clues that everything was tied together — like the ubiquitous presence of the number 1015 and the references to other characters sprinkled into certain episodes.
All of it led to one gob-smacking payoff in the Season 1 finale, "Blurryman," which effectively tied together all 10 episodes of the reboot's freshman run with one running Easter egg. No one seemed to notice it when the episodes debuted, but it cannot be overlooked upon review of the entire season.
Peele's update of the beloved Rod Serling original is hit or miss — some episodes are much more necessary viewing than others — but it's clear that Peele had a vision and a purpose to updating the series, which was to couple the sociopolitical issues of the day with the eerie format of the original series. All these Easter eggs are just a bonus, really, but we decided to comb through each and every episode of The Twilight Zone reboot and find all the hidden references and winks we could.
