“Blurryman” Season 1, Episode 10 Original airdate: May 30, 2019 This is a meta nod to the original franchise and a breaking of the fourth wall, and it’s easy to see why fans revere the Season 1 finale. TV writer Sophie Gelson ( Zazie Beetz ) is haunted by a shadowy figure as she struggles to develop a new screenplay. Reality soon mirrors fiction when Sophie realizes she’s trapped by her own creation. Come for the nostalgia but stay to the very end when the blurry man and the show’s message finally come into focus. Seth Rogan and Jordan Peele also star.
