Netflix's enigmatic series The OA
rode into our lives atop a wave of mystery. The streaming platform barely promoted the Brit Marling vehicle, so when it appeared on Netflix this December, we knew very little about it. All we had was a single tweet from the Netflix account

Now that we've had a moment to binge and digest the show — well, we still have questions. The series is as confusing as it is beautiful. The show is truly stunning, and just as perplexing.
The internet has already staked its claim on OA theories
. (There's nothing the internet loves more than a good television theory.) But even a viewer watching closely might not understand the theories. As I said, this show is a bitch to unravel. Like, what are these movements? Who is Hap? Why is Homer appearing in mirrors all of a sudden?
