The Watcher Ending Explained

While Netflix’s version of The Watcher is based on a true story, the show was fictionalized in a few specific elements in the storyline. The Broaddus family never shifted their home to 657 Boulevard, but in the show, it is shown as if the family moved to this particular locality. And it is a huge petition from the audience’s side to get a clear insight into The Watcher’s ending; well, in the end, the final letter ends with The Watcher saying these words, “You are despised by the house. And The Watcher won.” At the show’s end, the audience could get a reference that John Graff was The Watcher.
