Ozymandias: The Finder ruins my Geek Cred.

02 Feb

On the last episode of The Finder, there was a running gag that its not really hacking/breaking into Leo’s computer because he always says his password aloud when he types it in: Ozymandias. While it sounded familiar, I couldn’t place it, hence the now black mark on my Geek Cred. Also helped that I couldn’t spell it either. I happened to run across the word today and the face palm could be heard around the world.

Wiki Article for Ozymandias

So, Ozymandias has several uses and references. What could Leo be referring to?

He doesn’t seem the comic book type, so I’m betting towards it being either a reference to Ramses the Great or the poem by Shelly. Perhaps it was his wife’s favorite poem or maybe it was her nickname for him?

Or maybe it means nothing and the writers were just looking for something cool for Leo to say?

New episode tonight, so maybe we’ll find out.

    So, I know this is 5 yrs too late. However, i believe it is the Poem. The poem tells of the Egyptian King who was all great and powerful and thought his legacy would be immortal. His great cities, his wealth, and even his personage for the most part; is gone, only sand and ruin is left.

    Now Leo was a great and successful lawyer and probably had such views until…, well you know by now, and the password serves as a reminder that power, wealth, and status means nothing. The sculpter capturing the king’s sneer was a reflection on the sculper’s view on him. So the thing the surpasses time is the relationships you build with others and the character the see in you, which reflects on Leo’s work with Willow and Walter and generally how he interacts with people in general.

    That’s my 5 years’ late reflection on the password mystery.

    It could maybe be a reference to king of kings.
