I'm fairly sure Darius is preparing for a confrontation with the Sandwich Man's deja vu dog from the opening scene of the series.

Yeah, I'm kind of surprised how little fanfare.mefi discussion there was of the borderline PKD-esque elements in E01 - timeframe shifts linked to deja-vu, the increasing divergence between what the protagonists experienced during the shooting (off-screen) and what the public seems to believe or have perceived, definitely not-quite-a-dream Sandwich Man... it's clear that the surreality of the show is significantly more subtle than Twin Peaks or The Leftovers or the like, but there is definitely a 'perception vs reality' fracture that is being hinted at.
