There’s something about John Sugar (Colin Farrell), besides being a captivating personality, that he has exhibited more of a peculiar gist to the Sugar tale.

For instance, Sugar can stay sober all night even though he consumes an abundance of liquor.

He asserted how he had a quick metabolism, which processed his alcohol consumption fifty times faster than usual.

Moreover, Sugar is shown with a finger problem in one scene, struggling to hold his phone while a strange sound plays in the background.

But then, he picks up the phone and walks off like nothing happened, though a bit wobbly.

It leaves us wondering what’s up with him and what secrets he’s keeping.

Perhaps it might be the effects of the blood injections, which were injected by Henry while Sugar was profusely bleeding from a knife attack.

When Henry (Jason Butler Harner) took out the blood bag, it seemed strange as they had high mobility functions.

The review team of Road To Peace Films believes John Sugar isn’t an ordinary person but an experimental loophole invented to resolve the mystery.

John Sugar Turned Blue, Suggesting That He Might Not Be A Human Species

In Episode 6, the most shocking moment occured when John returned to his motel room and seized an injection and some liquid from Ruby’s place.

In his bathroom, he injected himself in the neck with the mysterious substance. The result?

A startling transformation: John’s entire body turned blue, resembling an alien or an extraterrestrial creature

The blue hue suggests that John Sugar might not be entirely human. Could he be an alien?

While some viewers speculated that this scene could be a drug-induced hallucination, the earlier pack of blood seen in the series hints at something more profound.

Whatever Henry administered to John was far from ordinary human blood.

The show’s creators have masterfully blended genres, and we are eagerly awaiting further revelations about John Sugar’s true identity.
