Beck: "Maybe it has to do with those fishermen pouring red stuff in the river so that it looks like blood? I mean, a thing that happens all the time every day in this culture, but because you're here to see it, it becomes the Apocalypse? Sure."
Hank: "Maybe. You just can't tell. All I know is, finding these clocks is going to kill everyone on Earth. So that's what we gotta do."
Beck: "I am right here to sky for ya, bro."
Couldn't care less, frankly. I guess Einstein was a Nazi? Or a Rosicrucian? Sure, whatever. Go for it. It's going to be awesome either way, if you like crazy things, and I do like crazy things, so why bother piecing together that which cannot be pieced?
