Listen, it’s fine, rumor has it the mustache was on holiday in Bermuda during filming and couldn’t catch a flight back in time. Or maybe it was just asking for a little too much money this time around. It’s almost to the point of earning its own opening credits line at this point, after all.

So there you have it, what is arguably the best and most powerful mustache of the decade, courtesy of the one and only Pedro Pascal. An inspiration to facial hair everywhere.
