The Leftovers ended way more satisfyingly than it began—there were no Clan of the Cave Bear vibes in “I Live Here Now.” The finale allowed itself a few maudlin moments, but also had some very cruel ones. And while it solved a few riddles, it was mostly content to “let the mystery be,” as the theme song instructs.
“Lens” turns its focus on The Leftovers’ mothers, chiefly Nora and Erika, who find they have things in common other than the children they’ve lost. But just because they understand each other doesn’t mean they’re going to become best friends. Oh yeah, and one of them might be a demon?
Talk about harrowing. We finally spend more than a scene or two with the Jamiesons—which means a lot of heavy lifting for Christopher Eccleston’s determined reverend—and in a season that’s been all about scaling down, “No Room at the Inn” was The Leftovers’ most intimate hour yet.
We still don’t know where all the departed people went, and that includes the newly-missing Evie Murphy and friends. And what’s more, “A Matter of Geography” introduces some new mysteries into The Leftovers’ roiling pot of WTF ... most of them revolving around Kevin Garvey.
It’s a whole new Leftovers, y’all—in the intriguing season two opener, “Axis Mundi,” we’ve left the dark insanity of Mapleton, New York for Miracle, Texas, a town that’s been re-named as such because none of its residents were raptured on that fateful October 14.
Well, then. After a slowly burning season, The Leftovers exploded, throwing Mapleton into complete chaos while reshuffling its disparate characters. But where will all these changes really leave the Garvey family?
This week, The Leftovers flashed back to the time just before the Sudden Departure, and showed us what was going on with our characters just before two percent of the population disappeared. It turns out that there was still already of desperation going around.
The Leftovers has been very coy for most of its first season, but big revelations came tumbling out of last night's episode. The usually plot-light show made some major changes to the status quo while finally revealing the purpose behind the mysterious Guilty Remnant.
If the second episode of post-Rapturish drama The Leftovers proved anything, it's that things happen on this show because they happen—with little other explanation. When it comes to the show's more mystical elements, that's all well and good, but when it comes to the characters, it's a huge, glaring problem.
We cannot wait for HBO's moody new drama The Leftovers. It's based on the book penned by Election scribe Tom Perrotta, who has thankfully stayed on to produce this series with Damon Lindelof. The premise is simple: The Rapture happens and the audience picks up with those who were left behind.
There's simply nothing to dislike in the first full trailer for Damon Lindelof's new Rapture drama The Leftovers. The show is about 2% of the world's population simply disappearing one day, and how the survivors deal with this inexplicable loss. Spoiler: They don't handle it very well.
