The Leftovers ended with “The Prodigal Son Returns” last week and after an hour of more despair and some really horrific and devastating scenes, it looks like Kevin and the gang are starting to heal. Kevin even got along with that dog! Matt helped Kevin get rid of Patti’s body. Kevin then thought Matt was […]

This week’s episode of The Leftovers, “The Garveys at their Best” finally showed us a bit of what life was like before everything got all screwed up. And yes, everything was screwed up back then too. And things were just as weird and kind of sort of supernatural and connected. Patti was Laurie’s patient and […]

Okay, so there are two episodes of The Leftovers left, and I’m always left with so many questions that never get answered. This week, in “Cairo,” Kevin blacked out, which we learned he has been doing this whole time (his missing shirts were even in the woods there!), and kidnapped Patti. Patti and he talked […]

The Leftovers’ “Solace for Tired Feet” focused once again on the Garvey family. Jill was being her same old self. She tried to break the record for longest time being stuck in a refrigerator and ended up getting stuck, and that’s when her grandpa showed up. Those two actually ended up getting along. Kevin was […]

This week’s episode of The Leftovers titled “Guest” took a look into Nora Durst’s life. She lost her husband and her children in the Departure and she, like every other character on The Leftovers, is understandably not doing well. We saw just how horribly she was doing during “Guest.” She’s been buying the same food […]

“Gladys” was a very disturbing episode of The Leftovers. It started out with Gladys, a member of the Guilty Remnant, being stoned to death. It was absolutely horrific and ended with Gladys actually speaking and begging for her life. Gladys wasn’t the only member of the Guilty Remnant to speak though. After Patti started to […]

This week’s episode of The Leftovers went back to having multiple storylines. I found Laurie’s storyline to be particularly heartbreaking. The part with the picture frames was completely chilling though. Kevin Garvey had two missions this week on The Leftovers. The first mission was to find the baby Jesus that mysteriously vanished from the manger. […]

This week’s episode of The Leftovers, titled “Two Boats and a Helicopter” was definitely different from the first two. Rather than going from story to story as usual, we got to know Christopher Eccleston’s Matt Jamison a whole lot better than before. He is determined for people to know “the truth” about what happened. It […]

The second episode of The Leftovers titled “Penguin One, Us Zero,” delved more into Kevin Garvey. It looks like everyone thinks that he’s going crazy like his dad, and he’s starting to believe it himself. It’s really unclear if the bald man with the pickup truck that was killing dogs was real or not, but […]

I’m really not sure how I feel about The Leftovers. It was intense and definitely depressing and left me with a lot to think about. The Leftovers takes place three years after a mysterious rapture-like event that took 2% of the population. The rest of the world is still trying to understand and get over […]
