The season finale of The Leftovers is only days away and it’s sure to leave us counting down the days until the second season.
In the latest episode we went back in time to see what life was like for Mapleton residents before the Sudden Departure. Kevin (Justin Theroux) and Laurie (Amy Brenneman) had a less than perfect marriage thanks to secrets between them and Kevin’s cheating ways. He spent much of the episode chasing a deer that was causing havoc around the town.
Nora (Carrie Coon) too had a less than perfect family life with her husband Doug (Sebastian Arcelus) disinterested in her and her kids running riot. We also learned that Patti (Ann Dowd) was a patient of Laurie’s and she warned that something big was coming.
The episode ended as Laurie discovered she was pregnant and then minutes later her baby was taken from her when the Sudden Departure hit. We saw the moment Nora realised her family was gone and Kevin’s infidelity took a surprising turn when the woman he was having sex with disappeared.
The next episode of the season is The Prodigal Son Returns. In the season finale, Mapleton is thrown into chaos by the Guilty Remnant.
