Sooo, I did stay up last night to watch it "live". I think I need to watch it again before I can give a detailed assesment. Having said that, I thought it was good, and in the end, I was happy. I'm really looking forward to season 2, and it's going to be a long year....
 



Oh! And shoutout to the orchestral Metallica, that was song was just....perfect.

Ok...has NO ONE else watched the finale yet?? Or....is everyone so disappointed they've got nothing to say?!

I watched it!! and I loved it!! hahaha finally a somewhat glimmer of hope after a very long depressing season haha... the whole "making them remember" stint was insaneeeee.... couldn't believe my eyes. And I'm assuming his wish was to have his family back... well I guess two things came true: everyones back in town together, and it looks as if he may be starting a new family. crazy!! can't wait to see where it leads in the second season (apparently the finale is just like the end of the book.. so whatever happens next is entirely up in the air)

The book is incredibly short, so I'm very interested to see where they go with it. True Blood and Game of Thrones both had/have plenty of source material, yet went their own directions on several occasions (more so in the case of the former). I don't see this having any significant longevity, but if handled right, 2 or 3 more solid seasons.

I'm an idiot and just realized I have access to HBO GO (I rarely watch live TV anymore), so I'll definitely get caught up on this!

I was so excited when I heard this! I thought the book was a series, but I'm glad they can now go off in whatever direction they want to.


I really want Kevin to be happy. I'm glad it seems he got his daughter back, and I'm glad that it looks like Nora may be staying now. She's one of my favorite characters, and I was really bummed when I thought she was going to leave.
 



The ONLY thing I didn't like out of the whole episode, was the dream sequence. One, because they tricked me, and I was starting to get pissed. And two, because it didn't seem to add anything to the story, and was therefore a waste of 7minutes or so.
 



Other than that, REALLY like this show, and I cannot wait to see more Justin Theroux , er, Kevin, in ill-fitting sweatpants.

Justin Theroux Explains His Flopping Package On "The Leftovers"

 

 

 

 

 

Overall I liked the finale, although I do agree the bait and switch dream sequence could have been left out beyond that it again alluded to the National Geographic magazine and Cairo. Carrie Coon was spectacular, as Nora's discovery of her family took my breath away. She made it absolutely horrifying. Justin Theroux was amazing as usual and I especially thought he shinned  as his voice audibly cracked reading the bible verse in the scene with Christopher Eccleston (A favorite of mine from his Doctor Who days).

Of course, it still is very Lost-esque except now we have very strange dogs instead of smoke monsters - so I don't expect a lot of things to be answered or to even fully make sense. Director Mimi Leder said in explaining  the dog in the finale,  "you just have to read into it yourself what you bring to it".

THANK YOU SO MUCH

I read several comments about this from the producer, saying that the show is not really about The Departure itself, or finding the answer to "what happened", but moreso following the characters in the aftermath. I think to fully enjoy the show, we, as viewers, need to be ok with that. What's left is compelling enough for me to still want to see more.

‘Leftovers’ Shakes Up Supporting Cast For Season 2 As Series Moves To New Locale
...a large portion of the fourteen regular cast members in Season 1 — virtually all in supporting roles —  won’t be returning in Season 2 as the series is undergoing a creative reboot, moving the setting from the fictional town of Mapleton, New York to a new location.
I still haven't watched season 1.

You have to watch season 1, it was really good. This can either work really well or be a complete disaster.

You're in the clear. Wink

This season was absolutely amazing. I'd be so sad if it was not renewed for a third season, but the ratings were never good for what has become the best show on television. 

This (with context) is probably one of the most moving scenes I've experienced in a very long time.
