“I can’t afford to have this place explode again.”
So it’s the end of the world as we know it, huh? Do we feel fine?
The Leftovers is back for its final run — only eight episodes in this last hurrah — and it’s setting the table for an apocalypse or two as a big time jump has now taken us up to the doorstep of the 7th anniversary of the Departure. Similar to the Season 2 premiere, “The Book of Kevin” superbly shuffled us sideways a little bit, moving us ahead with the intent of filling in the gaps later. Because, coming out of this premiere, not only do we still need to find out what happened to baby Lily and Regina King’s Erika, but that gripping and scary final jump, right at the end, has to explain a hell of a lot.
