HBO’s dark and intriguing series The Leftovers will air its Season 1 finale Sunday night and, to be honest, I’m assuming it’s going to be a depressing one. In recent episodes we’ve seen the Garvey family and the rest of the residents of Mapleton, NY have their fair share of terrible moments. From the Guilty Remnant’s Patti committing suicide to a flashback showing that not only did Laurie’s pregnant fetus disappeared during the Departure, but Kevin was having an affair. Honestly, could things get any worse? Yes, they probably can and will. But how do we know what will happen? The series was created based on a book of the same name by Tom Perotta and while The Leftovers has several differences from the book, there are still quite a few similarities. So what does the ending of the novel mean for the Season 1 finale of the series? If Perrotta’s novel is any indication (and it might not be), there will be some major changes and something of a fresh start.( “There's not some finite amount of pain inside us. Our bodies and minds just keep manufacturing more of it”Collapse )
Live finale viewing post? How do you think this shit is gonna go down tonight, ONTD? Lindelof don't fail us (again) now!
