Last night, Damon Lindelof’s The Leftovers looked a lot more like Lost. Here are some theories to help unpack everything that happened.

We all thought Patti Levin (Ann Dowd), the fearless leader of the Guilty Remnant, was gone after last season on The Leftovers. It was utterly brutal and painful to watch, but like many things on Damon Lindelof’s metaphysical series, trauma from the past doesn’t go away easily. Here’s what the actress had to say about the latest shocking episode of the HBO show.
Sunday night’s The Leftovers pulled its very own Red Wedding. In case you didn’t catch the hint, major spoilers for “The Most Powerful Adversary” follow. Here are the theories.
As Season 2 of The Leftovers continues to be one of the best dramas on television, each week gives us a few answers, but adds double the mysteries. Is Miracle really a place of miracles? Is a second Departure responsible for the disappearance of Evie and her friends?
If you thought Damon Lindelof was about to explain one of his many mysteries to you, well, he has the perfect response. In Sunday night’s The Leftovers, “Orange Sticker,” we finally got some explanations of all the mysterious happenings going on it Jarden, Texas. But can they be trusted?
Season 2 of The Leftovers, which premieres on HBO this Sunday, has drastically changed things up from Sthe grief-heavy Season 1. After the first season reached the ending of Perrotta’s book (though Perrotta remains an executive producer), Lindelof’s series is now free to further explore other, larger areas of the story. The first three episodes of the new season, which were provided in advance to press, do exactly that.
As many promoting The Leftovers Season 2 can attest (including our own forthcoming review), the second outing of Damon Lindelof’s HBO rapture drama strikes a vastly different, even more upbeat tone in certain spots. Nothing will make that clearer than the brand-new opening credits, an impressive contrast from the classical painting and ominous “BRAHM”s of yesteryear. Plus - first clip from the premiere!
HBO Rapture drama The Leftovers gave us an eerie sneak peek into its second season by way of a water-logged new poster yesterday, and now a new trailer lets us dive even deeper into darkness. The Garveys move to the “Jarden of Eden,” but all is not well by the new footage and photos.
ABC’s LOST may not have answered every mystery set up over the course of five seasons, but did you know that J.J. Abrams first pitched the island drama to ABC as having no serialized mystery whatsoever? Or that the costly pilot got ABC’s then-president fired for his trouble? We don’t have to go back, the 21st episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?’ is right here, smoking out all the island secrets of LOST!
Following its initial revelatory teaser, The Leftovers finally serves up a full course for Season 2. The Garvey family has moved on in the first spot of the second run from Damon Lindelof’s post-rapture drama, but a move to the departure-free Miracle, Texas has brought anything but peace to the family, judging by the explosive footage.
