Season 2, Episode 4: It seem we’re running in some circles now. This episode showed, however, what makes “The Leftovers” great. Among the great mysteries, we still have time to breathe and show the characters grieving and vulnerable.

Season 2, Episode 3: Probably the weakest of the season so far. However, with Laurie speaking now, I think we’ve learned more about her character than in the whole first season combined.

Season 2, Episode 2: Felt like a lot of pretty big emotional issues were just swept under the rug at the start of this episode. Besides that, Episode 2 is re-assuring letting us know that our season 1 cast, as a whole, is still lingering around even if the main characters moved all the way south.

Season 2, Episode 1: Miss the original theme song. Though all in all it looks like this season is going to try to counter some of those “slow burn” reviews that season 1 got. Great, mysterious opening sequence which mirrored the conclusion of the episode. Very interesting new characters as well. Off to a great start.
