Even the condition with Matt in this week's episode is alluded to in the flashback episode of season 1. The actor guy who was in 302 is shown on TV in a late season 1 episode, as well. :lol:

This has all been planned out very carefully.


The actor was in Season 1 where it was stated he had departed, then he was on a TV in Season 2 where it was revealed he had faked the departure.

I'm not sure it's planned out *that* carefully as the decision to have the actor return and be the one who delivered that monologue to Nora was only taken when breaking Season 3 (http://ew.com/tv/2017/04/24/the-leftovers-perfect-strangers/).

There were two really excellent pieces in the wake of the latest episode btw:

- A conversation between Lindelof and Matt Zoller Seitz (who partially inspired the episode) http://www.vulture.com/2017/05/leftovers-episode-inspired-by-matt-zoller-seitz.html

- A short GQ piece about how the episode came together http://www.gq.com/story/how-the-leftovers-pulled-off-its-best-episode-ever

Jesus christ, last night's episode. :dread: :( That was a devastating final scene between Laurie & Kevin.

That was an acting tour-de-force by Amy Brenneman. Possibly better than her season 2-centric episode. Was she really going to do what she did before calling her kids, though? That was a dick move.

3x06- Well that was brutal. Laurie :(
-Amy Brenneman was indeed exceptional though so it was a fitting send-off.
- Has an episode of television ever had spoilers in its opening title song?
