It’s that time of the week again! Only 48 hours til The Leftovers S03E03 so you can officially start getting excited… NOW!
“Don’t be Ridiculous” raised so many questions – will Nora pay $20,000 to be zapped out of existenZ? Is the quantum science death ray real? Is Mark Linn-Baker out of his Vulcan mind? Who the hell was Australian chief of police Kevin? What’s Lindsay Duncan and her posse of old gals up to? Is Kevin Garvey really the messiah or is he a very naughty boy?
I can’t bring myself to watch it, but here it is for your personal edification.
“Crazy Whitefella Thinking” is set to be a very special episode which sees Kevin and Nora travel to Australia in the 23rd ever Leftovers episode – a number both Damon Lindelof, The Illuminati and myself are obsessed with!
While Jarden was nicknamed Miracle, and a bona fide miracle took place there on October 14th, this move to Australia for the remainder of the season feels like a return to the show’s spiritual home. Australia was a place which held great healing power and significance in Lost. Might the two shows be set in the same universe, after all?
The Leftovers S03E03 was written by Damon Lindelof and Tom Spezialy who cut his teeth on Weird Science and Honey, I Shrunk The Kids: The TV Show so expect some weird science and humor.
In a welcome return after last week, Mimi Leder is back behind the camera. The Leftovers S03E03 airs on HBO. Sunday. 9/8c
