The Leftovers (S1E08) -- "Cairo" -- 8/17/14





Kevin fears he's losing touch with reality after inexplicably finding himself in a difficult situation involving Patti Levin (Ann Dowd), a leader of the Guilty Remnant. Meg (Liv Tyler) loses control during another encounter with Matt (Christopher Eccleston); Jill confronts Aimee (Emily Meade) about her relationship with Kevin; Nora stands up to Laurie (Amy Brenneman), and finds her privacy invaded.

Written by Curtis Gwinn & Carlito Rodriguez; directed by Michelle MacLaren.

Episode 8 of 10


In case you missed it, HBO renewed this for a 2nd season last Wednesday

so is Janel Maloney's character going to get better/be in important flashbacks, or is it just where her career is at that she is playing this role?

I had "love to hate" feelings about Patti, and I'm going to miss that fat ****'s presence on the show.

I still have no idea what's going on in this show, but I always look forward to watching it.

Just when I thought we'd never have to hear Liv Tyler speak again...

I thought this was an awful episode...the last couple had been pretty decent, but this reminded me of some of the horrible episodes from earlier in the season.

Did everyone notice it was Memorial Day, even though we had a Christmas episode not too long ago?

Completely agree - didn't care for this episode at all. I also noticed the jump. Not explained very well, but maybe that was the point w/the Memorial Day banner, etc.

You realize that's a quote from the show, right?

So who thinks the police chief actually boned his daughter's friend?


And if he did, who could blame him?

I'm sure he doesn't remember it, if he did.

I hate the blackout/sleepwalking aspect they threw at us this week (is that in the book?)...something this show didn't need, and something that I'm sure isn't going to go away now that they've presented it.

They've been hinting about the blackout/sleepwalk thing all season long.

I feel like they've been hinting at it for a while... They either did...or probably came close to... Like the night he blacked out and got the dog. She asked if he remembers what he said to her. Then that one morning she came out all skimpy outfitted.

The blackout/sleepwalking thing wasn't in the book - unless it was and I blacked out/sleed-read during those parts. Not sure where they're going to go with that.

At this point in the show, I think it pretty much deviates from the book for the most part (the Wayne/son thing has to play out a tiny bit further still).

The show kept me curious enough to ride the season out. Not hating it, but not loving it either - it definitely just squeaks by on the pass/fail grade. However, there better be some great stuff coming before the season is over - because riding this line isn't enough to keep me for another season.

It thought it was one of the better episodes of the season, as this show has really picked up the past few weeks. I still wouldn't call it a great show, as its lacking something, but I enjoy it now and looking forward to the finale and 2nd season.

So all the shirts hanging obviously indicated he'd been there a lot...did he murder others as well?

The shirts he got back from the dry cleaners didn't have patches on them like the actual missing shirts shown here, right? Wouldn't he think something was up with that?
