This episode was atleast interesting before the last 20 minutes, like most of this season.

So is next week the Kevins and Nora, the week after that these 4 from tonight again, and then they all come together for the finale.

David's mom: "That's wonderful son! What is the part?"

I haven't seen this many dicks flopping around on an HBO series since they cancelled Oz.

That was awful. This season has featured some of the worst scripted television HBO has aired in years. Thank goodness there is only three episodes left.

This might be the first episode of the entire series that I really didn't love that much, but it did have some redeeming moments. Matt has turned from an interesting character into a guy I really don't like to watch, but I did enjoy his final moments with "God". Maybe he'll stop being so manic now.

I'm not expecting the ending to make a ton of sense, just like the rest of this season hasn't made a ton of sense, but the characters emotional journey has been great. I'll be sad when it's over.

Interesting stuff from reddit. Translation of the French over the credits:
I am the only hope, the last defence of a species on the verge of extinction.
The demonologists warned us. These wise truth seers, they said that these creatures will come, seven years after the first were taken, seven years after the Departure... and we were blind, God, blind to what we did not want to see.
Now we stumble on the precipice of destruction. Once this monster is born, we're done, because this monster is the end of mankind, with its seven heads and seven flaming mouths.
We have only one hope: the egg. I found its nest in the demonologists' maps - a submarine volcano.
Thank you, God, for technology! In our [...] we made the weapon to end all weapons: the nuclear bomb. Now, this terrible force may be our salvation, if its explosion can break the fragile shell and melt the demons inside.
God, may the missile fly straight and true! Let it find the volcano nest and may the egg be unhatched so these unborn beasts can be destroyed before they rise to destroy the world!

Question... the 7 year anniversary of the departure is coming up... is that the same day that people are saying the world will end? And either way (I may have missed it because the show is basically background viewing) did they give us a reason why people think the world will end on whatever day they say it will?

I loved this episode. Matt's meltdown with God was great and really moving. I hate the character if I was in that reality, but watching him is pretty entertaining.

And I guess they are using Miracle as time's ground zero, otherwise time zones really fuck everything up anniversary-wise.

Why do you say that? They've mentioned multiple times that the Australian anniversary is the 15th where as Miracle's is on the 14th.

I think there was some talk of the importance of 7 in the Bible, but I don't remember any specific reason people were so sure of the end of the world.

Guess Frasier the Lion was a real critter and even had a movie made about him in 1973.

It can't be rapture... I hope at the end of season (or anytime soon?) that it would explain why 140 million people disappeared.

I finally got around to binging Season 3 and good lord this show has fallen off the cliff.

I liked Season 1 and 2 but this season is an utter mess. I have 3 more episodes as Iím hoping there is a good resolution, but I gotta feeling Iíll be disappointed.

I will say this that Carrie Coon is one of the most underrated actresses in the business today.
