The Leftovers - Season 1, Episode 6 - Rotten Tomatoes


Critic Consensus: "Guest" benefits from its singular focus on Nora Durst, whose darkly comic adventure in New York City is bleak and disconcerting but also lively and ultimately hopeful.

Episode Info

Nora goes to New York for the second annual Departure Related Occupations and Practices (DROP) conference, but discovers that someone else has her ID badge, so she searches the convention as a "Guest," and has encounters with a salesman, an author and a rogue attendee.

A valuable and fascinating portrait of what life would be like for someone who lost so much in the Departure.

"Guest" didn't repeat the beats from "Two Boats and a Helicopter." It was its own beautiful mess with a surprisingly uplifting outcome.

The most entertaining episode of the season, which is revealing an unfortunate pattern: As soon as the show takes a break from the horror of the Garvey family (the central characters), it gets a LOT better.

"Guest" is simply stunning.
