Critic Reviews for Solace for Tired Feet

"Solace for Tired Feet" gelled the series together like never before. The Leftovers has been great on its own as a dizzying portrait of broken people, but now it's deftly teasing us with a "higher purpose" for those splintered folks.

Not bad for The Leftovers, which turned in a solid showing with "Solace for Tired Feet," an hour that propelled the show's plot into some intriguing corners even as it reminded us that many of its characters remain unknowable, even seven episodes in.

"Solace for Tired Feet" is a useful respite, pausing to establish the constellation of conflicts driving the first season of The Leftovers to its conclusion.

Tom runs out of the house, bleeding, still horrified at everything. His cell phone rings, and knowing it could only be Wayne, he throws it against a wall and it shatters in a million pieces. Good for Tom!
