The episode title "Cairo" may mean nothing to you - it's actually where Kevin and Patti squared off - but plenty of other answers were given during HBO's latest entry in "The Leftovers."
The events that transpire in this week's episode of The Leftovers are so shocking that it's probably going to take until next week's episode for my jaw to stop hurting from hitting the floor!
"Cairo" was just dynamite, and evidence that The Leftovers doesn't have to resort to a strict single-POV angle every week if it wants to achieve its full dramatic potential.
The Leftovers dropped a wicked and heavy weight on our laps this week with "Cairo" - where Kevin's sanity and morality were run through a rather diabolical gauntlet.
Kevin and Patti have the showdown to end all showdowns. "You're wondering if I have a sense of debt to you for saving my life - maybe I'll change my mind about decimating yours," Patti says.
More than most weeks, "Cairo" has some compelling underpinnings that make it a solid episode. But especially around Kevin, the storytelling falls short of the mystery.
"Cairo" was all about turning the screw until someone, anyone yelled "Jesus Christ, enough!"
Like the wild dog that Jill cut loose, Kevin's inner beast might be off the leash again.
I was thinking political intrigue, like a post-Rapture Game of Thrones. What's actually happening is far more interesting.
All that is to say that "Cairo," the eighth installment of this debut Leftovers season, was a busy, twisty hour, packed with more plot surprises than the first few episodes combined.
