Critic reviews for Off Ramp

The episode ends on a fairly promising note, as these two running a cult in order to save people from a cult can only lead to some interesting television.

For the third time in as many episodes, the perspective is shifted on The Leftovers. But thankfully, more questions continued to be answered than asked.

In a revealing episode that found the former GR member out of the cult and actively trying to save other members, Amy Brenneman brought impressive depth, range and emotion to a character who's been building up to a breaking point since Season 1.

The jarring nature of 'Off Ramp' comes from how quickly it snaps the viewer back into the mindset of season 1 and how it explores the repercussions of those ten episodes with such a specific and intimate field of vision.
