Critic reviews for Lens

Damon Lindelof, co-creator of The Leftovers, likes the clash between science and religion, as evidenced by the direction his past show, Lost, took towards the end of its run. "Lens" packs the two sides into a gripping, gut-punching 60-minute episode.

Change is an illusion because of ego and trauma and tragedy. Or, it is on The Leftovers, anyway.

Nora (Carrie Coon) and Erika (Regina King) came head to head over the most sensitive of subjects: their dead - or departed - kids.

In the final moments, everyone was seen through the lens at very close range, baring their very souls. Ahhh. Lens.

There is hope within the world of The Leftovers that one's beliefs can be shaken up. And it seems right that that person would be Nora.

The episode's power rests on attempts by the hour's two POV characters, Erika and Nora, to figure out how much they're to blame for their loved ones' Departures.
