Critic reviews for A Most Powerful Adversary
This horrifically upsetting episode of The Leftovers draws the mind towards wanting to know what's next.
Back at Virgil's, the heart-stopping - literally, for Kevin and Virgil - final moments of the episode only take a few minutes but are so packed with drama and shock that it feels like they unfold in slow motion.
That Kevin chooses Creepy Grandpa and the cup of poison is pretty interesting in that what he's doing sort of mirrors the big 'embrace and live within the various inexplicable mysteries of life' theme of The Leftovers.
I'm putting all my trust into The Leftovers. After I've gone this far on this mad journey, what other choice do I have?
