Critic reviews for I Live Here Now
The Leftovers was the rare treat that got better in its second season. Justin Theroux and Christopher Eccleston both took my breath away with some of the most touching, most powerful performances I've seen on TV all year.
What a twist: The Leftovers' second season has a happy ending... The dose of communal happiness was well-deserved after what the show just put everyone through.
In the final moments of this episode we finally see a community that's come together out of not just necessity and a need, but also something like love.
In true Damon Lindelof fashion, not every mystery introduced throughout the ten episodes was answered in "I Live Here Now," but enough were that the finale was more than satisfying.
Simply an outstanding finale for The Leftovers' superb second season.
