Critic reviews for The Book of Nora
The finale was, in every way, lovely. Focusing on the character of Nora (the great Carrie Coon), it gave closure in ways fans of the series couldn't have hoped for.
How good was Carrie Coon? ... If she doesn't win an Emmy this year, the voters should be dragged out of their beds into the street and forced to explain themselves.
No matter what you expected going into the final hour of The Leftovers, it's safe to say few were prepared for an hour of epic romance punctuated by tear-jerking, soul-baring speeches.
The Leftovers was terrific, also short-lived. But Leftovers burned hot over these three seasons, and "three" seems about right.
A one-of-a-kind, utterly committed work of art and philosophy, the finale was a microcosm of The Leftovers itself.
