Some major events happened in this episode. The permanence of those events will say a lot about the reality that defines the universe of The Leftovers. We, at the Daley Review, have long been of the opinion that the Sudden Departure is not the only supernatural event or example in the show’s universe. However, the bulk of the show remains grounded in a reality that, although bleaker, is nearly identical to our own. Whatever happens after this show will tell the fans of this show how far the magical parameters actually stretch.
