Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen “The Leftovers” episode 209, titled “Ten Thirteen.”
As “The Leftovers” heads into its home stretch, it unleashed an amazing twist at the end of its ninth episode — one that was inspired by a classic ’70s film.
Below, co-creator and executive producer Damon Lindelof discusses how “The Leftovers” pulled off that shocker, what the HBO drama did differently in its excellent second season and how the show is and is not like “Lost.” He also discusses TV’s “fakeout death” trend and season two’s exceptional eighth episode, “International Assassin.”
Stay tuned for Part 2 of this interview, which will be posted Wednesday. Part 3 of Variety’s conversation with Lindelof will be posted the morning after the Dec. 6 season finale of “The Leftovers.”
Variety: Obviously, the big takeaway of episode nine is that Evie is alive, the girls are alive and they’re in the Guilty Remnant. »

The Performers | Justin Theroux
The Show | The Leftovers
The Episode | “International Assassin” (Nov. 22, 2015)
The Performance | After The Leftovers had Kevin’s one-night stand “depart” mid-tryst and gave him Patti as the world’s worst imaginary friend, we would have wagered that we had seen Theroux do it all. And, if you’ll recall, do it well. But we would have lost that bet in a big way.
As the drama out-Twin Peaks’d Twin Peaks at its weirdest with this week’s “International Assassin,” the actor — criminally overlooked thus far by the Emmys — miraculously grounded the episode in reality »

Forgive loyal TV viewers lately if they’re beginning to feel like Charlie Brown, with writers of their favorite series playing the role of Lucy, tantalizingly dangling a football in front of them, only to snatch it away.
Certainly, “The Walking Dead” has played a version of that game, based on recent events (and Spoiler Alert for those who aren’t caught up). Not only did the series strongly imply the death of a significant character, Glenn (Steven Yeun), on screen, but then compounded that by removing his name from the credits and issuing an extremely cryptic statement about his future via the program’s companion discussion show, “The Talking Dead.”
In that same on-air forum, guest Damon Lindelof noted that one would hope “Dead’s” producers weren’t engaging in “a shenanigan,” a rather quaint way of saying that someone has pulled a devious trick. Yet Lindelof could easily be accused of the same, »

It’s been a year of surprises — once again, a rambunctious array of new shows have come out of nowhere to wow us and rattle us and make us glad that television exists. But the best surprise of 2015 might be how good — actually, how great — “The Leftovers” has become.
The show always had its adherents, but I wasn’t one during much of its first season. I recognized the talents of its top-flight cast, but it seemed to have real trouble consistently hitting its chosen target — a terribly difficult target, it must be said.
But I was rooting for it, because “The Leftovers” is part of what might be my favorite TV subgenre: Shows that try to explore complicated and powerful emotional states through keen observation of human nature as well as dream-like symbology. What’s astonishing is that shows like “The Returned,”“Rectify” and the late, lamented “Enlightened” do this so well, »

When Tate Taylor's adaptation of bestseller "The Girl on the Train" starring Emily Blunt ("Edge of Tomorrow," "Looper"), Justin Theroux ("The Leftovers") and Rebecca Ferguson ("Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation") arrives in theaters October 7th, 2016, Disney/DreamWorks and producer Steven Spielberg will aim their marketing eagerly at the same demo as David Fincher's 2014 hit, "Gone Girl." While the original story takes place in London, the film will now be set in the U.S., giving fans of Hawkins' novel an adjustment of scenery. DreamWorks released this photo earlier today of Spielberg alongside director Tate Taylor and his lovely 'The Girl on the Train' cast members, currently gearing up for a busy New York shoot.

Roughly 15 minutes into Sunday’s The Leftovers, Virgil offered Kevin the following piece of advice about his guardian angel from hell Patti: “You’ve got to stop thinking in straight lines. Because she surely will not be. She thinks in spirals and helixes and zigzags and circles.”
PhotosThe Leftovers: 22 Highlights/Burning Qs About ‘International Assassin’
The wise old man may as well have been referring to the breathtaking, audacious, innovative hour itself, which found Justin Theroux’s deceased leading man on some bizarro purgatory-ish adventure (click here for a full recap of the episode).

In what was arguably the weirdest, most wonderful hour of television this season, The Leftovers followed Kevin to the other side this week to reveal not only the outcome of his battle with Patti but also his ultimate fate. So was he really, most sincerely dead? Or if he was, is he still? Read on…
Clothes Make The Man | As “International Assassin” began, Kevin emerged buck naked from a bathtub in a posh hotel room. Outside the closet was a plaque that read, “Know first who you are, »
Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched episode eight of season two of “The Leftovers,” titled “International Assassin.”
The last time we saw Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux), he was being dragged out of Virgil’s trailer by Michael, seemingly dead from a poison overdose. And this week, “The Leftovers” picked right back up where we left off. Creator Damon Lindelof had joked on “Talking Dead” that he had “no tolerance for ambiguity” — and indeed, “International Assassin” (penned by Lindelof and Nick Cuse) dove straight into solving the mystery of our leading man’s fate.
Kevin woke to find himself in a hotel that serves as a purgatory — where Virgil is the concierge and Patti Levin’s husband, Neil, is a hotel guest. (So, too, is Mary Jamison, whom Kevin glimpses in a long hallway shot as she’s getting a “Get Well” bouquet of balloons.) In this netherworld, »

Spoiler alert: Do not read unless you’ve watched episode 207 of “The Leftovers,” titled “A Most Powerful Adversary.”
Kevin Garvey had a very “hard day,” just as the oh-so-cruel Patti Levin warned him. Last Sunday’s episode of HBO’s “The Leftovers” ended with a dramatic twist that left him seemingly dead — and shocked fans reeling. In an exclusive interview, Justin Theroux talked to Variety about Kevin’s “drastic” decision.
How does this season compare to last season for you?
I’m loving this season. I was loving making it. The scripts we were handed just kept getting better and better. Not the source material (for the first season) was bad; it was exceptional. It was just something nice, for (creator) Damon (Lindelof) and for Tom (Perrotta), too, to be left off the leash and explore some other themes.
What did Damon and Tom tell you about what would be in store? »

Justin Theroux stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night and proved that he can do just about anything . . . with his eyebrows. While it's a known fact that Justin is an insanely talented actor, he decided to really put his skills to the test when Stephen challenged him to an eyebrow-acting contest. The two men then had to express certain emotions and situations with just their eyebrows, including wearing uncomfortable shoes and trying to remember their Apple ID. See the full video above, and then check out all the times Justin made you break into a sweat. »
