Episode one of the first season of HBO’s The Leftovers starts off in a small suburban town on an ordinary, sunny day. People are working, shopping, going home, and spending time with their families, friends, and co-workers when suddenly, a departure. Without warning, 2% of the world’s human population just vanishes, with no explanation, purpose, or answers to be found; the world is devastated and shocked. Cults arise, lives and families fall into shambles, crisis organizations are established, and a paradigm shift occurs on planet Earth. What happened to all of those people; where did they go; and what does it mean for the rest of us?
