If You Were 'Leftover'... (Gospel Light Minute X #277)
April 24, 2017 Daniel Whyte III

This week, HBO's post-apocalyptic drama, The Leftovers, returned for its third and final season. The series, based on a novel of the same name by Tom Perrotta, takes place in two small towns a few years after a rapture-like event in which 140 million people vanish from the earth. In the aftermath of the "Sudden Disappearance," some people strive to return to normal despite the loss that they have experienced. Others turn to religious cults, an abundance of which pop up in the aftermath, in order to make sense of the world. Notable among these cults are the "Guilty Remnant" who always wear white and exist to repeatedly remind the world of the fact that they were left behind, or in the show's cheeky terminology, "the leftovers." Others spend their time trying to figure out if a new Jesus-like figure is coming and who he is if he has in fact already arrived.
