That’s not to say that The Leftovers finale won’t provide any answers — they just won’t necessarily be answers regarding the reasons behind the Departure or any of the bigger “mysteries” woven throughout the HBO drama. Instead, fans can expect to gain closure with the characters’ emotional journeys, particularly when it comes to the show’s central couple.
Adds Lindelof: “I feel like it’s no big secret that the final season of this show, although it’s about a lot of existential big ideas, it’s also a love story. And for Kevin Garvey and Nora Durst, who both, in many ways, had their families explode seven years earlier, have found one another and fallen in love. But maintaining that love has been immensely difficult because of the world that they’re living in and the idea that they could lose each other at any moment. I would say that the ending of the series and the season are both interested in the same idea which is, can these two people be OK with one another and what would it take for them to find some level of security?
