Chickens are coming home to roost.
With their weird ways, stoic appearances and controversial messaging – "There is no family" – the Guilty Remnant cult in Mapleton came under heavy fire on Sunday's episode of HBO's The Leftovers.
In a gruesome, hard-to-watch opener, we learn just how much the local cult is loathed. And how barbaric some in town have become since the disappearances.

Spreading Christmas fear?
On Sunday night's episode of HBO's The Leftovers, much is revealed about the Garveys' past.
But as for the present, it's the holidays and things are only getting worse.
The episode opens in an austere toy factory, showing a worker building a lifelike baby doll from start to shelf. The toy's later purchased from a Mapleton store, swaddled and placed in the manger of the town's nativity scene.

Talk about O.M.G.
Sunday night's episode of HBO's The Leftovers did away with the myriad character vignettes and focused on the painful, pious life of Mapleton's religious leader, Father Matt Jamison (Christopher Eccleston). It raised the question: Did faith decide who left – during the sudden departure that claimed the lives of millions – and who was simply leftover?

And the plot sickens.
On Sunday's episode of HBO's mind-bending new drama The Leftovers – about a town reeling from a rapture-like occurrence that claimed millions all over the world, including many of their citizens – the hunt is on for dogs, trees, people and seemingly everything in between.
The show's second episode opens mid-manhunt, as police officers raid the ranch of mysterious soothsayer Wayne (Paterson Joseph). He's a reported pedophile who keeps company with a host of young girls, but is better known for healing the grief-stricken with his magical hugs.

In a word: enrapturing.
Premiering Sunday night, HBO's The Leftovers, about a small New York town in the aftermath of a global Rapture-like event that caused the sudden disappearance of two percent of the world's population, was possibly the most anticipated new show of the summer. While disturbing, the first episode did not disappoint.
