Sunday night, HBO's eerie drama signed off in explosive fashion. But in the midst of the chaos, the splintered Garvey clan seemed to find a way back to one another, if only for a moment. Only the baggage they're all carrying is more than any one family should bear.

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.
