HBO's thriller drama The Leftovers will return with episode 8 – Cairo – tonight and promises to bring some intense moments, as the series is two episodes away from its finale.
The thriller drama has premiered its first season in June this year and is garnering great appreciation from fans.
The story of Leftovers begins three years after an unexplainable incident, Rapture, led to the disappearance of 2% of the world population.
The series follows the life of people who were left behind, focussing on chief of police Kevin (Justin Theroux) and people surrounding him in Mapleton, New York.
The synopsis of episode 8 via Hollywood Hills reads:
"Kevin is going to fear he's losing touch with reality after inexplicably finding himself in a difficult situation involving Patti Levin (Ann Dowd), who is a leader of the Guilty Remnant. Meg (Liv Tyler) will lose control during another encounter with Matt (Christopher Eccleston).
"Jill is going to confront Aimee (Emily Meade) about her relationship with Kevin. Nora will stand up to Laurie (Amy Brenneman), and find her privacy invaded."
Kevin, who is struggling to cope with his broken family, is finding solace while spending some sweet time with Nora.
In the upcoming episode, Kevin will appear more confused than ever when he will deal with the leader of the mysterious Guilty Remnant cult.
