It’s been a little while since we last saw Kevin Garvey on “The Leftovers,” hasn’t it? The last new episode was more of a window into the soul of Laurie and Tom, and as excellent as it was, it just didn’t have time for Miracle or Jarden.
Here’s a quick recap if some of what you saw has started to slip through the cracks a little bit. Kevin awoke at the end of episode 2 to find himself with a block tied to one of his feet, which leads to the suggestion that either he was sleepwalking, or the voice in his head a.k.a. Patti is still there trying to get him to kill himself. Evie has also gone missing, which of course leads you to wonder whether or not any of these events are tied to one another.
In the sneak peek below, Kevin is wonderfully honest about what happened to him to Nora and Jill; we say “wonderfully” mostly because of the fact that in most shows, you’d have the main character lying mostly for the sake of doing so, even if there is no rhyme or reason behind it. Is Kevin going to actually tell anyone else, though? For the time being, he appears to be discouraged from doing anything out of fear that no one will believe him or interpret it properly.
The only thing that we feel and can say with confidence for now is that this struggle is probably not going to be getting any easier for Kevin in the near future. As a matter of fact, we anticipate Patti continuing to haunt him until more damage is done.
