Leftovers' Eccleston on Matt's Fall From Grace: "There's a Great Deal of Ugliness in Him"

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from Sunday's episode of The Leftovers. Read at your own risk.]

HBO's The Leftovers took a bit of a detour Sunday. Instead of continuing to focus on the Garvey family, the show dedicated an entire episode to the plight of Christopher Eccleston's Rev. Matt Jamison.

Why The Leftovers isn't Lost: We're not "hoping to find out what happened," boss says

In particular, we learned that Matt's wife (Janel Moloney) was critically injured during the Departure when she and Matt collided with a vehicle whose driver vanished. His congregation's numbers are dwindling (the townspeople justifiably upset by his smear campaign) and he is struggling to pay for his wife's full-time care.

Weekend TV Review: Leftovers, Reckless, a Derek Jacobi Double Bill

"Everybody's ready to feel better," says the mayor of a suburban Anytown that acts as a microcosm of a shattered world in HBO's existentially bleak The Leftovers (Sunday, 10/9c). And chances are you'll require your own pick-me-up after sampling the darkest and most problematic of a new wave of end-times summer series that includes TNT's gung-ho hit The Last Ship and FX's upcoming vampire-virus horror-show The Strain (July 13). With Leftovers, it's a morose case of... read more
