IGN | 'The Leftovers: No Room At The Inn' Review


“No Room at the Inn” wasn't as shattering as last season's Matt episode simply because it wasn't our first time watching Matt's life get shattered. These were familiar beats. Superb beats, but recognizable. Though this episode certainly wasn't lacking in imagination for all the things it hurled at Matt. Including, most importantly, Mary's pregnancy. A thing he'd always wanted now coming back in a less-than-ideal way. Again, very Monkey's Paw. A "blessing" that now stands to alienate Matt from his own family and the town. At least Mary's now with Nora, who's the one person most likely to buy Matt's story. Especially since he'd already told (most of) it to her.

The story is too old to be commented.
