When asked about “The Most Powerful Man in the World” and reuniting with Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) one last time, Dowd told Watching The Leftovers:

“It was a blast, it was also terrifying. The script was thrilling, and then I realized, now I have to do it. The whole thing was terrifying and wonderful. The show means everything to me, so it was sad too because it was going to be over. It was full of everything. It was a terrific experience.”
