Binge-Watch The Leftovers With the Carver Twins: Episode 8

Max and Charlie Carver continue their binge-watch of Season 1 with the commentary below. Find the full run-down of their guide here.

Episode 8: "Cairo"

What was your reaction to seeing Jill arrive at the G.R. house?

Charlie: "Mine was, 'That's not in the book!' It kills you a little bit. The shot that really captured it was on Amy Brenneman's face. That look says everything. That was heartbreaking."

Max: "As a viewer, I can at least understand Jill. She's looking for where the love is."

What was your take on Jill and Aimee's fight?

Charlie: "It was so interesting watching Justin [Theroux] and Emily [Meade] or Aimee and Kevin throughout the course of the season, because I didn't know what to think – if there was any kind of sexual undertones in their relationship until Episode 7. That's where I went, 'Wow, Aimee really did cross a line and even though Jill wasn't there, Aimee crossed a line with Kevin.' That's not the kind of fight that you easily recover from."

Max: Yeah, sexual energy towards your friend's parent is a little weird.
