All of the October 14 Departures in One Beautiful Video

"What is incomprehensible is what is hardest. We cannot support it. We fear the unexplainable like emptiness." —French-Canadian poet and author Louise Bouchard

In The Leftovers on October 14, two percent of the world's population disappeared. Nobody knows why and where they went. This brief event changed the world's conception of life. From that day on, nothing was ever under control.

To show the reactions of all the people who experienced this chaotic event chronologically, I created one unique video with all the departures from Season 1.

Watch it after the jump.

A Look Back: The Departure & The Guilty Remnant

Season 2 of The Leftovers starts this Sunday, Oct. 4. A variety of trailers (here’s one!) and a Season 1 recap have been released, but looking for a reminder about the Departure in general? Co-creator Damon Lindelof takes you back in the first installment of our The Leftovers: A Look Back video series, focusing specifically on the Departure and the Guilty Remnant.

“Three years before this show started, on Oct. 14, two percent of the world’s population vanished without explanation,” Lindelof reminds in the video. “Everybody on the planet was deeply confused and horrified by this event, particularly if you lost someone in your own family. For three years, the world was trying to kind of understand this thing.”

Lindelof continues his education in the video, which you can watch after the jump.
