Sad sad sad! Poor Laurie. I feel terrible for Jill and Tommy, though who knows what the anniversary will bring?

I like that Matt is now completely divested of his bullshit. As for Norah, I am very curious to see how her story unfolds now that she's found the machine.

So the last supper parallels were interesting, though the guest of honor apparently wasn't there for the stew. That didn't stop them from making sure all the apostles were sleeping when he returned from the garden.

So sad about Laurie. She was a bit of an ass early on, but this episode did a lot to explain the kind of pain that drives one to the Guilty Remnant.

New York Times on the episode. And the AV Club.

I'm hoping Laurie didn't actually do the deed because she lied by omission about being in Austrailia when talking to her kids. If nothing happens on the anniversary--and I don't think Laurie believes anything apocalyptic will, her whereabouts will make her death even more confusing for them.

That's why I'm having trouble thinking Laurie is going to stage an accident. The whole point of the scuba diving method is that it wouldn't be hard on the family but wouldn't her kids be like wtf was she doing in Australia? Strangely, I did feel like that might be the last we see of Nora as she seemed ready to go through the machine and at peace with whatever happened. And Kevin said he was planning to submit to the test...This show is so bonkers that I can envision a series finale where every major character commits suicide and it's actually a good ending.
