The Leftovers: Crazy Whitefella Thinking / Season: 3 / Episode: 3 (2017)
April 30, 2017
Kevin Garvey Sr. is collecting chants from the native aboriginal tribes of Australia, which he gets arrested for. After he's released, he goes on a search for a tribal leader named Christopher Sunday, who is the only man that knows the last chant he needs to prevent the coming apocalypse. Through illegal methods, he finds him and explains his storied and sordid past. Sunday agrees to assist if he fixes his leaky AC unit. While tending to it, Kevin falls off the roof and on top of Sunday. Having tried unsuccessfully to escort him to the hospital in the back of an ambulance, Kevin now found himself wandering the rural outback. After witnessing a passerby kill himself, and being bitten by a snake, Kevin is rescued by a woman, and taken to rehabilitate at her home. He awakens to find people outside the house building a boat for a flood. The woman reveals herself to be Grace, who has lost all of her family; and has just killed a police officer, based on Kevin's sudden appearance and the note he was found with from Matt's book. In doubt, she questions everything, but Kevin reassures her belief.
