Come Here, Let's Cry About "The Leftovers" Finale Together

The Leftovers series finale aired this past Sunday, and I am still crying about how heartbreaking/hopeful/perfect it was. So we're gonna talk about it.
Carrie Coon (Nora) was amazing, just mail her the Emmy now.
Actually, just mail Christopher Eccleston (Matt) his Emmy in the same package to save on shipping costs.
Oh, and the wedding speech. My heart.
But the thing we really need to talk about is Justin Theroux's Face and how, over the course of the finale, it conveyed every human emotion on the spectrum.

Just focus on that Face:
Great, good talk, time to go cry for another two days.
