The Leftovers – REVIEW 03×08 “The Book of Nora”

Hi guys! “There’s no time to change your mind – the Son has come – you’ve been left behind”. The final chapter of our beloved The Leftovers has come and I couldn’t be more sad about the end of these three amazing years.

 Let’s start from the end. The ending scene is indeed crucial to understand the rest of the episode. The last dialogue between Kevin and Nora reminded me a lot of Grace’s monologue in front of Kevin Garvey Senior: they’re both older than before – some people is sure that 13 years passed since they last met in the hotel in Melbourne (Season 3 Episode 4) – and they have just found each other again after all that time. Kevin pretends he had only met Nora once, at the Christmas dance (Season 1 Episode 4), and that they never were together, and of course never fallen apart.  He stops pretending after a while, when he realizes that his plan of erasing all the pain they had experienced together wasn’t working at all, and he finally confesses: he had been looking for her for years, he had spent every two weeks holiday in Australia for the last 13 years without never giving up, showing a picture of Nora to every single person he had met. And now that he has finally found her, he’s not willing to give her up again. He apologizes for shouting at her the last time they talked, and for telling her she should be departed with her kids.

Hi everyone! The site Making Game Of Thrones just posted a beautiful interview to Bella Ramsey, the little actress who played Lyanna Mormont in Game Of Thrones seasons six! She’s only twelve! 🙂

HBO: What did you first think of Lyanna when you read the script? 

Bella Ramsey: I thought, “This is a character to really get my teeth into.” Lyanna is strong about what she believes, and wants to keep her family and island protected; she wants to be treated like an adult. She’s strong, and firm when she needs to be, and wants the best for her house and the North.

HBO: Fans love Lyanna! What do you think about their reaction?

Bella Ramsey: It’s crazy really. I didn’t expect anything like it. I am very, very happy that people like Lyanna Mormont. We had to keep it quiet that I had a part in GoT so now it’s out, my family have had lots of people they know contacting them, really excited they have seen me.

HBO: Had you seen the show before filming your scenes?

Bella Ramsey: When I knew I got the part, I was allowed to watch a few suitable snippets. I was interested to see the bit in Season 5 when Stannis [Baratheon] received Lyanna’s letter.

HBO: How do you approach your scenes?

Bella Ramsey: I read through the whole scene first, not necessarily focusing on my lines, but on the scene as a whole. I think it’s important to have an understanding for it before I start approaching actually learning my lines.
