Read only if you want to find out more about Movie News Guide’s (MNG) ”The Leftovers” recap of Season 1 Episode 4 “B.J. and the A.C.” and spoilers for Episode 5 “Gladys.”
Previously on “Two Boats and the Helicopter,” Reverend Matt Jamison’s (Christopher Eccleston) life after the Rapture was featured. He resorted to desperate measures in order to save his church from the back. Both his casino gig and Nora situation didn’t end well, and his prized church was bought by Patti (Ann Dowd) and the Guilty Remnants. Now, he was left with bruises and a still critically injured wife.
Season 1 Episode 4 “B.J and the A.C” is set during the preparation for the Christmas season in Mapleton. Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) was tapped to find who stole the Baby Jesus from the Nativity props. He had learned from the Frost twins (Max Carver and Charlie Carver) that Jill (Margaret Qualley) was behind the incident. It was said that she wanted to stage a Viking funeral before she chickened out of it.
Kevin’s problem didn’t end there. Meg (Liv Tyler) accompanied Laurie (Amy Brenneman) to the Garvey household. Kevin was shocked that Laurie wanted him to sign the divorce papers. Laurie was determined to divorce Kevin despite loving Laurie’s son, Tom (Chris Zylka), as one of his own. Jill went on and gave her mother a Christmas wish. It was a lighter engraved with the phrase “Don’t Forget Me.”
Elsewhere, Tom and Christine (Annie Q.) were concerned that Holy Wayne (Paterson Joseph) hasn’t contacted them for weeks. While Christine flirted with a man, she was attacked by a crazy half-naked man who told her about the A.C. inside her. Tom rushed Christine to the nearby hospital. Tom knew that it was Wayne’s baby, but the doctor seemed concerned that he was the one who hurt Christine.
While they were on the run, Tom considered the Guilty Remnant’s pamphlet as a sign. They planned on going back to Wayne when he received a call. He and Christine were set on joinin the white-clad dummies called the Loved Ones inside a bus.
