In the latest episode of HBO's "The Leftovers" season 2 "A Matter of Geography," Kevin, Jill and Nora try to cope up with the situation after the riot of Mapleton. However, the problems of the past are still haunting them.

In the upcoming episode, the newly formed Garvey clan starts on their mission in the safety of Miracle whereas Nora makes a decision in a hurry and Kevin tries to solve Murphy's problems.
It seems Kevin's problems have no end even though he has left New York and has moved to Texas now. Given that the series' location has changed entirely, the overall theme of the show is likely to be changed significantly with more hope than the grim and dark setting of the first season.
In the previous episode titled "Axis Mundi," Kevin Garvey (Justin Theorux) arrived at Jarden, Texas with his girlfriend Nora (Carrie Coon) and daughter Jill (Margaret Qualley). He decided to shift to the town because it was one of those few places that was unaffected by the Departure, which witnessed extinction of two percent of the world's population.
The first few minutes of the episode introduced the town's citizens like the Murphys (played by Regina King and Kevin Caroll). The Garveys were shown at the end of the episode.
In an interview with TVLine, executive producer and co-creator Damon Lindelof said that episode 2 will be a flashback of Garvey's journey to Texas. "The second episode is purely through the point of view of the Garveys, and it will start prior to the moment when we see them arrive in Miracle. The audience deserve some of the math that led them there," he said.
Talking about the changes in season 2 compared to season 1, he said, "In the first season, the characters didn't know what to do to feel better. Now I think they're all much more specifically drawn towards - What can I do to put this behind me? How can I love again? How can I trust again?"
The story has been interesting so far and it seems Lindelof has got better ideas for the future of the show.
