Also can we please give Melissa McBride an Emmy??? Her expressions and body language were perfect during the entire episode!! Norman was pretty awesome too. I wish I could find a gif of her face when she opens the door. So many emotions flew across her face I’m that moment. And that gasp for breath before she started crying. *dead*
Where Stevens was meticulous in his low-key intensity in Noah Hawley’s extravagantly imaginative take on Marvel Comics-heroics, Plaza was daringly florid as the show’s most slippery Big Bad. This was a role that could easily have gone over the top, but Plaza — who more than proved she could do a lot more than maintain the comic poker face she wore in Parks and Recreation — gave her performance a theatrical flair.
Nora from The Leftovers is one of the greatest female characters ever written for TV and I just fucking love that the series finale was all about her! Fuck yes, give Carrie Coon an Emmy already please!!
Emmy likes to think that she can handle herself. She’s independent, smart, confident, and, if nothing else, not afraid to speak the truth… most of the time, anyways. There are two exceptions: anytime she has to interact with her family for more than a ten minute phone call, and absolutely anything to do with Harry Styles. So when she gets dumped two days before her sister’s wedding and has to convince Harry to be her date, the two exceptions collide, throwing Emmy through a loop. It’s safe to say nothing ends the way she thought.
