Who else is watching The Following? I was four episodes behind until last night; now I'm all caught up! I thought for sure that I would have horrible dreams last night after our marathon...whew! (and throw Hannibal on top of that...holy moly...my subconscious was a mess at bedtime!!)
So many tidbits:
The mystery is over...it looks as if Mike is a good guy He got the crap beat out of him and we haven't seen him since. It confuses me that we haven't seen him since his fight club night...its finally revealed that he's not a cult member and then he leaves the show. Hmmm...a bit dissatisfying.
I'm watching this show with my DH, 20yo and 14yo. We all really like it but when you watch the show one episode right after the other, it is very obvious and very grateing how often they make the same exact mistakes. We can almost predict with perfect accuracy at the beginning of each episode who will be killed or who will do what. It reminds me of 24...after years of devouring 24 and being big fans of the show and Keifer...my entire family still jokes about setting a perimeter. Because in 24, every single time they said "secure the perimeter", the bad guy got away! LOL That's how The Following is...they keep walking into the same situations. But, we still enjoy it...even if we are all yelling at the TV! LOL
It did surprise us that Molly was a cult member. Holy crap...what a sick twisted mess THAT is! And to have Joe sitting there watching the porn video of Ryan and Molly have sex...YUCK, I do not even want my mind to go there!!
I'm an idiot...but when Paul was dying on the couch and he was asking Jacob to kill him...I thought he was asking Jacob to kill his parents! I didn't get that he wanted Jacob to kill him until the camera pulled back and it showed Jacob with the pillow. I didn't think killing Paul was that big of a deal...since Paul was obviously dying anyway and there is no way that Jacob would take him to a hospital...so, I didn't think the death scene was that shocking. BUT, the after death scenes are very frightening...wow! Jacob is one scary dude now!! I wish he had hurt Emma more than he did though...she deserves to be slapped around and treated like crap for a bit.
Who else couldn't help but think of Sarah Connor and Terminator when the hunt was on for every Claire Matthews?! LOL My family kept making Terminator jokes through that episode.
I'm disappointed that Agent Parker doesn't have a more stable role...she has sort of evolved into this helpless, selfconscious sidekick instead of the strong leader she started out to be. And although I hate that D.C. stepped in and took over control, I do love Mike Colter (playing Agent Nick Donovan)...oh that man is sooooo beautiful and easy to look at! He's a sometimes character on The Good Wife and I always love it when he's on.
I think Roderick and Joe are about to have a showdown. Roderick is sitting on the edge of a meltdown, for sure!
I think Claire's decision to go willingly to Joe was very realistic...I really believe that any mother would have done the same thing, to just want to go to her son and to feel that she has a better chance (whatever that chance may be) if she is there with Joey.
This is one creepy and graphic show...I'm surprised at how far the network has allowed them to go. Well done...
