Monday night’s episode of The Following appropriately titled “Sacrifice” was not only surreal but I would say mentally disturbing, not to mention downright awesome!
If you haven’t seen the latest episode of The Following…WARNING! SPOILER ALERT! I would suggest you stop reading now. Otherwise Grissom has come out of the deep dark closet to write the recap! Enjoy! Continue reading Recap: The Following 2×07, “Sacrifice”
The Vampire Diaries returned this week after a 2 week Olympic hiatus with a creepy opening out of a horror movie. As the camera panned over an old swing set to what looks like an abandoned farmhouse, it turns out Damon and Enzo have holed up after Wes injected Damon with a serum turning him into a vampire killer. It has been 8 hours since Damon has last fed and Enzo, not wanting to be his next meal, has turned the man of the house into a vampire for Damon to feed. Upon awakening, Enzo greets the confused man by stating “You’re a vampire, congratulations” and force feeds the man a blood bag before Damon kills him and in a very “Ripper” style rips off his head.

THE FOLLOWING EPISODE 15: THE FINAL CHAPTER REVIEW
By: Nick Kelley
As was left off in last week’s episode of The Following, Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) has left with Claire (Natalie Zea) on a boat, Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and Michael Weston (Shawn Ashmore) are reminded once again about The Masque of the Red Death at the evacuation center, Emma (Valorie Curry) kills Jacob (Nico Tortorella) in a Murders In the Rue Morgue type fashion because she can’t love both Joe and Jacob, and Debra Parker (Annie Parisse) reminds us about a familiar Poe story entitled Premature Burial in which, you guessed it, Debra is buried alive. Wow, that is a lot to soak in for one episode.

“And darkness and decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all.” The Masque of the Red Deathby Edgar Allan Poe.
Or, In Which Joe Has a Very Bad Day, Part II
Havenport is no haven for anyone, nor is it the port in the storm that Joe had imagined. While “The Curse” saw things starting to unravel for Joe, they’re now coming apart like someone’s pulled a thread on a ratty sweater and it’s quickly turning into a ball of nasty yarn.

Quick sidenote: working for lawyers as I do, I gleefully enjoyed the Ziegevolk lawyer being so glib and (considering his toad sweat) literally rather slimy. Is a stereotype a stereotype if it’s true? I simply nodded and pointed at the TV, muttering, “That looks familiar.”

Last week, I asked the Supernatural Gods to give us a one-two punch, and they delivered in this episode. I found this a rich and powerful hour of raw emotion – fear, love, regret, and bittersweet joy. I’m going to go through the episode, then do some picking apart. Please bear with me.
