THE FOLLOWING ENDS IT’S FIRST SEASON WITH A BANG….LITERALLY

THE FOLLOWING EPISODE 15: THE FINAL CHAPTER REVIEW

By: Nick Kelley

The Following

***SPOILER ALERT***

         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.

REVIEW: The Following’s “Whips & Regret” (1×11), by Anne W. Brennan

Available on Hulu and on fox.com in 8 days (cuz they like to make you beg for it).

One thing’s bothered me from almost the very beginning: why did FBI Agent Parker give Joe Carroll that thick, complete works edition of Poe when Joe was still in the clink?  We’ve learned by now that Joe’s Followers are everywhere and have been “there” for years.  Is Parker a Follower?  She’s supposedly anti-cult because of her parents, but I’m curious … *arched brow*
