The Following 1.15 “The Final Chapter”

the-following-season-finale-poe-yourself-a-drink1I can’t remember if I’ve already said this or not but this show drives me crazy. Each episode I feel that they do something stupid which causes me to yell at the TV. Ha! Not really but I might do that in my head.

I’ve decided I’m not going to recap everything I watch. Takes too long and sometimes I don’t have time for that. If I do, I will.

***SPOILER ALERT***

I did not expect Parker to die. I thought during the entire episode that they would save her in time. Boy was I wrong. So that was sad. And just shooting that guy in the head was way to easy. I was hoping one of them would either save him for later torture or put him in the coffin and cover it up. Ya know, that whole eye for an eye idea.

It was the same cat and mouse game. Annoying really.

Loved the scene where Joe take the broken ankle guy out into the main room, just to stab him repeatedly while Clare watched. That will teach Clare not to take credit for something she didn’t do. Joe was looking rough but that’s to be expected since he was stabbed and then stabbed again with a fork.

For me, the last two minutes was the best. When Ryan and Clare were in his apartment. She’s in the bathroom and he hears a noise. Investigates only to get himself stabbed by Molly. Then Clare sees Ryan bleeding on the floor and screams (not a good idea) and Molly comes up from behind and stabs Clare in the back. The End.

  • Great way to end a season but where does season 2 go from here?
  • Did Joe really die or did he somehow escape?
  • Will Molly be the one they hunt down next season?

Why The Following Just Might Be the Most Insulting Show on TV

This article sums up exactly what I have been feeling each and every episode. I am one of those who say “oh come on”, for example, why on several accounts does the team split up to walk around a dark building or what they know can’t be an empty house. Never split up! I watch enough scary movies to know that simple fact. There have been many cases where I have noticed the stupid things they do or don’t do to not catch Joe. But I still love the show and I’ll still be “following” it. 🙂

The Following may very well be the most insulting show on television.

It’s not that the Fox drama—about the hunt for an escaped serial killer and the community of wannabe serial killers that he’d built up around him—actively insults those who tune in. Indeed, it’s a relatively smart, tense drama peppered with references to Edgar Allen Poe and cultural and technological concepts that aren’t necessarily real (or logical). However, every single episode since the pilot has hinged on one basic concept: The good guys are apparently idiots.

At first, I was okay with this. I could accept that law-enforcement might be fallible; otherwise, the show would be an hour of Kevin Bacon’s former FBI agent Ryan Hardy talking to James Purefoy’s creepy-yet-charming psychopath Joe Carroll, explaining that there was no way that an imprisoned serial killer would’ve been able to use the Internet to set up thousands of websites to gain…
