Last week on Mayans MC, we were reintroduced into Kurt Sutter’s world of biker gangs, this time on the Latin side. The Mayans MC were featured in the Sons of Anarchy pilot, and in return, the Sons (with a new leader) had a cameo in this pilot. Young Ezekial (EZ) Reyes (JD Pardo) is a prospect with a brother in the club, a butcher father (not of humans) who is sucked in somehow, a son and an ex who are now the family of a cartel leader, and a detective to whom he slips info to. This kid is in all kinds of trouble. And not because he’s in an MC, where everyone shoots up rivals or that they sell drugs through a dress shop front. Excited yet?

Warning! Spoilers for episode 2 below.

  |  @   |  

The Following
Season 3 Episode 7: “The Hunt”
Created by Kevin Williamson
Written by Liz Sczudlo
Starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Shawn Ashmore, Sam Underwood, Valerie Cruz, Jessica Stroup, and Michael Irby
FOX
Air Date: Monday, April 6th, 2015, 9:00pm

Try not to fall too in love with any villains on this season of The Following. After Arthur Strauss (Gregg Henry) appeared to arise the new Bid Bad, he was unceremoniously killed off by his “best student” Theo (Michael Eale). Now with Mark Gray (Sam Underwood) on the run, and Daisy (Ruth Kearney) disappeared, we are left with Strauss’s two remaining proteges, Theo and Duncan (Tim Guinee). Of course we still have Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) awaiting the death penalty. Hopefully there’s an escape in our future.

TV Review: The Following 3.6 “Reunion”
  |  @   |  

The Following
Season 3 Episode 6: “Reunion”
Created by Kevin Williamson
Directed by Mary Harron
Starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Shawn Ashmore, Sam Underwood, Valerie Cruz, Jessica Stroup, and Michael Irby
FOX
Air Date: Monday, March 30th, 2015, 9:00pm

5 words. “What took you so long?” I know Joe, trust me I feel your pain. While no one can say this season of The Following has been boring, it has lacked a certain something thus far. A show never short on evil doers, Season 3 has lacked the “Big Bad.” Mark Gray (Sam Underwood) is totally bonkers having amassed the personality of his dead twin, and Arthur Strauss (Gregg Henry) is a tad blah as the show’s new villainous puppeteer. Thankfully, all the pressure has gotten to Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and he’s returned to seek advice from the man he said he’d never see again… Joe Carroll (the awesome James Purefoy). Their talk comes with conditions: Ryan needs something to catch Strauss. Joe wants what he always wants: More Ryan Hardy. “Tell me something Ryan; in your dreams, am I in them?” Oh, I’m so happy he’s back!

TV Review: The Following 3.4 “Home” & 3.5 “A Hostile Witness”
  |  @   |  

The Following
Season 3 Episode 4: “Home” and Episode 5 “A Hostile Witness”
Created by Kevin Williamson
Written by Liz Sczudlo (3.4) and Michael McGrale (3.5)
Starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Shawn Ashmore, Sam Underwood, Valerie Cruz, Jessica Stroup, and Michael Irby
FOX
Air Date: Monday, March 23rd, 2015, 8:00pm

A two-hour dose of the weekly insanity, The Following starts with Kyle (Hunter Parrish) and Daisy (Ruth Kearney) “accidentally” shoving an innocent guy into moving traffic. Last week we learned of some kind of higher evil than Mark. Mark (Sam Underwood) is left a shell of himself as his plans to foil Ryan Hardy and the agents who killed his family keep blowing up in his face. He’s gone from diabolical maniac to sad-faced tag-a-long in just four episodes. It’s a tribute to Underwood’s acting prowess that Mark remains this compelling.
