Air Date: Monday, May 18th, 2015, 8:00pm

Last night marked the end for one of television’s most vicious crime dramas, The Following. Last week’s penultimate episode set the stage for one final showdown between Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and cyber genius serial killer Theo (Michael Ealy). A trade of Theo’s sister Penny (Megalyn Echikunwoke) for Agent Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore), ended with Penny dead and Theo hot for revenge, with Daisy (Ruth Kearney) very reluctantly at his side. All other bad guys in this season’s cornucopia are now dealt with after the scorned lover/accidental murderer/all around bad FBI agent Tom (Gbenga Akinnagbe) died, as did Mark Gray. Mark’s death hurt, as I was such a huge Sam Underwood fan. He carried two seasons, doubling as twins Luke and Mark, and sometimes splitting their personalities. His death came via gunshot after surprising Mike and Max (Jessica Stroup) but not before leaving Mike a bloody mess. Ryan knows he’s about to be a father. Will he live to see his child born? Will Strauss’s other followers play a significant role? Will the ghost of Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) have one last quiet moment with soulmate Ryan? Time to say goodbye… to The Following.

The Following
Season 3 Episode 10: “Evermore”

Starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Shawn Ashmore, Sam Underwood, Valerie Cruz, Jessica Stroup, Michael Ealy, Zuleikha Robinson
FOX
Air Date: Monday, April 27th, 2015, 9:00pm

Last week on The Following, Ryan Hardy’s current nemesis met his arch nemesis when Theo (Michael Ealy) spoke with Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) through a prison guard avatar. Theo needed Joe to help him find Strauss’s other disciples, and in exchange he promised to kill Ryan (Kevin Bacon) and give Joe eternal infamy. Joe, however, had other plans, dispatching of Theo’s accomplice and claiming Ryan as his own. It’s all rather touching in some strange horrific way. Tonight, Joe Carroll walks the Green Mile… yeah right!

Do not continue if you haven’t watched last night’s episode – definite spoilers!

The Following
Season 3 Episode 9: “Kill The Messenger”

Written by Barry O’Brien
Starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Shawn Ashmore, Sam Underwood, Valerie Cruz, Jessica Stroup, Michael Ealy
FOX
Air Date: Monday, April 20th, 2015, 9:00pm

Before we get to the review of The Following 3.9 “Kill The Messenger,” here’s a quick recap of last week: THEO IS F@%KING NUTS!!! Sorry, but yeah, it’s true. Michael Ealy‘s portrayal of Theo reached epic proportions last week when his identity was discovered after murdering his wife’s best friend and framing her husband. His response was to “deal” with the situation and that included murdering his wife and leaving his kids to die. Kids saved, Theo put Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) on notice – come after him, and his loved ones will be next…”piece by piece.”

TV Review: The Following 3.8 “Flesh & Blood”
  |  @   |  

The Following
Season 3 Episode 8: “Flesh & Blood”
Created by Kevin Williamson
Directed by Marcos Siega
Written by Michael McGrale, Mary Leah Sutton
Starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Shawn Ashmore, Sam Underwood, Valerie Cruz, Jessica Stroup, Michael Ealy
FOX
Air Date: Monday, April 13th, 2015, 9:00pm

Before we get to the review of The Following 3.8 “Flesh & Blood,” here’s a quick recap of last week.

We got a clear vision of Theo, the psychotic “best student” of Arthur Strauss. Having murdered the good doctor, Theo (Michael Ealy) demonstrated his skills as a cyber serial killer by sitting right out in the open in front Max Hardy’s investigation, killing and framing everyone in his path. Max (Jessica Stroup) barely avoided joining his kill-list.

The Following 3.8 “Flesh & Blood” review: We begin Episode 8 with chief suspect Tucker Moore being ceremoniously dispatched by Theo… in a kitchen meat grinder! What complicates Theo is that he appears to be the perfect family man. Sure his wife suspects him of cheating, but not mass murder. Few characters I can think of on television have ever had the drastic duality of Theo. One minute he’s throwing his wife a surprise party, the next murdering her best friend and husband. See… I told you he wasn’t cheating on her!

When we last left Ryan Hardy and his world of insanity, Mark Gray (Sam Underwood) and his torturous henchmen forced Agent Jeffrey Clarke (Felix Solis) to broadcast their message to the world of Hardy and friends’ guilt in Lily Gray’s “murder.” Clarke was then brutally killed and left in a gift box for Hardy, Max (Jessica Stroup) and Mike (Shawn Ashmore) to find. Hardy (Kevin Bacon) awakes to bloody nightmares and must face the realizations that the media will be coming for him and his job is on the line. He uses the opportunity to set the media after Mark, a challenge which tests Mark’s last nerve.
