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!

Starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, Shawn Ashmore, Sam Underwood, Valerie Cruz, Jessica Stroup, and Michael Irby
FOX

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.

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!

  |  @   |  

Seriously, what DID we do for entertainment before the Internet? I mean, now big time A-list stars go on YouTube and spoof their own work for our enjoyment. Take the new Funny AND Die video based on FOX’s hit thriller, The Following.

Star of the television series Kevin Bacon sits with Oz and Battle Creek star Dean Winters at the Steiner Studio cafeteria talking about his show. “I play this FBI agent Ryan Hardy who’s hunting a cult of serial killers.” “Sounds hilarious.” Bacon describes how working on the show feeds his paranoia and of course the second he leaves for the bathroom, Dean answers his ringing phone and of course Joe Carroll himself in on the phone from prison. James Purefoy revels in the bit as he tells Dean how he is going to sic his following on him.
