'I wonder if Joe will die by season's end, leaving either another character to take his place; or some new cult to spring up to go after Ryan'
This is one crazy theory that will never ever happen. Joe will die but at the Series finale. He is the character that leads the followers, you can't just kill Joe and replace him that's just messed up.
Ryan will be the hero, he will safe Claire and bring her back to Joey. I was really sad that Jacob died but I could have seen it coming because he wasn't a series regular. I think Emma will die to and next season we will meet new followers who will become Joe's accomplices.
(continued) But will there be anything big and surprising enough in this episode to justify the season-long build-up? I doubt it.
@jamieschan: "This show is shameful."
No. Shameless. There's a difference.
Not a terrible episode, but less explosive than I had expected from the previews. Too much talk, not enough action.
The "red death" is a handful of people hacking away with ice picks? Wouldn't the hinted-at bio-weapon have been a bit more ... grand? These guys had paramilitary training. I would they could have come up with something more spectacular.
Joe said that the world would be learning about their story. I thought he meant that the "red death" would be this revelation. Now I think he's just talking about his hallowed novel. If murder is such a wonderful, amazing thing, should he be out doing it rather than writing about it and obsessing over Hardy?
I'm wondering whether the the producers will be able to keep the finale from being a disappointing anti-climax. Yes, Joe will try to make Hardy choose between Claire and Debra. Yes, Joe is going to bite it, leaving Emma (perhaps) to carry Joe's psycho message to the world. But will there be anything big and surprising enough in this episode to justify the season-long build-up? I doubt it.
i really have a hard time seeing what the long term outlook for this series is. Its a fun ride but how in the world could they keep it interesting for more seasons. A new cast other than Bacon every year ?
Especially given the events of the last week, this show has gone from pathetic to unforgivable. It is beyond anyone's suspension of disbelief that a week after the director had his eyes gouged out by one of the carrollers, watching the FBI burst into the front door of the culthouse, not set up a perimeter, get bamboozled, then later get massacred in the darkened gym, kidnapped and buried alive.
This show is shameful.
