For a prime time show with an actor like Kevin Bacon. This has to be the worst script ever !!!. Fbi agents costantly do dumb stuff. Massive fugitive searches without helicopters and a handful of untrained agents. Totally disgusting.Really miss 24.Won't be watching next season. To the writers , do your research and create a more realistic script. Ughhh
I am sorry but I see Molly coming right after the explosions and Emma is not caught yet too. But as much as I enjoyed James Purefoy acting, I hated it when the EVIL guy of the season comes back again next season. The Walking Dead is doing that too ! Dexter is good in this department, we get a different Villain of the season every year and we know it would be different and it would be great!
The show ironically could be summed up by what Ryan Hardy said to Joe at the end - second rate, just fell short and all those comments.
I think it is confirmed there will be a season 2. I hope the Kevin Williamson and the writers reads on the fans comment and really improved the second season so as not to waste Kevin Bacon !
This show was just terrible. I watched the finale just out of morbid curiosity. But I had given up on the show a while back. Boy did I regret wasting my time on such an idiotic show.
OMG! I was hoping, praying wishing that my screen would go black and their would be no molly, no stabbing claire ( Please let her live!)
I was really really shocked. Stared at the screen for another minute and was like 'did that just happend?' I Can't wait for season 2 And im really interested what they will do.
Also, I don't think Joe is death. It just can't be
I didn't forget about the girl next door (and she was a good twist on what that phrase is supposed to mean). I just can't believe that the fbi didn't insist on greater security for Hardy and Claire because they would be great focus of whatever revenge from followers.
I think Joe had his son kidnapped because he hoped that the story would go in a different direction. He hoped to reconcile with Claire and ride off into some mysterious murderous sunset with them. But he did say that the story had changed. And what father wouldn't want to be with his only child.
It was a fine finale and given all the literary parallels, I don't think that it could have gone much differently.
As a kevin bacon fan i hung in there for all 13 episodes. Why did these actors sign up for this project? Please don't suggest a second season! This was not good television.
The Following was creepy enough to pique my interest, and "scary-horror" is not that easy to do on television. But in the end, it totally lost its focus and I found the finale rather unsatisfying in many ways. OK, so Joe's dead..or at least we think he is dead but I could come up with a hundred ways he could have escaped and left the tell-tale signs of his demise, so we shall see. But now Ryan's dead or injured, along with Clair and agent Parker did not live to see another day (or show)...though her death scene was well-lit, airless and creepy to be sure. What's to come? For the life of me, I cannot imagine but there's still that deep yearning to be scared and watch something that truly creeps me out. Like our reviewer, I'm in for season two but only so long as they get a firm grip on what they're doing and stop with the implausible and "out of tune." Here's to better writing for what was a GREAT cast of characters.
When the characters are interesting and intelligent as FBI agents are supposed to be, a well-written script with good actors is enjoyable. So far, the Following has been a major disappointment and last night was the final "nail in the coffin" to play on words for me - again!!
How dumb can an FBI agent really be when he knows the cult members are still out there and are more than willing to follow through with their "chapters" of Joe's novel or story. How can the writers portray the FBI in a more negative way when it comes to common sense and the supposed understanding of how devoted Joe's cult members really are to him or his memory? C'mon, not having a guard or leaving the door unlocked and exposing himself and Claire to danger or death?
I guess the door is now open for "Winona" to return to Justified as a regular if season 2 is not picked up.
Disappointing to say the least. Has the FBI ever heard of helicopters to get to Debra? Half the season they spent looking for Claire's son the other trying to find her and they aren't even united in the finale? Characters like Jacob Debra and Roderrick had huge impacts in the show and they had such pointless meaningless deaths. Hardy didn't know Jacob was dead so wouldn't he be worried that both he and Emma could still be trying to kill him or Claire after they find out Joe is dead? I mean he left his door unlocked...
This series just really ran out of gas at the end, and the reason is that the writing just failed. There is a BIG difference between a very well-written show (i.e., Breaking Bad), and a show like The Following, that is just so full of holes and inconsistencies that it completely distracts you from getting into the story or the characters. The whole thing with Parker being buried alive was just silly. Not only did they kill off one of the most interesting characters, but that whole sequence just made no sense, considering that her being buried along with Joe's book was critical to Joes' "master plan". I mean, HOW did they know they would be able to catch her so they could bury her there with the book? They captured her almost by accident at that shelter, thereâ€™s no way they could have counted on that. And yet it was a huge part of their plan.? Just silly and bad, bad writing. That is just one of dozens of examples of that sort of thing. In the end, it was just a WEAK story. I wonâ€™t bother tuning in next season.
