    Yes!! What happened to Claire? Where is she? Did she die? Joey is in the witness protection program - either with his grandmother, or with his grandmother's approval - what the heck?

    sorry about that- let's try this
    On Jan. 19, the season premiere of ‘The Following’ definitely brought some twists — two huge ones, to be exact. Both of them made me realize why this show is one of the scariest on TV . . . and that season two will be even more disturbing as season one.
    Spoiler alert — if you haven’t yet watched the season two premiere of The Following (shame on you), you may not want to continue reading. Or, if you like spoilers, click on in!


    ‘The Following’ Season 2 Twists — Shocking & Terrifying
    It’s not a surprise that I’m still losing sleep over the season two premiere of The Following — it began with the death of Claire (Natalie Zea) and once again a heartbroken Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon). After getting over that initial pissed-off-shock feeling, I then moved on to being terrified.

    We were introduced to a new villain this season since Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) appeared to die on the season one finale. Luke (Sam Underwood) took over the role of remaking Edgar Allen Poe‘s style — killing an innocent girl, dressing her body up, dancing with her, and even raiding her fridge (which as any girl knows, is the most annoying part of it all). He then dressed her corpse in the white dress — a perfect Poe reference.

    Oh, did I mention that Luke has a super-sexy twin? Yes, he’s terrifying and we I was totally shocked when Luke is talking to someone in the shower and they cut out to his twin. One is more evil than the other — but the more innocent one is still part of Carroll’s extremely terrifying clan and has this really creepy, quite grin.

    Joe Carroll Or Daryl?
    While Ryan Hardy has enlisted his niece Max Hardy (Jessica Stroup) to help him find out what’s going on with Joe, we got to see it loud and clear. Joe’s legacy is living through two separate followings — the one that Luke formed and the one that Emma (Valorie Curry) is leading. Oh yeah, Emma is still there but is now rocking a pink mohawk and a nose ring.

    However, the most shocking part of the episode is that at the very end we are re-introduced to Joe Carroll (yes, he survived that fire). Now he is going under the name of Daryl, and is hiding his stunning scary face with a huge beard.

    He’s living out in the middle of nowhere, but Ryan Hardy isn’t far behind — he’s already got some of his cult to admit that Joe’s alive, and that he had a trap door in the lighthouse all along, and had someone waiting to pick him up.

    Honestly, I knew he would live — the show is about him. I was hesitant that I would be annoyed when I heard that he had survived though, since in the final scenes of season one it was so definite. But the way they revealed that he had lived and had a plan the whole time was very Joe Carroll like and proved once again that Kevin Williamson is a completely genius.

    Overall, the premiere was suspenseful, witty, and of course terrifying. While I may be a little more cautious on the subway now, over all I can’t wait for this season — with Luke and his twin taking on Ryan, a pissed off Emma, who by the way still thinks Joe is dead, and Joe being alive and well in the woods, this season is bound to be even better than the first.

    The first episode of season 2 answered a few questions and created a few more, as it should be to keep the viewers coming back for more.

    @Haunted The first episode is going to be repeated on Monday night right before the new episode, if you want to see what you missed the first time around.

    Thank you.

    Somehow we missed the first, and I don't think we recorded it.

    Okay. So here's what happened. We didn't realize it at the time, but our DVR did not record the first 15 or so minutes of the episode, so we missed all of that! Thankfully, Spidey let me know that tonight they were showing it again, so we just watched it. Makes much more sense now! Dang DVR.

    I think I read someplace that the sports game ended early and they started The Following earlier than scheduled. This maybe why your DVR didn't catch it. Glad you are caught up now.

    I just started this and totally hooked and loving it. It's extremely tense and I pause often to see how much time is left. It makes me nervous, but it's so good!

    I've heard so much about this show, and have been meaning to watch it.
    I'm home and snowbound, and it's on Netflix.....sounds like a sign to me.

    Wow, finished up this first season, and the second season is already in progress so need to wait for it to come to Netflix.

    I loved the villain. He was fabulous. I really really had to suspend disbelief with Kevin Bacon's character being given such free rein as a consultant to constantly talk the FBI into situations -- over and over again -- that always
    got people killed or hurt! Once maybe, but they wouldn't just keep allowing him to do this crap. Even when he goes off script on his own, they would have reined his ass in. AND, yes, I know many of the Carolltonians would ONLY speak to him, but after he got the information they needed, the FBI would have curbed him.

    skimom2 Just moseyin' through...

    I was SO close to giving up on this one at the end of episode three, not because it's not well done but because it makes me so uneasy. The end of epi 3 went beyond that and made me feel... icky. I cheated a little and asked my daughter (who has finished the season) if that story trend continued--can't deal with them
    teaching a little kid to kill
    . Maybe I'm sensitive to that because I have my own 8 year old. Once she reassured me it didn't happen again, I've kept going. It still makes me uneasy, though...
