The Following Season 1 Finale: “The Final Chapter”

So this season has been a long and winding road. Some of it was definitely better than others, but The Following started off with a bang and ended much the same way. As much as I was sure, three episodes...

The Following Episode 14: “The End is Near”

I loved this episode for so many reasons. Everything played out so freaking well and… Let’s just get into it. First, though, I still don’t get Carroll’s thing with watching...

The Following Episode 5: “The Seige”

I have to say, just when I think The Following can’t get any better, it goes and proves me wrong. Now we’ve moved past the AAAAAH screaming and into the I’m-so-tense-my-back-muscles-hurt. Let’s...
