Did you watch the first season of The Following on Fox last year?
Oh wow. It was one of the scariest things I have watched in a long time. It seems appropriate to talk about Scary Stuff given that we are coming up on Halloween.
Kevin Bacon returned to the small screen as former FBI agent Ryan Hardy. Hardy quit the bureau after being stabbed in the heart by serial killer Joe Carroll. Yeah, he caught Carroll, but it kinda sorta destroyed his life. He fell in love with Carroll's wife, Claire, while solving the case, and that didn't turn out so well. He wrote a book about Carroll that sold like crazy, but he is still in a Bad Place when the show started. Someone on YouTube put together a five minute explanation of what happened last season to help you catch up...
At the end of that season Hardy caught up to Carroll again and it "seemed" like Carroll died in an explosion. But did he really??? And Carroll's cult is still alive and well. One of Ryan's neighbors and trusted "friends" is actually a Carroll follower. In the last few minutes she breaks into Ryan's apartment with a knife. Things were not looking good for Ryan and Claire. Can we say Cliffhanger???
So what is the buzz about Season 2?
The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world he did not exist.
