  • THE PO-PO VS. THE POE-POES

    The Following "Chapter Two" Review: Jordy Remembers About the Rabbits

    This show so far is like watching a baby horse being born: It's gross, gory, kind of a train wreck, lacks grace, and, when it tries to stand up, it's shaky at best.

  • Episode Summary

    As the search for Carroll's missing son intensifies, the team is joined by Special Agent Debra Parker, an expert on alternative religions. Meanwhile, tension starts to rise between Joey's kidnappers as Paul, who pretended to be Jacob's lover for years, starts to feel jealous over his relationship with Emma.

      Chapter Two was a phenomenal follow up to pilot of The Following. I really enjoyed watching because the story was well written and had many twists and turns and surprises. The character development was very good and the plot progression was well paced and captivating. There are many levels and a lot of depth to the series so far. This series takes a unique perspective on the subject matter. I liked how everything played out so far and I certainly look forward to watching what happens next!!!!!!!!!moreless

      This episode was much better than the pilot, less caricatural, more subtle, the acting was way better (thanks god they get rid of that cop girl), and i like where it's going between the guru and Bacon. He's creating a heros by creating a story around him, all of them are part of the creation, that's make more sense for a cult, they have a goal: twisted art performance. I want to see more !moreless

      I have loved this show from watching "Inside The Following" This show only after 2 episode's just gets better. I also love the flashbacks which tells us how we came to 2013, brilliant writing. Love It, also a fan of Edgar Alan Poe, though Poe wasn't a serial killer.

      Maybe I don't watch enough of these type of shows but this show is intense for me. Will it attract a "following" with such a dark theme and people being killed each week? No themes of hope or redemption? I guess I am hooked myself but I won't be able to sleep for awhile. Sure makes a difference watching it on the dvr and not having to watch commercials too.

      • Ryan: Where's Mason?
        Debra: She's on her way back to Quantico. Apparently she put a former agent alone in a room with Joe Carroll, let him break three of his fingers. Turns out that's a no-no.
        Ryan: Three, huh?

      • Mike: Good news, no dead puppies. Bad news... I think it's time to use that word nobody wants to use.
        Debra: So, we have a cult.

      • Debra: Carroll's using Poe's work as a religion. He's speaking to people through Gothic Romanticism. The pathology of today's Internet techno-bred minds. He's created a new--a vacancy in our humanity. Find the ones with additional disorders--jackpot. Enter a handsome, charismatic man who can touch them, make them feel their lives for the first time. He conditions them. The only way to truly live is to kill. Or some crap like that.

      • Jacob: Joe said you'd be my type.
        Emma: What's your type?
        Jacob: Special.

      • Claire: Kiss me. Yeah, yeah, you heard me, I'm single, so...
        Ryan: Are you sure you want me to kiss you?
        Claire: Uh, yeah, I'm very sure. I--I've been sure for a long time.
        Ryan: Well, if you're sure...
        Claire: I--unless--but--are you sure? Because if...
        Ryan: I don't think first kisses are supposed to have this much discussion.
        Claire: I know, it takes the spontaneity out of it.
        Ryan: Yeah, it kind of does.
        Claire: Did I just ruin our first kiss?
        Ryan: I think it can be salvaged.

      • Ryan: She almost died. The woman you profess to love.
        Carroll: Umm, yeah, but she didn't. I was hoping you'd save her. A heroic victory by the leading man cements the love story.
        Ryan: What if I hadn't arrived in time?
        Carroll: Well, that's what makes the story so unpredictable. Toughen up, Ryan. You're dealing with depraved minds, sick and twisted. Jordy was a mere--well, puppy, compared to some of the games I have in store for you.
