    Along paranoid lines, I fear that this show is giving ideas to the nuts out there.

    Or SOMETHING! That whole scene was just bad, in every imagineable way. Plus, if somebody is pouring gasoline on me, I'm thinking that I am smelling gasoline so I cannot imagine that I'm just standing there looking stupid.

    Then, he's rolling around trying not to die and nobody would start covering him trying to put the fire out?

    But more strange, to me, is just how all those people were standing around like they were.

    Maybe all those people standing around watching are also part of the following.

    That's the grand revelation in the series finalé. Kevin Bacon is the ONLY GUY ON EARTH who's not part of the Following.

    You're joking
    I fear that that is the show's actual premise :eek:

    Only like Ronald Moore in BSG the writers will only realize this as their only out as they're writing the last 2 episodes

    It's going to kill the show. Audiences won't have it. If they keep it up, I'm not going to be sorry it dies, either.

    Teaching the boy to kill made the series more personal and more menacing. It's a good move if they don't overdo it. Moving onto higher order animals that are commonly considered pets such as dogs would be a mistake and would alienate viewers. I bet they will move onto some other psychological way of conditioning the boy. I also suspect he's not going to remain a prisoner forever. That plot line will get old.

    The fire scene happened very quickly, I think folks are being too critical of the bystanders. It's going to take people a few moments to react and figure out what just happened. My first thought would be that it was somehow part of the act. By the time I figured out it was real, the guy would be gone.

    That's what I was thinking. People may have thought it was part of a show (at least for a minute).
