The Following - Chapter 2 - OAD 1/28/13 S01E02 SPOILERS

I'm surprised that there is no thread for this.

I liked the episode. I'll give it a few more before making up my mind.

Few comments:

* They got rid of the young female FBI agent. Too bad because she was cute. I liked her in Alcatraz.
* I admit it. I jumped when the guy in the creepy mask jumped Ryan
* What's up with the new FBI giving creepy cult master Allan Poe's book?

I was expecting something to happen with the masks and I still jumped out of my skin!

Who was the guy who got lit on fire?

I like the suspense and the show, don't need the graphic gore, and a little less of Kevin Bacon with his "deer in the headlights" stare

I was so happy to see a new FBI lady- we thought the younger one was terrible and really liked the new gal.
Only to see her in cahoots with Carroll.
Didn't see THAT coming.

Better than the pilot IMO.

I thought that he was just a random person/victim.

Random guy for now anyway. They did say his name (Mike?). One of the (former) gay guys said something like "they found Emma's house but Mike got away".

I meant the victim was random, not the Poe mask wearing firestarter.

I'm not sure the new FBI girl is in cahoots with him, there was another cop present when she gave him the book.

Don't why they would show her giving him the book unless she was a follower. But it could be a red herring.

To make the viewer think that very thing. I think she is playing him, trying to gain trust, to make him think she is a follower get info out of him.

I thought it was 'Rick', but he might have said 'gaunt'.

If there are 3 masks sitting on a shelf and a 4th not on a shelf....I'd like to think I'd notice.

I'm liking the show but I'm getting a "24 setup a perimeter" kind of vibe with everybody slipping through.

My recording cut out just a minute early--I guess this is what I missed. Earlier, though, she seemed a little crazy on the subject of murder. I was suspicious of her then.

Yeah, an entire house is full of cops and yet someone breaks in or out. I'd like to think they could protect someone better than that with that much warning.

Wouldn't be the first "another cop" on his team.
But I do like the idea that she is playing him- I guess that will be the mystery.

Maybe a relative of Jordy's? A way to keep him quiet?

I got the feel that the guy that got burned was a lawyer coming out of a court house...or at least that's what I recall.

It's a thick book. It might not be filled with just pages.

If that's the case, I would've expect her to bake him a cake instead.

the guy slipped in when he had his back turned... kevin bacon walked in the room and there were 3 masks... and he touched the one on the end, then he turned, and then when he turned back, the guy was standing next to the first mask he touched... so it's not like he was there the whole time

i don't think it was '24' egregious... each time was meticulously planned out and caught everyone by surprise.. they've been 3 steps ahead of the police the whole time

i'm not sure what the 3 times were, here's what i can think of:
1. when the fake gay couple kidnapped the girl in episode 1 through the closet and escaped from their garage

2. when jerry security guard slipped in from the ceiling.. he was obviously lying in wait before the cops came

3. when the creepy poe mask guy ambushed kevin bacon... there was only one cop with him in the front.

i'm loving this show. not typical network fare.. something that would be on TNT or even hbo. i wish it was on hbo... might have seen some sorority girl nudity already....

Yeah but you also would have seen nude bacon.

Could have been. I don't think he is just killing randomly.

I actually got suspicious of the ex wife. The fight in jail seemed like an excuse to slip him something. I think she is going to turn out to be a follower and she knows her son is safe. It's all an act.

Yeah, this is what I said in the premiere ep thread (in a spoiler tag):

So the cult expert lady is in on it, right? She was the one at the end, giving him the Poe book? I admit it takes me a long time to remember all the different characters on new shows… and I was only 99.9999% that the look between them meant she was in on it.


I think she's got to be in on it.. Good, I guess it wasn't as dumb a question as I thought. I thought it was "obvious" she was in on it, and I was giving it too much doubt.

Hmm. I don't buy that. I guess only time will tell.

Yeah, it was WAY too obvious something was up for anything (sinister) to actually be up. They're messing with us.

Which is exactly why the ex wife would be such a surprise. Nobody is going to suspect the woman with the kidnapped kid. She is a Literature professor too right?
