There's definitely some entertainment value to be had by a show with so many flaws, lol. Literally nothing on this show makes sense, which I think is some of the charm. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad.
Does anyone even know how Luke and Mark ended up at The Inn? After Lilly got shot, they ran off. Then they show up at a random Inn in the middle of nowhere just in time to intercept claire? Did I miss something?
I was ALMOST ok with the whole "we need to team up to save the girl" schtick and the only reason is because I think the guy who plays the twins is an awesome adversary - they're so damn unhinged that putting Ryan, Claire, and Joe under their thumb actually made for an interesting scene for a change. But everything else in the episode was just a bunch of "oh come on!" Everything except Ryan slugging the blonde follower like a full on man. That **** was hilarious and deserved.
Speaking of Followers, in the 'previously on' they showed Joe asking the guy outside the church if "knows what to do". Later in the episode he nods to this guy as Ryan sneaks him out (don't get me started on that), then the guy crashes Ryan's car to free Joe and Joe murders him and takes his car. Soooooo.... A: did Joe use his infallible powers of precognition to know how he'd be getting out of the church, and put a man on the outside to help? And what exactly was the point of having that guy cause a major car accident (that could have killed joe), only to kill him... Was it just to get his gun? Seems extreme but that's literally the only thing I can think of. Unless they accidentally edited out a scene somewhere that explains the point fo that entire sequence.
And then after everything, Claire is all "you did the right thing by not killing him"... WHAT? You just came out of fully covert
witness protection to convince Ryan that he had
to kill Joe, and now you're glad he didn't? And then you just bounce?? hahahaha
I don't know what they can come up with that will get me to stick with season three. Only reason I came back this time was because TV sucks right now so it didn't take any effort to watch it. But it's just so poorly done. Every episode of this show is those episodes in the middle of each season of 24 where the writers have clearly lost control of their story and everything just goes bats*** crazy. The difference is that with "24", these episodes (known as Amnesiatown and Cougartown) are book-ended but excellent TV (IMO), where as the Following is JUST those middle parts.
