Fox’s “The Following” kicked off its second season last Sunday night and it was incredible. It also scored the highest ratings ever coming after the NFC Championship football game.
Creepy, murderous “followers” of serial killer Joe Carroll are still out to honor him and kill for him. However, now his loyal group has to contend with copycat groups hellbent on violence and they even have Carroll masks.
Emma, one of the Carroll’s followers and lovers from season one, is back and was rather subdued in the season two premiere. And, while I love the character, her punk look has to go!
My favorite new character in season two is Luke played by English actor Sam Underwood. You might remember him as the protegé of “Dexter” in the Showtime series’ final season.
Without giving away any real spoilers, Underwood was amazing and made creepy, sadistic, and sick look sexy. I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of Underwood in “The Following”. However, because no one is safe on this show, except maybe Kevin Bacon’s “Ryan Hardy”, I can’t say how long Underwood will be on the show. But, Emma survived all of last season!
If you missed the season two premiere, Fox is airing it again Monday night (January 27, 8 p.m. ET) before an all new episode.
