“The Following” season 2, episode 8: “The Messenger” premieres tonight on Fox.
In this week’s episode, after a tragic turn of events, Ryan attempts to find the man who originally taught Joe to kill, in hopes of finding new answers. Meanwhile, at the compound, Joe tries to get his bearings, while Emma and Mandy wait for him to reveal his new plan.
“The Following” is a TV drama starring Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy, and Natalie Zea. It is currently in its second season.
The FBI estimates there are more than 300 active serial killers in the United States. What would happen if these killers had a way of communicating and connecting with each other? What if they were able to work together and form alliances across the country? What if one brilliant psychotic serial killer was able to bring them all together and activate a following? When notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (Purefoy) escapes from death row and embarks on a new killing spree, the FBI calls former agent Ryan Hardy (Bacon) to consult on the case. Having since withdrawn from the public eye, Hardy was responsible for Carroll’s capture nine years ago.
“The Following” season 2, episode 8: “The Messenger” airs at 9 p.m. EST on Fox. Spoiler video below.
