What’s Worth Watching: The Following Goes Hunting For Killers
The Following, “The Hunt” (Monday, April 6, 8/7c, Fox)
With the show’s previous Big Bad, Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), headed for execution in seven days (that took long enough!), Ryan (Kevin Bacon) and Mike (Shawn Ashmore) are shifting their focus to a new and ominous threat – someone who isn’t going to try and form the bonds that Joe is still trying to have with Ryan (His “I want us back” moment from last week was especially chilling). Perhaps it is Theo (Michael Ealy)? He was teased to be this season’s main baddie, and revealed last episode as Dr. Strauss’ (Gregg Henry) cyber-inclined student. However, the student surpassed the master when he murdered Strauss, inevitably taking over the game. Meanwhile, Max (Jessica Stroup) rejoins the force only to get closer to danger in the form of Theo, if that is even his real name. You can bet that’ll hit the fan soon.
