The Following

And we thought Joe Carroll was trouble. Even though the cult leader who gave Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) his raison d'être is now a dead man rotting, things haven't gotten any easier for Team Hardy on The Following. Ryan's back on the bottle, Max's (Jessica Stroup) infidelity has sent Tom (Gbenga Akinnagbe) down a very fatal path, and two wackjobs are trailing Mike (Shawn Ashmore). None of this can end well, right?

"We started this season with [Team Hardy] having to deal with the sins of the past," says executive producer Marcos Siega, hinting that their ultimate penance may be at hand. "There is an escalation as you get closer to the end of the season."

That sounds ominous in a yeah, someone is definitely dying way, and in this exclusive trailer from Monday night's two-hour episode (8/7c, Fox), EP Alexi Hawley gives us even more reasons to worry about the fates of our faves once madman Theo (Michael Ealy) teams up with fellow killers Mark (Sam Underwood) and Daisy (Ruth Kearney). "We go to places you're not going to expect," he says of the alliance of evil forces. "And we put a whole lot of people in jeopardy who you don't want bad things to happen to."

So who do you think it's going to be? Mike? Max? Maybe Gwen? Tell us in the comments below!
