A brilliant and charismatic, yet psychotic serial killer communicates with other active serial killers and activates a cult of believers following his every command.

I am finally starting to get the feel, the vibe, if you will, of The Following. Usually when I start a new series it takes me a couple of episodes to get in the groove of things; to start investing in the characters and their various struggles. I found myself at that point during “Mad Love”. I am really starting to enjoy the show. After last weeks shaky second episode I think the series is really starting to find itself. This episode reveals more of the dynamics between Paul, Jacob and Emma; a kind of bizarre love triangle, if one could call it that. Ryan (Kevin Bacon) and fellow agent, Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore) are after Maggie; a cohort and follower of Joe Carroll (James Purefoy. Maggie it seems has tracked down Ryans sister and makes a deal; his life for hers. As is common with the show, flashbacks reveal the history of the characters, fleshing out the action at hand. We also learn a little more of Ryan and Claire’s past. Overall this episode was a solid effort, bravo Bacon! Till next week.
