The Following: “Chapter Two”: IGN Review

Episode 2 of Kevin Williamson’s serial-killer/cult horror series The Following focuses on the search for Joe Carroll’s kidnapped son Joey, and the unfolding consequences of the “activation” of his cult.

“Chapter 2” also introduces Annie Parisse’s Agent Debra Parker. Alcatraz’s Jeananne Goossen was featured in the pilot as FBI Agent Jennifer Mason, but, as often happens; the role was reworked for series. Goossen did fine work in the series opener. Her hostile Agent Mason ultimately grated a bit, though. She also added very little in terms of the forward momentum of the story. I suppose Mason was meant to act as another obstacle for Kevin Bacon’s former FBI Agent Ryan Hardy, but the character felt more like dead weight. (The Following, TV) 7.9/10

This is going to keep me guessing each week. I'm not going to know who he can trust either. Even the FBI agents are suspicious to me. I'm really liking this show.
