'The Following': James Purefoy on Enemy Pacts and 'Amped' Up Finale

THR The Live Feed:
The body count on The Following has been piling up with the fate of a major character in limbo.

"It's a heart-pounding rollercoaster ride amped right up," James Purefoy tells The Hollywood Reporter of the season closer, which will answer the question of whether Weston (Shawn Ashmore) is truly dead. After the deaths of Lily (Connie Nielsen) and Emma (Valorie Curry), anything is possible.

In Monday's finale, "Forgive," Joe is forced to work with his nemesis, Ryan (Kevin Bacon), in order to save Claire (Natalie Zea) from the unhinged twins Mark and Luke (Sam Underwood). "If all the other episodes are going up to 10, then this really goes up to 11. You just don't know what's going to happen, and the stakes are very, very high," Purefoy says. In a chat with THR, he talks about the season's climactic end, a tense team-up with Ryan and the odds of Joe surviving the season.

I love James Purefoy and it just kills me that he's the bad guy in this show. I wish he had a show where he's the lead in a good roll because he's really an excellent actor. Maybe on the next one.
