TVOM: "The Following has had a strong run so far this season, mostly because some other complaints that had surfaced about the show are slowly being addressed. The deaths mean more. The FBI is smarter, quicker, and stronger. The characters are stronger than ever. Some might worry that tonight’s episode was a step backwards in the progress the show has made, but I disagree. It still fit in with the “reset” of sorts, and it proved to be just as intense as The Following can be."
