The Following S:1 | Pilot E:1 | AfterBuzz TV AfterShow

AFTERBUZZ TV – The Following edition, is a weekly “after show” for fans of Fox’s The Following. In this show, hosts Joe Sanfelippo breaks down the “Pilot” episode in which infamous serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) escapes from prison and Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon), a retired F.B.I. agent responsible for capturing Carroll, is pulled back into the field to assist the manhunt. The police secure both Claire Matthews (Natalie Zea), Carroll’s ex-wife (and mother of his son Joey) with whom Hardy had an affair, and Sarah Fuller (Maggie Grace), the only one of Carroll’s victims to survive. Assisted by FBI agents Mike Weston (Shawn Ashmore) and Jennifer Mason (Jeananne Goossen), Hardy attempts to track down a prison guard who helped Carroll escape and is now being taught how to be a serial killer. When a young woman commits suicide in front of Hardy at Carroll’s request saying the same last words as Edgar Allan Poe, Hardy begins to suspect that Carroll has used the internet to create a following of disciples he uses to carry out his plans. Sarah is kidnapped by two such followers (men posing as gay neighbors) and is tortured and killed by Carroll. Hardy is too late to save her, but Carroll allows himself to be taken back into custody, where he tells Hardy that this is only the beginning. Denise, Joey’s live-in nanny who is completely trusted by Claire, takes Joey for some time out while the FBI is over, but is revealed to be another of Joe’s followers (real name Emma Hill), and hands Joey over to the two men who kidnapped Sarah. There to help Joe are co-hosts Joe Braswell, Teresa La, and Nando Velasquez. It’s The Following’s “Pilot” podcast!
