The Following S:1 | The Poet’s Fire E:3 | 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, Teresa La, and Nando Velasquez break down the episode “The Poet’s Fire” in which Ryan Hardy and his team obtain video footage of the immolation incident and he recognizes the victim (Todd Faulkner) as a literary critic who gave Joe Carroll’s book a scathing review. Emma, Paul and Jacob continue to keep Joey at the house, but Paul confronts Emma about her relationship with Jacob, and she cuts his arm. He leaves the house and picks up a convenience store worker, Megan (Li Jun Li), later knocking her out to kidnap and hold her hostage at the house. Another follower, Rick Kester (Michael Drayer), is also uncovered. His wife, Maggie (Virginia Kull), goes to Hardy and his team, saying he was abusive, having stabbed her on a previous occasion. He also killed the dean at the college where Carroll worked, as revenge for his having denied Carroll tenure. Maggie returns home under police surveillance, and soon receives a text message, which Agent Reilly reads. He is fatally stabbed by her and Rick shows up, ready to flee. Hardy shoots him but Maggie escapes. Special Agent Parker also tells Jordy she will allow him to meet Carroll if he confesses to Joey’s whereabouts. He does but soon realizes she lied to him, and kills himself by swallowing his own bandages. Claire receives a disturbing video of Joey being goaded into killing small animals by Jacob. It’s The Following’s “The Poet’s Fire” podcast!
