Kevin Bacon and Natalie Zea

Hey honey, he's home!

Now that The Following's chief lunatic, Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), is out of prison and surrounded by a safety net of loyal followers, it's becoming clear that he has one primary goal: to reunite with his wife, Claire (Natalie Zea). Claire is currently under police protection, but that's a mere hiccup for Carroll's minions.

In this exclusive preview of next Monday's episode, Joe is able to find out Claire's specific location with the help of his right-hand man Roderick (Warren Kole) and sends two new recruits after her. We're guessing the couple's reunion won't be a happy one — and won't happen at all if Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) has anything to do with it. But with Joe's new muscle men looming and new followers cropping up all the time, will Hardy be able to save her in time?
