Will The Following jump ahead in time for Season 2?

The Following went out with a boom last night, bringing its first season to a conclusion that ratcheted up the body count and ended with an explosion and a final surprise that provided more questions than answers.

Even with the clock ticking on a looming medical apocalypse, a worldwide pandemic of fatal "English Sweating Sickness" initiated by the unleashing of a magical Black Orchid thingamabob, Syfy's quirky fan fave Warehouse 13 manages to find time to crack wise about the end of the world.
"It's always 'ultimately death,'" Agent Pete (Eddie McClintock) bemoans when clued in about just how nasty the disease is that has infected the entire team and much of the rest of the planet. "Artifacts never release a plague of tickles or an epidemic of kittens." A plague of tickles: not a bad way to describe this tongue-in-cheek supernatural lark which pulls out all the guest-star stops in an eventful episode (Monday, 10/9c) by Drew Z. Greenberg that kicks off the second half of Season 4 with Evil Artie's (Saul Rubinek) life and soul also in jeopardy.

The first season of Fox's The Following comes to what's sure to be a terrifying and bloody conclusion Monday night (9/8c) — and even star James Purefoy, who plays escaped serial killer Joe Carroll, is unsure about what's going to happen.

tragic love tale horror story that Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) has been authoring all season will come to what looks like a bloody conclusion on Monday's season finale of The Following.

With all the twists and turns that have marked The Following's first season, we wouldn't be surprised if creator Kevin Williamson doesn't sneak in another twist in the show's final two episodes. Like... a mole in the FBI perhaps? We know Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) was able to infiltrate local law enforcement with Roderick (Warren Kole) and also put Molly (Jennifer Ferrin) in place to keep an eye on Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon). But who else is in on it? We break down the most likely suspects:
Warren Kole, James Purefoy
The FBI is within striking distance of Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) on The Following, but the greatest threat to Carroll's plan may be his own right-hand man, Roderick (Warren Kole). Though Roderick has FBI agents Debra Parker (Annie Parisse) and Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) convinced he's nothing more than a local sheriff heading into Monday's episode (9/8c, Fox), he won't be able to maintain the ruse for long.
Usually, Richard Castle's overactive imagination is a good thing — so good that as he helps his NYPD buddies solve scores of murders, you often wonder how they'd ever get along without him. In the set-up for Castle's clever lark of a 100th episode on ABC (Monday, 10:01/9:01c), they're forced to go solo as Castle (Nathan Fillion in rare form) stews in boredom in his apartment, nursing a busted leg. Until he picks up his new birthday binoculars and goes all Jimmy Stewart-in-Rear Window, convinced he's witnessed a murder across the street, eventually drawing his beloved Beckett and intrepid daughter Alexis into the Hitchcockian-homage intrigue. The more agitated Castle gets, the more skeptical everyone else becomes, and as the twists and comically suspenseful close calls pile up, leading to yet another chewing-out by that spoilsport Capt. Gates, we're treated to an entertaining object lesson in the "seeing isn't believing" playbook. Well done, including the timely subplot involving the murder of an IRS agent which, even when chair-bound, Castle can't help inadvertently helping his friends figure out.
The stakes are raised to a new level for the FBI on Monday's episode of The Following, now that escaped serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) has accomplished his first goal after getting out of prison: reuniting with his wife Claire (Natalie Zea) and son Joey (Kyle Catlett).
"The intensity of our need to find them is amped up," Annie Parisse, who plays Agent Debra Parker, tells TVGuide.com. "We know they have Claire. We know they have Joey. And we're honing in on their location, but it's still a needle in the haystack."
