Is it time to unfollow The Following? After a promising start, Kevin Williamson's serial killer drama felt unfocused, repetitive and overindulgent for much of its sophomore season.
On Monday's finale, Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) came face to face (again), but this time they ended up working towards a common goal.

R.I.P. Emma Hill.
The protégé, lover and literal partner-in-crime of Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) on The Following met a gruesome end on the penultimate episode of Season 2 Monday, when she was killed by Joe's vengeful ex-wife Claire (Natalie Zea). And according to actress Valorie Curry, those who are wondering if Emma isn't actually dead shouldn't get their hopes up.
"They really wanted to drive the point home," Curry tells TVGuide.com. "It's so funny, because people are on Twitter like, 'She's just in a coma! Maybe she's alive.' I'm like, she was stabbed, she was thrown out a window, and then staked like a vampire. There's no coming back from impaling."
Maggie Q might not be off network TV for long.

Though The Following's second season doesn't officially get underway until Monday, Jan. 27, Fox will air a special preview episode after the NFC championship game on Sunday, which will catch viewers up on what's happened in the year since the (allegedly) fatal showdown between Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and Joe Carroll (James Purefoy).
Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy are back as television's grisliest odd couple — and we can hardly mask our excitement. "It gets a little more demented," promises executive producer Kevin Williamson of The Following's unsettling second act for Bacon's former FBI agent Ryan Hardy and the erudite literature professor—turned—cult leader Joe Carroll, played with cheeky relish by Purefoy. Just don't expect The Following to hew to the same cops-and-psychos course it ran during its first season. It's still a scare-fest that excels at getting under your skin, but "we're changing the feel and the texture of the show," Williamson says. "We want to make sure that you're not watching the same old thing." (The second season premieres Sunday, Jan. 19 after the NFC Championship game on Fox, then moves to its regular timeslot, Mondays at 9/8c, on Jan. 27.)
