Of all the shocks The Following's new season has delivered so far, the one we really didn't see coming was the reveal of murderous twins Mark and Luke, and their wacky mommy issues. The siblings are a double dose or wrong, yet Sam Underwood, who plays both roles, is so right. But who is he? To find out, read (sorry) the following!

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.)
James Purefoy, Kevin Bacon
When The Following returns for its second season (Monday, Jan. 27, 9/8c on Fox), a quick scene establishes the fate of Claire (Natalie Zea), and then the show jumps ahead a year to show us a very different Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon). Although the tortured FBI consultant has pieced himself back together after the apparent death of Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), not all is right with the world. Obviously...
Kevin Bacon and Shawn Ashmore
Will there be bad blood between The Following's fellas in Season 2? Apparently so, since executive producer Kevin Williamson reveals that "Ryan and Mike confront each other at a crime scene in New York" when Fox's grisly thriller returns in early 2014.
