The Following's Valorie Curry: Emma Is "Not the Same Person She Used to Be"

Has Joe Carroll lost his mojo?

The serial killer at the heart of Fox's The Following seems to have been taken down a few notches this season. On last week's episode, Carroll (James Purefoy) began to question his talents as a writer, and even his No. 1 devotee, Emma (Valorie Curry) is starting to see cracks in the pedestal on which she's placed him.

"She knows now that he is fallible, whereas before he was very godlike to her," Curry tells TVGuide.com. "Now, she's borne the brunt of his mistakes, of his weaknesses. ... Their relationship is going to be different going forward, [with Emma] knowing now that he is capable of making mistakes. He also admits that he needs her ... as a partner, not so much as a follower."

The Following's Sam Underwood: "Mark Has a Huge Amount of Power Over Luke"

It's been double trouble for Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and the FBI on The Following, thanks to the terrifying twins Mark and Luke (both played by Sam Underwood). But despite what we've learned so far about the diabolical duo, viewers shouldn't assume that Luke is the one who's calling all the shots, according to Underwood.

"On the surface, [Luke is the leader], yes," Underwood tells TVGuide.com. "But Mark also has a huge amount of power over Luke. You see that in the first episode when Luke is about to go all crazy on Carlos. Just before he's about to kill him, Mark kind of reins him in. ... He has the ability to be able to do that with Luke because of their relationship. Luke is the front-man of the band. He's the Paul McCartney. But Mark is the Ringo Starr. He's there keeping it all together, even though he's not at the very front."

Our top moments of the week:

14. Dead Sexy Award: Boyd's story just keeps getting twist-ier on Justified. In order to get out of his latest beef with Paxton, Boyd convinces Sheriff Mooney to switch sides in the battle and tells Paxton he had indeed murdered Boyd. But in order to pull off the scheme, Mara suggests Paxton will need to see a dead body — or at least part of one. Ultimately, the pair decides — after upping the sexual tension by taking a guided tour of the tattoos on Boyd's naked torso — to re-create Boyd's ink on one of the body parts in Paxton's own morgue as a stand-in. Ironically, if prison-bound Ava knew about Boyd and Mara's sexy stand-off in the bar, Boyd might already be a... read more
