Today is setting up to be a disastrous day.

It doesn’t even have anything to do with me but I’m still suffering under it.

I was saving that for when I got upstairs and into bed.

Which is now, so will you please come join me?

I want to go upstairs (it’s about fucking time) but my sleepy cat finally crawled onto my fucking lap and now I’ll feel bad if I get up.

I’m absolutely craving food that I don’t have and don’t even like.

Someone please get me out of these clothes.

When you dream about getting a haircut, it’s probably time to get a haircut.

Episode 15 in screencaps

Because I added a few to my review of the finale here but then it grew into this enormous post. More under the cut.

"I suppose the radio is out of the question, is it? … You could at least talk to me, it’s rather lonely back here."

"Well next time you come to my rescue, perhaps you could avoid nearly bloody killing me!"

"You know, Tim… you really ought to think twice before rescuing me." Motherfucking kills him in cold blood

Such good friends.

Look, no guns! They’re getting along so well!

Oh.

"Oh come on Ryan." YEAH COME ON RYAN. "I thought we discussed this last night." CAN YOU JUST PICTURE THEM TALKING ABOUT NOT TRYING TO KILL EACH OTHER FOR THE TIME IT WILL TAKE TO SAVE CLAIRE WHILE THEY’RE IN THAT DARK CAR TOGETHER.

Episode 15

That finale was really fucking fun.

My god. I’d never been particularly interested in the Joe/Ryan dynamics, I mean, Joe was obsessed with Ryan, Ryan was obsessed with him, they were playing a cat-and-mouse game, they wouldn’t be able to live without each other, blabla, Joe liked Ryan better than Ryan liked him, etc. etc.

HOW MUCH FUCKING FUN WAS IT TO WATCH THEM WORK TOGETHER

Also, shout out to Joe apparently having developed a mini crush on Mikey because he’s a mini Ryan.

"Finally!" Yes, Max, finally!

Joe getting slapped!

Luke is probably dead, and if he is, I kind of saw it coming (they couldn’t both make it out alive and it’s usually the crazy one who dies and the quiet one who seeks revenge and starts getting crazy in return). I mean he could be alive, but after getting shot like that and their tendency to play house with dead people, I’d say there’s a very good chance he’s dead. But maybe the cold slowed down the bleeding, I don’t know.

So the twins are gonna be Ryan’s main enemy in season 3? Even though Mark found out it was Mike who shot his mother and not him?

Still, though - they were trying to make it seem like Emma might take over Joe’s cult with him being dead after season 1 ended, and Joe is still very much alive, so I do hope he’ll be the bad guy in season 3 again - he’s the bad guy of this entire show (he’s the reason I watch this show dammit). He didn’t know if he had a “third escape” in him but by god I hope he does.

I was sure Claire was gonna end up dead because I thought I read it somewhere, but apparently those comments were still regarding season 1 or something. Slightly disappointed. Although I loved the confrontation between her and Joe.

I thought Joe wasn’t completely being sincere with Emma when he held that entire emotional speech; yes, I thought he would prefer to have Emma by his side instead of Claire because at least Emma loves him, but the whole “The woman behind the man, it’s always been you” thing was just blatant manipulation. But his closure regarding Claire… I don’t know if he really thought he got over her or if that too was meant to manipulate Emma, because during that confrontation, it struck to me that Joe is still not over his “love” (obsession) for Claire. He had this idea of a perfect family and he wants it, dammit. Doesn’t matter that Claire hates him and wants to see him dead (“You did the right thing”, really? Claire, you endangered your own life and others’ because you wanted to kill him yourself).

So the twins still have one more ally, huh? Were they part of Joe’s clique? Else I really don’t know how they ended up at the inn.

And Ryan? You’re lying, man. Joe’s gonna disappear from your mind? Like he did when you thought he died last year? After you closed the book on Claire, a book which you’re now forced to close again? You know, I believed you the first time at first, until you opened the door to your freaking Joe Carroll room.

In other words, showrunners, please don’t make the twins/Mark the new villain. Joe Carroll is and will always be what makes this show.

The Following episode 14

Okay, so Emma is dead.

Was hoping Joe would do it himself, and I found the whole Emma/Claire confrontation a little anti-climactic… but oh well.

How did the twins know where they would be?

Totally called the pastor killing himself to save his son. But why would you cut your own throat?! It hurts, it’s slow, it takes some force to really cut through everything there…

And ooh, cliffhanger. I’m pretty sure Mike makes it out alive and even if Ryan shot at Joe he would’ve missed, so… did Ryan kill the guy in the hall so he could approach Joe?

And how good did Joe look in this episode.

Okay so he didn’t kill Emma, but can he at least kill Claire himself? I know she ends up dead but I don’t want her killed by the “opposition”. I think the twins are gonna end up dead too, but I would like at least Luke to survive. They have Claire, though, and they’re probably gonna seek revenge for their mother. So a showdown with Joe lies ahead, but then he’s in that church, and I don’t know what’s gonna happen. How would they even know where to find him and how would they be able to get some alone time with him.

Please don’t have them all killed by Ryan or the FBI? I would like to see some more real Joe before this season is over. So far he’s mostly been all bark and no bite. I can only remember two of his victims this season. I want to see him count down and then actually kill someone without pausing for dramatic effect. Joe is a serial killer before he’s a cult creating attention whore.

Finale time.
