The Following Season 2 Review “Unmasked”

Alright, now we’re getting somewhere. You know, I’ve got to hand it to “The Following.” Every time there seems to be cause for concern, the show has an uncanny way of righting itself just before it’s too late. In “Unmasked,” the show took care of some business that needed to be taken care of, and then some. I mean, every time I think I’m out, they pull me back in. And I can’t imagine anyone saw that final twist coming…but more on that later.

First off: Ding dong, the ding dong’s dead! As mentioned in previous columns, I was decidedly not a fan of the Micah character, and it’s not because Jake Weber isn’t a solid, likeable actor. I liked him in “Medium,” liked him in the “Dawn of the Dead” remake. I just thought he was dreadfully miscast here. Micah just seemed like a total moron that you couldn’t imagine inspiring much worshipping, and that was a problem if you want us as viewers to believe it could happen in the first place.
