This week’s episode brought up some very concerning issues regarding Tom, Max’s most recent boyfriend, and where his character’s story might be headed. What do you think Tom will do next on The Following?
It’s hard to imagine an FBI agent just suddenly going rogue and taking out people right and left, but at the same time, it’s a slippery slope from one wrongdoing to a whole host of them. This dilemma has us scratching our heads trying to figure out what exactly Tom, Max Hardy’s most recent boyfriend and fellow FBI agent, will do next.
This past Monday on The Following season 3, we learned that Daisy and Mark are getting awfully close to finding out who has been using their cameras to spy on Max Hardy at home. Daisy is hoping that whoever it is will be willing to aid in their efforts to take out Mike Weston, and eventually, maybe even Ryan Hardy.
Prior to this week’s episode, we couldn’t imagine a world in which Tom would actually consider killing Mike Weston. Sure, he wasn’t happy about the guy hooking up with Max, but it was hard to imagine him wanting to actually kill him.
After his character accidentally went a little too far with an agent investigating the raid of Mark’s safehouse from the beginning of the season, Tom now has a dead body on his hands, and it’s not not his fault. Sure, he didn’t pull out the gun and unload the clip, but he was present for the struggle and at some point, got his finger wrapped around the trigger.
This one act could act as the catalyst for his character’s descent into Daisy and Mark’s fold. He could choose to throw away everything he knows now to fully embrace the life of a killer. We know from experience that one death can be enough to push a person over the edge, as we’ve seen characters turn their backs on reality to follow a crazy man into insanity before.
So, now we want to know what you think. How do you think Tom will deal with the body he now has in his apartment? Do you think the dark side is at all tempting to him?
