Are you ready for The Following season 3?
If you answered yes, we’re not sure you’ve been watching the same show as us. You can never be prepared for The Following.
Regardless, we’ve seen the first episode of the new season and it has everything we loved about the first two seasons and more. Blood! Pain and heartache! Kevin Bacon on the dance floor!
But you’re not here to learn about something as trivial as the one year time jump. You want the juicy stuff. Don’t worry — we’ve got you covered.
Three ‘The Following’ season 3 premiere spoilers
1. A rose by any other name
Two characters have new romances brewing. While that does leave someone as the fifth wheel, we’re happy for the other two lovebirds. Both of them have found someone in which they can trust (we hope) — for now at least. We’re never 100% certain we can trust anyone on this show, but we’re willing to give them a chance. Don’t break our hearts.
2. Luke, is that you?
Luke may have died in season 2, leaving his more demure twin on his own, but that doesn’t mean Luke isn’t still around, at least in spirit. Mark’s not in a good place in the beginning of season 3, but he’s working through his issues. Just wait till you see how he’s doing that. It kind of makes everyone uncomfortable, including us.
3. Liar, liar, pants on fire
There are no fewer than half a dozen deaths in this first episode, so if you thought season 3 was going to ease us back into this crazy world, you’d be dead wrong. The beginning of the episode may start off full of hope and joy, but that quickly goes down the drain, and by the end of the episode (as the chilling final words are spoken) you know that things are only going to get more dangerous from here on out.
The Following season 3 premieres on March 2 at 9:00 p.m. on Fox.
