The Siege



I still like the show, but I'm starting to get a bit frustrated with the pacing. This is going to be a series of close calls, followed by delays to spread this out over the season. If this is a 13 episode season, then I can deal with it. But if this is 22-24 episodes long, I'm going to go bat-sh*t crazy waiting for some answers to the endgame. However, with the cliffhanger, I can't wait to see how Ryan Hardy is going to get out of this sticky situation at the farm.

Awesome news and totally unexpected because I read a couple of weeks back that the show was on the bubble of being cancelled. I'm digging the show so far. I'm hooked. Thanks for the news Mac!!!!

The Fall



I knew that Ryan would try and create division with the gang. That was obvious. What I didn't think to see was that Ryan would actually enjoy and get a kick out of rubbing their faces in it that both dudes were being controlled by Emma, which was in fact true. The smirk on Ryan's face was priceless. As for the Town Deputy Chick, I knew she was a follower. Watching the series thus far, you just have to assume that every single character is one. The back story involving Agent Debra Parker was pretty interesting and gives more insight into why she chose the profession that she is in. But I'm still not convinced that she isn't a follower herself.

Let Me Go




I just realize that this series is 24 in a way. I don't know why, but watching this episode, I kept picturing Kiefer Sutherland in the role of Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon). And in every scene that plays out, it exactly how it would unfold for Jack Bauer. And this was even before the moment when Ryan tortures the one guy]. Jack would be sooooooo proud!!! As for the rest of the episode, I always knew that there would be some sort of Prison break for Joe Carroll, but not THIS soon. I figured it would be toward the end of the season to use to set up Season 2.

The ending was creepy with Joey being reunited with his Dad (Joe) with all those followers surrounding him. I find it creepy that anyone would worship and follow someone like Joe and have no thoughts of their own.  Sheeps!!!

Welcome Home



Another very gory scene in this one. It was like watching a horror flick when the prisoner gnawed his hand off to get to the cyanide pill under the skin. All that blood on TV. I'm still not going to get use to the idea that the censor board is becoming quite comfortable  loosening their grip on what can and can't be shown. Anyway, the ending when Charlie willingly gives himself up to Joe to be sacrificed was kind of unbelievable. I've always thought the whole concept of Cults to be an absurd one. I still can't wrap my head around how people can be so gullible to give themselves over freely to another man that represents the worst in humanity.

Love Hurts



Well, Jacob is now reunited with Emma as seen at the end of the episode. He doesn't look happy to see her having just killed Paul out of mercy. My guess is that Jacob will play nice with Emma for a while before the guilt really kicks in and he kills her for abandoning them when she escaped the farm. Another bloody episode where they keep pushing the envelope of what is making its way onto broadcast TV. Loved the song they used to close out the episode. It was fitting.

Guilt



Interesting twist at the end. So, it looks like one of Ryan's past love interest was / is a follow of Joe. What remains to be seen is exactly how Ryan pushed her away. But it was implied with his 'death curse' that he got her killed. So, if that's the case then obviously this was part of an elaborate plan set in motion my Joe to really screw with Ryan's head and get him believing there is a curse that he can't escape.

Elsewhere, I think that Jacob is going to have a moment of clarity where his conscious will propel him to save Joey. Of course it won't be successful, leading to his demise. It has to happen this way because I can't see him walking around the rest of the season with anger toward Emma and this not being a problem with Joe.
