The Following’s Future

As seen in last night’s episode of The Following, the writers have repeatedly played with the idea that Joe might escape from prison and Ryan join him on the run. Even the episode’s preview suggested this idea. Yet, like the week before, it turned out that these scenes were a dream sequence…Ryan has been dreaming about saving Joe and becoming a follower for several episodes now because he is having difficulty dealing with both the relief of Joe no longer being in his life and the loss of losing someone who was once a friend.

The trailer for next week’s episode “Evermore” reveals Joe seemingly taking over the prison by using the wire he broke off a pair of sunglasses in last night’s episode. He kills guards and takes his lawyer, a doctor and another man hostage and then, as his Final Demand, orders Ryan to come inside the prison alone since Ryan refused to come to his execution. Several images then suggest that Joe will force Ryan to become a killer and truly his follower.

Could this be another dream sequence?

Fan Gianfrancesco Genoso blogged on jornadacriminosa that Joe will die in one of the next two episodes instead of escape . They also don’t believe this is a dream. Instead, they think he will force Ryan to kill an innocent so Ryan will have to live with that connection between them “evermore” even after Joe is dead.
