EXCLUSIVE! 'The Following' Sneak Peek: Joe Carroll's Execution Leaves Ryan Hardy on Edge

By
Uh-oh, is Ryan Hardy’s (Kevin Bacon) past coming back to haunt him?
As Joe Carroll’s (James Purefoy) execution approaches, past horrors are starting to visibly affect the former FBI agent, who finds himself glued to a television news report about the serial killer’s impending death.
In ETonline’s exclusive sneak peek at tonight’s episode, titled “Evermore,” Ryan receives yet another call from a reporter seeking a statement. “I’m actually hoping the cyber attack shuts my phone down,” Ryan tells his significant other, Gwen (Zuleikha Robinson).
When the news reporter brings up the fact that Ryan hasn’t visited Joe in prison as his midnight execution approaches, that’s when Gwen shuts off the TV.
“Why are you doing this to yourself? You should try and forget about it,” Gwen suggests. “I know, easier said and done.” Gwen suggests the two skip work and go out for a movie instead in an effort to clear his mind.
“I think I would be climbing the walls inside of five minutes. Gotta keep busy,” Ryan says before leaving for work.
Something tells us he’s about to be pulled back into Joe’s web! Press play in the video above to watch the scene play out.

The Following airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
