TV RECAP: THE FOLLOWING “RESURRECTION” SEASON 2, EPISODE 1Posted: January 20, 2014
We finish up the scene from the season 1 finale. Joe’s follower stabs Ryan and Claire, stabs Claire a second time and then Ryan kills her.
Mike Weston visits Ryan at the hospital and tells him that Claire died from her injuries.
– ONE YEAR LATER –
Ryan seems to be in good health. He’s going to AA meetings. We meet his sponsor, Barry, and another AA member, Melissa. He’s also a teacher.
His niece, Max, comes over to keep him company during the 1 year anniversary of Havenport/Joe’s death/Claire’s death. There’s a party with the niece, her boyfriend, Barry, and Melissa.
On a subway train three people in Joe Carroll masks appear and start stabbing and killing the passengers. One person yells, “The resurrection is coming! Joe Carroll lives! Ryan Hardy can’t stop us!”
Mike Weston is at home, far away from New York. He was suspended awhile ago, but Agent Phillips has asked him to come back to New York and investigate the subway killings.
A young woman, Heather, is walking to her apartment door and shares flirtatious glances with a young man hanging around. He strangles her to death and lays in bed with her.
– Flashback to 8 months ago, the last time Ryan and Mike saw each other – Ryan is drunk at the bar. Mike tells him Joey is safe with his grandmother in witness protection. It’s almost time to testify before the grand jury, and Mike begs Ryan to not talk, and just say “I don’t remember” to all of the questions.
Lily Gray survived the subway attack and she talks to the FBI agents, Mike, and Ryan.
Crazy guy cooks food and dances with Heather’s dead body. Wait…there’s two! He has a twin.
Emma is in New Jersey wearing a punk, multi-color hairdo and lip piercings. She’s stunned by the attacks.
At FBI HQ, Mike uses a body scan on the surveillance footage and IDs a guy named Carlos. Agents Phillips and Mendez are trying to get Ryan’s help but he is very resistant and he leaves.
Ryan sits down with Max and goes through his case notes. Looks like these two have been working for awhile to track down Carroll. Ryan finds some information about Carlos. Max locates his most recent home address and Ryan goes to pay a visit. He doesn’t call the FBI.
Carlos says Joe escaped unharmed from the lighthouse. He was going to drive Joe away but the police road blocks caused Joe to flee the car and go off into the darkness.
After a brief scuffle Carlos gets away from Ryan and runs to Giselle’s apartment. Ryan searches Carlos’ apartment and finds a playbill with Heather’s name circled on it. He calls Max and she tells him a young woman was found dead. Emma is following Ryan and she watches him leave the apartment building.
Mike confronts Ryan at the crime scene for secluding himself after the events at the lighthouse. Heather’s body is tied to a bench with a book taped to her hands, and she’s wearing a light white dress and red lips. This is a Claire-like character from Joe’s book.
The crazy twins (Luke with the slicked back hair and Mark with the bangs) visit Carlos at Giselle’s apartment. They are worried that Ryan found some incriminating evidence at his apartment. Turns out the twins are followers of Joe Carroll but they are leaders of a rogue group that has no connection to Emma and her people.
In the last scene we see Joe Carroll walk into a random prostitute’s home. A young girl in the house calls him ‘Darryl’. He lives!
