Final 2 hours. If you haven't already heard, this isn't coming back next season.

RIP The Following. Too bad people, especially in this forum, stopped giving a shit after the 1st season.

Some bad in the final two hours but I really liked the ending. Wonder if there's any shot at all of a movie or limited run to see him hunt down the hot Russian from the Americans.

Too bad this was the final season; the set-up for a fourth season seemed really interesting with Ryan Playing dead and going underground to take down the Koch brothers who are running some kind of Eyes Wide Shut/Hostel kind of operation.

Netflix? Amazon?

Great season finale, but terrible series finale.

Totally sets up a fourth season with Ryan going rogue to find out about that mystery organization.

And not surprised there was a mole in the FBI a la 24, a little surprised it was Campbell. I loved Ryan taking care of her at the end.

Oh well, another one bites the dust. It was a really entertaining 2 hours though. Just too bad that's it.

HATED the ending because they didn't END IT! Nothing but a complete setup for a season 4. Ryan faking his death and embarking on a vigilante mission. Theo's body wasn't recovered so you know what that means. Eliza speaking to some mysterious boss on the phone. Dammit!

Agree with the other comments - decent season finale (although I could've done without the mole!) but not a great series finale - although I'm sure I won't lose much sleep over it.
Didn't Theo take a shot to the head? Not sure how he got up from that (a graze maybe)
Thought Michael Ealy was great as Theo - hope we see him again soon.

Wonder if Williamson/Bacon + Warner are shopping this show around to Hulu, Netflix, amazon, etc ...

That was the theory originally, I don't think it's strong enough to continue but who knows.

Wow. Sucks this was ending. Badass premise with the finale. And whoever does the music on this show fucking rocks. Deftones in the premiere episode and to end the finale.

I think there is zero shot this show gets picked up by anyone else. The original creative talent has all left and ratings cratered this season.

Its one of those times you wish they found out soon enough to rewrite the finale or do some reshooting to give it an ending. Wouldn't have taken that much. Just have Theo dead on the bridge and no him getting up and going over the edge. Then a quick scene of the FBI arresting Nina (Russian) because of info the FBI mole gave up in a plea deal. Probably could have been done in the end 5 minutes. Might have seemed rushed but it would be an ending.

Just caught up finishing the series which i now know has been cancelled

I actually liked this season

Dorian was a great new villian. Eliza too and her unknown organisation

Strauss was killed off too early

Mole in the FBI reveal in the last episode was very 24ish in that if she really was a mole, she would have acted differently in earlier episodes

The setup for next season was actually good, would have been pretty cool
