Joe's Plan Starts to Unravel and One Acolyte Meets His Final Story on Fox's The Following
Roderick took Ryan to the house where he’d hidden Joey, and Ryan reunited with the boy. Roderick was about to betray them, when Mike suddenly popped out with a gun. However, before he could fire, Roderick was shot dead by the followers.
Mike hid Joey in a room—because, yeah, that’s a great idea. After all it took to finally retrieve Joey, the best plan would be to separate from him—Not! Ryan and Mike were both attacked by one of the random followers, and killed their respective attackers. However, Joey had escaped from his hiding spot when he tripped over the corpse of the house’s owner, and was promptly scooped up by Jacob.
Ryan chased them down, and tried to appeal to Jacob’s paternal feelings for Joey by saying he deserved to be safe. This mirrored an earlier conversation Claire had with the rattled Golden Boy, when she begged Jacob not to return Joey to her crazy ex’s clutches.
With the FBI closing in, Jacob fled, and Joey was reunited with the good guys.
