On today’s Pop Confidential podcast Jamey Giddens, Luke Kerr, Jillian Bowe and Melodie Aikels have been struck with a severe case of Scandal fever. From Olivia and Fitz’s sizzlin’ relationship to the spurned First Lady, the PC gang discuses it all in this special Scandal Confidential episode.
Scandal isn’t the only hot show the DC crew dishes about on ABC. Miranda Bailey faced an investigation into the deaths of her patients on Grey's Anatomy. Jamey and Luke disagree on Cristina’s storyline.
The podcast then becomes Awkward as the gang discuss a surprising death on the MTV series. Brawls erupt in The Real Housewives of New Jersey trailer, but does that have anything on Mariah Carey andNicki Minaj’s feud on American Idol?
All this and much more on today’s Pop Confidential podcast!
The Following finale mirrored a season that was full of some highs and lots of lows. The first half concentrated on the FBI trying to locate Debra (Annie Parisse), who was buried alive. Joe’s (James Purefoy) followers had left clues, which included a cell phone, so Debra could talk to Ryan (Kevin Bacon) and Mike (Shawn Ashmore). She tearfully told them Mike was a good man, and her death wasn’t Ryan’s fault. She also wanted them to tell her family she loved them (even her culty rape parents!).
Ryan and Mike were led to the location of her kidnapper’s car, but it was a trap. A follower-sniper opened fire on them. A gunfight ensued with police, but dozens of bullets missed their targets, before Ryan had the perp in custody. READ MORE
The penultimate episode of The Following required viewers to throw believability completely out of the window. It was also rather boring and predictable, until the very shocking end. Even though it’s not over yet, I’ve have no idea how next season could focus on Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) again. His whole world has fallen apart.
With the police closing in, Joe put a plan in motion to basically have his followers (the handful he has left) kill themselves for him. Jacob (Nico Tortorella) was the only acolyte weary of being a human sacrifice. READ MORE
With only a couple episodes of The Following left this season, things are really starting to hit the proverbial fan. Mike (Shawn Ashmore) returned to cop headquarters, and immediately recognized Roderick as his torturer and Carrollite.
However, the shady sheriff was able to make a getaway when Mike pulled his gun on him, and was promptly tackled by the clueless townie cops. READ MORE
Claire (Natalie Zea) tried to escape Maniac Mansion with Joey on this week’s episode of The Following. Unfortunately, she determined to do this by literally walking out the front gate, and was quickly apprehended. All the little stunt earned her was an electronic monitoring bracelet, courtesy of Sheriff Roderick.
Claire recognized Roderick as Joe’s (James Purefoy) Number Two and tried turning the corrupt lawman against him. Claire didn’t know Roderick and Joe can’t stand each other at this point. READ MORE
Ryan (Kevin Bacon) was understandably depressed on this week’s episode of The Following. Even though his friend Tyson was going to be okay, Claire (Natalie Zea) had been taken, and they weren't any closer to catching Joe Carroll (James Purefoy).
Ryan sat drunk in front of a news report, as they rehashed the FBI’s ineptitude. Debra (Annie Parisse) came to check on him. She got him to come back into work, after admonishing his alcoholism and pointing out it was bad for his heart. READ MORE
