Mark Gray is considered a dangerous fugitive by the FBI.

It’s about time. It was getting tiring watching Mark fumble and bumble around like a new born puppy and make so many mistakes. The only credit that can be given is that his ‘Luke’ personality got him to pull the wood from his eyes and see that he was being used by Daisy and Kyle who were working for Author Strauss who was their teacher. Yes, the charisma is coming back to the series. Strauss had planned everything out with getting Mark to send his message and making Ryan Hardy look like a fool on the stand at his trial. Everything that has happened so far has been about Strauss’ trial and how Ryan went above his duty as an FBI agent and used illegal means of putting Strauss in prison. Now out on a mistrial, Strauss looks to begin his own cult that he promises will overshadow Joe Carroll.

Lies do eventually catch up to you in the end. As more secrets get exposed, the team of Ryan, Max and Mike begins to disintegrate. Ryan is trying to keep things under wraps with the probability of driving Gwen away if he continues to keep her in the dark. Mike and Max decide to release some pent up tension and have a quick romp around in Max’s apartment with Daisy and Kyle watching. Max regrets the act but she’ll regret it a whole lot more when she finds out that her boyfriend Tom found Daisy’s laptop when the FBI raids Mark’s safe house. Mike believes that there is a chance for them to get back together but that is not likely since he left her at the docks to pursue Mark and Max is nearly beaten to death by Daisy. Obviously, this pisses Ryan off and he lashes out at Mike and Mike reminds Ryan of his vendetta against Joe Carroll. Oh, speaking of Joey-boy, Ryan decides to pay him a visit in prison in order to have him help find Strauss. *Sigh* With Joe Carroll back in the picture and Author Strauss ready to show what made him such a good teacher, we can get back to the disturbance that made the Following so…intriguing to watch.
