The Following, Season 1, Episode 11: “Whips and Regret”

Written by Kevin Williamson & Rebecca Dameron

Directed by Marcos Siega

Aired Mondays at 9pm (Et) on Fox

So far, there are three major types of episodes in The Following: the big conflict episodes where the main characters face off, the psycho-of-the-week episodes to fill Fox’s “x-treme” body count quota, and the table setting episodes for those previous two types—by far the worst of them all.

Guess which one this episode falls into.

Yes, “Whips and Regret” slides neatly in that dreaded third category, even if shreds of the others do pop up. We have a killer of the week, complete with his own little set of quirks (Bdsm! Edgy!), but even so, he mostly doesn’t do much damage, and the episode is really only Ryan getting a “little bit closer” to infiltrating Poe-central, a complete waste of an hour. »
