While I've loved the unexpected twists and terrifying turns that lace every excellent episode of The Following, what truly cemented my adoration for Kevin Williamson's serial killer thriller was Emma, Jacob and Paul's literal and figurative threesome.
But with last week's episode forever eliminating one of the love triangle's corners (R.I.P. Paul), the fans and the show need to move on. So to find out what's next, I caught up with Nico Tortorella, who is coming off his most powerful episode yet as Jacob finally committed his first murder and simultaneously bid adieu to his partner in crime.
ETonline: We saw an unexpectedly emotional side of Jacob last week with his mother. Do you think he feels broken at that moment?
Nico Tortorella: Yeah, he's definitely broken. But that moment with his mother kind of shows you who Jacob is. The script was so beautiful in the way those pieces came together, especially with Paul being there.
