"The Following" TV series Series 1, Episode 14 "The End is Near" review

We have all been to crap dinner parties, but I think the one hosted by Joe takes the cake. Good old Claire, she is very nifty with the knife and fork as well. Joe is becoming more sloshed with each episode.
Two great scenes: the disconcerting TV reporter stabbing outside the police station. I know these reporters ask some dumb questions, but that was a bit harsh. Sheesh!
The slaughter in the school gym scene - shades of Stephen King's "Carrie". The idea of the nutbags walking among the innocent is very creepy. Updating Poe's "The Masque of the Red Death" was inspired.  And we got "The Premature Burial" in the last scene.
Does John Lafayette return? He was only in it for the episode about Parker's cult family. He gets billing each week.
Final episode of the season next week. I want to lots of Ryan-Joe verbal duelling - if Joe can stay off the scotch and red wine long enough.
