Coming out of the Season 2 finale of “The Following,” there were a lot of questions to be asked. Is Claire gone forever? Who’s going to make sure Joe Carroll stays behind bars this time? Is Mike going to get in trouble for breaking protocol and killing Lily Gray in cold blood? And, finally and most urgently, who the heck was driving that car that picked up Mark Gray?
For those racking their brains for an answer to that last question, Monday’s (March 2) Season 3 premiere answered it. The driver turns out to be no one fans are familiar with: Andrew Jacobs. Andrew — or the person who goes by the name Andrew — works for Mark by murdering people and then setting them up in pre-planned positions, just like Mark used to do with his brother Luke.
Until his relationship with Mark is explained in more detail, what little fans do know about Andrew is that, as Ryan and Mike would put it, he gets off on crying. That theory is proven when it’s shown that Andrew enjoys going to support groups so he can pick his next target while sobbing in front of a group of strangers. Normal.
