Staff WriterCan you say jaw-dropping? That’s the only word I can think of to describe this week’s episode of The Following, mainly because of how it ended. I love it when a show is able to throw you a curve ball and leave you wishing you could watch the next episode ASAP. Let’s break the hour down and see what actually happened.“Unmasked” picks up with Micah cooking up a plan to reveal himself to the world with Joe Carroll. Carrie Cooke, however, continues to bank off Joe's name by appearing on television and selling copies of her book based on his last killing spree called The Havenport Tragedy. The two begin making a video which they will use to announce the presence of Micah's cult to the world. Later, Joe sends Emma and two cult members, Robert and Lance, to New York City to proceed with Joe's plan to hand over the video to Carrie Cooke. Meanwhile at Ryan’s apartment, Max shows up to find a half-naked Mike in the living room. After seeing the goods, she offers him coffee and asks how he’s doing since his father's passing. They look over a list of possible mole suspects. She’s already narrowed it down to six women and one of them is Agent Mendez, who is currently heading up the subway killings case from earlier in the season. Ryan shows up and isn’t convinced Mendez could be the mole but once they bring up her estranged wife, Jana, he becomes suspicious. Ryan intercepts Mendez in the street and confronts her about accessing Agent Parker’s email before her death to see information about Joe Carroll. Mendez denies the accusations but is smart enough to quickly realize Jana is the one responsible. She leaves behind her cell phone and vehicle and catches a cab. Ryan and Mike follow her. Mendez arrives at Jana’s home and confronts her about using her security clearance to access FBI files. Jana starts acting crazy—something we hadn’t seen before—and even though she doesn’t admit to helping Joe, she gets angry enough to stab Mendez with a knife and leave her to die in her garage. She runs upstairs to pack her things and escape when Ryan and Mike show up at the house. Ryan finds Mendez in the garage, and he and Mike attempt to put a stop to Jana. She refuses to give up and instead shoots herself in the head. Mendez gets taken to the hospital, and Mike tells Ryan that he was able to get a hold of Jana’s cellphone. After viewing the data, they find out Carrie Cooke is Joe's next target. Back at the camp, Joe and Micah speak about their wives. Micah asks about Joe's ex-wife Claire’s death, and it’s clear he’s planning to kill his own wife, Julia. His men bring her to him, and she tries to convince him not to continue trying to kill people. Julia sees a gun on the table and tries to shoot him after he refuses to change his mind. Joe appears, and Julia realizes she failed the test. Joe then strangles her with a cable, and Micah thanks him for killing her.
