Season 2 Episode 9
Max does an analysis of female agents who might be the leak and one of them is Gina Mendez, in charge of the search for Joe Carroll. Ryan doesn't believe it but it seems that Gina accessed Agent Debra Parker's email at least 6 times in the last year. When Ryan confronts her, Gina denies being the leak but she knows who it might and unknowingly leads them to Jana Murphy, Joe's acolyte. Meanwhile, Joe continues to feed Micah's fantasies and eliminates perhaps the greatest roadblock to taking over the cult. Joe decides it's time to let the world know he is still alive and sends Emma and Robert to New York City with a message for journalist Carrie Cooke...[button color="red" size="small" link="http://www.fox.com/the-following/" target="blank" ]Official Site[/button]
Micah sees a report on Lily Gray and says he wants to "make a splash" to the world. Joe, of course, feeds into his, letting him make a video to release to the world. They enlist Emma, Robert and a crazy killer named Lance to head to New York to cause havoc at a Carrie Cooke book signing and deliver the video to her. Emma gives Carrie instructions to release the video or she'll be killed.
Max manages to narrow down the list of female FBI agents who could be the leak, which leads them to Gina Mendez. They learn that her security credentials were used to access Debra Parker's files the year before. Ryan confronts Mendez about this. She denies it and heads to her partner Jana's home to find out what's going on.
Mendez confronts Jana, who is not all together, as she had a psychotic breakdown after their first child was born. Jana goes crazy and stabs Mendez. She heads back into her home, where she was entertaining guests, like nothing happened. However, she heads to pack a bag and flee. She doesn't get far, as Mike and Ryan are right behind Mendez. And just when you think they'll get info on Joe's whereabouts from Jana, she kills herself, of course. Mendez, however, is going to be okay.
Mike and Ryan clear the house and take computer files from Jana before the police get to it for their private investigation. That information leads them to Carrie Cooke's book signing in New York, but they couldn't get there in time. And again, as they investigate the scene, they see Lance holding an officer at knifepoint, so of course, police shoot him before Ryan can even get a question out.
When they get back to Ryan's apartment, they see the report with Carrie on the news, even though Carrie told Ryan that Emma didn't say anything to her. When she comes over later, they hook up. Bonding over their lives being threatened.
