'The Following' finale packs killer twist

Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) watches Claire (Natalie Zea) on the season finale of "The Following."

What just happened? Things finally calmed down on Fox's serial killer series, "The Following," on Monday night, but it was more like the calm before the storm.

Sure, it seemed as though Ryan had saved the day, saved Claire and saved a good portion of humanity by battling Joe to his explosive end -- well, his presumed end. That wasn't, however, the end of the episode.

There was still a finale twist in store -- complete with a decoy.

Emma was still out there after all, and she was none too happy to hear the news about Joe. But in the last moments, someone else upstaged her.

Just as Ryan and Claire were ready to settle down to a relaxing, killer-free meal, Molly -- Joe's supporter and Ryan's ex -- barged in and stabbed both Ryan and Claire!

No, really.

And now the long wait for season two begins.
