In the latest episode, we got the conversation the season had been building up to between Ryan (Kevin Bacon) and Joe (James Purefoy), with Joe acknowledging that they just can't kill each other, though Ryan did warn him that he would see him one more time. Meanwhile, Mike (Shawn Ashmore) came face to face with Lily (Connie Nielsen), and after several tense moments, he killed her instead of taking her into custody as Ryan and Max (Jessica Stroup) watched. Finally, Claire (Natalie Zea) delivered a message to Joe through Carrie Cookie (Sprague Grayden). So what's next?

In this next episode of "The Following," Joe puts his final plan into action, threatening many lives, and Ryan and Mike go to great lengths to stop him and keep more innocent people from dying. Meanwhile, Claire makes a decision that leads her into dangerous territory, and Mark (Sam Underwood) and Luke try to figure out their next move. How will the twins react to Lily's death?

The "Silence" promo shows that Claire has one plan: trap and kill Joe to make sure she and her son are safe. So how is Joe going to respond to Claire's message? Is Emma (Valorie Curry) telling Joe, "It's a trick," in response to that message? Well, it looks like Emma's going to be the one tasked with going after Claire. Will both of them make it out of this episode alive?

Meanwhile, Joe and his followers take over a church service, and someone is going to be going up in flames in front of the FBI. But what's going to happen when Joe has a gun on Mike and is counting down? The promo teases there's "a stunning twist you won't see coming," but what part of the episode features this twist?

Plus, check out the slideshow to see the promotional photos FOX has released from this episode. You can see Joe in the church, the FBI outside, Ryan and Mike on the hunt, and Mike with Max.

"The Following" season 2 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on FOX. What do you think of these episode 14 "Silence" photos and promo?
