In this next episode of "The Following," Ryan (Kevin Bacon) tries to find the man who originally taught Joe (James Purefoy) to kill in hopes of finding new answers after the tragic events of "Sacrifice."

Meanwhile, Joe tries to get his bearings at the compound, and Emma (Valorie Curry) and Mandy (Tiffany Boone) wait for him to reveal his new plan. What exactly is Joe up to at the compound with this new cult?

The promo for "The Messenger" offers a look at the funeral for Mike's father, and Mike is very much back in, but what will he do? Plus, Ryan goes looking for the man who taught Joe. And what's going on at the compound for Joe, Emma and Mandy?

Plus, there's a "The Messenger" sneak peek (here) that feature a behind-the-scenes look at the episode, which begins with the funeral. At the wake, Director Franklin tells Ryan that he knows there's a mole in the FBI and wants his help, but Ryan makes sure that he calls all the shots. "This episode is going to allow him to go places and do things which he wasn't able to do before, but along the way, he's put into significant jeopardy," writer and supervising producer Alexi Hawley previews. However, when Ryan goes investigating, he gets taken. "It turns out to be my worst nightmare," Bacon teases.

Also, check out the promotional photos FOX has released for this episode in the slideshow to see Ryan going looking for the man who taught Joe, Micah (Jake Weber) and Julia (Jacinda Barrett), guest star Gregg Henry as Dr. Strauss, and Ryan and Max (Jessica Stroup) in the Obsession Room.

"The Following" season 2 airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on FOX. What do you think of the episode 8 "The Messenger" promo, sneak peek and photos?
