The biggest question on everyone’s mind: Did Joe really die in that fire if Purefoy is back as a series regular for Season 2? We can’t exactly reveal the answer to that question (why would we spoil your fun?), as Joe could be back in flashbacks or in some other way that doesn’t necessarily mean he survived the fire — the public definitely thinks he died that day. But the just-released character photos for “The Following” Season 2 certainly add another layer to that mystery.
Purefoy’s character photo shows Joe sporting some serious facial hair. If he did survive the fire, is he living incognito with one heck of a beard? Or did Joe have the fuzzy face years ago?
“The Following” Season 2 premieres Sunday, Jan. 19 immediately after the NFC Championship Game (approx. 10:30 p.m. ET) on FOX.
