'The Following' Finale Preview: Joe Carroll Unleashes His 'Final Chapter' (VIDEO)

Fox's "The Following" will air its Season 1 finale on Monday, April 29 at 9 p.m. ET, and as the twisted tale reaches its climax, Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) will unleash his final chapter on Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon) and the FBI -- but who will survive the showdown?

The penultimate episode left Agent Parker (Annie Parisse) chillingly buried alive by Joe's followers, while Emma (Valorie Curry) definitively chose her mentor over her lover by slitting Jacob's (Nico Tortorella) throat after he suggested the duo should abandon Joe's cult. In preparation for his confrontation with Ryan, Joe kidnapped ex-wife Claire (Natalie Zea) and headed out to sea, and as the finale preview above shows, she'll be caught in a very precarious position in the season's final hour. But no matter what happens in the finale, one thing is certain: There will be blood.

Do you think Ryan will triumph against Joe in "The Following's" Season 1 finale? Who will survive "The Final Chapter"? Weigh in below!
