The Following Creator and EP Kevin Williamson spoils some stunning insight into the series' twisted love triangle between Emma, Paul and Jacob. The trio of kidnappers has been heating up since week 1 and the last episode left us with a three of them not only hooking up, but solidified a more nurturing bond around Jacob. Emma and Paul had both previously had relationships with Jacob, and the Williamson reveals that them hooking up wasn't just about sex.

"It was more about caring than sex," Williamson says. "Emma laughs, in that scene. They're disrobing, they kiss, and she laughs. I love her, and I love when she laughs as he pulls her in. I wanted it to be impulsive."

Valorie Curry continues with some spoilery tidbits about what drives Joe Carroll's followers and their seemingly unwavering devotion.

"There are constantly power struggles going on within the cult, even after the threesome," Valorie Curry says. "Emma has emerged as the ringleader, and she knows her place, as far as seniority. Nico and Adan and I joke that we're like 'The Wizard of Oz.' Jacob is the heart, Paul is the courage, and Emma is the brains." She laughs. "That might make Kevin Bacon Dorothy. I'm not sure. Obviously, James Purefoy is the man behind the curtain." Curry foes on to reveal, "I had a struggle with myself as an actor in the early stages of this, because I wanted to understand what Emma was doing for real and what Emma was doing for Joe Carroll. What's true? What I realized is that it's all true. It's just that the truth changes from one minute to the next. She loves Jacob, and at first she loved him because Joe gave him to her, and that made him precious. But she's also a human being, a girl who has been with him since she was 18 years old, and she does love him. She loves Paul, and she manipulates him, but she loves him too. The most important love is Joe," says Curry. "That's what makes my heart break for her, and why I don't see her as this monster that other people do. She's a girl who loves this one man, as a father, as a lover, as a god, as everything. And he just positions her however suits his needs. She has true feelings for Jacob and Paul, but she has to use them. And she has to break them."
