"Everything is out of her love for Joe Carrol," says Valorie Currie (Denise). "If that means murder then that means murder."
Carrol's young son Joey is also a key character in the show and, like the rest of the cult, is trapped between good and evil.
"He doesn't know what to do, where to go, who to trust or who to listen to or believe, anything," says Kyle Catlett.
Brought in to help solve the case is the man who put Carrol behind bars. Played by Kevin Bacon, Ryan Hardy has issues of his own.
"He's a mess, a zombie, drinking too much, has very little focus in his life," says Kevin Bacon.
"The Following" is far from just a psychological thriller. Throughout the season will come a storyline of drama, suspense and even love.
"You hopefully wanna know what's making me tick, the serial killer tick, why would his wife have lived with him knowing what he was doing then once I bust him have an affair with me," says Bacon.
Responsible for making movies like "Scream" and shows like "Vampire Diaries", the show's creator says what makes "The Following" so fascinating is that the storyline is true crime.
"As much as I have loved dealing with vampires, at my core what I find scary is someone in my closet waiting for me," says Kevin Williamson. "That is scary."
The actors agree that while the storyline is highly fictional, the element of reality will be key in the show's longevity.
"We want to understand evil because it's true," says Shawn Ashmore. "It's not a crime of passion. It's manipulation and real thought and planning. We think if we can understand it we will protect those that we love."
If you missed the premiere, you can see an encore of it on Friday night. 14 new episodes begin Monday at 8pm right here on FOX17.

Man pleads guilty to Memphis officer's murder
May 21, 2013 22:22 GMT
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A former death row inmate is set to be released from prison after he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder of a Memphis police officer.
Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich said Tuesday that she has accepted Timothy McKinney's guilty plea.
McKinney was convicted of first-degree murder for the fatal shooting of Officer Don Williams. The officer was killed outside a comedy club in December 1997.
McKinney appealed and won a new trial, which ended with a deadlocked jury. A third trial earlier this year also ended in a hung jury.
The Commercial Appeal reports that McKinney was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Since he's already served more than 15 years -- including 11 on death row -- McKinney will be released this week.
Williams' family opposed the settlement.
