I am usually not a fan of kids on TV shows (cough Carl cough) but I actually like Joey so far on The Following. He is not just written as a part that keeps finding trouble in order to drive the plot. Hopefully, he continues to be an evolving character and is reunited with his Mom sooner rather than later.
Side Note: Kyle Catlett, who plays Joey, is fluent in speaking English, Russian and Mandarin Chinese. That’s pretty impressive.
