Yet another villain whose plan is to get captured. I'm so past being able to accept that one it's not funny. I'm going to try the second pilot, i.e., the first regular series episode. Purefoy doesn't convince us that he's smart enough to plan this crap. And since he's apparently just going to rant and emote at Kevin Bacon, the show is going to rise or fall on its temp characters, the titular Following, the Carroll cultists. If they're believable and interesting, the show might overcome its bloodlust. The gore is a turnoff, it's not entertaining.
His "plan" wasn't getting captured. Realistically, getting captured is inevitable for someone like him, in the USA in 2013, so he accepted that from the start, after doing what he set out to do.

I'm not fully buying into the show yet either though.
