    It only took one degree of Kevin Bacon to spoil "The Following's" latest stomach-turning twist.

    "To all the fans abroad and late watchers I'm truly sorry I retweeted a spoiler," the actor tweeted Wednesday. "I just wasn't thinking. Won't happen again. #MyBad."

    For good measure, he also posted a Vine video of him repeating "my bad" three times.

    WATCH: Joe Carroll starts to unravel

    Bacon's haunted ex-FBI agent, Ryan Hardy, isn't a member of the cult of worship that has formed around serial killer Joe Carroll, played by James Purefoy.

    Well, not that we know of, anyway. No, Hardy just let the druggie who killed his dad die of an overdose.

    Purefoy, meanwhile, apparently had no such issues containing his enthusiasm, simply tweeting yesterday: "Thank you to all the the followers of #TheFollowing for their impressions of last night's Ep. Incredible reactions. You are so damn smart."
