The 25 Most Damaged Kids On TV

22. Joey Matthews

Portrayed by: Kyle Catlett
Series: The Following
What's his damage: The relative emotional damage of Joey Matthews is more of an assumption on our part because of some rather unimpressive child acting and epically unimpressive writing from The Following’s crack team of scribes.

But we venture a guess that, learning his dad is not only a serial killer, but a lame one that’s pathetically obsessed with Edgar Allen Poe will keep young Joey’s therapy tab in constant use once he’s old enough to process. Plus there’s his extended exposure to the devil’s three-way that is Paul, Emma and Jacob, Carroll acolytes and the world’s worst babysitters who do fun things like teach him how to kill animals to get him on track to be a sociopath just like pops.
