It is refreshing to see the two of them working together for a common cause and even helping each other at certain moments. When they hear Claire screaming, Ryan and Joe run in hurry to save her, but it turns out to be a trap.
As soon as they untie her, the twins gas the room. Ryan, Joe and Claire end up tied to a chair and game time begins for the twins. During a violent game of truth, Carroll finds out that his ex-wife killed his beloved Emma Hill Valorie Curry. Mark and Luke are forcing Ryan and Joe to speak about their biggest demons and surprisingly, a lot of truth comes out. As the twins tell Hardy, that it is the height of the irony that he became the man he hates and is no better than the killers he hunts, Ryan admits that he is not a good person.
All because of a tragic event in his childhood, Ryan has been on a life-long killing spree. When Hardy was 17 years old, his father was killed. Ryan then tracked down the killer and murdered him. Joe reveals that Ryan is probably so fixated on him, because he has been seeking redemption ever since he killed the man, who was responsible for the death of his father.
Game time is over when Mike and Max come to the rescue. When Luke tries to lock Claire into a closet, she fights back and escapes. Mike finds Mark and tells him that he is the one, who actually killed Lily, not Ryan.
He just starts hitting Mike, when Max comes in and kills him. Joe finds his ex-wife, apologizes for everything he has done and begs for her forgiveness.
As Joe angrily hangs up, Ryan tells Debra Joe's unraveling, know realizing the bunker was a huge win. Nick then shows up with information about a Daniel Monroe, a former militia who the FBI have been tracking for a while. They go to his house and find him and his brother Brian Fowler there. Before they can question them, Vince shows up and after Ryan kills him, Joe appears and, having killed Daniel, holds Mike hostage intending on torturing him unless Ryan talks with him.
He asks what motivated Ryan and Ryan says his father was murdered by a drug dealer and Joe notes they are both motivated by death despite Ryan's claims and they are more alike than they know. As Jacob shows up with Debra as a hostage, Joe walks out and forces Ryan to back off less Debra dies. After they escape, Ryan consoles Mike about everything knowing he's frustrated over everything but is alright.
After Mike is taken to the hospital, the Sheriff, who really is Roderick, says he's offering his help. In the morning, after Mike returns and tries to stop Roderick after revealing his true identity, Ryan and the team desperately try to find him know knowing he's a follower.
Ryan uses the news to lure a follower of Joe's to come clean and they get their life back. Later, Roderick is found on the road and taken into custody. In interrogation, Ryan discovers Roderick kidnapped Joey as "insurance" over Joe and after a talk with Joe on the phone, realizes Roderick is telling the truth.
Roderick however, will only give Joey's location if he gets his freedom. Nick refuses stating he killed two state troopers, but Ryan, determined to keep his promise to Claire, takes Roderick with him on the condition he leave his gun and phone behind. They arrive at the location and as Ryan frees Joey, Roderick pulls a gun out intent on double-crossing them both till Mike, who followed them, save them before Joe's men kill Roderick from behind.
After Mike hides Joey, Ryan engages a follower and manages to kill him, but Jacob found and took Joey away. He finds them and tries to persuade Jacob to let Joey go, stating he knows he cares for Joey, but Joe doesn't care whether he lives or dies.
He goes closer and tries to talk Jacob to ending this now, but Jacob left, but agreed with Ryan and allowed Joey to go free. Joey recognizes Ryan and how Claire told him Ryan is one of the good guys. Ryan then carries Joey away back to the station in safety. Later that night, Joe calls him about how his book will need a rewrite and their story has taken a "turn" about how bad it is and that it's not been a good day.
When Ryan asks about Claire, Joe says she's no longer the lead lady nor will she ride off in the sunset with her as planned and that it's time for her to die, horrifying Ryan. Just then, a follower named Melissa shows up intent on doing what Ryan asked, but reveals her true nature when she stabs Nick in his eye as Ryan and Mike kill her.
The next day, with the information Joey gave on the house he was held in, Ryan and the FBI rush Joe's home, only to find a dead body of a follower and an empty house.Ryan confesses love for Joe Carroll
After the incident with the reck-center, as many followers are killed and civilians as well, Ryan receives word that Debra has been captured. They receive a phone call from Parker, who has been buried alive.
Ryan and Mike go to the park via what info Parker could give, to which they are ambushed by Alex Lipton, the man who buried Debra. However, they are too late as Debra died. In grief, and hearing Alex mocking over her death, Ryan murders Alex in cold blood. Afterwards, Mike discovers Carroll's unfinished manuscript in her coffin, which leads Ryan to a location where Emma drugs and captures him.

Their fight takes them to a boathouse where a rogue gunshot ignites tanks of gasoline; Hardy manages to escape as the building explodes with Carroll trapped inside. The FBI believes Carroll is dead due to the body dental records, and Hardy takes Claire back to his apartment where they intend to celebrate.
Ryan has food delivered, to which at the moment he hears a noise, his neighbor Molly appears and stabs him in the stomach. Revealing herself as a follower, Molly states Ryan was always her chapter.
Just then, Claire enters the room and screams seeing Ryan and is stabbed from behind to which Ryan screams out her name. After Claire falls to the ground Molly stabs her again in the chest.
Ryan removes the blade just in time and strangles Molly and snaps her neck. Ryan manages to get a phone and call an ambulance for him and Claire to which Ryan passes out when they arrive. After the surgery, Mike enters to a now conscious Ryan. When Ryan questions what happened to Claire, Mike, with tears in his eyes informs him of what happened to her, to which a distraught Ryan sheds a lone tear over her death.
Mike would regularly visit, but was unable to help him. During this time Ryan met an old book publisher friend named Carrie Cooke to which they had an encounter when they slept together, but like the typical Ryan Hardy, he was too drunk to remember. Seeing how he treats himself, Carrie got to him mentioning that Joe is the one getting to him and that if he doesn't want to keep letting Joe get to him he needs to enter rehab and get sober.
Realizing she's right and that Claire wouldn't want this, Ryan got sober and has stayed sober since the opening of Season 2. However, his obsession with Joe has never left, as Ryan has been secretly tracking his followers and the belief that Joe is alive. He later became a professor at the New York University with a successful career though Ryan stated he did this cause he knew Joe would be angered by him.

However, back in his home, he continues his secret interest in Joe and the case along with his niece, Max Hardy, a New York City detective.
Ryan reveals he found the location of an old follower named Carlos Perez, to which Ryan finds he is one of the three of the subway massacre. He captures Perez and questions Joe's whereabouts.

He looks through the bag and finds a Joe Carroll mask and puts it in his office, full of information on Joe and his cult, to which Ryan spends regularly in and starring at a picture of Claire, still in love with her and blaming himself over her death.
The following day he meets Lily Graythe only survivor of the subway massacre. They converse with her knowing nothing of what happened. Eventually, Ryan's activities have been called into question by Agent Gina Mendezwho warns Ryan not to get involved unless he has something they need.
Mike discovers of Ryan's possessions of Perez's bag and takes it, but not before hearing of the possibility of Joe being alive when Ryan reveals that Joe had a half-brother with identical DNA. Later, after finding that Lily Gray is being targeted again, Ryan rushes to save her.
The twins continue to draw Ryan's attention by having him show up at a benefit event where the only survivor of the subway murders and new interest of Ryan, Lily Gray, is speaking.
After an attempted attack, Ryan helps Lily go unharmed and shoots Luke in the arm, with the only other injury being to Lily's assistant, David. The twins escape as Luke tends to his injury.
