Season 1 of Wayward Pines ends with both a bang and a whimper. The human race at the height of its power and technology couldn't stop the rise of the mutant aberrations, but they can't handle one unfrozen dude with one backpack of C4? Bulls#*t.
After finally getting his wife and ex-tootsie on the same page, Ethan discovers they don't call them “mad” scientists for nothing. And there's something to that "children of the damned" phrase, too. The penultimate Wayward Pines recap has arrived.
Sometimes the ticking time bomb is a stolen pick-up truck. Can Ethan stop it before the conspirators let the abbies in? And is Ben gone for good or only mostly dead?
Now that Ethan knows the truth, will he be able to stop the conspirators from taking down the fence without have to reckon them?
WAYWARD PINES: The Crying of Plot 33
We've been promised “the truth,” but lots of shows make promises they can't keep. Will Wayward Pines deliver? And will it be enough to convince Ethan and his family to accept the Wayward Pines way of life forever?
Wayward Pines has a nifty jobs plan that pretty much guarantees 100% employment through murder. Also, the schools are REALLY into teaching to the test.
In week three, Ethan's wife and kid find themselves sucked into Wayward Pines, but Ethan doesn't bother to tell them anything that might keep them from getting killed. Shockingly, that plan backfires on him. Before it's all over, someone is dead and a perfectly good escape attempt is ruined.
In the second episode of Wayward Pines, Ethan and Beverly fail to escape, but at least they get an awkward and inexplicable dinner invitation out of it. Also, you'll be totally shocked to learn the sheriff is a bad guy.
Welcome to Wayward Pines. It's got a two-word title and northwestern exposure like Twin Peaks, people are stuck in a mysterious place like Lost, and it has secret agents like The Prisoner. The only things missing are humor, originality, wit and irony. But it's an M. Night Shyamalan joint so what did you expect?
