WAYWARD PINES: Congratulations, Sheriff Burke!

Were you surprised by the killing of Wayward Pines’ sheriff Pope (Terrence Howard) last week?
“Our Town, Our Laws” saw Ethan (Matt Dillon) taking the sheriff’s life after he threatened his wife and son at the town’s limits.
It seems Pope was anxious to prevent the Burkes from leaving, or to prevent something else from entering the creepy town.
Was Pope’s death a case of pride coming before a fall? The former ice-cream loving sheriff insisted the town was his, despite taking orders from a higher and unseen power.
Will Ethan find himself in the same position when he in turn is handed the role upon his return to the town center in “One of Our Senior Realtors Has Chosen to Retire”?
In this behind the scenes video, the cast and crew speculate on what’s next for Ethan. Will his position finally allow him access to the town’s secrets, or will he find his duties as sheriff too much to bear? It looks like his first order will be the reckoning (i.e. public execution) of Peter McCall (guest star Justin Kirk), a “traitor” who painted graffiti on Main Street.
Will Ethan be forced to carry out the order, and will McCall be able to shed light on what’s really going on in Wayward Pines before he dies?
The “One of Our Senior Realtors Has Chosen to Retire” episode of Wayward Pines airs Thursday June 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
