Wayward Pines has been posing an interesting and fairly dichotomous question over the last couple of weeks in the run up to the show’s finale on July 23.
Is it better to be contained, but safe, or free to choose, even if that freedom means death?
It’s a question that has successfully divided opinion among the townsfolk, caused several deaths and brought the abbies, savage genetic aberrations, to the now-breached protective fence surrounding the beleaguered post-apocalyptic town.
While Ethan is desperate to save lives at all costs, others in the town feel a reckoning for those involved in the bomb plot is long overdue – including Class One of Wayward Pines Academy – who have chosen this moment to assert Pilcher’s “clear and severe” methods.
In this following behind the scenes video, cast and crew discuss the show’s big turning point, Pam’s shaken faith in Pilcher and his crusade, and Ethan’s no-win predicament as town sheriff.
The penultimate “A Reckoning” episode of Wayward Pines airs Thursday July 16 9/8c on FOX.
