Wayward Pines Sneak Peek: Is Ethan Prepared to Lay Down the Law?

The events of Fox’s latest Wayward Pines episode will have significant ramifications for Wayward Pines itself, as revealed in this exclusive video previewing Episode 4 (airing Thursday at 9/8c).

As we saw at the close of Thursday’s episode, ding-dong, Sheriff Pope is dead, felled by the one-two punch of the his own cruiser’s fender and then a gunshot fired by Ethan. (And let’s not forget, his corpse was then taken away by… something.) That creates a power vacuum in the Idaho town, to be near-instantly filled by… the lawman’s killer himself.

Hell, Ethan even gets a cake to commemorate the new gig!

Alas, not all is sweet about the sheriff’s life, Ethan quickly learns. Because sometimes there must be a literal reckoning…. Press play above for the full sneak peek from Matt Dillon, Justin Kirk (“Peter”) and others.

    Only two more episodes before the big reveal, I can’t wait. What a great idea, to give us the secret mid-way through and then watch the fall out for the rest of the season. Very novel and new which is what TV needs.
