Wayward Pines Sneak Peek: A Picture Is Worth... a Couple of Deaths?

This Thursday on Wayward Pines (Fox, 9/8c), Ben Burke (played by Charlie Tahan) gets schooled on the town’s big secrets — one of which is glimpsed in this exclusive sneak peek.

While his father Ethan (unbeknownst to him) explores the area just beyond the perimeter fence, Ben’s second day at Wayward Pines Academy kicks off with a lesson on the town’s very, very strange history.

As seen in the video above, Mrs. Fisher (guest star Hope Davis) begins that deep dive with a slideshow that promises to explain exactly what the electrified fence is protecting the townfolk from! That reveal, however, Ben will later learn, is only half of the far-out story….

      Thanks for the insightful comment. I haven’t read the books, but tell me, did they start with a full explanation of what was going on or did the books keep it a mystery for awhile like the TV show? You know, to make it suspenseful and entertaining.

        They kept it a mystery for 60% of the first book. There are 3 books so there is a ton of story even after the residents figure out what is really going on. The books are real nail biters all the way to the fabulous ending!

    Okay, so the big reveal happened this week in Wayward Pines. I want to note again how it is so different from the books. Theresa arrived in this town only to discover her husband, Ethan, was again with Kate. For some reason now, Theresa seems to have no problem with Ethan not with her most of the time. Ethan, a trained U.S. Secret Service Agent, is outside the town in the forest with a shotgun shooting blindly at any small noise. We find Ben, Ethan and Theresa`s son at high school with two other students in a session with their teacher, Mrs. Fisher, revealing the truth about Wayward Pines. It turns out they are in the year 4028. The last remaining humans are contained in this small town of Wayward Pines, that somehow has the resources for unlimited energy, gas and car parts for all the vehicles in town, an unlimited supply of food and beverages for everyone with no farms or anything, and the ability to purify water and run it through the town. In any case, back at the high school Ben and the other two students are given old quarters dated 2095 as the proof of the last relics of global human civilization. This has to be legit because it is impossible to fake coins, right? This has to be solid proof they are in the future. Okay, next the students are told about the Abbies, who are so vicious they can even kill an armed trained soldier. Yet, for some reason they just can’t kill a U.S. Secret Sevice Agent named Ethan, who by the way, knows nothing about abbies, but is still able to outsmart them. He even spends a good night`s sleep in their territory in the forest. Theresa seems to have no concern whatsoever Ethan is gone for two days. Okay, so we have Theresa as the new realtor in town. All homes are monitored with microphones and cameras, but we learn if you want to hide from them in your own home just turn on your washing machine. How did Theresa even know to do this and that it would work? Okay, back at the high school Ben and his two classmates are told the truth can never be told to their parents or any adults. The children are the first generation of Waywaward Pines. Uhm, why bring the adults there in the first place, then? I mean if you are going to bring the adults, wouldn’t it be much easier if they knew the truth and you saved them? Not to mention less crime and tension, if they knew the truth. So, we end the show with a helicopter flying out to Ethan. Dr. Jenkins comes out of it and reveals he is David Pilcher, the scientist that built Wayward Pines. Okay, one final thought, just how are they fueling this helicopter, and where do they obtain the parts to maintain it?
