Tonight, FOX is taking viewers back to that creepy town of Wayward Pines, as some new residents are starting to wake up to discover all is not as it seems. As the first season came to a close, David Pilcher decided that Group B had failed his social experiment and that it was time to burn things to the ground and start anew. So he turned off all of the power, allowing the blood-thirsty Abbies to climb over the wall and clean up the “mess.” The aftermath left many dead, including David Pilcher and Ethan Burke – the man who helped open people’s eyes to what was truly going on in the town. Kate Hewson, the woman behind the revolt, managed to survive, along with Pilcher’s henchwomen Nurse Pam and Megan Fisher. It seemed like things might take a turn for the better now that Philcher was out of the picture, but the show then cut to three years later, where Ben Burke, Ethan’s son, awoke from a coma to discover that the first generation of native-born Wayward Pines teenagers had taken over control of the town and were governing it using the same fear and denial tactics that Pilcher had.
The second season picks up shortly afterwards, with Ben and some others trying to lead a rebellion to overthrow this first generation and allow the residents of Wayward Pines to live freely and not in fear – at least not of their fellow people, because there are still the Abbies to worry about. At the same time, Group C is starting to be thawed out and introduced into the population. Tonight we are introduced to one of those new residents, our new protagonist Dr. Theo Yedlin (Jason Patric), who finds himself in a similar confused state as Ethan Burke displayed in the opening moments of the first season.
I thoroughly enjoyed the first season, and I guess a lot of others did as well, because the show is back despite the fact that it was only supposed to be a single season. I’m a little wary of this second season, as the series has a new showrunner and already went through all of the material from the original book trilogy in the first season. However, I’m hoping they can continue to bring the creepiness and surprises in this second season. I just hope the characters I loved from the first season survive long enough to make it through this season, as this is a show that’s not afraid to kill off characters, especially if they are played by well-known actors!
On tonight’s premiere, “Enemy Lines,” Dr. Theo Yedlin awakens from suspended animation and finds himself in the middle of a rebellion in Wayward Pines.
Catch the introduction of Dr. Yedlin tonight on FOX at 9/8c.
I’ll also be watching/recording The Price Is Right Primetime Special – The Amazing Race Edition, Arrow, and The Americans.
