For those of you who were hoping for the “Wayward Pines” premiere to be a little crazy and then some, you may have gotten what you wanted Wendesday night. While we do think that the first episode was problematic at points (we still don’t understand fully the decision to bring the show back), we do think Theo could make a captivating lead and a nice lens to view this world in the wake of what happened to Ethan season 1.
Next week’s new episode is going to specifically highlight some of the dangers of the outside world, and also show how indoctrinated some are being against the Abbies. Jason is the leader of the town, and while we certainly perceive him as not a nice dude, does everyone else? We’re interested in diving more into his story.
For now, the syopsis below, coupled with the promo, do a good job highlighting what lies ahead:
“As Theo fights to make sense of his new life in Wayward Pines, he recognizes his value as the only surgeon in town and uses it as leverage to get answers to the many questions he has about the status of his wife, Rebecca, and the truth about the town from First Generation leader Jason Higgins. CJ Mitchum (Djimon Hounsou), an original resident of Wayward Pines and a historian for the town with extensive knowledge of its complex origins, is the one person who can provide a unique bridge between the current world of Wayward Pines and the previous world that humans inhabited. Meanwhile, Megan Fisher heads up the research being conducted on the Abbies, Theresa (guest star Shannyn Sossamon) frantically searches for her son, Ben (guest star Charlie Tahan), and CJ Mitchum spearheads a vital and potentially deadly project outside the fence.”
