‘Wayward Pines’ season 2, episode 4 review: Adam’s return; is Ben really dead?

Wayward -There are many surprises that exist within the world of “Wayward Pines” on Fox, but we gotta admit that one of the biggest ones may have just been seeing Adam return looking very much like he could be some sort of secret caveman.

Tonight’s episode was about more than just a bearded man, though, as we got some more confirmation on Ben … and it wasn’t good news. It definitely now appears more than ever before that we’ve lost the guy, which once again proves that if you were on the first season of the show, odds are that you’re probably not living long here. However, at the same exact time, you can make arguments (we guess) that you didn’t seen this or that, and this is a TV landscape where characters often return. For now, though, we are strongly in the “he’s dead” camp.

We admit that Jason is becoming a more interesting character over time, and when it comes to the people within the town, we’re starting to enjoy the story more. Here’s the problem with tonight: We would be 100% fine of the whole procreation nonsense wasn’t a part of this, mostly because it wasn’t powerful enough storytelling to justify precisely how uncomfortable it was to watch. It certainly does make Megan even less likable of a character, so if that is your goal, success! We at least had an interesting cliffhanger with the lights going out, and there being at least one Abbie now within the town.

Ultimately, the great news we’ve got for “Wayward Pines” is that it is starting to find its voice a little bit in its second season, even if it has taken a little bit of time for this to happen. As for whether or not this is going to be enough to satisfy season 1 fans, that is what we cannot tell you with absolute certainty right now. Grade: B-.
