There are some times on “Wayward Pines” when it feels like the residents are not too far away from being Keystone Cops. We’re starting to think that the Abbies are the peaceful ones here, mostly because they know to a certain extent how to get along.
For example, on tonight’s episode we had examples of Abbies cooperating to help one another, while at the same time Theo and Rebecca had many an argument about her and Xander while Jason and Kerry go from romance to hostility in an incredibly short period of time. This is without mentioning Jason later trying to be puppetmaster at the hospital when it comes to who should be saved in order of importance. CJ, by and large, was the sole smart one through much of this, and did his part to tell an increasingly indignant Jason that the Abbies know what they are doing. Eventually, he did convince some to believe him.
So it’s clear that the majority of the characters underestimated the Abbies because they were busy dealing with their own nonsense. To go along with that, they also underestimated Margaret evne if there were some signs that she was special, and it’s possible she knew what was going on around her this whole time. That’s not good. If there is one bit of hope, it’s that Adam seems to at least have some understanding as to what is going on here … provided that they actually get the information out of him and then listen to it. For some of these people, that is probably easier said than done.
Overall, cheers to “Wayward Pines” for making at least an entertaining episode, even if it is one that we spent much of the time during it being angry at humanity. Episode Grade: B+.
