There is some good news for the residents of Wayward Pines on the season 2 finale of the show — Jason’s reign of frustration was over. This was a guy who played a pretty key role on driving this town straight into the ground, to the point where many of the residents in the finale were forced to confront the idea of a fresh start in the future — again.
For most of the end of the episode, the main focus was figuring out away for many residents to escape through the pods through the future, avoiding the Abbies and getting to see what lives look like so many years into the future. In the process, we saw sacrifices — and a rather tremendous one from Kerry as she opted to throw herself out to the Abbies as the ultimate disease-carrier. After everything she went through, she felt this was the best thing she could offer, and certainly did not want to throw Theo to the wolves in the process.
So with Kerry taking on that role, the town of Wayward Pines quieted itself, and we were left to wait and wonder what would be coming up ahead. For a moment it looked like CJ was going to just run pod termination and end everything altogether, but he eventually decided against it and went into his own pod.
In the end, this was a worthy finale to what was at times an uneven season. So much in science fiction, we talk about moving into the great unknown. There is no better example of such an act that what we saw here. The only weakness to this was a little more of an epic season 3 tease, since you clearly cannot end things right there. This was their chance to send Twitter into a fury, and instead, it was a little more of a “well, I suppose that’s a human baby. Could be interesting.” Finale Grade: B.
