Last May, M. Night Shyamalan helped bring Blake Crouch’s Wayward Pines series to the small screen as a ten-episode event. The sci-fi action drama featured a true all star cast including Matt Dillon, Carla Gugino, Juliette Lewis, Terrence Howard, Toby Jones and Oscar winner Melissa Leo. Dillon starred as Ethan Burke, a Seattle secret service agent who wakes from a car crash in the woods outside a quiet Idaho town. Soon we see the town is more of a totalitarian dictatorship with censorship, 24/7 surveillance, and the public “reckoning” of any dissidents. Why is it like this? Burke is finally told the truth by the town doctor, who is actually the town’s founder, David Pilcher (Jones). Able to predict humankind would wipe itself out, and a new terrifying wave of evolution would sweep over us, Pilcher recruited many and kidnapped thousands of others to undergo cryogenic freezing, to be woken up at a later date as the last vestige of humanity. This is Wayward Pines. When everyone was let in on the scheme, it caused a rebellion and soon the walls were breaking down and the “abbies” (mutated former humans) were on the loose. Season one ends with Burke sacrificing himself to destroy the abbies and save his family and the remaining members of the town. Unfortunately the town was left in the hands of the “First Generation”; those born and raised in Wayward Pines, who continue Pilcher’s legacy.

Spoilers ahead…
