'Wayward Pines' S1E7: Betrayal

★ ★ ★ ★ With Ethan — and us — being fully aware of the going-ons of Wayward Pines, and the lack of a human civilization beyond the walls, he, of course, goes against Pilcher’s wishes and tells Theresa and Kate about their situation. The whole episode was reminiscent of the first few episodes as the topic of Ethan’s insanity came up again as a means to question his motives. Additionally, Kate is suspicious that Ethan has been compromised. What prompts Ethan’s investigation into Kate’s insurgent group? A car bomb... on his car. Using his training, he's able to tell his car has been toyed with and removes the bomb from the car engine. The close call allows him to very quickly figure out who's involved in the group. Ethan tracks down a former explosives expert with ties to Kate and Harold. Quickly discerning their BS, he takes out most of their operation in fast fashion. Only recently introduced, the insurgent group has become more a problem-of-the-week than a foe for the rest of the season (although I’m sure there’s more to come). It’s even more surprising that none of the Wayward Pines overlords were able to do this on their own, given that Ethan figured everything out in a day. Meanwhile, Theresa explores more of Plot 33, where she discovers a metallic structure beneath the ground. She still hasn’t told Ethan about this, but it would seem that a bomb threat has more gravity than this. Plot 33 is the only mystery in the show now, so I’m excited to see what Theresa is going to discover there. Also looking forward to her replacing her boss eventually. Kate’s distrust of Ethan is surprisingly misplaced. While she has just reason to believe that he was compromised, he hasn’t Reckoned them yet which I think proves him to be a different person than Pope was. It’s still not evident why people would hate Ethan considering the fact that hasn't done anything wrong so far. He’s certainly better than Pope. At this point, I think it’s simply because Pope had the town fearing him rather than being able to express themselves. Ben’s school certainly knows how to get creepy. In a "biology" course, Mrs. Fisher is teaching the children about procreation and how to sustain a population within Wayward Pines. Again, it’s still a little confusing why this is not yet happening in the town. I’m pretty sure if you can force adults to pick up their phones and then hunt down someone for a Reckoning you could also get them to do other things. Wayward Pines could already be sustainable! Yet it’s not! That responsibility falls upon the First. The teenagers of the town are apparently eager enough do biology "extra-credit" that it’s a wonder the teenage pregnancy rate is not higher. Amy and Ben plan to do some "extra-credit" and end up in the same truck as the music box bomb. While Ethan is able to take out the rest of the threats (mainly the one by the fence) way too easily, he isn't able to save Amy and Ben from getting hit by the blast. Both kids get thrown out of the truck, yet Ben is somehow the only one to be seriously injured. If Ben doesn’t make it out of this, it could prove to be fatal for Kate and her group. p { text-align: justify; }

Wayward Pines Recap: You Dropped a Bomb on Me

  Now that Wayward Pines has gone through not one, but two episodes a great one and a not-so-great one explaining the abbies and the 2,000-year time jump and how could Pilcher and everybody survive so long in suspended animation and all that stuff, we can now finally get back to the action.   Once again going super-on-the-nose with an episode title, Betrayal has several characters defying wishes and going behind backs, with many of them either trying to keep some peace or find answers. Ethan disobeys Pilchers instructions about not informing people of everything he knows, immediately telling Theresa, and later Kate, what lies beyond that fence. However, Theresa and Kates refusal to believe him proves Pilchers point about people not being able to handle the truth.   Read More... //
