Warning: This article contains spoilers from Season 2 of Wayward Pines. If you haven’t seen the latest episode then I’d advise you to stop reading now. I don’t want to spoil anything for you, that really would be the end of the world.
Last night’s episode of sent shockwaves through social media following that devastating revelation about Kerry. Also, let’s not forget that the town residents are preparing for a new chapter in their story that will change things forever. What’s even more worrying is that while all the Kerry drama is happening, the abbies are preparing for an unforgettable attack.
If the residents of Wayward Pines don’t get their act together quickly, they’re going to be in some serious trouble. With the season finale less than a week away, let’s take another look at the most spine-tingling moments from last night’s episode.
1. Kerry Is Jason’s Mother
Well, nobody saw that one coming. Told through a series of flashbacks, we see town creator David Pilcher at the hospital, ready to pick up a newborn child. We know this child to be Jason, the current leader of Wayward Pines. The doctor asks Pilcher to visit the mother of the child and he complies. After entering the hospital room, the mother is revealed to be Kerry.
This Game Of Thrones level twist means that Jason has actually been in a relationship with his mother this whole time. While this sounds a little like a storyline out of a soap opera, Wayward Pines handled it incredibly well and, believe it or not, it was actually rather believable. When Jason discovers that Kerry is his biological mother, he confronts her and matters only continue to get worse.
2. The Gunshot
Jason is infuriated that Kerry never told him that she’d previously had a child. She has no idea that Jason is actually her son, but she tries to calm him down, resulting in a struggle. Kerry then attempts to remove the gun from Jason’s hand and after another struggle, we hear a loud gunshot.
At the very end of the episode, Kerry and Jason are seen lying in a pool of blood and although it isn’t obvious to the viewer who was actually shot, it appears as if Jason took the bullet. The tyrannic leader has met his demise.
3. Cryogenic Suspension
Upon realizing that the abbies are closer than ever, Jason makes an executive decision to ensure the survival of the last remaining members of the human race — everybody will be returning to the pods for cryogenic suspension. Everyone will go back to sleep for several thousand years in the hope that when they eventually wake, the abbies will have become an extinct species.
The town citizens become worried when they realize that the abbies’s arrival is imminent, but CJ manages to convince them all that there is no other way — their survival is vital if mankind is to continue.
4. There Aren’t Enough Pods
After CJ convinces the population of Wayward Pines that cryogenic suspension is their only hope of survival, he discovers a major kink in the plan — all the pods aren’t working. In fact, only half of them are functioning, meaning that only half the residents of Wayward Pines will be saved.
Theo disapproves of Jason’s decision to choose the survivors based on their health status, but Jason won’t back down. It makes us wonder if Theo or Kerry will continue with this plan during the finale — if they do then that’s over 500 people that will be left to die.
5. The Abbies Prepare To Invade Wayward Pines
Kerry tells Jason that there are over a thousand abbies lined up outside the town fence, . Later, Margaret, the leader of the abbie species, appears to be fully healed from the gunshot wound she received last week. She screeches at the top of her lungs and all of the abbies look on. It’s a signal — this is it, the attack on Wayward Pines has begun.
Check out the preview of the finale below:
What becomes of Wayward Pines remains to be seen, but the abbies want revenge and, more importantly, they want their territory back. The attack is imminent and Margaret is now healthy enough to lead her pack to victory.
reaches its conclusion next week, but whether or not the supernatural series will be back for a third season remains to be seen. Either way, a revolution will happen in the finale, but which species will succeed? The humans or the abbies?
