Slide 1 of 7 | View On One Page

Fox’s 10-part limited run Wayward Pines series has been a fun summer ride that has been as entertaining as it is been well-plotted. Sadly the ride ends this week as Ethan and company seem to find themselves in a predicament that could be too hard to overcome. Yet before we see how (and if) they get around it, we wanted to look back at some of the show’s best, creepiest and overall shocking plot points. Here are the 12 best moments from Wayward Pines:

Bonus:  The Introduction

Ethan Burke’s (Matt Dillon) introduction to the world of Wayward Pines was probably more jarring for him than us, but that’s also not to say it wasn’t a little bit of a mind trip for viewers. The beauty of the series is that as Ethan learns things so do we as viewers, with a handful of exceptions (that come later on in the series).

Our initial view of the town of Wayward Pines is a curious one. We have no idea what is really going on, but it seems a little too perfect and picturesque. Ethan agrees with that account and so begins our journey. Knowing what we know now it wouldn’t be out of the realm of imagination to want to go back and re-watch the series from the start because it is safe to say we either missed things or would get more value out of seeing them in a different light.

12. Adam Hassler

Adam Hassler’s (Tim Griffith) has seemingly been the one missing piece even after Ethan learns the truth behind the town. Despite the time jumps, the Abbies and the two-tier society reveals the timeline that Hassler interacting with David Pilcher (Toby Jones) still needed to be flushed out.

Yet in episode nine it begins to make sense. Whatever deal Hassler and Pilcher made resulted in Hassler also coming along on the journey as well. The two clearly have some sort of agenda, but what made Hassler end up outside the walls though is a new mystery that should be solved in the finale. For now though, seeing him in 4028 was definitely a shock and a nice twist.
