Wayward Pines S2E3 Review

Geeked Out Nation
Another season one cast member, Melissa Leo, returns this week.

S2E3 "Once Upon a Time in Wayward Pines"

The big news in the town this week is that the abbies seem to have gone. What's going on? Pam returns, showing up in Jason's house, and it is revealed that Jason was groomed to lead Wayward Pines.

It is revealed that Pam raised Jason, and as a result, he quickly does what she wants. Pam meets Theo, and it is an interesting dynamic. I am very glad that Melissa Leo is back, as she was probably the best actress on the show last year. Only Hope Davis even compares.

Flashback shows a birthday party of Jason's. There are the expected feelings of being like the "chosen one", and Megan attempts to replace Pam in Jason's life. Theo visits Pam's house, and it is an unusual scene, because she is usually the one in power in a scene she is in, but this time that is reversed.

I really enjoyed a flashback where Pam pleaded to Jason's humanity, as it was very intense. Theo has rescued the town by keeping Pam from spreading smallpox, so with this skill he has, shouldn't he have more political power in Wayward Pines?

Jason kills Pam, and it is very personal for him. Theo thinks about what happened without him, something very different than Ethan had experienced last season, as both Theresa and Ben would join him in Wayward Pines.

This episode finally improved upon the first two of the season, with the return of Melissa Leo and further exploration into the characters of Jason and Theo. It was a really good episode.
