‘Wayward Pines’ Episode Guide (July 20): Theo and Xander Vow to Stop Jason

“Walcott Prep” (07/20/16) – Pilcher recalls finding his Chosen One. Then, as the Abbies close in, Jason makes a fatal judgment call and Theo and Xander must put aside their differences to stop him before the human race is lost in an all-new episode of “Wayward Pines” airing Wednesday, July 20 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Guest starring in this episode are Toby Jones as David Pilcher; Tim Griffin as Adam Hassler; Christopher Meyer as Mario; Michael Garza as Frank; Emma Tremblay as Lucy; Siobhan Fallon Hogan as Arlene Moran; and Amitai Marmorstein as Oscar.

“Wayward Pines,” last summer’s No. 1 scripted series on broadcast television, returns for a second season Wednesday, May 25 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. From executive producer M. Night Shyamalan (“The Sixth Sense,” “The Visit”), the 10-episode, psychological thriller is based on the rich world created by author Blake Crouch in his international best-selling series of books.

Starring Jason Patric (“Rush,” “Narc”), two-time Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou (“Blood Diamond,” “In America”) and Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Hope Davis (“American Crime,” “The Newsroom”), the 10-episode, second season will pick up after the shocking events of Season One, with the residents of Wayward Pines battling against the iron-fisted rule of the First Generation. Dr. Theo Yedlin (Patric) – a new resident of Wayward Pines – awakens from suspended animation and finds himself in the middle of this rebellion, as he tries to understand what Wayward Pines really is and help preserve the endangered human race.

Also joining the second season are cast members Tom Stevens (“Cedar Cove”), returning from Season One as Jason Higgins, a member of the First Generation and Pilcher’s young acolyte; Nimrat Kaur (“Homeland”) as Rebecca, who has her own secrets she keeps from Theo, her husband; Josh Helman (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past”) as Xander, a resident working to undermine Wayward Pines from within; and Kacey Rohl (“Hannibal”) as Kerry, one of Jason’s lieutenants in the civil war going on in Wayward Pines.

Additionally, several Season One cast members will appear in Season Two, including Terrence Howard (Sheriff Arnold Pope), Carla Gugino (Kate Hewson), Toby Jones (Dr. Jenkins/David Pilcher), Melissa Leo (Nurse Pam), Tim Griffin (Adam Hassler), Shannyn Sossamon (Theresa Burke) and Charlie Tahan (Ben Burke).

Season One of “Wayward Pines” ranked as Summer 2015’s No. 1 broadcast scripted series among Adults 18-49. The series – about a Secret Service agent on a mission to find two missing federal agents in a sleepy Northwest town, and the shocking results of his investigation – ranked among Summer 2015’s Top 10 broadcast programs overall among Adults 18-49. The series earned a multi-platform average audience of 9.4 million, which represents a +145% increase versus its Live+Same Day audience – the largest multi-platform lift versus Live+Same Day ever for a FOX drama.
