Wayward Pines is really shaping up. I guess it's only slated to be a 10 episode story, so almost halfway through.
SPOILER ALERT (guesses only though)
I know it's based on books, so trying to avoid the temptation to find out what's going on (and the show may divert from them anyhow, so better not to
know). My guess is that outside the town is nothing (either post-apocalyptic or some kind of purgatory thing). (i.e. some kind of creatures out there,
like what took the Sheriff's body). So the wall is to both keep the town in, but keep those things out too.
People seem to be differently affected by time, some coming to town thinking it is a different year, so this supports the purgatory idea. One thing is
certain. The scenes we see that take place outside the town...are way in the past. They are trying to fool us into thinking they are concurrent.
Simple clue to this. The chick just got to town (his wife), yet when he finds the car, it is covered in like an inch of dust (and his wife has a few
more gray hairs, if you look close like I do). So his wife and kid got there ages ago, but were just now released (and they don't know of any time
lapse). So, either time works differently here (like LOST purgatory style), or some kind of suspended animation thing going on. (aliens?) It is M.
Night after all. Hell, maybe the town is actually on an alien planet, and they are just studying them? Lots of cool potential here (as long as it
ISN'T purgatory....too done)....
