Wayward Pines Season 2 episode 10 airs tonight, and it?s unclear how the show will end, given its various twists and turns. Executive producer M. Night Shyamalan recently hinted at an ?epic story? for the season finale, and various theories have come up. Is Wayward Pines nothing but a dream? Or will the humans and Abbies end up frozen, to be discovered by year 6035 residents in Season 3?
In a very short video, Shyamalan discussed the ending for Wayward Pines Season 2. The video?s title is ?Moves Like a Bullet,? and Shyamalan explains that Season 2 is an epic story, which ?aims toward something.? ?We?re not gambling at all; we?re moving like a bullet towards this end,? he says. Though the clip doesn?t really give concrete details on the finale, the EP previously said that Season 2 is mainly about the Abbies. Supposedly, the big reveal is that viewers? primitive understanding of what an Abby is from Season 1 is actually different from what it is.
This leads to various theories on how the show will end. It?s speculated that the Season 2 finale will reveal that Wayward Pines is just a dream. It?s a disappointing way to end the season, but considering Shyamalan?s other works with unconventional twists, it?s not impossible. However, such an ending leaves very little room for a possibility of a third season of the show.
Another theory is that both humans and Abbies will end up frozen, which will be a surprise to year 6035 residents. This ending would mean the deaths of the unfrozen humans. It?s likely that the intelligent Abbies will figure out what the cryo pods are for and use some for themselves. Unlike the first theory, this ending leaves more room for a possible Season 3. The third season could take off from the future residents? discovery of the frozen humans and Abbies.
Speaking of Season 3, it?s unclear whether Season 2 episode 10 is the end for the show. FOX has yet to announce if the show will be renewed for Season 3. If it does though, fans can expect it to come back in May 2017.
Wayward Pines Season 2 finale airs tonight at 9 pm on FOX.
