AVClub: In every episode, Wayward Pines has been deepening the mystery, offering tantalizing hints of how this place came to be. The first four episodes steadily expanded the mythos of the odd town, revealing bits and pieces of a larger whole, though to what purpose was left unclear. I had assumed the entire show would be the slow unraveling of this mystery, as piece after piece of the puzzle gradually came together, until the final episode revealed just what we’d been looking at all along. I was wrong. And I’ve never been so happy to be utterly mistaken, because “The Truth” is one of the boldest, most unexpected episodes of television I’ve seen this year.
