Critic reviews for The Truth
This episode was titled "The Truth," and apparently we learned the truth. But this can't be the truth,. None of this is the truth, and if it is the truth then the truth is dumb.
"The Truth," with its conceit of Wayward Pines' radical time leap/people in suspended animation was completely brilliant and I give it two thumbs way, way up.
This was the week the Truth Hammer came down on Wayward Pines: secrets behind the weird town were revealed, and now you have to decide if you're excited and willing to go along for the rest of this bumpy ride.
This week's episode, simply called "The Truth," delivers exactly what its title suggests - answers. Well, perhaps not all of the answers we were hoping for, but definitely enough to keep our appetites up in face of the upcoming two-week hiatus.
By weaving the narrative through all three perspectives (Theresa, Ethan and Ben), viewers were masterfully taken through the history of Wayward Pines and how it came to be.
