It is now 4032, and two distinct factions have arisen in Wayward Pines: the official leadership of Jason Higgins and the First Generation (aided by Megan Fisher) who use any means necessary to maintain Pilcher's original vision, and a group of underground rebels led by Ben Burke working to undermine the iron-hand rule of the First Generation. Over 2000 years ago in Hawaii, Arnold Pope shares a vision with Dr. Theo Yedlin, a successful surgeon, saying Yedlin can "help a thousand people". Yedlin is awakened in Wayward Pines, disoriented, and is told by Higgins and his aide Kerry Campbell that he is part of a government experiment. They ask him to operate on an "important person", which is shown to be Kate Hewson. While the operation is successful, Kate takes her own life after a discussion with Megan. Theo then witnesses the public execution of members of Ben's group, and sees his wife, Rebecca, in the crowd. Ben and Xander turn themselves in to stop further killings, and they are thrown in a truck with Theo. The truck is sent to the other side of the fence, where the group now has to deal with approaching Abbies.
