Wayward Pines - Episode 2.02 - Blood Harvest - Promo, Interview, Promotional Photos & Press Release *Updated*


ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When did you learn you would be back for one episode and that it would be your last? Why come back at all?

CARLA GUGINO: I had really loved the people I worked with so much on this, and I was really invested in Kate. They had asked if I would come for the entire season, and I love the show and I would have been very open to that, but I’m doing Roadies for Showtime and so I wasn’t able to do anything longer on Wayward Pines. But we all really felt very passionately about Kate and about maintaining the integrity of that world.

You knew you couldn’t return for a full season, but did you have any ideas of your own on how Kate could have died? This was such a bloody exit — you had to slice your own throat.

No, I’m sure [the writers] bounced around other ideas, but we had the sense that she would take her own life. By the time we spoke, that was really the only conversation we had… What I didn’t want was for her to have just disappeared, you know? As we talked about how she would be able to exit the story, what we kept coming up with was this notion that ultimately, all that she was fighting for just seems futile. Her husband had been shot in front of her by the young man who’s running the town. In that moment, she gets to a place where she doesn’t want to be there anymore.

The town has this horrifying ritual of reckonings, where [people are] brought up in front of the town and their throat is slit, so [for Kate], it’s a self-reckoning. And I think the fact that it happens face-to-face with Hope Davis’ character Megan is interesting, because they just have entirely different viewpoints of where they want the world to be and where the world is. It was certainly an intense and bold way to go. [Laughs] But I thought, when they presented me with the material, that it was interesting and made sense for where she’s at emotionally.

I was hoping she would at least get some revenge and take some of the First Generation followers with her on her way out.

I know, I know. [Laughs] You want her to have a moment to fight a bit more! I have to say, as a total side note, that things will have to change at some point soon in regards to being able to do two things simultaneously on television. There’s so much more material. Obviously, you can do any number of movies in a year, but the exclusivity of TV is a tricky thing, and I couldn’t be more excited about Roadies, but it would have been nice to have had a little more time, to have a little longer of a storyline to complete Kate.


Season One’s Shannyn Sossamon, Charlie Tahan and Toby Jones Guest-Star

As Theo fights to make sense of his new life in Wayward Pines, he recognizes his value as the only surgeon in town and uses it as leverage to get answers to the many questions he has about the status of his wife, Rebecca, and the truth about the town from First Generation leader Jason Higgins. CJ Mitchum (Djimon Hounsou), an original resident of Wayward Pines and a historian for the town with extensive knowledge of its complex origins, is the one person who can provide a unique bridge between the current world of Wayward Pines and the previous world that humans inhabited. Meanwhile, Megan Fisher heads up the research being conducted on the Abbies, Theresa (guest star Shannyn Sossamon) frantically searches for her son, Ben (guest star Charlie Tahan), and CJ Mitchum spearheads a vital and potentially deadly project outside the fence in the all-new “Blood Harvest” episode of WAYWARD PINES airing Wednesday, June 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
