Tracy Froese is Sarah Barlow on Wayward Pines

Each week since its premiere, “Wayward Pines” has made a digital companion series. After episode five, Zap2it wondered if perhaps the story of Eric and Sarah Barlow would converge with the television series. Thursday (June 25) viewers got their answer.

As David Pincher (Toby Jones) gave Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) a tour of the mountain facility where workers keep Wayward Pines running and conduct research on the world in the 41st century, they came upon a young woman named Sarah Barlow.

The companion series has revealed that Sarah (Tracy Froese), a journalist, went missing, leaving only a video message goodbye for her husband Eric (Giacomo Baessato). He begins searching for her and eventually ends up at an Idaho-based construction project that looks like the mountain facility in its first construction phase.

Oh, and Sarah is pregnant. Which probably means the “Dr. Anderson” she’s been seeing is none other than Nurse Pam (Melissa Leo).

Finally, independently (to Eric, at least) of Sarah’s disappearance, “Pilcher Recruiting” contacted the rocket scientist about an engineering job. Does that mean Eric ends up in one of the cryogenic pods?

Watch Eric and Sarah’s story unfold on FOX’s website.
