In “Wayward Pines” penultimate Season 1 episode, “A Reckoning,” things come to a head between those in town who know what’s beyond the fence and those who don’t — and it starts with a confrontation at the sheriff’s station.

In Zap2it’s exclusive first look, three young men from Wayward Pines Academy storm the sheriff’s office to demand Sheriff Burke (Matt Dillon) do his job the right way. “If you break the rules, you have to be reckoned. That’s the sheriff’s duty. … The future of this town in our hands,” threatens Jason (Tom Stevens), “not yours and not your sheriff’s. So you tell him if he doesn’t do what he needs to do, if he doesn’t reckon those traitors, soon someone’s gonna do it for him.”

“I will tell him no such thing,” says Arlene (Siobhan Fallon Hogan). “Now you skedaddle or I’m having the three of you locked up. … Did you hear me? I said get. the hell. out of here.”

Way to go, Arlene — but something tells us this isn’t the last we’ve seen of the young vigilantes. Find out how it all goes down in “Wayward Pines” Thursday, July 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
