Always answer the phone if it rings. It's the cardinal rule of Wayward Pines that all citizens are obligated to obey on this week's penultimate episode of the Fox thriller.

In the exclusive clip below, Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) flexes his power as sheriff and calls a reckoning in the center of town to gather all residents and finally reveal the truth behind the town. But when he holds a knife to the throat of his former partner Kate Hewson (Carla Gugino), he quickly discovers the angry crowd has a greater thirst for blood than they do for facts.
