FROM Season 2 Ep 4 is the 14th chapter of science fiction horror television series created by John Griffin. Its premise involves a nightmarish town in middle America that traps everyone who enters where unwilling residents strive to stay alive and search for a way out, but they are plagued by the terrifying nocturnal creatures from the surrounding forest, and secrets hidden in the town itself.

Entitled “This Way Gone”, FROM Season 2 Ep 4 actually shines a faint light on a possible rationale for what is happening to the characters in the town. It all boils down to a voice on the radio in the season 1 finale warning Jim about Tabitha’s digging beneath the house. This also puts into perspective the voices in Sara’s head that prompted her to carry out heinous acts with the best intentions.
Basically, at the barest minimum, FROM Season 2 Ep 4 reveals that the townspeople are being watched by unknown entities. This theory about “others” – remember LOST? – seems to be confirmed by Boyd’s conversation with the deceased Father Khatri – or someone looking like him – admonishing Boyd for sharing what he has discovered with Kenny. Perhaps, this understanding will provide the townspeople with a means of escape as these “others” seem dead set from preventing such information becoming widespread amongst the townspeople.
So maybe the town is a simulated reality? Maybe if not in a scientific way then perhaps in a magical way? At this point, it is not clear though. And if so, maybe Abby was right about the town being a dream and death providing an escape from the simulation? It’s threadbare but at least it’s a hint of a possible answer! Hopefully more to come, please!
… still there’s more …
