In the TV mystery/thriller/science fiction series Wayward Pines (based on the Trilogy), can anyone explain why Agent Ethan Burke's wife Theresa's car was kept and if so, why it looked like it did?
In episode 3, While attempting escape in the "Fine International Foods" delivery truck, Ethan finds his wife Theresa's car in a garage including personal effects. However, why would the group running Wayward Pines have any incentive to keep the vehicle. Too, given the reveal in episode 5
That the car has been sitting there for 2000 years
how in any way could it look at good as it did?
Even in an inert atmosphere (the garage looked like it may have been airlock sealed), the tires would still have rotted away. Yet, the tires looked like they still had air, the interior was not decomposed, etc. Even the personal effects pictures would have faded out after just 50 years or so, let alone 2000. In fact, the entire car would have probably been mostly gone after such a time.
Does the book offer any other explanation of why those vehicles were kept and why they would be in such relatively good condition? Some looked practically drive ready.
