Season 2 of FOX’s “Wayward Pines” has gone deeper into the backstory behind the human aberrations, or “Abbies,” that terrorize the town. In an exclusive clip, makeup effects designer Bill Terezakis reveals the four hour process of prosthetics and makeup that goes into the creation of the Abbies.

Terezakis explains that he is wary of making the Abbies too monstrous: “I think if we were to go any other route, we would lose the humanity of the characters, and that is going to be quite evident and needed in Season 2. We have to be able to identify with them in some degree, and I think Season 2 will be more of an eye opener as to why these characters are more on the human side as opposed to the monster side, and why in fact they became monsters.”

Tonight’s episode, “Sound The Alarm,” will go deeper into the backstory of the Abbies. According to the official synopsis, “Rebecca recalls first meeting Pilcher as an architect and the creation of Wayward Pines is revealed.  Theo is shocked by a secret Rebecca divulges to him; Teresa tells CJ and Adam she wants to live outside the protected walls as Megan experiments on the first female Abbie that has been captured.”

Check out the “How to Make an Abbie” clip below, and catch “Wayward Pines” on Wednesdays at 9:00pm on FOX.
