Reed Bentley is a student at Wayward Pines Academy.

History Edit

Reed was in a car crash and woke up in Wayward Pines Hospital. He enrolled in Wayward Pines Academy, and he was called to Room 1 for orientation. He sat in a chair numbered 109, and waited with classmate Carrie Barnes until Ben Burke arrived. The boy introduced himself and asked what did the number on his chair meant, but Reed couldn't give him an answer, beyond that he had 109 on his chair.

When Mrs. Fisher walked in the room, she dimmed the lights, and show the kids a slideshow. She explained that several students before them had completed orientation, and joined the First Generation. When Fisher showed them a picture with something on it, saying that it was their first evidence of its existence, Carrie asked what was that creature. The teacher asked them to take a guess, and when Reed suggested that the creature could be Bigfoot, Fisher told him that Bigfoot traveled alone, while these creatures didn't. She told them that those were in fact abbies, carnivores that lurked outside the fence. During lunch, Amy Breslow sat with the students and tried to make them feel better about the abbies, and promised that things would make sense after they finished their lesson.

Back at orientation, Mrs. Fisher gave Reed and the other students ancient coins, and they discovered that they were American quarters, dating from yhe year 2095. She asked the kids about the last thing they remembered before getting to Wayward Pines, and asked them how much they thought they had been out. She revealed that they were frozen for 2000 years, and that thanks to David Pilcher, they had survived the human extinction. They had been chosen to ensure the survival of the human race.

Mrs. Fisher turned the lights on and asked them not to tell about the things they had learned to their parents, since when a kid did, his parents decided to commit suicide. She explained that adults had lived way too long in the old world, and that they couldn't take the true.

The teacher told them that they were the future, and that Wayward Pines needed them to work together, since they were now part of the First Generation. She took a picture of them, and having finished the class, she took them to a continuous room, where all the members of the First Generation were waiting for them. Mrs. Fisher gave them candles, Amy shared her fire with them to light them and the rest of the kids hit their palms against the tables to welcome them to the First Generation.[1]

It is unknown if Reed was killed during the Abbie attack or if he made it to safety in another bunker with other members of the First Generation.
