From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Wanda flees to the safest place she knows: the prison hole.
Unfortunately, it's filled with food. Real food, like "chocolate chip cookies. Potato chips. [And] Cheetos." (27.16) We did not italicize that. She italicized Cheetos on her own. We can feel the drool through the pages.
Wanda resists tearing open bags of Cheetos and diving into them face first. Instead, she and Melanie have a long internal dialogue about whether they should try to escape or not.
They're interrupted when Jamie arrives. He says he'll protect Wanda from whatever happens.
It's time for him to prove it fairly quickly, as Jared shows up within a few minutes.
There's some fighting, and Jamie tries to protect Wanda.
Jared is not into that. He throws Jamie aside and then slams Wanda against the wall and into a stack of boxes. Oh yes, there's the Prince Charming we missed.
Jamie honors his word, however, when he stands up and punches Jared in the face. Shpla-dow!
Leaving Jared's nose a bloody mess, Jamie runs away. Jared follows. Wanda, tired from getting beat up yet again, falls asleep face-first in a bag of rice. Don't let the rice mites bite!
