Wanderer gives in, telling the Seeker all she knows so far: her name is Melanie Stryder, she was looking for her cousin Sharon in Chicago, and there's a mysterious pattern or map she hasn't figured out yet.
Suddenly, a question bursts out of her: "Did they find Sharon?" (3.95). But Wanderer didn't ask this, Melanie did.
Melanie is relieved that Sharon is still safe. She's also relieve that they didn't find him.
When asked who "him" is, Wanderer says, "Jared is safe" (3.115).
Maybe the face Wanderer saw back in Chapter 1 was this one.
