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!
The title of this chapter makes us a little nervous at what Wanda is going to find... and with good reason.
As she approaches Doc's room, she starts smelling weird smells and hearing strange sounds.
She discovers that Jamie and Jared brought back a person who had been taken by one of Wanda's species. They decided to try and take the person back, by force.
Wanda walks in and sees a soul torn in pieces, blood splattered all over the place: "Shimmering segments of silver stretched in twisted, tortured pieces across the table." (40.31) Ew. Not only that, the alien they removed was just a baby.
Horrified, Wanda screams and faints.
When she wakes up, she just wants to be alone, away from the humans who just slaughtered one of her kin.
