The Host Chapter 43 Summary

How It All Goes Down


  • Wanda tries to convince the cave dwellers to let her leave, saying she can get medical supplies from an alien Healer's facility and use them to heal Jamie. They say no.
  • But Jared, desperate to save Jamie, leads Wanda out of the cave that night. They get in his Jeep and drive to Tucson.
  • Problem: in order to be healed, Wanda's going to need an injury. She tells Jared, "You're going to have to hit me" (43.179).
  • Yikes, it's like The Host meets Fight Club all of a sudden.
