The Host Chapter 49 Summary

How It All Goes Down

Interrogated

  • We're not sure what they were doing outside, but Wes and Brandt both got shot by the Seeker. Brandt survived. Wes didn't. Turns out you kind of need the back of your head to live.
  • The remaining humans managed to subdue the Seeker and take her hostage.
  • Melanie and Wanda grapple with wanting to see the Seeker executed and also wanting to save her.
  • Wanda's a little hurt that the Seeker isn't being held in a prison hole like she was. She has a whole room to herself!
  • The Seeker is pretty shrill and annoying in general, but even more so when she gets into an argument with Wanda.
  • Still, Wanda decides to reveal a secret that could save the Seeker's life. What could it be?
