The Host Chapter 56 Summary

How It All Goes Down

Welded

  • This whole chapter is one big argument. Here are the main points.
  • Wanda wants to be removed from Melanie.
  • Jared kind of wants Melanie back, too.
  • Ian wants Wanda to stay.
  • Even Melanie has grown accustomed to having Wanda around. She wants her own body back, sure, but she doesn't want Wanda to die.
  • The only way to solve this dilemma is with a life-or-death match of Rock, Paper, Scissors.
  • Kidding. Jeb comes in and decides to hold another tribunal. Not as exciting as Rock, Paper, Scissor, but it'll do.
