The Host Chapter 58 Summary

How It All Goes Down


  • The mysterious stranger in the tunnel turns out to be Jared. He tells Wanda that he's grown to love her, but he doesn't try real hard to stop her from killing herself or anything.
  • She goes to Doc and he reluctantly agrees to remove Wanda from Melanie's body.
  • He performs the procedure and everything goes dark...
  • The last few pages of this chapter are blank, as though something is going on, we're just not aware of it because Wanda is unconscious, dying. Could her story be finished?
