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!
As Wanderer drives toward Chicago (the Seeker has already gone ahead to meet her there), Melanie shows her a bunch of memories about how awesome and sexy Jared is and how much she loves her brother, Jamie. They'd all totally die for each other.
Wanderer feels the bond between them. She cries and drives (good thing she's not in traffic) and decides that she could never give them up to the Seeker.
