Melanie Stryder Timeline & Summary
Melanie's body is inhabited by Wanderer, an alien from another planet, but Melanie's consciousness isn't dead. She speaks to Wanderer, letting her existence be known. In a flashback, we learn that Melanie tried to kill herself to avoid getting snatched by the aliens, but it didn't work out as planned. Since she shares a body with Wanderer, just see Wanda's timeline up until the point that Wanda gets removed from Melanie's body in the last chapter. Melanie, back in full control of her own body, assists Jared and Jamie in snatching a new body for Wanda. Things have come full circle.
