The Death Cure Chapter Eleven

By James Dashner

Chapter Eleven

  • Boom, a fight breaks out.
  • The kids are resisting, and they're doing a pretty good job of it.
  • Unfortunately, a woman who has a launcher is left untouched in the scuffle, so the fight doesn't last too long. Pretty soon they're all being restrained, and Newt and Minho are taken to separate rooms.
  • Janson orders Brenda to come down into the room because she's been insisting that she help with the procedure. Hmm, either that's very good, or that's very bad.
  • When Brenda gets to the room, she whispers to Thomas that he needs to trust her like he did back in the Scorch.
  • Brenda's ordered to sedate Thomas. Ruh roh.
  • Before she sedates him, Brenda tells Thomas the truth about the Scorch: she was acting, and so was Jorge. They both work for WICKED, and they're Munies.
  • Then Brenda gives Thomas a quick little hint at her plan: she's going to do the procedure really quickly, and she asks him if he's ready.
  • In other words, Brenda's gonna do something other than sedate Thomas, and he needs to be ready to spring into action.
