The Death Cure Chapter Fifty-Three

By James Dashner

Chapter Fifty-Three

  • Thomas is surprised by how calm he is and declares that the Right Arm people can drop him off a few miles away from WICKED and let him hike in. That way it'll look like he made the trek himself in order to return.
  • Vince agrees and also settles on moving the rest of the Gladers and immunes to the Right Arm's headquarters.
  • Thomas learns how to use the device from Charlotte Chiswell. After he plants it, the device will take about an hour to render the weapons useless.
  • Thomas then promises he won't let himself get killed—as long as Brenda doesn't let herself get killed.
