The Death Cure Chapter Sixty-One

By James Dashner

Chapter Sixty-One

  • Er, Thomas is having second thoughts.
  • Well, Thomas went in the whole time thinking he wouldn't go through with the procedure. But now he really doesn't want to go through with it.
  • Janson doesn't care; he wants Thomas opened up no matter what. No more voluntary stuff here.
  • Before Thomas knows it, he's pricked by a needle and collapses.
  • Dr. Christensen wheels Thomas to the operating room, but on the way, there's a thunderous cracking sound.
  • Christensen freaks out and starts barking orders to have Thomas fully sedated and operated on.
  • A woman sedates Thomas, and has a final hope—he just hopes his procedure works.
