The Death Cure Chapter Thirty-Six

By James Dashner

Chapter Thirty-Six

  • As they walk through Crank Palace, all of the horrors of the Flare are evident. The place is an absolute mess.
  • One guard explains how it was a huge mistake to allow glass in the Palace, as that's a source of weaponry.
  • Apparently, the government thought it was a good idea to get everyone who is slowly going insane to be holed up in one area. But as we can see, this was a terrible idea.
  • The guards figure that Newt will probably be in the Central Zone, where most Cranks chillax.
  • While they're waiting for the guards to scope out the Central Zone, a couple runs outside to greet the gang. They're Cranks, too, but they don't seem like they're too bad yet.
  • The couple doesn't know where Newt is.
  • The guards finally come back looking pretty upset. They found Newt, but Newt told the guards to tell the gang to get lost.
  • Yeah, Newt's definitely not so happy about his friends coming back to save him.
