The Death Cure Chapter Twenty

By James Dashner

Chapter Twenty

  • When Thomas wakes up, he's sleeping on a cot. Brenda comes in and tells him they're all okay, just taking snoozes to rest up.
  • The other kids all landed in Denver. The people there have been pretty good at controlling the Flare within the city.
  • Brenda tells Thomas that she met Jorge in Alaska at an immune-convention sort of thing, and he was like an uncle to her. So he swore to be her guardian.
  • Brenda's father had already been killed, and her mother had to let her go once she caught the Flare, so Brenda and Jorge decided to work for WICKED, as many immune people do.
  • After the gang talks for a while, they decide to go after the other Gladers.
  • Yep, they're going to Denver.
  • Oh, and it turns out there's something even more important in Denver, too. Read chapter Twenty-One and you'll find out what it is.
