The Scorch Trials Chapter 16

By James Dashner

Chapter 16

  • Thomas goes after Winston. Thomas always flocks towards whatever is happening.
  • It's not dark anymore; the boys can see everything, and the giant glob is basically eating away at Winston's head.
  • Winston tries to yank it off, but it won't budge. Luckily, Thomas gives him a hand and they yank it off together.
  • The glob forms into a sphere again, then scurries off into the darkness. Weird.
  • Winston isn't looking too hot, though—he's got burns everywhere and his hair is scorched.
  • Minho and Newt don't waste time: they order everyone to follow them, while a boy named Jack helps Winston. It's time to go outside.
