  • The kids do follow Thomas. Eventually, he stops to rest way ahead of everyone when the sun finally begins to come up.
  • Minho reaches Thomas and is all like, What were you thinking? Why didn't you just tell us what happened before you ran off like an idiot? Now we're all tired and the sun's up!
