The Scorch Trials Chapter 62

By James Dashner

Chapter 62

  • In a desperate attempt, Thomas jumps forward and tackles the man, causing the pistol to fly away. Thomas then grabs the pistol and points it at the man.
  • Point: Thomas.
  • The man then tells Thomas that his name is David, and that there won't be any more tests. It's all good; Thomas just shouldn't shoot him.
  • David continues, saying they're taking everyone to a safe place with no more set-ups or tests or lies.
  • Yeah, right.
  • The only thing the kids need to do is listen to the next thing they're told, says David.
  • David tells everyone to follow him—and since they really have nothing else they can do, they follow.
