Some of them were stuck there for 2 years but Thomas lead the group out in 2 weeks after there little “Prison Break” that got them out of the Maze. They Figured out why there were there it was because they were part of the group that were immune to the flare. The Flare is a dangerous virus that slowly eats your brain. They hated Wicked and then they were captured by an unknown so called ally who hated WICKED, but Thomas knew something was up.He and his friend Minho found out they were WICKED and doing tests on teenagers like Thomas. So, then he escaped into the Scorch where all the infected Cracks were. But when they were safe from WICKED and the infected Teresa told Wicked where they were and captured Thomas and his friends. After that Rat man who was like a acting manager explained what Thomas was. He was immune to the Flare along with others and that they are very close to a cure. But Thomas couldn't trust them. So he decided to rebel against them with his friends. But he knew going out there would be dangerous because of the infected people who hate people like Thomas and the flare being on the loose and that the fact Newt can get the Flare easily. Thomas’s goal was to destroy and watch WICKED burn to the ground. After their other little “Prison Break” they found out they have mini chips in there heads that could control them, so Thomas and his friends go out to a ex-WICKED employee and ask if they could take the chip out. But he was a little late and WICKED were in control of Thomas. So Minho knocked him out and Hans the Ex-employee took out the chip off Thomas and Minho.
When they got back to the plane they found a note that said:
“They got in somehow. They’re taking me to live with the other Cranks. Its for the best. Thanks for being my friends. Goodbye."
Thomas knew he had to save him. After all the sacrifices he had made for him. He asked everyone if they had any ideas. Jorge knew Newt was at a Crank Place and that all cities have a Crank Place. He goes and finds Newt going mad trying to break him out, but the problem is Thomas found another note saying, “if you see me kill me”. When they were escaping Newt was starting to turn into a crack because he’s not an immune. When he was turning, he told Thomas to shoot him and kill him. Thomas couldn't do it; he was his best friend he didn't want to give up on him. Newt begged him and didn't want to become one of them. So Thomas pulled the trigger and killed him. Thomas was going to do something to avenge. This is book is honestly amazing. You must read it. Its got this special hook to it and you just don’t want to stop reading. Like a T.V show for example something happens and the show ends. You're wondering what will happen next, but sadly you wait a week to see what happens next. The good news is you don't have to wait it's all in there. This book is fantastic astonishing and etc. I suggest you read this series.
