According to this interview with James Dashner: People always ask me who Minho was named after. Well, I purposely did that: because the story is set pretty far in the future, I wanted to have at least one or two names that we don’t know, so it’s someone who doesn’t exist yet. The URL where I found the interview with James Dashner now points to a missing ...

The book Grievers are more slug-like and the film ones are more spider-like. This article briefly describes the difference in the Grievers from book to film (emphasis mine): In both the book and the movie, the Grievers are absolutely terrifying. It has to be something to do with their amalgamation of parts and the fact that they only come out at night. In ...

This is explained in the second book (and presumably the second movie) A hint to this is already given in the first trailer of the second movie, The Scorch Trials Update (after having seen The Scorch Trials):

We never find the answer. Even in the book Trilogy, a lot of the questions that are raised are never answered although it does have a satisfying conclusion.

It's a meticulous experiment to produce and recollect Brain Patterns during Extreme Situations The Gladers are already inmune to the Flare since the beginning and what makes them inmune is his brain patterns in the "Killzone" area, specially during extreme stress when The Flare seems to infect the subject faster. “Out of all those people, only a ...

I suggest you read the first book before jumping into the second one. While most of the major plot points of the first book and movie are the same, there are many many things left out. For instance, here are some things from the book that weren't on the movie: (Spoilers for the book) So, while you'll most likely be able to read the second book having watch ...

According to the author, his suggestion in this interview with BookZone is that you should read the original trilogy of books first: Q. Could a newcomer to jump into The Kill Order without reading the other Maze Runner books? Dashner: I highly recommend that people read the trilogy first because so much of the magic in that story is discovering ...

According to this interview with Dashner, Teresa's death seems to have been prompted by his editor's desire to remove the character from future books. We can speculate why, but generally characters are killed off when there's a need to simplify things. Have you ever struggled between what you would like to happen to a character and what you considered ...

The second film is COMPLETELY different to the second book the story line deviates. If you want to understand the second film read the Scorch Trials and the Death cure. I hope that helps a bit more

No plot spoilers for The Maze Runner, please. The Kill Order doesn't really give away any of the plotline of the Maze Runner, but it does reveal a lot of the background behind it. That could be a spoiler as it would take away a lot of the mystery that forms such an important part of the experience of reading The Maze Runner. Unfortuantely, the Maze Runner ...

As the entire Maze and subsequent events are simply a "trial" in which the Gladers are tested and analyzed, the Creators have to try and keep it as real as possible. Thus, if something falls off the cliff, it probably shouldn't be able to turn around and jump out of nothingness back up onto the ledge. I'm sure the Creators have enough control to keep them ...

It appears the straps are used to hold stuff onto them, in the picture you included the guy on the right has what appears to be a knife handle above his left shoulder. You can actually see that clearer in the below picture and the straps also have a bag at the bottom of them. Also in this next picture you can see that the straps have a bag on them covering ...

Why would you let someone bite you? The possibility of it working seems... slim to say the least, my reasoning behind this is that cranks don't act like vampires. Yeah, biting him might let Newt consume some of his blood but it wont directly go to his bloodstream - that's why the injected Brenda with Thomas' blood, not gave it to her to drink or something. ...

I think you missed some part of the movie! In the end, Teresa takes herself and the wounded Thomas to the roof of the building in attempt to get rescued! Thomas barely made it to the aircraft but unfortunately Teresa couldn't (it seemed like she didn't even try because of her guilt) as the building collapsed!

As @DJClayworth said in the comments, these two stories are by different authors so I higlhy doubt they are connected. Both are recovering from an/the apocalypse In The Hunger Games, they are recovering from a massive rebellion against the Capitol, so it's basically a "military apocalypse". In the Maze Runner, the apocalypse was caused by ...

At the end scene of The Death Cure, we do not see Newt’s body so I'm guessing (as Newt died) they left his body there, the main possibilities to what happens to his corpse would either be that it gets burned to ashes, or it gets exploded.

Well, I'm guessing that would be correct as why would A. D. Janson threaten to shoot Thomas so he hands over the cure? If it was temporary then Rat man would try his best to keep Thomas alive so that he could make use of his blood. The whole point of the maze is to give off adrenalin, Thomas would have to be alive to have adrenalin running in his veins.

Ava Paige mentions it after telling Janson to harvest the immune children while Thomas and Aris are eavesdropping.

Maybe the Griever's died from the fall.The second question does not apply because no one has ever thrown a Griever off of The Cliff before.I guess the Creators wouldnt want to kill someone who escaped four Griever's so intelligently.They wanted to find whether the people would escape not kill them.

So, I haven't been able to find anything definitive, so I'll post what evidence I have found and then we can let the speculation begin. I'll try to hide any and all spoilers as well, but without making the whole answer hidden, I will probably say something along the way, so be forewarned if you are still going through. In book 1, near the end we get ...

Minho was named after James Dashner's nieces's husband. His name was Minho. Ki Hong Lee said this in one of his interviews on youtube for evidence.

My argument is two-fold: Climbing on top of the wall would not really help you that much. It would be quite an effort to build such a ladder/scaffold. Then you sit atop some piece of wall, and need to start building bridges to reach the next pieces of wall which lie a little further outward from the center. Building bridges over 5-10 meter gaps is not easy, ...

Hope that helps I have more information abut Gally but if you want me to edit the question then let me know
