  • The sky turns grey which has never happened before.
  • They find the Greiver hole. This is where Greivers go during the day.
  • The doors don’t close that night at the Glade.
  • The Greivers come into the Glade.


  • The next night after they found the griever hole the doors didn’t close so the grievers could come into the glade. Everyone went into the homestead. Alby, Minho, Newt and Thomas were talking about the maps and Alby went to the map room and set it on fire but no one knew it was him. Shortly after Alby went to the map room Gally came to the homestead and said everyone is going to die 1 by 1 and started ripping slabs of wood so the grievers could come in and then he got taken by the grievers. After one more night one more person got taken then Thomas purposely got stung by a griever so he could recall his memory. Once he recalled his memory he figured out that the griever hole was the escape and he recalled that you have to compare the maps from section to section to get key words to type into a computer through the griever hole. Then once he does that the next day they make a plan to try to get everyone to come and help them escape.


climax 2
Climax 2
  • 41 people said they wanted to go but a couple didn’t want to go and wanted to stay back. Once they did that it was at night they all went into the maze to go to the griever hole but when they looked around the griever hole they saw twelve of the fifteen grievers surrounding the hole because the beetle bots told them the kids were trying to escape. Once they did that Alby, went running to the Grievers and they all stung him and he died. Then after that more grievers came to corner them and then they went after the griever hole. Thomas, Chuck, and Teresa went into the griever hole while everyone else was fighting. While Teresa was typing in the code a Griever fell down into the griever hole and Thomas fought it off. Then 2 more Grievers took Thomas by the leg but then Teresa typed in the last word of the code and shut down all the grievers. It also shuts down the world that they know of.


  • Man vs. Man- Throughout the book, Gally and Thomas don’t like each other. Thomas makes Gally so mad that he runs out of the maze. Later in the story, Gally tries to kill Thomas by throwing a knife at him. The conflict between Gally and Thomas is man vs. man.
  •  Man vs. Nature- In the maze runner, there are fierce creatures called Greivers. They are part animal part machine. Throughout the entire story, the Gladers stay away from the Greivers. This conflict is an example of Man vs. Nature.
  • Man vs. Self- Thomas fights with what he feels in The Maze Runner. When he sees the doors shutting, he runs into the maze even though everyone is telling him not to. He did what he thought was right. This is an example of man vs. self.


  • Resolution- Once they found the creators people came to rescue the gladers. They took them to a place were they would be safe and secure from the flare that was going on in the real world.


  • The theme of the Maze Runner is no matter what the circumstance is, do what you feel is right and never give up.


  • The mood of Maze Runner is dark and twisted.
