Thomas, Newt, and Frypan are the last of the free “Gladers” immune to the Flare virus that has ravaged the world’s population. They and the Right Arm resistance conduct an operation and retrieve other Immunes from a carriage of a train operated by WCKD, an organization responsible for capturing and experimenting on immune children. They discover that Minho, their remaining Glader friend whom WCKD had captured, was on a different carriage of the train, which is headed to the “Last City,” WCKD’s base of operations. Against the orders of Vince, the leader of the Right Arm, the three leave their camp to rescue Minho, who is being tortured by WCKD in the hope of developing a cure for the virus. Heading for the Last City, the group is attacked by Cranks, humans infected with the Flare. However, they are saved by Jorge and Brenda, who join them.
The group makes it to the wall of the Last City, which protects the city from Cranks. Outside the wall, people are rallying in protest to be let into the city. When WCKD opens fire at the protesters, the group is captured by a crew wearing gas masks and taken to a hideout. A member of the crew is revealed to be Gally, who survived Minho’s attack. Gally takes them to see Lawrence, a rebellion leader for those outside the walls. He helps Thomas, Newt, and Gally enter the Last City through a secret entrance. Gally leads Thomas and Newt through to the city, and spotting Teresa, Gally tells Thomas that he can get them into WCKD headquarters. Newt then confides to Thomas that he is infected. Promising to cure him, Thomas and Gally capture Teresa
