Those that have read the books know that each one of the new characters has a surprising twist in store for them during the movie. Aris actually turns out to be a traitor. The introduction of females and adults provide for an interesting variable in the equation. In the first movie only one adult was seen and only two females were mentioned. Aidan Gillen who is a star of Game of Thrones is set to be head villain. His role is very small in this film though. Gillen is known as the rat man and only appears to inform the Gladers of WICKED`s intent.

The kids are immune to a virus known as the flare which causes people to turn into monsters. Also WICKED is testing their ability to adapt to circumstances. They control everything the kids do. As far as the girls go they belong to another group of survivors called group B. Thomas`s longtime friend Theresa is said to be their leader. Brenda on the other hand is the leader of a resistance group. With the help of Thomas they will find a cure to the Flare and stop WICKED once and for all. When you put all of this together you have the recipe for Success. Scorch Trials will be a box office thriller.
