The Death Cure - The Ending (SPOILERS!!!) Showing of
Oct 20, So symbolic to Thomas and Teresa's relationship. I hate the ending without Teresa. But I love Brenda. The thing is that, as a reader, you get to see the relationship between Thomas and Teresa, and you start wanting it to develop into something. Dylan O'Brien Opens Up About Thomas & Teresa's Complicated perspectives,” Dylan O'Brien shared about the relationship in a new.
And she sacrificed, yes, sacrificed, the trust and relationship she had with Thomas for that purpose.
The Case For Teresa Agnes
The thing is, she never wanted to hurt Thomas or kill Thomas. Her thought was that, if having Thomas truly believe he was betrayed was going to help save the world, she was doing the right thing. Yes, she was sadly misguided probably by her own belief in what she wrote on her arm. Thomas understood after all, but this is the first time my heart goes out to her, because she knew what she was risking when she hit him and forced him into that chamber.
She was risking a loving relationship with her best friend. Still, Thomas is thinking about Teresa, even while being with Brenda. Thomas is a confused teenage boy, admit it. Maybe not in a romantic way, but he knew the connection between them was still strong. But now with Brenda there, he has found a connection with someone else, someone who, although quite a bit too forward for my liking, he is attracted to.
With Teresa having betrayed his trust, Thomas was able to transfer it to someone else, while Teresa had to deal with her consequences. And I have to say that Teresa is a much stronger person than many characters in these books. Teresa never betrayed Thomas after the Scorch Trials and probably never did before then eitheryet Thomas always had that doubt about her another reason I wish Thomas had gotten the swipe removed, especially when he at one point he communicated to Teresa how he wished he could remember how they were before.
But after that, her thoughts were about Thomas, finding Thomas, helping Thomas, saving Thomas. She said she would do whatever she could to convince to earn his trust again — well, she said to make up for her mistakes, but honestly, I believe she ultimately wanted his complete trust back. Unfortunately, and in an unbelievably heartbreaking conclusion, it would lead to her sacrificing herself for him, not once, but twice — the second time being the fatal blow. What kills me even more is that not everyone in the story knows or understands how much she did, and even the mourning for her just seemed so thoughtless.
I mean, maybe Thomas never really liked Teresa like a girlfriend anyway.
Maybe she was always just a friend to him, but the fact is he knew how she felt about him and in the end, when not even a whole day had passed, he accepted Brenda completely. I actually cared about this person, because her personality is so realistic in many ways.
She admits to having made mistakes and accepts the consequences of her actions, even that of losing her closest and probably only true friend being that they grew up together and yet she tries with all her power to make up for it. Let Brenda have Thomas. Like Brenda more than Teresa if you wish.
But try not to hate Teresa. How can you hate someone who only thought she was doing the right thing for mankind, with her best friend at that, and knowing that she saved his life by giving up her own?
