The last time we saw Thomas and his team in The Maze Runner, they were being rescued from the clutches of WCKD. The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials picks up shortly after this heartening scene.
However, much like leadership, not everything is as it seems.
The Scorch Trials didn’t miss a beat in continuing the saga of Thomas as he fights to free his friends from the tyranny they’re facing. The movie also continues to provide a wealth of leadership lessons.
