Warning: spoilers ahead! Watch the movie, or not, that’s up to you.
Well, first we need to understand the movie. The Maze Runner: The Death Cure is a movie based on James Dashner’s novels. It wraps up the storyline of the main characters.
In the beginning, Thomas and Newt, the main characters, attempt to rescue their friend Minho from WCKD, or WICKED, where he is being experimented on along with other teenaged Immunes, who are immune to a virus in which it turns humans into zombies called Cranks.
Minho is only WCKD’s prisoner because Theresa, WCKD’s evil scientist doctor, betrayed Thomas and their friends by telling WCKD’s leader, Ava Page, and head of the security, Janson, about their location after they escaped.
As a result, Thomas, Newt, Frypan, Jorge, and Brenda leave Vince and the resistance group, the Right Arm, to infiltrate the last standing city and save Minho. Minho is saved along with other Immunes and they were taken to a safe haven, where the Flare virus and WCKD can’t get to them.
If you watched the movie, at the end, Thomas holds the vial of the cure in his hand. He looks towards the ship that took him to the island. Then, the movie stops.
What does this mean? Well, the ship that took him to the island needed two to three days of repair in order to get there. The vial is a symbol meaning that Thomas went through everything to gain his freedom and to build a new life.
According to the Screen Rant website, this is “Fox’s attempt to cash in on the young-adult craze that swept the entertainment industry for a brief period, building off the blockbusters like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games.” They are trying to make money off of young adults who are put in crazy situations.
