**CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS**
I've just finished the Scorch Trials, and I thought it was a great follow-up to the Maze Runner. I can't wait for the third.
But did anyone else really loathe Theresa after she "betrayed" Thomas? I feel like even if Theresa was doing it for the reasons she said, I'll never feel the same way about her again. Her betrayal truly made me dislike her, and throughout the rest of the book I couldn't help thinking "Shut up!" or "Just go away!" in my brain whenever she spoke. It also angered me how Thomas -- though he doesn't fully trust her yet -- still has some respect for her.
Assuming that Theresa didn't really mean what she did, and she and Thomas end up together at the end of this trilogy, would you ever completely forgive her? Could you just dismiss this?
I'm not really the forgive and forget type, so maybe it's just me. But did anyone else feel this way? Do you think it was a smart move by Dashner to do this (ASSUMING that Thomas and Theresa start a relationship/ remain friends) or do you feel that this just made you dislike Theresa no matter what? Just curious to hear others' opinions!
