Because of his action during the night he became a runner. The next Rising action is when the creators stoped sending up supplies for the Gladers. The entire maze then started to change.

Because of his action during the night he became a runner. The next Rising action is when the creators stoped sending up supplies for the Gladers. The entire maze then started to change. The sun is gone and there is now no more light. The worst part is now every night the Greivers will capture and kille one of the Gladers.
The last Rising action is when Thomas Purposely gets stung by a Greiver, so he can go through the changing. The reason he does this is to find out how to escape the maze, and his plan was successful
The Falling action is when Thomas leads the Gladers to their freedom. They needed to fight their way past the Greivers and jump off a cliff to a hallway that led to a computer. Then they would have to input a code into the computer and it would shut down the Greivers and allow them to escape the maze.
The Resoloution happen after the Gladers escaped. They went down a long and dark tunnel until they came face to face with WICKED the people who created the maze. Then WICKED used mind control to make on of the Gladers kill Thomas best Friend, Chuck.
The main antagonist is WICKED. Wicked stands for World In Catastrophe: Killzone Experiment Department. The world is currently in a Catastrophe, after being hit with sun flares and there's a disease called the flare that makes you crazy. WICKED captured the people who were immune to the flare and tested there brain patterns to find a cure. The way they test them is by putting them in a maze and they have to escape. The reason that WICKED is bad is because they take people, such as baby from from its mother and prepare them for the maze. Many of the participants die during these tests because WICKED puts in things called grievers that live in the maze and attack the test subjects when they enter it. WICKED does all of this because they think that they can find a cure for flare.
