A mother drops off her son, with scientist Ava Paige and troops of an organization called WCKD.

Thomas and other abandoned children are placed in a walled maze in a glade as part of its scientific testing. Years shortly after being rescued from the Maze and the remaining Gladers – Teresa, Minho and Winston – are taken to a facility run by Mr. Janson, he says the facility is a safe haven, protecting them from WCKD, the Flare virus and the "Cranks", provides them supplies. Thomas investigates. With help from Aris, the first maze survivor to arrive in the facility, Thomas discovers that WCKD's leader, Ava, is still alive and that Mr. Janson is working for WCKD, when they discuss experiments on the Immunes and that Janson has yet to find the Right Arm, a resistance group located in the mountains; the group, including Aris, escapes the facility to the deserted outside world – the Scorch. Janson orders WCKD troops to track them down; the group arrive at an abandoned shopping mall, where they encounter the Cranks, humans zombified by the Flare virus. Winston gets infected by one of them; when morning comes, they find the city in the WCKD still searching for them.

Winston's infection becomes worse, forcing the others to leave him to die by suicide to prevent his transformation. While crossing the desert, Thomas wakes to discover a distant civilization. During a thunderstorm, Minho survives, they take shelter in an abandoned facility, only to find out it is filled with chained Cranks. The group meets Brenda and Jorge, who leads a dangerous band of survivors and have used the Cranks as guard dogs. Brenda and Jorge agree to take them to the Right Arm. Moments WCKD, led by Janson, storms the place, only for the facility to be destroyed by Jorge's explosives. Thomas and Brenda are left behind; as Thomas and Brenda escape the Cranks, Brenda is infected. Thomas experiences a flashback of when he and Teresa were working for WCKD, in which Thomas tries to warn Teresa of WCKD's plans, only for the two to be separated by WCKD's troops; as Thomas and Brenda reunite with the rest of the group, Jorge interrogates Marcus, a survivor who secretly works for WCKD, into revealing the whereabouts of the Right Arm.

The group arrive at the Right Arm's outpost relief camps, where other immune survivors are present. Vince, who leads the Right Arm, greets them; as Brenda's infection gets worse, Vince threatens to shoot her, only to be stopped by Mary Cooper, a former WCKD scientist who reveals that Thomas was their informant, which helped the Right Arm in taking down WCKD's illegal major operations since. As Mary halts Brenda's infection using an enzyme cure, Mary explains that the enzyme can only be harvested from an Immune's body, not manufactured, that arguments over the methods of manufacturing the cure with Ava led to Mary's departure from WCKD; that evening, Teresa tells WCKD of her location, believing that WCKD's motivations are good, leading to an ambush by WCKD, where Ava and Janson arrive and confront the Right Arm. Janson shoots Mary dead, while WCKD troops capture survivors including Minho. After Thomas and the Right Arm fend the WCKD troops off, Ava and Teresa retreat with their captured survivors.

With only a fraction of survivors left at the site, Thomas plans an infiltration into WCKD. On October 13, 2013 a year before The Maze Runner's release, it was reported that Fox had started work on The Scorch Trials, it was revealed that T. S. Nowlin – who had worked on the F

II Corps (United Kingdom)

The II Corps was an army corps of the British Army formed in both the First World War and the Second World War. There had been a short-lived II Corps during the Waterloo Campaign. Assembling an army in the Southern Netherlands to fight Napoleon’s resurgent forces in the spring of 1815, the Duke of Wellington formed it into army corps, deliberately mixing units from the Anglo-Hanoverian and German contingents so that the weaker elements would be stiffened by more experienced or reliable troops; as he put it: ‘It was necessary to organize these troops in brigades and corps d’armee with those better disciplined and more accustomed to war’. He placed II Corps under the command of Lord Hill. However, Wellington did not use the corps as tactical entities, continued his accustomed practice of issuing orders directly to divisional and lower commanders; when he drew up his army on the ridge at Waterloo, elements of the various corps were mixed up, although he gave Hill command of the left wing, this included elements of I Corps.

Subsequent to the battle, the corps structure was re-established for the advance into France, Wellington issued orders through Hill and the other corps commanders. GOC: Lieut-Gen Lord Hill 2nd Division 4th Division 1st Division Netherlands Indian Contingent After the Waterloo campaign the army corps structure disappeared from the British Army for a century, except for ad hoc corps assembled during annual manoeuvres. In 1876 a mobilization scheme for eight army corps was published, with'Second Corps' based at Aldershot and composed of regular and militia troops. In 1880 its organization was: 1st Division 1st Brigade 2nd Bn. 19th Foot, 41st Foot, 45th Foot 2nd Brigade 75th Foot, 96th Foot, 109th Foot Divisional Troops 2nd Bn. 18th Foot, Berkshire Yeomanry, 17th Comp. Royal Engineers Artillery K/3rd Brigade RA, H/4th Brigade RA, M/2nd Brigade RA 2nd Division 1st Brigade 26th Foot, 53rd Foot, 1st Bn. Rifle Brigade 2nd Brigade 32nd Foot, 108th Foot Divisional Troops 52nd Foot, Oxfordshire Yeomanry Artillery L/2nd Brigade RA, E/1st Brigade RA, K/4th Brigade RA 3rd Division 1st Brigade Ayr and Wigtown Militia, Renfrew Militia, Perth Militia 2nd Brigade Galway Militia, North Cork Militia, South Cork Militia Divisional Troops Armagh Militia, Middlesex Militia Artillery E/5th Brigade RA, P/5th Brigade RA, L/3rd Brigade RA Cavalry Brigade 11th Hussars, 5th Dragoon Guards, 16th Lancers, Hampshire Yeomanry, A Battery A Brigade RHA Corps Artillery C Battery A Brigade RHA, G Battery C Brigade RHA, D Battery C Brigade RHA A/1st Brigade RA, A/6th Brigade RA Corps Engineers 15th Company Royal Engineers and Field Park This scheme had been dropped by 1881.

The Stanhope Memorandum of 1891 laid down the policy that after providing for garrisons and India, the army should be able to mobilise three army corps for home defence, two of regular troops and one of militia, of three divisions each. Only after those commitments, it was hoped, two army corps might be organised for the unlikely eventuality of deployment abroad; the 1901 Army Estimates introduced by St John Brodrick allowed for six army corps based on the six regional commands, of which only I Corps (Aldershot Command and II Corps would be formed of regular troops. However, these arrangements remained theoretical; the Haldane Reforms of 1907 established a six-division British Expeditionary Force for deployment overseas, which did not envisage any intermediate headquarters between GHQ and the infantry divisions. On mobilisation in August 1914 it was decided that the BEF would have two-division army corps like the French armies with which the BEF was to operate but only one corps HQ existed, two were improvised.

II Corps proceeded to France in August 1914 under the command of Sir James Grierson but Grierson died on the train to the front on 17 August. Sir John French wanted Sir Herbert Plumer to succeed Grierson, but the secretary of state for war, Earl Kitchener, instead chose Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien, transferred from Southern Command. Smith-Dorrien caught up with his HQ at Bavai on 21 August. II Corps was first engaged two days at the Battle of Mons and remained on the Western Front throughout the war; the composition of army corps changed frequently. Some representative orders of battle for II Corps are given here. Order of Battle at Mons 23 August 1914:GOC: Lieut-Gen Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien Brigadier-General, General Staff: G. T.
