Production was halted after star Dylan O'Brien was seriously injured on set last year. Thankfully, O'Brien seems to have made a full recovery and can begin filming again. The Maze Runner author James Dashner posted a group pic of the cast hanging out on Monday (March 6), but his caption just destroyed fans: "Please, Tommy, please.... pass the salt. Good to see these guys back together!!! #DeathCure."
The majority of comments on Dashner's Insta is of fans freaking out about having to relive one of the saddest, most gut-wrenching moments in The Death Cure. If you haven't read the book, turn away now! Dashner poked fun at Newt's (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) final line, when he begged Thomas (O'Brien) to kill him — and Thomas does:
"KILL ME!" And then Newt's eyes cleared, as if he'd gained one last trembling gasp of sanity, and his voice softened. "Please, Tommy. Please." With his heart falling into a black abyss, Thomas pulled the trigger."
Thanks a lot, James. Now I have to mourn Newt all over again — and prep myself to watch Brodie-Sangster die onscreen again (it was hard enough watching him perish as Jojen Reed on Game of Thrones). Really, thanks a ton.
