Chapter Summaries & Analyses
Night falls, and the train slows as it nears the chain-link fence marking the city’s boundary. Tris, Tobias, and Caleb jump from the train and see Christina and Uriah. Tori gets their attention with a flashlight and tells them they have a 10-minute walk to Johana and the trucks. She leads the way, walking quickly and eager to escape the city. Gunshots go off, and Tris grabs her gun and runs to Tori’s flashlight, which has fallen to the ground. She picks it up and sees someone shot Tori in the chest and stomach. A factionless woman approaches, and Tris shoots her. Tris runs toward headlights. Christina jumps out of a rusty red truck, and Tris tells her Tori is dead. The girls get in the truck, and Johana drives to find the others. They pull up to another truck and see Tobias, Cara, Caleb, and Peter.
The two trucks drive toward another city. The buildings are smaller than those of Chicago but are just as numerous. The group approaches the outer limits of the Dauntless patrols, and Johana says Abnegation gives anyone who goes this far a memory serum so that they forget the experience.
