There are potential SPOILERS AHEAD for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. And there are definitely spoilers for the first Maze Runner movie. So turn back now if you don’t want to know anything ahead of time!
At the end of The Maze Runner, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and the surviving Gladers made it out of the Maze before they were whisked away by armed soldiers. With the release date for The Scorch Trials creeping up on us, MTV has debuted the first preview scene from the movie. In it, Thomas finds himself facing Janson (Aiden Gillen). And before Thomas can leave that room, Janson wants to know one thing: whose side is he on?
Game of Thrones fans should recognize Gillen from his role as Lord Petyr Baelish, alias “Littlefinger.” But you’ll have to wait for The Scorch Trials movie to learn more about his character in that film. Or you could read the original Maze Runner novels by James Dashner.
In Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Thomas and the Gladers will once again be tested as they face the perilous landscape known as “The Scorch” as they search for answers about WCKD and their agenda for the survivors. Along the way, the Gladers will make new allies and new enemies, with the potential for betrayal at every turn.
Returning cast members from the first Maze Runner include O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, and Patricia Clarkson. Gillen is one of several new cast members in The Scorch Trials, with Rosa Salazar, Jacob Lofland, Giancarlo Esposito, Barry Pepper, and Lili Taylor also co-starring in the film.
Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials will open in theaters on September 18, 2015.
