Blurb Description:You live. You love. You die. Now RUN.
Every minute, 108 people die. On October 14th, 2016, from 9:31-9:32 p.m. EDT, 23 of those deaths will be teenagers. Now they are humanity’s last hope for survival. Awakened in a world they barely recognize and hunted by mechanical horrors, these teens search for answers amidst the ruins of civilization. Fate, love, and loyalty face off in this adrenaline -pumping YA adventure.    Team-written by some of today’s most popular YA authors, ReMade is brought to you by Matthew Cody (Super), Andrea Phillips (Revision), Kiersten White (And I Darken), Gwenda Bond (Girl on a Wire), Carrie Harris (Bad Taste in Boys), and E. C. Myers (The Silence of Six).
Even in a group of misfits, Umta sticks out. An adult with more history than any of the youths around her can possibly imagine, she knows about survival – and suffering. Brought back and remade seemingly to take care of the helpless children around her, she plays the mysterious guide and hunter with skill…but despite her knowledge, she is just as vulnerable as all the rest when the caretakers make their long-dreaded return.

This episode written by Matthew Cody.

After finishing book one, I skimmed through the graphic below to check out the rest of the episodes when my eyes stopped at this very one. Umta. And I freaked. Because if there was anyone who had answers, insight or even just a little more knowledge of what was happening, it was the lady who brought everyone down in the space shuttle; the one who is providing them with food; the most experienced of them all. 

While there weren't any answers except for when Umta came from and How She Died, and who she used to be before she was ReMade, Umta still formed the BEST and most action filled episode in this season so far!  
This episode had a sense of foreboding to it, like there was a disaster waiting to happen and we were just the audience in a very well planned movie, and I every minute of it!

And that ENDING. AAAH.

I'm not spoiling anything, but this series is so much better than I thought it would be. It's intense, detailed, told seamlessly from multiple view points and now, became VERY VERY REAL (and not to mention bloody)

If you liked The Maze Runner, you will LOVE this.
