The Maze Runner was an instant hit, and The Scorch Trials, even more, but did one scene foreshadow one of our beloved character's death.

Newt [Group A; Subject 5; The Glue] was one of our favorite characters in the Maze Runner saga, but will he be alive to finish it?

In The Scorch Trials, there was a scene that showed Thomas and Brenda in a party. Before they could enter, they had to drink some kind of drug to enter. Afterward, Thomas and Brenda split up to go find the others.

While Thomas was hallucinating, he saw Winston as a Crank. Now, some of you are probably like, "Oh, well, Thomas was hallucinating, so this could be just another pointless setup.", but no. Winston was dead before this point, so that was most likely a flashback of Winston if they didn't hand him the gun.

After seeing Winston, Thomas turns to see Newt as a Crank. This is a foreshadow.

In The Death Cure (book), on page 248, it quotes: "Newt's face had colored to a deep red and spit flew from his mouth as he yelled. He started taking lumbering steps forward, his hands balled into fists.". This is the part in the book when Newt turns into a Crank.

Now, the title mentioned Newt's death. Well, on page 250 of the Death Cure, it quotes: "'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.". This is the page when Newt dies.

Now, in The Scorch Trials, we saw a foreshadow of Crank-Newt, and in the Death Cure, Newt becomes a Crank. So the evidence proves the fact that Newt will die, because of the foreshadow.
