We’ve Made it to the Final Chapter: Divergent Chapter 39

October 9, 2014 by


OMG WILL TOBIAS SHOOT TRIS THUS ENDING THEIR LOVE STORY AND THIS SERIES?!?! Chapter 39 The shot doesn’t come. He stares at me with the same ferocity but doesn’t move. Why doesn’t he shoot me? His heart pounds against my palm, and my own heart lifts. He is Divergent. He can fight this simulation. Any simulation. […]

Divergent Ex Machina: Divergent Chapter 38

October 3, 2014 by


Chapter 39 After everybody died, Tris has met up with Tobias in the computer room, who is the only person actually in the room guarding the technology carrying out the villains’ evil plans for some reason. Not that this makes things easier. Just stupider. [Ariel says: I bet all the guards were programmed to jump […]

Return to Dauntless Headquarters: Divergent Chapter 37

October 2, 2014 by


As we near the end of the first Divergent, Tris, her father, brother and Marcus all head towards Dauntless headquarters to foil Jeanine’s plans rather than doing the reasonable thing and heading to Amity for safety and banjo playing. Also I made this important discovery. 1) Kate Winslet was in this? WTF. [Matthew says: It was probably […]

Everything Is Super Depressing Now: Divergent Chapter 36

September 26, 2014 by


Chapter 36 Tris’s mom showed up to save Tris after previously being in a grand total of like seventeen pages of the entire book and was immediately killed off, which would be sort of like if they killed off John C. Reilly’s comic relief minor character in Guardians of the Galaxy and playing it like […]

Tris is Divergent: Divergent Chapter 35

September 25, 2014 by


Previously, Tris met the evil villain who revealed her rather lacklustre plan to mind control everyone…for some reason. I mean, she claims she wants to kill everyone from Abnegation so she can be in charge of the government, but if your ultimate plan is to keep everyone within their same factions/control their mind couldn’t she […]

Something Something Evil Plan: Divergent Chapter 34

September 19, 2014 by


Previously, people who can be described with multiple adjectives were captured by people who are only one adjective, because their many adjectives were ruining their plan to kill off more people who are only one different adjective. [Ariel says: I hate to be a downer, but technically Tris and Four can be narrowed down to […]

Tris and Four Rebel, Get Captured Immediately: Divergent Chapter 33

September 18, 2014 by


Last week, Tris passed Dauntless initiation and then used a handy list to reveal evil plots that are evil: One: Colored serum contains transmitters. Two: Transmitters connect the mind to a simulation program. Three: Erudite developed the serum. Four: Eric and Max are working with the Erudite. […] But I do know how Erudite will […]

Tris Passes Dauntless Testing: Divergent Chapters 31 and 32

September 12, 2014 by


I went to a Spoon concert this week! Well, you’re all caught up on my life. Chapter 31 Tris comes out of the test-hallucination and Eric tells her that she’s completed her final evaluation, and then does something totally not suspicious: “This [syringe] will inject you with a tracking device that will be activated only […]

More Metaphors Explained: Divergent Chapters 29 & 30

September 11, 2014 by


When we last left off, Tris had just met the evil villain who is evil for some reason. She’s super annoying. Chapter 29 But now it’s time to take a break from worrying about villains to worry about Dauntless initiation! Oh the stress of it all. In case you had any doubts, Dauntless initiation is […]

Tris Meets The Evil Villain Who Is Evil: Divergent Chapter 28

September 5, 2014 by


Having recently tried and failed to meet Hannah Hart at a book signing because I completely forgot about things like “capacity” and “waiting in line”, today I’m going to try to meet XKCD‘s Randall Monroe at a book signing, and see if I ever learn from my mistakes. [Ariel says: Omg you’re such a Pamela.]  […]
