I have Questions about Maze Runner (pts 1 & 2)

So last week I saw The Maze Runner. I skipped it when it first came out, because it was another one of those dystopian YA books I hadn't read starring some guy from the CW or something that I couldn't identify. But now I've seen it! And it was fine, but it started to get really good right at the end, which was handy for me, because I only had to wait a week to see Scorch Trials.

I've done that now, too. And I have some questions I'm hoping someone can help me with. (And no, the questions don't include "Why is Aiden Gillen even sexier as a sociopath in 2015 than he was as a mere narcissist in 1999?" I'm content to leave that as one of life's delightful little mysteries.)

Now, I realize the questions can be answered one of three ways:

1) This will all be explained in the third book/movie! Hang in there, kid!

2) There is absolutely no explanation. These books were probably written in five weeks to get in on the Hunger Games wave, and none of it really fits together. You only saw it for Dylan O'Brien anyway, so don't get greedy now.


If it's #2, so be it. If it's #3, great! Someone smarter than me, please catch me up in the comments! If it's #1, please be aware, I'm not looking for spoilers! You can just tell me, "It's #1," and I'll be happy, knowing that eventually everything's going to come together. I just hate waiting for things to come together if they're never going to. I want to know whether or not to abandon hope, is what I'm saying.
