"The doctor grabbed Luna by her hair. She screamed, tried to fight, but he got the nozzle in of her face and mashed some kind of trigger."
(Ch. 28, pg. 121)
Progress report #3: Theme by Kelsey O'Neill
Theme Development #2
"Make sure he didn't take anything out while he had it, and we'll go back to the hotel." Wise said.
A major theme of The Games is good vs evil. As the story goes on Jack and Tavia have to find out who kidnapped the girls. Jack and Tavia found out where the girls were being held, but they weren't there. Eventually, Jack and Tavia got a letter from the men who took the girls and they had to meet them in order to get the girls back. They came up with a plan to fool the men and not pay the full amount of money.
Theme Development #3
"...If you do everything right, the girls will go to you, and our buisness is done. SImple, agreed?" A text sent from one of the kidnappers.
(Ch. 40, Pg. 158)
Luna kept telling Dr. Castro to untie her but he wouldn't. He kidnapped her and he was using her as a test subject. Dr. Castro tricked Luna into coming with him then he drugged her so she wasn't sure where she was when she woke up. For the theme Dr. Castro is the evil part of the good vs. evil and Luna was the innocent and good part. Luna was trapped and he wasn't letting her go because he did not like who she was with in a relationship.
"As the opening ceremonies near, with the world watching in horror, Jack must sprint to the finish line to defuse a threat that could decimate Rio..." Stated on the inside cover.
While Jack and Tavia and the girl's parents were going through this huge crowd "pickpockets" took Mrs. Wise's purse. However, Mrs. Wise wasn't sure who took her purse, but Tavia told her who took her purse. It was chaos because there were so many people in this one area of the town and they had to try and catch the person that took her purse. The "pickpockets" were the evil of the good vs evil.
(Ch.37, pg. 149)
The evil of the evil vs good were the men who kidnapped the 2 girls in order to get money from the Wise's. Jack, Tavia, and Mr. Wise came up with a plan to not give them all the money and just put newspaper and stuff to make it look like he gave them all the money. However in the transfer of the girls and the money, the kidnappers took Mr. Wise as a hostage and Jack and Tavia had no idea why they took him.
My prediction of what might happen in the end is that Jack and Tavia are going to end up saving the city and the olympics because that was the main reason why Jack was called to go to Rio. Jack was called to help keep the world FIFA championship safe and the Olympics so they would run very smoothly without any problems.
