Jonas is frightened when he sees a plane fly over the community.
I believe the whole conflict started whenever Jonas was skipped in the ceremony of twelve and then was given an overwhelming task of being the receiver of memories.
Jonas is receiving memories from the giver but he is not aloud to tell people about them. Jonas is scared and upset about certain memories so hes planning something.
Jonas does not want Gabe to be released so he throws his plan away steals Gabriel and is on his way to escape with him.
They have finally escaped but they have not finished their journey and still have a rough road ahead. of them, it is non stop either snow or rin and they are both tired and sore.
Jonas is very scared and worn out it is cold and very snowy every where he turns, but he has finally reached closure whenever he sees a house with bright lights that seems like they are waiting for him
