Mike's death


Mike is a Glader and Slopper who appeared in the Maze Runner film. He is a minor character in the movie and is not mentioned in the book. Michael Bow, Mike's actor, says he is most likely named after Michaelangelo.

Mike is shown multiple times in the film, but only in the background or is briefly mentioned by another character. Mike is briefly visible onscreen in the back of the group when Alby is taken by Grievers. He is also briefly seen when Ben is banished.

Mike's most notable appearance is when he ventures into the Maze with Thomas and some other Gladers, trying to escape. He is seen picking up his spear when Thomas is giving instructions to those with him. During the escape from the Maze, several Grievers ambush the group. One slams its tail into the ground, rupturing the ground and causing Mike to slip and fall. Another Griever grabs Mike and throws him off the edge, presumably to his death. Mike is the first Glader to die in the escape from the Maze.

In the Death Cure film, the name Michael is engraved on the memorial rock along with the names of others killed in the war against WCKD. It is possible that this is a reference to Mike.
