She finds her M16 in Evan's barn under a blanket, but Evan casually says that he simply found it near her when he found her. After a few more days, Cassie feels she is fit enough for the journey and Evan, against Cassie's wishes, sets out with her, burning his house down as a distraction to the Others. Zombie and his squad are on their first patrol. They are given special headsets with lenses that can supposedly detect that a human is an Other rather than truly human.
They are attacked, Private Oompa being killed in the process. Zombie and Ringer go out to kill their assailants while Private Poundcake covers them from above with his sniper. While under the cover of a building, Ringer cuts out her implant, and her head lights up green through Zombie's lens. Ringer pieces the evidence together with Zombie and concludes that Camp Haven is not a human training camp, but an "Other death camp".
They find that their assailant is Reznik and kill him. Reznik is holding a piece of equipment with a map with green spots: the implants.
Ringer and Zombie return to the squad and explain to them what they know. Flintstone, who is skeptical, snatches the equipment away and pulls a switch. He drops dead. Zombie is reluctant to leave whilst Nugget is still at Camp Haven and has Ringer shoot him so that his story will look real.
Zombie is then evacuated by a helicopter to Camp Haven.
While on the journey, Cassie and Evan are attacked by a group of juvenile soldiers. Cassie is shocked as she watches Evan take them down at ease, though injuring his thigh and buttocks in the process. Once the soldiers are taken down, Cassie makes Evan confirm that he is the Silencer who shot her, while awkwardly stripping his clothing to heal his wounds. Cassie initially decides to leave him there to bleed to death, but afterwards decides to help him.
After so, they orchestrate a plan to infiltrate the camp where Evan has little involvement. Cassie arrives at the base on a bus.
She is called for processing. Pam meets with her and Cassie knocks her unconscious. While trying to find where Sammy is, Dr. Pam awakens and commits suicide.
Zombie awakes in a hospital bed to see Vosch.
Vosch tells him that he will be put through Wonderland. After Vosch leaves, Zombie escapes and steals an outfit from a dead guard.
They are captured by Vosch. Vosch attempts to kill Nugget by electrocuting him. It is revealed that Evan has planted bombs and hacked into the base's mainframe.
Vosch leaves to Control. Evan appears and kills the soldiers guarding Zombie, Cassie, and Sam. Evan says goodbye before allegedly setting off "eyes", the same bombs Vosch used to destroy Cassie's refugee camp.
The members of Squad 53 arrive and save Zombie, Cassie, and Sam. They ride off as Camp Haven is destroyed. Characters Cassiopeia Marie Sullivan or "Cassie"— the protagonist of the novel.
She is 16 years old, short, and has curly strawberry-blonde hair. In school, she had a crush on Ben Parish, a popular football player.
Her mother died in the 3rd Wave, and her father was killed by soldiers under the command of Commander Vosch in a refugee camp where the Sullivans stayed. Her little brother, Sammy, is taken away in a school bus with other kids to a military training facility, Camp Haven.
When Cassie is shot in the leg by a Silencer, she is rescued by Evan Walker, and the two start a relationship. Cassie soon finds out that Evan is one of the "Others", who saved her after being shot by a Silencer. Evan Walker — a boy from rural Ohio who lived with his large family. His family and girlfriend were all killed during the 3rd Wave. He rescues Cassie after she is shot and takes her into his home, a farm. Evan soon professes his love for Cassie, but she quickly discovers that he is not truly human.
This, again, is an actual Cassie quote: Time for the angrily-storming-out-of-the-room part of the argument, while the guy folds his arms over his manly chest and pouts. Double ugh.
Rant Number 3: The Comparisons to the Sci-fi Classics are Completely Unfounded The days when alien invasion plots could stand solely on the invasion ended right around the time of H. Evan being a human-alien hybrid struggling to reconcile his alien soul with his humanity? Shallow even in comparison to The Host. Is that a joke? They even killed an expendable character named Kenny!
Then, yuck! Triple ugh. Basically, The 5th Wave is, in every way, an embarrassment to science fiction.
