Tris and Tobias are tested by Matthew and Nita to verify and study their Divergence. While Tris is shown to be truly Divergent, Tobias' genetic structure indicates that his genes are still 'damaged'.
Tobias is angered by this news and begins to believe that he is a damaged human being. Matthew then brings Tris to the leader of the Bureau, David, to find out the truth about her mother. David gives Tris her mother's journal. Meanwhile, Tobias is secretly asked to join a rebellion, led by Nita, who is also genetically damaged. She tells him that the Bureau is lying when they say genetic damage is the cause of society's problems.
She intends to demonstrate that the genetically pure are flawed as well. Tobias tells Tris about the plan, going against Nita's warning to keep it secret.
Shortly afterwards, Nita and her allies attack the compound, severely injuring Uriah in one of two explosions. Tris saves David from being shot by Nita and stops the attack, and then Nita is placed in prison for her crimes. After the attack, Tris confronts Tobias and temporarily ends their relationship, leaving Tobias to try not to think about the things that he has done.
Tris is then offered a position on the Bureau's council and is told of the events taking place within the city, including the Allegiant's preparations for war with Evelyn and the factionless. David is desperate to stop the violence and maintain his life's work at the expense of destroying the personalities of everyone in the city. He decides to use the memory serum to wipe the memories of the people within the city, allowing the experiment to begin with a clean slate.
Tris learns that the Bureau created the serums that led to the destruction of Abnegation and the enslaving of Dauntless.
Repulsed by the Bureau's actions and David's decision she leaves the Bureau. Tris reconciles with Tobias, they both admit their deep love for each other and finally sleep together.
The next day with her friends, she begins to create a plan to save her city. The group decides to break into the Weapons Lab and use the memory serum to wipe the memories of the Bureau. The Lab is guarded by a fatal dose of the death serum, rendering it a suicide mission. Caleb volunteers for the role, tearfully asking Tris if it will make her forgive him for everything he has done.
Tris says yes. Four, Christina, Peter, and Amar plan to go into the city to inoculate their loved ones against the serum. Christina is able to retrieve doses of the inoculation serum and tells the group to inject themselves with it. Four notices that Peter only pretends to inject himself. Christina gives an extra vial of memory serum to Four, for use against either Marcus his father or Evelyn his mother in the hopes of bringing an end to the conflict in the city. Four decides to confront Evelyn.
Taking Peter and the vial of memory serum, Four meets with his mother and gives her the option of drinking it, which will allow her to end the fighting, be born anew, and become his mother again.
She embraces Four without taking the serum. They meet with Johanna and Marcus to iron out an end to the conflict. On the way out of Erudite headquarters, Peter laments his bad behavior and violent tendencies which he knows will never change, and says he wants to take the memory serum to become a new person. Four gives Peter the serum, erasing his mind for good. At the Bureau, Caleb is ready to sacrifice himself, but he and Tris, who accompanied him, are ambushed by Bureau guards.
Tris pulls her gun on Caleb and decides to carry out the mission herself, knowing that Caleb volunteered out of regret for his former actions rather than out of love for her. She hopes that her resistance to serums will include the death variant. Not knowing if she will survive, Tris tells Caleb that if she does not return, he should tell Four she did not want to leave him.
Tris destroys the entrance to the Lab and is exposed to the death serum, but she survives. David came within the Lab and explains that her collusion with the genetically damaged did not go unnoticed. Before we knew Four as being a character who would never let his fears control him.
In Allegiant, Four's fears have his neck in a leash and tug him in any which direction and he willing goes without even putting up a fight. Which now brings me to the disastrous ending of this book. Suddenly, tensions are rising between the factionless and the Allegiant the group who wants to re-establish the faction system and Evelyn decides she's going to use the Erudite death serum to wipe out her opponents.
But the Department of Genetic Welfare is having none of her shit so they decide that they're just going to wipe out everyone's memory so they don't kill each other. Can I also point out here that they used this memory-wiping serum before to trick the general population into thinking that the genetically damaged are alone the cause of the world's problems?
So you know, there wouldn't be massive protests or anything when the government decided to deliberately waste money trying to solve a problem they knew was fucked to begin with.
A race against the clock ensues where Four goes back to Chicago to try and wipe the memories of his parents to stop them from fighting while Tris stays behind to try and steal this memory serum and use it on the Department themselves. The book gets a little preachy right before this part where the characters start talking about how erasing someone's memories is inherently evilunless you have good intentions, of course.
The Department also has good intentions for using this serum on Chicago and saving the lives of thousands of people, but fuck logic. Our heroes would way rather just watch the people they love kill each other. And how exactly does the book wrap up the supposedly exciting and suspenseful conflict between the factionless and the Allegiant that has brewing in the background this whole time? No need to rip apart all of Chicago like she's been planning to her whole life. All she needs is her son.
A few supporting characters die in the book, but you don't really care. If the author didn't bother spending enough time developing that character, why should readers even flinch when they drop dead? Of course, the book makes these deaths a big deal but you're sitting there like Back in at the Department of Genetic Welfare, Caleb is picked for the suicide mission of breaking into the top-security vault to steal the memory-wiping serum.
This is only fitting as Caleb is literally the only character who needs to be redeemed for his betrayal in Insurgent. I mean, the tagline of the book is "one choice can define you" so if Caleb doesn't own up to this moment he's basically going to be a selfish, heartless, coward for the rest of the story.
Oh wait. This book hasn't sufficiently fucked up already so instead of using a perfectly good opportunity for a back-stabbing character to redeem themselves, it's just going to unnecessarily sacrifice the freaking main character because life is cruel and heartless goddammit!
I could literally write another essay on why this particular ending sucked balls, but before some anon messages me saying "omgg it's veronica's book and her ending was so tragic but so byootiful don't you know you're not allowed to hate it??!
This is literally all I ask of any author of any novel. From just a character perspective, it makes sense that Tris would sacrifice herself for the greater good.
That's just what she, as a selflessly reckless person, would do. We already know that Tris is a character who's willing to sacrifice herself for the greater good. Did we learn any new information about her character when she decided to make this sacrifice? Wouldn't we have gained a better perspective of Caleb if he had made this choice instead? And most importantly, wouldn't sparing Tris's life allow the final conclusion of this trilogy to be more sound, less rushed, and less overshadowed by the her death?
Tris's sacrifice comes off as being meaningless because she doesn't save anyone from dying. Had she failed to using the memory serum, the worst thing that would have happened was that Chicago would have been reset and the main conflict would have disappeared completely.
And that doesn't even matter in the end because all the major characters that we are supposed to care about were already inoculated against the memory serum anyway. In fact, by stealing the memory serum, Tris effectively tosses up the fate of Chicago in the air. The careless way her death is written and revealed makes the ending look like it was purely written simply for a cheap shock value. Cue the forced emotional and dramatic ending where readers drown in a puddle of their feels as we're forced to read Four's tragic reaction to her death.
The last few chapters, including the epilogue, are incredibly rushed.
