The burden of leading weighs heavily upon Clarke and Bellamy when different challenges force them to determine who will live and die.
Clarke’s speech at the end was great. She might have been fudging the details, but at least she got the volunteers that they desperately need and they’ll figure out the water and the food once Alpha Station has been repaired. “We won’t just survive, we’ll thrive.” I echo what Raven said. Nice speech indeed. Clarke might not be the chancellor anymore, but the people still clearly respect her as the de facto leader.
All the Clarke/Raven scenes made me so happy. Now that Clexa is no more, my crack ship of Princess Mechanic is my happy place. Clarke telling Raven that she’s the only one she trusts to rebuild the station made me smile. They make such a great team, don’t they?
Raven mentioning Sinclair broke my heart. “I wish Sinclair was still alive.”
Octavia being a total fucking badass is the best. Her killing that ambassador to save Roan’s life and to keep the peace between the coalition was a good decision. Otherwise, all hell would have broken loose and everyone would have come after Skaikru.
Roan insisting that he wants to fight even after Echo kicked his ass made me so annoyed. Why doesn’t he listen to her, Kane, and Octavia for a change? His ego is that big that he would rather die and risk the coalition ending just so his pride doesn’t get hurt? He’s lucky Octavia took things in her own hands.
Kane and Abby had sex! Whoa, didn’t see that coming so soon. It’s too bad they’re now going to be separated with Abby going back to Arkadia. They really do have great chemistry together.
Can someone please punch Jasper in his face? What a waste of screen time this character has been so far. If he’s going to be this way for the rest of the season, I say kill him off because he’s annoying and doesn’t serve any purpose to the storyline. I really was rooting for Clarke to knock him on ass.
Nice to see a new clan being introduced, but it looks like they’ll be at odds with the rest of the coalition. I wonder if the show will have something happen between Octavia and Ilian.
