Happy Wednesday TV fans! After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 2, I learned that “not everything that’s miraculous is a miracle.” But what happens when you are trapped within your circumstances with no way out? Do you rely on others or do you look within yourself to find a way to survive? Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet. In last night’s episode, “Red Sun Rising,” Clarke and the others deal with the air contamination threat, as they begin to realize that any one of them can become a danger to themselves and others. Meanwhile, Octavia’s rage continues to spiral out of control and everyone else on board the ship has to deal with some hijackers. My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 2 are:
“Sanctum is mine!”
In the beginning of the episode, we get to see Alpha, or “Sanctum,” approximately 236 years earlier. We see a small group of people there and watch in horror as a young girl’s father turns on everyone he loves. This glimpse into the past allowed us to learn that this threat in the air has been around for quite some time and no one is safe. So is there any way to stop it or will the group be forced to find somewhere else to live? I mean, I think we are running out of planets and moons at this point…
“You’re both soft and that’s why you woke me up.”
We knew it would only be a matter of time before drama kicked in on the ship, as some hijackers come on board and lock our group in the mess hall. Raven is not with them and doesn’t have many choices if she wants to save her friends, which causes her to wake up Diyoza. Diyoza is ready for action even though she is heavily pregnant, as she takes down the majority of the hijackers and tries to negotiate with the remaining ones.
After Diyoza’s plan comes undone, Madi jumps in with perfect timing to help save the day, so it looks like everyone has officially woken up, but who are these hijackers and what do they want? Madi has questions and so do I, as we learn that one could have been a Nightblood. The surviving female hijacker is taken hostage, as she leads Abby and some of the others to Clarke’s group, but what do they ultimately want and can they be trusted? I’m anxious to find out for sure.
“Let her live with what she’s become.”
In this episode, Octavia’s rage continues to spiral out of control, as she begins channeling her anger and beating up a wall on the ship. We know that Octavia has a lot of issues to work through and she is all for placing the blame on anyone except herself, but it looks like she is going down a very dangerous path. Octavia isn’t making any friends and it looks like she is enjoying her punishment, as they all begin beating her up, but Abby stops it and says that she will live with what she’s become. Is this the right choice? Can Octavia turn a corner? We’ll have to wait and see, but perhaps she can put her fighting skills to good use when they get on the ground.
“We have no idea how to survive down here.”
Clarke and the others begin to take extreme measures, realizing that any one of them could have been exposed to the threat in the air…or the plants? They all separate and chain themselves up to stop them from harming one another, but we witness the hallucinations tear this group apart, threatening their lives. It’s clear that this threat is very dangerous and unstable, but we really don’t know much about it. I’m actually extremely worried to see if Octavia is eventually exposed to this, as she is already channeling enough rage for an entire Wonkru army…
“Isn’t this your home?”
At the end of the episode, Clarke is reunited with her mother and the others, while the female hijacker looks around in concern. It seems like the eclipse is now over, along with the threat, as a group of children approach them. A little girl asks Clarke if they are there to take them home, which confuses Clarke and the others. As if this isn’t cryptic enough, Murphy also has some kind of disease spreading over his body, so what does this mean for him? Perhaps these children will be able to give us some answers, but why did it seem like the female hijacker was afraid of them? Is it possible that they are immune to the threat? Stay tuned!
