John Murphy and Emori on The 100, better known as Memori! The two outsiders on the show who somehow found their way to one another fly under the radar sometimes, but their love is real and inspiring. Please note some spoilers are ahead. There is just something so incredibly sweet about these two together. I fell in love with this ship a long time ago on the show and it continues to make me melt. Murphy has always been the bad boy, but he has the potential to be redeemed by love when he meets Emori. Emori is not without her faults either, as she has trouble trusting others and both characters were used to putting their own survival ahead of helping others in the past. However, that starts to change when they meet each other.
It seems like Emori has made more progress with her moral compass, as our favorite bad boy cannot always be trusted, but there is something magical about these two together. Even though Murphy can be a bit harsh with others, he wears his heart on his sleeve when it comes to his feelings for Emori. We’ve been lacking some serious screen time for these two for a while, but I was happy to see some swoon-worthy moments between them in season 6 episode 8.
Murphy gets down on one knee and asks Emori if she can love him forever. Even though Murphy is talking about siding with Josephine here and accepting immortality, I can’t skip over the sweetness of this moment. Emori ultimately has to choose between staying loyal to Murphy and doing the right thing. Even though she ends up telling Bellamy about John’s plan to get rid of Clarke, she still cares for him so deeply.
Later on, when Josephine stabs Murphy, Emori rushes over to his side and tells him to stay with her. Through it all, Memori continues to touch my heart and soul. Even though I was getting some vibes between Murphy and Raven for a while, I think that Memori is end game. They accept each other for who they are, faults and all.
What’s next for Memori? We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but it looks like they are in a lot of trouble. They are both taken prisoner by the Primes and Murphy’s injury looks pretty bad, so we will have to see if they can survive what happens next. I’m hoping so, but immortality may be out of reach for Murphy now, but perhaps he can realize that having the woman he loves with him is rewarding enough. I can’t wait to see what happens next for them!
Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!
