Happy Wednesday TV fans! After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 10, I realized that “we can let the bad things that happened to us define who we are or we can define who we are.” But it doesn’t hurt to have a little help or reminder from the people who love us every now and again. Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet. In last night’s episode, “Matryoshka,” the Lightbournes are out for revenge, which puts everyone in danger. Meanwhile, Josephine and Clarke continue to struggle to survive and Madi refuses to listen to reason. My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 10 are:
“The dream of Sanctum is already dead.”
After Marcus’s sacrifice, the Lightbournes are not happy and hold Abby and Raven as prisoners. Simone decides to be extra cruel and tells Abby that her daughter is dead, which is not exactly true. Abby has just lost the love of her life and the last thing she needs to hear right now is that her daughter is dead too. Russell fears that the truth about the Primes is going to spread to his people and places Sanctum under lock down as a precaution. Simone is out for blood and wants an execution, which puts the lives of our favorite characters in immediate danger, especially after Madi’s Dark Commander killing spree.
“The barrier between our minds is breaking down.”
Clarke and Josephine are running out of time and it looks like their only option is to team up at this point. I’m not sure they will ever be friends, even though Josephine seems to think that they are somehow, but Clarke understands the importance of survival and begins to improvise to save them some time by deleting some of Josephine’s memories. We get a glimpse into Josephine and Gabriel’s past and Clarke shows some sympathy here, but Josephine cannot be trusted and this body is not big enough for the both of them.
“Just take the flame out of her head.”
Madi continues to unravel in this episode, still under the control of Sheidheda, the Dark Commander. Gaia is taken prisoner as well and recognizes the threat, but Abby will not allow anyone to hurt a child. However, there is a sleeping army waiting for Madi’s command, which is not to be taken lightly, but perhaps there is another way. Raven thinks that Sheidheda can be deleted, but let’s hope she is able to do this before Madi strikes again.
“The answer’s not immortality…it’s morality.”
Well said, Raven and perhaps this is just the advice Murphy needs right now, as his betrayal is about to catch up to him. The group initially thinks that only one person will be executed and of course, Murphy is volunteered as tribute. However, after a member of Sanctum stabs Simone, Russell is out for blood and it is announced that the entire group will be burned at the stake.
Echo can’t save everyone with her bow and arrow, but luckily a light bulb goes off in Murphy’s head, explaining to Russell that bone marrow can be used to make someone a Nightblood. Abby jumps on board here and explains that she has the formula, which at least gets them 24 hours to convince Russell. Our characters are safe, but Russell decides to make an example out of the man who stabbed his wife, brutally burning him alive. It may have initially seemed like Simone was the bad guy, but Russell has a dangerous side as well.
“I’m not letting you go!”
When Josephine’s guards show up, it looks like Clarke is out of luck, but Bellamy is there to save the day! Josephine is disgusted by the cliche, but he uses this as an opportunity to get a message to Russell, hoping to bargain with Josephine’s mind drive. Bellamy and Octavia finally reunite briefly, but they need to put this on hold since Clarke’s life is in immediate danger. Gabriel seems willing to perform the procedure to remove the drive, but he does not want to live forever anymore, explaining to Josephine that they already had their time together even though he has loved her for centuries.
During the procedure, Josephine tries to hide in the mesh of Clarke’s brain, hoping to eliminate her once and for all, but Bellamy refuses to give up on Clarke and tells her to fight. Clarke destroys Josephine and wakes up, just in time for us to witness an absolutely swoon-worthy embrace between Bellarke! Yay! I’ll take any Bellarke moment I can get and this was worth the wait. It’s great to have our girl back, but what will Russell do now that Josephine is gone? Stay tuned!
