Happy Wednesday TV fans! After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 11, I learned that “mistakes are forgivable. Not learning from them isn’t.” But what if we continue to make the same mistakes again and again? Is there any chance that we can obtain that fresh start or are we destined to repeat our biggest regrets? Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet. In last night’s episode, “Ashes to Ashes,” Madi plays a dangerous game of chess with the Dark Commander, but will her quest for revenge consume her? Meanwhile, Clarke and Bellamy try to come up with a way to save their friends, Echo revisits her past, and Octavia attempts to make amends with her brother. My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 11 are:
“I want you to rule this world.”
The Dark Commander is not releasing his hold on Madi anytime soon, as he continues to manipulate her. A glimmer of Madi still remains; however, choosing to hurt Jackson rather than kill him. Madi is now being held captive, as her bone marrow is used to make Nightblood, but it’s only a matter of time before she breaks free. Madi is focusing her anger on getting revenge for Clarke, but will Clarke be able to stop her before she loses herself completely to darkness? The Dark Commander wants her to destroy everything and everyone, but what is his end game in this? Will Madi’s path of destruction somehow free him in the process? It seems that he is contained for now, but I am very concerned for our girl Madi!
“You’re a slippery one.”
Russell Lightbourne decides to use Murphy’s skills to get his daughter back, recognizing that Murphy typically does things that will benefit him in some way. Murphy is no stranger to playing both sides, but when Russell threatens to harm Emori if John fails, it seems the stakes are a bit higher for our favorite bad boy. Murphy seems to want to still help his friends, as he tries to tell Bellamy what is going on, but will Murphy be able to make a selfless choice in the end? We’ll have to wait and see!
“Hesitation is death.”
Echo is taken prisoner and Russell decides that she will be the first host used to test the Nightblood experiment and will be Simone’s new home. Echo refuses to give up and even stalls by revealing a bit about her own past, which was actually really interesting to see. As a child, she killed her friend to save her own life and took on her identity as “Echo,” working as an assassin for the Queen. Echo is no stranger to having her previous life wiped clean, but she clearly took her lesson of “hesitation is death” seriously, as she kills Ryker before he can turn the tables on her again. Echo is now a Nightblood, which makes her a target, but she is definitely someone I would want to have on my side.
“I need you in my life.”
Bellamy and Octavia finally get a chance to catch up in this episode and Octavia takes this time to try and make amends. Octavia explains that Bellamy was right for leaving her behind and says that everything’s changed. Octavia’s journey of self-reflection through the Anomaly has clearly had a major influence on her, but Bellamy is treading carefully here. Bellamy has been burned by Octavia before, but he does tell her that she is still his sister…just not his responsibility.
Octavia may not be looking for forgiveness, but she does want to make things right. She also says that Diyoza must have been killed by the Anomaly, but is that really true? Something tells me we haven’t seen the last of Diyoza. Either way, this was an important moment between Bellamy and Octavia. I am looking forward to witnessing more of her character transformation, but is it possible that Blodreina is truly gone for good?
“So I won’t fail.”
Clarke is so grateful to Bellamy for saving her, but now they also have to save their friends. Go Team Bellarke! Bellamy is concerned now that their bargaining mind drive is gone, but Clarke thinks that she can pose as Josephine. Bellamy is clearly worried about this plan, but we know that our girl Clarke can do anything she puts her mind to. Clarke and Bellamy are both trying to do better and agree to execute the plan “for Monty,” hoping to make him proud and taking his words to heart.
Clarke is actually pretty convincing as Josephine, but things get a little bit complicated when she sees what is happening with Madi. She lies to her and tells her that Clarke is gone, which is only going to fuel Madi’s fire, but we’ll have to see how long Clarke can keep this charade going. Stay tuned!
