Happy Wednesday TV fans! After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 12, I learned that we can always try to “do better today than we did yesterday” and that it’s never too late to make amends. Maybe we’ll make someone proud or maybe we’ll get a chance to say what we need to, but we can never fully prepare for the moments that come next. Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet. In last night’s episode, “Adjustment Protocol,” Clarke continues to pose as Josephine, hoping to create a distraction that will allow Bellamy and Octavia to get past the shield. Meanwhile, Abby has a heartfelt chat with Raven, Murphy and Emori truly contemplate immortality, and Gabriel tries to make things right with the truth. My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 12 are:
“I will kill you for this.”
When Abby sees Clarke, she is hopeful that her daughter is still present, but Clarke needs to keep up appearances and says, “Oh stop. I’m not her.” Abby threatens Russell and tells him that she will kill him for this and she means business. Poor Abby. My heart honestly went out to her in this moment. Even though she is consumed by grief, she still holds on to her strong will and integrity through it all. Marcus would be proud Kabby fans!
“You’re fine until you’re not.”
Meanwhile, Bellamy and Octavia anxiously wait outside the shield, looking for their way into Sanctum. They are with the Children of Gabriel and everyone is chanting “death to Primes,” but Bellamy continues to place the burden on himself. Octavia tells him to have a little faith and perhaps that is exactly what he needs to hear. Even though it will take a long time for these two to be completely OK, I thought this was a sweet moment and perhaps Octavia will be able to redeem herself after all.
“I’m proud of you, Murphy.”
Initially, Murphy and Emori decide to accept Russell’s offer of immortality, but everything comes with a price. After Murphy witnesses what happens next, he has a change of heart and they decline the offer. Clarke tells Murphy that she is proud of him and Murphy realizes that she is not Josephine, explaining that Josephine always called him John.
Clarke and Murphy have been through so much together and Murphy was always the first one to call her out and blame her for everything, but here in this moment, he sees things clearly and realizes that there is much more at stake here. After all, can you truly have a meaningful life if you never die? Like Clarke, I was extremely proud of Murphy here, but let’s hope this is enough to spark him into action. We need all the help we can get now!
“It’s all a lie.”
Bellamy gets through to Priya when he threatens to destroy her son’s mind drive once and for all and she comes clean and tells all of Sanctum that everything is a lie. The Primes are not divine and the truth can be a dangerous thing, but Russell refuses to go quietly, releasing the Red Sun toxin into the air, which creates a form of mass hysteria. Priya is stabbed by Delilah’s mother, now realizing that her daughter is truly dead and everything is finally out in the open.
Now that Sanctum is basically at war, where will our favorite characters go to survive? We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but we’re running out of places where they can go. The Primes are looking to board the ship and come face to face with Indra and the others, so it looks like we are going to have a jam-packed season finale next week!
“I was focusing on what I lost and not what I have.”
Abby continues to try and protect Madi, injecting herself to keep her friends and family safe. After all, “like mother, like daughter.” Clarke and Abby also have a heartwarming moment, as Abby is relieved to discover that her daughter is actually still alive. We also get to witness a beautiful moment between Abby and Raven. Abby apologizes to Raven and tells her that she is her family, which brought tears to my eyes. A lot of heartfelt speeches in one episode is never a good sign on The 100, however.
Russell turns the tables on Abby and decides to take her as his next host for Simone. Simone now takes over Abby’s body and Clarke is overwhelmed with grief. Clarke was able to still hold on once she had the mind drive in her own head, but is it possible for Abby to do the same? I’m not sure, but I am beyond heartbroken and I am hoping that there is a chance that she can somehow still be OK.
Abby is smart and resourceful, so is it possible that she found a way out of this? The “like mother, like daughter” comment comes to mind again here. Is it possible that someone intervened and Abby is posing as Simone? We’ll have to wait and see, but for now it looks like the real Abby is gone and I’m not sure I can handle that. I’m still staying positive though! May we meet again. Stay tuned!
