Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 9: “The Flock”

Happy Wednesday TV fans! After finally watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 9, I realized that trust is important. It’s important for one another and it’s important for mankind, but what happens when the people you trust the most turn against you?

Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.

In episode 9, “The Flock,” we catch up with Octavia, Echo, Diyoza, and Hope, as they show us what happened three months prior to being reunited with Clarke. Meanwhile, Murphy and Indra team up with an unlikely ally to stop a hostage situation.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 9 are:


“This is all that is left…”

Well, we finally got to see what was behind door number one, as Octavia, Diyoza, Echo, and Hope follow Anders into the elevator three months prior to present day. As they accept their training to become disciples, they quickly learn that they are about to begin fighting an “unwinnable war,” as they now realize that Gabriel actually did save their lives.

The air outside is fatal and the condition of it suggests that perhaps there really will be nothing left at the end of all of this…

Let’s hope not!


“She’s brave. I’ll give her that.”

Meanwhile, back on Sanctum, Murphy is dealing with a hostage situation, as Nikki holds Emori and the rest of the people there hostage. Nikki wants Murphy, Russell, and Raven to turn themselves in, but that’s going to be a little difficult to achieve since Raven is currently MIA.

Murphy definitely needs some backup here and luckily Indra hears the special announcement. Perhaps two out of three will satisfy Nikki, but Murphy is not going to leave his Emori behind.


“You’ve seen me at my worst…and best.”

I guess we weren’t too far off with the vibes we have been noticing between our girl Octavia and Levitt. Octavia is no stranger to the Romeo and Juliet type of forbidden love, but there is something really sweet and genuine about these two.

Octavia and the others are being told to check their emotions at the door, but it looks like Levitt is under her spell for good now…swoon!

Let’s just hope that Octavia finally gets a happily ever after because she has been through some real heartbreak and I’m not sure I can take much more.


“Following rules isn’t how you win a war.”

Well, maybe not, but Echo is tossing all of her emotions out the door. Anders notices that Echo is a model of perfect control and thinks she will be the way they win the war, but has Echo gone too far?

She is basically shedding her soul, but we know that it’s because she can’t process her grief over Bellamy. I just hope she doesn’t end up on a path of destruction because it’s not looking too good for her right now…

Everyone is given a series of tests during their training and the final test basically causes them to sacrifice someone they love for the good of all mankind. Echo passes her test with flying colors along with Diyoza and Octavia, but Hope is not able to do so.

Echo decides her punishment and banishes her to Penance for five years while poor Diyoza holds back her tears. Talk about brutal…


“What are subjects without kings?”

Murphy and Indra are forced to team up with Russell Prime (Sheidheda) and I’m not sure that this is really a beautiful friendship, but they have no choice. Murphy admits to everyone that they are not Primes and the truth is finally out in the open.

This leads to a lot of chaos, but luckily Indra shows up with perfect timing to save Murphy from being killed in front of Emori.

Sheidheda is loving the destruction and violence and finally rises as the new king as he slaughters the entire “flock” of people standing before him.

It looks like he is finally unleashing his wrath, but let’s hope that Indra can stop this demon once and for all. I’m rooting for you, Indra!

New episodes return August 5th 2020! Let’s hope we finally get some answers about where Gaia is and Bellamy’s confirmed fate.

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!
