Happy Thursday TV fans! After finally watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 11, we were left with an important dilemma: “all alive, but just out of reach…” Sometimes we need to channel a strength we never even knew existed to survive, but do we lose everyone we love in the process?
Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.
In episode 11, “Etherea,” we finally find out exactly what happened to Bellamy. Bellamy is back and it’s about time. Meanwhile, Clarke decides what to do next to help save her friends.
My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 11 are:
“No one is coming to save us…”
Even though Levitt has now discovered that Bellamy is in fact alive, he is a little bit out of reach. Good thing Bellamy Blake always has a plan. When Bellamy gets blasted by the anomaly, he winds up in Etherea with the Disciple control room conductor. Bellamy is forced to work with his enemy in order to find a way off this planet, but working together may not be so easy…
Either way…Bellamy Blake is alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
“It doesn’t bring peace.”
Bellamy brushes up on his reading since there is a lot of time to pass and learns a lot about the Disciples and their beliefs. He thinks that the Cave of Ascent is far-fetched, but his enemy continues to enlighten him, explaining that they both have a purpose that is bigger than them.
Bellamy doesn’t think that one can achieve transcendence through war, but he certainly has a lot to think about.
“Love is not the problem. It’s how you love that is.”
Bellamy continues to hold on to his love for his family and friends, but he is warned that this is selfish love and that the Disciples love all mankind and do what is necessary for the good of the many.
We get several hints about a “leap of faith” along the way and after Bellamy is saved from the brutal storm by his enemy, they actually find the “Cave of Ascent.” Bellamy finally lets his guard down and prays with his enemy and ends up seeing his mother, who acts as a guide for him during this other state of mind or hallucination.
“This is our only chance…”
I almost felt like I was re-watching Game of Thrones with Jon Snow climbing the wall. This episode brought back all those feels, as Bellamy and the Disciple embark on a dangerous journey of their own up the wall.
I have to admit I was on the edge of my seat for this one as well. When Bellamy gets to the top, they are able to access the anomaly, but have to literally take a leap of faith to reach the bridge.
And of course, we have Bill waiting for him on the other side…
So, we welcome back Bellamy and he immediately kneels to Bill. I was hoping that this would just be another long con (taking a play out of Echo’s book), but now I’m not so sure.
At the very end of the episode, Bellamy is reunited with his friends and we focus in on Octavia, Echo, and Clarke, who are beyond shocked to see him.
We get a small Bellarke moment, as Clarke rushes over to hug him, whispering that she no longer has the flame (the key) and that they’ll figure something out.
However, Bellamy turns around and betrays her, revealing exactly what she said to Bill.
So, has Bellamy truly become a believer or not? In the beginning of this post, I mentioned that Bellamy always has a plan so I’d like to believe that there is a way out of this, but he also went through some crazy near death trippy stuff during his journey.
Maybe, it’s going to take family to bring him back since the hallucination of his mother lured him into this mess.
Octavia, you’re up!
I thought this episode was so incredibly well done and we finally got to confirm that Bellamy is actually alive. Now, we need to do something about him being brainwashed…
Bellarke fans, let’s hope that we can get more than an embrace…soon! We’re running out of time!
May we meet again.
