Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 3: “False Gods”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 3, I was reminded that “wanting to die and facing it are two different things.” 

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

In last night’s episode, “False Gods,” Raven makes a tough decision for the good of Sanctum, but has she crossed a line in doing so? Meanwhile, Clarke deals with her own actions and Wonkru learns the truth about Madi.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 3 are:

5

“Either we live together or die apart.”

I don’t know about you, but I found myself repeating Jack Shephard’s infamous line from LOST: “Live together, die alone,” but I suppose Russell Prime (Sheiheda) changed it up just enough…

Either way, Russell is about to be burned at the stake, but things get complicated when there is a divide between Sanctum. Clarke realizes that they will now need to keep Russell alive, which means that Sheidheda’s plan is working all to well.

4

“Fighting is what we are.”

During the episode, Clarke deals with the consequences of her actions, realizing that she lost herself when she called for Russell’s life. She stands before her mother’s grave and tells her that she will do her best to make her proud, but Clarke is clearly having a tough time here.

Clarke comes to the realization that they keep ending up in the same place and that perhaps “fighting is what they are.” We know that the end is in sight here, but is there a way for Clarke to help her people finally find some kind of normalcy and peace? Let’s hope so.

I am also loving the new friendship between Clarke and Gaia and perhaps there is a little bit more here to ship. I’m a Bellarke fan for life, but I can’t ignore some of the vibes being thrown our way.

3

“We’ll all die…”

Oh, is that all. As if Sanctum doesn’t have enough to deal with, Raven stumbles upon an unstable reactor that could destroy everyone. She is faced with a difficult task, but is up for the challenge with Memori’s help, but I’m not sure that everyone is going to make it.

Either way, let’s keep giving Raven and Memori screen time because they deserve it!

2

“We cannot ask The Commander because there is no Commander!”

Well, that makes things complicated. Raven is looking for members of Wonkru to volunteer as tribute to help her fix the reactor and she wants people she can trust. Indra, Clarke, and Gaia clash over whether or not to involve Madi, but Gaia ultimately decides to tell everyone that there is no more Commander.

Wonkru is outraged and Indra points out, “You just lost Wonkru.” There is now an even greater divide among the people in Sanctum, which I’m sure Sheidheda will use to his advantage.

It looks like Raven will need to turn to the prisoners for help now…

1

“You’re the Queen of doing the impossible.”

That’s a great way to describe our girl, Raven and our favorite cockroach is back in action as well. Only, the moral compass is certainly wavering back and forth here. After convincing the prisoners to help with the cause, Raven fails to mention how dangerous this task really is.

Since Murphy and Emori have Nightblood, they will most likely be fine with some radiation exposure, but others won’t be so lucky. Things get beyond tense when Murphy and Emori work to bring down the pressure, but when everyone starts getting sick, Raven realizes that the radiation is leaking more than she realized.

She recognizes that the prisoners will die and Murphy tries to get her to see reason and even points out that perhaps she can get in there and fix what is wrong. Raven clings to the delegation role here; however, and the few prisoners lose their lives in order to save the many.

It would have been nice to let them know that they were sacrificing their lives though…

Raven has done the impossible again to save her people, but has she just crossed a line? We’ll have to wait and see, but I don’t think things are going to calm down at all on Sanctum.

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 2: “The Garden”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 2, I was reminded that “teamwork makes the dream work,” but oftentimes we still need to see things through on our own.

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

In last night’s episode, “The Garden,” we finally learn about the anomaly in the past and present. Octavia’s fate is revealed while we discover more about Hope and where she comes from.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 2 are:

5

“What took you so long?”

Well, apparently time is pretty relative in the anomaly. You can be in the anomaly for years and only be gone on Sanctum for about five minutes. This makes time travel seem like a piece of cake compared to this vortex of uncertainty.

The episode presents us with flashbacks from when Octavia went through the anomaly and also allows us to catch up with Echo, Gabriel, and Hope in the somewhat present or future? Yeah, I’m still piecing that together.

Either way, the beginning of the episode gives us some hope, (pun intended) as Octavia catches up with Diyoza and helps her while she is in labor. We get this heartwarming moment where Octavia sees Hope for the first time and it’s clear that there is an unbreakable bond between this unlikely family.

I’m glad to see that Diyoza is OK, although her present fate is still undetermined.

4

“What is it about Bellamy?”

A fair question for sure! Bellamy is just that guy that you can depend on. Even when he shuns you completely, you know that you must have done something to earn that. Bellamy is loyal and trustworthy. Octavia is focused on letting him know that she finally understands and Echo reminds us that she can kick a lot of ass to find him.

Seriously, Echo is becoming one of my favorite characters. I’m not sure when this happened, but I’m worried about her fate now.

We still do not know Bellamy’s fate, but I think it’s safe to say that if he has this many people asking about his well being, he’s probably OK. Besides, I’m still waiting for my epic Bellarke moment!!!!

3

“This is my way out.”

As we witness Octavia’s new life, we learn that she has really connected with Diyoza and Hope. Even though Bellamy will always be her family, she has another family now and Diyoza tries to remind her of this.

The 100 7 2 3 The CW

However, Octavia is still determined to find a way back to Sanctum to help and warn Bellamy. She tries to swim toward the light, but can’t hold her breath long enough to reach it. After finding a suit that may be able to help her, Diyoza sabotages the helmet.

Diyoza recognizes that Octavia or “Aunty O” is an important influence in Hope’s life and she doesn’t want to lose her.

Gotta say that “Blodreina” may have had a catchier ring, but Octavia can certainly rock “Aunty O” too!

2

“Welcome to Skyring.”

We have another planet in The 100 realm and it has a catchy name for sure. In somewhat present day, Echo, Gabriel, and Hope try to track down clues and learn that the anomaly may be a bridge between worlds.

The 100 7 2 4 The CW

We also find out about the scary guys chasing them who are named The Disciples.

But who are The Disciples and what do they want? It looks like we will have to wait a little longer to find out more information on them.

Hope casually mentions that they will have to wait five years before they can return, but Echo doesn’t think that’s an acceptable answer.

After Gabriel finds a potential code that will help them escape, a deranged man who has been living in Skyring destroys it because nothing can be easy on The 100.

We certainly got a lot of explanations surrounding the anomaly, but it looks like we still have a lot of mystery remaining.

1

“I understand…”

Once again, we witness the incredible and brilliant transformation of Octavia’s character. The girl under the floor has seen it all. She displayed strength then and went through an unimaginable loss when she watched Lincoln die in front of her.

After that, she trained until she became a fierce warrior and lost herself as Blodreina.

After trying to make amends, Octavia has finally found a peace within her. With Diyoza and Hope’s help, Octavia has finally released the darkness that was weighing her down, but she can’t fully embrace her true identity until she lets Bellamy know that she understands.

She writes this beautiful and moving letter to him, hoping that he will somehow see it one day. She says, “I wish I could see your face and tell you that I get it now.” Octavia recognizes that she might be old or dead by the time Bellamy sees the letter and tells him that she did find happiness and wants Bellamy to be happy too.

Octavia Blake has truly transformed over this series and I can’t wait to see how it all ends.

Now back to Sanctum in our next episode…

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 1: “From the Ashes”

Happy Thursday TV fans! The wait is over and the final season is here! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 1 season premiere, I was reminded that “none of this makes any sense, but my god, it’s incredible!” Our favorite characters may all be on new paths now, but as Indra hilariously pointed out: “new world…same problems.” 

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

In last night’s episode, “From the Ashes,” Clarke is ready to put an end to violence on Sanctum, but has she really taken a moment to deal with her own grief? Meanwhile, Bellamy, Echo, and Gabriel deal with Hope and the anomaly.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 1 season premiere are:

5

“There’s never been an ex commander…”

Well, I suppose there is a first time for everything. Creepy Sheidheda may be gone from Madi, but so is the flame. Only Madi is not aware of that fact. Everyone is determined to keep up appearances so they can maintain the peace, but it’s only a matter of time before everything falls apart.

After all, this is The 100. Everyone assumes that Sheidheda is gone, but we know that he’s going to rear his creepy head again soon. Either way, it was nice to see Madi enjoying some normalcy in a real home with a dog.

I’m not sure that she can hold on to that childhood innocence for much longer though.

4

“To Abby.”

Everyone takes a moment to mourn the loss of Abby, but I’m not sure that Clarke has fully dealt with anything. Meanwhile, Murphy starts to develop a serious case of remorse, blaming himself for Abby’s death.

Raven reminds Murphy and Emori that they need to keep up appearances and pretend to be Primes which leads to a great performance from one of my favorite couples, but I’m not sure that everyone is buying it.

3

“Trust Bellamy.”

Of course we trust Bellamy, but Diyoza’s grown up daughter, Hope, reads this message as she enters Sanctum from the anomaly.

The 100 7 1 3 The CW

After Bellamy and Echo get separated, Echo shows off just how bad-ass she can be. I have to say that I am really liking her character development, but I still need her to move aside so I can finally have my Bellarke moment.

With the help of Gabriel and Hope, Echo takes down an invisible threat and the three of them head off into the anomaly to see if they can find Octavia.

The anomaly plot may be the most complicated one on the show, but my biggest question is:

Where are Bellamy and Octavia?

I just hope we don’t have to wait until the end of the series to see Bellamy reunited with Clarke…

2

“You take a breath and then another.”

That’s actually really great advice, Clarke, but “why are you protecting the man who killed your mother?” Clarke seems focused on putting an end to war and violence on Sanctum, but this is easier said than done.

Everyone wants Russell to burn, but Clarke keeps him alive. Only Russell continues to push some buttons when he hands Clarke her mother’s things, sparking her emotions and grief within her.

The 100 7 1 4 The CW
Images courtesy of The CW

Clarke loses control and begins beating up Russell as she screams, “Is this what you want?” Meanwhile, creepy Sheidheda now has control of Russell and is clearly up to no good.

I can’t say that I really blame Clarke, but we now have a new problem…Sheidheda.

1

“Sanctum is free!”

Is it though? Clarke makes this big speech and declaration after her encounter with Russell. She says that Russell will burn for his crimes, as her friends watch in confusion. Clarke is going down a very dangerous path and I don’t think that her mother would approve.

Maybe we need Bellamy to get her back on track…

Either way, this was a jam-packed season premiere and I can’t wait to see how the show ends. I am really hoping we finally get a real and true Bellarke moment that I can ship. Fingers crossed!!!!!

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 13 Season Finale: “Tell Me It Was Worth It”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 13 season finale, I learned that sometimes accepting the truth isn’t always possible.  If we have been brought up on a lie, do our lives still have meaning when the lie is finally exposed or is there still a chance to discover the truth within ourselves?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  

In last night’s episode, “The Blood of Sanctum,” Clarke continues to pose as Josephine, but things get a little tricky when she realizes that many innocent lives are at stake.  Meanwhile, Murphy tries out being a hero, Abby’s fate is revealed, and Octavia’s destiny becomes more complicated.  My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 13 season finale are:

5

“Who’s the hero now?”

You are, John Murphy!  Especially after you had that “interesting” kiss with that guy from Sanctum!  Murphy was really committing to the role, but he did say he was a good kisser.  Good thing Emori isn’t the jealous type.  Either way, I was thrilled to finally see Murphy do the right thing to help his friends. 

After the truth is revealed about the Primes, non-believers are being killed, but Murphy decides to get his friends out of there and brings them to the palace to move them out of harm’s way.  Murphy still contemplates just doing what is right for him and his friends, but risks it all and continues with this dangerous charade to help everyone in need.  Thanks Murphy!

4

“I am sorry for your loss.”

Meanwhile, Clarke realizes that she cannot let Russell and the other Primes kill any more innocent people and she decides to turn the tables on them, revealing her true identity.  Russell is beyond upset to find out that his daughter is dead and he turns further down his path of revenge.  We get a small glimmer of hope when Simone turns the gun on her people, telling Clarke that she is really Abby and that she has been pretending too.

Clarke holds on to this hope for just a second, but is smart enough to ask Abby what her father’s name is.  Simone’s plan fails and Clarke pulls the fail-safe switch, ultimately floating and killing Simone in Abby’s body.  I was already so incredibly heartbroken from last week’s episode, but I was still holding on to the hope that Abby might somehow be OK.  However, that hope was ripped away from us in the season finale, as we said goodbye to Abby Griffin for good.  May we meet again.  You will be missed!

3

“You’re as weak as her…”

After Clarke goes through the trauma of losing her mother, she cannot bear to lose Madi too.  However, the Dark Commander is not making things easy, as he continues to control Madi, manipulating Russell into following him toward an even darker path of revenge.  The Dark Commander tells Clarke that Lexa told him that she was strong, but he thinks that she is weak because of her love.  Clarke holds a gun to her head, trying to get through to Madi and is successful, as Madi is able to surface with perfect timing.

Raven comes in the clutch and reminds Clarke that they need to take out the flame to save Madi.  Clarke is beyond grateful and the two bond for a moment over losing Abby, which was touching to see.  Madi may not be the Commander anymore, but she is alive and we can all breathe a sigh of relief…at least for the moment.

2

“Tell me it was worth it.”

Despite all the heartbreak in this episode, we do get a beautiful Bellarke moment, as Bellamy and Clarke embrace after everything is over.  Clarke asks him if they truly did better and Bellamy tries to convince her that they are making a step in the right direction, but how will Clarke cope without her mother?  Now that we know that The 100’s season 7 will be the last season of the show, is there hope for Bellarke to finally be together?  Fingers crossed!  Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed this small moment and pretty much any embrace between Bellarke makes me swoon!

1

“Side by side…like it was meant to be.”

Even though a lot of the attention is centered on Clarke in this episode, Octavia continues to try and redeem herself, making her an even more interesting character.  Octavia never ceases to surprise me and she is the first one to tell Gabriel that she is willing to help save the innocent people of Sanctum, truly embracing the role of a hero.  Octavia continues to make courageous decisions now and it looks like her destiny is about to be explored even further when Gabriel discovers that the Anomaly Stone has formed tattoos on her back.  Gabriel has been studying these for quite some time and believes that Octavia is the key...but the key to what?

When Octavia touches the stone, the intense green light is released and our favorite characters are greeted by….Diyoza’s grown-up daughter, Hope, who stabs Octavia, causing her to vanish before their very eyes.  Bellamy screams out for his sister and our favorite characters are left out in the open.  We can only assume that this is either the Anomaly itself or it has somehow taken over Sanctum.

We know there are other planets that still exist based on what Russell said, but I’m not sure where are characters are now, but it looks like we have our setup for season 7.  Will Octavia be OK?  Is Clarke stuck in the same Anomaly?  We’ll have to wait and see, but I can’t wait to see how it all ends!  Stay tuned!

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own theories and thoughts on The 100 in the comments section below.  Thanks for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 11: “For Monty”

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:

5

“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!

4

“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!

3

“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.

2

“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?

1

“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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 10: “Can’t Do This Forever”

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!
