Happy Wednesday TV fans! After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 7, I learned that “giving up isn’t better” and that sometimes all we need is a little push. So do we take the easy way out or do we risk it all? Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet. In last night’s episode, “Nevermind,” Clarke is trapped within her shared mind space with Josephine and unlocks different memories from her past that lead her to the truth. Meanwhile, we also learn more about Josephine’s past, as Clarke and her face off. My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 7 are:
“How is this possible?”
In the beginning of the episode, Clarke is present in her mind space and comes face to face with drawings of her past, including some of Wells and Lexa. Clexa fans everywhere held their breath when she touched the drawing of Lexa sweetly. Too bad she wasn’t actually there! Clarke eventually stumbles upon her father, who acts as a sort of guide to get her through this. She asks him how this is possible while realizing that she must have died, but comes to the conclusion that she is actually still alive. Clarke’s father inspires her to go and figure everything out and it was sweet to see him return in this episode, as he reminds his daughter not to give up just yet.
“I’d keep this memory safe…”
Clarke’s father is not the only one to make a special guest appearance in Clarke’s mind space, as we also get to see A.L.I.E again, otherwise known as “the bitch in the red dress,” according to Murphy. Clarke realizes that this is some kind of dream or hallucination, recognizing that she destroyed her, but A.L.I.E reminds her that she exists because of her and helps her find a memory that Clarke needs to keep safe. We flash to Clarke using the EMP on Raven to extract the chip, reminding us that everything that has happened to Clarke has prepared her for this battle now. Clarke’s memories are the key, but will she be able to find a way to wake up before it’s too late?
“I don’t go down easy.”
Clarke also gets to meet the real Josephine face to face, as Josephine tells her that this body isn’t big enough for the both of them. Josephine may be intimidating, but Clarke is not going out without a fight. We know that this shared mind space can only hold both of these identities temporarily, as Josephine explains what happens when they share a mind space for too long, which could result in a stroke or brain hemorrhage, killing them both. Both Josephine and Clarke want to survive and it doesn’t look like Josephine will stop looking for Clarke’s hidden memory. However, this also leads them both to re-visiting some traumatic memories as well that take a toll on them.
“Why are you so torn up?”
After crossing paths with Octavia and Maya, Clarke’s guilt begins to overwhelm her. Josephine points out that perhaps she has killed more people than she has actually saved, but recognizes that she did what she had to do. Clarke tries to hide the memory about Raven, but Josephine tracks it down at the spot where Finn died. This is one of Clarke’s most painful memories and Josephine also brings up Lexa, but Clarke warns her to be quiet, showing her vulnerability when it comes to her lost love. Clarke wants to be there for Madi and her friends, but Josephine starts to get through to her, realizing that she may need to sacrifice herself to save them once again. But is she truly ready to say goodbye to her life forever?
“Giving up isn’t better!”
It seems like Clarke is ready to say goodbye to her life, but Monty shows up to remind her about who she is and how she can truly do better. I thought it was fitting to see Monty here because he always represented the hope and goodness of everyone. Monty teams up with Clarke and they sneak past the door to Josephine’s own memories and unlock some of her painful ones as well. It looks like Josephine has a lot of issues to work through too, but some of her memories were quite disturbing and she is clearly not over them just yet. Clarke uses this to her advantage and ends up sending Morse code out to Bellamy using Christmas lights and Bellamy spells out: ALIVE.
I’m so glad that Bellamy was the one to see this because he has always had Clarke’s back and he now knows that they need to find a way to save her before it’s too late. This is why I am such a huge Bellarke fan! I have to say that this was one of my favorite episodes of the series and the show did a fantastic job of bringing back some of our favorite characters while continuing the story-line forward, which worked beautifully. Clarke’s past is always there, but it looks like she is discovering that sometimes you need to use the past to drive forward to the future. I think it’s about time we get our girl Clarke back for good! Stay tuned!
