Happy Wednesday TV fans! After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 6, I learned that “we’re all the hero of our own story,” but there is always a choice to be made. If we know right from wrong, which path do we head down? The path toward survival or one toward revenge? Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet. In last night’s episode, “Memento Mori,” Murphy works with Clarke/Josephine to earn Abby’s trust. Meanwhile, Raven and Echo take a moral stand, Diyoza attempts to save Octavia’s life, and Madi is haunted by the Dark Commander. My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 6 are:
“I can’t lose you…”
Murphy teaches Josephine how to be Clarke and she seems to be a quick study, but she does take a moment to recognize that Clarke “was fairly awesome” and I have to agree with her. Josephine is no Clarke; however, as she is out for herself, looking for a way to trick Abby into teaching the Primes how to make Nightbloods. Clarke/Josephine proves to be a master manipulator, playing on Abby’s feelings for Kane. Abby agrees to help, but will she really be on board once she finds out that her daughter is gone? Let’s just hope she doesn’t give away all the secrets on how to become a Nightblood too quickly.
“She’s as lost as they come and yet you help her.”
Diyoza and Octavia are not having an easy time, as Octavia’s life is threatened once again. Apparently there is a cure to help Octavia, but we quickly learn that she doesn’t have much time left. Only the anomaly infecting her apparently has a message and Octavia may have been chosen for something? I’m a little fuzzy on all of this and I’m hoping I get some more details because there are a lot of complicated story-lines going on, but I’m interested to see what this anomaly means for Octavia.
I’m also still loving the friendship between Diyoza and Octavia, as Diyoza sees so much of herself in Octavia and is trying to help her before she “ends up in the same history page,” proving that it’s never too late for redemption, even though Diyoza doesn’t seem to be a fan of the concept.
“I take big swings.”
Clarke/Josephine may be a master manipulator, but it is possible that she has finally met her match with John Murphy, who puts his acting skills to the test. Murphy is a survivor, but we never really know which side he is truly on, but that’s what makes his character so interesting. After getting thrown into a cell with Bellamy, he is eventually called out, as Bellamy has been burned by him before.
Murphy ends up turning the tables on Clarke/Josephine; however, bringing Russell Lightborn into the mix to protect his people. We know that Murphy saw something when he died so his survival instinct is stirring, but let’s hope that he picks a side and stays with it. That being said, it’s always fun to see this darker and dangerous side of Murphy, reminding us that he is not to be underestimated.
“No more lessons…”
“The flame is my guide and I am the flame.” Well sure, but Madi is getting a lot more than she bargained for when the Dark Commander continues to invade her dreams. She even starts seeing him in reflections and I have to admit that he is extremely creepy. Gaia suggests that they complete a separation ritual, but the Dark Commander has other ideas, as he starts to worm his way in, corrupting Madi.
Is Madi going over to the dark side? It is possible, as she is grieving over her recent loss, ready to learn how to “kill them all.” Madi is choosing a path of revenge right now, but will she be able to find the light? Let’s hope that Clarke can kick Josephine out of her mind before it’s too late, otherwise a new Dark Commander may be rising. I’m loving this story-line and it’s about time Madi got some well deserved screen time!
“We do what Clarke would have done.”
Bellamy is grieving over his loss, but he tries to stay strong for his friends, recognizing that he is now the leader and he needs to do right by them because it’s what Clarke would have done. Bellamy could have easily chosen a path of revenge, but he knows that this is not the right way. The main focus is on surviving, but this is not going to be easy for our favorite characters, especially when new threats keep getting thrown at them. Bellamy breaks the news to Madi about Clarke, which was incredibly heartbreaking and he tries to stay so strong for everyone else around him, but it’s clear that his own grief is consuming him too, making the Bellarke fan in me cry along with him.
All is not lost; however, as we get a twist at the end, revealing that the real Clarke is still alive. She wakes up in a bed and is surrounded by drawings of her friends. Clarke is holding on even in this small corner of Josephine’s mind, revealing that she is not giving up without a fight. I personally can’t wait to see it. Stay tuned!
