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:

5

“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!

4

“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.

3

“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.

2

“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…

1

“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!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 5: “Welcome to Bardo”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 5, I was reminded that sometimes you have to decide what’s more important: the individual or the collective? But when that individual is your whole world, the choice is not always so clear cut.

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

In last night’s episode, “Welcome to Bardo,” Octavia undergoes trials that explore all of her memories. Meanwhile, we meet the leader of the Disciples, Indra discovers a shocking secret, and Murphy embraces his heroic side for the good of Sanctum.

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

5

“For the glory and the grace of the Primes.”

If you thought the chants were over, you were wrong. Even though Russell Prime’s life has been spared, his followers now want him to be released, but Indra stands her ground. His followers threaten to sacrifice one life per hour until he is released, which makes their blind faith extremely dangerous.

It looks like Indra has her hands full here now that Clarke is gone…

4

“I am getting tired of being the hero.”

Indra realizes that another Prime needs to speak up before more lives are lost and Murphy is up for the challenge since Emori is still recovering from radiation exposure. I still have some questions about why Murphy is perfectly fine and Emori is not, but I’m assuming we will explore that in another episode. Hold your breath Memori fans!

Even though Murphy doesn’t really like to be the hero, we can’t ignore his incredible path toward redemption and then some. This cockroach has become someone the others can truly count on and he still remains as one of my absolute favorite characters on the show.

After Murphy discovers that they are planning to sacrifice a child, he loses his cool and ends up being help captive, as his identity is threatened, but it looks like he has sparked something within the people of Sanctum.

3

“I’ve heard that before…”

Later on, Russell Prime emerges to talk some sense into his people and releases Murphy. He tells his followers to “kneel or die,” but Indra has heard that before, recognizing him as Sheidheda.

Russell (Sheidheda) reminds Indra that she can’t kill him, but I have a feeling that Indra will be the one to destroy him in the end. For her family and for the good of Sanctum. Go Indra!

2

“Your heart is pure.”

The time jumps continue in this episode as we finally start to piece together what happened to Octavia. Octavia is taken away as Diyoza screams for her not to tell them anything. She undergoes these mind trials that look deep into her memories and we see flashes of Lincoln, Clarke, Bellamy, and Pike.

The Disciple administering the tests is named Levitt and he starts to truly admire Octavia. He reminds her that she’s not just a killer and that she is a warrior with a pure heart. I definitely felt some kind of vibe here and Levitt hopes that they can meet again, as he does everything he can to help Octavia and Hope.

We learn that in order for him to send them both through the bridge, memories will be gone and a tattoo with the code is placed on Octavia’s back, filling in some of those gaps from The Anomaly time.

We meet the leader of The Disciples, Anders, (played by Neal McDonough) and he explains that Clarke is the key and they are trying to unlock these secrets through Octavia, but why is Clarke so important?

The 100 7 5 The CW 3

I’m dying to find out more about this, but throughout Octavia’s mental journey, it’s clear that her constant has always been Bellamy.

Speaking of Bellamy…

1

“I can’t let you die to save me.”

We finally see Bellamy in this episode as Anders has him brought out to Octavia. Bellamy has been busy eliminating his men and it’s not easy reasoning with him, but Octavia tries to talk him down and tells him to go through the bridge, promising to tell Anders whatever he wants to know about Clarke.

During all of the commotion, there is an explosion and it is implied that Bellamy has been killed. Echo unlocks this memory in present time and is beyond heartbroken and furious, killing off their only lead to finding Diyoza.

So, has Bellamy’s fate just been determined? Did we just kill off the heart of the show?

The 100 7 5 The CW 4
Images courtesy of The CW

I’m thinking no, since we didn’t actually see his body. We’ll have to see how this unfolds, but it looks like this story-line will be put on pause since we are catching up with Clarke and the gang in the next episode.

Perhaps Bellamy was transported from the blast to this other planet? Maybe he can save the day?

The theories are endless, but I am remaining positive that Bellamy Blake is alive and well. Let’s just hope we don’t have to wait too long to confirm his fate.

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 4: “Hesperides”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 4, I was reminded that fear is a factor, but you have to find a way to fight through it. 

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

In last night’s episode, “Hesperides,” Clarke and the others work together to figure out a way to save Bellamy, Octavia, and Echo from The Anomaly. Meanwhile, Raven attempts to cope with the blood on her hands and Echo makes a heartbreaking decision.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 4 are:

5

“Trust me. I’ve done this before.”

In the beginning of the episode, we see things from Hope’s perspective after losing both her mother, Diyoza, and Octavia. A stranger arrives near her home named Dev, but Hope initially wants nothing to do with him.

As the years go by, they continue to get closer and he teaches Hope how to fight, but his life is lost when The Anomaly opens up after Hope hesitates before killing a Disciple. It’s clear that Dev and Hope were like family to one another and perhaps something even more, but I thought this glimpse into the past really allowed us to learn more about Hope’s character.

Echo and Gabriel are looking for a way out of The Anomaly, but Hope reminds them that she’s done this before and that they will need to wait five years. Easier said than done…

4

“I can’t forget their faces.”

Meanwhile, Raven is clearly having a tough time dealing with the fresh blood on her hands after that insane radiation dilemma. Clarke reminds her not to forget about the faces she saved, but Raven has even more trouble when she has to take out some of The Disciples later on to help her friends.

The 100 7 4 2 The CW

We know that Raven has been through a lot over the seasons, but her moral compass is wavering back and forth now. Let’s just hope that she can get through this because we need her!

3

“Every second counts.”

Well, it pretty much always does on this show, but we start to actually connect our story-lines between Sanctum and The Anomaly, which is a good thing. But where the hell is Bellamy?

We find out that The Disciples want Clarke and that she is the key to stopping a war, but is she just a target?

The 100 7 4 3 The CW

Clarke is ready to sacrifice herself if needed to help her friends, but Raven discovers that The Anomaly is actually a wormhole and that they can travel to different planets with it.

2

“Plans change.”

Meanwhile, in The Anomaly, time flies by as Echo, Hope, and Gabriel work together with Disciple, Orlando, to prepare for when The Anomaly opens again. Orlando is not one of their people, but a bond forms between them all and it looks like we are witnessing a new type of family. Even Echo lets her walls down and we get to witness some bad-ass hair cuts and decorative face tattoos for the occasion.

When The Anomaly opens again, Hope doesn’t hesitate this time and ends up taking out a Disciple as Orlando screams. Echo realizes that Orlando is not one of them and will do whatever it takes to save Bellamy.

This apparently includes killing every last Disciple in front of Orlando and leaving him behind. Gabriel and Hope think that this is wrong, but Echo asks them if they want to stay or find answers.

They reluctantly follow as Orlando is betrayed by them. We know that Echo is no stranger to doing the unthinkable, but she has come so far as a character and has now gone down a familiar role of betrayal.

Will Bellamy be able to forgive her when he finds out what she has done? Will she be able to forgive herself?

The 100 7 4 4 The CW

My heart goes out to Echo and I have really started to fall in love with her character, but she is going down a dark road now and I’m not sure that she will be able to come back from it. Either way, this episode stirred a lot of emotions and we are only on episode 4 of the final season.

1

“Who wants to go for a ride?”

The Clarke we know and love is back. She’s ready to go off into the unknown to risk it all to save her friends. There she is! I’ve been waiting for Clarke to go back to her roots for the final season and it looks like we are all in for a ride.

Clarke gives everyone a choice when they open up The Anomaly and Gaia says that she will stay behind to protect Madi. Raven randomly picks a planet, hoping that they will find their friends, but we know the odds aren’t that great.

They can always find a way back…right?

Well, that may not be so easy as someone shuts down The Anomaly and attacks Gaia. Of course this happens right after a lingering goodbye between her and Clarke to make us suffer even more! Both of them are sucked into The Anomaly and now Clarke and the others are stuck on some unknown planet with no way out…

This should be interesting!

This was an emotional episode, but I’m really happy that we are finally connecting the story-lines because it was getting a little exhausting jumping back and forth between them each episode.

Let’s hope that we can catch up with Bellamy so that he can jump in to help save the day because it looks like our characters need him.

In other news, we know it’s only a matter of time before Sheidheda makes his next move as well.

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.

The 100 7 2 2 The CW
Images courtesy of The CW

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!
