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!

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!

My Ship of the week ending 6/29/19 on TV goes to…

John Murphy and Emori on The 100, better known as Memori! The two outsiders on the show who somehow found their way to one another fly under the radar sometimes, but their love is real and inspiring.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  There is just something so incredibly sweet about these two together.  I fell in love with this ship a long time ago on the show and it continues to make me melt.  Murphy has always been the bad boy, but he has the potential to be redeemed by love when he meets Emori.  Emori is not without her faults either, as she has trouble trusting others and both characters were used to putting their own survival ahead of helping others in the past.  However, that starts to change when they meet each other. 

It seems like Emori has made more progress with her moral compass, as our favorite bad boy cannot always be trusted, but there is something magical about these two together.  Even though Murphy can be a bit harsh with others, he wears his heart on his sleeve when it comes to his feelings for Emori.  We’ve been lacking some serious screen time for these two for a while, but I was happy to see some swoon-worthy moments between them in season 6 episode 8.  

Murphy gets down on one knee and asks Emori if she can love him forever.  Even though Murphy is talking about siding with Josephine here and accepting immortality, I can’t skip over the sweetness of this moment.  Emori ultimately has to choose between staying loyal to Murphy and doing the right thing.  Even though she ends up telling Bellamy about John’s plan to get rid of Clarke, she still cares for him so deeply.

Later on, when Josephine stabs Murphy, Emori rushes over to his side and tells him to stay with her.  Through it all, Memori continues to touch my heart and soul.  Even though I was getting some vibes between Murphy and Raven for a while, I think that Memori is end game.  They accept each other for who they are, faults and all.

What’s next for Memori?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but it looks like they are in a lot of trouble.  They are both taken prisoner by the Primes and Murphy’s injury looks pretty bad, so we will have to see if they can survive what happens next.  I’m hoping so, but immortality may be out of reach for Murphy now, but perhaps he can realize that having the woman he loves with him is rewarding enough.  I can’t wait to see what happens next for them!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

Best,

Amy Koto, TV Fanatic Girl

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 8: “Another Episode of No Good Choices”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 8, I learned that sometimes you may love someone too much to lose them, but is it possible to take this too far?  Immortality may seem like the answer, but there are always consequences.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Old Man and the Anomaly,” Diyoza and Octavia continue on their quest to find Gabriel and discover a shocking truth.  Meanwhile, Josephine attempts to eliminate Clarke once and for all, Madi seeks out revenge, and Emori is presented with an impossible choice.  My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 8 are:

5

“We’re gonna get her back.”

In the beginning of the episode, Bellamy lets the rest of the group know that he believes that Clarke is still alive and they try to come up with a plan to get Josephine out of there.  Bellamy recognizes that perhaps they need Raven, but she is a little busy helping Abby right now.  Bellamy seems focused on saving Clarke, but Jordan wants to help his new girlfriend, Delilah, as well.  Only Bellamy recognizes that this may not be possible, but he suggests that they focus on Clarke, even though Madi has other ideas and thinks that they should just kill them all.  It looks like the group is not in full agreement here, but will they be able to work together to save Clarke before it’s too late?

4

“Say hi to Gabriel…”

Hey Gabriel, how are you?  Spoiler alert, Xavier, who has been helping Diyoza and Octavia, is actually Gabriel.  An interesting reveal for sure and it’s clear that he still has feelings for Josephine, but she thinks that he is dead.  So there’s that, but there is also this weird anomaly and some trippy crazy stuff going on.  Gabriel tells them that the anomaly can show you your greatest fears and desires or a combination of both.

Diyoza and Octavia begin hallucinating and Diyoza sees her daughter and ends up walking into some kind of green energy to find her.  Octavia follows her and ends up coming out of the green energy completely healed, but where is Diyoza?  I am still a little fuzzy on all of this anomaly stuff, but hopefully we will get some answers soon.  Either way, I was happy to see that Octavia is all right.  We would be lost without you, Blodreina!

3

“To glory and grace of the Primes…”

We have already seen some signs that Madi is headed to the dark side and is being influenced by the Dark Commander, but she begins to act on these feelings now, taking her revenge on some of the Primes.  After Madi murders two members, Jordan steps in front of her to save Delilah and ends up getting stabbed.  Poor Jordan.  Madi is going down a dark path, but will anyone be able to stop her?  Even after she hears that Clarke is technically still alive, she still wants to kill everyone, but it seems like there are a lot of other things going on at once to focus too much attention on her, but I would like a Madi centric episode soon!  I have to say that Madi makes a terrific bad-ass, but I hope that she doesn’t continue to go down this path of destruction.

2

“So much for forever.”

Murphy approaches Emori during the episode and proposes…only he’s not asking for her hand in marriage just yet.  Murphy tells Emori about achieving immortality and asks her if she can love him forever.  I thought this was a really sweet moment for Memori, but Josephine/Clarke interrupts the love fest, reminding them that they are running out of time to complete the surgery.  You know, because “brain surgery in a machine shop…what can go wrong?”  Emori is clearly conflicted about what to do next since she ultimately has to choose between the man she loves and doing the right thing, but she comes through and tells Bellamy what is going on. 

Josephine/Clarke refuses to go down without a fight and ends up stabbing Murphy in the leg.  Emori and Murphy are taken as prisoners and aren’t talking just yet, but our friend Murphy is no stranger to torture.  Even though Emori has a moral compass, she still loves Murphy with all her heart and begs him to stay with her.  Let’s hope that Murphy will be OK so that he can try and make amends, but can we really trust him anymore?

1

“If you had the chance to bring back someone you love…would you?”

Abby continues to be blinded by love, refusing to give up on Marcus.  I admire their love and devotion so much, but is Abby being selfish here?  Raven tries to talk some sense into her, explaining that she is essentially killing someone else to save Marcus, but Abby will not leave him.  Raven thinks of Abby as a mother and hopes that she can save her, but I am very worried about Abby’s actions.  The switch is successful as a man wakes up as Marcus, but he is shocked when he sees his own lifeless body and asks, “What have you done?” 

I don’t think that Marcus will take this too well and now I’m worried that we won’t see Henry Ian Cusick on the show anymore and he is one of my favorite actors.  I know that anything is possible on this show, but I’m not sure how I feel about someone else  being Marcus.  Either way, it looks like Marcus has a lot to deal with now and many of the other characters have been left with uncertain fates as well.  Murphy and Jordan were both brutally stabbed, Diyoza disappeared into the anomaly, and Josephine is still in Clarke’s body.  How will this all unfold?  Stay tuned!  New episodes return July 9th!

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!

My performance of the week ending 6/15/19 on TV goes to…

Richard Harmon as John Murphy on The 100.  He may fly under the radar sometimes, but one should never underestimate John Murphy, played brilliantly by the charismatic Richard Harmon.  Please note some spoilers are ahead.  Murphy has always been a survivor, but he doesn’t always make the most popular decisions.  We have witnessed a huge character transformation; however, as the selfish and conniving character has truly become an anti-hero that you desperately want to root for. 

Even though Bellamy maintains the moral compass for the group, Murphy is always one step ahead and proves to be smart and strategic with his plans.  You never know what you are going to get with Murphy, as he can easily switch sides, but that’s what makes me love his character.  He’s essentially a con man, but he is so smooth and convincing and he knows how to adapt in every situation, making him one of the most compelling characters on the series for me.

In season 6, Murphy saw something when he died for a few moments, which has clearly made him uneasy.  We still don’t know exactly what he saw, but it has kicked his survival instinct into high gear.  Murphy is never afraid to say what everyone else is thinking and he doesn’t care who he pisses off.  Josephine Lightbourne may think that she has everything under control with her own manipulation, but she should watch out.  Even though she has been around for a very long time, she is no match for John Murphy, who “takes big swings” and plays an impressive game for sure!

What’s next for Murphy? I’m not sure, but it will be interesting to see which side he ends up on.  Murphy seems intrigued by the idea of immortality, but he has gone through so much with Bellamy and the others and I have a hard time believing that he will turn his back on them completely.  Murphy is always a wild card, but he is so entertaining to watch and Richard Harmon’s portrayal of him is incredible.  It’s not always easy playing the bad guy, but he does so with flair and I have been a fan of his since the very first season.  I can’t wait to see what he does next!

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

Best,

Amy Koto, TV Fanatic Girl

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 6: “Tell Me How to Kill Them All”

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:

5

“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.

4

“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.

3

“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 Lightbourne 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.

2

“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!

1

“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!

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 5: “How Would You Like To Be Immortal Too?”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 5, I learned that happiness may look good on Clarke, but Josephine’s presence is beyond dangerous.  Will anyone be able to stop her?  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Gospel of Josephine,” Josephine adjusts to her new body, Clarke, and tries to keep up appearances, which proves to be more difficult than she initially realized.  Meanwhile, Jordan and Gaia look for the truth and Abby desperately tries to find a way to save Marcus.  My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 5 are:

5

“How hard can Clarke be?”

Josephine may have experience acting in plays over the years, but being “Clarke” proves to be more difficult than she realized.  While Josephine embraces her new body, she realizes that fooling Clarke’s friends and family will not be easy.  Josephine quickly learns that they speak in another language and she immediately begins making mistakes when she tells Madi that she can go to school after she was so against it before.  Bellamy comments that happiness looks good on her, but what’s lurking beneath Clarke’s body is manipulative and dangerous.  Watch out, Bellamy!

4

“They worship Nightbloods.  I’d like to know why.”

Jordan and Gaia seek out answers after “Priya” doesn’t remember who Jordan is.  Jordan refuses to just accept this even though Bellamy and Murphy initially don’t have his back, assuming that it was a one night stand and Jordan is too naive to realize.  Later on, Clarke/Josephine, Bellamy, and Murphy join Gaia and Jordan and discover some kind of room celebrating the dead and find the mark of the flame.  Gaia initially thinks that the skeletons all belong to past commanders, but we quickly learn that they are something else.  But if they aren’t commanders, “what the hell are they?” 

A good question for sure, as the group comes across a video showing the murder of a Nightblood host, realizing that “becoming one with the Primes” can lead to immortality.  Clarke/Josephine tries to put a positive spin on things, but Gaia unintentionally spills the beans about Madi being a Nightblood and Josephine also learns that Abby was able to synthesize Nightblood, turning Clarke into one with science, which definitely gets her full attention.  The secrets are unraveling, but no one seems to realize that Clarke is not Clarke just yet.

3

“It’s because he’s good and true and deserves to live.”

Abby finally gets some more screen time in this episode, as she continues to work on finding a way to save Marcus.  Clarke/Josephine gives her a few ideas that actually seem quite helpful, but as soon as Josephine realizes that Abby can make a Nightblood, it’s clear that she may be in great danger.  Abby has an emotional breakdown at one point and talks about how Marcus deserves to live because he did the right thing when she made so many horrible decisions during the time of Blodreina. 

Abby’s guilt is clearly catching up to her now and she has traded one addiction for another.  While it’s possible that she may have kicked her drug addiction, she is spending every possible moment trying to save Marcus, but will she be able to without further consequences?  We’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but I’m feeling some Marcus withdrawal myself.  Bring him back already!

“I guess you want to live after all.”

Meanwhile, while all of the Invasion of the Body Snatchers drama is going on, Octavia and Diyoza continue to get into trouble together while trying to track down Gabriel.  Octavia and Diyoza get stuck in some kind of deadly swamp quick sand and apparently “the harder you fight, the faster you die.”  Diyoza stands still, but Octavia continues to stubbornly struggle, which makes her sink that much faster.  Another dangerous threat comes their way, as some kind of flash of light appears that could be fatal.  Diyoza escapes and Octavia hides underneath the quick sand to protect herself, but comes very close to death.

Luckily, Diyoza comes back for her and gets her out of there and tells her that perhaps she wants to live after all.  I’m loving this partnership between these two and I think that they can learn a lot from each other.  After all, Diyoza reminded Octavia that “you can always turn it around” while you are still breathing and perhaps these two can be redeemed.  Either way, I’m rooting for them!

“I’m listening…”

Bellamy finally begins to detect that something is wrong with Clarke and approaches her, speaking in the Grounder language to prove his suspicions.  He asks Clarke who she is and she introduces herself as Josephine Lightbourne.  Let’s hope that Bellamy will be OK and can warn the others  before it’s too late.  However, Clarke/Josephine is already recruiting for her plan, as she approaches Murphy and asks him if he would like to be immortal, revealing that Clarke is dead.  Murphy tells her that he’s listening, but is he just trying to get close to Josephine to help his friends or is Murphy looking out for his own survival? 

Murphy has come so far as a character, but we know that he has his share of faults.  I’m interested to see this unlikely partnership develop more and I hope there is a way to bring our girl Clarke back, but it doesn’t look like Josephine will leave without a fight.  New episodes return June 11th!  Stay tuned!
