Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 13: “Blood Giant”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 13, I am left in complete shock. We learned that “the path of the prophet is always hard,” but wow…seriously I still haven’t even dealt with what I just watched.

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

In episode 13, “Blood Giant,” Clarke realizes that she has walked into quite the mess, but the Disciples are only interested in obtaining the key. Meanwhile, we get some character reunions, a timely release of the killer bug toxin, and a shocking demise that I never saw coming.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 13 are:

“Here’s my proposal…”

Bill and The Disciples don’t want to be bothered with whatever primitive nonsense Sheidheda is leading and they make a proposal. Bill wants to go on his way and get the hell off his planet, explaining that Sheidheda can then do whatever he wants.

To show he means business, his invisible guards easily take out Sheidheda’s men and wound him, reminding us who the bigger threat is here.

We also finally get a mention of Gaia, as everyone knows that she is not where she is supposed to be. I guess we’ll catch up with her soon, but at least everyone is on the same page now.

I don’t know who comes up with the timing on this show, but while everything is going on, the toxins and killer bugs are also released with the red sun. Remember that? The bugs try to eat your face and the toxins cause our characters to see deadly hallucinations.

Luckily Emori comes up with a plan to keep the bugs out and has really stepped up as a hero. Just think about how far her character has come. The selfish cutthroat is now a leader and a really good one. Plus, she’s just so incredibly cute with Murphy!

Maybe at least we will get one happy ending for one of our ships…

“It’s good to be back.”

Josephine is back. Well, sort of. As the toxins leak into the air, Gabriel gets infected and begins having hallucinations of Josephine. She tries to talk him into volunteering as tribute to be the one to “save the world,” but he has a change of heart at the last second and destroys the flame.

See ya, Josephine!

“You live with what you’ve done.”

We get several character reunions during this episode. Clarke is reunited with Madi and Raven and Murphy manage to make us laugh quite a few times to give us some nostalgia. However, I kept getting the feeling that a main character was about to die and it seemed like all signs were pointing to Raven.

As Raven enters the reactor, her guilt and remorse eat away at her. Nikki shows up and threatens to kill her, but Raven admits that what she did was wrong and tells her she understands.

However, Nikki decides to actually let Raven live, which really threw me for a loop. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore Raven Reyes, but I thought she was the character to go.

In order for The 100 to truly reach its peak as we approach the series finale in a few episodes, someone has to go.

So if not Raven, then who?

Even Indra gets her shot at ending Sheidheda’s life and decides to let him just bleed out, refusing to waste any more time on him.

And here we go…

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD…

“I said I wouldn’t lose anyone else…”

After the flame is destroyed, the anomaly is opened by Bill and Clarke demands that he take them to their missing friends. Bill agrees, but Bellamy is still heartbroken after losing his Disciple friend.

He tries to tell Clarke that he has been trying to save them all, but she doesn’t want to hear it and tells him, “so much for together.”

Sheidheda continues to be the worm that he is and points Bellamy to the book that would expose Madi. We know that Clarke will do anything to protect her daughter, but Bellamy tries to reason with her.

In a completely shocking and heartbreaking moment, Clarke tells Bellamy she is sorry too and shoots and kills Bellamy.

We get a final shot of his lifeless body to confirm that Bellamy Blake is actually dead this time.

There’s no question about it, Bellamy Blake is dead. He is the main character to go, but I have a lot of mixed feelings on this one.

First off, why did we waste so much time on thinking he was dead to find out that he was actually alive for us to get to this moment? It really angered me.

Not only will I not get the Bellarke moment I have been dreaming of, but now even the idea of Bellarke has been shattered.

Lexa was shot and now Bellamy was shot. There is some poetry here for sure.

I guess I want to see what the point of this was. Has Clarke actually achieved what Bellamy was trying to do? Perhaps Clarke has been the prophet this entire time and did what was necessary to protect what she believes in, which Bellamy had been struggling with for the past few episodes.

This just proves more and more that Clarke is the ultimate key and I have to imagine that she will be the one to step up to the test for all of humanity.

May we meet again.

Rest in peace, Bellamy Blake. My soul is shattered.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 6 episode 4: “Now This I Can Work With”

Happy Wednesday TV fans!  After watching the CW’s The 100 season 6 episode 4, Diyoza reminded us that one must learn to “improvise, adapt, and overcome” in order to survive, but I’m not sure our characters are truly prepared for the secrets of Sanctum.  Let’s just hope they figure it out before it’s too late.  Please note spoilers are ahead if you have not gotten a chance to watch the latest episode yet.  In last night’s episode, “The Face Behind the Glass,” it’s Naming Day at Sanctum, which we learn is a day of recognizing past sins and also celebrating, but the Primes certainly have a lot more in store.  Meanwhile, Diyoza and Octavia try to help Rose, as the Children of Gabriel continue to be a possible threat, but there are two sides to every story.  My top 5 moments from The 100 season 6 episode 4 are:

5

“Don’t let me be a face behind the glass.”

It’s Naming Day on Sanctum and everyone seems to be in high spirits, as Clarke and the others witness and participate in the rituals, which include placing past sins in floating lanterns, reciting the four pillars of Sanctum:  Repent, Renew, Rejoice, Rebirth, and celebrating with a rave…because that makes sense.  It seems like things are a little too good to be true here and my instincts were right.

Jordan seals the deal with Delilah and opens up to her about what he went through growing up and how it felt like he became a face behind the glass when he entered into Cryosleep.  Right before Delilah goes to accept her fate for Naming Day, she runs back to Jordan and begs him not to let her become a face behind the glass, revealing that something big is about to happen here.  When Delilah emerges, she no longer recognizes Jordan and she is now referred to as “Priya.”

“Your problem isn’t making amends…”

Clarke seems to really pay attention when Naming Day talks about the importance of making amends.  Clarke certainly has a lot to make up for and she tries to start with Raven…only Raven doesn’t want to hear it.  Clarke brings up Shaw and Raven tells her, “Keep him out of it,” as she is still clearly heartbroken over his death and rightfully so.  Raven compares Clarke to Octavia and tells her, “The only difference between you and her is Octavia doesn’t pretend to be sorry about it.”  Raven clearly feels betrayed and hurt by Clarke, but she does make a valid point here.  Is it too late for amends or will Clarke be able to finally make things right?  It looks like she may not get that chance now, however.

“The devils of earth become the heroes of sanctum…”

After Diyoza is essentially banished from Sanctum, Rose’s bodyguard approaches her and tells her that if she can retrieve Rose, her baby will be able to live in Sanctum.  Diyoza puts the needs of her child first and accepts, even though she would not be able to stay with her child.  Meanwhile, Octavia is being held captive by the Children of Gabriel with Rose and tries to help her too.  Unfortunately Rose is killed in the crossfire, as Diyoza and Octavia now cross paths.

Rose’s bodyguard is beyond heartbroken by the unnecessary death of a child and she tells Diyoza that if she is able to take down Gabriel, the deal will still be honored.  It looks like this is the start of a “beautiful friendship,” as Octavia agrees to partner up with Diyoza.  I have to say that I absolutely love this partnership, as these are two bad-ass women you do not want to mess with.  But are they really choosing the right side?  Either way, I can’t wait to see what they do next together.

2

“You are my family too.”

Bellarke fans get another big moment between Clarke and Bellamy, as Clarke decides to see if Bellamy is more receptive to her apology than Raven.  Clarke is genuine in her apology and Bellamy understands, knowing what it’s like to do anything to protect one person who is your family.  Clarke reminds Bellamy that he is her family too and she promises that she will never forget it again.  I thought there might be a chance here for a potential spark especially when Bellamy and Echo clash, but Echo opens up about having to fight for survival for all her life and Becho is still going strong…for now.  Either way, I thought this was an important moment for Bellarke and if anyone can bring Clarke back, it’s Bellamy or Madi.

1

“You’re giving us such a gift, Clarke.”

After Clarke has a passionate moment with Cillian, this moment is put on hold, as he reveals that he is a spy for the Children of Gabriel.  He uses the paralytic dart on Clarke so he can get her out of there, trying to tell her that she is in more danger where she is because of her Nightblood, or “black blood,” as they refer to it here on Sanctum.  The guards detect what is going on and Cillian slits his own throat to avoid being taken, which seems extreme, but clearly there is a lot of history here.  Clarke is brought before the Lightbournes and Russell realizes that they have the chance to bring their daughter, Josephine back now, realizing that there may be no other option since Rose is gone, who was another Nightblood.

Russell promises Clarke that there will be no pain and that she is essentially sacrificing her body so someone else can live.  The essence of Josephine is placed behind Clarke’s head and when she wakes up, Clarke appears to be gone and only Josephine remains, who seems happy with her new reflection and host.  It seems like the Primes are obsessed with maintaining immortality, which means that Madi is also in danger.  However, is Clarke now gone forever or is there a way to free her?  Let’s hope so because I can’t process a world without Clarke Griffin.  Stay tuned!
