Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 16: “The Last War”

Happy Sunday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 16 series finale, I remembered that “whatever happens next, we stick together.”

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

In episode 16, “The Last War,” Clarke steps up to take the test for all of humanity, but is she really the right choice? Meanwhile, a distraction quickly becomes a war while Emori tries to hold on.

The end is here and I have mixed thoughts on the series finale, but I will forever love this show.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 16 series finale are:

5

“Just save her.”

The beginning of the episode brings us right back in where we left off. Murphy, Jackson, and Raven attempt to save Emori’s life. Unfortunately she doesn’t make it and Murphy’s reaction completely shattered my heart.

Murphy demands that they put Emori’s mind space into his own head so that he can see her again, but we know that only one mind can survive…

Seriously, Memori too? I am still in tears.

Emori tells Murphy that he can’t do this and wants him to wake up, but Murphy tells her that a few more hours with her is worth more than spending forever without her.

“You don’t know my pain.”

After Bill initiates the test, the higher being comes to him in the form of his daughter, which gave us some intense foreshadowing for sure. Clarke arrives and kills Bill, but it does not stop the test.

Instead, she has to now face it and her guide is…Lexa! Yep, that’s right. The return of Lexa is finally upon us. Clarke embraces her immediately even though she understands that it is not her, but I did shed quite a few tears. Clexa still gives me chills.

Clarke challenges the higher being again and again, but she fails the test for all of humanity.

3

“Yours is an interesting choice.”

Clarke accepts defeat and tells Raven that she wants to be with Madi. I’ve always said that if there is anyone I completely trust to save me, it’s Raven Reyes and she taps into the test as well to try her luck.

Raven comes face to face with Abby, which gave us a chance to say hello to another beloved character. Raven always thought of Abby as her own mother and they had one of the most complicated and real relationships on the show.

Raven is told that the test is over and that humanity has failed, but she tries to get the higher being to change her mind, asking her for the chance to do better and live.

2

“The only way to win is not to fight.”

The higher being tries to show Raven that her people are already at war, proving her point that they are not ready for transcendence. Sheidheda shows up with bad timing to inspire violence, but Indra gets rid of him pretty quickly. It’s about time…

Meanwhile, Levitt tries to get everyone to stop fighting and is shot, as Octavia rushes over to save him. The character growth that we have been witnessing for seven years illuminates before us as Octavia stands before everyone and tells them not to fight.

She explains that, “We are mankind. We are Wonkru…our fight is over.” Bellamy would be proud.

The higher being is surprised when everyone actually stops fighting. But instead of giving them all a chance to live like Raven requested, she decides to let them transcend anyway…

We’ll get to that later.

1

“A curious species indeed.”

Transcendence begins and everyone starts turning into little glowy balls of energy. We know that the dead cannot transcend which means that we will not see Bellamy, but this does save Memori, Echo, and Levitt so there’s that.

Clarke says goodbye to Madi and she is able to transcend as well, but she is left alone.

Luckily Clarke has the dog to keep her company, but when he rushes off, she screams out that she doesn’t want to be alone.

Clarke failed the test, but also committed murder during it, which means that she is not able to transcend with the rest of humanity. Clarke has always been the one to bear the burden so that her friends don’t have to, but this is to the extreme.

The higher being appears to her again as Lexa and explains that “transcendence is a choice.” Her friends have chosen to return to stay with her even though they will  be giving up their chance at ultimate transcendence, reinforcing the “live together, die alone” motto from LOST.

Clarke embraces her friends and we are left with an uplifting soundtrack to end the series.

I’m glad that Clarke is with her friends again, but I have several issues with the series finale. I hate that we never got the chance to witness a Bellarke moment and I’m not really sure why everyone got to transcend.

Wouldn’t it have made more sense to actually grant Raven’s request for them all to live? I mean, I guess Memori and the others wouldn’t be saved if we went down that route, but it just seemed like a cop out to me.

I love this series and it’s one that I plan to go back and re-watch again, but I guess I wanted something more from the finale.

Either way, the journey is over…May We Meet Again.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 15: “The Dying of the Light”

Happy Saturday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 15, I learned that “war is a failure of everything,” but is there a difference between a war and a test? We’re coming to the end now, but who will make it out alive?

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

In episode 15, “The Dying of the Light,” Clarke teams up with Octavia to rescue Madi. Meanwhile, Murphy and Raven work together to try and save Emori.

Another emotional episode that still has me in tears…

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 15 are:

5

“Let’s do it.”

The 100 season 7 episode 15 Octavia and Clarke 1

Images courtesy of The CW

Clarke and Octavia don’t waste any time after Madi willingly transports herself to the Disciples. I have always liked the Clarke and Octavia duo, but this might be their toughest challenge yet.

They have both faced so much and yet they are still being tested again and again.

I still feel like Clarke will be the one to take the final test for humanity, but one should never discount Octavia Blake, who has one of the most developed and interesting character arcs I have ever witnessed on a show.

4

“Everyone I love dies.”

Literally everyone featured in this episode takes a few minutes to reflect on how many loved ones they have lost. Clarke reveals that if she loses Madi, she will have nothing and be nothing.

Clarke has always risked it all to save everyone else, but what happens when she has nothing left to live for?

Is it possible for the test to reset everything or is everything final? We’ll have to wait and see, but I have to imagine that there is some kind of happy ending waiting for Clarke Griffin.

She deserves it after all she has been through…

3

“We need a distraction.”

Sheidheda is finally put to good use when Clarke and Octavia arrive. They recognize that they can’t rush in to save Madi with guns blazing and make a deal with Sheidheda. Sheidheda releases some of his fury on the Disciples and shows off just how terrifying and ruthless he can be.

He has made an exit for now, but it’s only a matter of time before he shows up again to create some more drama.

2

“You choose everyone.”

The 100 season 7 episode 15 Raven

After the explosion, Memori gets pinned under some rubble and has a wound that is bleeding out quickly. Murphy and Raven work with Jackson to save Emori’s life, but she is running out of time.

Memori has some heartwarming words that really got to me. I seriously cannot handle another loss like this as I am still not fully recovered over what happened to Bellamy.

Raven’s friendship with both Murphy and Emori is so beautiful and she does everything in her power to get her friend back to Sanctum so Jackson can operate on her. However, Emori tells Raven to choose everyone, recognizing that Murphy will not be able to make the difficult choice.

Raven convinces her that she can save her and the rest of the world and if there is anyone I am putting my faith in…it’s Raven Reyes.

Hang on Emori!

1

“I’m right here.”

After Madi’s valiant attempt to deal with Bill’s memory machine, she suffers from a massive stroke and is essentially brain dead. Octavia and a heartbroken Clarke find her. She is breathing, but Levitt says that it is not recoverable.

Octavia refuses to let Clarke live with this and tells her that she will be the one to end Madi’s life. She reminds Clarke that Madi can hear her, as Clarke sings to her.

Before Octavia can pull the trigger, Levitt explains that Bill retrieved the memory he needed and Clarke realizes that she cannot let Bill be the one to take the test for all of humanity.

She promises Madi that she will make this right and be back for her, as the episode ends with Madi shedding a single tear that had me sobbing uncontrollably.

Seriously, I don’t know if I can handle any more heartbreak on this show. 

One more episode left.

How will it end?

May we meet again…

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 14: “A Sort of Homecoming”

Happy Saturday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 14, I learned that sometimes you are meant to wind up exactly where you started. So, do you take the fresh start or head back into the heart of unknown destruction?

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

In episode 14, “A Sort of Homecoming,” Clarke and the others are reunited back on Earth, but not everyone is ready to leave the people of Sanctum behind. Meanwhile, Sheidheda strikes a deal with Bill that endangers Madi and everyone attempts to cope with an unspeakable loss.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 14 are:

5

“I killed him…I had to.”

Clarke doesn’t hold anything back and immediately tells the others that she killed Bellamy. Octavia and Echo tell her that they understand, recognizing that the Bellamy they knew and loved was gone and that the true Bellamy would understand. There is a lot of coping going on in this episode as each character deals with this loss in their own way.

I have to admit that I even shed a tear when we saw Murphy crying, which was extremely emotional for me.

4

“Welcome home.”

When one door closes, another one opens. At least we finally find out where Gaia is and learn that she is alive and well. Phew!

Gaia fills us in on what we’ve missed and everyone is reunited…at least for now.

3

“We were all Blodreina.”

Being back on Earth proves to be difficult for Octavia. Many of her memories come rushing back from her time as Blodreina and we even see a flashback of Kane. Indra reminds Octavia that they were all Blodreina and explains that they will face her demons together, which was a nice sentiment.

2

“I decided for everyone. That’s what I do.”

Madi is upset with Clarke for killing Bellamy to protect her and Clarke breaks down to her and tries to explain that this is what she does. This is not the first time we have seen Clarke carry the weight of the world on her shoulders to protect her friends.

The 100 7 14 Clarke The CW

Images courtesy of The CW

She makes the hard decisions so that they don’t have to, but this was probably the most difficult one of her life. 

That being said, let’s hope it was worth it…

1

“No one else is dying to save me.”

After making a deal with Bill, Sheidheda is somehow still OK to continue to annoy us and goes after Madi, revealing what he knows about her memories. Clarke realizes that she is in danger, desperately trying to find her before it is too late.

Madi is actually taking a minute to enjoy herself, learning piano from Gabriel, which was a sweet moment.

The 100 7 14 Gabriel and Madi The CW

Images courtesy of The CW

Unfortunately the moment is short-lived, as Gabriel is stabbed by invisible Sheidheda. Gabriel dies trying to save Madi and Sheidheda manages to go through the anomaly after getting quite the beat down from the incredible Indra and Gaia tag team.

Madi refuses to let anyone else die because of her and uses the knife to transport herself to Bill before Clarke can stop her. Then, we get more visitors and some kind of cave-in like explosion that could potentially trap or endanger Memori…don’t even get me started on that.

We know that Clarke has always been trying to protect her daughter, but Madi is capable of true leadership and strength and perhaps Clarke needs to have faith in her.

Only two episodes left!

May we meet again.

Rest in peace, Gabriel.

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 11: “What happened to Bellamy?”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After finally watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 11, we were left with an important dilemma: “all alive, but just out of reach…” Sometimes we need to channel a strength we never even knew existed to survive, but do we lose everyone we love in the process?

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

In episode 11, “Etherea,” we finally find out exactly what happened to Bellamy. Bellamy is back and it’s about time. Meanwhile, Clarke decides what to do next to help save her friends.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 11 are:

5

“No one is coming to save us…”

Even though Levitt has now discovered that Bellamy is in fact alive, he is a little bit out of reach. Good thing Bellamy Blake always has a plan. When Bellamy gets blasted by the anomaly, he winds up in Etherea with the Disciple control room conductor. Bellamy is forced to work with his enemy in order to find a way off this planet, but working together may not be so easy…

Either way…Bellamy Blake is alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4

“It doesn’t bring peace.”

Bellamy brushes up on his reading since there is a lot of time to pass and learns a lot about the Disciples and their beliefs. He thinks that the Cave of Ascent is far-fetched, but his enemy continues to enlighten him, explaining that they both have a purpose that is bigger than them.

Bellamy doesn’t think that one can achieve transcendence through war, but he certainly has a lot to think about.

3

“Love is not the problem. It’s how you love that is.”

Bellamy continues to hold on to his love for his family and friends, but he is warned that this is selfish love and that the Disciples love all mankind and do what is necessary for the good of the many.

We get several hints about a “leap of faith” along the way and after Bellamy is saved from the brutal storm by his enemy, they actually find the “Cave of Ascent.” Bellamy finally lets his guard down and prays with his enemy and ends up seeing his mother, who acts as a guide for him during this other state of mind or hallucination.

2

“This is our only chance…”

I almost felt like I was re-watching Game of Thrones with Jon Snow climbing the wall. This episode brought back all those feels, as Bellamy and the Disciple embark on a dangerous journey of their own up the wall.

The 100 7 11 3
Images courtesy of The CW

I have to admit I was on the edge of my seat for this one as well. When Bellamy gets to the top, they are able to access the anomaly, but have to literally take a leap of faith to reach the bridge.

And of course, we have Bill waiting for him on the other side…

1

“Bellamy?”

So, we welcome back Bellamy and he immediately kneels to Bill. I was hoping that this would just be another long con (taking a play out of Echo’s book), but now I’m not so sure.

At the very end of the episode, Bellamy is reunited with his friends and we focus in on Octavia, Echo, and Clarke, who are beyond shocked to see him.

We get a small Bellarke moment, as Clarke rushes over to hug him, whispering that she no longer has the flame (the key) and that they’ll figure something out.

However, Bellamy turns around and betrays her, revealing exactly what she said to Bill.

The 100 7 11 4
Images courtesy of The CW

So, has Bellamy truly become a believer or not? In the beginning of this post, I mentioned that Bellamy always has a plan so I’d like to believe that there is a way out of this, but he also went through some crazy near death trippy stuff during his journey.

Maybe, it’s going to take family to bring him back since the hallucination of his mother lured him into this mess.

Octavia, you’re up!

I thought this episode was so incredibly well done and we finally got to confirm that Bellamy is actually alive. Now, we need to do something about him being brainwashed…

Bellarke fans, let’s hope that we can get more than an embrace…soon! We’re running out of time!

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

Ranking the top 5 moments from “The 100” season 7 episode 7: “The Queen’s Gambit”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 7, I realized that “everybody has their weaknesses,” but sometimes we can turn our weakness into our strength.

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

In last night’s episode, “The Queen’s Gambit,” Murphy agrees to a dangerous chess game with Sheidheda. Meanwhile, Emori attempts to maintain order in Sanctum, Echo has trouble dealing with her grief, and Madi just wants to play soccer.

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

5

“She’s the key to everything…”

The 100 7 7 1 The CW

OK, we get it. Clarke is the key. But why is she the key? After Gabriel is captured and brought to Anders, he learns that they need his help. In order for the true power of the stones to be unlocked, we need the key, but we still don’t know why Clarke is that key.

Gabriel agrees to help, but I’m curious to know more. We get this big talk about transcendence, which makes me wonder if Clarke is basically the key to the entire universe?

4

“How much do you want to know?”

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

Diyoza is more than thrilled to be reunited with her daughter, Hope, but she also doesn’t want her to follow in her footsteps. I think it’s safe to say that Hope did the right thing by training to fight, but I’m not sure she’s ready to truly face off against her bad-ass mother.

Hope learns a little bit more about her mother’s past and her father, but it’s clear that she is still trying to form some kind of identity. Let’s just hope this reunion isn’t short lived…

3

“It’s not your fault.”

The 100 7 7 3 The CW
Images courtesy of The CW

I’ll take a Bellamy flashback until we get some real confirmation on his actual fate. I still don’t want to believe that our beloved character is dead, but it’s safe to say that Echo is not handling this well and I can’t say that I really blame her.

During the flashback, Bellamy reminds Echo that they are a team and talks to her about loyalty. Echo says that loyalty can’t be a weakness, but perhaps there is a lesson in here somewhere for her. Oh and we get a steamy Becho kiss in there…

In present day, Octavia tries to get through to Echo, understanding what she is going through, but Echo uses pain and anger to fight through. She slices her own face and is ready to fight, but is she going down a dangerous path?

2

“I know what it’s like to be thrown out like garbage.”

The 100 7 7 4 The CW

Meanwhile, Emori finally gets her moment in the spotlight. She has the chance to host a gathering that will bring the people of Sanctum together, but this is easier said than done. Emori is getting used to her new life, but she also remembers where she came from.

However, Emori’s plan goes south when Nikki crashes the party. There’s a new group taking over Sanctum and it looks like Emori is in some serious trouble now.

1

“Your move…”

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

The most interesting part of the episode was the chess showdown between Sheidheda (Russell Prime) and our very own cockroach, John Murphy. Murphy is up for the challenge, but the stakes are high and he knows that people will die if he loses.

There is this manipulative long con going on between the two of these characters and we finally see just what Sheidheda is capable of. We get a shout-out to Lexa, as Murphy brings her up to get under Sheidheda’s skin and we know that she is the one and true Commander!

Sheidheda talks a lot about survival, but he also brings up Murphy’s feelings for Emori. Murphy has always been one of my favorite characters on the show and part of that is because he really plays the jaded anti-hero so well. He makes the wrong decisions sometimes, but his love for Emori has really helped him became a hero.

We soon discover that Sheidheda was merely using Murphy to stall so that violence could erupt during Emori’s gathering. Murphy may have lost the match, but Sheidheda shouldn’t underestimate him.

Once again, this was another fantastic episode. At the very end, Clarke and the others arrive and meet up with Octavia and the characters being held captive. Clarke is exactly where Anders wants her to be and he wakes up…Bill. Remember him? He was the leader of the Second Dawn cult and knew Becca.

It looks like we’ll catch up with all of that in next week’s flashback episode.

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.

The 100 7 5 The CW 2
Images courtesy of The CW

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
Images courtesy of The CW

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…

“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.

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!

“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?

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?

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 3: “False Gods”

Happy Thursday TV fans! After watching The CW’s The 100 season 7 episode 3, I was reminded that “wanting to die and facing it are two different things.” 

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

In last night’s episode, “False Gods,” Raven makes a tough decision for the good of Sanctum, but has she crossed a line in doing so? Meanwhile, Clarke deals with her own actions and Wonkru learns the truth about Madi.

My top 5 moments from The 100 season 7 episode 3 are:

5

“Either we live together or die apart.”

I don’t know about you, but I found myself repeating Jack Shephard’s infamous line from LOST: “Live together, die alone,” but I suppose Russell Prime (Sheiheda) changed it up just enough…

Either way, Russell is about to be burned at the stake, but things get complicated when there is a divide between Sanctum. Clarke realizes that they will now need to keep Russell alive, which means that Sheidheda’s plan is working all to well.

4

“Fighting is what we are.”

During the episode, Clarke deals with the consequences of her actions, realizing that she lost herself when she called for Russell’s life. She stands before her mother’s grave and tells her that she will do her best to make her proud, but Clarke is clearly having a tough time here.

Clarke comes to the realization that they keep ending up in the same place and that perhaps “fighting is what they are.” We know that the end is in sight here, but is there a way for Clarke to help her people finally find some kind of normalcy and peace? Let’s hope so.

I am also loving the new friendship between Clarke and Gaia and perhaps there is a little bit more here to ship. I’m a Bellarke fan for life, but I can’t ignore some of the vibes being thrown our way.

3

“We’ll all die…”

Oh, is that all. As if Sanctum doesn’t have enough to deal with, Raven stumbles upon an unstable reactor that could destroy everyone. She is faced with a difficult task, but is up for the challenge with Memori’s help, but I’m not sure that everyone is going to make it.

Either way, let’s keep giving Raven and Memori screen time because they deserve it!

2

“We cannot ask The Commander because there is no Commander!”

Well, that makes things complicated. Raven is looking for members of Wonkru to volunteer as tribute to help her fix the reactor and she wants people she can trust. Indra, Clarke, and Gaia clash over whether or not to involve Madi, but Gaia ultimately decides to tell everyone that there is no more Commander.

Wonkru is outraged and Indra points out, “You just lost Wonkru.” There is now an even greater divide among the people in Sanctum, which I’m sure Sheidheda will use to his advantage.

It looks like Raven will need to turn to the prisoners for help now…

1

“You’re the Queen of doing the impossible.”

That’s a great way to describe our girl, Raven and our favorite cockroach is back in action as well. Only, the moral compass is certainly wavering back and forth here. After convincing the prisoners to help with the cause, Raven fails to mention how dangerous this task really is.

Since Murphy and Emori have Nightblood, they will most likely be fine with some radiation exposure, but others won’t be so lucky. Things get beyond tense when Murphy and Emori work to bring down the pressure, but when everyone starts getting sick, Raven realizes that the radiation is leaking more than she realized.

She recognizes that the prisoners will die and Murphy tries to get her to see reason and even points out that perhaps she can get in there and fix what is wrong. Raven clings to the delegation role here; however, and the few prisoners lose their lives in order to save the many.

It would have been nice to let them know that they were sacrificing their lives though…

Raven has done the impossible again to save her people, but has she just crossed a line? We’ll have to wait and see, but I don’t think things are going to calm down at all on Sanctum.

May we meet again.

Stay tuned!

My performance of the week ending 5/30/20 on TV goes to…

Marie Avgeropoulos as Octavia Blake on The CW’s The 100.

Let’s talk about one of the most brilliant and incredible character transformations on a television series of all time. The quiet girl under the floor has stepped out of her big brother’s shadow, embracing love, heartache, leadership, loss, and happiness. While a lot of the attention still centers around Clarke, Octavia has quickly become the heart and soul of The 100 and season 7, episode 2 is another great example of this.

Please note spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on season 7.

It’s not easy finding your way, especially when you grew up as a secret. Octavia only really knew Bellamy as her family, but she quickly became a reliable member of the group once our favorite characters made it down to earth.

After experiencing life out in the open with brand new eyes, Octavia met the love of her life, Lincoln. Their love was beautiful and transcendent of everything else around them, but Lincoln was killed in front of her, which was one of the most heartbreaking moments of the entire series for me.

Octavia turned her grief into strength and trained with Indra to become an unstoppable warrior. She was driven by revenge and eventually shattered her moral compass when she became the leader of Wonkru…Blodreina. Remember that familiar chant?

“You are Wonkru or you are the enemy of Wonkru. Choose…”

Well, it’s not much of a choice when the alternative is death, but Blodreina transformed into a ruthless leader, but there were still glimmers of humanity within her. We later discovered that Octavia took on all of the burden so that no one else had to. As much as you wanted to hate her for her actions, you couldn’t.

Bellamy has always been able to bring Octavia back, but after their huge fallout, Octavia seemed truly alone. Her friendship with Diyoza allowed her to head down a path toward redemption as she stumbled across the mysterious anomaly.

After watching season 7, episode 2, Marie Avgeropoulos had me in tears once again. Her letter to Bellamy was so heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time. Octavia has finally learned what it means to love again, bonding with Diyoza and her daughter, Hope. Even though she has a new family, she still holds Bellamy close to her heart and wants him to know that she now understands.

This was such a huge moment for Octavia as a character. Through it all, she finally is able to recognize her mistakes and redeem herself to become someone others can always count on.

What’s next for Octavia? This is the final season of the series so it will be interesting to see if Octavia’s journey toward self-discovery is almost done. I’d love to see a reunion between her and Bellamy, but I also have a feeling that she may sacrifice everything to save him and her friends, which would make her an eternal hero. I’d also love to see another flashback or memory with Lincoln because it truly was the ultimate love story of the series.

Either way, I am so beyond impressed with Marie Avgeropoulos as an actress. She channels so much strength into her character and has shown us so many sides of Octavia. Some of them have been good and some of them have been on the other side of the spectrum, but everything she pours into her character is compelling and disturbingly real.

I can’t wait to see how it all ends and I will be an Octavia Blake fan for life!

May we meet again.

Stay tuned for a recognized performance on TV each week!

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.

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.

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.

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!
